Summary

The elegantly named BetVictor brand (sounds like you’ve won your bet already) is one of the most distinguished and well-established sportsbooks in the game. Originally established way back in 1946, its online presence began in the late nineties.

Around the same time, head honcho Victor Chandler moved the brand to Gibraltar, which was a rather controversial move designed to dodge UK tax laws. Today the BetVictor brand is known for offering some of the best odds in the business, and, along with an unblemished track record, is also seen as one of the industry’s biggest innovators.

The brand offers excellent bonuses and incentives to new players signing up with their sportsbook as well as their casino.

This includes free bets, cash-backs, insurances, and more. While most of this is focused on their sportsbook, the brand still offers one of the most competitive casino platforms in the business, with over 700 games, including a live casino and mobile gaming options. We’re super impressed with BetVictor, and you can read all about it as we unbox this mainstay sportsbook below.

Ratings Breakdown

Overall

One of the most effective ways to rate any gambling brand is to give them a rating out of five stars. Each section in our review is rated in this way, giving you an at-a-glance impression of how well the brand performs in key areas. In the case of BetVictor, we’ve gone with an overall rating of four out of five stars. It would be great to give them the Full Monty of five stars, but there are one or two little niggles that prevent this from being a reality. You’ll see why this is as you go through our massive unboxing of BetVictor.

Signing up with this sportsbook was one of the fastest and easiest experiences we’ve ever had.

Forget about all that back and forth confirmation by email. With BetVictor, we were in like Flynn, no worries and no fuss – just how we like it! The virtually instant help pop-up for anyone who might be signing up with an online sportsbook for the first time was a nice touch.

Speaking of support, unlike some sportsbooks where you have to spend hours searching for their support details, BetVictor has an elegant solution. A small question mark icon can be seen near the bottom right-hand side of the page. No matter what page you’re on, clicking on it expands the set of clickable icons, which includes live chat, email, and a FAQ.

Perhaps the only slight negative overall is the fact that BetVictor tends to focus somewhat more on UK sports and Irish horse racing. However, this has improved in recent months, and we’ve seen more international markets on offer, particularly in trending sports such as MMA.

Sportsbook

It should come as no real surprise that BetVictor scores full marks in this section, since sports betting is their real bread and butter. Sure, the brand added a great online casino a few years ago, which is now one of the top platforms online, but sports betting is clearly their first love.

This might not matter to some punters, but one of our favorite things about the BetVictor sportsbook is the way it looks. Whoever designed this website knows a thing or two about understated elegance! Clean white and soft blue really add something special to the overall look and feel of BetVictor, and at least for us, it radiated a more professional sense of confidence.

Game Variety

When BetVictor expanded by adding an online casino into the mix, there were more than a few punters who were ready to jump ship. However, these boys know what they are doing, and in true British Bulldog style, they went out to prove their detractors wrong. If Winston Churchill was alive today, this would be his bookie!

BetVictor knows how to do things the right way, and provides well over 700 games because they know not everyone is into sports. You will find plenty to keep you happy, including the latest slots, classic and progressive jackpot games, table games like roulette and blackjack, and more. However, in our opinion, the ‘pièce de résistance’ is their ultra-sexy live casino!

Cashouts

As with most online sportsbooks and casinos, their payment section usually lets them down to some degree. While you can’t please everyone all the time, being able to satisfy the majority of your customers is always the goal (or at least should be).

To this end, BetVictor does their best to keep their players happy, and have earned a solid reputation for offering some of the fastest and easiest payouts in the business. On the slightly negative side, the brand doesn’t carry as many options as other betting brands, although they do stock the essentials, including fast bank transfers, e-Wallets, and credit/debit cards.

Bonuses

Here we found that BetVictor would do well to include a few more nice incentives for their casino players, since the majority of their promos and incentives are geared towards their sportsbook. Still, they do provide a separate sportsbook welcome bonus which gives you up to £40 in Free Bets, and a separate casino welcome bonus of a 100% bonus up to £100.

Additional promos are made up mostly of enhanced sports betting offers on their horse racing markets, football, and other sports. Expect to find classic evergreens like ACCA insurance offers, cashbacks on weekend betting, best odds guaranteed on horse racing, and a few more.

There is an additional casino promotion currently on the go where you can win up to £5,000 in casino cash and bonuses by playing Sticky Bandits slot.

Customer Service

As expected, BetVictor customer support is excellent in terms of how well-trained and friendly their support staff is. We gave all their available options a go and found their live chat to be the best option.

Service is excellent and very quick, and you’ll find yourself chatting with a team member within a few seconds of initiating the chat. Email response is also very good, with most reply turnarounds within a few hours. While we couldn’t seem to find any way to call them directly, there is the option to request a call back, which does work quite well.

User Interface

BetVictor offers one of the cleanest and most user-friendly betting interfaces we’ve ever tried in all our years of online sports betting and gambling. In our opinion, an online sportsbook should be easy to use (even for an absolute novice bettor), should be logically laid out, and come with as few distractions as possible. BetVictor ticks all of these boxes with aplomb, and getting to all of the key features, including markets, odds, payments, and support is virtually (and literally) effortless.

Reliability

Again, BetVictor scores full marks in this department, if for no other reason than the fact that they have over seven decades of experience in sports betting! In terms of their online history, BetVictor has ZERO blemishes on their gaming track record, something that is rather remarkable.

In speaking to many experienced punters, we’ve even heard that multiple generations within the same family have been betting with BetVictor over the years, which is quite intriguing.

Sportsbook | An In-Depth Look

If sports betting is what really fires you up, then BetVictor should be your starting point, since these guys have set the benchmark by which all online sportsbooks should be measured against. Using their sportsbook platform is a breeze, and if you’re the type of punter that bets every day, you want something that is fast, intuitive, and easy to read at a glance.

When looking at the sportsbook homepage, one can immediately see if there is anything that catches their fancy, since all sports markets are listed along the left-hand side of the clean user interface. BetVictor covers virtually all popular sports and markets, including all the favorites like football (soccer), rugby, horse racing, greyhounds, tennis, and more. They also give you a solid selection of American sports, including American football, basketball, baseball, and hockey. Fans of slightly more exotic or adventurous sports will also find interesting markets in speedway racing, water polo, volleyball, and even a bit of politics.

Okay, so admittedly their range is not quite as huge as some other online sportsbooks, especially in non-UK and Irish markets, but we’ve already mentioned that this is one of our little niggles about BetVictor. However, if you’re into trending sports like MMA, you will find a few great bets and interesting odds here.

Sports/Events Offered

While we did mention earlier that BetVictor does tend to focus a tad on the UK and Irish and European markets in football and horse racing, they do cover quite a lot of ground in other areas too. Granted, they may not be as varied as some of the big sportsbooks, but you will certainly find plenty worth betting on here.

Different Bet Types Offered

As we touched on earlier, BetVictor is mostly known for their football and horse racing markets, so this is where you will get most of your action with the brand. Of course, there are plenty of great betting options and odds offered across all the other sports that they do cover. However, BetVictor is mostly known as the go-to brand for soccer and racing fans.

An interesting and very useful tool that is available to BetVictor punters is the ability to adjust the odds display from a simple drop-down menu to suit your betting style . This allows players from all the various regions in which BetVictor is available to comfortably bet in the odds format that makes sense to them.

Odds Display Options:

  • US
  • Fractions
  • Decimal
  • Indo
  • Chinese

We took a closer look at some of the different bet types that you can find at BetVictor over a range of their different sports markets. Many of these betting options are quite common among sportsbooks, particularly the popular betting options available in soccer/football, basketball, and horse racing. Some betting options are also unique to BetVictor, and we’ve included one or two here for good measure, as well as their unique bet-enhancing innovations.

Price it Up

Remember when we said that BetVictor was known for being innovative? Well, this is one of those examples of BetVictor’s thinking outside of the box when it comes to betting options. Price it Up allows BetVictor punters to create their very own, unique bet by simply using the Price it Up feature.

Just about anything goes, and as long as you can create your formula for what you think is the perfect bet, simply tweet BetVictor your bet with the hashtag #PriceItUp!, and BetVictor’s traders will do their best to price up your unique custom bet.

Accept Higher Odds

If a punter selects this option, it will automatically accept the higher odds in the event that those odds have changed. This is, of course, if you added the bet to their bet slip, and actually confirmed the bet.

Accumulator/Fold bet

This type of bet allows you to put your winnings from your first bet onto your second bet and so forth. There are various accumulator bets which you can take, including fourfold accumulators, fivefold accumulators, six-fold accumulators, and so on.

Ante-Post Prices

These are prices for major sporting events, usually given before the day of the event. Punters get better odds on these events, and in return, they take the chance that their stake will not be returned if their pick pulls out.

1 X 2 Bet

One of the most popular bets in football (soccer), as well as other sports. This bet is also known as a three-way bet or a full-time result bet. Betting options include betting on a home result, away result, or a tie result.

Combination Forecast

Make three or more selections, including every possible outcome of those selections finishing first and second, to create a combination forecast which consists of six bets in all.

Correct Score bet

One of the most popular betting options in football, where you need to correctly predict the final score of a game, particularly a football game.

Each way (EW) bet

This bet consists of two wagers, with the first wager for the win, and the second wager for a placing in the results. So for example, a £5 each-way bet will cost £10 in total for a single bet.

Exacta/Perfecta bet

In horse races or greyhound races where there are more than three runners, placing an exacta bet requires you to pick the winner and second place in the correct order of finish.

First Goal Scorer

Another very popular betting option found mostly in football, where you predict the first goal scorer of the game.

First Try Scorer

Exactly the same sort of betting option that you get in football, except here you need to predict the first player to score a try in a rugby match.

Half Time result – 45 minutes bet

A bet that correctly predicts the score of a game at half-time.

Half Time/Full Time bet

A bet that correctly predicts the score of a game at half time as well as at full time. This is a single bet with a single price offer.

Match Spread betting

Essentially handicap betting, meaning that teams involved were given a starting points advantage or disadvantage. In this ‘spread’ for example – +5, -5 is applied to their final score.

Minute to win it bet

A wager that correctly predicts when there will be a corner, throw in, free kick ,or a goal during the specified minute. This specified minute is displayed on the Minute to Win it coupon as the ‘from’ time until the ‘to’ time.

Money Line Bet

This is one of the most common betting options that you will find at most good sportsbooks, and it involves a simple match bet between team A and team B. This bet is super popular because it is simple and to the point.

Multiple Bets

Multiple bets can consist of either a double, treble, or accumulator bet. A win on the first bet is automatically placed on the second bet, and if the second bet wins, the win is automatically placed on the third bet, and so on. This will carry on until all selections have won, or until one of the selections lose, in which case the entire bet is lost.

Over/Under Betting

Punters can bet on whether the total number of goals or points scored in a game or match will be over or under a certain given number (total). These bets are most common in football and in basketball.

Casino

Aside from their excellent sportsbook, BetVictor has become a major player in the online casino industry, too. When we say major player, we really mean MEGA player, with well over 700 quality casino games to choose from.

While many other competing sportsbooks will add a basic online casino option to simply appear to be adding value, BetVictor approaches their online casino with the same dedication as they approach their sportsbook.

Live casino games are streamed from dedicated studios or actual brick-and-mortar casinos, using the latest digital video technology. In most cases, the games are streamed from dedicated studios which look exactly like a real casino lobby.

Every table is the real thing, and each one is staffed by experienced, professional dealers and croupiers. Live dealer casino games come with great in-game features, which include the ability to interact with the dealer. This helps to add even more realistic authenticity to every live game.

You would think that stocking over 700 casino games in every popular casino gaming genre would be enough. However, BetVictor is continually adding new casino games to their menus, and their site features a ‘New’ tab which conveniently showcases their exciting new acquisitions, sourced from their multiple software partners.

This allows BetVictor players a very easy way to find the newest additions, instead of having to search for them and potentially miss a cool new game to play. It is these small value-added services that make BetVictor one of the best gaming brands to sign up with online. The vast majority of their casino games are also available to play on their mobile platform, which is compatible with Windows Phone, iOS, Blackberry, and Android devices.

Deposit and Withdrawal Options

BetVictor offers a decent range of payment options, although perhaps not as many as other leading online sportsbooks and casinos. However, we feel that what they do provide covers the range of popular preferences and should suit all punters and casino gamblers.

This includes the credit and debit card options of the MasterCard and Visa variety, eWallet options including Neteller and Skrill, and a number of fast bank transfers, including BACs, which is exclusively for UK customers. Additional options may be available depending on your specific region and currency, such as PayPal for certain regions.

While BetVictor may have its roots firmly in English soil, today they are a true global brand, and as such, they offer a range of international currency options. This includes US dollars, the Euro, Australian dollars, Swiss Francs, New Zealand dollar, Danish kroner, Norwegian kroner, Romanian lei, and of course Pounds Sterling. The brand also offers additional currencies for other markets, which includes the South African Rand and the Singapore dollar.

One of the newer currency options that is now available at BetVictor is Bitcoin, an exclusively internet-based currency which is fast gaining major traction with online players worldwide.

Bitcoin allows for near complete anonymity when funding an online casino or sportsbook account, and allows withdrawing in the same fashion. BetVictor is well-known for being one of the fastest brands when it comes to paying out winnings to their customers.

In most cases, payments are cleared within a few hours – usually under 24 hours. Of course, one has to add additional times for specific payment options. For example, most eWallet transactions are processed between 24 hours and 48 hours, and credit and debit cards can take up to six business days, although most are completed within a day or two.

More good news is that all deposits and withdrawals, regardless of the payment type, are completely free of charge. It is also important that when you first sign up with BetVictor, you take care of all necessary paperwork that relates to your preferred payment option. This includes all necessary bits of identification and verification. That way, when it comes time to make your first withdrawal from the cashier, you can avoid any unnecessary aggravation or frustration.

There are a couple of additional user features available on the BetVictor cashier page, which takes the brand from ‘really good’ to ‘absolute top drawer.’ BetVictor has included a deposit limit function along with a ‘Reality Check’ feature.

Both of these tools are designed to help their players self-monitor to ensure that they never spend more at BetVictor than they can afford, and to also ensure that their gambling never becomes an out-of-control problem – simply brilliant features!

