6/25/10 – Virgin Games continues to benefit from its highly flexible software platform, which enables it to offer a wide selection from diverse game providers. This week the online casino announced the launch of another two additions from Ash Gaming – Virtual Horses and Virtual Dogs.
Both new games are fixed odds: Virtual Horses is a game based on horse racing that allows players to bet on an eight-horse race and then watch the race with high quality animations and commentary. There are 72 different bets available for each race, including a win bet (betting on the outright winner of the race) a place bet (betting on a horse to finish in the first three past the winning post) and forecast bets (where you predict the first two finishers of a race in the correct order).
Virtual Dogs is based on greyhound racing. Players bet on either a 6-dog race or an 8-dog race and watch the race through high quality animations. There are 42 different bets available on the six-dog race and 72 for the eight-dog race.
Warren Eloff, product manager at Virgin Games, said this week: "Our customers can experience the thrill of a day at the races or the buzz of a night at the dogs, all within the comfort of their own home. These two games bring our customers something a bit different, they will be very appealing to sporting fans that enjoy a flutter – and while the games may be virtual, the money to be won certainly isn't!"
