Virtual Sports Betting Games Coming to Playtech Casinos
February 16, 2015
In the online gambling world, there are lots of different types of betting. Playtech is known for being a popular casino game software provider, but they've also got other forms of betting available including one of the most popular online poker networks iPoker. Because of this, they're often looking for ways to mix things up between their different products as they investigate and innovate new technology. One new idea that they've produced could have some major implications on the selection of casino games that they have available in the near future.
The idea that we're talking about here are virtual sports betting games. These games play out in front of you based on simulations just like casino games do, and they're more like casino games than anything else. However, they offer you to take on some of the strategy and skills involved with sports betting which makes them a perfect alternative for players who prefer strategic titles like blackjack, video poker and casino poker. This is a pretty interesting development for a lot of reasons, but the fact that it could lead to an influx of new titles is a pretty big deal on its own.
This is a pretty big deal for Playtech in the casino space specifically because they've been challenged in a major way over the past couple of years for not coming out with as many new titles as the competition. They've also not responded to companies like BetSoft and Net Entertainment who have caused a paradigm shift in the online casino industry with 3D graphics and other advances in the visual presentation of their games. These simulated sports betting options for casino players have high-quality graphics and are considered the best the industry has really seen at this point because no one has done anything like this before.
Playtech is one of the top online casino software providers, but they have lacked a little over the past couple of years while focusing on other sectors in the online gambling world. While they still have a great selection of titles with awesome software that's good for all different types of players, this announcement has shown that they have more up their sleeve than people have been anticipating, and it just goes to show that you should never count out an industry juggernaut like Playtech.
