Virtual sports have been around for years, but a decade ago the graphics were more like the original Nintendo than the cutting-edge look and realistic nature of today's product.
There are Virtuals for the majority of your favourite sports and so you'll be familiar with the betting markets on offer.
Hollywoodbets currently has eight Virtuals available to play on site:
Just like the real thing, this game comes with a racecard containing the horse's rating and form so that you can make an informed decision on which runners to punt on.
Choose either a win or place bet. Or, if you're feeling really lucky, you can even form a combination bet and go for a bigger win.
They're up and over! Or are they? Same as above but over fences and with the added possibility of your horse falling. Unlike in real life though, no horses will be injured in this virtual experience.
Betting on a horse race through the medium of a roulette table… well, a third of a standard roulette table.
There are no names or form to consider. This is a game of luck.
Bet on a number, or numbers, to win the race. Alternative markets include betting on whether the winner will be an even or odd number, red or black in colour or whether it will come from the low or high end of the table.
Football but without having to wait 90 minutes for the result! Markets are limited to five or six of the usual suspects including Match Result, Double Chance, Over/Under Goals etc.
You'll be treated to the key highlights from the match, lasting around 90 seconds. Once the game has finished, there will be a synopsis of the relevant stats from the game.
One singles game of a ‘First to 7 points’ style format in which a player must win by two clear points. If the match gets to 8-8, then the scorer of the ninth point will win.
Choose between Match Result, Correct Score, Total Points among other markets.
Nascar style motor racing with horse racing-style betting. Pick a driver to win or place with the added benefit of being able to see form and rating.
Exactly like the real thing. Pick a dog to win, place or be a part of a combination bet consisting of correct order finishes or any order finishes with multiple Greyhounds.
The lottery style game. Pick one, or up to ten numbers with Keno.
