Lets have a look at the Virtual Sports that you can place bets on at SportNation.
Virtual Sports Available
Just like real Speedway, you can place bets on Virtual Speedway at SportNation.
Out of all the Virtual Racing platforms that I have experienced, the one at SportNation is the best. Everything is clearly laid out, with nice large icons showing the racers colours and number, and unlike most other offerings you can instantly see the previous form of the rider and the odds for them to win.
Even better, there is an “info” button next to each racer. Pressing this opens up a lovely little window which has more details on each racer. These include the racers age, a summary of its last twenty runs and even a beautifully rendered image. its a really nice details and makes the betting aspect even more realistic.
Placing a Bet
This is the easiest interface I’ve ever used. As Virtual Speedway races only ever have four racers, the betting options are understandably reduced.
Just under the main Action screen are the odds for the four racers. If you wish to place a Single Win or an Place bet all you have to do is click the odds that you want. This will populate the betslip. If you want to bet on a Forecast, simply click that tab and follow the same process by choosing your two riders.
The only thing that I found unusual was that there didn’t seem to be the option to do reverse Forecasts but bearing in mind that most other brands only allow you to bet on the Winner, SportNation already has way more options available to you.
Types of Bet
So, as we’ve read the range of betting options are more limited purely due to the reduced number of riders in each race. The odds are initially offered as decimals, but for old-skoolers like me, you can change them to fractional by clicking up the top of the page.
Betting on a single race allows you to bet on the following – Win, Place and Forecast.
Betting on multiple races will Will allow you to place more complex bets, including Tricasts, Lucky 15s and many more. You can also build bets across different sports (except football), so if you wanted to you could place a Lucky 15 across Virtual Cycling, Speedway, Horse Racing, Trotting and Greyhound Racing.
And if you think that the betting part is really good, just wait until you see the Race Action. Its amazing. The graphics, with multiple camera angles, lighting effects and even dust clouds are stunning, and these little details coupled with the engine and crowd sounds and even a very enthusiastic commentator all adding to the experience.
At the bottom of the screen is a ticker that shows where each rider is in the race, and also how far it is to the finish line.
Bottom Line is that SportNation is easily one of the best places to bet on Virtual Speedway. The navigation is clear and easy to use and the graphics are exceptional and immersive. The use of commentary and the tiny touches in the graphics really help to make the sport feel as real as it could be. You should give SportNation a go.
