Sports social networking sites and virtual sports betting are on the rise.
We have all heard of social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace and even Twitter. These sites are generally for keeping in touch with people we know and often meeting and making new friends. Nowadays, social networking is becoming more specific, particularly for sports fans, as more and more sport social networking sites are being created for sport lovers to keep up to date with everything that’s going on in their chosen field.
Sports Social Networking
Some sports social networking sites are specifically for football for example, others allow you to access information about all types of sport and sporting events.
These sites allow sports fans to interact with each other, to find out the latest sporting news and events and of course, the outcomes of a variety of matches and races. Members of these sites can share photos and videos, join groups of like-minded people via the site and even submit blogs!
Virtual Sports Betting
However, the next big thing coming the way of sport enthusiasts and the one that will be included in many of the sporting social network sites, is virtual sports betting. Virtual sports betting is being introduced on many of the Sport social networks including BGO Sports. They have recently introduced the ability to bet on virtual cycle races and tennis matches. Have a look at the variety of virtual betting races and games and compare on BGO to see which suits you best.
Virtual betting works by having computer generated cycle races or tennis matches in BGO’s example. The results are decided from a draw of random numbers, which are created by a random number generator that has been verified and certified by an external testing house.
Placing A Bet
To place a bet, as with most online betting sites, a member will need to set up an account with the site; in this instance it would be with BGO. You will be given an online betting slip, which keeps track of the races a player wishes to bet on. When the player places a bet, the money will be taken from the account details given. Select your stake and then receive the odds for that bet. A player has until the last couple of minutes of any race to place a bet and any winnings will be paid out at the end of the race.
Any race a player has placed a bet on will have the race information on screen with an alert next to the ones with a bet against them.
This helps to keep track of what is playing and when. There is a ‘My results’ section, which enables players to check at any time races and results of races that they have bet on.
Virtual sports’ betting is a fun way to have a flutter online and is now even available as an app downloaded onto your mobile device.