Customer Service

Customer service is always a key factor for any online sportsbook or casino, since this is a ‘people business.’ Any brand that is unable or unwilling to provide their customers with the very best in customer support and service will most certainly not last long in the business.

BetVictor has, in one form or another, been in the ‘people business’ since the 1930s, and they know a thing or two about making customers happy.

BetVictor provides a variety of support features on their website, which allows their customers to access the right support option for their needs at that particular moment. One of the things we found to be rather visually appealing on the brand’s website is their little support icon. This simple button is everywhere on the site.

It’s kind of like having someone hold your hand when you’re in an unfamiliar environment, so it’s always a reassuring feature, especially for total newbies. The button features a little speech bubble with a question mark inside it, so everyone knows right away where they can get help from. Clicking on the button expands it into a set of distinctive icons, one for each key support feature.

The three additional icon buttons are dedicated to a Chat Now button, an info or ‘Learn More’ button, and an email button. Clicking on each one respectively will open a new window, either a chat window or a mini-FAQ window (Learn More) which will also link to their main FAQ page, and finally a pop-up email contact form.

We really love this idea, and found it to be an elegant solution to providing always on-call support to customers without being distracting or getting in the way of actual gaming or betting. If you need help, it’s right there with just a quick mouse click – brilliant!

Of course, the most popular form of customer support at BetVictor (and most online gambling sites) is the Live Chat support option. This gives you the fastest way to sort out a problem or issue. It is also a great way to get an answer that isn’t covered by the FAQ page, or when you simply just don’t have the time to crawl through FAQs.

Email Support

The fastest way to get email support at BetVictor is to simply click on the email support icon. This opens up a simple and easy-to-use email contact form, and all you need to do is fill it in. The email contact form is designed to make it as easy as possible for anyone, including new players that may be unfamiliar with email contact forms, to get their message to the support guys.

All you need to do is add your email address in the space provided at the top of the form, add your subject in the next space, and your basic message in the largest space provided. The subject should relate to whatever issue you may be experiencing, as this will quickly allocate your email to the correct support department. They have also included a way to attach files, which is another great time saver. We found their response turnaround time to be excellent and had a response within an hour.

Live Chat Support

For our full-scale review of BetVictor, we naturally had a go at each of their available support options, just to make sure it wasn’t a case of style over substance. We found their Live Chat support to be absolutely outstanding. Their team is not only super friendly but also quite knowledgeable about the entire BetVictor brand. No matter the type of question we threw at them, from sports betting complexities to casino gaming conundrums, they happily (and speedily) answered them with aplomb.

Again, just as in the email option described above, after clicking on the all-encompassing support icon, getting a Live Chat going begins with simply clicking on the little ‘Chat Now’ button,. The simple interface that pops up looks rather like the email contact form. This is a great idea, as it creates a simple continuity and eliminates any potential confusion between the various support options. Once you know how to use one, you know how to use all of them.

In the case of Live Chat, simply add your username at the top (required field), then your email address (required field), and the nature of your query (payment issues, etc.). This gives the team an immediate idea of who to allocate your query or issue to, again saving a great deal of your time. We found that a support team member was always available to us within a few seconds of initiating a Live Chat session, which is an excellent level of service.

Phone Support

Here is where we felt that BetVictor came a teeny bit unstuck, since on the surface, there do not appear to be any available phone numbers listed on the site. We dug a little bit deeper and found their ‘contact us’ link at the bottom of their homepage. Aha! Eureka! We thought that their phone numbers must be listed here!

Rather curiously, this was not the case at all, as there were still no contact phone numbers to be seen anywhere. None on their homepage, none under their brilliant little support icon, and none under their actual contact page. That is a bit odd for an online sportsbook, to be sure. The only existing feature that we can say comes close to phone support is a call back button option.

If you want to speak to someone in person at BetVictor, you need to click on this button, which essentially is a request for their support team to call you at a specified time. You let them know when to call you, and they call you. We do have to say, however, that they do actually call you at that time, and the level of service is certainly on par with the rest of their high-quality support.

It is just a bit weird, though, that there are no numbers listed on their site for phone betting or anything like that.

User Interface

For many, BetVictor is the ultimate online sportsbook and casino brand, and they have an unshakeable following of loyal customers. Of course, this has a lot to do with what the brand has to offer in terms of sports betting features and opportunities, as well as casino gambling. However, we think that there is more to BetVictor than that, and there are other reasons why most people that sign up with the brand also stay with them.

There are hundreds of online sportsbooks and casino operating today, but many of them are well below the standards set by BetVictor. This may seem strange, since they obviously also offer a range of sports betting markets and/or casino gaming options.

However, gamblers are funny little creatures, and they like to be comfortable and surrounded by a familiar, friendly environment where they can get to everything they need right away. BetVictor provides this in spades with one of the very best user interfaces we have ever had the pleasure of using.

BetVictor is the epitome of elegant minimalism, with a clean, well-organized user interface that is not only great to look at, but also incredibly easy and intuitive to use. When it comes to choosing your main sportsbook or online casino, never ever underestimate the importance of looks.

Think about it. If you are fairly serious about online gambling, you will most likely spend a heck of a lot of time on the site.

Do you really want to spend hours on a site that will end up making your eyes water from a sheer glam overload or give you a headache from an overly bright or colorful background?

No, of course not! You want the interface with the eye-pleasing colors that provide a more neutral and focused background, so you can easily read or access the crucial data that you need to in order to make a great bet.

This is what BetVictor excels at creating: the ultimate online sports betting and casino gaming environment.

However, offering a clean and elegant, highly functional yet minimalist user interface is not the only area in which BetVictor shines. BetVictor is great all around in terms of layout design and accessibility. What we basically mean by this is that BetVictor is the ideal online sportsbook and casino option for every level of player.

If you are a total online casino or sportsbook newbie, and this is your first foray into online betting, we think BetVictor would be an excellent place to get your feet wet. At the same time, BetVictor offers plenty for the experienced punter in terms of functionality, features, and options. Selecting sports and betting markets is nearly effortless, and the vital listings of these markets are neat, easy to read, and easy to access (down the left-hand margin of the main page). In fact, many other online sportsbooks have actually copied the BetVictor layout for their own sports betting platforms.

Another mistake that is made all too often by sportsbooks is an overload of data and statistics, which, while it may seem like a good idea, can be too confusing and even intimidating to new bettors. BetVictor has managed to completely sidestep this common pitfall and has filtered every listing on their site. Regardless of the sports betting market that you select, you will find only the important and vital data and statistics, which provide you with everything you need to make good, solid bets.

Overall, the BetVictor site is a master class in how to create and organize an online sportsbook and casino so that your users get the very best experience possible, every time.

Aside from providing vital data and stats, BetVictor allows their users to access their personal details, user settings, payment preferences, and support instantaneously.

Their thoughtful addition of being able to set deposit limits and their ‘Reality Check’ feature is an excellent tool to help all of their players enjoy a positive online gaming/gambling experience, which proves that this brand is not about taking you for everything you’ve got.

BetVictor Basic Information

BetVictor isn’t like most of the gambling sites we review here. For example, one thing that makes them stand out is the fact that they didn’t get their start online.

No, they got their start offline.

William Chandler started Victor Chandler International Limited in 1931. The company rebranded to BetVictor Ltd when he passed in 1946. Then they changed their name to VC in 2004, Victor Chandler in 2008, and then BetVictor (again) in 2012.

The company is now owned by Michael Tabor. He’s a successful businessman and one-time BetVictor major shareholder.

It appears that Tabor’s business acumen is rubbing off on the company. They claim to turn over more than £1 billion in revenue from their 500,000+ customers.

Well done, BetVictor. Well done indeed.

Licensing and Regulation

BetVictor is registered in Gibraltar. In 1974, Victor Jr. moved the company here to avoid paying UK gambling taxes.

They have licenses and are regulated in a few jurisdictions. Those jurisdictions include the Gambling Commission of Great Britain, Ireland (Revenue Commissioners), and the Government of Gibraltar.

We didn’t find this information on their website. Most sites post this information in their terms. BetVictor doesn’t, and that sucks. They do cover other important details in their terms, though. You still should read them.

However, if you have any questions about whether you can play at BetVictor, your best bet is to reach out to their support.

The Casino

BetVictor says they have more than 700-900 casino games (depending on where you look). That’s not farfetched since they work with a large variety of software providers. Here are the software companies they work with:

  • Microgaming
  • NetEnt
  • Evolution Gaming
  • IGT (WagerWorks)
  • OpenBet
  • Ho Gaming
  • Realistic Games
  • Blueprint Gaming
  • Amaya (Chartwell)
  • Quickspin
  • Thunderkick
  • Foxium
  • Fuga Gaming

The result of working with all these top-notch software providers is a large variety of games for you to play. BetVictor covers all the bases. You’ll get to choose from a large library of online slots, table games, video poker, live dealer games, and scratch/arcade games.

What stood out most to us is that it doesn’t look like they rest on their laurels. They have a new section where you can see all the games they added to their lineup. Each post is timestamped, too. That way, you know the games they’re adding are actually new.

That said, there are a few things BetVictor can do to improve their casino. We talk about what these things are in the following sections.

We were happy with what we found overall, though. Keep reading to find out why.

Table Games

BetVictor’s table game selection isn’t impressive at first glance. They don’t have nearly the quantity or variety of games that you can find elsewhere.

We’ll explain why that is in just a minute. First, here are the games we found during our review.

  • European Roulette
  • Blackjack
  • American Roulette
  • Hi Lo Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Perfect Pairs Blackjack
  • Mini Baccarat
  • Blackjack
  • 3 Wheel Roulette
  • 20p Roulette
  • Auto Roulette

You see what we mean? It’s not a very large selection. We have a couple guesses as to why this is.

Many software providers are unable to offer their games in specific regions. One example that comes to mind is NetEnt. They don’t offer their games to Canadians.

What happens then is that the gambling site will either not show those games, or they will give you a warning that says they’re unavailable to players in your area.

We checked their table game selection from 3 countries – the United Kingdom, Canada, and Germany. We cleared our cookies before checking them from Germany, too, just to be on the safe side.

In all cases, we had the same number of games and the same variants to choose from. We also received a warning that we couldn’t play one of their roulette games. This leads us to believe that perhaps their selection is simply weak instead of it (only) depending on the user’s location.

On the plus side, the games are well done. We played a few hands of blackjack. The graphics were top-notch, and the controls were easy to use. The roulette game was the same way, though the graphics for it were more video game-like instead of realistic.

There’s nothing wrong with that, though.

As for table limits, this varies from game to game. We couldn’t find the limits for every table game, either.

We did find that one of their roulette games had a £500 straight-up max. One of their blackjack games had a £500-£2,500 max depending on which variant you played. This isn’t bad at all, and there’s a chance you’ll find higher limits than those.

Overall, BetVictor has done an okay job with their table game selection. We’d like to see more games and variety. That’d take this section to the next level.

On the bright side, if you’re okay with live dealer games, you’ll find a few games in that section that we didn’t find here. We’ll talk more about those in just a few minutes.

Video Poker

Here are the video poker games you’ll find at BetVictor.

  • Challenge Poker
  • Joker Wild
  • Jackpot Poker
  • 5 Play Draw Poker
  • All American
  • Jacks or Better
  • Deuces Wild

This, too, is a smaller selection of variants than what we were expecting. Considering all the software developers they work with, there’s no reason to have any fewer than 10 video poker titles.

We looked at this section from the same 3 countries but didn’t find any different or additional options. So, that’s not an excuse.

We thought that maybe the 5 Play Draw Poker machine might have several games to choose from within its menu. That’s been the case at other gambling sites. However, we have no idea if that’s the case here since we were told we couldn’t play their game from the locations we reviewed them from.

That’s the biggest disappointment here. On the bright side, the games we checked out looked and worked great.

The All American machine we played has modern graphics and intuitive controls. You could play for as little as £0.10 to as much as £50 per round. If you played 25 hands (the max for this machine), you could bet as much as £0.50 per hand for a total of £12.50 per round.

This machine had a neat option, too, where you could either keep your winnings or gamble them. Choose to gamble them, and you’ll play a game where you pick whether a card (that’s face down) is red or black. Get it right, and you’ll double your winnings.

All things considered, it’d be nice to see a few more options here. They do have more variants than their table game section, though, so we can’t complain too much.

Slots

Here’s a small sample of all the slots you’ll find at BetVictor.

  • Bork the Berzerker
  • 3 Genie Wishes
  • Sugar Candy
  • Caishen’s Gold
  • Diamond Strike
  • Celtic Spirit
  • Hugo Goal
  • Wolf Gold
  • Great Rhino
  • Bonanza
  • ted
  • Twin Spin
  • Inspector Gadget
  • Fat Rabbit
  • Angel Princess
  • Einstein Eureka Moments
  • Volcano Riches
  • Tiki Tumble
  • Beetle Mania Deluxe
  • Dream Date
  • Diamond Mine Megaways
  • Fruit Spin
  • The Phantom’s Curse
  • Jewels of the Dead
  • Romeo & Juliet
  • Temple of Tut
  • Twice the Money
  • The Wizard of Oz Emerald City
  • The Wild Chase
  • Playboy Gold
  • Pick a Fortune
  • Safari Spirit
  • Zeus 1000
  • El Jackpotto
  • Monopoly: On the Money
  • Gemix
  • King Tusk
  • Snow Leopard
  • Finn and the Swirly Spin
  • Pay of the Dead

This barely scrapes the surface. The quantity and variety of options that you’ll find here is the polar opposite of what you’ll find in their table game and video poker sections.

The slots that stood out the most to us are their licensed titles. These are the machines that software providers have to get permission for, as they revolve around intellectual property that other companies own.

We say this a lot in our reviews, but we can’t help ourselves. It’s just so much fun to play slot machines based on your favorite movies, video games, or TV shows.

A few examples of licensed machines from the list above include Playboy, The Wizard of Oz, and Monopoly. We’ve played variants of the latter two games in Las Vegas. Both were tons of fun. Though, no doubt part of the fun was the money we won playing them.

If licensed slots aren’t your bag, that’s okay, too – there are loads of other slots to choose from. BetVictor has it all. You can choose from progressives, 3-reel, and 5-reel classics and video slots. You can play slots with wilds, free spins, and bonus rounds. They have slots revolving around all sorts of themes, too.

