Build a Sports Betting Simulator in 30 Minutes

You’ve been asking for it, and here it is! A guide to building a sports betting simulator in less than 30 minutes. The perfect guide for anyone wanting to get into sports betting but without the money to spare. You will learn step-by-step how to build a functioning sports betting simulator, with just the cards and dice you probably already have in your own home.

Follow along as we walk you through the whole process of building a sports betting simulator. From picking the right games to setting the betting limits, this tutorial will walk you through everything you need to know to get started.

Choose Your Games Wisely

You won’t be able to create a functioning sports betting simulator without first choosing your games wisely. Different games have different odds, and you don’t want to waste your time with games that you won’t be able to bet on. The key to building a profitable sports betting simulator is finding games that are suited for practice and have high enough limits so that you don’t run out of money quickly. As for the odds, you want to go for games with odds that are relatively close to what you would see at a real life betting session. The more accurate the odds are, the more likely you are to become a successful sports bettor when you do venture online. 

Set The Limits Of Your Bet

When you set the limits of your bet, you are setting a budget for how much you are willing to lose. You don’t want to set the limits too high, otherwise you might end up in a pinch when you actually want to bet. On the other hand, if you set them too low, you might lose money on small wins that you should have been able to handle. The ideal limits for your bet should be somewhere in the middle, but this is extremely subjective and depends on how much risk you are willing to take. You should set the limits higher for a test run before you start accepting wagers from real money, as this will allow you to get a sense of how the simulator works and how much you can actually lose before you set your actual limits higher. Setting limits is pretty straightforward – once you’ve chosen your games, all you need to do is enter the amount you are willing to wager per each game. For example, let’s say you’ve chosen English football (soccer) as one of your games and set your limits to £10 per game. In this case, you would enter 10 as your wager per game, with a maximum of £20 per day. You can set your limits to whatever you like, but make sure you keep within the same currency so that you don’t have to trouble yourself with changing coins. As for the max bet, this is the amount you are willing to wager for the entire session, meaning it will never change regardless of whether you win or lose. For example, let’s say you’ve set a £10 max bet for one of your chosen games. If you happen to win, you will automatically be credited with a further £10 bonus. When this happens, you can increase your maximum bet for the rest of the session by clicking on the “change” button below the card tray.

Note: Many online sportsbooks offer various types of promotions, so make sure you keep an eye out for these kinds of things when setting up your account.

Create User Accounts

If you are planning on sharing this computer with other people, especially family members who aren’t very tech-savvy, you might want to create user accounts so that they can’t access your SimCash. The accounts section of the dashboard will give you the option to create new user accounts, which you can do by entering a username and password. Once created, make sure you log out of all accounts before continuing with assembly instructions, as otherwise, you might end up sharing your device with someone else who happens to walk in at the wrong moment.

Installed The Necessary Software

Now that you have your games and limits set, it’s time to download and install the necessary software. This will include things like NetBet Mobile, which you can download from the Google Play Store or the App Store, depending on whether you are using Android or iOS devices, respectively. As mentioned above, you will also need something to track your bets, so we would recommend checking out the BetChain Android App. Not only does it offer 24/7 support, but it also connects to most of the major online sportsbooks, allowing you to make wagers from almost anywhere. Finally, if you are running Windows 10, you might want to consider trying out our own software, the Windows 10 App Pack, which already has a lot of the apps you will need for a functioning sports betting simulator. Not only that, but it also has all the necessary drivers, including one for Prolong, which is used for live sports streaming. You will learn more about this in a bit.

Assembled The Hardware

Once the software is installed, it’s time to bring your computer or device into its final resting place. If you are using an Apple device, this process will be a bit different than if you are using a Windows device. For starters, your screen will be attached to the main chassis using an adapter that converts the HDMI signal into a VGA plug. Once this is done, you can use the Apple TV Remote to turn your device on and off or navigate between apps using the touch surface on the device itself. When complete, you will need to download the Apple Configuration Utility and run it once you’ve plugged in your device. After this is done, you can launch the Apple TV app on your device and enjoy your new setup. If you are using a Windows device, you will need to bring it closer to the TV and connect it to the PC’s HDMI port using an HDMI extender cable. Once this is done, you will be able to use the Windows keyboard and mouse to navigate between apps and settings on your device. When complete, launch the Windows Configuration Utility and make sure your device is connected to the internet before powering it up. Launching the app and connecting to the internet could take a while, so just be patient.

Finished Product

Once all the hardware is assembled, it’s time to take a deep breath and feel pleased with yourself for finishing such a complicated project. You will now have a functioning computer or device that is ready to provide you with hours of entertainment as you learn how to navigate the software and put in practice what you’ve learned. Congratulations!
