Virtual reality gambling expected to grow 800 percent by 2021
With the advances in technology and the corresponding growth in interest from major key players, VR is now in a position where the market can finally take off. Juniper released its study late last year into augmented reality across multi platforms and key findings were gambling wagers within VR are set to rise 800 percent in the next five years driven by "high rollers" using the technology. The total number of bets from VR gambling will grow from just over £47.2 million this year, to just under £423 million by 2021.
Online gambling is one industry that is becoming quite vocal within the VR conversation. In the UK alone, online gambling generates around £3bn annually, and this figure is only expected to climb as online casinos and mobile gambling apps continue to become more sophisticated and widely used. Mobile gambling itself presents a significant opportunity for the industry to engage with new players, growing by 10% annually and predicted in recent forecasts to account for 40% of all online gambling in the next three years.
