Video Review: Virtual reality games in Las Vegas

1 January 2020

Walk into The LINQ Hotel + Experience and you might not immediately realize you just stepped into a casino. Instead, you’ll stumble across a series of virtual reality games in Las Vegas, complete with leather couches, big-screen TVs, Xbox Ones and Oculus Go VR headsets.

The Linq officially unveiled the VR rig this month, but had been working on integrating new technologies into its space for some time, explained Caesars Entertainment executive VP Christian Stuart. “We started about 18 months ago, determined that we really needed to innovate the casino environment, and go after people that are digital in nature.”

The Linq isn’t alone in betting big on virtual reality in Las Vegas to help keep the 42 million visitors flocking to the city every year. In recent months, Vegas has become a kind of virtual reality hub, with VR arcades and location-based VR entertainment centers opening up in casinos, shopping centers and new entertainment destinations.
