Virtual Horse Racing
Virtual Horse Racing allows you to visit top racehorse tracks from the comfort of your own home. That said, as the game is also available for mobile phones and tablets, you can play it when you're out and about.
Rather than offering you the chance to bet on real races like you can at sports betting sites, Virtual Horse Racing employs a random number generator (RNG) to determine an unbiased, random outcome with weighting applied in proportion to the advertised odds.
When you first load Virtual Horse Racing, you'll see a schedule of all the upcoming races at locations like Trowbridge and Penrith Park, as well as a video feed showing the latest race if one is currently taking place.
When you select an event, you'll see a countdown timer which indicates how long you have left before all bets are closed. Underneath, there are the names of the horses (along with their numbers, riders, and colours), and on the right-hand side, are the forecast and tricast betting options (including Win, Place, and E/W).
All you need to decide is which race or races you wish to place a wager on by clicking on each event, then selecting Win, Place or E/W, or multiple options. These choices are automatically added to the Bet Slip to the right of the screen, which shows you your total stake and estimated returns. If you're happy with these figures, simply click ‘Submit Bet'. If you want to remove any bets, you can either individually click the ‘X' next to each one or use the ‘Clear Bets' button to remove all wagers on the slip.
For maximum excitement and more chances to win, Virtual Horse Racing allows you to wager on multiple events. If you choose to back horses in more than one race, you can view all of your current wagers by selecting the ‘Multi' tab on your Bet Slip.
You can also view the winners of previous races by selecting the ‘Latest Results' option below the video screen, and check back to see if you've secured any winnings by clicking the ‘Last Bets' button.
Races are run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with a new race commencing every 3 to 30 minutes.
