One of the biggest expos of the year is almost upon us with a number of key movers in the sports betting, esports, and virtual sports betting industry set to unveil a host of new games and features at the ICE London 2020 event at the ExCel.

In particular, two announcements have caught the attention in particular for Virtual Sports betting fans.

Golden Race Showcases New Instant Virtual Sports Offering

Virtual Sports fans rocking up to Golden Race stand at ICE London 2020 will be delighted to see that the company is set to reveal its brand new set of Instant Virtual Sports betting games at the event.

Perhaps the most eagerly awaited of the new titles is Real Fighting, which uses high-quality video footage from real MMA fights and features 16 different professional fighters to create a number of exciting matchups.

Each fighter has their own catchy nickname and signature moves to make the game more realistic and each contest is fought over a possible five rounds and will feature a number of popular betting markets.
In addition to Real Fighting, Golden Race will be showcasing a number of other new Virtual Sports offerings including 3×3 Basketball, 3D Horse Racing, Speedway, Motorbike Racing, Dog Racing and in what we believe is a first for Virtual Sports, Virtual Keno.

Furthermore, CEO of Golden Race Martin Wachter has also revealed that the company intends to showcase a brand new version of Virtual Football for the first time, which Wachter claims has seen the game take “a qualitative visual leap forward to become the most authentic 3D football simulation.”

Golden Race will exhibit their new Virtual Sports offerings at stand S2-322 at ICE London.

Playtech Reveals New Omni-Channel Betting Platform – QUANTUMPlayTech Virtual Sports platform

In other news from the big event in London, one of the biggest names in virtual sports betting, Playtech,BGT Sports has announced that they are set to release what they are labelling their ‘first truly omni-channel betting platform’.
Their new platform is called QUANTUM and it will be revealed to the public for the first time at the event in London shortly.

QUANTUM came into being after Playtech sought to merge all of their different sports betting services into a single, easily-accessible platform. The new platform will combine all the different forms of betting services that the company offers, such as standard sports betting, as well as esports betting, In Play betting and Virtual Sports betting, into a simple easily accessible tool.

This will allow operators to access the full range of Playtech services from a single entry point, making it easier to maintain and operate, while also allowing customers a chance to explore the different services all from a single log in.

Speaking about the launch of QUANTUM, CEO of Playtech BGT Sports, Dr. Armin Sageder MBA, stated:

“At PBS we strive hard to ensure each of our operator partners have the industry’s most advanced tools available to boost incremental revenue and player engagement.”
“The result of over two years of development, we are absolutely thrilled to be showcasing sports betting’s first truly omni-channel betting platform designed to take our operator’s performance to another level.”

ICE London 2020 gets underway on the 4th of February and runs through until 6th February 2020.
