What are Virtual Sports?
Virtual Sports have been a staple of our online platforms for many years, we run computer simulations of sporting events including but not limited to football, American football, basketball, horse racing and tennis. These controlled simulations are dictated by a computer using a random number generator, assuring its fairness, and guaranteeing that it is luck based. These RNGs are generally provided to us via a third-party for extra security.
These types of games began in the United Kingdom back in 2001 following the abandonment of that years Cheltenham Festival. The cancellation was caused by an outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease that prevented the movement of animals, yet in the ashes of that, Virtual Racing was born!
Over the years, the graphics of these games have improved so much that deciphering between the real and the virtual has become more and more difficult. With the success of virtual horse racing, more sports were added to our line-up, meaning these events re always available to play.
