Virtual Horse Racing has long been a staple of many a high street betting shop. Computerised jollies go up against each other on digital racecourses - the most famous of which include Portman Park, Sprintvalley, and Steepledowns.

It has since become an evergreen fixture online, but despite its success, Portman Park, Sprintvalley, and Steepledowns cards are tough to find online. Nay (pardon the pun) - it is impossible!

This seems odd to us - so we set about investigating. The results of our investigation were inconclusive to put it kindly! The truth is, it isn’t clear why the three most famous virtual racecourses are unavailable for betting online currently. It seems likely to be a contractual issue.

However what we can confirm is that every single bookmaker featured on the betvirtual.co site does offer Virtual Horse Racing online - the race tracks are just under different names. Unibet, William Hill, Ladbrokes, and Coral all play host to different virtual circuits - each with a unique title.

It's the same deal as the shops - you pick your virtual horse and cheer it home. You can place accumulators and multiples - including Lucky 15s and Yankees - and even do forecasts and tricasts if you think your luck is in.

There are several benefits to betting on virtual online, rather than in-shop. For starters, new players can claim welcome bonuses and specific virtual offers that are not available on the high street. Virtual Sports free bets give you an opportunity to engage with more virtual opportunities - without using more of your own money.

Always read the terms and conditions for the Welcome Offers with your chosen company.

There is also a more extensive range of virtual sports on which you can bet online. You can choose from the likes of greyhounds, football, tennis, darts, and Formula 1. You even have the opportunity for ‘On-demand’ events - meaning you decide to bet whenever you are ready.

The wonders of modern technology mean it is more accessible and simpler to follow your virtual bets. Be it on your mobile via the website or an app, or on your desktop - Virtual Horse Racing is optimised for every device.

Playing on an app is particularly useful for those wanting quick access to the next virtual event. Betting apps are stylised to suit their user - meaning you have the option of prioritising your betting and gaming markets.

The most important thing is to always bet responsibly and never bet what you can’t afford to lose.
