mGamingWatch learned Thursday that GameAccount Network plc ( or “GAN”), a developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gaming tech and content, has launched a Virtual Reality Simulated Gaming application for GAN’s first continuing US client – New York’s Empire City Casino.
The app, we’re told, is compatible with suitable home personal computers and Facebook’s Oculus Rift VR headsets.
VR is an emerging platform for online entertainment with Facebook’s Oculus Rift VR headsets now shipping to consumers. GAN is positioned at the forefront of this emerging market, offering a unique VR experience to patrons of land-based US casino clients.
“Virtual reality has finally arrived and GAN is first-to-market in the US with a VR casino experience delivered to Empire City Casino in New York,” says Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN. “Designed to engage, captivate and compel incremental time-on-device and revenue from patrons, GAN’s VR add-on module for Simulated Gaming is anticipated to attract the 30-54year old male gaming enthusiast, likely to be among the early adopters of PC VR.”
