You’re going to love online virtual sports betting. Whichever the type of sports game that currently floats your boat, you’re bound to have a smashingly good time. But – when it comes to virtual dog racing, you’re in for an experience unlike any other in the world.
With lean, fierce canine athletes bounding along the tracks at breakneck speed, these races are fast and intense, making betting on the dogs a truly immersive kind of experience. You can play virtual sports and make any number of bets on the races. The best part is that, for each win, you get paid right away. And the races are always on.
So far so good? Follow me to learn about greyhound online racing and see how online virtual sports are the most lucrative way to enjoy good old track traditions in sports betting.
How Online Greyhound Racing Works
Virtual greyhound racing is a 100% simulation. No rabbits are harmed in the making of, etc. The races take place on our VR sports platform using advanced programming and incredible graphics designed to emulate the real McCoy. The races take place every 2 minutes, and everything from the hounds themselves to the outcome of the game is randomly determined by software. No intervention, no disadvantage. Fair and square!
I also have “real” greyhound racing. The dogs in this version are real dogs from real life races, which means the graphics are literally real. This does not, however, mean the outcomes are based on real life events.
So don’t go thinking you can watch a real life race and put all your money on that dog in the virtual world. The race and the outcome is still totally random and virtual, it’s simply the images that are real.
Virtual and Greyhounds Odds and How they Work
If you’ve ever done sports betting before, you’re likely familiar with odds designated with a plus (+) and (-) sign. Greyhound online racing is different, and it’s done with decimal odds.
So let’s say the odds for the dog Pendragon to win are 10.5. That means if you stake $100 and Pendragon wins the race, you profit $950, and walk away with $1,050 total ($950 plus your original $100 bet).
As a rule, the more likely the bet is to win, the lower the odds will be. You get paid at the highest odds for bets that are harder to win. I’ll detail those bets in just a minute.
Virtual Greyhounds Tips
Since Joe Fortune Casino virtual sports is human-free, random and as fair as my rear end, there’s no way to predict what any given outcome might be. It’s similar to playing pokies: it may feel like a trend is emerging, but each and every spin is independent from the one before it. With VR greyhound racing, each possible outcome has an equal chance eventuating.
So the best way to take on virtual greyhound racing is the same way you approach the pokies. Set aside a special bankroll just for greyhound racing, and only wager the amount you can justify as a loss and still stay in the game. If you want to stay in the game for even longer, make smaller-stakes bets. If you hit your stride and want to try your chances for bigger wins at a higher risk, then go for bigger bets. If it’s just not looking like your day, take a breather! There’ll be another dog day afternoon tomorrow.
Bets in Greyhound Racing
So which bets are available for greyhound online racing? Some are pretty easy with modest, steady profits, and others are tough to win, but oh Nelly do they pay.
This bet is on which dog will come in first place. The odds tend to be on the higher end because only one outcome can result in a profit.
This one’s a bit easier. A place bet means your dog can finish in either 1st or 2nd place, and it doesn’t matter which.
Now your dog can finish in either 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place. If only real life was so inclusive. As you could imagine, a Show bet has the lowest payout, however, it’s one of the safest bets to make and it will keep you in the game for longer.
An Exacta bet is precise. It means you’re wagering on the dogs to win in places 1 and 2. Your predictions must be exactly correct in order for you to win your bet. A bit risky, but a big reward.
The same as above, but now you’re betting on three dogs to finish in the exact order for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. If even one dog isn’t as you guessed, you don’t win it. Trifecta bets have insane odds in the thousands! If you score a Trifecta payout, drinks are on you.
For this type of bet you have to correctly predict that your dog will finish in either the first half of placers, or the last. Since this is the easiest bet to get, the odds tend to be low, around 3 or less.
Will the finishing dog be an odd or an even number? Don’t expect life-changing payouts here, but do enjoy regular, steady wins.
