Betvictor is a bookmaker with extensive experience and was founded in Britain in 1946 by the British Victor Chandler. Betvictor was run as a family business for many decades and it was only in May 2014 that the previous main shareholder Michael Tabor completely took over the well-known and popular gaming company. In the past few years, Betvictor has repeatedly been able to demonstrate its reputation and professionalism through sponsorships with established professional clubs. Reason enough for us to conduct a detailed BetVictor test and to put the sports betting provider through its paces.
Betvictor’s head office is now in Gibraltar, where the provider has also received its high-quality EU license to offer sports betting and gambling on the Internet. As a customer, you can look forward to a great betting portfolio and outstanding betting odds at Betvictor. Especially for new customers, the bookmaker keeps very special bonus offers ready to welcome you. In addition to the sports betting and the separate live betting area, Betvictor also provides a great casino and live casino area.
The Betvictor website is very well designed and is convincing the first time you visit it. It is particularly encouraging that even newcomers should have no problem finding their way around the provider’s website. The general structure of the betting portal should be known to most sports bettors because Betvictor uses the common structure in 3 columns. At the top of the page, for example, the area of sports betting can be selected and on the left side you can then choose the sport you want. In the middle of the page the offered bets are available for selection and in the right area of the website you will find the betting slip and also information on special promotions by the bookmaker. The alternative view for live bets is also very nice!
BetVictor – registration and “my account”
This point has been one of the big criticisms of BetVictor for a very long time. Registration and management of the account were no longer up to date. The company has been able to completely change all of this in the past 12 months. In the meantime, both points have been solved as well as hardly any other provider. Everything can be found quickly and easily and is logically structured.
When you join BetVictor and make your first worth £5 bet you’ll receive £30 worth of bonuses to play with. In order to qualify, opt in to the bonus offer and make your first deposit. Note that deposits made using NETeller, PaySafe or Skrill (Moneybookers) are not eligible for the BetVictor bonus. Place your qualifying bet of £5 or more at odds of evens (2.00) or greater. Once you’ve placed this bet your account will be credited with the bonus bets. The sports bonus is split into 2 free bets of £10. Additionally you receive £10 for BetVictor’s awesome casino. We like this offer because it gives you a chance to try out different aspects of the site, and any winnings are immediately paid into your account. The £10 casino bonus must be turned over 40x and used within 7 days.
The bonus conditions are a little complicated, so make sure you check out the BetVictor website review for a run down of all of the terms, and we also recommend keeping up to date on the best free bets offers.
BetVictor betting offer – wide and good selection
Of course, the size of the betting portfolio offered also plays an important role in the assessment of a sports betting provider. Here Betvictor is convincing across the board and often provides up to 30 different sports for its customers to bet on. It is not really surprising that the British bookmaker places a very special focus on football. Here at Betvictor customers can sometimes bet from over 100 different leagues around the world.
The betting offer is particularly diverse, especially around the top European leagues in Spain, England, Germany, Italy and France. The Europa League and Champions League also get plenty of space at Betvictor. But the bookmaker also has a lot to offer for sports betting fans who don’t just want to place bets on football matches, so betting on events such as basketball, handball, tennis or motorsport is possible to include a small selection of the available sports mention.
The betting odds of the provider are of course also very important for the sports weather when choosing a suitable bookmaker. After all, you want to get the highest possible betting profit with a correct tip. The payout key is important here, so it’s good to know that Betvictor works with a high payout key of 95 percent on average. With absolute top games in football or other major events that are particularly in focus, the bookmaker from Great Britain can often even find payout rates of up to 98 percent, which is also very positive compared to the competition. We also noticed positively in the test that Betvictor usually comes out early with his betting odds.
The minimum bet at Betvictor is a very manageable 5 cents and the maximum winning limits at the provider are also very generous. The maximum winning limits for betting on games in the European top leagues are a breathtaking 500,000 euros per day. For individual sports, you can easily read the corresponding limits from the bookmaker.
Live betting has enjoyed a growing fan base in recent years and it is therefore good to know that Betvictor has its own live betting area for its customers. Here you will find a clear and graphically and technically very successful area. More importantly, there is a huge selection of live events for the provider’s customers. Most live bets are also offered at Betvictor around the many football games, but there are also numerous live bets on many other sports such as tennis, basketball, ice hockey or volleyball.
Other BetVictor products
We usually leave the other products aside, but BetVictor surprises us with perfect preparatory work. If you look at the casino, you will find almost all games that are only of interest in the beginning. There is also a selection of several live casinos, so that each region finds its suitable style. Whether Asia or Eastern and Western Europe, the croupiers are freely selectable and well trained. A really very good impression that is left here.
BetVictor Football Betting
Betvictor FootballNavigating to the Football section is very easy as you can use the link in the Popular Pages section of the site, or scroll down to the Football section in the A-Z list of All Sports on the left hand side of the screen (or use the scrolling bar on the app to find the Football section).
