Virtual Sports

Our diverse and growing virtual sports offering combines the latest market-leading 3D game graphics and Hollywood motion capture technology with a highly sophisticated Virtual Sports Simulator across a wealth of sports, including horse racing, football, tennis and basketball.

Our leading virtual products are the most sophisticated in the industry. Unlike other products on the market, Playtech has fully simulated every sport on offer, enabling players to study form and history, creating the richest experience possible.


We offer a full range of markets, and our graphics engine and servers allow for integrated odds, data feeds, bespoke in-game branding, tailored races, matches and games and promotional events.

Working closely with well-known racing venues, professional sports players and commentators, we design ultra-realistic, high quality environments, combining leading-edge graphics with CGI techniques, providing an experience comparable only to the real thing.

Industry-Leading Motion Capture Technology

The introduction and advancement of 3D Graphics in the last decade has seen competition increase within the virtual sports industry – but at Playtech, we continue to push the boundaries to create the most advanced offering in the market.

  • Omni-channel Development

    In line with our Playtech ONE Omni-channel strategy, our Virtual Sports products are designed to deliver the ultimate user experience across all platforms, channels and devices through a single account and wallet, with no need for different versions of games for different devices. This pioneering technology is integral to our offering and clearly separates us from other suppliers in the industry.

    On a wider industry level, Virtual Sports products have been largely undifferentiated for many years. Our significant investment in taking Virtual Sports to the next level gives operators in regulated and soon-to -regulate markets a fantastic opportunity to take advantage of its broad appeal and low cost to entry.

Virtual Sports Simulation

The Virtual Sports Simulation product provides a truly realistic gaming experience, handling event simulations, scheduling, odds, Random Number Generator (RNG) generated results and result visualisations.

Form and history information is available for and tailored to each sport, creating an extra sense of realism for players, who can feel they are making informed betting choices. This helps to create an experience as close to real sports betting as possible, providing betting opportunities even when real-life sporting markets are quiet.
