Virgin Casino Launches Two Virtual Racing Games
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM — (Marketwire) — 06/24/10 — Virgin Casino, part of the leading online gaming company – Virgin Games, has today announced the launch of two new games from Ash Gaming – Virtual Horses and Virtual Dogs. Both games are fixed odds and allow players the thrill of a fun sporting event whenever they choose.
Virtual Horses is a fixed-odds game based on horse racing. The game allows players to bet on an eight-horse race and then watch the race with high quality animations and commentary. There are 72 different bets available for each race, including a win bet (betting on the outright winner of the race) a place bet (betting on a horse to finish in the first three past the winning post) and forecast bets (where you predict the first two finishers of a race in the correct order).
Virtual Dogs is also a fixed-odds game, but based on greyhound racing. Players bet on either a 6-dog race or an 8-dog race and watch the race with high quality animations. There are 42 different bets available on the six-dog race and 72 for the eight-dog race.
Warren Eloff, Product Manager at Virgin Games, commented:
“Our customers can experience the thrill of a day at the races or the buzz of a night at the dogs, all within the comfort of their own home. These two games bring our customers something a bit different, they will be very appealing to sporting fans that enjoy a flutter – and while the games may be virtual, the money to be won certainly isn’t!”
Founded in 2004, Virgin Games has over 1,000,000 players and nearly 200 games on its site. Through the introduction of a custom built Virgin Games platform in 2008, Virgin Games seeks to provide its players with the widest possible choice of casino games.
