I’m not sure if it’s the only bookmaker to do this, but bet365 offers virtual sports betting.
The virtual sports each take 90 seconds to run, and are streamed live with nice quality video. The events run every three minutes, twenty-four hours a day, giving punters an endless source of gambling opportunities. The available sports are horse racing, greyhounds, speedway, grand prix motor racing, and soccer. Below are some screen shots of the available sports.
I won’t be spending too much time with these events. For me the main attraction of sports betting is the fact that the bookmakers guess, rather than know, the real odds. With craps, roulette, and other casino games the odds are fixed and known. The payouts are rigged to provide a house advantage that can’t be beaten in the long run. The virtual betting provided by bet365 is very similar in that in the long run the bookmaker will earn an exact house advantage, with the software set to ensure it.
Having said that, I’m sure some punters will love the fact that betting opportunities are available every three minutes. I have to give credit to bet365 for their ingenuity.
