BetVictor are a rebranding of Victor Chandler, a UK business dating back to 1946. BetVictor is part of The Chandler Group which currently turns over in excess of £1 billion a year and has more than half a million customers worldwide. Some time ago, the group was completely sold to Michael Tabor, the UK radio billionaire, but before this, it was a great and rare exception where the owner still stands for the quality of the product. Betvictors approach is to dominate through an aggressive and strong bookmaker offer, which mean: a lot of markets, high limits and aggressive odds!

BetVictor take pride in providing some of the most competitive odds in the market place. Enhanced Odds, or “Bet Boosts”, are regularly offered on the day’s biggest sporting events with Cash Back and Free Bet specials. These usually apply to Soccer matches, typically on the First Goal Scorer market. Other offers include a 10% bonus on NFL parlays and stakes refunded on losing 5-fold accumulators with only one losing team.
The promotions are also including the amazing Instabet app, a separate app where you get very time limited offers including enhanced odds. You have to react fast, but the offers are great!
Here's a list of some of their main promotions:
The bookie now guarantees the biggest returns on your football accumulators. Every football match betting coupon of 5 fold (or above) you place with BetVictor qualifies for their Price Promise. That means if one of their main competitors would have paid more for the same bet, Victor will automatically pay you the difference in cash.
Victor is now giving you some free insurance on your 5 fold (or above) accas. How does it work? If one leg of your Match Betting or Both Teams To Score football acca lets you down, the bookie will automatically refund your stake as a Free Bet.
BetVictor Cash Out
You already know this feature from bet365 or Ladbrokes? BetVictor now allows you to cash out on your bets. You can settle your bets when you think the time is right. You can cash out on your mutliple bets when you are not sure if the remaining events will go in. You can also cash out on your single bets for example when you find out the key striker is out from the game.
Horse Racing – Traditionally good
BetVictor, along with most of the other leading bookmakers, now guarantee the best odds on all UK and Irish horse racing. This means that, should you take an early price with BetVictor and the SP return is bigger, you will be paid out at the higher odds. Not only this, but if you place a bet of just £1 you can watch that race live via the BetVictor website. They have rights to both ATR and RUK races, unlike many of their industry rivals, so if you bet with BetVictor you won't miss any of the horse racing action.
BetVictor offer a decent range of options for horse racing punters to choose from. You can bet on all the usual markets like win, each way and place only, and you they also offer odds on most races ‘without the favourite'. If forecasts or tricasts are your thing, BetVictor has you covered, and if match bets are more up your street BetVictor offer match betting markets on every single race. Unfortunately, BetVictor have no affiliation with the Tote, so there is no way you can do placepots or jackpots.
However, overall the BetVictor horse racing coverage is pretty good. They have a solid reputation in the industry, their early prices are competitive and you can get a decent sized bet on too. The lack of placepot and jackpot betting is an obvious drawback, but as regards everything else, BetVictor is up there with the very best.
Football – Very strong!
BetVictor’s football coverage is widely recognised as being among the best in the business. They have frequently offered better prices and more betting options on the sport than most of their rivals. Many punters regard BetVictor as the number one site for Premier League, Championship, Champions League, FA Cup and Europa League betting. BetVictor has been awarded four years in a row for the best football odds in the market.
The impressive range of markets offered by BetVictor for the biggest games is the reason why they have earned such a stellar reputation for betting on football. For the big Premier League and Champions League matches they offer almost 100 different markets, and their prices are nearly always more generous than their industry rivals. Another neat feature is their ‘football specials' page, and here you can find all the latest enhancements and promotions, as well as player and manager specials like ‘Next club' or ‘sack race' odds.
If you place a football accumulator bet of five or more matches and only one team lets you down, BetVictor will credit you with a free bet up to £25. When it comes to football, BetVictor hits the target every time.
Tennis Betting – Game Set And Match
BetVictor pride themselves on the range and depth of markets they offer on tennis. They cover all the big tours, including ATP, WTA, ITF and Challenger. Tennis enthusiasts can bet pre match or in play, and there are up to 10 markets to choose from pre match. You can bet on all the usual outright markets, as well as on correct score, will a player win a set and odd/even amount of games.
