Virtual sports have gained immense popularity in the past few years due to the growing fascination with fantasy sports video games. Along with the growth of such sports comes the introduction of virtual sports betting.
At the intersection of sports and casino, virtual sports bring more excitement and entertainment options to sports fans who are fond of betting. The stunning yet realistically designed graphics and the enormous amount of sports choices make virtual sports a winning choice for any sports fan.
With the increasing popularity of virtual sports around the world, Winissimo Casino and Sportsbook have started offering v-sport games that boast high-quality graphics, offer numerous betting opportunities, and come close to creating a real-life atmosphere.
Let’s explore some of the most popular virtual sports at Winissimo in detail.
With 24/7 access to the thrills of the racetrack, Leap Gaming’s virtual horses allow players to bet on simulated races every few minutes, all day every day. The always-on aspect is perhaps the biggest allure of virtual horses because unlike real horse races, virtual horse races happen around the clock and are never cancelled due to bad weather.
After starting the game, bettors enter Leap Gaming’s virtual dashboard, which shows a list of horses set to race in the next race. You can choose any horse to win, place or bet each way, meaning that you get the full payout for double your stake if the horse wins, or bag a reduced return if it comes second or third. Of course, you can choose to bet on more than one horse if you wish. Just keep in mind that betting closes 10 seconds before the race start, so make sure you don’t ponder too much!
Sometimes a slot game based on sports just doesn’t quench your desire for live sports and you want the real deal. And Leap Gaming understands that fully as its Virtual Tennis comes as close to real as any online game to fulfilling your sports needs.
At any time, two matches are taking place “live” for bettors to watch and wager on. It’s worth noting that these games play out every point, rather than over a series of highlights. They’re based on statistics of real matches to make points play out more clearly. Besides these, all the tennis betting options in Virtual Tennis are displayed on a screen, similar to the sports betting action.
If it happens that you join when a match is mid-game, you can bet on the next point. Also, depending on where you’re in the game (set 1,2, or 3), you also have set betting options. In order to place your bets, you have to make your selection from the odds displayed, enter the stake in the pop-up slip and tap on the Place Bet button. You have 10 seconds between points to bet on the next point, and all bets are closed as soon as the game starts.
Another popular title by Leap Gaming, Instant Football is slick to play, provides excellent visuals of some of the best football teams on the planet in action and enormous betting opportunities. One of the best parts of playing Instant Football is that it gives you more control than many virtual sports.
After loading the game, you arrive at the main dashboard, in which two teams are lining up against each other, pre-match. You have the option to choose which teams you want to see do battle. After selecting the team, you choose your bets to the left of the teams. You can do this by toggling left and right or by selecting the bet to enter your stake.
Main bets in Instant Football are 1×2 (either team to win or draw), but just like online football betting, you have a wide variety of betting options. The Correct Score Bet is the highest bet available in this game. Predicting the correct score of any game is tricky, but if you land it you could win payouts of over x100 your stake. If you’re a novice player, the use of sports betting strategy can assist you in making improved bets in the game.
Virtual Greyhounds is a virtual betting game where players place bets on one more out of 6-8 dogs that are racing on a track. The round duration in Virtual Greyhounds is 3:45 minutes and consists of announcement/countdown, race and results. One of the interesting aspects of the game is that it has lots of variations in the dog’s behaviour thanks to AI and dynamic UI.
When it comes to placing bets, players can choose to bet on the win or place. If you’re well-versed with UK sports betting and have a strong understanding of virtual dog racing, then you can place an exacta (picking 1st and 2nd place) or a trifecta (picking 1st, 2nd and 3rd).
Cricket Star Scratch
Powered by Microgaming, Cricket Star Scratch is a sports-themed slot with many exciting features for cricket fans to enjoy. This action-packed slot game comes with unique reels that feature all of the famous players.
Before you start spinning the reels on the Cricket Star Scratch slot in an online casino, you need to select your bet size. Use the arrow buttons under the middle reels to adjust your bet denomination. Tapping on the “Bet” button will allow you to choose the coin size. Having done that, click on the “Spin” button to start the gameplay. Alternatively, you can use “Autoplay” to spin for a predetermined number of rounds with no interruptions.
Just like cricket betting has tons of betting opportunities, Cricket Star Scratch offers plenty of in-game action and a wild-wickets feature on reels 2, 3, and 4, and Rolling Reels. Getting three or more scatter symbols will give you a set of free spins. Those free spins are played on the Rolling Reels and all the winning combinations are credited to your account. On the other hand, the Wild Wickets bonus game can be triggered randomly as soon as you start playing.