Our point is this – you’re not going to have a problem finding something to play. If anything, you’re going to have a problem deciding what to play first.

We couldn’t check every slot machine – obviously – since there are so many of them. We did check the Jewels of the Dead machine, though, and found that you can bet as little as £0.20 to £25.00 per line. That means you can bet as much as £500 per round.

That’s not bad. Not bad at all.

Live Dealer Games

BetVictor offers a live dealer casino, too. Here are the games you can choose from.

  • Roulette
  • Blackjack
  • Casino Hold’em
  • Baccarat
  • Lightning Roulette
  • Speed Roulette
  • Auto Roulette
  • No Commission Baccarat
  • Three Card Poker
  • Caribbean Stud
  • Money Wheel
  • Ultimate Texas Hold’em
  • London Roulette
  • Immersive Roulette
  • French Roulette Gold

Make sure you click on one of the games from the first lobby. That will take you to the main lobby, where you can see all the games, variants, available tables, stakes, and more.

This is an excellent selection of live games. Considering how low the minimum limits are (£0.20+), this selection does help make up for BetVictor’s weaknesses in their table game section.

As for stakes, you can play for as little as £0.20 on their roulette games and £0.50 on their table games. Their max stakes vary so much. They range from £50 to £500 to as much as £10,000. It just depends on the game you play.

Their live dealer games come from Evolution Gaming, so you know they’re top-notch. When we checked them out, their stream looked great – it didn’t lag or time out.

There are plenty of features, too. For example, you can chat with the dealer, adjust the sound, bet behind other players, adjust the camera angle (game depending), and loads more.

Ultimately, live dealer players will be happy here. Players who prefer animated games will find additional options in this section if the table section doesn’t do it for them. BetVictor did a great job here.

It definitely leaves things on a positive note and boosts our overall grade for their casino.

The Sportsbook

Let’s talk about BetVictor’s sportsbook next. Here are all the sports you’ll find action on here.

  • American Football
  • Australian Rules
  • Badminton
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Cricket
  • Darts
  • Entertainment
  • Football
  • Formula 1
  • Futsal
  • Gaelic Football
  • Golf
  • Greyhounds
  • Handball
  • Horse Racing
  • Hurling
  • Ice Hockey
  • MMA/UFC
  • Motor Racing
  • Motorcycling
  • Netball
  • Politics
  • Rugby League
  • Rugby Union
  • Snooker
  • Speedway
  • Tennis
  • Virtual Sports
  • Volleyball
  • Water Polo

That’s more than 30 sports for you to bet on. There are lots of different bets you can make, too. Here are a few examples:

  • Price It Up
  • Accept Higher Odds
  • Accumulator/Fold Bet
  • Ante-Post Prices
  • 1 X 2 Bet
  • Combination Forecast
  • Correct Score Bet
  • Each Way Bet
  • Exacta/Perfecta Bet
  • First Goal Scorer
  • First Try Scorer
  • Half Time Result – 45 Minutes Bet
  • Half Time/Full Time Bet
  • Match Spread Betting
  • Minute to Win It Bet
  • Moneyline Bet
  • Multiple Bets
  • Over/Under Betting

BetVictor covers current events, too. For example, during our visit in the beginning of the summer, BetVictor had links to their World Cup action prominently displayed in their left sidebar. A few markets you could bet include outrights, matches, and top goalscorer.

Speaking of football, the website Oddschecker.com confirmed in 2015 that BetVictor offered the best odds on European league football matches the most often. This was the 5th straight year BetVictor.com had the best odds.

Soccer bettors should strongly consider opening an account here.

Live Betting and Other Options

BetVictor offers live betting. They were covering lots of sports/events during our visit. They offered live action on football (soccer), baseball, tennis, basketball, ice hockey, volleyball, and badminton.

Unfortunately, they don’t offer live streams for any of these. However, they do offer live streams for their horse- and dog-racing markets. Some sources say you need to bet at least £1 to on the races to watch them. That wasn’t our experience, though. When we reviewed them, we hadn’t yet made a deposit, yet we were able to watch a live stream.

Your mileage may vary.

As for options, you can view and bet in several different formats. That includes US odds, fractions, decimal, Indo, and Chinese.

They also have a “Cash Out” option that you can use to settle your bets before an event is finished. This gives you the opportunity to lock in a profit or minimize your losses. This feature isn’t available to live bettors, though.

Overall, we’re impressed with their sportsbook. There are a few things we’d like to see added, such as action on esports or more entertainment markets. No one’s perfect, though, and these are minor complaints in the grand scheme of things.

Banking Options

Let’s talk about banking options next.

We reviewed BetVictor primarily from the United Kingdom. From there, they accepted more than 10 payment methods. That’s more than enough. Plenty.

Bitcoin was one of those options, too, which was great to see.

Their minimum deposit limit is £5-£10 depending on the method you use. The max varies from method to method, but for credit cards, it’s £30,000, and £50,000 with Skrill. Most people should be okay with these limits.

Their cash-out limits are nearly the same. It’s a little less for options like Skrill (£32,500 instead of £50,000), but they’re still reasonable limits all things considered. The max you can cash out at one time according to their support is £50,000.

Progressive wins are paid in full to your account, too, which is a win. From there, you can cash it out as fast as your banking method (and BetVictor’s £50,000 limit) will let you.

Overall, BetVictor has done a solid job. The reports we’ve seen indicate that payments are fast, too. We’ve got nothing to complain about here.

The following two sections will show you the options you can use to fund and cash out your account.

Deposits

  • Mastercard
  • Maestro
  • Visa
  • PayPal
  • Skrill
  • Neteller
  • Skrill 1-Tap
  • Pay now
  • Paysafecard
  • Bacs
  • Bank Transfer
  • Bitcoin

Withdrawals

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Maestro
  • Bitcoin
  • Bacs
  • PayPal
  • Skrill
  • Neteller
  • Bank Transfer

One thing that surprised us is how few promotions BetVictor had running. They only have a couple of offers for both their casino and sportsbook.

However, they do have one neat offer they call The Million Pound Bet. We’ll get to that in just a second. Let’s go over their core offers first.

Casino Offers

Here are the two casino offers you can claim at BetVictor.

  • Welcome Offer – Claim this offer, make a deposit, and then wager £10 on their casino games. Do that, and BetVictor will issue a bonus to your account. Here’s what you’ll get:
  • £20 slot bonus
  • £10 table game bonus
  • £10 live casino bonus
  • £10 instant win bonus

This is a neat offer because you can taste a little bit of everything in their casino, like a buffet. There are a couple of things you’ll want to keep in mind, though.

Once you create your account, you’ll have 7 days to claim this offer. You’ll also need to wager each offer 35x-60x, depending on the bonus, before you can cash out your winnings. You’ll have 3 days to do it, too.

  • Game of the Week – Claim this offer and play their game of the week. Every £10 you wager will get you an entry into their prize drawing, where you can earn a piece (£25-£1,000) of the £5,000 cash prize. There are no limits to the number of entries you can earn.

Sports Offers

  • Run for Your Money – Place a bet on a horse race. If your horse doesn’t run, you’ll receive your money back. This includes horses that refuse to run or whip around at the start.

This is a unique offer that we haven’t seen elsewhere.

  • Acca Insurance – Place a 5+ fold football. If one leg loses, you’ll get your money back. To qualify, the combined odds must be 4/1 (5.0) or greater. There are no wager requirements on this offer. You’ll want to read their terms for all the qualifying leagues and tournaments you can bet on.

Mobile Friendliness

BetVictor offers a mobile-friendly site and native apps. Their native apps are for both their sportsbook and casino. You can download them on your Android or iOS-powered devices.

We didn’t check their apps out, though we’ve heard great things about them. Instead, we checked out their mobile-responsive site.

Their mobile casino is solid. Their games are listed in a grid format, which makes it easy to see what they are. There were dozens if not hundreds of games to choose from, depending on which section you were in.

Keep in mind that their game selection may depend on the country you’re playing from.

Their mobile sportsbook is top-notch, too. It looks like you have all the same sports, markets, and betting options from their desktop sportsbook available on your mobile device.

Going through their markets and placing our bets was simple to do, too.

Their navigation was similar if not identical to their desktop casino. It’s intuitive and easy to use. You can handle everything from your phone, too, including playing games and making bets and depositing and cashing out.

They get two thumbs up from us here.

Customer Support

Here are your options for contacting customer support.

They don’t offer phone support in that you can call them whenever you want. Instead, you contact them via their web form to let them know you’d prefer a phone call, and they’ll call you back.

This is still a huge thumbs up from us. While you may not be able to talk to them right now, it’s not as if you’re guaranteed that if you were able to call them yourself. You could wait on hold for who knows how long.

We didn’t test their phone support out during our review. We tried their email support instead. They responded in just a few hours, which is reasonable given the time difference. BetVictor was able to answer our questions on the first attempt, too.

Their support gets two thumbs up from us.

Conclusion – BetVictor.com

BetVictor has a lot going for them.

We were impressed with their overall casino selection, especially their slots and live dealer sections. Those two sections can keep you busy for as long as you want (or until your money runs out).

Their sportsbook was equally impressive. They cover lots of sports, lots of markets, and have several neat features that bettors of all backgrounds and skill levels will enjoy using.

We also liked their offers, especially the casino welcome offer. It allows you to try all their games without much risk on your part. Their Million Dollar Bet promo is cool, too.

They’re not without their weaknesses, of course. They can beef up their table and video poker section in their casino. They could also add esports to their sportsbook. More offers wouldn’t hurt, either.

That said, no gambling site is perfect. If perfection is what you’re looking for, then you’re going to be looking for a long time.

However, if very good is good enough, then you can’t go wrong with BetVictor. Create your account now and see for yourself.

BetVictor Casino and BetVictor Sports Review

The history of BetVictor goes back several decades, with the story beginning way back in 1925. The Victor Chandler Company was created in 1946 but it wasn’t until 1963 that the focus became fixed on betting and gaming, since this is the year when betting shops became legal in the UK. Fast forward to today's online betting industry and Victor Chandler changed the name to BetVictor and is now one of the largest operators in the world for sports betting and casino games.

With more than half a million players from over 160 countries, the company has certainly become a force to be reckoned with.

The BetVictor website is simple but stylish as the details are nicely polished to allow for quick navigation while maintaining a certain design that is always appealing. There are two sections where players can enjoy different online gambling opportunities.

The first is Sports and it is aimed at the bookmaker part of the company, with sports and leagues from all over the world. The second is Casino and here is where online slots, table games and other casino options from different developers come together to create a list of over 600 titles.

The impressive size of both the sportsbook and the online casino should please all bettors and there is no need to download additional applications in order to enjoy the full range of products. Everything is provided from the same site so one account can be used to bet on a sporting event one moment and then spin the reels in a slot machine in the next one.

Established in 2000, BetVictor Casino has collected quite the list of games over the years with the help of developers who added their best titles for players to enjoy. The full range can depend on the country from where the players bet since there are some restrictions based on jurisdictions.

While UK is the main market, the operator does not allow players from the U.S. to join and the same is the case for some European countries.

Software and Range of Games

The BetVictor Casino Review quickly reveals the fact that there are quite a few software providers to talk about and this is a very good sign, especially when the big ones are included. Games from NetEnt, Microgaming, IGT and Play'n GO make up most of the list since each of these brands is known for having a rich portfolio. However, the online casino doesn’t stop there and it adds more games from the likes of Amaya, NextGen Gaming, Quickspin, Evolution Gaming and some of the less-famous developers, such as Incredible Technologies, Mazooma Interactive and Realistic Games.

With such a list of brands, it is no surprise that many players consider BetVictor Casino to be the best place for slots on the internet, covering progressive jackpots, fruit machines, fresh releases and all sorts of themes.

As for the Sports page, this is where the clean layout really gets the chance to shine as everything is very nicely organized to allow punters to quickly find their preferred sport and event to place their bets. The most popular links are featured on the top but the list on the left is more than long enough to cover the big sports in the world. Football, horse racing and tennis are usually the favorites and each selected bet will appear on the slip on the right.

In-play betting is provided on the website but the design will change a bit and take a darker theme, which makes it very similar to other big online sportsbooks. In addition to the many real sports, BetVictor also offers virtual betting for horse racing, dog racing, football and more.

Getting back to the BetVictor Casino, we would like to point out the fact that although slots account for the majority of the gaming option provided, they are not the only ones. Alternatives for players who want to take a break from the spinning reels include table games, video poker and even an online poker app for playing the famous card game with players from all over the world.

A category for BetVictor Live Casino will provide players with options for betting on different games. There are actually four rooms here, each covering multiple games on several tables and with different dealers. Overall, the available options are for Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, 3 Card Poker and Casino Hold'em, although not all are available in every live casino room.

Those who dream of winning millions on the internet can make that a reality by playing at the casino online and spinning the reels of the biggest progressives. Microgaming's millionaire makers are always ready to change lives with jackpots that can go over $7 million; found in The Dark Knight and Mega Moolah slots.

BetVictor has been working on improving its mobile platform for the past few years and the recent updates have certainly moved the operator in the right direction. Right now, there are mobile apps for the sportsbook which can be downloaded for free and they are compatible with Android and iOS devices. However, the site can also work without download by simply accessing the address on a mobile browser and this makes it easier to access, while also improving compatibility with the other operating systems for smartphones and tablets.

A minimalistic approach is taken for BetVictor Mobile Sports while keeping the options just a few taps away so that users don’t ever have to miss out on a good bet.

BetVictor Mobile Casino takes a similar approach where the best way to access the games is to simply go to the website from your mobile browser. Having more options is always nice so there is an app on the Apple App Store which can work on iPhone, iPad and iPod and one on the Google Play Store for any Android mobile phone or tablet.

Quite a few of the popular slots from Microgaming and NetEnt are compatible with these devices and while the list is nowhere near as big as the one for the desktop version, the variety is good enough to keep customers engaged at any time they feel like playing slot machines, blackjack, live dealer roulette, bingo, progressives, video poker or any of the other compatible gaming options.

