William Hill's Virtual Reality Gambling Products Planned for 2016

William Hill plc is making progress with the development of its Virtual Reality gambling products as reported by BBC news.

Horse racing will be offered with the use of Google Cardboard or Oculus Rift technology to deliver a full VR experience. GPS racetrack data will be made available as well as optional information such as the horse's heart rate, stride and race position.

The roll out of various race courses and live races is planned for 2016 with the concept ready for review by the end of this year.

Virtual Reality will become an added feature within the William Hill app giving the user the option to watch the race as a spectator or from the jockey's point of view.

VR technology may also launch in some retail betting shops and complimentary Google Cardboard headsets may be available at racecourses as part of a marketing scheme.

    I know that a new technologies have been developed all the time but for all the horse racing fans it will be a an amazing experience when they will be able to receive information such as the horse's heart rate, and the option to watch the race as a spectator or jockey! Virtual Reality products really should sound exiting for all the horse racing fans.

    Lol. It could be very interesting to experience the excitement of a horse race from the jockey’s perspective. This is a very good developing and great idea by William Hill. High five. I'm sure I will buy a Google Cardboard to try this new function (or I'll make my homemade one).
