BetVictor Ratings

Next stop in BetVictor review is explaining to you why these aspects got these ratings.

BetVictor Odds

BetVictor have a confident trading team that aren’t just prepared to take large bets from high-rolling customers, they are also happy to offer stand-out prices on a variety of sporting events. For example, they had been happy to lay England at 13/2 for the World Cup for several weeks. They did the same when it came to pricing up Inter to beat Bayern in the 2010 Champions League final. This is a firm that like to take a position and that will suit many customers.

The company started out by offering a horse racing and greyhound betting service. It’s no surprise to find cutting-edge prices still around on these sports. They are also good for sports like rugby union (offering 100% margin on the Six Nations), cricket, golf and snooker. It’s well worth having an account just to get access to excellent odds.

SCORE: 9 (out of 10)

BetVictor Markets

BetVictor offer a modest selection of sports. You might want to go elsewhere to bet on traditionally ‘European’ sports such as basketball, ice hockey, volleyball and handball. Soccer and tennis are where you will find the biggest depth of coverage, with this bookmaker offering ‘Midweek Enhanced Multiples’ for the former. They are also good at pricing up Next Manager markets and are very quick to release a big stash of betting opportunities.

At BetVictor, you will find that all the major European soccer leagues are covered. Roughly twenty markets are available on the big matches. There are some particularly good Asian Handicap lines available, which caters for many customers in the Far East. Players can also find many of the pre-match betting opportunities when the matches go In-Play.

SCORE: 7 (out of 10)

BetVictor Website

BetVictor website has a lovely colour scheme and the structure is very clean and simple. There are various products in a horizontal menu, including a ‘Live’ section for all BetVictor In-Play betting. There’s a nice feature on the homepage to show customers the upcoming events, something that sits nicely alongside the various horse racing meetings that happen to be taking place on that particular day.

BetVictor are keen to promote their live betting on the homepage, while there are numerous links available for customers who not only want to visit a particular event page, but also a certain market. For example during the World Cup, a bespoke microsite had been created. It was filled with content and previews relating to the tournament in addition to the vast array of betting opportunities on offer. You can also access football and racing results at the site.

SCORE: 8 (out of 10)

BetVictor In-Play Betting

In keeping with the rest of the website, the Live section is very neatly structured. BetVictor put plenty of thought into the layout of the match data and the markets. For each sport, the graphic is nicely themed and the bookmaker provides you with up-to-date information as well as nice sound effects. It’s a very dynamic offering. The odds are updating very quickly and you instantly feel part of the sporting experience as a result. Compared to other bookmakers, they are a little short on market range for soccer, but it’s an impressive product all the same.

SCORE: 8 (out of 10)

BetVictor Customer Service

Again, it’s a delight to visit a ‘Contact Us’ page and meet with the BetVictor customer service – three straightforward options:

  • Chat,
  • Email, and
  • Telephone.

In addition, there are a handful of FAQs on this page. However, the preferred way of contacting should be live chat as there are staff who become available very quickly. They are also swift when it comes to providing a solution. A 24/7 support network is offered and it’s another high-scoring section as a result.

SCORE: 8 (out of 10)

About BetVictor

Straight after the second World War, a man of name Victor Chandler founded BetVictor. Indeed, it’s very much a family business with Victor Chandler Junior continuing to help run the company from Gibraltar. Like many long-standing bookmakers, there were originally a series of betting shops and bookie pitches at racecourses and dog tracks before the move to telephone and online betting. The company now employs over 350 people which service over half a million customers based in over 160 different countries. The firm very much have a reputation for standing large bets which means that many footballers hold BetVictor accounts.

Summary of the BetVictor Review

BetVictor just need to add a few more sports and broaden their market coverage and they will be pretty flawless when it comes to being a top class bookmaker. They already have a tremendous website, a neat In-Play console, cutting-edge odds and some of the best promotions in the industry. Definitely should be on anyone’s shortlist.

OVERALL SCORE: 48 (out of 60)
