Hybrid Evolves Further
As if Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt weren’t revolutionary enough, Evolution is taking it up a notch. The new game is playable in the VR regime, too! Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt is the first Evolution game to be playable as Virtual Reality.
The live game draws inspiration from NetEnt’s classic character Gonzo, first appearing in the 2013 video slot. The Swedish slot provider has had attempts at driving Gonzo to VR, but this is the first successful one. Recently, Evolution has acquired rivals NetEnt, Red Tiger, and Big Time Gaming.
The main feature of the original online slot is looking for the hidden treasure among 70 stones. The live variant reflects upon the mission and displays a live slot board with 70 positions.
Gonzo in the Flesh
This is a historic moment in iGaming.
Players can play Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt by using a VR headset and controller. The VR mode is now fully available. In turn, the game promises an extremely immersive gaming experience – as real as it gets.
Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, spoke about the launch.
“This is our first product that combines the best of NetEnt with Evolution. I’ve been excited to work with the amazing NetEnt intellectual property since the acquisition was announced and we are starting by taking the most famous character in slots and bringing him to live casino.”
Evolution CPO added, “This is also the first live game ever where players have such a high degree of control over their game strategy and the potential outcome. Unlike other games where the result is the result and there is nothing you can do about it, in Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt™ players take control as they go hunting for their prizes.”
Finally, Mr Haushalter concluded by saying:
“We are continuing to evolve what the gambling experience can be, and this is an incredibly exciting landmark launch.”
Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt is available from today on in all Evolution casinos.
