Simulated Reality League (SRL) is a virtual sports simulation that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to determine the outcomes of matches instead of real-life encounters between teams. In South Africa, Simulated Reality Leagues are available for Soccer, Tennis and Cricket.
The Simulated Reality League follows genuine leagues and tournaments worldwide, such as the EPL, and offers both Pre-match and Live betting options depending on your preference. Detailed statistics, game analysis, and league tables provide punters in South Africa with a sports betting experience as close to reality as possible without being the real deal!
In this article, we take a look at how the Simulated Reality League works, which leagues are available, plus how and where to bet in South Africa.
How does the Simulated Reality League work?
The Simulated Reality League games you bet on in South Africa are based on real historical data from over 500,000 football matches worldwide. This intricate data is sourced from a company called Betradar, which supplies many of the world’s best bookmakers with their odds. Using the power of AI and machine learning, the Simulated Reality League scrapes millions of data points from matches to create a wealth of information about each team’s strengths, weaknesses and overall form.
The AI then uses the available data to simulate a match as close to real life as possible from a statistical standpoint. The result is a more predictable match from a betting perspective, making the SRL very attractive to punters in South Africa. Thanks to all the available data collected by the AI, punters can access detailed stats and analysis before placing their bets!
For example, if Manchester City has scored at least two goals in their last 10 matches, SRL data would be a more accurate predictor of this occurring again than if you bet on a real-life match. That said, the SRL odds available will reflect the likely chance of Manchester City scoring two or more goals, as they would when placing a traditional soccer bet.

Where to bet on the Simulated Reality League
At the time of writing (Aug 2023), the Simulated Reality League has been suspended until further notice. This type of sports betting gained huge popularity in South Africa during the COVID lockdowns, but once live sports started up again in 2021, a lot of punters lost interest. At the time, Hollywoodbets and Supabets were the only bookies offering Simulated Reality Leagues in South Africa, so we expect them to be offered on these sites again if they are restarted anytime soon.
