What is Decentral Games?
Decentral Games is a company that builds gaming experiences in metaverse. It’s a social gaming platform that runs on the Decentraland metaverse. The best example of a metaverse experience is ICE Poker (it drives the most traffic in Decentraland). The casino games are funded by the DAO treasury.
What Does a Metaverse Casino Look Like?
Think of metaverse casino as a virtual 3D iteration of a typical land-based casino. Players can enter the metaverse by getting an NFT avatar. The games can be played with specific tokens – for example, ICE Poker can be played with $ICE tokens. The rewards from metaverse casino games can be redeemed for real money.
With a VR headset (or regardless), players can interact with other players on the table. This makes metaverse casinos hyperrealistic and deliver a more immersive experience.
On the same note, crypto casinos are quite the hype for 2022. Several big brands have started accepting payments in crypto; in addition to the specialized crypto casinos that exclusively cater to crypto iGamers. This is all hinting towards a brighter future for metaverse casinos, crypto casinos, and blockchain games.
