Playtech Launches Innovative Virtual Tennis

Playtech is one of the world’s leading online slots developers, and the company continues to branch out into other areas of the gaming world. Its most recent development is the launch of a new innovative virtual tennis game.

Virtual Tennis is the first of several Virtual Sports releases from PlayTech. The company has spent the past year working on the project, spending time at one of the biggest Warner Bros film studios in the United Kingdom. Using over 100 cameras, the team of developers captured the movements and actions of professional sports figures in a process that is similar to the effects utilised in films like Avatar and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

You can take a look at the teaser below to see what all the fuss is about:

“The team has done a phenomenal job and we’re delighted and incredibly proud of the results,” says Elliott Norris, Head of Virtual Sports at Playtech. “The graphics are mind-blowing and we are the only company able to offer full sports simulations meaning that betting and gameplay are as realistic as possible.”

The new Virtual Tennis game will be available at Playtech casinos across the web. Over the course of the next year, the operator will be rolling out other Virtual Sports like football, horseracing and basketball. Players can look forward to accessing a whole range of different virtual games that are powered by Playtech.

Virtual reality is set to be a huge trend in the video gaming world. So, Playtech is certainly in tune with what players want. It will be interesting to see these new Virtual Sports titles paired with VR technology like the Oculus Rift.