The main licensing jurisdiction where BetVictor operates is Gibraltar with one of the most respected regulatory bodies in the world. Having a long history in the online gambling industry and owning land-based shops throughout the UK makes the brand well established and this in turn contributes to the safety and security on which all customers can rely.

An additional license from the UK Gambling Commission allows the company to accept players from the large market.

BetVictor Sports is an authorized betting partner for horse racing and also the official betting partner of the popular Chelsea Football Club. Stamps of approval from ESSA and from IBAS show that everything is reliable when playing here.

The casino is independently audited by eCOGRA to ensure that all of the games, apart for the live dealer ones, use random number generators that meet industry standards. As for BetVictor Live Casino, the equipment used is the same as the one found in licensed brick and mortar casinos, with the roulette table being perfectly balanced and the cards being shuffled randomly by a machine every time.

The site has a secure connection when making deposits, withdrawals and when creating an account, verified by Thawte Inc. to not allow other parties to view the information. On the subjected of banking, BetVictor has a decent amount of deposit options to make payments and add money to the account. These include and are not limited to PayPal, Paysafecard, Skrill, Visa and MasterCard.

Promotions and Customer Support

Welcome Bonus

You might expect to get bonuses when joining BetVictor and the operator actually goes beyond the standard offers and makes it more rewarding to join than at most of its competitors. This is because the bonuses are bigger and they are easier to cash in. Bettors on the sportsbook and players at the online casino will get special offers when they join the respective section.

Bonuses for joining

  • Wager $10 get $50 bonus package

The welcome bonus at BetVictor Casino applies for the first deposit after players Opt In on the promotion. A wager of at least $10 has to be made to qualify and the resulting bonus funds will have to be wagered up to 60 times before being able to withdraw cash. This wagering requirement is a pretty standard rate but it has to be met within seven days of making the deposit, which makes it a bit more difficult. Most of the available slots games are eligible for making the needed bets but the other options will not help the wagering requirement that much.

Loyalty Rewards and Customer Support

BetVictor does not have a loyalty program available at this time. However, active customers can get rewards in the form of money back for football, cash bonuses every week for the casino games, free spins, prizes from giveaways and more.

For example, every Tuesday will have a Top of The Slots promotion where the top 25 players with the best winning rates and the top 25 players with the most number of rounds played in the day receive free spins for popular NetEnt games.

Wednesday is all about the Gadget Giveaway at BetVictor Casino, where players get tickets for every $10 placed in bets on the featured slots. Prizes can include Apple devices and casino bonuses.

It is important to remember to Opt In for the respective promotional offer to get the rewards.

The customer service is open 24/7 by phone, live chat and email. A Help Centre will prove to be very useful when it comes to tackling the common issues new players might face when betting online.

Conclusion

The conclusion of the BetVictor review is that the gaming site is up there with the best of them. Although the design is simple, it is easy to see that it is modern and has that elegant touch which many casinos just don’t bother with nowadays. And once we go past the styling, we find that BetVictor has a full Sports section with top coverage and a Casino page with an unbeatable collection of titles from several developers.

Where it can improve is in the promotions department since the welcome bonus is fairly small and only for slots and the following offers don’t change that very much.

FAQ

Is BetVictor Casino legit?

BetVictor is one of the biggest gambling companies in the UK so you can be sure that it is held under the microscope on a regular basis to see if it meets the stringent requirements in the country and beyond it. And it does rank very well with its licenses in Gibraltar and in the UK.

What casino variations do they offer?

The bulk of the collection is slots and this is no surprise, nor is it a bad thing. Fans enjoy having hundreds of titles to choose from in this category and BetVictor Casino meets these demands. It also doesn't ignore those who prefer table games or other options and covers them very well. Also, the sportsbook is just one click away and bets can be placed from the same account.

Do I need to download any software?

No, rather than force players to waste time installing applications, BetVictor opts for the more direct approach with its full instant play platform for the casino and the sports pages. Simply go to the site and start playing!

Do they support mobile or tablet play?

Yes, BetVictor does an outstanding job at moving its offering to mobile devices without losing any quality in the process. This is done through compatible instant games and downloadable apps for the sportsbook and the casino so that players are free to choose.

The operator accepts a long list of currencies for deposits and for placing the bets and the top choice is Pounds Sterling (GBP).

Payouts to e-wallets are very fast, instant after the pending time actually, so customers can complete the transaction in a day. However, making a withdrawal to a debit or credit card can take longer due to the more complex process with the banks and this can go up to seven working days.

Can I trial their platform for free?

If you are already on BetVictor Casino, you can click on Demo on a game to start the fun mode and try it out for free. You don't even have to register and the games keep all of their features, apart for progressive jackpots of course.

When it comes to the online gaming industry, many brands that have become iconic. Ladbrokes, William Hill, Bodog, and Coral are names we have all heard (even those of you who haven’t been working in the industry for the last 20 years).

However, only one person’s name has become synonymous with online gaming over the last two decades: Victor Chandler.

One of the pioneers of the gambling world, the Victor Chandler brand moved online in the early 2000s. Even though the name has changed to BetVictor, the company remains focused on being one of the world’s leaders in online gambling.

I am going to give you an honest review of the BetVictor site to see if the site lives up to the hype of the name.

About BetVictor

Victor Chandler started out in the land-based betting business way back in the 1940s, and over the years has expanded that empire to include several brands, as well as taking the company online. The BetVictor site has been in operation since 2000 when it was known as Victor Chandler. The site is owned and operated by BetVictor Ltd, a company with offices in the tax-friendly UK state of Gibraltar.

BetVictor has gaming licenses from the UK Gambling Commission, as well as from the Gibraltar Gaming Authority. Having these licenses ensures that the company can take players from the UK, their largest market, legally. For players, this means an added layer of security when it comes to your deposits; the site is under constant watch by these authorities and has to keep player deposits separated from the operating capital of the company.

Who Can Play at BetVictor?

Despite having one of the best-known owners in the history of the online gaming industry, global dominance is difficult for BetVictor. Their licenses prohibit them from taking players from a multitude of countries. Even though the gambling regulations are constantly changing around the world, the site needs to maintain a strong stance on this not to risk losing their all-important licenses.

Here is the list of restricted countries at BetVictor:

  • Algeria
  • Antigua and Barbuda
  • Armenia
  • Australia
  • Bangladesh
  • Barbados
  • Belgium
  • Bulgaria
  • Cameroon
  • Croatia
  • Cuba
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Estonia
  • Fiji
  • France
  • French Guiana
  • Hong Kong
  • Hungary
  • Iceland
  • Iran
  • Isle of Man
  • Israel
  • Italy

  • Monaco
  • Philippines
  • Portugal
  • Puerto Rico
  • Romania
  • Singapore
  • South Africa
  • Spain
  • Taiwan
  • Tonga
  • Turkey
  • United States

Software Suppliers

When you are one of the largest and most well-known land-based gaming brands, you want to make a splash when you enter the online market. BetVictor has done just that with their online casino; they have partnered with a large number of providers to bring you the best casino I have seen in a long while. Some players may not be able to see all the games due to restrictions put on BetVictor by their software providers, but if you are able to see them all, then you will find content from the following companies:

  • Net Entertainment
  • OpenBet
  • Evolution Gaming
  • Microgaming
  • IGT
  • Amaya Software,
  • Novomatic
  • Big Time Gaming
  • Realistic Games
  • Play’n GO
  • Quickspin
  • NextGen
  • Blueprint Gaming
  • Aristocrat
  • Leander Games
  • Ash Gaming
  • CORE Gaming
  • Extreme Live Gaming

The games at BetVictor are available via instant play, meaning you can log in and play from whatever computer you are on through the browser. Also, many of these games have been formatted for instant play on your mobile device. For those of you living in jurisdictions where online gambling is legal, you will also find a native app built for the sportsbook and casino products in the app store.

The Good Stuff

Progressive Jackpots

I always like to mention what progressives you are going to find at a casino (can you imagine there are still some casinos that don’t offer them?), and at BetVictor, you are in luck. There are several massive jackpots available to be won, and the casino puts them all in their own tab in the casino lobby, so you don’t have to hunt for them. Below are the jackpot games available. Check them out to see if you recognize any of the titles:

  • Hall of Gods
  • Mega Fortune
  • Mega Moolah
  • MegaJackpots Star Lanterns
  • Power Force Villains
  • Genie Jackpots
  • Power Force Heroes
  • Wish Upon a Jackpot
  • MegaJackpots Cleopatra
  • Super Diamond Deluxe
  • Chilli Gold 2 Stellar Jackpots
  • MegaJackpots Wolf Run
  • Cosmic Fortune
  • Speed Cash
  • Arabian nights
  • MegaJackpots Siberian Storm
  • Mega Moolah Isis
  • MegaJackpots Isle of Plenty
  • Mega Joker
  • Dragon Ship
  • Candy Bars
  • More Monkeys Stellar Jackpots
  • Riches of Ra
  • King Cashalot

Combined Platform

You can’t go wrong with a company that has built their reputation for over 70 years; the company was only a sportsbook for decades, so having that knowledge and expertise available online is a bonus for players at the BetVictor site. You will be able to have a bet on your favorite team as well as play hours of blackjack from the same account, meaning one less deposit you have to make. Combining different products under one umbrella is a way an operator can keep their players loyal. Why give you a reason to have to visit another site?

The Bad Stuff

No Esports Betting Options

This is a disturbing trend I have noticed with UK-facing sportsbooks. The esports world is blowing up, with more and more events popping up around the world. With millions of dollars on the line in each event, these are becoming heavily contested and provide a great opportunity for sportsbooks to promote gambling on each event to a younger clientele.

Many books have esports betting options, and I hope that BetVictor soon follows suit.

Sportsbook

Despite not offering any esports matches to wager on currently, the BetVictor sportsbook is one of the best I have seen in a long time. Operating on a platform they built in-house, the site gives you the chance to bet on a wide array of sports taking place around the world. Have a look at the sports available on the homepage of the sportsbook:

  • American Football
  • Australian Rules
  • Badminton
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Cricket
  • Cycling – Road
  • Darts
  • Entertainment
  • Football
  • Formula 1
  • Golf
  • Greyhounds
  • Handball
  • Horse Racing
  • Ice Hockey
  • MMA/UFC
  • Motorcycling
  • Politics
  • Rugby League
  • Rugby Union
  • Snooker
  • Table Tennis
  • Tennis
  • Virtual Sports
  • Volleyball

A couple of items of note here: first off, you can bet on many entertainment props, which are mainly focused on awards shows around the world. Also, if you don’t want to wait for actual sporting events to end, you can choose to make a bet on a virtual sport. These games, which are computer generated, take approximately 5 minutes to complete, showing you highlights in the streaming screen. You can still bet on your favorite teams, but since the action is computer-generated, you will be able to bet more often. Virtual soccer, horse racing, and tennis have become increasingly popular as betting options in the last few years.

Casino Game Selection

With all the software companies providing their content to BetVictor, it is not shocking to find out that you have access to over 1,000 games when you log into their casino. Seeing so many top software vendors in the list above means the quality of your experience is going to be top-notch. Let’s break down the different categories of games available in the casino lobby.

Slot Machines

Of the over 1,000 games available at BetVictor, the majority (over 800) are slot games. From traditional 3-reel machines to the most advanced 3D graphics and second-screen bonus levels, you are going to find all types of content in this area.

Table Games

This is the area of the site where you will notice the difference depending on where you live. I have seen the site from different countries and have noticed some of the table games not showing up depending on where I log in from. Having said that, there are a ton of great options for you at BetVictor; personally, I got to playing 3 Wheel Roulette for a long period, as the excitement of that game was awesome!

I am shocked that some table games staples like Pai Gow Poker are not available, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying out all these games:

  • Realistic Blackjack
  • European Roulette
  • 10p Roulette French
  • Standard Roulette
  • 10p Roulette
  • Roulette £1 Min
  • Premier Roulette
  • Pinball Roulette
  • 10p Blackjack
  • Blackjack £1 – £40
  • Perfect Pairs and 21+3
  • 3 Card Poker
  • Roulette French £1 Min
  • VIP Roulette
  • Single Deck Blackjack
  • Texas Hold’em Bonus
  • Euro Roulette
  • Live Blackjack
  • Blackjack £50 – £7,500

  • Double Blackjack
  • Craps
  • VIP Roulette French
  • Double Exposure Blackjack
  • Baccarat
  • Pontoon £1 – £100
  • Casino War
  • Punto Banco £100 Min
  • Red Dog

Live Dealer Games

For their live dealer offering, BetVictor uses both Evolution Gaming and Extreme Live Gaming as their software partners. Both companies offer excellent live games, and having two different studios available for players gives you the option of choosing between properties as well as what dealer you want for your game.

