Virtual basketball has never been more popular and here BettingPro.com takes a look at how you can bet on the action and watch live streams of virtual basketball matches.
How Does Virtual Basketball Work?
The Virtual Basketball League consists of 16 teams competing in a full season, with each season having 30 match days.
The match day lasts 3.30 minutes and is separated into a Pre-Match period, 1st quarter, 2nd quarter, half-time, 3rd quarter, 4th quarter, overtime – if the game ends in a draw – and a Post-Match period.
The Pre-Match lasts around 30 seconds and runs prior to the game starting, which then lasts two and a half minutes. Half-time lasts 10 seconds and every game is followed by a 20 second Post-Match period
All the virtual basketball matches are streamed through an integrated media player in your browser, you have the option of switching between all eight games. The players are fictitious, while the teams keep their geographical location but without any names. For example, Oklahoma City Thunder just becomes Oklahoma.
