How to play Virtual Horseracing
When you enter the Virtual Racing Lobby, you'll be presented with the option to bet on both horses and dogs. You can choose to bet on 'instant races' that run immediately, or on 'scheduled races' that run at a specific time. You'll find the instant races in the upper half of the lobby, and the scheduled races on the bottom.
To join an instant race, just click the horse button at the top of the Lobby. The next screen will provide you with information on the runners, including their track numbers and odds.
For added details, you can click on the name of the horse to see a 'mug shot', their age and sex, their last five places, and a brief description.
There are two different betting formats:
U.K. style displays the odds in fractions e.g., 5/1
International style displays the odds in decimals e.g., 6.00
There are also three different types of bets:
Win/Place: You can place both Win and Place bets in the Win/Place betting screen:
- Win Bet: By making a Win bet, you're predicting the runner will come first and win the race.
- Place Bet: By making a Place bet, you're predicting that a runner will either come first or second in the race.
Exacta/Forecast: In an Exacta (INT.) or Forecast (U.K.) bet, you're betting on picking the first and second runners in the correct order.
You can also place a Quinella (or Reverse Forecast) bet that predicts the two runners that will finish first and second, regardless of order. You cannot place an Exacta/Forecast bet on a horse you have already placed a Quinella bet on.You may only place your bets on a maximum of two horses for Quinella bets.
- TriCast/Trifecta: In a Trifecta (or Tricast) bet, you're betting on the first three horses to finish the race in the correct order.
- You can place any number of Exacta/Forecast or TriCast/Trifecta bets, as long as they add up to no more than $500 in total.
- The three bet types are displayed under different tabs within the same screen, which you choose in order to place your bets.
To bet on Win/Place, you can either enter the amount you wish to bet in the text field against your preferred bet type, or click the +/- buttons to change the bet value. Once you've entered the amount of your bet, you can click on 'MAX POTENTIAL RETURN' button to know the maximum potential return for your bet. Then click the 'confirm bet' button to update the betting summary. You can place multiple bets simultaneously and click CONFIRM BET to update Betting Summary at a time. In this case, MAX POTENTIAL RETURN window will show the maximum return for the highest possible bet.
To bet on Exacta (Forecast)/ Trifecta (Tricast), you need to select your horses and enter the bet amount in the text fileld 'Bet Amount'. You need to confirm one bet at a time unlike Win/Place.
Once your bets are confirmed, you will be able to click 'Start Race' to begin the race.
The betting summary displays information on all the bets you have placed for a race. This includes the bet type, selection, stake, and potential returns.
