Each combat includes up to five rounds, a wide variety of popular betting markets and with the possibility to bet on a different result for each round (Victory Combo). All of the instant games include a ‘skip’ feature that allows players to move instantly between the different phases of the games, without having to place a bet or watch the video. Martin Wachter, Golden Race CEO, said: “We are very pleased to present a variety of instant sports that are completely unique in the market, along with our new hyper realistic Virtual Football product and several other betting solutions at Stand S2-322. “We recommend our visitors book a meeting in advance through our website, to make sure that we can discuss the best offer according to their needs.”The virtual sports and betting solutions provider is, therefore, debuting an online version of 3×3 Basketball – the first virtual game in the industry with a cash-out function, which also offers in-play betting markets. Footage for the game is pre-recorded using real players from the US and Europe and set on a customisable background with animated logos and ad placements. There are two types of betting: pre-match markets and in-play markets including for the last minute of the gameplay, where the cashout function is made available.The betting markets for both of these types includes win-lose bets, handicaps (spread lines), total lines and race to 21 – a set of markets that guarantees attractive betting opportunities for players even in games that are no longer competitive in the final minute.Wachter also references the new version of Golden Race’s Virtual Football, to be showcased for the first time at ICE London – a game which he believes has “taken a qualitative visual leap forward to become the most authentic 3D football simulation”.He continued: “Mastering the latest motion capture trends, our expert Visual FX team has developed a full set of proprietary technologies that establish a major precedent in the virtual games industry.”An authentic football stadium has been recorded with on-site scanning, while the matches are given extra realism through sports commentators and true sports camera angles captured by professional cameramen. The game is said to feature real odds for every major league and tournament in the world.last_img read more

first_imgThe crisis due to the coronavirus has particularly affected sports clubs and workers, and this can best be seen in the example of the legendary Bosnian basketball player Samir Leric.The record holder in the number of appearances in the national team jersey obviously could not afford a big break, so he started working on the distribution of bread and other bakery products, Klix.ba news portal reports.The photo of Leric carrying a basket of bakery products quickly went viral on social media, and many are surprised that the man, who had a 12-year representative career, still does not play basketball.Klix.ba called Leric on Monday morning to check the allegations, and he confirmed that he is currently at his new job.In recent years, he was engaged in SKK Student from Mostar, who after the interrupted season due to the coronavirus gained the right to play in the first rank of BiH basketball.However, the lack of finances created difficulties for them, which is why they will not play in the BiH Championship, which obviously affected Leric, who decided to find a new job.Although Leric is currently doing an honorable job as a delivery man, this is just one example of how the coronavirus has had a negative impact on current and former top athletes. It remains to be seen whether the former basketball player who played in five European Championships will return to the basketball at perhaps better times.last_img read more
