LeCroupier.com -  First 'true' 3D Online Casino Experience

21 April, 2009,  Peter Bowman, Staff writer

This is gong to be very interesting.  In what they claim is a world first, Lucien Barrière Hotels and Casinos have launched a full 3D casino environment allowing players to create realistic avatars and explore a virtual environment.  And gamble of course if they so choose.  Their new casino can be found at Lecroupier.com.

The avatar gaming concept is not new.  Many casinos and poker rooms allow players to play select avatars as their online identity.  And the concept of an avatar that can roam a virtual gambling environment is also not new.  Avatar casino had a crack at this back in 1999, with limited success.

What is new, is the level of sophistication of the game engine driving the graphics - Gamebryo.  This is the same game engine used on blockbuster PC and console gaming releases like Fallout 3, Oblivion and Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. 

For those not familiar with gaming, these are the types of game that they advertise in leaders at the movies, and for the first few moments you are trying to work out whether the characters are real or computer generated.

It will be very interesting to see how Lecroupier.com fairs against the established net casino software leaders like Microgaming and Playtech with this new offering.
