Virtual sports are computer-generated games of certain sporting games. A Virtual football game is a game simulator for a real football game. It is run by a special software that is built on a number generator and which processes the game by itself. It is basically like the video games FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer only that there is/are no real-life persons controlling the team/s.

It’s easy to criticize Virtual Football because of its limitations. But then Virtual Football also has its own set of benefits which make it more appealing than its real-world counterpart. In this article, we will be taking a look at the advantages and the disadvantages of Virtual Football and how it affects betting.

By taking a look at the advantages and disadvantages of Virtual Football, you will have a better appreciation not just of Virtual Football but also of real-life Football games. This will help you decide which type of game if more suited to you or if you want to join millions of punters who enjoy the best of what both types of games have to offer. Read on.

Advantages of Virtual Football Betting

The main advantage of Virtual Football Betting is that games are continuous and all-year-round. This means that bets are accepted non-stop and bettors can place their bets at any time. With virtual games being played 365 days a year, there’s a very wide variety of matches to choose from.

The next advantage of Virtual Football Betting is that matches here last just from 2-3 minutes instead of the usual 90+ minutes that a real football game takes to complete. Because of this, bettors don’t have to wait too long to determine the outcome of their bets, therefore a large range of bets can be created in a very short time. If you’re a punter who likes to make several small value bets in a short period, then Virtual Football betting is for you.

Another advantage of Virtual Football Betting is that a beginner can make a bet right away. One no longer needs experience and skill to analyze games because Virtual Football matches are run by a computer and the result is as random as it can get. In real-life football, even the best-analyzed bet can lose, which can be deflating. That doesn’t happen in Virtual Football.

Unlike real football where there is a possibility of match-fixing, Virtual Football Games are programmed and there is no cheating here nor are there going to be questionable calls by the referees. Also, external factors that affect real-life games like injuries, bad weather, suspensions, and the likes don’t affect the outcome of Virtual Football matches.

Disadvantages of Virtual Football

While the external factors mentioned above do not affect the results of Virtual Football games, the bettor no longer has to analyze particular games because the computer decides who the winner of the match will be. In short, the use of knowledge and skill to analyze bets aren’t applicable here because Virtual Football betting is as random as a lottery

While round the clock games in Virtual Football betting can lead to bigger profits, they can also lead to huge losses because the bettor will be invited to place a wager in so many games during a short period. However, this can be resolved if only the bettor has a betting strategy that includes discipline.

The biggest drawback:

Is that there are limited betting markets for this kind of game. That’s because there are no special bets in Virtual Sports. For example, favorite bets like top goal scorer, first or last goalscorer, are currently unavailable in Virtual Sports betting sites.

Finally, Virtual Football games do not have the excitement that real-life games bring to the fans. Without that excitement, there is no adrenaline rush that endears fans to a particular player or team. There is no entertainment value in Virtual Football and as we said above, it’s just like a lottery.

Strategies in Virtual Football Games

Now that you know the pros and cons of Virtual Football Games, let us give you some pointers when playing Virtual Football games:

  • Virtual football bets follow the over 1.5 goals strategy which means that a punter can win the bet if a team scores over two goals.
  • To keep on winning, bettors need to seek the expert advice of tipsters to know about the team that are performing low key or very well in the league or world cup matches.
  • The “First Half Win” is also a strategy where bettors look forward to which team is going to win in the first half of the game.
  • Bettors can also wager using the “Weak Team Strategy” where a particular team has lost seven games during the season.
  • The 1.5 goals option appears to work for most of its bettors. Here, one starts betting with a small amount and when the profit reaches 25%, the amount of bet is increased.

In Conclusion

We hope that with this article, you now have an idea of what Virtual Football Betting is and you also know now what it takes to be successful here. We’ve shown you the advantages and disadvantages of Virtual Football betting and some strategies that can be used to be successful. So what are you waiting for?
