Virtual Sports are computer-generated games whereby the outcome is generated by complex multifaceted algorithms for the ultimate purpose of betting. These games play out virtually and can be viewed by anyone who wishes to place bets. Where usual sports have off seasons and cannot be viewed all the time, virtual sports ensure that all sports can be wagered on throughout the year, 24 hours a day.
Not to be confused with its relative, esports, virtual sports rely entirely on computer-generated data and graphics to obtain an outcome. Esports relies on people driving the games for their outcomes. The two, although thought to be similar, are vastly different in their basic infrastructure.