The In-play offering is decent too, and there are usually at least five different options available to bet on once a match gets under way. The odds are updated regularly, and you can get your money on quickly before the prices change. A handy scoreboard and rolling commentary at the top of the in play betting page keeps you up to date on how your bet is going, and for tennis betting BetVictor is worth checking out.
Other betting markets
As well as their extensive football and horse racing coverage, BetVictor covers everything from golf to the NFL. They provide a good live betting service on site along with Asian Handicap football odds. Other sports include; Rugby League, Rugby Union, Darts, Cricket, Baseball, Basketball, Formula 1 and Handball.
Website – Easy and clean
The BetVictor website is very clearly laid out and easy to navigate. The familiar drop-down menu for different sports that is favoured by most bookmakers greets you on the main page along with live events in the central panel.
If your main focus is on horse racing, simply click the link in “Top Sports” to bring up the racing pages. This takes you directly to the day’s race meetings and you are only a click away from the Timeform Race Overview.
This provides you with a quick assessment of the leading candidates and you simply scroll down to the full list of runners and riders. There are Timeform star ratings for every runner and form for their last four races. As with all of the leading sports sites, the bet slip is displayed at the top right-hand corner of your page. You can also click the “Use Promo Cash” button if you have any outstanding free bets. The day’s results are also easily accessible.
If you are more interested in football, the link is the first one under “Top Sports” and also below the new customer offers banner near the top of the page. One click and you are immediately given the day’s “Bet Boost” offers. These are the specially enhanced prices for the up-coming matches.
There is so much football covered on the Internet now that there is always a game going on somewhere! BetVictor have a pretty good chance of finding the match you are seeking with all of the top European leagues covered along with many of those from around the world. Each match is displayed with the WIN/DRAW/WIN prices and the number of other markets available, in some cases as many as a hundred!
BetVictor account and rules
BetVictor's minimum stake is £1 for single bets and 5 pence for multiple bets. The maximum online payout per customer, per day is £100,000, considerably higher than some of their rivals.
The biggest improvement in the last 12 months was a completely overhauled “my account” section that went from nightmare to “greatness”. The only issue we had is: we would like to see more subcategories to navigate easier sometimes.
The latest improvement for the BetVictor offering is a self-developed Cash-Out option. It allows to get your winnings from a bet before the game ends. It's now live on a few betting markets including 1X2, under/over goals and goalscorers but it will be rolled out wider in the coming weeks.
BetVictor Mobile and Apps
The mobile betting application is available from the iPhone AppStore and the Google PlayStore. It can be used with iPod touch, iPad, iPad Mini, all Android mobile and tablets as well as Blackberry, Playbook and other Nokia and Sony Ericcson devices. The app has all of the features of the website including live betting on thousands of events worldwide. The mobile site itself is great, too.
What we see here is the advantage of having the whole mobile development inhouse and not with a 3rd party. Yes, it takes some time, but BetVictor now has not only a great mobile app for smartphone, they also have a fantastic offer for tablet devices!
Mobile users will also receive exclusive enhanced prices on major sporting events and you can watch live on your mobile by placing a bet of just £1.
Casino and Poker at BetVictor
BetVictor also offers a casino and a poker product. The poker product is just average from Microgaming, but the casino product is one of the nicest we see in the business. A huge range of games and a great site when it comes to search, sorting, overview etc.
With the newest welcome offer you will have it easy to test their casino. After placing your first sports bet, you will receive cash to play on casino.

BetVictor Review Summary
With nearly 70 years in the business, BetVictor is a name that you can trust for your online betting. Their total commitment to offering the best prices on football markets make them an essential part of the soccer fan’s sporting portfolio.
Their introductory offer is modest by current standards but they make up for this in the overall value that they provide. Their bonus offers are good and they operate to one of the lowest profit margins on football among the top bookmakers.
We are slightly less taken with the horse racing section which provides only basic information via the Timeform link. That won’t concern those punters who prefer to do their research elsewhere but it falls some way short of having everything you need on the one site.
Overall, a trustworthy and good value bookmaker and top of the pile in football betting!
