Immotion Group PLC (LON:IMMO) shares jumped on Friday as the out of home virtual reality firm announced it has won a US$500,000 contract that will see it make three exclusive immersive experiences for Dutch entertainment group, iP2Entertainment.

Not only does Immotion make VR ‘pods’ that you see in arcades and shopping centres, but it also makes the games and experiences that go with them.

Work on the three experiences is expected to be completed by November. They will then be available for iP2Entertainment centres' visitors towards the end of the year and into 2020.

As part of the deal, Immotion will be able to use the content in some of its own VR arcades.
