Bet On Virtual Football

Whilst horse racing and greyhound racing may be popular in the virtual sports sections, football has also started to attract interest from players. The virtual football are usually graphical in format so it's a bit like betting on FIFA Playstation or Xbox highlights. You can watch the games and experience goals, saves and anything else of interest during the match. Full commentary is given too. You can bet on the final result, correct score, number of goals as well as other markets. Note that there's no inplay betting but you can create accumualators in the same way as real games.

The football games are simply determined by random number generations - and the teams don't often match up with those in real life. A lot of the matches involve international teams, but where domestic clubs are used the names are adapted due to copyright restraints. For example you may see will see ties such as Fulham Ravens v Aston City, Reading Magics v Sheffield Blades, Swansea Jacks v Islington Reds and Mersey Blues v Aston City. Most football fans will automatically pick up on which sides they're meant to be.

Featured Games

Virtual football is now a staple in the virtual sports sections of most bookmakers plus casino and bingo brands are getting in on the act. Where to play is much of a muchness as the game engines we believe are the same across most sites. Starburst is the same slot where ever you choose to play and that's pretty much the same case here. Ultimately it comes down to personal choice but here's just a few suggestions.

1. Union Park At Coral

Bet on a different match every three minutes with Coral's Virtual Football game. You can bet on home, away, draw as well as the correct score, number of goals plus handicaps can come into play too. The graphics aren't that great in our opinion and the commentary tends to be behind the game play!

2. World Cup At Paddy Power

Station Road is the location for Paddy Power's Virtual Football World Cup and Super League game. To be honest we assumed Super League was rugby! Games play every three minutes and you can wager on the outcome, number of goals and result. Commentary we think is by Clive Tyldesley although it is incredibly short and sweet. The live action is also compacted into a very small space too.

3. Striker Stadium At Ladbrokes

Ladbrokes run virtual football games every three minutes. Bet on the result, who will win and other markets as top sides run out at their Striker Stadium! Watch the highlights - wothout commentary - live from the Striker Stadium complete with sponsored billboards. You can choose between football and football rush. We're still unclear as to the difference between the two games.

Virtual Football Strategy

If you're hoping to find a strategic angle for betting on virtual football then in our view we don't think you'll find one. As in real life the match odds are a guide to the better team, but also as in real life the form book can be thrown out the window. Remember you're betting on the outcome of a computer generated result. Previous results don't matter. In essence virtual football is a slot machine with football results replacing the reels. The key to Virtual Football is treat it like a game, have fun whilst playing within your limits. In real life you might beat the bookies, in virtual sports you're probably not going to do so!

One thing that has changed with respect to Virtual Football betting is that wagering is now limited to individual games. In the past some brands ran whole seasons. These usually lasted 24 hours and involved all games across an entire league. This meant that you could bet on the winners, relegations and final positions.
