When keno first advanced from a pub game to an online casino game, we were wowed by the technology and digital accessibility, but as technology rapidly expands, online keno has become just the tip of the iceberg.
In a ground-breaking move, Gamblit Gaming has just unveiled a partnership with Phosphor Games to bring the virtual reality shooter style video game, The Brookhaven Experiment, into land based casinos. The collaboration intends to entice younger players who prefer video games to table games or pokie machines, and essentially breed a new generation of real money gamblers.
The Brookhaven Experiment is a VR survival shooter game where players use weapons and tools to defeat evil monsters in a bid to stop the end of the world from happening. It’s become an incredibly popular game compatible for use with the HTC Vive, with over 50 million views online, and will no doubt be successful in attracting younger players to a bricks and mortar casino. By tapping into the casino market, The Brookhaven Experiment will allow players to place real money wagers on things like whether or not they think they’ll survive the next hit of zombie attackers.
Chief marketing officer of Gamblit Gaming, David Lowenstein, released a statement saying, “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Phosphor Games to bring this first of its kind VR gambling experience to life. The Brookhaven Experiment is not only the most petrifying, heart stopping and realistic experience I’ve had in VR, but it truly embodies the concept of virtual reality. Phosphor Games is a company that pushes the boundaries of innovation and we are excited to be revolutionizing the casino floor with them in an all new wagering experience – and judging from everyone who has played it, a very memorable one for players and their friends.”
Gamblit is a Californian company that’s leading the tech industry when it comes to interactive gaming combined with real money gambling. Their creations enable a wide range of video games to accommodate cash wagers, both online and offline. While Gambit’s catalogue doesn’t yet include any keno variants, we’re excited by the prospect of what they might eventually come up with.
CEO of Phosphor Games Studio, Justin Corcoran, is excited to see what Gamblit can do with their game. He released a statement saying, “With The Brookhaven Experiment, we wanted to be on the forefront of the video game industry as it stepped into the new world of virtual reality, and now with this fantastic partnership with Gamblit Gaming, we have the opportunity to be on the forefront of the transformation of the real-money gaming industry as well.”
Gamblit’s new virtual reality gaming experiences are scheduled to launch in land based casinos in 2017.
