Published

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Covid-19 has driven American gamblers online and as LAS VEGAS is slowly awakening from its pandemic-induced slumber, we are just at the beginning to see how these gamblers are choosing online over land-based.

Photos from the casinos that welcomed visitors for the first time in nearly three months showed gaming tables surrounded by guests, some wearing masks.

Their thirst for a gamble is understandable. In quarantine, American high-rollers have struggled to find substitutes for the real thing. Whereas, say, British gamblers have been able to bet legally online under lockdown, Americans face a patchwork of state laws that give limited options for lawful remote betting.

An informative data report titled Virtual Sports Betting Market was published by The Research Insights and takes a closer look at the different aspects of the businesses, that are responsible for fuelling the growth of the companies.

Virtual Sports is a selection of scheduled fixed odds games (events) that use a random number generator (RNG) to decide the outcome. All customers view the same schedules and the same outcomes.

It studies different models that address the challenges faced by several industries as well as stakeholders. This Virtual Sports Betting Market is classified on the basis of demand-supply chain analysis, which accounts for the requirements of the products or services.

Most of the top industry companies from North America have confirmed their interest to join the Sports Betting & Casino Summit North America (Virtual Conference), which will open its virtual doors between 23-24 June and will feature a special panel discussion dedicated for Virtual Sports Betting.

The “VIRTUAL GAMING, IS IT GAINING TRACTION IN AMERICA AND CANADA?” panel discussion will be joined by some of the top names in virtual gaming, among which you will find Araksi Sargsyan (Head Of Business Development at DS Virtual Gaming), Martin Wachter (CEO at Golden Race), Lazar Miučin (VP of Strategic Partnerships at NSoft) and John Gordon (CEO & Co-Founder of Incentive Games).
