Like many online sportsbooks, BetVictor has a rich history that dates back decades. The origins date back to William Chandler who began his own bookmaking business and bought Walthamstow Stadium in 1931. The bookmaking business passed down through the Chandler family, with William’s son Victor Chandler taking charge and rebranding to BetVictor in 2012. The company signed a partnership deal with Liverpool FC in 2016, though the deal expired in 2019, just before the club wrestled the Premier League from Manchester City but in time to see it lift the Champions League. In 2020 BetVictor signed a shirt sponsorship deal with Fulham as they earned promotion to the Premier League.

30+ global sports to choose from
Alongside partnership deals with footballing giants, BetVictor also sponsors some major horse races in the UK calendar, including a three year deal to sponsor the Cheltenham Gold Cup, one of the most followed – and bet on – horse races in the world. During the festival racegoers are reminded of the sponsorship thanks to BetVictor’s logo adorning the ITV blimp that floats above the course for TV coverage. The horse racing sponsorship shows BetVictor’s commitment to horse racing, backed up by the company’s regular extra place races and bet boost offers for racing meets for the biggest races in the US like the Kentucky Derby and across the UK and Europe.
BetVictor isn’t just about horse racing and sponsorship, though. It offers competitive odds for Premier League football, but also has odds and markets for football around the world. BetVictor’s BetBuilder feature is one of the best out there, allowing you to choose from scores of options for match result, teams to score, goals, halves, corners and cards. The BetBuilder can be used across hundreds of territories, and can also be used on NBA BAsketball games with as many features. Throw in as many sports as you care to think of and you are looking at one heck of an online sports betting enterprise.
Bonuses and Promotions
Many sports betting operators offer free bet welcome offers when you place a qualifying bet, and BetVictor’s is one of the easiest to nab with its Bet £5 Get £30 sign up bonus. A few points to note with this offer. First is that only £20 is credited as sports bets, with the remaining £10 set to spend at BetVictor’s online casino. The sports bets don’t require any wagering, but the casino bonus requires x35 wagered before withdrawal. All bonuses must be claimed and used within 7 days before expiry, and the qualifying bet must have odds of at least EVENS (2.0).
Thanks to its ties with Fulham FC BetVictor awards £2 free bets to its customers when Fulham win. However, Opt In is required and requires a qualifying bet of £1 in order to qualify. While £2 free bets might not set your world alight, BetVictor’s Flashback Cashback promotion is sure to do just that if you are a regular horse racing punter. BetVictor refunds up to £25 stakes on selected heavily fancied horses that fail to live up to their top billing. BetVictor also offers Best Odds Guaranteed at any UK or Irish horse racing or greyhound meeting on bets placed after 9am on the day of the race, while its Acca Insurance sees your stake refunded if one leg of a 5-leg-plus acca lets you down.
Yes. Most online sportsbooks worth their salt offer their own apps, and BetVictor is no slouch when it comes to technological developments and improvements. Its app lets you access all of the features that you can on its website, including its online casino games and the BetBuilder.
You can split your BetVictor sports welcome bonus into as many bets as you like. However, as with most bonus funds the stakes are not returned as they are for regular bets. For example, when betting £1 on a 10/1 (11.0) selection using regular funds a success would return £11 (your winnings plus your stake). But using bonus funds your return would be £10, as your bonus stake is not returned.
Yes. BetVictor offers the most points of contact of any online bookmaker. You can contact BetVictor customer services through 24/7 Live Chat, message form, Facebook page, Twitter, text or you can even request a callback to save you hanging around in lengthy phone queues. Or you can simply search for your query in its Help Centre. All of these methods of contact are listed and accessed via BetVictor’s Contact Us page.
You can make deposits and withdrawals using all of the most common payment methods at BetVictor, including credit cards (non UK players), debit cards, BACS, PayPal, Neteller, Paysafe and Skrill 1-Tap. It also offers its FastFunds service for Visa customers, though it is dependent on your bank offering the Fast Funds service.
Yes. BetVictor offers a comprehensive eSports section that features markets on DOTA 2, CS:GO, League of Legends and Starcraft II. All of the major leagues and competitions are covered, including ESEA, IEM XV, King of Battles, LPL Pro and the LOL World Championship.
BetVictor’s welcome promotion has universal appeal, though for non-casino fans the ⅓ casino bonus is less enchanting, especially given the wagering requirements. Bonus hunters may feel less enthusiastic that BetVictor doesn’t offer a regular club-based offer. However, BetVictor more than makes up for the lack of a free bet club (or similar) with the variety of sports it offers, excellent horse racing offers and comprehensive BetBuilder. The only gripe on that front is that the BetBuilder can only be used on football and NBA basketball, so fans of more niche sports may have to stick to main markets. Thankfully BetVictor has plenty of those, offering competitive markets on a wide variety of sports, including eSports.
