are one of the biggest bookmakers in the world and they are also among the most reputable firms in the industry. Victor Chandler is regarded as the gentleman bookmaker due to the fact that he has ensured his betting service is fair and transparent, while customers are often allowed to place much larger bets with BetVictor than with many competitors.
The online betting operation has moved with the times, with BetVictor not only offering a wide range of sports and markets but also now offering customers a wide range of promotions for the major sporting events. Many of the promotions are original, such as their Hole in Won golf offer which pays out on any player that shoots an ace at a particular tournament.
BetVictor also have a strong In-Play service which means that many customers use them as a one-stop shop for placing pre-event and live bets on a daily or weekly basis. You won’t have to wait long to be paid out by this bookmaker when you back a winner and we rate them very highly.
You will only be eligible to withdraw winnings accrued through the use of Promo Cash once you have staked at least 4 times the value of your initial bonus amount and these bets have fully settled. [For example: If you receive £5 in Promo Cash you must place further settled bet(s) with a cumulative stake value of at least £20 before you will be permitted to make a withdrawal of any winnings accrued through the use of Promo Cash.Background
BetVictor was originally founded as William Chandler in 1925, with the bookmaker having roots in the greyhound and horse racing industry (the two popular betting sports in the early part of the 20th century). In 1946, William’s son Victor officially set up a betting operation and it is something which has been carried forward by Victor Junior, who continues to play a leading role in ensuring that BetVictor are among the elite group of bookmakers.
Odds and Markets
The online operation has been based in Gibraltar for several years and BetVictor is the bookmaker of choice for many Premier League footballers who look to bet in large amounts. They have also landed many customer accounts from the Far East thanks to their excellent Asian Handicap service.
BetVictor are highly-rated when it comes to the range of sports on offer, the spread of markets for these sports and the actual odds that are available. You can expect to find 25 sports being covered at any given time and their horse racing service is particularly strong, with Best Odds Guaranteed available for all UK and Irish racing. This removes the need to take SP on the day of the race.
BetVictor’s football service is also very strong, with leagues from all over the world covered and you can expect a huge number of betting opportunities on the top football leagues such as Premier League, Champions League, La Liga and Serie A. There is nearly always something being covered In-Play for customers to bet on, with the odds updating every few seconds.
We like the BetVictor website for several reasons. The homepage is beautifully laid out, with the black and blue colour scheme making it look very appealing and the various sports are neatly housed in a collapsible left-hand menu which allows for easy navigation. Horse racing customers can get to their daily bets quickly thanks to BetVictor devoting a unit to this sport, while all the other upcoming sporting events are shown in a rotating unit.
Naturally, any customer wanting to bet In-Play will need to find their market quickly and BetVictor bring all live betting opportunities out to the homepage but also have a Live section which is where you will get the full hit of In-Play betting events and markets. Placing a bet is a very uncomplicated business and there is even the option to top up your balance as you are doing this.
It is nice to see that the live chat and ‘contact us’ link are clearly visible which allows customers to quickly get in touch with a member of the BetVictor staff and have their query solved in a short space of time. The customer service department work round the clock every day and are well-staffed so you should get a response on live chat in a matter of seconds, while there are also email and telephone contact options.Promotions
