Virtual Greyhound Racing
Where there's virtual horse racing there's usually virtual greyhound racing not far behind. Aside from the obvious difference in that the racing involves dogs and not horses, virtual greyhound racing tends to have a smaller racing field. This means the odds range is shorter across the runners and riders. It also tends to be more computer generated races. In many respects this could become the future of greyhound racing with the sport constantly under threat.
As with other virtual sports, virtual greyhound action comes thick and fast as new games run every three minutes - two minutes if you choose sprint races that are available at some sites. To wager on a race you simply make your bet or bets and then wait for the action to start. With virtual greyhound racing you can bet on the winner as well as each way odds. In addition you can opt to take on forecast and tricast results.
Pretty much every main bookmaker now offers Virtual Sports as an option to players. Even casino and bingo brands are getting in on the act as the lines of sportsbook, casino and bingo blur. For example Sun Bingo have recently launched their own Virtual Sports channel.
Visit Coral's Virtual Sports section and you'll be able to watch the greyhound racing action at their Barking Hall virtual course. There's a new race every three minutes 24/7. The graphics are good and there's commentary to go along with the racing.
Bet365 have a number of virtual sports options including greyhounds. And within the virtual greyhound section you can wager on three different games. Bennett Park for 1 minute bullet racing, Goldenhill Park for hurdles and Hillside Park for flat racing. Note that to view the action you do need to be logged in to the site.
Like Bet365, William Hill have three different options for virtual greyhound racing. Long Hare Hill is home of the flat racing, Birch Park offers hurdles whilst Shoreditch Stadium is for sprint racing. Races start every three minutes except for the sprints which start every two. The graphics are impressive and there are options for tricast and forecast bets on your betting slip.
Is There A Strategy
As with real life greyhound racing there are favourites and outsiders in the virtual field. You could use these as guides but whether they'll help you in terms of strategy is another matter. You aren't given form guides nor is there any background on participants. In essence it's like picking a winner when playing a horse racing game at a beachside arcade. In fact this is perhaps the best approach. Treat it like a game rather than a sport to bet on!
Because it's essentially a computerised game, we think that virtual sports require the same respect as slots and table games. Bookies are keen for you to wager on game after game with the fast and furious approach. It is designed to keep your interest and encourage you to keep playing. In many respects it's a case of decide how much you're willing to play, play and then walk away. Wagering terms and conditions may apply to bonus offers and above all please gamble responsibly.
