Will AR and VR Be a Reality in the Social Casino Industry?

(KamaGamesBlog)  The casino industry as a whole, not just the social casino side, are intrigued by the entire concept of both Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) and the massive possibilities unlocking this technology could bring. It would be safe to say that with the obvious exception of the “Adult Entertainment Industry” the vision of an AR/VR casino would be pretty impressive and be a perfect fit within the gaming genre.
One of the biggest issues is the hardware. There is no doubt that there is significant financial backing from financial institutions and there are some fantastic top tier developers working on the software but where is the consumer demand and which platform is going to be the most successful? Will VR dominate on a PC platform where owners will need to pay a significant premium to run AAA quality VR games through the Oculus hardware or will the console giants bring VR to the masses through their own hardware peripherals for their next generation consoles?
