BetVictor Sportsbook Review

Last Updated: 

There are few bigger or better-known betting sites in the gambling industry than BetVictor right now. 

The company have been about since 1946 and was started by William Chandler. It's gone on to change names several times, although has always stayed connected to the Chandler family.

Its online journey started back in 1999 and they have been able to produce a range of brilliant products ever since. Even though they are now based in Gibraltar, the company can offer their gambling services to punters all over the world. 

As you would expect from such an iconic brand, BetVictor has been at the forefront of sponsorship for both sports teams and sporting events. Over the years they have sponsored the likes of Chelsea FC as well as bringing on board gambling ambassadors such as Michael Owen, Harry Redknapp and Teddy Sheringham. The most notable of the sporting events has to be that of the Victor Chandler Chase, a Group 1 race run at Ascot Racecourse each year.

Current Promotions

BetVictor has lots of promotions on offer throughout the year. Here are some of the current offers:

  • Harry's Picks Free Bet – Place 5 bets of £2 or more on any sports market and get £1 to use on Harry Redknapp's weekend picks.
  • Run For Your Money – If your horse fails to start or loses all chance of winning at the start for whatever reason, then you will get a cash refund on selected races.
  • Acca Insurance – If 1 leg of your 5+ fold (cumulative odds of 5.00+) lets you down then you will get your stake back up to £10.

Sports and Markets Available at BetVictor

There's a crazy range of sports on offer at BetVictor. Football is dominating on the site and few can match their market and even game coverage. Outside of this, horse race betting is another sport that is brilliantly covered, along with the likes of tennis, cricket, golf, rugby and a range of US-based sports as well.

It's not just the range of sports though. The amount of markets available on events will rival anything you'll find at another bookmaker. That number just increases when you factor in the #PriceItUp tool. We'll have more on that a little later.

Betting Features

The first place that we have to start is the in-play betting section. This is an area of the bookmaker that has benefited from the recent facelift and now feels much more connected to the rest of the site.

The horse racing section allows you to access the bookmaker's live betting section. Races from the UK and Ireland, with some international races as well, can be streamed from within the race card of each race. All you need to access this is to have placed a bet of £1 or more on said race and you get to start watching about 5 minutes before the start of that race.

The #PrictItUp bet builder is one of our favourites at BetVictor and this allows you to create your bets. You might be thinking you can do this anyway, but not for markets that are related to each other. 

All you need to do is pick the game that you want to build a bet for and then simply choose the bets that you want to include. For example, this could be Harry Kane to score first, both teams to score and over 4.5 corners in each half. BetVictor will then give you an instant price for that bet. What's great about it is that you can build your bet on a variety of sports. 

If you aren't sure which bets you want to include, you can simply take a look at what others have built. You can also share your bets with your mates so they can get involved as well.

Betting Odds with BetVictor

BetVictor has been able to win awards for its pricing structure in the past. Their current structure is just as good, if not better than pretty much all of the competition. It's the consistency that we found to be most remarkable and they were able to offer incredible prices on so many different sports and markets.

Payments and Banking Methods

The first thing to note when banking at BetVictor is that the deposit methods that you can access will depend on the country and the currency that you have chosen. While it is region specific, debit card, Neteller, PayPal, Skrill and Paysafecard are available to most users.

Withdrawals are available on all of these methods where applicable. There are no fees at any point for banking with BetVictor and payments are generally processed pretty quickly. Debit cards are within 3 to 6 working days and e-wallets within 1 to 3 working days. However, we have found that often they are much quicker than their reported timeframes.

Desktop/Mobile Experience

BetVictor has gone through several rebrands and site refreshes over the last 20 years or so. They are constantly changing their platform to make it better for their users. The latest update came about in 2019 and we have to admit, it's their best yet.

The menu system down the left-hand side is brilliant. It works like a menu system on your computer in that the page doesn't move, and you can navigate within this until you find roughly where you want to go. It means you can either select a sport to get an overview of the whole sport or just use the ladder system to get a more specific look at the marketplace.

The app has also had a facelift as well and again, You have the menu section at the bottom allowing you to easily access your open bets, bet slip, cash out and then the casino.

Everything moves and loads instantly. There is no waiting around. It's hands down one the best-looking bookmakers and betting apps on the market right now.

Customer Support 

Customer support is one of the best in the business for us. The thing to note is that there are plenty of methods to contact them. Live Chat is available on site and email and phone are available too. BetVictor has a great presence on Facebook and Twitter, meaning social media is there as an option.

Responsible Gambling Features

Responsible gambling is something that BetVictor takes very seriously. They were one of the first to sign up for the Gamstop campaign which requires players to verify who they are before they can deposit and bet on-site.

They include a wide range of features as well, including betting limits, limited time on-site, self-exclusion and a gambling overview to see how much players are spending. They also work with several organisations that help those who need it, including Gamcare, Gamblers Anonymous, Gambling Therapy Apps and Money Advice Service.

Our Verdict 

You can't spend over 70 years within the same industry and not be respected as one of the best. BetVictor has not only managed to stay relevant in a sector that is constantly changing, but they are setting the standards, at least in terms of design and functionality.

If we had to add in a negative mark, it would be for the lack of features. But the amazing odds, a huge range of sports and betting markets, coupled with a truly stunning betting app and generous welcome offer, make them one of the best.
