BetVictor (formerly known as Victor Chandler) has been in business since 1946 and is arguably the most reputable of all the online bookmakers. Victor Chandler himself, the company chairman, is known for his integrity and is often nicknamed “The Gentleman Bookmaker”.
The range of sports offered by BetVictor is no better or worse than its rival bookmakers, but they often lack depth of coverage on specific events and can sometimes lack variety. The main focus of the BetVictor online sportsbook is primarily horse racing.
Product Range Rating: 3 / 5
BetVictor’s customer service is of the highest quality. The website features an extensive FAQ section, but also has a Live Chat service to deal with anything not covered on the website. BetVictor are probably the best bookmaker around at dealing with non-English language queries too, offering a wide range of linguistic options.
Support Rating: 5 / 5
BetVictor’s sign up bonus is generally below average, but they definitely make up for it in other areas. The regular “Beat Victor” competitions offer customers lots of opportunities to use their knowledge to win free bets, the football prices are some of the most generous offered by online bookmakers and there are plenty of regular money back specials and other promotions.
Bonuses Rating: 4 / 5
The design of the BetVictor website is excellent, packed with plenty of features such as live commentaries and streaming for both football and horse racing, as well as plenty of live betting and mobile support, but with a smart layout that is very easy to navigate and isn’t too overcrowded. BetVictor also supports a wide range of languages and currencies. The recent addition of the live streaming service on mobile devices, which includes making live horse racing available via At the Races, ensures top marks for the firm in this category
Technology Rating: 5 / 5
BetVictor are generally very competitive in terms of odds, and they operate with a relatively low margin compared to their rivals, which always helps. They have also made a big effort to ensure they are best price in Premier League games over the past two seasons – anyone betting regularly in England’s top flight will have noticed BetVictor heading the market and much of their recent marketing highlights this strength.
All things considered, BetVictor makes for an excellent addition to your sports betting portfolio, particularly if you like to bet on football, as their prices are often hard to beat and there are always plenty of special offers on the go.