BetVictor runs a number of football themed promotions and offers both for a short time and also for longer periods:

Click on a competition to bring up a list of forthcoming games in it and for each of these games you will have the Match Result price shown, and next to it a box with a link to all the other betting markets available for that game. The number in this box indicating the number of betting markets available. This number usually increases the closer you get to kick off. You can use the Popular Markets section to the left of the screen to bet on some of the most popular football betting markets quickly and easily.
BetVictor Horse Racing
Betvictor Horse RacingLocating the BetVictor Horse Racing betting section is very easy, simply check down the list of sports on the left hand side of the website (or scroll the middle bar in the app) to locate the Horse Racing tab and click on it to bring up the main menu. From here you can see a list of the next few races if you want to bet on those quickly while scrolling down reveals more information on the meetings and races taking place on that day.
Clicking on the time of a race will bring up information on each of the runners in the race as well as details on each of the horses, such as its form, jockey, trainer and of course the odds. BetVictor offers a number of odds for each selection including Faller Insurance, Betting Without selected horses and Betting on whether it will finish in the first three places, as well as the standard odds. Simply click on the selected odds to add them to your bet slip and you can then place your choice of bets, including multiple selection bets, from here.
Betvictor Mobile App
BetVictor offers a choice of different ways to access their sports betting platform on a range of mobile device. You can download a ready to go app for both iOS devices (from the App Store) or Android devices (from BetVictor directly). These services have been optimised to run on these devices in particular.
Alternatively, you can access BetVictor’s mobile friendly site at www.betvictor.mobi which will instantly recognise the device and operating system you are using and format the site to suit the device you are accessing it from.
What’s good about the BetVictor Sports app?
BetVictor’s sports betting app and mobile service has always been carefully designed and thought out and it does offer mobile punters one of the simplest ways to bet on the move. The apps are regularly updated with bug fixes and improvements which helps keep them running smoothly. The variety of sporting bets and markets on offer is pretty much the same as you’ll find on the website and navigating to the specific market you want to place a bet on is quick and easy.
The odds offered from BetVictor are generally competitive with other mobile betting services and in many cases, they are better. There’s also a good number of promotions and offers available on mobile throughout the course of the year and these are easily accessible from the app.
What’s not so great about the BetVictor Sports app?
The biggest omission with the BetVictor app is that it does not offer any live streaming services to its customers. This does mean that betting in play, while available, may not be quite so easy to use as on other comparable sites that do offer live streaming services to mobile devices.
Your specific allowances will vary depending on your location and status at the casino, but for the most part if you are UK based, the table above will serve you well as a guide.
Low minimums on withdrawals and deposits, unlimited withdrawal maximums via BACS, plus the use of Paypal are a credit to BetVictor, and there are plenty of other options if you aren’t a Paypal fan as well. There doesn’t seem to be a good reason for the unusually long processing time when withdrawing using an E-wallet, but they may just be covering their backs by stating a potentially longer wait. Some of the processing times listed are a little longer than we like to see, especially when it comes to e-wallets. BetVictor claim to process withdrawals their end within 24 hours max although they aim for same day release, so maybe they are just managing expectations with these wait times. Nevertheless, everything seems to be in order here and while it isn’t their strongest area there are other bookies who fare much worse.
Cash Out is a regular sight these days, and at BetVictor it will be available only on Football, Tennis, Basketball, Horse Racing, Snooker, Badminton, Table tennis, and Volleyball markets. The Cash Out icon will clearly indicate whether or not your particular bet qualifies. In a nutshell, the feature allows you to take a profit or a loss before a bet has finished. You will be given a new price at the time you request Cash Out and this price will be based on live market odds.
You might want to use it if your selection is currently winning (and you bet on them to win) but they are starting to falter and the other team looks like scoring. You will take a smaller profit, but at least that profit is guaranteed; whereas if you wait for the game to finish, the other team could score meaning you lose your stake. You could use this the other way around too, and claw back some of your stake to reduce your loss.
If you are a BetVictor customer that has any issue to do with their account, or a bet then you need to load up the BetVictor Help Centre. The tab for this is located in the top right corner of the page next to the chosen language and the logout button. Clicking on this will open up the Help Centre and from here you can access a number of different options. The Help Centre is divided into easy to navigate sections for each BetVictor product (Sports, Casino and Poker) plus there is a General section, a Payments section and a Glossary for those hard to understand terms.
If you need to contact BetVictor for any reason pertaining to your account then you have a choice of methods available to you:
Live Chat – BetVictor offers a live chat service to customers that is available 24/7 although this uses a reactive Knowledge Base system initially to try and resolve your issue. Email – You can contact BetVictor anytime via email at [email protected] Call Back Service – You can also use the Request a Call Back Time service to request BetVictor to call you at a convenient time to resolve your issue. Simply complete the form with your number and a suitable time and BetVictor will call you back.
BetVictor’s customer support service is generally fine for resolving the vast majority of issues quickly and easily. The Live Chat service is the best option for you if you want an instant answer to any query, though it is slightly disappointing that BetVictor don’t offer a number to call for customers to contact Customer Services via phone, which is often the most convenient option for people.
