VRstudios, a virtual reality technology company based in Bellevue offering wireless immersive commercial entertainment and enterprise solutions, has partnered with Muckleshoot Casino in Auburn to install its wireless, full-motion, multi-player virtual reality system and experiences. The move makes Muckleshoot Casino the first gaming facility in the nation to offer streaming wireless virtual reality and is already proving to be a hit with customers.

“People of all ages are loving this riveting new experience. Some customers are so enthralled they’ve played VRstudios’ games more than 15 times in a single night and then returned the next evening for another round of fun,” said Junior Maldonado, Entertainment Manager of Muckleshoot Casino.

The revolutionary virtual reality system is being offered in the casino’s popular nightlife venue, Club Galaxy. One- and two-player experiences transport guests back in time to a town overrun by zombies or into the midst of a Western-style shoot-out.

Muckleshoot Casino chose VRstudios to continue its long track record for industry-changing, world-class entertainment. In only a few weeks, the VRstudios platform solution and experiences are already attracting new customers to the biggest casino in the Pacific Northwest.

Muckleshoot is the first casino in the country to offer wireless virtual reality.

“With VRstudios, Muckleshoot Casino is now home to a new form of entertainment never before offered, not only in the region, but in casino gaming,” said Conrad Granito, General Manager of Muckleshoot Casino. “We chose VRstudios for its superior VR capabilities and rich immersive content. Our groundbreaking partnership ensures our ability to continually offer the newest forms of VR games. It reflects our commitment to delivering unique, must-experience entertainment to our guests.”

VRstudios has installed their virtual reality systems and content with customers and partners in eleven countries throughout Asia, Europe, Middle East, Russia and the United States. The Muckleshoot relationship marks the company’s first announcement of a casino installation.

“VRstudios’ industry-first approach to VR is attracting U.S. and international theme parks, family entertainment centers, arcades and other entertainment venues,” added Kevin Vitale, President of VRstudios. “Entertainment companies are discovering that our platform and solutions can help evolve and grow their businesses, as well as increase customer loyalty.”

The entertainment industry is proving to be serious business for VRstudios. During recent months, the company has attracted high-visibility relationships and partnerships with entertainment and distribution leaders across the world, such as Universal Studios Orlando, Meraas’ Hub Zero in Dubai, Korea’s Simuline, Smartlaunch in Europe, and North America’s Stampede.
