How a virtual horse race works

What to expect from your virtual race

Virtual horse racing has become an incredibly popular pastime for players, either online or in betting shops across the country. Whether you use it as a way to bridge the gap between real life races, or the virtual form is your primary method of play, there is plenty of enjoyment to be had at the well known virtual tracks such as Portman Park or Steepledowns.

But how is it decided which horse will win in the virtual world? The best explanation is to think of the process as similar to a list of numbers. If horse number one has short odds, that means its number appears a high number of times on the list. Horses with longer odds may appear just one or two times on the list, naturally making it less likely that their number will be drawn and they will win.

This makes virtual horse racing ideal for the casual player. Making a success of betting on real life racing requires you to study the form and be aware of the pros and cons of each individual horse and jockey. If you just want to bet for a bit of a fun in the evening, virtual racing could be the way to go.