Live dealer games are not available for all casino games as of yet, but they continue to be developed. For now, here are your options for these games at BetVictor:

  • Baccarat
  • Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Super 6
  • Casino Hold’Em
  • Caribbean Stud Poker

Video Poker

I have reviewed many casinos that started as UK sportsbooks, and this is the area of the casino where many of them stumble. For some reason, these operators don’t realize how popular the game is (maybe it is just more popular in North America), but at least BetVictor offers a decent range of games and pay tables. Check out the options you have in the video poker tab of the casino lobby:

  • Jackpot Poker
  • Play 4 Jacks or Better
  • Jacks or Better
  • Jacks or Better 1 Hand
  • Joker Poker
  • Jacks or Better Multihand
  • Deuces Wild 1 Hand
  • Joker Wild 1 Hand
  • Ultimate X 5 Play Draw Poker
  • All American 1 Hand
  • Challenge Poker
  • Triple Play Draw Poker
  • 10 Play Draw Poker
  • 5 Play Draw Poker
  • All American Multihand
  • Deuces Wild Multihand
  • Joker Wild Multihand
  • Ultimate X 10 Play Draw Poker
  • Ultimate X Triple Play Draw

Specialty Games

At BetVictor, they call these games “instant win” games. Basically, this is an area of the casino reserved for games like scratch cards and keno that are jackpot-style games which require no effort to play. For the most part, I recommend players stay away from these games, as the odds are spectacularly against you. However, I recognize that many of my readers like these games, so here is what you can play at BetVictor:

  • Diamonds and Rubies
  • Pot Luck
  • Sunken Treasure
  • Snakes & Ladders
  • Sunset Reels
  • Shore Thing
  • Wild Safari
  • Real Dogs Bet
  • Real Horses Bet
  • Epic Gems
  • Red Card
  • Boss the Lotto
  • The Link
  • Diamond Deal
  • Spinlotto
  • Gears of Fortune
  • Golden Bonanza Keno
  • Doctor Love Scratchcard
  • Pandamania Scratchcard
  • Irish Eyes 2 Scratchard
  • Volcano Eruption scratchcard
  • Doctor Love on Vacation Scratchcard
  • Ramesses Riches Scratchcard
  • Irish Eyes Scratchcard
  • Emperors Garden Scratchcard
  • The Codfather Scratchard
  • Medusa Scratchcard
  • Foxin Wins Scratchcard
  • Big Foot Scratchcard
  • Merlins Millions Scratchcard
  • Final Score
  • Call of the Colosseum Scratchcard
  • Oil Mania Scratchcard

Promotions

The offers page of the BetVictor website displays all the available bonuses you can take advantage of, as well as an explanation of all the possibilities in front of you depending on what game you want to play. Let’s focus on a couple of excellent promotions I found:

Welcome Bonus

There are two types of welcome bonuses at BetVictor. The first is more of a sports betting promotion, encouraging you to make an initial wager. Here are the details of that promotion:

Register your free account with BetVictor, opt-in, and place your first bet of £10 or more, and as a new customer, you will be credited with:

  • £10 Sports Free Bet
  • £10 Sports Free Bet to use on In-Play events
  • £10 Sports Free Bet to use on 5 folds (and greater)
  • £10 in Casino Bonus Funds

How to claim your bonus

  • Step 1: Register your free account and opt in to this offer
  • Step 2: With your first bet, place a bet of £10 or more with odds of Evens (2.00) or greater
  • Step 3: Receive £10 in Sports Free Bets, £10 for In-Play, £10 for Accas and £10 Casino Bonus

This is an excellent way to get the ball rolling. While the initial bet has to be more of a long shot bet, you get up to 4 times the value afterward.

The second welcome bonus is more of a standard casino match bonus. This welcome bonus isn’t the largest I have seen in the industry, but it is one of the most generous when it comes to actually converting bonus dollars into cash. Here are the details:

Up to £/€100 in casino bonus funds, matching your first deposit after you opt in, which:

  • can be used on any of our games on our Casino except for Baccarat (all versions) and the Blood Suckers slot;
  • are subject to wagering requirements (see Wagering Requirements below); and
  • will expire after 7 days if not used or wagered.

100 Free spins on our Starburst slot which:

  • will be credited the day after you receive your deposit match bonus;
  • can only be used on our Starburst slot;
  • are subject to wagering requirements (see Wagering Requirements below); and
  • will expire after 5 days if not used or wagered.

What I really like about this bonus is that it isn’t maxing out at some huge number players aren’t likely going to deposit, and it’s also providing a wagering requirement (35x the bonus amount only) that is very competitive compared to other sites in the market.

Win tickets to a Liverpool FC match

This promotion is a no-brainer for the site; they are a sponsor of the team, after all. However, this promotion is extra juicy because the game they are giving away tickets for is against none other than the wildly popular Manchester United. To qualify for the draw, all you have to do is make a wager on the game, and you will be entered into the draw. If you are one of the 5 lucky winners, you will be awarded two tickets to the game, along with local transportation to and from the stadium and food and refreshments.

I love these kinds of promotions; the prize doesn’t cost the site anything at all, and players who win get an incredible amount of value out of the experience.

Banking

BetVictor offers the standard options for making your deposits and withdrawals, from credit cards to e-wallet solutions. There does not seem to be any issue with payment delays (segregated player funds helps this process), so when you are ready to withdraw, you should have your money in a matter of hours or days depending on the method selected.

Deposit Options

  • Laser
  • Maestro
  • MasterCard
  • Neteller
  • PayPal
  • Paysafecard
  • Switch
  • Telegraphic Transfer
  • Ukash
  • Visa Delta
  • Visa Electron
  • Visa
  • Western Union
  • Entropay
  • Skrill

Withdrawal Options

  • Neteller
  • Telegraphic Transfer
  • Ukash
  • Visa Delta
  • Visa Electron
  • Visa
  • Skrill

Comp Program

I have not seen any information about the comp program at BetVictor on their site. Other sites claim that they have this program, in which you earn points by playing real money games, and then you can convert these points to cash. Personally, until I see that information on the BetVictor website, I am skeptical that it actually exists.

VIP Program

There is a VIP program at BetVictor, but it is on the sportsbook side of the business. The company boasts that VIP players will be treated like royalty, with exclusive offers and invitations to events. The VIP program is by invitation only, so expect to get a call if you are a heavy gambler on the site.

Customer Service

BetVictor built its reputation on offering great games along with unparalleled customer service. As we all know, having an issue with an online gaming site can seem like a huge headache, especially when you are hundreds of miles or further away from the company. The site gives you multiple options to contact them. The easiest is to click on the live help link at the bottom of each web page. When I tested it, the agent responded in a matter of seconds, which is an excellent wait time.

You can also contact the casino via phone or email, or you can take advantage of their extensive help center, which houses the answers to many of the most common questions the casino receives.

Would I Play at BetVictor?

There is no doubt that I would recommend BetVictor to my readers. The company comes with over 70 years of experience and reputation, and their casino features over 1,000 games. They have an extensive sportsbook offering (even without esports), and the promotions they are running are very fair with regards to the ability to earn the bonus dollars. While I would like to see more effort put into a comp program and a casino VIP program, that is minor in the grand scheme of things. If you are able to access the site for real money, you should give them a try. Who knows? You could find yourself watching a Liverpool FC match live soon!

Editors Note:

This review will to cover a whole range of factors but I’d like to kick it off giving my personal experience using Betvictor.

I’ve used both the website and app to place many bets and I’ve never had a problem depositing or getting paid out on winning bets. Withdrawing back to a debit card or credit card takes slightly longer than using an e-wallet such as PayPal which can be as quick as same day payouts.

They’re also fully licensed by the UKGC meaning we’ve assigned them with the safest possible rating and we’re of the opinion that sharing banking and personal details with them is as safe as with any other trusted online merchant.

In my experience Betvictor offer better prices on top flight football than any other bookmaker, if you’re not convinced go ahead and compare them for yourself, and at 600% the current welcome bonus is about as generous as it gets.

One of only two bookmakers we’ve awarded a full 5 star rating!

New Customers only. Deposit and place a £5 qualifying bet at odds of 2.00 or greater within 7 days of opening a new account; excludes cashed out bets. Receive 2x £10 Sports/Virtual Sports Free Bets, valid on set events only at odds 2.00 or greater, expires in 7 days, plus a £10 Casino Bonus, expires in 7 days. Wager the Casino Bonus 35x to withdraw winnings. Payment Cards only. Geographical Restrictions and T&Cs Apply. Please Gamble Responsibly.

Licensing & Safety

UKGC licensed & 5 star safety

How safe is Betvictor?

10|10

  • UKGC license
  • Government of Gibraltar license
  • Long established reputation
  • Safest possible rating

Betvictor are licensed by the Government of Gibraltar Licensing Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. This means that they are able to provide online gambling legally from their base in Gibraltar around the world and to UK punters.

Being licensed by the Government of Gibraltar Licensing Authority and the UK Gambling Commission means that Betvictor must:

  • Prove they have the financial means to pay out all winning wagers placed.
  • Use a company approved by the Licensing Authority to conduct all financial transactions.
  • Produce fully audited accounts for the Licensing Authority to view and assess at the end of every financial year.
  • Be able to produce a full list of employees and their contact details upon request.
  • Meet all anti money laundering requirements put in place by the Gibraltar Licensing Authority.

How Does This Protect You?

First and foremost being licensed by the Government of Gibraltar Licensing Authority and the UK Commission means that Betvictor have two authorities to answer to. If they fail to comply with the conditions of the license with either then they’ll have it removed and they’ll no longer be able to operate.

One of the best things about companies which hold licenses from Gibraltar and the UK is that they must prove they have the means to payout on all wagers they take. You can rest assured that if you place a bet with Betvictor then you will be paid out.

They’ve got player specials, manager specials and team specials that you just won’t find anywhere else on the web. The same goes for their political section and entertainment section as well. They must have one of the biggest odds compiler teams in the industry.

In-Play Betting

Great on both mobile app & desktop

Is live betting offered?

8|10

  • Extensive in-play betting 24/7
  • Cash out your bets
  • Live streams for racing
  • Live stats & updates

Alongside their regular markets Betvictor also run an in-play section.

If you hit one of the in-play links you’ll be taken to their live suite. Across the top you’ll be able to view all the live odds and markets that are available over right now and also events that are upcoming. Scroll down a bit to drill down by different sports.

There’s also a favourites tab, above your bet slip on desktop, which allows you to star specific live events which then moves them into your favourites section. Basically this makes it really easy for you to view the markets you’re interested in quickly. If there’s an event you’re planning to wager on then stick it in this section for quick access.

When you actually select a live event, click or tap it, you’ll be taken to all the markets on offer and above that you’ll get a small live score centre where you can activate commentary if it’s available and see all significant happenings taking place (e.g. for football markets you’ll get yellow/red cards, goals, corner stats, possession and the time in the match).

At Betvictor live streaming is available for horse racing but currently that’s all that’s offered.

BetVictor Review

BetVictor is one of the largest bookmakers in the world. Their history dates back to shortly after the Second World War. The operator hasn’t missed a beat as sports betting became a global online phenomenon. The bookie was founded in 1946 by William Chandler. William Chandler was the grandfather of the company’s first chairperson, Victor Chandler. The company was originally named Victor Chandler before rebranded to BetVictor.

Chandler was a pioneer in online sports betting in many ways. In 1998, he was one of the first UK operators to move his business to Gibraltar to avoid UK gaming taxes. He began accepting wagers from Asian markets long before many other top bookmakers.

In May 2014, Michael Tabor, a businessman and large owner of Victor Chandler took over the company. He made the decision to rebrand to BetVictor. BetVictor operates all over the world. They’re one of the largest private employers in Gibraltar where they employ a staff of over 350 people. They operate in over 150 countries and have a customer base of at least a half a million.

The longtime bookmaker is licensed and regulated by the Government of Gibraltar under the Remote Gambling Commission. They also hold a license in the United Kingdom, which is authorized by the UK Gambling Commission. BetVictor operates in many grey jurisdictions. However, they offer their services throughout the world and is heavily regulated to ensure the best services for their customers.

A Personal Opinion On BetVictor Sportsbook

What We Like About BetVictor

BetVictor is always pushing new stuff and is still at the forefront when it comes to betting technology and odds alike. As far as reputation, there are few bookmakers more storied or trusted. The company has almost no blemishes on their long record. BetVictor’s overall profit margin is in the middle of the road compared to other bookmakers. Individual sports are better than others, which will be discussed below, but as a whole, their odds are mostly competitive, in both pre-match and in-play betting markets.

Withdrawal speeds are among the fastest online. BetVictor deals with customers all around the world, which makes their speeds even more impressive. The cashier operates with at least a half dozen currencies. Depositing and withdrawing, no matter where you are in the world is a painless process.

What We Don’t Like About BetVictor

One of the biggest complaints about UK-centric bookmakers is that their odds are too heavily focused on Irish and British sporting events. BetVictor falls into this category. They have fewer markets on certain sports and offer less competitive margins.

However, they still do offer an extensive selection of sports worldwide, but for most markets will be available for sports like football and tennis. Most of their promotions will also be centered on these sports as well.

If you’re interested in streaming live sports (as aspect many love to do when in-play betting) BetVictor isn’t going to offer punters much there. The only streaming options available are horse races.

BetVictor Review – Sportsbook Deposits and Withdrawals

A

Payment
Processing Grade

BetVictor does a lot of business around the world, including in Asian markets. They have a large list of currencies, including Pound Sterling, Euros, United States Dollars, Singapore Dollars, Australian Dollars, Swiss Francs, Danish Kroner, Norwegian Krone, Swedish Krone, New Zealand Dollar, Romanian New Lei and South African Rand.

All major credit and debit cards are accepted. Other options include e-wallets, such as Skrill, Neteller, and PayPal. There are a few more choices, including bank transfers or wires for large payouts.

Depositing and withdrawing at BetVictor is free for all methods. Their withdrawal speeds are among the best in the industry. E-wallet payouts are processed in 1-2 days, but in many cases are sent back to players in just a few hours. Withdrawals back to credit cards take 3-6 business days, which is quick considering how long these take to process by the credit card companies.

BetVictor Sportsbook Bonuses

BetVictor Free £25

BetVictor provides £25 free bet to all new accounts at the sportsbook. If you have previously received a bonus from BetVictor through another brand, (poker, casino, etc.), you will not be eligible for the free bet offer. All of that is required for the risk-free wager is that the selection is at evens or better. The bet must also be placed within the first 30 days of opening the account. The bonus comes with a modest 4x rollover that must be completed until a withdrawal can be requested.

However, customers who deposit using Skrill or Neteller from Ireland, Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom will not be eligible. The workaround here is simple, just use another method, such as credit or debit card on your first deposit to get the bonus.

£1 Million Pound Goal Promotion

Currently there is a £1 million pound promo that will go to whoever is able to correctly predict the First Goal Scorer and the Minute that goal is scored, in the Final match at Euro 2016. There are other great promotions like this that happen daily. BetVictor’s promotions change regularly. Currently, they have an accumulator (parlay) bonus for select sports. They also have promotions similar to Paddy Power’s ‘Money Back Specials’ on certain events. These are typically British or Irish focused.

BetVictor Cash Out Promotion

BetVictor provides players with the ability ‘Cash Out’ a portion of their pre-match wagers on football and tennis, provided the sport is available for in-play betting. The list of available Cash Out markets listed on the right. Cash Out is available when customers place win single or win accumulator wager on a Cash out an eligible market. These are designated by a gold coin icon being listed next to the market.

The Cash Out promotion is unique to BetVictor. It allows customers to lock in a profit on certain bets and gain back some of your potential losses. However, punters can do a better job hedging their wagers by using another betting exchange or live betting market, provided they the extra bankroll. They will almost certainly find lower margins elsewhere.

