UX, design and software development specialists, Degree 53, has announced the creation of a sweepstake generator for a Virtual Grand National to be supplied for remote workers. The new Virtual Grand National will air on ITV on April 4th at 17:00 BST.

The Grand National sweepstake is a highlight of British office life, so why should 2020 be any different. As fans are working from home, Degree 53 is now providing an opportunity for everyone to run their own sweepstakes and take part in the event. Funds will be raised to benefit the NHS.

Details of the Virtual Grand National:

Bookmakers in the UK and Inspired Entertainment are bringing British viewers the Virtual Grand National because the actual event was canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The Betting and Gaming Council is supportive of the effort and while bookmakers are taking bets, they will be meeting a code of ethics and donating profits to the NHS during the pandemic.

Offices that are working remotely that cannot participate in a sweepstake drawing with co-workers, can use the website free of charge to make horse picks for everyone in the workplace.

According to the source

Managing Director Andrew Daniels commented on the new Virtual Grand National by stating that the virtual offering will help to boost morale as well as raise funds for NHS Heroes. The company sees the virtual racing option as something that can easily be done remotely and will bring people together during this difficult time.
