Aug 18, 2007
Horse racing is one of the most popular spectator sports today. This is because of the fact that the sport is exciting and involves money. We cannot deny that most people who watch horse racing today do not come to observe 'the behavior of the equine on an oval orbit'. Most people today go to the track in order to gamble. Although, there are some people there who want to see how the labor of the horse trainers will become fruit.

One thing we cannot deny, however, is the fact that most sports, like horse racing is being changed by technology. People who cannot go to the track today can bet, watch and win a horse race on the internet. People who do so either have no time or no energy to actually go to a track. Why should you spend the energy to get all dressed for complete strangers when you can watch the race wearing shorts in your living room? In fact, technology has taken this even further and produced the horse racing computer game.

What are the different types of horse racing video games?

1) Betting many horse racing video games today allow people to bet their cash on a specific video horse. Some actually look like slot machines and allow people to bet their quarters on a specific horse. Others are just video machines that owners put up in bars in order to take bets from the patrons. Betting is an essential part of horse racing since many people are only interested in the sport because of the money. In many countries today, these machines are actually illegal.

2) Training many horse racing computer games put the emphasis on training. In fact, many trainers use this type of software to help guide them in taking proper care of their horse.

Some developers actually add a lot of realism and even have features such as resource management and career profiles.

This computer game puts you inside the shoes of a trainer, a jockey, or a manager. You need to be able to choose your investments wisely and you need to learn how to train your horse properly in order to succeed at this sport. You can also also place your horse in simulated races against other opponents in order to judge how well you have done. Of course, it goes without saying that you do not beat the game until you beat the other horses.

3) Internet the internet holds the future of computer gaming. Many people today are not satisfied with the action that a conventional horse racing computer game provides. Sometimes, it is better to test your skills as a trainer against another trainer. This is the reason why most racing games today have internet connectivity.
