As the popularity of virtual reality skyrockets, The Orleans in Las Vegas steps up to the launch pad. Its newfound Virtual Zone is now open to the public, offering B Connected Members the opportunity to win some cash based on their ability to hit targets using a bow and arrow in virtual reality.
The addition to the casino comes as the time of Millennials begins to take hold of the city. While traditional gambling will always be in demand, Millennials' taste grows beyond this as they search for entertainment more appeasing to the brain with the continued excitement of gambling with money. The casinos are recognizing the demand for high-quality and technologically advanced entertainment, proceeding with new additions like The Orleans' newfound Virtual Zone.
The competitions and tournaments are daily, using HTC Vive VR technology to submerge players into a competitive virtual realm where you must battle and defend your castle from the enemy. Scoring is based on the number of targets successfully hit with your bow and arrow.
There's currently two games to choose from in the Virtual Zone:
- Siege VR - You and a partner defend your castle. $30 to play with a grand prize of $300 for the team with the highest score.
- Archery VR - Single player test of accuracy and skill. $10 to play with a grand prize of $125 for the person with the best accuracy and most targets hit.
The Orleans Virtual Zone is located adjacent to Bailiwick and gaming hours are as follows:
Saturday & Sunday: 2pm-10pm
