Which UK Bookmakers Now Offer Virtual Sports To Its Customers

Posted on November 15, 2017

We have already ascertained that Virtual Sports is very much a growing industry and the rate of that growth over the past few years has been exceptional. Along with esports betting and In Play betting, it is one of the fastest growing forms of betting in the UK betting industry at present and it is being enjoyed by an ever-increasing number of punters and casino gaming enthusiasts.

So, with that in mind what is the state of the Virtual Sports betting industry within the UK today? Which sports betting sites now offer Virtual Sports and what sports do they offer? We decided to take a look starting with our two recommended sites, as well as listing other sites that also offer Virtual Sports betting to UK customers at present.

  1. Betway

Virtual Sports Offered: Football, Horse Racing, Cycling, Greyhounds, Motor Racing, Speedway, Trotting

Virtual Sports Promotions: Yes (occasionally)

Available on Mobile – Yes

With its cutting edge technology and superb presentation for each of its Virtual Sports, Betway remains the main player when it comes to Virtual Sports betting in the UK. Not only does the site offer a wide range of Virtual Sports to play, but it also offers occasional promotions and you can access all their Virtual Sports offering on any device.

  1. 10Bet

Virtual Sports Offered: Football, Horse Racing, Greyhounds

Virtual Sports Promotions: Yes

Available on Mobile – Yes

10Bet offers a smaller selection of Virtual Sports but they are presented very nicely. However, the site also has a promotion running through until the 31st December offering customers the chance to earn their stake back up to £10 as a Free Bet for Virtual Sports if their first bet doesn’t win.

  1. Bet365 Sport

Virtual Sports Offered: Football, Horse Racing, Greyhounds, Motor Racing, Speedway, Cycling, Tennis, Trotting

Virtual Sports Promotions: No

Available on Mobile – Yes

Bet365 offers a wide range of Virtual Sports including Virtual Tennis which is not available on many of the top sites. However, the site, as yet, does not offer any specific promotional items for Virtual Sports.

  1. SkyBet

Virtual Sports Offered: Football, Horse Racing, Greyhounds, Motor Racing, Speedway

Virtual Sports Promotions: No

Available on Mobile – Yes

SkyBet has a smaller range of Virtual Sports than some of the top providers and they are yet to run any significant promotions to help promote their range of games to customers.

  1. Coral

Virtual Sports Offered: Football, Horse Racing, Greyhounds, Tennis, Motorsports, Speedway, Cycling

Virtual Sports Promotions: Yes

Available on Mobile – Yes

Coral’s Virtual Sports betting service has improved a great deal in recent times and the company not only offers the sports on mobile but also a good value free bet offer for customers placing their first bet on Virtual Sports which could be worth as much as £20.

  1. Bet Bright

Virtual Sports Offered: Football, Horse Racing, Greyhounds, Tennis, Speedway, Trotting

Virtual Sports Promotions: Have done previously

Available on Mobile – Yes

Bet Bright are a new name in the Virtual Sports betting industry but they offer a decent range of sports to bet on and they did run a promotion a while back offering a free bet, although this has now expired and has yet to be replaced by a new offer.

  1. Betfair

Virtual Sports Offered: Horse Racing Jumps, Horse Racing Flat, Football, Greyhounds, Motor Racing, Speedway, Cycling

Virtual Sports Promotions: No

Available on Mobile – Yes

Betfair are one of the few bookmakers that split their Virtual Sports offering for horse racing into Flat racing and Jumps racing which is a nice option and a rare one. However the site doesn’t offer any promotions on Virtual Sports at present.

  1. Bet Victor

Virtual Sports Offered: Football, Horse Racing, Greyhounds, Motorsports, Speedway, Cycling

Virtual Sports Promotions: Have offered previously

Available on Mobile – Yes

Bet Victor offer a decent selection of sports and they are available online and also on mobile. The site has also run some decent promotions for Virtual Sports in the past, but currently there are none active on the site.

  1. Boylesports

Virtual Sports Offered: Horse Racing National Hunt, Horse Racing Flat, Football, Greyhounds, Motor Racing, Speedway, Cycling

Virtual Sports Promotions: No

Available on Mobile – Yes

Boylesports offering on Virtual Sports is very similar to Betfairs in that it offers both flat racing and National Hunt racing as separate options for Virtual Horse Racing. The site also doesn’t seem to offer any specific Virtual Sports promotions to customers at the present time.

  1. Ladbrokes

Virtual Sports Offered: Horse Racing, Football, Greyhounds, Motor Racing, Speedway, Cycling

Virtual Sports Promotions: Yes

Available on Mobile – Yes

Ladbrokes offer a total of six different Virtual Sports, but the company also has a good backing online and also offers users the chance to earn a free £5 bet each weekend if they bet £20 in total on Virtual Horseracing. This is also a weekly offer, which means it can be used more than once by customers offering excellent long-term value.

  1. William Hill

Virtual Sports Offered: Horse Racing, Football, Greyhounds, Motor Racing, Speedway, Cycling

Virtual Sports Promotions: No

Available on Mobile – Yes

William Hill are one of the most recognisable names in the British betting industry and they now offer a choice of six Virtual Sports in their Virtual World section of the sports betting website. They have no current Virtual Sports promotions running at present and the site does allow betting from mobile on virtual events.

  1. Paddy Power

Virtual Sports Offered: Horse Racing, Football, Greyhounds, Tennis, Speedway, Cycling

Virtual Sports Promotions: No

Available on Mobile – Yes

Paddy Power offer a choice of six different Virtual Sports, which are all accessible online and also from mobile. The site does not currently have a promotion ongoing for Virtual Sports, but given the number of offers and promotions this company utilises over the course of a year, that will likely change at some point in the future.

As you can see, Virtual Sports has now been widely adopted across the top bookmakers in the UK and although what they offer does vary from site to site and promotional offers may be a little thin on the ground with many bookmakers, there is no doubt that an increasing number of users are enjoying this form of betting.
