Let’s face it – real sports are currently in short supply. Thankfully virtual sports are there to fill the void. This includes the Golden Race ‘Beyond Virtuals’, a series of virtual sports games that will soon be available on the 888casino and 888sport platforms.

Players on both platforms will gain access to virtual betting events – and not just a few either. The over 20 new leagues will include things like 3D Virtual Football, 3D Horse Racing, Motorbike Racing and more.

Golden Race’s CEO, Martin Wachter, spoke about the partnership:

“We are delighted to announce our partnership with such a prestigious brand as 888. We are certain that their clients will greatly enjoy our portfolio of highly realistic virtual sports and engaging number games, especially at this moment when they are looking for new products to satisfy the lack of sports events.”

These new virtual events feature in-house tech, PC-generated games and plenty of RNG elements to make sure things are fair, transparent, and random. The idea is to recreate some of the world’s most popular sports virtually, complete with real odds models, multi-language support, and varying virtual sports betting markets.

As an added bonus, this type of event allows for some pretty unique camera angles that wouldn’t be possible in real events – as an incentive for hesitant sports fans.

The partners

If you aren’t familiar with the 888 line-up – their multi-award winning online casinos are one of the bigger names in online betting. They received the 2019 Casino Operator of the Year Award from EGR awards, and are fairly well-known in the community.

Golden Race, on the other hand, has been dealing in virtual sports games for over 15 years, after winning multiple awards for their virtual sports and betting solutions. They also lead the market in virtual football leagues and pre-recorded video sports. Certified by even the most demanding jurisdictions, their services are already used by and embedded in over 50.000 shops and 400 websites.

888sport and 888casino are now the latest partners to join that line-up – no doubt a very beneficial partnership for both organizations. The SVP of 888’s B2C, Guy Cohen, said: “We are incredibly excited about our working partnership with Golden Race ‘Beyond Virtuals.’ We strive to offer our customers an engaging portfolio of games and this company is at the forefront of virtual sports innovations.”
