With their not being any real soccer games to bet on since the shutdown, most users have moved to bet on Virtual betting games. These are offered by almost every betting site in Nigeria. However, more recently, a new betting product has been launched called Simulated reality league betting, or SRL. It has been launched by a company called Betradar, which if you don’t know, actually provides the live sport feeds for thousands of betting sites. This means that they have the data from all of these soccer matches that have been played in the past (50 000+) as well all upcoming soccer fixtures with the team players who were meant to be playing.
What they have done, is to use all of this historical data and to then plug it into their AI system. It then makes predictions on exactly how the entire game, the full 90minutes, will play out.
This is an amazing way to still bet on the games you would have bet on, even though the real teams are in lockdown.
The simulated reality soccer games take place at the same time that the real games would have been played, and like we said, they play for the full 90 minutes. You “watch” the game on the betting site by watching the ball movements on the pitch, along with details such as which player has the ball etc. It is not like the real thing..but is the best option we have at the moment.
There are both pre-match and in-play markets with over 50 markets available at the moment.
