Virtual Trotting

Just like real Trotting, you can place bets on Virtual Trotting at BSportNation. I’ll be honest – I once went to a Trotting meeting in Spain, and I struggled with the concept of betting on a race where you’re not meant to go fast. Any horse that breaks into a gallop in a Trotting race has to be pulled to the side and slowed down until the others catch up. Its kind of like competitive race walking for humans. But with less ridiculous bum wiggling.

However, 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 horses colours and number, and unlike most other offerings you can instantly see the previous form of the horse, the name of the jockey and the odds for the horse.

Even better, there is an “info” button next to each horse. Pressing this opens up a lovely little window which has more details on the horse. These include the trainer name, age of the horse, 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. You can bet on Win, Place, Forecast or Tricast straight from the main screen just by clicking on the icon, selecting your horse or horses, entering your stake and submitting it. It couldn’t be easier. 

The only thing that I found unusual was that there didn’t seem to be the option to do reverse Forecasts or Tricasts 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

If you are only betting on one horse and rider then you can select either a Win bet, a Place bet or an Each Way bet. Just click the corresponding button under the correct heading and it will populate the betslip for you.

Selecting a second horse and rider will also give you a second Win, Place or Each Way bet. If you want to place a Forecast of even a Tricast, then just click the tab below the main action screen and you can then pick your two (or three) horses from there. SportNation will also let you mix and match your bets across all of the virtual sports it offers (except football). This allows you to build some complex bets across different Virtual Sports.

And if you think that the betting part is really good, just wait until you see the Race Action. Its amazing. The graphics, are stunning, with little details like the furrows in the course, the shadows and even the dust clouds being kicked up all making this the most realistic experience I’ve had with a Virtual Horse Race of any type.

At the bottom of the screen is a ticker that shows where each horse is in the race, and also how far it is to the finish line.

Bottom line is that SportNation is easily one of the the best places to bet on Virtual Sports. The bet navigation is clear and easy to navigate and use, and the graphics are exceptional. There’s plenty of fun to be had at SportNation. Give it a go.
