Virtual Greyhounds

Added: January 6, 2013

Online gamblers today can now place real cash wagers on various virtual racing events, such as Virtual Greyhounds (Virtual Dogs). Other virtual events that are proving to be equally popular with online gambling enthusiasts include Virtual Motor Racing, Virtual Horse Racing, Virtual Speedway and even Virtual Football.

For each virtual sport there is, a new event will generally take place every 3 to 5 minutes and they will continue to run throughout the day, 24/7, so you can always find some kind of virtual event to put your money on. The results are random and they are worked out by reliable mathematical systems. This means that you can use the odds to try and pick a winner.

The outcomes are just as realistic as in real life and you can rest assured that at any leading gambling portal that does offer virtual betting services, the results are as fair as can be. For example, the ‘favourite’ will not always come in first place and also the ‘outsiders’ often have a chance of coming in second, or even occasionally winning like in real life.

Usually with the Virtual Greyhounds, there are six runners and when placing a bet you should be able to change the odds between fractions/decimals/american. To pick an outright winner, all you have to do is select one of the dogs that you think will win and then simply put a bet on that dog. There is usually a minimum bet at most sites. At some online sportsbooks, the minimum bet may be as little as $/€/£0.10, but at other sites the minimum bet per event could be $/€/£0.50.

Once you have placed your bet, you should receive an onscreen confirmation notifying you that your bet went actually through. Remember to place your bet before the timer reaches zero, otherwise you will have to wait for the next event. All you have to do once you have placed one or more bets is to wait for the event to begin. This is where the fun really begins.

Punters actually get to watch each virtual event unfold on the screen and you can generally view the event either in a small manageable screen or in the fullscreen mode, but if you really want to maximise your virtual experience, we recommend playing with the volume turned right up and viewing the event in the fullscreen mode. Most events also have commentators explaining the action as it unfolds.

The average virtual race or match lasts for no more than 45 seconds and if you win, this cash should appear in your account within 20-30 seconds after the event has finished. If you have never experienced Virtual Gambling, we can definitely recommend checking out any of the virtual events discussed here, but only at a secure and fully licensed online sportsbetting site.