BetVictor Review Highlights

Interface and Betting Markets

BetVictor’s software is excellent. It’s not particularly groundbreaking visually, but it’s clean layout that is fast. Markets, promotions, from in-play betting to support are well structured. We doubt many have complaints about their software.

BetVictor’s overall odds could be considered subpar if you take away their 3% margin football and tennis markets. Without those, they would not be worth nearly as much. Nevertheless, they often have the best odds leading up to game time, particularly when it comes to Asian handicaps. Rugby, cricket, and golf markets all have excellent margins. However, smaller markets (comparatively) like basketball, ice hockey, and North American sports, such as American football, are not so great.

In-play betting markets are quite large on football, tennis and a few other sports and extremely competitive. They don’t have live betting markets for every pre-match market, but it’s close, and there are a ton of betting options in what is an excellent live betting client.

Moderate Payouts

BetVictor has only average maximum payouts compared to some of the larger bookmakers in the UK and Europe. However, they are still quite high for sports like top flight football and tennis.

They have £500k limits on the main markets for English Premier League matches, internationals, Championship 1 & 2, Scottish Premier League, Spanish La Liga, and more. However, it drops to £100,000 for most second and third level clubs, such as Bundesliga 2, Ligue 2, and all Scottish Divisions.

Other sports vary widely. Many have limits much lower than £100,000, even when it comes to traditional markets. For betting big on football tennis and in-play betting they are ideal, but not for all markets.

BetVictor Sportsbook Excellent Support

Live Chat Available

help@betvictor.com

The support staff at BetVictor is rated highly. They offer 24/7 support every day and have email, chat, and telephone options. Their extensive FAQs surrounding all of their promotions and betting markets are also extremely helpful.

Live chat responds almost instantly and is quick to solve customer issues according to players.

Elite for Football, Average for Everything Else – Summary

BetVictor should be on every punter’s list when it comes to football markets. At odds comparison sites, they often have the best price available. For everything else, they’re mostly average. Their long history in the industry, free bet offer, and quick withdrawals easily put them into the upper echelon of bookmakers worldwide. They’re on the elite level for football markets, for both pre-match and in-play odds.

Introduction

BetVictor has a long history dating back to 1931, when it was a part of the Walthamstow Stadium greyhound racing track business. 

It has operated continuously since then, most notably as Victor Chandler – named after its then owner, the grandson of founder William Chandler – before being rebranded to BetVictor in 2012. 

Since then the company has left the Chandler family, but it still enjoys an impeccable reputation within the industry and ties to high-profile sports events and teams. Currently, the bookmaker is a principal partner of Liverpool FC and has Harry Redknapp as its spokesperson. 

How has this company earned its high profile? We take a look at how easy BetVictor is to use, and how generous its sign up offers are. 

Markets available

BetVictor offers most major markets, such as football, darts, rugby union and league, horse racing, greyhounds, golf and cricket. They also have a full range of entertainment and political bets, along with popular esports series and virtual sports. 

For football games, BetVictor offer their #PriceItUp bet builder coupon. Here, you can easily combine markets such as the match result, cards, goals and corners to build an accumulator bet. 

There are also a wide range of pre-made #PriceItUp bets to browse, ranging from realistic coupons priced around evens to fanciful bets at hundreds to one. 

Like other major bookmakers, BetVictor allows you to bet both before events start and when they are in play. If you are following an event in play, the site offers a good graphic display showing what’s happening. However, outside horse racing there are very few opportunities to live-stream video of events. 

One area where BetVictor need to improve is the amount of markets they offer on individual games. While you will never be wanting for major betting markets, such as outright wins, correct scores or goals, the more niche markets where experienced gamblers tend to find value are lacking. 

There were 82 markets available with BetVictor on a Premiership match happening the day this review was written, while on bet365 there were 154. For the night’s NFL game, BetVictor offered 46 markets to bet365’s 243. 

Despite this, most of the popular markets are available on BetVictor, and if you are the kind of bettor who enjoys outright bets over deep dives into the stat sheets, then the site offers more than you could need. 

Interface

The BetVictor website is easy to navigate, with big upcoming and in-play events displayed on the home screen and the menu on the left letting you easily browse all of the sports on offer. 

There is also a dedicated in-play tab, allowing you to dive straight into the action happening now. 

Your betslip and cash out options are kept in the right-hand column on the main web page, making them easy to find and keep track of. A handy number pad pops up when you do place a bet, allowing you to either type in your bet amount, use your mouse to enter it, or use one of the small pre-set amounts. 

At times the layout could be easier to find specific events to bet on. For instance, to find forthcoming Premiership games you often have to go into the competition’s tab to find the list, rather than have them under the football tab. 

To find in-game markets you have to click on the small blue arrow to the far right of the event, rather than directly on the event itself, or scroll down until you see the option to ‘Show Full List’. 

These are tiny niggles, however, and the site is otherwise very easy to navigate once you’re accustomed to it. 

The BetVictor app, available for both iOS and Android, is superb and, if anything, upstages the website. It is easy to navigate and quick to load over both wifi and 4G, making it a great option for placing bets on the go or while relaxing with a tablet on the sofa. 

A nice feature is that the casino games are built into the BetVictor app, rather than requiring a separate casino app be downloaded to play as some bookmakers insist, meaning you can wager your free casino bonus on the go.

Licensing Information

As a leading online bookmaker, BetVictor is highly licensed and regulated.

It holds licences to operate in Great Britain from the Gambling Commission, in Ireland from the Revenue Commissioners, and worldwide from the Gibraltar Gambling Commission. 

It is also a part of a wide range of industry organisations which aim to promote safe gaming, such as the International Betting Integrity Association and GamStop. 

Summary

BetVictor are a longstanding and highly regarded member of the British sportsbook community. As such, it should come as no surprise that they offer a fantastic service. 

With their superb phone app, generous sign-up offer and emphasis on streamlined bets, they are a great starting place for those who are new to online sports betting. 

If any problems do arise, their customer service is excellent. When we approached their live chat with a query over a market they were courteous, quick to respond, and you knew you were talking to a real human being. 

More experienced online betters might find the lack of in-depth markets a hindrance, and so it is recommended to check that your preferred markets are on offer. However, the generous welcome bonus alone makes it well worth opening an account anyway to try a more outright approach. 

Overall, the site is easy to navigate and the two £10 free bets on offer for a £5 qualifying bet make BetVictor an attractive online bookmaker to explore.

The bookmaker BetVictor (Victor Chandler International Ltd.), which was founded in 1946, is something special within the world of sports betting: this business has been family run since its founding. The current CEO (Victor Chandler) is the grandson of founder William Chandler. The headquarters of this bookmaker are in Gibraltar.

The bookmaker BetVictor also has a number of sponsorships for golf, poker and snooker players to thank for its rise in popularity. As well as having good odds across a wide range of sports, the website is sleek and well designed. There is a great customer service department, offering live chat 24 hours a day, and a strong BetVictor bonus available to new players.

The results of the OpenOdds BetVictor bookmaker review:

Just one quick visit to the tidily kept BetVictor website and it is clear where the focus is, namely sports betting and in-play betting. Even in reference to mobile betting, the user is offered a corresponding app for Apple, Android, BlackBerry as well as for many other devices and operating systems, making it clear that mobile betting is an option for BetVictor’s users. Unfortunately, the first impression of the BetVictor bet portal being transparent is not the truth. Time is, unfortunately, often lost when looking for a concrete match or for a specific bet due to the sometimes haphazardly structured website. Especially when concerning the placing of sports bets and in-play bets, such issues are a major negative for the site.

This issue coupled with a few others has hindered the BetVictor rating from being higher and cost its place among the best bookmakers within the OpenOdds review. With 88 from 100 possible points, BetVictor is among the top bookmakers we’ve seen and the BetVictor bonus is worth a look. We can answer one crucial question for many sports bet fans from the start: BetVictor provides a professional service, however there are some weaknesses which are surprising for a British bookmaker.

03.Sports covered: Above average and a broad range

BetVictor's Sports Coverage8/10 Punkte

  • Focus on popular sports within Europe
  • Main focus on football
  • Almost all leagues covered
  • Other sports from afar covered to a certain degree
  • Most traditional options available

The betting product provided by BetVictor is very clearly directed to sports types popular in Europe such as football, ice hockey, tennis and basketball. These, as far as high-turnover sports are concerned, are offered under the menu item “Top Sport". As a logical consequence the bet offer for these sports types is extensive, with football being the absolute leader. The football bet offer is especially broad with a number of football leagues available. Here it is possible to place a number of special bets on many lower-division leagues as well as the more popular ones. The sports bet offer provided by BetVictor is much larger than just that mentioned above. It is also possible to bet on American sports such as American football and baseball as well as traditional British sports such as cricket, darts, golf, Rugby League and Rugby Union. The betting product from BetVictor is rounded off with sports types popular in Europe such as handball and volleyball as well as a couple of more niche sports like Gaelic Football or Aussie Rules.

04.Payment methods:Everything is great, you won’t hear it from BetVictor itself.

BetVictor's Payment Methods9/10 Punkte

05.Security:Is BetVictor Safe?

How safe is BetVictor?9/10 Punkte

  • Dedicated to responsible gambling
  • Safety protocols always under review
  • Latest encryption software used
  • No need to worry

It’s the first question any punter thinks of before joining a new site. Is BetVictor safe? All aspects of security and data protection are crucial for sports bettors, especially those in Europe. After all, numerous sportsbooks have their headquarters abroad. The sections "Responsible Gambling" and "Privacy Policy" found at BetVictor’s website are of special interest to us sports bettors. Within the menu item "Fairness", only the random generators used within the casino area are mentioned. Most of the questions concerning security and data protection are answered clearly and comprehensively and the graphical aspect is also well executed. With that said, BetVictor reviews safety protocol on a regular basis in order to guarantee the security of their users. They use the latest in encryption software and go to great lengths to protect the privacy of their customers.

06.Betting odds:If bets are planned well in advanced, then BetVictor is ideal!<

How good are BetVictor's odds?8/10 Punkte

  • The earlier a bet is placed; the better the odds
  • Good odds on sports offered
  • Football games should be bet on early
  • Bigger the game, better the early odds

At BetVictor, the following rule is good advice as far as betting odds are concerned: ‘The more important a football or sports event is and the more time there is before the start of the event, the better the odds will be from this bookmaker’. As a Champions League game day or other important game day for European football leagues gets closer, bets should be placed in advanced to get the most of out of your wagering experience. It’s likely – especially for less popular sports – the odds key will remain stable, but experienced sports bettors should not count on it. With BetVictor, it pays to plan. Take note of your expected winners as early as possible and you’ll make bigger profits. In completely marginalized sports types, the betting odds at BetVictor rank somewhat below average in a betting odds comparison.

07.User-friendliness:Very transparent and user-friendly

How easy is BetVictor to use?9/10 Punkte

  • Dated and bulky site
  • Still easy to navigate and use
  • Placing bets is easy and fast
  • App available for Android and iOS

The sometimes rather bulky and dated BetVictor website will not exactly win any design prize. The more important aspect for sports bettors, however, is user-friendliness i.e. usability. This is where BetVictor gains some ground. The website proves quick and easy-to-use for sports betting novices and new customers. The placing of bets itself is also simple, fast and should not cause anyone major problems. Almost all of the BetVictor experiences, as far as user-friendliness is concerned, were quite positive!

Additionally, if you enjoy placing bets via smartphone then you’ll be pleased with the BetVictor app. It’s a useful betting app that gives you the user friendly interface to place a high volume of bets in a short period of time. You’ll find the same look on the app and all the same great markets. You can even find promotions and bonus code on the app. Don’t let the minimal feel of BetVictor fool you, there is plenty to do and see on this site. There are plenty of markets to explore and odds to compare. Sign up offers are clearly displayed in the top left column for all new customers.

08.In-play product:The selection of in-play bets is not that large

BetVictor's Live Betting Service9/10 Punkte

  • In-play supported
  • Not many sports covered
  • Features are good but not great
  • Follow the action as it unfolds

The sports markets provided by BetVictor is pleasingly large, but the in-play product is only so-so. Here, this bookmaker needs to go the extra mile. Compared to the huge amounts of markets this bookie offers, the in-play features are good but not great. Find a variety of markets on in-play features with pretty good odds. The design of the bet variations can also use some further development. Live excitement is fine and good, but when there are only a few bet options available many experienced sports bettors would just as soon bet before the game, instead of following a game for hours and being offered limited in-play betting. This way they’ll receive a wider selection of markets with better odds. The in-play features are great if you’re in the UK, but if you’re elsewhere in the world there is no way to set your time zone, which can cause some in-play problems. All customers can, however, set their odds formats to their preference.

09.Other products: Is there a BetVictor casino site?

What else does BetVictor have to offer?9/10 Punkte

  • Casino site available for customers
  • Live casino also offered
  • Online scratch cards for a chance at a quick win
  • Dedicated poker site

Not only does BetVictor offer sports bets and in-play betting, but also some interesting additional offers. What we like best besides the casino and live casino area is that there is also an extra area for poker. BetVictor reviews agree on the high quality of these online gaming features. Online scratch cards and slots are also available to customers. It is clear that BetVictor is aware that their users do not only visit for the sports betting, which is enough in itself, but also for the online games. Visit the BetVictor live casino to play with real dealers waiting to deal you in. The casino promotions themselves make a trip to the casino page worth your time. Get a matched deposit bonus up to £200 when you sign up for the casino. The "articles" tab on the BetVictor page is an informational resource for this bookie’s customers. Find articles on everything from how to pay to how to play in an easy to read format. Here you’ll get answers to your questions as well as useful tips that will improve your overall betting strategy.

10.Bet limits:What are the BetVictor bet limits?

