Greek operator Stoiximan has developed the “world’s first” mixed-reality sports betting and casino product, available for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

The product, currently in a closed beta phase, has been in production for two years and offers users the ability to place live bets in a 360° environment and watch up to three games in live streaming simultaneously.

Other features include VR casino games, and interact and interactive UI that is movable with hand gestures.

George Kourakos, head of product design and innovation, said he expected the product to gain momentum after VR is mass-adopted by sports broadcasters.

During the World Cup, the BBC enabled fans to watch matches in VR. And in the US, NBA and NFL games are also available for certain VR headsets.

Kourakos also believes upcoming affordable VR and AR products to be launched by the likes of Facebook and Apple will help push the technology into the mainstream.

The concept for the product came from a lack of innovation in the betting market and has been developed in partnership with a third-party VR dev team in the US.


“Three years ago when we tried the Vive we saw a VR casino concept and we immediately believed it was the future of online gambling, starting from casino, but also expanding to other products,” Kourakos told EGR.

“We took a different approach and started thinking how a sportsbook in VR would look, and two years ago we created a proof of concept.”

The full product is likely to be made available to Stoiximan and Betano customers in Q4 2018 and will be available to download via the operator’s website.

In January, Kindred’s investment arm, Kindred Futures, explored a mixed reality sports data application for punters to be able to access player and game data in an immersive and interactive environment.
