What is Virtual Sports Betting?

Virtual sports betting is exactly the same as betting on real-life sports. The virtual games are played out on your screen—and your task is to correctly predict outcomes from the games and bet on them. The odds are similar to sports odds in real-life. This means markets such as match winner, first team to score, over/unders and handicaps apply to many virtual sports.

Betting on virtual sports is very easy and the beauty of the format is that there’s always an upcoming game to follow. Most sports such as football and basketball play out in a league format, where you can place bets on individual games or the full season.

What’s more, games only last around for minutes, with highlights being shown on your screen. This means you can access the best virtual sports odds and watch the events unfold in front of you!
