Friday July 19,2013 : BETRADAR RELEASES VIRTUAL HORSE RACING GAME
 
First operators are as far flung as Nigeria and Georgia
 
The sports data provider Betrader has launched a virtual horse racing product branded Virtual Horse Classics (VHC), delivering the first examples to operators as disparate as Nigerian online bookmaker NairaBet.com, and the Georgian online bookie Europe-bet.com as well as Tempobet.com.
 
The launch of the horse racing product follows the success of Betradar's Virtual Football League, which has garnered 40 international operators.
 
The hosted front-end and fully customisable VHC solution provides round-the-clock real-money betting on virtual horse races. Each race simulation found in VHC feeds from the latest developments in artificial intelligence, all developed in-house by a team of virtual sports experts.
 
The fast-paced betting approach always offers two race days in parallel with nine races per day and a total duration of 45 minutes.
 
Every three minutes on average, a new race starts, delivering a wide range of fixed odds on the outcome of each race. With a unique race brochure, VHC gives the users access to valuable insight information about the past performances of the virtual jockeys and horses.
 
Statistics and odds are offered through the bookmaker’s existing web interface, happens with real horseracing events. The use of Betradar´s existing infrastructure such as the Virtual Odds Feed is a key feature that makes VHC popular.
 
The new product is not only available as an online attraction; its effective simulation and audio visual technology has also been optimised for retail operations and is suitable for display in betting shops on terminals or as a flat screen HD presentation.
 
“We all know that virtual sportsbetting has become an integral part of modern bookmaking. With Virtual Horse Classics, we extend our virtual sportsbetting portfolio with an entertaining and revenue-driving solution for all bookmaking operators,” says Erik Lorenz, md  sales at Sportradar.
