Most players know the name BetVictor. Founded by Victor Chandler (who sold the company but stayed on as consultant), BetVictor has become well known within the industry for its stellar betting markets, great cashback promotions, and generous sign up bonuses.
The site also offers an online casino and, until recently, it offered poker facilities too. However, dwindling player numbers saw the company shut down the poker side of its operation, and while this was a blow for players and the company alike, the bookie has remained strong elsewhere, with thousands of players placing bets on the site each and every day.
Sign Up Bonus
Popular Offers & Features
Two of the main offers are shown below, and all players are eligible to claim them regardless of the time they’ve been registered at the site or the amount of money they stake.
BetVictor are so confident in their prices that they’re willing to put their cash on the line and operate a price matching service. They state:
“We’re so confident in our prices that we’ll pay you the difference, in CASH if your 5-Fold or above would have paid more at another bookie.”
This is a pretty ballsy move, and it shows that BetVictor really are competitive with their prices. What’s more, the fact that the price match bonus is paid in cash means there are absolutely no wagering requirements at all before you’re eligible to withdraw it. So, if you want to, you can actually just withdraw the money straight away, or place it on other bets.
That’s something you’re simply not going to see from the majority of other bookmakers.
If you’re familiar with Sky Bet’s ‘Super Six’, then you’ll already understand how BetVictor’s Golden Goal promotion works – because the two are almost identical.
All members at BetVictor can enter a free draw each week during the football season to win up to £25,000. It’s really easy to play, you just need to make a prediction on which player is going to score first in the selected game, and the minute in which it will happen.
That’s it. Pick correctly and you’ll bag yourself a tidy 25k.
Players all get one go at the promotion by default – but you can increase the number of chances you get by wagering money either in the sports book or in the online casino.
It’s possible to get up to 3 picks a week for staking just £25, and this massively increases your chances of winning. Plus, there’s no opt-in required to get the extra picks, you will be alerted when you’ve qualified so you won’t miss out.
As a free promotion, the Golden Goal offer is well-worth taking part in, so be sure to get your picks in each week before the games begin.
BetVictor’s VIP programme isn’t too well publicised, but there are three main perks offered:
Personal Account Managers
As a VIP member you’ll have access to a personal account manager who you can contact at any time about any issues you might be having, or to enquire as to whether there are any bonuses available for you. You can even chase up a withdrawal request to get it sped up.
VIP Bonuses & Promotions
As a VIP, you’ll enjoy access to a wide range of exclusive bonuses and promotions which allow you to earn prizes and gadgets, enjoy special re-load bonuses, and more. Plus, each month BetVictor reward their VIP’s with a special cash bonus. The amount isn’t publicised, but if it’s anything like their other promotions it’s likely to be decent.
Exclusive Hospitality Events
The third component of the VIP program is invitations to VIP only events. This includes things like private boxes at prestigious horse racing events throughout the country, along with tickets to other money can’t buy experiences.
While the terms of entry to BetVictor’s VIP program aren’t openly stated, it’s likely that you’ll need to be spending a sizeable sum of money at the site before you’re invited. They do state, however, that if and when you qualify you’ll be contacted by a VIP manager – so keep an eye on your emails just in case.
The BetVictor Website
BetVictor’s website is one of the freshest around today, and the way in which customers can transition from the sportsbook to the online casino is brilliant.
Below, we’re going to take a look at some of the things that really make the company stand out – in particular, the features they offer within their sports book.
The ease with which you can navigate the website is a breath of fresh air, made possible thanks to the little menu that follows you around on the left-hand side of each page.
It breaks down into three parts; Featured, Popular, and All Sports.
‘Featured’ is the specials from the day; you’ll see things like enhanced odds, price boosts, football specials and so on under this tab. There are usually only 4 or 5 events/markets listed, but some can offer pretty good bonuses/offers, so it’s well worth checking out.
Next up is the ‘Popular’ tab; this is simply a list of the 7 most popular events/markets/bets of the day, and it’s updated around midday to reflect the trends of that morning and the night before.
‘All Sports’ is by far the largest section; this is where you’ll find the complete A-Z list of sports available to bet on, and while the market choice isn’t actually as vast as you might expect, there are a ton of events to pick from – and all accessible from this one menu.
Most online bookies feature some kind of virtual sports, which are a combination of betting on actual sports and online casino games. Hundreds of pre-determined events are developed in an animated fashion, and all in high definition. If you’ve not tried them before we recommend giving them a go as they’re pretty good fun.
