What Is A Virtual Sports Betting Channel?
Virtual Sports Betting Channels are dedicated channels displaying live simulated games to all the outlets owned by a betting company. These games are simulated with randomly generated results – the results of every game are NOT predetermined. For gamers, this is an exclusive opportunity to place games that have an outcome within minutes, unlike the traditional form of betting.
The virtual sports betting channel may display any sport depending on the availability, however it is common to see soccer more often than others. For betting companies the traffic and income generated from owning a channel is immense.
How Does It Work?
The channels follow the standard means of transmission over satellite. The betting company prepares the content and makes it available. The content is sent via an uplink to a satellite – Occasionally, there are satellites designed for just betting companies to upload their contents. The stores and outlets are fitted with transmission equipments for receiving the downlink signals which usually include a dish and some sort of receiver.
Because of the importance of privacy and security, the signals are highly encrypted and can only be decrypted through the use of a certain type of receiver. Due to the efficiency of satellite technology, all virtual games are simulated concurrently across all outlets within the range of the satellite. Virtual games are often treated as a form of live streaming.
