volution announced the launch of Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt, an online live game show and casino game that brings together live and slots-style gameplay with the option to play in VR (Virtual Reality) mode.

Inspired by the Gonzo character and intellectual property (IP) from NetEnt’s popular Gonzo’s Quest online slots title, the all-new Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt is the latest addition to Evolution’s live game shows portfolio, and it is the first Evolution game to use NetEnt IP following Evolution’s acquisition of NetEnt at the end of last year.

The central feature of Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt is the search for hidden treasures in a giant wall of 70 stones. In this latest version of Gonzo’s adventures, the explorer ‘comes alive’ as an augmented reality virtual character and joins the live show hosts and players in the search. Users will also have the option to play and bet on Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt in VR mode using a Virtual Reality headset and controller.

The Chief Product Officer at Evolution Todd Haushalter, said: “This is our first product that combines the best of NetEnt with Evolution. I’ve been excited to work with the amazing NetEnt intellectual property since the acquisition was announced and we are starting by taking the most famous character in slots and bringing him to live casino.”

Haushalter continued: “This is also the first live game ever where players have such a high degree of control over their game strategy and the potential outcome. Unlike other games where the result is the result and there is nothing, you can do about it, in Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt players take control as they go hunting for their prizes. This is a whole new direction for our game shows as we want to widen the definition of what a game show is, giving the player this level of control will attract a new audience to Evolution. We are continuing to evolve what the gambling experience can be, and this is an incredibly exciting landmark launch.”