The reason we mention virtuals here, is because of the large number of virtual games and races available. There really is a lot of choice. and you’ll find Horse Racing, Greyhound Racing, and even virtual Football.
You can access all of the virtual matches through the ‘Virtual’ tab which comes under the main ‘Sports’ tab on the far right-hand side of the menu.
If you look to the top of your screen when logged in, you’ll see a little navigation bar to the right. Here, you can see the big blue ‘Deposit’ button, along with your name, your balance, and a ‘My Bets’ tab.
However, if you look to the left you’ll see an envelope symbol, and this is your Inbox where you will receive messages about exclusive promotions, bonuses, and exciting events.
It could easily be a bit of an irritating feature, but it’s actually incredibly useful, especially for the Golden Goal promotion we talked about earlier, as you’re notified about when to place your picks through the inbox as well.
BetVictor also offer a casino which features games from a multitude of different software providers including NetEntertainment, Microgaming, Thunderkick, and Realistic Games.
The Microgaming selection is the largest, and you’ll find titles like Immortal Romance, Dragonz, Thunderstruck, Thunderstruck II, 300 Shields, and more; and with a ton of game categories you’ll never get bored of what’s on offer.
If you want more of a realistic gaming experience, you can head into the Live Dealer Casino where you can play casino table games like Roulette and Blackjack, against a real live dealer, streamed to your computer through a high definition video link. Check it out under the ‘Casino’ tab on the top navigation menu.
Despite their size, BetVictor have opted to keep their range of deposit and withdrawal methods fairly small, and this is probably due to the fact that they primarily serve punters from the United Kingdom only. Still, you’ll likely find more than one method that works for you, including Visa and Mastercard Debit/Credit cards, Skrill, Neteller, and most impressively, PayPal.
PayPal is still a fairly rare sight at online casino’s, and that’s because PayPal are extremely strict on which merchants they allow to use their services. Gambling payment processing is so heavily restricted at PayPal now, that only a handful of online casinos and bookmakers offer it – but thankfully, BetVictor is one those that does. This allows you to enjoy fee-free deposits and withdrawals, and also offers the major advantage of crediting withdrawals to your account instantly.
Below, we’ll look at the main payment methods accepted at the site, along with their relevant minimum deposits and withdrawal limits.
|Payment method||Minimum Deposit||Minimum Withdrawal|
|VISA Debit/Credit Cards||£5||£10|
BetVictor also offer players the ability to withdraw using bank transfer or personal cheque, although the minimum limits are typically around £100 here due to the extra hassle. If you wish to withdraw via bank transfer you can do so via the Cashier, but if you need to request a cheque you’ll have to contact BetVictor through live chat or email to come to a suitable agreement.
BetVictor have been one of the leading bookmakers in the world for many years now. There site is the epitome of all that’s good in the betting industry and in terms of design, few come close. Everything about the site just oozes class, and it’s come along from its early days with their clunky, hard to navigate sportsbook. One thing that is particularly impressive with a site that looks so good and includes so many graphics is its load times. We have experience next to no lag with any of the outer or inner betting markets making it extremely easy to flick between each market.
BetVictor have made name for themselves within the industry by consistently offering better odds than many of its rival bookmakers. We feel that this is a feature in itself and allows people who bet there to be safe in the knowledge that they are getting the best – or very close – odds going. We live in a world where there is so much variety for gamblers out there and it’s easy to jump around to find the best price, but ideally everyone would like one place where they can consistency get the best prices and BetVictor isn’t far off that.
One thing we love about the site is the depth of markets. The numbers are staggering on some events with over 100 on offer, but it’s the range that we like as well. They throw ‘curveball’ markets, for want of a better word, and by this we mean things that maybe you don’t see at other bookmakers and possibly never even thought of, but actually are a really good bet. They provide tons of betting specials as well such as enhanced trebles or money back guarantees on popular markets as well.
There mobile betting app is one of the latest brilliant additions to the BetVictor family. It’s literally a scaled down version –in size, not content – of their current site and works with pretty much all smartphone and tablets. The app even integrates its casino section meaning you not only bet on sports, but play roulette, slots, blackjack and loads more casino games.
It’s easy to see why BetVictor have become so popular in the gambling industry. Looking through their site and trying to pick faults is very tough, and to be honest we didn’t find anything negative that was worth writing about. The site continues to go from strength to strength and with the addition of their betting app they are without doubt one of, if not the, best sports book in the world.
