Free Bets on BetVictor

BetVictor is the new name of the gambling business Victor Chandler and his father have been running for more than 60 years, the company has built an impeccable reputation for integrity and has been at the forefront of the developments in remote gambling and online gaming since the early 1990s.

Our BetVictor review

Background

Victor Chandler senior began his bookmaking business in 1946 and when betting shops became legal in 1963, he started to create a chain of retail betting shops in the south-east of England.

By 1975, son Victor Chandler had taken over the reigns and still runs the business today. He established a number of high profile racecourse pitches where Victor Chandler earned the reputation of being 'The Gentleman Bookmaker'  for the civility in which he treated his customers and his willingness to accomodate big punters.

In the early 1990's Victor Chandler was taking football bets from the booming Asian betting market and seeing the potential in foreign markets, he opened an office in Antigua to allow his overseas customers to bet without having to pay UK betting tax. 

Victor Chandler launched online in 1994 and in 1996 he obtained a betting licence in Gibraltar to where he moved his whole betting operation to become the largest employer on the island with over 350 employees.

The business has continued to expand with the growth in sports betting and the huge success of his online casino and poker sites, now Victor Chandler has offices in Macau, Kuala Lumpar and Buenos Aries with gaming websites in numerous languages.

In January 2012, the company completed the rebrand to BetVictor along with the upgrade to a more modern website.

The company has over half a million customers in more than 160 countries and BetVictor can now boast turnover of over £1 Billion.

Offers and Promotions

BetVictor welcomes new customers with up to £25 Free Bet, the first bet stake will be matched, up to a maximum £25 Free Bet, when the first bet is placed on a selection at odds of at least evens (2.00) within 30 days of registering.

BetVictor continues to offer a great range of promotional offers for a number of different sports including free bet refunds, and odds bonuses and payouts on losing bets.

'Don't Hit The Bar', is one of the most popular football offers and BetVictor will refund losing stakes on football accumulators on the outright match market (home win/draw/away win) with five or more selections if you have only one losing selection on your bet.

The new Promotions page makes it easy to find all of BetVictor's sports promotions with free bet offers and bonuses available on Cricket, Darts, Football, Tennis and more.

Odds & Markets

BetVictor offer odds for more than 20 different sports as well as a good range of special and novelty bets. You'll only find a handful of websites covering more and BetVictor price up a decent amount of betting markets for each sport, covering all the popular betting options.

BetVictor maintains the tradition of being willing to take a stand on price and back its odds compilers opinions by laying its odds to good amounts. A look at the prices on odds comparison sites soon reveals that BetVictor is prepared to take an independent view of the market and offer the stand out, best odds.

BetVictor is generally among the first to offer odds for most sports betting markets (Early Prices for horse races are posted by 10am) and you will very rarely come across a betting market where BetVictor is not offering the best odds available on a number of the selections.

 

Website

The new BetVictor website is a fairly simple design, put it looks very stylish in its new white and blue theme and it is very quick to load pages. The site is easy to navigate with registration, log in and placing a bet being a very straight forward processes.

The home page gets you immediate access to BetVictor's odds for the upcoming live racing, sports and virtual events in addition to In:Play events. Odds can be displayed in Fractional, Decimal or American format.

There is audio coverage for horse racing, greyhound racing, football and other sports with live video of UK horse racing available when placing a bet of £1 or more on the race you want to watch.

BetVictor provides a useful racing video archive, access to results and an In Running diary if you want to schedule your Live Betting. What you don't get is Live Sports video streaming or a blog, features which are increasingly appearing on competitor sites.

Racing form and sports statistics could be better sign posted, the racing form is found when selecting a race and there are some football statistics within the football and racing results links.

BetVictor has a mobile version of the site which can be viewed by any internet enabled mobile phone, including touchscreen devices such as iPhone, Blackberry and Android based phones.

Reputation

The company has been operating online since the early days of internet gaming and BetVictor has carried on the impeccable reputation earned while betting at British racecourses, in high street betting shops and its telephone betting service.

The numbers speak volumes; over half a million customers and £1 billion in turnover and BetVictor is IBAS affiliated for added sense of security.

British racing journalist and TV presenter, Alistair Down, once wrote of Victor Chandler: "he is the acceptable face of bookmaking. All right, he is there to part you from your money, but you get a straight deal, a civilised relationship and a sense of humour that reminds you that this game is meant to be fun."

 

Verdict

BetVictor is a bookmaker you can trust and you can be confident you will receive top quality customer service.
