In a world where many traditional sporting events have been put on hold or cancelled, virtual sports are seeing an increase in popularity. But how do virtual sports differ to real life action events? Let’s take a closer look.
They Are Not Real Games
Virtual sports differ to traditional sports in the fact that these are not real games. The players are computer generated and the action, and thus the results, are determined by random computer generated events. Essentially these are stimulations of sporting events, typically used for betting purposes.
Virtual Sports Happen All The Time
Virtual sports operators have games available 24/7, meaning you can tune in to a game no matter where you are in the world, at any time of the day. You don’t need to try and match time zones or wait until your favourite sport’s season comes around. Weather or unexpected events won’t affect whether your virtual sporting event will go ahead.
A Fast Paced Betting Experience
Unlike traditional sports where players have to wait at least 90 minutes for the result, and days or weeks until the next game, virtual sports offers a fast pace experience. Although you will be able to watch an engaging digital version of the action unfolding, typically this only lasts for a few minutes. You wouldn’t sit down and watch an entire match as one would with live sporting events.
Players can also make a number of bets, even using different devices simultaneously to increase their chances of winning. Since the volume of games is essentially limitless there are also more chances to bet and the learning curve of betting is reduced as you have quicker turnaround times.
Players Don’t Need Knowledge Of The Sport
Unlike in traditional sports betting, virtual sports betting players don’t need a vast knowledge of the players, recent happenings or even the sport for that matter to place a bet, and win.
Virtual sports betting is in fact a great arena in which to try your hand at gambling if you have never bet before. You simply select the sport you are interested in, select the team you want to bet on based on the statistics displayed, place your bets and wait for the result. You don’t need an intensive knowledge of the players, their injuries, their personal lives or any of that in order to strike it big.
It’s Strongly Regulated
Unlike traditional sports betting, which has seen a number of regulation discrepancies in recent years, the world of virtual sports betting is very well regulated. Operators need to be registered with the gambling operators in your region and with only a small amount of homework, it’s unlikely that you will find your self in the middle of a scam operation.
Bet On A Variety Of Sports In One Place
While on site sports booking centres at traditional games only allow you to bet on the sport actually played there, virtual sportsbook operators offer up a variety of different sports to players. You can choose to watch virtual football, bet on a virtual horse race, or even gamble on greyhound racing. The options are endless.
