Global VR gambling market: VR as a cure for gambling addiction
In the gambling sector, VR is used as a technique to cure gambling addiction. VR is seen as a secure virtual environment for gambling addicts. It provides an environment conducive to replicating the cravings of addicts. VR helps therapists to study the behavior of their subjects as technology enables therapists to monitor and determine the progress of individuals.
“Therapists are authorized to provide gambling addicts with a VR environment which caters to the needs of their subjects. Addicts with strong cravings are gently ushered into a VR world where the noise levels, number of slot machines, and number of players is reduced, thereby reducing the intensity of the environment. Therefore, VR is used as a tool to cure gambling addictions,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on gaming.
