BetVictor have developed into a leading player in the gambling industry, mainly due to the depth and detail that the company has strived for in everything that they do. What’s probably been most impressive is that they underwent a seamless transition in branding from Victor Chandler to the now BetVictor and have since gone from strength to strength.
The company are based in Gibraltar and also hold license there under the Gibraltar Gambling Commission which means they can legally trade in the UK. Their license gives users the reassurance they are working with a trusted and more importantly secure brand.
Whilst the company had come from a sports betting background, like so many they have managed to adapt to betting in the 21st century and as a result include comprehensive casino, poker and games section for their punters, of which we will look at in more depth throughout this review.
Sports Betting at BetVictor
As mentioned, the sports betting side of the industry has been what BetVictor are best known for. They are up there with the best in the business for sports and cover a huge range of both sports and markets.
In more recent times the sports betting brand has gone mobile with a dedicated app that allows punters to bet on the go. Admittedly the initial trails for the BetVictor betting app were less than successful, but many upgrades and tweaks later has seen the app be something that the brand can be proud of and more importantly, extremely user friendly.
Odds and Markets
Betvictor’s biggest selling point for us has to be their pricing structure. They simply smash all other bookmakers out the park when it comes to the odds that are on offer. In fact, they are so good that they’ve won best-priced bookmaker for football betting in both 2013 and 2014.
Their market coverage is pretty good, although it’s very favourable for both football and horse racing, with other sports being left in their wake. As a UK/Euro facing bookmaker this comes as little surprise, although if you are looking to bet on sports other than these, you may be left wanting somewhat.
The live betting section of BetVictor has been one that’s been improved over the last twelve months or so. A site that is so good with its static bets, Live betting has probably admittedly been something that has let BetVictor down in the past, but no more!
The inclusion of a match centre for live bets is definitely something that has helped them take this on to the next level. It highlights latest scores, stats and is also linked into the live bets that are on offer for that game. The ability to see a real-time action shot of what’s happening in the game is a great additional feature!
BetVictor have been a little slow to implement the cash out feature on their sportsbook, but for 2015 this is now a fully functional extra that all bettors can lay their hands on. The cash out section means that you have the ability to cash out of a bet early for a guaranteed return meaning that the final result then becomes irrelevant. The downside to this is that it’s limited to only football or tennis betting, meaning other sports/markets aren’t accessible.
Acca insurance is a promotion that a lot of bookmakers tend to offer up these days, and BetVictor is no different. Basically if you place a 5-fold or greater from any Win-Draw-Win or Both Teams To Score market and just one leg of that bet lets you down, BetVictor will refund the bet up to a maximum of £25.
Whilst not a promotion, we can’t help but mention about the fact that BetVictor are so well priced for football betting. By using the bookmaker for the majority of your football bets, especially accumulator bets, you’re likely going to be getting a good percentage higher than most bookmakers meaning it’s consistently good value to do so.
Casino Games at BetVictor
The casino section of BetVictor is quite unique in that they use large number of software providers to make up their portfolio of games. Whilst most will use one, or possibly even two, BetVictor have teamed up with a reported 8 different companies to bring their customers the best games in the industry.
Software and Games
As we have already mentioned, BetVictor are using no less than 8 software providers with the biggest being that of Microgaming, NetEnt, IGT and Novoline, some of the biggest representatives in the industry.
The ability to choose between these companies means that it’s not going to be all that surprising to hear they have a catalogue of games amassing over 500 titles to play on. The games can be accessed via your desktops browser, but there is no download version to use.
The jackpot games on the casino are plentiful and as a user you will be able to access dozens from the different software providers. Some of the more popular jackpot games are Pixies of the Forest, Game of Thrones, Family Guy and The Dark Knight, where 6 and even 7 figure sums have been won.
Mobile Casino Games
The mobile app for BetVictor casino allows you to access the majority of games from the casino site. We did notice that there aren’t quite as many to choose from, but we would suggest that there must be some sort of issue with one or two of their software providers. It definitely doesn’t take away from the app, which can be downloaded on both iOS and Android devices.
You get a lot of payment methods to choose from at BetVictor with some of the more popular being in for the form of Visa, MasterCard, Debit cards, Entropay, PayPal, Paysafecard, Revolut, UKash and WebMoney. Withdrawals vary from 1-10 business days and must be used with your original payment method, unless otherwise expired.
