Ladbrokes' Wide Range of Virtual SportsTuesday, Aug 22, 2017 14:12
Virtual Sports are a great way to bet on your favourite sports even in the off-season or in when it’s too late for them to be on. It takes out the waiting element too, as these games go on all day and night and are super regular to play. Some people don’t quite trust the virtual sports systems but rest assured that the Ladbrokes Virtual Sports are extremely fair and are regularly tested to prove that is still the case.
Where to Find Them
The virtual sports section of Ladbrokes is rather easy to find. When you are on the front page of Ladbrokes simply cast your eyes upward toward the black banner at the very top of the page. Here you will see the different services that Ladbrokes have to offer and by clicking on one of them you will be brought directly to the page that is dedicated to that option.
On this black banner look for the fourth option from the right of the page and you will see the word ‘Virtuals’. Click on this word and you will be linked to the Virtual sports page.
Here you can place your bets on any of the pretend races or matches they have to offer.
Virtual Horse Racing
Probably Ladbrokes’s most popular virtual sports betting event and one that has been around for a long time. The set-up is simple, just place bets on who you expect to win or do a forecast/tricast to choose who you expect to place 1st, 2nd & 3rd. Just like in real racing each of the horses has different odds which you can use to weigh up your decision as to who you want to bet on. All you then have to do is sit back and watch the virtual race happen. The virtual race has all the tension and thrill of a real race but just happens more often.
If football is more your thing then you can also place bets on Ladbrokes’s regular virtual football matches. Ladbrokes set two teams against each other and simulate the result allowing you to bet on who you think will win. There are a couple of different games you can bet on, such as ‘INVERNESS CATS V DUNDEE CASTLE FC’ and CYPRUS V BOSNIA HERZEGOVINA, each with their own odds and expectations. You can place bets on who will win or if it will be a draw, what score it will be and how many goals there will be.
The set-up of the virtual tennis is very similar to that of the football, you place your bets on who wins, on how many points are scored and what the correct win score will be. Then you simply let the simulation do its thing and see if you were right in your assertions.
Cycling, Motor Sports & Greyhounds
Due to the fact that these are all racing events, they are extremely similar to the horse racing set-up in that you bet on which racer you think will win. The only main difference is the flavour of the race so if you’re a fan of one of these more than the others you may want to place your bets on a particular one.
