Ever since the legalization of sports betting in the U.S., the NBA has been making efforts to modernize themselves. Therefore, they have been looking for ways to improve the game for basketball bettor and fans thru various methods. According to a press release, the latest one is by launching an NBA Virtual Sports Betting Game.
Virtual sport betting is nothing new in most of Europe and the rest of the world. It is basically a digital sporting game that uses an algorithm to generate at random a winner for each event. What makes their game different from other virtual sports betting games is that they will use NBA highlights and footages.
Yesterday, ESPN said that their NBA Virtual Sports Betting Game will be ready to launch next season. The game in question is “NBA Last 90” and is made in partnership with Highlight Games Ltd. Furthermore, fans and bettors will have several different betting options for each matchup. Thus, they will be able to bet on who will win, first to score and on the totals.
Profiting from Launching the NBA Virtual Sports Betting Game
The sports betting software for the NBA Virtual Sports Betting Game will enable greater profits for sportsbooks. This is because unlike betting on an actual NBA game, “NBA Last 90” can be on a repetitive loop. This means that an NBA bettor can bet on the game every 10 to 15 minutes. Thus, unlike a real NBA game, they do not have to wait until the next match to unfold.
According to gambling reports, Virtual Sports Betting is becoming very popular amongst bettors. This is because it enables bettors to bet on a sporting event virtually any time they want. In addition, the virtual sports games available are without limits. The most popular virtual game is horse racing but there are other games available like soccer, car racing and more.
For Highlight Games, this is a great opportunity for them to finally enter the U.S. sports betting market. On the other hand, this will make the NBA the first U.S. sports league to enter the virtual sports betting market.
