How Can Virtual Reality Enhance The Sports Betting Experience?
We can pretty much answer this question by examining exactly what virtual reality is…….
”the computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment that can be interacted within a seemingly real or physical way, by a person using special electronic equipment such as a helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors.”
In a nutshell this means that by donning a virtual reality headset, you can effectively be transported into a world that will feel as real as it possibly could without you actually being there in person.
To take the virtual reality concept (and how it relates to sports betting) a step further, consider the 2017 premier league opening game. It’s Spurs vs Man City, and you’ve placed a bet.
Now you put on your VR headset, and state of the art 360 degree cameras place you right at the heart of the action. It’s like you’re really there pitching in with the players. How great is that?
Even now, there are ways to play virtual poker and real money casino games in virtual reality, and it doesn’t take a lot of thought to work out how this could also be applied to sports betting on events such as horse racing, NFL games (some major games have already been streamed in VR), basketball or football matches, or tennis contests. In fact, pretty much any sport you can think of.
