BetVictor Sportsbook Reviewed
According to its website, BetVictor, founded by William Chandler, began in a time when gambling involved pseudonyms, cloaks, and bundles of cash! They pride themselves on their history, especially how they were the first to see the benefits of the internet, and how caring they are toward their punters. The company offers sports betting, horse race betting, casino and poker, and were once the official sponsors of Nottingham Forest Football Club. Let's see if their values still remain now that they are one of the biggest sports betting companies in the world.
Overview of Markets and Bet Types
BetVictor's parent company, Victor Chandler International Limited, was a 'gentleman's' bookie through and through, with its main aims centred around horse racing and greyhound racing. The company has evolved, but this thoroughbred racing line remains. BetVictor comes out on top in the diversity and sheer number of markets on offer. You will find all the major sports, alongside loads of lesser known sports, each with their own array of markets and bets. On the football page are a selection of enhanced accumulator bets and impressive match day specials. Spincast also has a unique bet that combines the match result, over/under total goals, and the anytime goal scorer markets for one match. For horse racing, you can also Lengthen The Odds, which is an exclusive market that gives you the chance to back a horse at a better price, according to how much you think it will win by!
Bonus Offers and Promotions
BetVictor will match the value of your first bet up to a maximum of £25. The first bet must contain at least one selection with odds of 2.00 or greater, and if you don't use the bet within 30 days then it will expire. This is a rather average welcome offer, but the same can't be said for the other promotions on the website. Protect your Acca!, will refund your stake in a five-fold or upwards football bet as a free bet up to £25, or as a free bet up to £50 on tennis matches. There is a Guaranteed Run for Your Money, where your losing bet on a racing horse will be refunded, and also a Best Odds Guaranteed for all UK & Irish horse racing. Interestingly, BetVictor is also offering enhanced prices for bets you place on the mobile app, which is something other competitors are falling short on.
Live Betting and Mobile App
Available on Android, iOS, Blackberry, and Windows phones and tablets, the BetVictor app is quick and easy to navigate, with sports lined up alphabetically next to an endless selection of markets. Also available on the website, as on the app, is the results service, which allows you to check markets that have already closed, or haven't started yet. The Live Betting section can be a little confusing at times, and also offers less visual elements than other bookie in-play websites. Also, while you can live stream a huge selection of horse racing events on the website and mobile, you can't for any other sports.
Payment Methods and Info on Support
BetVictor do not offer a great selection of payment methods, only eight in fact, but they do include all the major ones. Fees are free, withdrawal processing times are between 1-5 days, deposit times are instant, and there are often no maximum limits. It's hard to find the information on payment methods, and what they offer in terms of variety is relatively minimal, though it is very easy to findways to contact BetVictor. Whether you have queries or problems, you can live chat, email, or telephone.
If you are into horse racing, or football, then BetVictor is an outstanding choice! If you are into any other sports, then BetVictor is more of an average choice, offering decent promotions, markets, and other services, and nothing more.
