On the eve of real life event

Inspired Entertainment, Inc. is set to launch its latest virtual horse race product, the Virtual Grand National, on air for the first time on national TV in the UK, on the eve of the iconic real life National Hunt horse race which is held annually at Aintree Racecourse.

Inspired’s Virtual Grand National has been developed to feature the 40 declared runners and riders from the 2017 Grand National field, and will use complex data algorithms to deliver the most realistic and sophisticated predictor race to date, the company said.

Following the Virtual Grand National’s debut this week, Aintree will become the first racecourse in the UK to be featured daily in Virtual Horse Races, provided exclusively by Inspired.

Events will be streamed to online and mobile players, and broadcast into retail betting and gaming locations worldwide through Inspired’s network of digital and land-based platforms.

A Grand National Race of Champions mobile slot game has also been exclusively developed and launched to coincide with the event.

“This project has been both a challenging and hugely rewarding one to work on with our partners,” Steve Rogers, chief commercial officer, Inspired, commented. “The end result is one of our most realistic and sophisticated Virtual Sports products to date, and I have no doubt that punters and viewers will be impressed by the quality and realism of the animation of the race”.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
