VIRTUAL HORSE RACING (VHR)
Horse racing has always been a passion for all, but it is always for a short period of time since there are very few horses that get to race at a specific time. For this reason a virtual horse racing game has so much in letting people engage in a sport they can’t get tired of.
Basically this is an animated game which has two interfaces, one where you see races going on through a hi-definition screen or television, and the other that involves placing bets through the attendants’ machines (terminals) that are server managed.
Races have a five minute interval between them and a player has various races to choose from that is from 1st race to the 99th race.
It also involves a total of 100 horses called “dogs” with each having a name and a race history attached to its name.
A total of eight horses participate in a single race and on these only the first three horses get to have bets placed on them.
HOW TO PLAY
A player must look at the odds, select his or her favorite combination or set and then go to the attendant and place a bet. Usually bets that are more precise get to have a higher payout compared to those that are most likely placed.
You should note that all bets start from 1,000 shillings onwards.
- WIN: Bet on winning horse.
- PLACE: Bet on horse to end in first or second place
- SHOW: Bet on horse to end in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place
- QUINELLA: Select TWO horses to end in 1st and 2nd place, in any order.
- EXACTA: Select TWO horses to end in 1st and 2nd place, in the exact order.
Place a bet on one of the eight horses to win the race i.e. to come out in the first position.
Place a bet on a horse to end the race in either the first or the second position. This one is not as precise as the first one (WIN) therefore its odds are less.
This involves placing bet on a horse that you think will end the race in the first, second or third position. This means that you are having three possible types of scores, 1st, 2nd and 3rd. For that reason it has the least odds.
As compared to the previous sets, this one requires you to bet on two horses; one of which to end up in the first place and the other in the second place. It has the second biggest payout.
This also involves placing a bet on two horses but this is so exact as it is pronounced. Here, you have to specify which horse will end up in the first position and that which will end up in the second position. It has the highest payout so far because it is the most precise set of bets.
