With most of the sporting activities around the world placed on pause because of the coronavirus, there has been a rise in popularity of virtual gaming and betting.

According to Prime Sports CEO Xesus Johnston, its subsidiary JustBet benefited from a 60 per cent virtual gaming boost over a three-month period, as sports bettors had fun with artificial intelligence (AI) generated games in football, basketball, horseracing and dog racing.

Johnston credits the JustBet app as one of the best regionally for virtual gamers, with all the various calculations and permutations already worked out to make it easier for individuals who are interacting with the games.

As the various football leagues and sporting events restart around the world, JustBet will be offering Jamaicans a chance to 'Get Back In The Game', with a new marketing campaign geared towards rekindling the energy of online betting before the shutdown.
