Within weeks of ESPN reporting that a virtual race horse sold for $9,000 at Digiturf.com, breaking news is that another horse just sold for $7,000 in their virtual horse racing community!
It makes you wonder what they're mixing into their Kool-Aid because a virtual race horse only costs $15 at Digiturf.com. So what's up with players paying thousands of dollars in cash for a digital race horse that can only be raced on the internet?
The simple answer is because virtual horse racing at Digiturf.com is extremely lucrative - and we mean extremely lucrative; not just a few dollars but a few thousand dollars in sponsorships that can run in excess of $320,000 each season. That's not pin money, that could be a down payment on a house, car or even a live champion thoroughbred.
Unfortunately it's not that easy because virtual horse racing at Digiturf.com isn't a lucky draw but rather a fiercely competitive, skill-based game that requires determination, strategy and some understanding of real-life horse racing.
There aren't any lucky-breaks at Digiturf.com because any success is earned the hard way - by outrunning the competition. Digiturf.com isn't a casino game of chance where you're playing against the house, because you're competing against other horse racing enthusiasts all around the world who are equally eager to outrun your horses. With $320,000 at stake you can only imagine how competitive this little online virtual horse racing game can be. Let's just say that it's not child's play. In fact, you need to be at least eighteen years old to play it!
So how does it work? You receive a free virtual horse when you start your own stable at Digiturf.com, followed by another plus $10 Bonus when you activate your account, so that you can cut your teeth by racing your horses in a few free races. Before you start champing at the bit to start winning money just remember that you'll be competing against a community with considerably more experience in virtual horse racing. It is highly advisable to spend some time training, racing, reading the help sections and watching your horses live on the real-to-life 3D RaceViewer. There's plenty of time to win money so don't be in too much of a hurry to lose it just because you're a little over-enthusiastic.
A virtual horse racing season at Digiturf.com (4 months) is sponsored with $320,000 which is divided between daily races, monthly promotional races and the seasonal championships. Currently Digiturf.com is in its 38th season of virtual horse racing and trainers are celebrating it a little more enthusiastically than usual by investing their winnings back into the game because in addition to the generous sponsorships (which are like dangling a carrot on a stick) there are also the highly prestigious Championship Series which are worth $79,000 in their own right.
You need a champion race horse, albeit a virtual race horse, to win a Championship Series but if you get one and know how to train properly to win its championships then you could find yourself on a rollercoaster of virtual horse racing highs and lows as you win some races and you lose some races but you're still guaranteed the thrill of your life.
So why did last month's auction generate so much attention for the virtual horse they call 'Madremonte' that sold for $9,000? Likewise, why did the latest horse called 'Frankel Uk' sell for $7,000?
Because they've already earned that much money within four months of virtual horse racing, and they're expected to earn five times as much before they're retired from active virtual racing next year. It's not easy, but then the best things in life never are.