BetVictor's Betting Limits9/10 Punkte

  • Minimum wager limit of £0.05
  • Maximum winning capped at £500 000
  • Niche sports capped at £100 000
  • Much smaller sports capped at £25 000

The lower limit for bets at BetVictor is just £0.05 which is very novice-friendly and makes it possible to get to know the world of sports betting without putting your wallet at risk. The earning limit for individual bets is, £500,000, but in reality your payout is also restricted by the maximum payouts for each sport. In the fine print, BetVictor expresses its ability to (like so many other bookmakers) limit individual bet amounts and even entire customer accounts. If there is the wish to raise the bet limit for a specific bet, this can be approved by BetVictor in certain cases, however, in reality this is rarely done. The maximum payout for football and horse racing is £500,000 in one day. Most other sports have a maximum payout of £100,000. Some sports, like badminton, hockey or swimming has a maximum payout of £25,000.

Our Verdict of BetVictor:Decent online sportsbook

We will end this BetVictor sportsbook review by weighing up the pros and cons of the bookie. On the bright side, our BetVictor review shows that this bookie provides a safe environment for punters to enjoy their betting action. You won’t need to pay anything for BetVictor deposits & withdrawals. Also expect a comprehensive range of sports to place those bets at. You should find all the popular sports at BetVictor, and perhaps some that are less well-known. Finally, the customer service department is great, the site is user friendly and the bonus offered for new customers is worthy of some attention. However, as with all best online bookmakers there are some drawbacks to BetVictor. For example, the lack of live betting option might cause you to go elsewhere, and if you lose too much or bet too much then you’ll have restriction placed on your account. This is not ideal for professional sports bettors who are seeking high levels of action. Overall giving Betvictor a try is a good idea, if only to take advantage of the bonus package that is on offer to all new customers. Go to BetVictor and open your account

BetVictor: Opinions & Experiences of actual users

Have you given BetVictor a try? Do you think that your experiences at this bookmaker differ to what you have read in our Betvictor review above? Our BetVictor rating might not be the last word. Maybe you disagree with us concerning this bookmaker. If so, then write to us and tell us your personal BetVictor rating! For other betting fans within the OpenOdds community, your BetVictor review can be of great value when making a decision.

We know that you’re not supposed to judge a book (sportsbook) by its cover, but we’ve noticed a funny trend within the industry. Sites that have terrible looking homepages are almost always equally terrible when we open the cover and take a look at what’s inside. Sportsbooks that have beautiful looking homepages have a much higher probability of being amazing. Not always, but more often than not.

Why are we sharing this? Well, when we started our BetVictor review, the first thing we saw was a beautiful and professional looking homepage. Things were laid out clean, the graphics and text were easy for our minds and eyes to digest, and it made us feel comfortable to be there. It looked like a sportsbook and casino that someone actually took time to plan out. Too often, we see books that look like maybe they were great one day, but weren’t set up for expansion and now look like a mess. Or, they look they were never planned with the end user in mind at all.

This was not the case with BetVictor. We could quickly see that at least at the surface level, they were one of the best put together online sportsbooks and casinos that we’d seen in a long while.

But, here’s the real question. Can the realities of BetVictor live up to how pretty their “cover” is? Were the actual inner workings of the site just as good as how things appeared at first glance? This is what we set out to figure out in our BetVictor review.

In the coming sections, we’re going to take a look at all aspects of this sportsbook and what it does or does not have to offer you. We’ll look at the sportsbook as a whole, the sports you can bet on, the user interface, the casino side of the site, banking options (deposit and withdrawal), and finally the customer service options and quality at BetVictor. By the end of this BetVictor review, we hope that you’ll be able to make a decision on whether or not this is the site you want to house your action at.

The Sportsbook

There’s no reason not to start with the most important part of our BetVictor review first – the sportsbook. The sportsbook is pretty much everything we’ve ever wanted in a book all wrapped up in a nice and neat little package. Yup, the BetVictor sportsbook is that good. And just to put it to rest for those of you wondering, no, BetVictor did not pay us for this review. We cannot be paid or coerced into giving better reviews or higher recommendations. If you need further proof, check out some of our other reviews. We have literally zero problems ripping an online sportsbook to shreds no matter how big of a name they are in the industry.

Let’s talk about some major highlights of the BetVictor sportsbook, and then we’ll get into specifics in the next few sections.

First of all, you can bet on pretty much any sport under the sun. Last we checked, we counted 34 different sports and a full entertainment category with a lot of different options. Within these main sports options, you have a ton of different leagues and organizations that you can bet on. Going a step further, the types of bets offered is also extensive. They didn’t just have totals, spreads, and moneylines. If you want to see what we’re talking about, just click on a random sport and game and look at the prop bets BetVictor is offering. Extensive is an understatement.

You can literally bet on pretty much anything under the sun that you want to. All the sports, all the games, and all the bet types that you could want. The only thing missing that we would like to see them add at some point is action on esports as that is becoming pretty popular around the world. Other than that, they knocked it out of the park.

The second thing that we loved about the BetVictor sportsbook is the user interface. In fact, it was probably our favorite part of the entire review. The big question that immediately popped into our mind is why can’t other sportsbooks in the industry set up their sites this way? The sports are organized cleanly, the bets are laid out well, and the virtual betting slip is put together well. The only thing that we would like to see changed is the ability to see all game lines at once. We’ll talk about that a little more in the User Interface section below.

BetVictor also has an extensive live in-game betting section with action on a lot of different sports. Usually, we’ll see live action on the major sports, but not often on other sports. When we looked, they had live in-game betting action on football (soccer), tennis, American football, ice hockey, baseball, basketball, cricket, volleyball, squash, and golf. That’s pretty awesome if you ask us.

Overall, the betting flexibility and options, the user interface, and the site layout of BetVictor were incredible. We had to dig in order to find nitpicky things to critique.

Not only did we enjoy reviewing this site, but we think we may have found a new site that some of our staff is going to start playing at. It’s rare that you find a book that hits it out of the park on so many fronts.

One thing we do want to add is that BetVictor had a really cool bet calculator. It allows you to calculate literally any type of bet in either decimal or fraction format. It will show you your potential return, your profit, and also general information that explains the different type of bet you are working with. We’ve seen betting calculators before, but we haven’t seen one that is this clean.

But, here is the coolest part. You can actually save your bets that you put in with notes and a tally of wins and losses computed by the site. This is awesome if you like to bet live as well and want to keep a track record of those as well as any important notes to accompany them. This is a feature that some of you might not use, but it’s pretty awesome to know that it is there if you need it. We’d prefer to see you keeping your bets tracked in an Excel spreadsheet, but for those of you that aren’t that committed or computer savvy, this will work just fine.

Sports You Can Bet On

If you didn’t just skip to this section, you already know that the number of sports you can bet on at BetVictor is awesome. We last counted 34 different sports as well as an extensive entertainment section. Within each of these sports, there is an extensive breakdown of different leagues and organizations that you can choose to bet on. Additionally, they offer extensive in-game betting action not just on the major sports, but also on smaller sports.

Let’s take a look at the list of different sports that you can bet on at BetVictor.

  • American Football
  • Australian Rules
  • Badminton
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Cricket
  • Cycling – Road
  • Darts
  • Entertainment
  • Floorball
  • Football
  • Football Specials
  • Formula 1
  • Futsal
  • Gaelic Football
  • Golf
  • Greyhounds
  • Handball
  • Horse Racing
  • Hurling
  • Ice Hockey
  • MMA
  • Motor Racing
  • Politics
  • Rugby League
  • Rugby Union
  • Snooker
  • Speedway
  • Squash
  • Table Tennis
  • Tennis
  • Virtual Sports
  • Volleyball
  • Water Polo

As you can see, the list is pretty extensive. It included a few categories not related to sports as well – entertainment and politics. Within politics, they had action on UK and US elections and politics. The entertainment offerings were pretty extensive as well. It looks like BetVictor only puts up what they currently have action in, so we weren’t able to see all of the entertainment offerings. But, at the time we last updated this BetVictor review, they had action on X Factor, Strictly Come Dancing, the Oscars, BBC Sports Personality, The Turner Prize, and the RIBA Stirling Prize.

Compared to the rest of the sports betting industry, this is an impressive list. The only thing missing that we would like to see them add at some point is esports action. Other than that, though, fantastic job and some impressive betting flexibility.

The Casino

Yawn, we’re almost getting tired of typing up that BetVictor is hitting it out of the park with everything they do. Just kidding! We love our jobs, and we love when casinos and sportsbooks clearly love theirs. Let’s take a look real quick at what we liked from the casino side of things at BetVictor.

First, they had slot machines for days. We normally like to count how many they have, but we’re not sure if we have an adequate calculator to get all of these tallied up. Not only do they have a ton of slot machines, but they have a ton of branded slot machines. Branded machines are those that are from your favorite TV, movies, or entertainment. These included Game of Thrones, Wheel of Fortune, and the Playboy slot. They did also have the “knock-off” versions of some games that people actually are fans of like John Hunter and Da Vinci’s treasure (clearly a shot at Indiana Jones).

Table games were pretty standard covering all the important bases. They had blackjack, roulette, three card poker, let it ride, and baccarat. The only thing that we didn’t see was craps which was a little strange and something we’d like to see them add at some point to the mix. Sports bettors love to play craps so it would be nice to have that option available in the casino.

Regarding variations of table games, they had 17 different options when we last checked BetVictor. These included several different roulette variations (European and American) and blackjack variations. There were only one variation of Baccarat, let it ride, and three card poker.

Additionally, they have instant win games, jackpot games, and video poker machines to choose from. They also have a live dealer casino with roulette, blackjack, baccarat, Caribbean stud, 3 card poker, hold’em, and dream catcher. For those of you wondering, yes it looks like attractiveness is a hiring quality for the dealers at BetVictor. We aren’t going to complain that they give us something nice to look at when we’re playing. Also, don’t worry ladies, it was not just female dealers available. There were several male dealers that you could choose from if that is more your speed.

The limits on the live dealer games are actually a lot lower than we’re used to in the industry. Typically, you’ll find limits more in line with a brick and mortar casino because they are having to use a real dealer with a real table set up somewhere in the world. But, that’s not the case here. We saw limits that were literally under £1. Auto Roulette had a limit of £0.10. Caribbean Stud had a limit of £1. The only game with a “higher” limit was blackjack where the limits started at £5.

When we counted during our BetVictor review, there were 49 different live dealer games going to choose from. The majority of these were in blackjack, but there were plenty of options across all of the different games that they had available for you.

Here’s the bottom line with the casino. It’s clean, professional, expansive, and well put together. Normally, when you have a site that has an amazing sportsbook, the casino portion seems to be an afterthought. It’s usually clear that the company’s efforts have been focused one way or the other. But, with BetVictor, this is not the case. They seem to have put in the same amount of effort into their sportsbook as they did their casino. How much effort is that? A lot.

You’ll be extremely pleased with the casino offerings at BetVictor.

User Interface

We need a moment. A  moment to take a deep breath of satisfaction. It’s rare to find an online sportsbook with as masterful of a user interface as the one we saw at BetVictor. Okay, we’re back with you now. We know we sound like the biggest fanboys of BetVictor, but we promise you that it’s warranted. This really should be the model that all online sportsbooks should try and replicate. Let’s talk about some specifics.

The general layout of the sports betting homepage is what we’re used to. They have all of the sports you can bet on listed vertically on the left-hand side of the page, the bet choices in the middle of the page, and space for the betting slip on the right-hand side of the page. Let’s break down what we like and what we’d like to see improved for each of these sections one at a time.

On the left-hand side of the screen, you have all of the sports you can bet on listed alphabetically. We’re fans of this because too often online sportsbooks try and predict what’s the most popular and it can make it tough to find a sport if it’s not one of the top three. They do have a section above the list that shows featured links which includes major events, today’s matches, and anything that is trending popular. We did think the featured list was a little long, but it’s still a nice perk to help you find what you’re looking for.

When you click on a major sport, all of your bet options will populate into the middle of the page. One thing that we would like to see differently (and this is just a matter of personal preference) is to have the different leagues you can choose from show up in a drop-down menu on the left side of the page. The way it is now, all of the different leagues are shown in the middle of the screen, and  you have to scroll for what you’re looking for.

For example, when you click on American football, the center of the screen is populated with NFL bets. But, if you want to bet on college football, you have to scroll down past all of the NFL bets to get to them. We’d prefer to have an option to click on NFL or college football from the menu on the left side of the page. This isn’t anything major, but just something we’d like out of personal preference.

Outside of that, the bets in the center of the page are laid out extremely well. The odds are easy to read, the games are easy to see, and it’s impossible to get lost like you can at a lot of sportsbooks that offer extensive action.

One thing to point out that we initially didn’t see was that if you want to see all of the basic lines for games, just scroll past the initial listings on the center screen. In other words, let’s say you want to see all of the point spreads, moneylines, and totals for NFL games at once without having to click on each individual game. When you first see the listing of NFL games, they have a listing of each game coming up that you can click on. That takes you to every single bet offered for that particular game. But, if you just scroll a little past that listing, you will see a convenient, complete listing of all of the “basic” bets offered on these games. This is the same for all sports.

The bet slip section of the site is also well put together. We do have two things that we either missed or would like to see improved on here. First, whenever you click a bet to add to your slip, the page has to reload. It’s literally a half second reload, but it’s noticeable. Second, we couldn’t figure out for the life of us how to turn our bets into a parlay. Usually, this is an option that is readily available on the betting slip, but we didn’t see it and couldn’t find it after looking around for a while. We’re sure that they have it, but not sure where the option is.

BetVictor gives you the ability to change your odds format into the format that you prefer. As this is becoming more and more standard across the industry, it’s becoming something that is a bit of a deal breaker for us when it’s not there. BetVictor went a step above, though. Not only can you change the odds between decimal, fraction, and American odds, but they also give you the opportunity to change the odds into Indo or Chinese format. This is the first time we’ve ever seen that which is pretty awesome.

Here’s the bottom line about the user interface at BetVictor. It’s awesome. Seriously, it’s so well put together that it literally made us happy to review. We had a few nit-picky things that we’d like personally, but outside of that things were pretty close to perfect. Hats off to the development team at BetVictor for doing a phenomenal job.

Deposit Methods

When looking for deposit methods, you’ll have to go into your cashier section to see what is available in your particular area. Instead of showing you all of the options, they only show you the ones that you can actually use for your convenience.

As we can’t be in every country to test out what options are available (and they aren’t listed anywhere), we had to contact BetVictor to get a list of the methods they offer. They happily provided us with the following list of their preferred deposit methods.

