Sci-fi Poker – What will Poker Look Like in the Future

Poker in Itself has come a long way, starting as a friendly game among friends to becoming one of the most popular casino-based games and, as it stands now, one of the biggest multiplayer online games.

If the last few years has taught us anything, it’s that the world of online gaming is always progressing to include new features for a more entertaining gaming experience. The same goes for online poker, starting as a fairly standard 2D game and now becoming one of the most entertaining by including multiple additional features such as customisable avatars, game features, table limits, game rules and much more.

With an incredibly fast progression in the online world, the future of poker surely seems bright. However, what else can be done to the game itself and how can it possibly better the game from where it is now? They are actually many developments in the casino industry that could change all forms of online gaming, not just poker but video slots, table games, live dealer games and bunch more.

Virtual Reality

One of the fastest-growing movements in iGaming involves virtual reality. Not only has this form of gaming enhancement become a popular choice for casino gamers, but all forms of gaming are shifting over to a more realistic experience.

When it comes to online poker, virtual reality could play a major role in how realistic the game is. For example, instead of seeing the table from above, you could be sitting at the table and seeing the game unfold as you would in a land-based casino. This could also include an exciting feature when it comes to the involvement and player avatars.

Virtual reality would also make it possible to walk around a virtual casino and sit down at a table that meets your requirements. Additionally, there would also be no limits when it comes to the casino’s theme, how things look and where the game is played. Therefore, for all we know, we might be playing our favourite variation of Texas Hold’em in a galaxy far away with aliens presenting the game and dealing the cards.

Mobile Gaming

Even though multiplayer online poker has already made the shift to mobile devices, there is still lots of room for improvement, especially when it comes to gaming features and the overall experience. Award winning poker rooms such as 888Poker started off by offering downloadable software for your computer, but today you can download a free application and play poker whenever you want.

However, most mobile poker games also feature the same standard birds-eye view of the table. Some are expecting the mobile poker experience to shift towards three-dimensional graphics that allow you to look around the table by simply moving your device. Should you move from side to side, the view of your seat would turn as if you were to turn your head and tilting the device allows you to look up and down. It would be interesting to see how developers combine this feature with your cards, how the game plays out and the way you see other players or dealers.

Unique Poker Variations

An interesting take on modern variations of poker has introduced a range of futuristic games, some of which relate to popular themes such as Star Wars, Firefly and Battlestar Galactica. Sure, some of these games don’t exactly relate to the game as we know it today, but they do offer an interesting range of new features.

You can even play a few games that change the rules completely, offering new ways to win and creating a whole new challenge as it wouldn’t include any professionals who’ve been playing for years. Some of these games may not be considered a new theme for the WSOP, but you might find a new range of tournaments featuring new games soon.

These types of games could go much further in the years to come. At the moment they aren’t very popular, but as today’s poker market becomes more challenging, we’re sure to see many players seek a new range of features to activate the same winnings and bring back an easier touch to the game of poker.
