Given that there are no soccer games being played at the moment, we are getting soccer betting withdrawal symptoms. But, even though there is no real soccer betting, i.e. betting on real soccer games, it doesn’t mean you can’t bet on soccer. Far from it. Very recently, 3 soccer betting products have launched, which are definitely worth looking at. Below we will explain what these are and give you links to find out more information about them.
JIKA sport is a virtual soccer game. You get to watch a quick 6 minute virtual soccer game and bet on quite a few different betting markets. You also get to watch the game as it plays on the betting site you are betting with. The only concern is that watching the game will use some of your data. See our full write up about JIKA sport here.
Electronic (or eSoccer) launched very recently. It is part of the eSports sector, in that players are playing online, on Playstation. Each team nominates a player to play on their behalf and you bet on that actual game. There are plenty of leagues and matches happening every single day. Plus you can bet on the same markets you would normally bet on with real soccer, although not as many. See our full wrote up for Electronic League Betting.
This is a brand new and very interesting betting product. Betradar has taken the historical data for tens of thousands of soccer matches and used their system to make a prediction on exactly how a game will play out (as close as possible to the rel thing) based on all the variables they have. You watch the game on the betting site you are playing with but you don’t see actual players. Instead you see a little ball move around the soccer pitch.