  • Debit Card/Credit Card
  • Neteller
  • PayPal
  • Skrill

It sounded like from our conversation that there are other methods available in some areas, but there were the preferred methods. The best way to see what you’re able to do it to create an account an log into the banking area of the site. You’ll see a complete list of everything that you’re able to use.

Withdrawal Methods

Below, you’ll find the withdrawal options available at BetVictor. As you’ll see they have a lot of easy to use options that are all fee free. The only option where you might incur a fee is the international bank transfer option, and that fee would come from your bank. Otherwise, it’s fee free. BetVictor does go ahead and point out that there is no fee on either end for UK customers.

Overall, we’re pleased with the withdrawal methods, the no fees, and the time frames laid out by BetVictor.

Debit and Credit Cards

If you’ve made a deposit through your debit or credit card, BetVictor can credit your winnings back to your card. It usually takes 3-6 business days, and there is no fee for this. Do keep in mind that some banks don’t accept these transfers so you will need to check with your bank if there is a problem.

Skrill, PayPal, and Neteller

BetVictor processes cashouts to your e-wallet within 1-3 business days with no fee. The only stipulation here is if the e-wallet is not allowed to be used in your country. Other than that, most patrons should be able to use at least one of these options to get paid. No fee.

BACS

If you’re in the UK, you can use this option to get paid. You’ll see the funds in your account within 3-5 working days after the request is made. Keep in mind that this can only be done to a bank account in your name and you will need to fill out your banking information (obviously) to get this done. Again, no fee for this method.

Telegraphic Transfer/International Bank Transfer

Funds will be available in your account 3-10 working days after you make your withdrawal request. Your payments are going to be made in the currency of your account, and you may incur a bank charge for conversion from your bank. BetVictor does not charge fees on this method, though. They do give a chart discussing what these fees usually are and it looks to be £10 for just about every method out there. Not bad, in the grand scheme of things. If this is too much for you, you can just use one of the other methods listed above to receive your winnings.

Bonuses and Promotions

The bonuses and promotions offered at BetVictor looked to be pretty awesome and spread out across the sportsbook and the casino. They didn’t have a standard deposit match bonus like we see at a lot of online sportsbooks, but they did have their welcome offer (which only applied to the casino).

The way it works is you have to open an account, make a deposit, and wager £10 on a casino game. As soon as you do this, they say your account is credited with £50 in free bets. But, when we looked at the list of things you get, it looks like you actually get £60 in free stuff. They give you a £20 slots bonus, £10 table game bonus, £10 live casino bonus, and a £10 instant win bonus. All of these are subject to playthrough as you probably expect.

Welcome Offer

BetVictor has added a welcome promotion for the sportsbook very similar to the one listed above for the casino. If you bet £10, you get £50 in free bets to use during football season. Additionally, they’ll give you a £10 casino bonus to take advantage of as well. If you’re looking for this on the site, it’s referred to as the 6 Shooter Bonus. These funds are subject to a fairly standard 40x wagering playthrough requirement.

They also have added a similar offer for any sport within the sportsbook. Great job answering “the call” BetVictor. This one didn’t have a cool name like the 6 Shooter, but was conveniently named the “Welcome Offer.”

Let’s take a look at some of the other promotions that we saw during our most recent BetVictor review.

Season Ticket Welcome Offer

If you bet £10, you’ll get £20 and a free bet every week of the football (soccer) season. This is paid out in the form of one free £10 football bet, a £10 casino bet, and a free £1 football bet every week of the season.

Best Bet Wins

This is a really awesome promotion that even got us excited to try getting into the action. Every week they give away a share of £5,000 in prize money to the bettors who make the week’s best bet. What does that mean? It means the bettor who makes (and wins) the bet with the highest odds. The week we checked, there was someone who had won a 150 to 1 bet! 2nd place was a 91 to 1 bet and 5th was a 43 to 1 bet. Not only will you get a huge payday on your bet, but you’ll get a ton of free cash for being a rock star. For you math nuts out there, this greatly improves your odds on those wilder bets.

£50,000 Big Win Competition

This is a casino promotion where you have the ability to win a £10,000 gold bar or 999+ other real cash prizes from a single slot machine spin. Who doesn’t like the chance to win an actual gold bar?

Game of the Week

BetVictor picks a weekly casino game to be their game of the week. For every £10 you wager on this game during the week, you’ll receive an entry into a prize drawing. At the end of the week, they will draw and give away 100 different prizes. The total prize pool is £5,000, and the top prize is £1,000 in real cash. The rest of the prizes are slots bonuses that you can use to play your favorite games and “convert” into real cash.

Best Odds Guaranteed

When betting on horses, if you take the early or board price and the starting price is bigger, they’ll pay you out at that bigger starting price. This only applies to UK or Irish horse racing meetings. The maximum win that you can take advantage of daily with this promotion is £25,000. Unless you are the biggest horse racing bettor we have ever met, you’re not going to get anywhere close to this limit.

Run For Your Money

If you’re a horse racing bettor, you’re going to love this promotion. Ever bet on a race only to find your horse unwilling to leave the stalls or basically lose any chance of winning from the start? Well, if your horse does that at any UK or Irish track, you’ll get your bet refunded immediately. Basically, if your horse doesn’t at least give you a run for your money, they’re going to give you your cash back. How cool is that?

ACCA Insurance

This is another great promotion. If your 5 fold+ football bet loses by just one leg, you’ll get your bet refunded back to you as a betting ticket to place another similar bet to try and win it back. The limit on this promotion is £10 and can only contain match betting or both teams to score selections. Additionally, the combined odds must be 4 to 1(5.0) or greater. There are a few other stipulations about when and how you can use your free ticket, so make sure to read those if you’re looking to take advantage of this promotion.

Customer Service

The last thing we looked at in our BetVictor review was their customer service. To be honest, we were pretty nervous rolling into this section of our review. Why? Well, it’s because the rest of the review was so stellar and we just didn’t want them to mess it up. Silly, we know, but we like to root for online sites when they do a great job. We’re passionate about this industry, and we love it when providers get it right.

Well, BetVictor didn’t let us down. First, BetVictor had a ton of different options for us to get help. They had 24/7 chat support, email support, an extensive FAQ section, the ability to text message them your question, and the ability to put in your phone number and ask for them to call you back. The last option was pretty awesome because it means you don’t have to call in and wait in line for support. They’ll call you as soon as they are ready. This also ensures that the call will be free.

We tested out the live chat function and were able to have an agent on the line within about 1 minute. The agent was professional, spoke great English, and was helpful in getting our test question answered. Great work, Tom from BetVictor.

There’s really not much more to say about BetVictor’s customer service except that they hit it out of the park again. We hope you never have to use them because everything in your world is perfect, but rest assured that great help is there if you happen to need it.

Introduction to BetVictor Casino

The operator that has come to be known as BetVictor can trace its roots back to 1946, when it was founded by William Chandler, then owner of Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium.

Since then the company has been at the forefront of evolutions in the betting and gaming industry, from high-street shops to moving offshore and going online. 

BetVictor boasts customers in over 150 countries, but is its online casino of a calibre you would associate with such a big-time operator? Read our BetVictor Casino review to find out.

Welcome offer and bonus

BetVictor Casino’s new customer offer is one of the best around when it comes to the number of bonus funds received compared with the size of the first deposit required.

Signing up and receiving your welcome bonus takes only two minutes at BetVictor Casino. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Provide your email address, a password and your mobile number.
  2. Fill out your gender, name and date of birth.
  3. Provide your address.
  4. Select your prefered currency, whether you would like to hear about exclusive offers from BetVictor and agree to their privacy policy and their terms of conditions.
  5. You will be asked to opt in for the welcome bonus. Read the terms and conditions and opt in if you’re happy to continue.
  6. Deposit £10 using a debit card (other deposits won’t count) and wager it on any casino game except baccarat within seven days to receive your bonus. 

The BetVictor Casino welcome bonus consists of four separate bonuses for different parts of the site: a £20 slots bonus, a £20 table games bonus, a £10 live casino bonus and a £10 instant win bonus. There is also a £10 #PriceItUp Free Bet to use on the sportsbook.

Be aware that the different parts of the welcome bonus each have their own wagering requirements (the number of times you have to play through the bonus amount before you can withdraw it).

The 35x wagering requirements for the slots and instant win bonuses are fairly standard among online casinos. On the other hand, the 60x wagering requirements for the table games and live casino bonuses are towards the high end of what is out there.

Other BetVictor Casino offers

The Offers tab is well worth checking out on a regular basis, with a continuing supply of casino-related promotions alongside sportsbook offers.

Taking advantage of them is as simple as opting in to some of the promos within, with your gaming stakes then earning you a chance to win cash prizes, bonus funds, free spins and even tickets for sought-after events such as the Champions League final.

Casino games

BetVictor Casino plays host to a vast and varied vault of Casino Games staples supplemented by gaming genres that are relatively new kids on the block.

However, lovers of certain table games are better catered for than others.

There’s a gargantuan four-figure offering for slots connoisseurs and high-teens provision of blackjack and roulette game varieties, before you’ve even inspected the live casino options.

Fans of poker or baccarat games have less choice though, with only seven poker variations and a rather moderate three baccarat alternatives outside the live section.

BetVictor Casino also houses 12 virtual sports games, which range from horse and greyhound racing, to more niche elements of the computerised realm such as trotting and speedway.

Rounding out its offering there are plenty of scratchcard and instant win games and several live game shows to play.

Slots

More than a thousand slots are waiting for gamers to get to grips with at BetVictor Casino – an offering that dwarfs some of some competitors. 

Much-loved series such as Rainbow Riches are well represented, as are other well-known slots including Mega Jade and Big Kahuna. 

There’s also a selection of more hipster, pop culture-inspired slots featuring everyone from Guns N’ Roses and Jimi Hendrix and Motörhead to James Dean.

A substantial selection of Megaways machines is another boost for this part of the site with over 40 such slots available.

Blackjack

BetVictor Casino boasts more varieties of blackjack than any other table game, with 19 different offerings. 

This serves up real variety, with the full gamut of the “vingt-et-un” games available, from Classic Blackjack to more specialist variations such as Double Exposure Blackjack 3 Hand.

Roulette

There are 17 different versions of the 666 wheel to check out at BetVictor Casino and even an intriguing new 41-number, diamond-shaped version.

Buy-ins for most budgets is the name of the game, with minimum stakes as low as 10p on some offerings.

Poker

Poker fans may find that some online casinos do offer a broader variety of poker games. 

There are only seven to pick from at BetVictor and the game doesn’t warrant its own tab within the casino as it does with many rival operators.

That said there’s still room for enough variety to keep poker heads interested, with Three Card Poker, Fortune Pai Gow Poker and Jackpot Poker among those on offer.

Jackpots

There are a whole host of daily jackpot games available at BetVictor Casino with more than 30 active at the time of writing. 

A trio of different jackpots are on offer to players.

Live Casino

For such a well-known brand, BetVictor’s Live Casino is relatively minimalist in comparison to some of the industry’s other big guns.

There are four subsections – roulette, blackjack, game shows and card games – and each has at least six live rooms within. Once again, poker and baccarat fans may feel a little short-changed with only five and three options respectively within the card games section. 

However, the selection of games within each tab is well thought-out, meaning that players don’t waste time sifting through endless near-identical variations of the same game.

The croupiers and hosts are professional and polite and are evidently encouraged to express their personalities, which really enhances the live aspect of the interaction.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the game show section, where presenters tag in and out on games like Dreamcatcher keeping players entertained as they bet.

Desktop, mobile and app interface

Desktop

BetVictor Casino’s desktop site is simple to use and it’s relatively easy to navigate between different types of games you may wish to play. 

Tabs for new arrivals, slots, classic slots, live casino, tables, megaways, jackpots, daily jackpot games, virtual, instant win and drops and wins aid with navigation. 

A search option could improve the site by making it easier for players to skip straight to their favourite game. This is available in several other online casinos.

Mobile

The mobile version can best be described as a compact reproduction of the desktop site, with fewer slots and variations of games available. Its Live Casino is the exception as it hosts just as many rooms as its desktop sibling. A strong effort.

App 

The key contribution of the BetVictor Casino app, not to be confused with the generic BetVictor app, is to present the company’s casino offering without sportsbook distractions.

Its Games tab is one unique aspect, but it is a missed opportunity, doing little more than bring the user to a random trio of games or a link back to the regular casino home.

Software

BetVictor offers games from a vast range of providers including the following:

Amaya, Aristocrat, Big Time Gaming, Bluberi, Blueprint, Evolution Gaming, Games Warehouse, Genesis, Habanero Gaming, Ho Gaming, IGT, Leander, Lightning Box, Mazooma, Media Live, Microgaming, NetEnt, Novomatic, Openbet, Play ’n’ Go, Push Gaming, Quickspin, Yggdrasil, Realistic, Booming Games, Red 7 Mobile, Core Gaming, Red Tiger, Extreme Live Gaming, Reel NRG, Reflex, Aspect Gaming, Reel Play.

Deposit and withdrawal

It is important to know how you can deposit money into your betting account and how you can get money out.

Here is a breakdown of some of the most common methods they use.

BetVictor customer service

At first, the BetVictor Casino Help Centre may appear slightly underwhelming for users seeking assistance, as it contains just a couple of pages of FAQs. 

However, there are actually a diverse array of customer service and help options available at BetVictor Casino, found by clicking on the Contact Us tab on the site’s left-hand side menu.

Live chat help is available 24/7, while users can also request a callback in one of three windows starting at 9am and ending at 9pm. Customer service assistance can also be accessed via text message, email, Facebook or Twitter.

A quick survey of customer review sites online suggests the vast majority of users have had quick and positive interactions with BetVictor Customer Service.

Conclusion

BetVictor Casino has an excellent welcome offer in terms of the amount of bonus funds you get in return for a modest first deposit. However, this is balanced out by some larger than average wagering requirements on some parts of the bonus.

It’s substantial collection of games is skewed towards slots (few rivals will boast such a large selection) blackjack and roulette and it's a brilliant resource for lovers of those particular disciplines. 

Provision for devotees of other cards-based games such as poker or baccarat is less comprehensive though and if a wide variety of those particular games is vital there may be other casinos more tailored to your needs.
