Virtual Horse Racing Betting Guide
Virtual horse racing is computer-generated racing that punters can bet on like they would on real action. These races vary in size and take place frequently throughout the day.
Unlike real horse races, virtual racing is not affected by the weather, non-runners, or other factors which can have an impact on the make-up of a contest.
One of the most famous virtual races run each year is the virtual Grand National. You can bet on this virtual 40 runner contest where the bigger fences at Aintree are simulated on screen.

Like any real horse racing card, the previous form of the selections is available for you to study before the race begins.

Virtual Racing is a gamified representation of a computerised number draw.

Each number can only be drawn once so you will never see the same selection as first and second for example.
