So, what's to know about simulation sports:

What are Simulation Sports?

Unlike e-Sports, which are controlled by gamers, simulation sports are composed entirely of games between the computer's AI (artificial intelligence). Humans have no say on what happens during the match.

The CPU vs. CPU matchups are new to the betting world, but they offer an exciting sight as to how the sports world would play out if it were contested in a strictly virtual environment.

How to Bet on Simulation Sports?

You can bet on Simulation Sports just like you do in real sports. Using the same analysis, you would do in an actual game. Betting in games like Madden NFL, NBA 2K, or FIFA, to mention a few, you don't have to worry as to which player would be most talented since it's a CPU vs. CPU sim.

So what does this mean? Well, the teams have players with ratings based on their real-life talent, so for example, you're planning to place a wager in NBA 2K Sim game, and the teams facing are the Los Angeles Lakers against the Phoenix Suns. 

The Lakers are a top-two team in the league. At the same time, the Suns don't have that kind of talent, and the matchup will give LeBron James and Anthony Davis a considerable advantage while the Suns will have to rely on Devin Booker's scoring ability. 

So, taking the Lakers spread would be an excellent bet.

What Kind of Bets Can I Make?

Since it's sports we are talking about, even if they're virtual, the type of bets you can make are pretty similar to their real-life representations.

Let's take Madden NFL as an example. Say the game is the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Miami Dolphins. The Steelers had one of the top defenses in the league while Miami struggled all year long to make plays. Steelers will be the favorites, and we'll give you a money line, a spread line, an over/under the line, just as if this was an actual NFL game.

What kind of simulation sports can I bet on?

You can bet on simulation football, basketball, and hockey games, but we expect more sports games will join the trend soon. The football streams are through Madden 20, while NBA 2K20 and NHL 20 are the home basketball and hockey.

Is betting on simulation sports safe?

Oh, yes, it is! Wagering on Simulation Sports is 100% safe. The settings for all games are set to default, meaning both teams have an equal opportunity to win the game. 

We work tirelessly to bring you the most secure, entertaining, and innovative ways of betting, so you can rest assured this is a safe way to make money.

Simulation Sports Betting Rules

Simulation Sports rules are simple:

  • A completely random computer simulation determines all results.
  • Games must be fully completed for bets to have action.
  • If for any reason, the game goes offline, it will restart where it left off once the connection is back, so it doesn't lose the progress.
  • If the game fails to autosave, then all action up to that point will be lost, and all bets will be classified as NO ACTION.
  • If connectivity cannot be re-established and the game is not done yet, all bets will have NO ACTION.
  • First-half betting: The first half must be completed for bets to have action.
  • Second half betting: The bet description will show if the game will have second half wagering or not.
  • Second half betting includes an eventual overtime.
