The push for better 3D gambling software is something many avid interactive gaming fans have been advocating for some time, especially with the strong development of three-dimensional films and three-dimensional video games.
Many pokies already offer such high graphics and visuals that the player feels like he or she is immersed in a video game, and the 3D element which some titles incorporate adds that extra depth.
But developers have only scratched the surface of designing three-dimensional interactive gambling software, and what lies ahead in the near future is something to be very excited about.

The stereoscopic technique in online pokies
Microgaming took a step towards genuine 3D gaming when it introduced the well known Sterling Silver pokies title, allowing players to wear the blue and red glasses to experience more intense graphics – reels and winning symbols leaping out from the screen and offering greater player engagement.
The 3D effect seen in the Sterling Silver game uses the stereoscopic technique: where multiple two-dimensional images overlay one another (known as offset imaging) to create an illusion of depth (the brain processes the images as one three-dimensional image).
However, the game doesn’t offer the complete effect that a film, for example, would. The design still requires improvement.
The Animated Technique
BetSoft Gaming is well known for its range of 3D pokies titles, too. However, BetSoft utilises a different type of three-dimensional imagery to Microgaming’s stereoscopic technique.
BetSoft works with 3D animation, like you would see in animated Disney or Dream Works films, or any other animated film studio production.This high definition effect allows for an immersive and intricate design of pokies games, with characters and features taking on a whole new dimension through visually impressive and outstanding graphics.
Some of the most popular 3D animated pokies produced by BetSoft include:
- At the Copa (progressive jackpot)
- It Came from Venus (progressive jackpot)
- True Illusions
- At the Movies
- Good Girl, Bad Girl (progressive jackpot)
- Glam Life (progressive jackpot)
- Greedy Goblins (progressive jackpot)
- Mr. Vegas (progressive jackpot)
- Safari Sam
- Under the Bed
- Enchanted (progressive jackpot)
- Aztec Treasures
- 2 Million B.C.
- A Night in Paris (progressive jackpot)
- Slots Angels (progressive jackpot)
- Rooks Revenge
- Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
- The Slotfather (progressive jackpot)
These animation techniques are just the tip of the iceberg for developers, and below the surface lies heavier and more sophisticated software that is already being trialled across different platforms.
The Slots Million Virtual Reality Casino
There is one popular online casino website with a dedicated section for 3D gambling.Featuring a selection of its most popular games, Slots Million Casino has produced an advanced and immersive virtual casino floor, boasting 360 degrees views of an electric and compelling environment.
To enjoy this complete casino experience, simply install the software onto your computer. You can either play inside the VR casino with or without Oculus Rift glasses – a virtual reality headset that is changing the way we game.
Without the glasses, you will view the VR casino in 3D on your computer screen. With the glasses, you are completely surrounded by HD graphics, visuals and sounds of the impressively designed casino gaming floor, any way you look.
This is the most progressive type of 3D animations for interactive gambling to date, and it is constantly being revised and improved upon. And while we haven’t yet reached the point where mastered stereoscopic pokies are the norm, what awaits us in the next few months and years will revolutionise the gaming and gambling industries.
Software developers will better the 3D effect, whether it be utilising the stereoscopic technique or variations of it, and together with virtual reality gaming, they are in the process of creating an entirely new medium to enjoy real money casino and pokies games.
