What is Virtual Greyhound Racing?
Greyhound racing is just as popular as horse racing in the virtual format and you can enjoy a wide range of races throughout the day and also bet on the outcome.
There are three racetracks to choose from and there will be a race streamed every three minutes. The start times for the races are staggered, so there will be at least one race every minute.
How Does Virtual Greyhound Racing Work?
Each race will have six dogs running and you can bet on the winner outright, each way winner plus a Forecast and Tricast bet.
The fictional racetracks are all based on a certain race. The three tracks are as follows:
Bennett Park – This racetrack is based on 1-minute Bullet Racing and is extremely popular because of the quickness of each race.
Goldenhill Park – This track has small hurdles for the dogs to clear. It is safe for the dogs and adds more excitement to the race.
Hillside Park – This is your regular flat racing tack that you would bet on if you actually went to the dog track.
