WHAT ARE VIRTUAL SPORTS?
Virtual sports games are short computer simulations of sports matches and events that reflect high-profile real sports events. Before the action starts, you can place a bet (or multiple bets) on certain things happening during the event.
For example, if it was a virtual ice hockey match, you could bet on which team you think will win or the money line.
Then the event plays out in under a minute, with amazing graphics and animations bringing the event to life. Virtual sports betting events run on random number generators (RNGs) to create genuinely chance results.
Popular events include:
Football – Find teams, players, and stadiums based on their real-world equivalents. Bet on a wide range of markets like Match Result, First Goalscorer, and Correct Score.
American Football – Bet on the Money Line, Points Spread, Result, and much more.
Horse racing – rapid races where you can bet win only or each-way on your favorite horse.
Greyhound racing – Choose which dog you think will win and then feel the rush as the race unfolds.
Motorsports – Formula 1-style action without the long races! Quickfire races with cool cars and drivers with characteristics of those in the offline sport!
Basketball – Slam dunk your ways to big wins with representative matches on the court featuring dazzling gameplay.
New virtual sports betting events are being added all the time!
HOW TO PLAY VIRTUAL SPORTS
It really is as simple as choosing your event, placing a bet, and then enjoying the action play out!
Firstly, find a virtual sports betting event you are interested in. If you are a football fan then you may want to choose football. If you like horse racing, then likewise, you may want to bet on a virtual race.
Or you may wish to try something new. The choice is yours!
Before the next scheduled event starts, you will be presented with betting markets on various things happening during the event.
For example, in a virtual football match, you would be able to bet on which team will win, how many goals there will be, what the half-time score will be, and many more.
These betting markets are presented exactly as you would see them on a sportsbook. For example, the home team to win may be at odds of 1.85, while the draw is 3.85, and the away win is 4.55.
You would select the market you want to bet on, then enter your stake, and place the bet. The event plays out, and if your bet wins, you will be paid out your winnings immediately.
If you were betting on a virtual horse racing event, you would bet on a horse winning or on extra markets like the winning distance, for example.
You will see various stats presented which you can use to guide your bets. These include things like recent form, but the past should never be used as a guide to what will happen in the future. Results are random!
VIRTUAL SPORTS VS ESPORTS
Virtual sports betting shouldn’t be confused with esports betting. The latter is real-life betting on what will happen in esports events taking place in locations across the world.
Betting on virtuals is random fun, while esports betting involves making assessments about each team’s strengths and weaknesses and making an educated guess on what will happen.
Virtual sports betting is popular with Canadian bettors because there are new events starting all the time, they play out very quickly - so if you have bad luck on one you can try again - and there’s no real skill involved.
Esports betting is a different type of gambling activity, and Mount Gold Casino currently doesn’t offer this type of wagering.
