BetVictor has a vast range of betting markets across a breadth of sports from around the world, as well as burgeoning market of domestic bets for people based in the UK. All the most popular sports are available to bet on including tennis, golf, motor racing, football, boxing and similar while you can also bet on some less popular sports including Gaelic Football, American Football, MMA/UFC, Ice Hockey and Winter Sports.
In comparison to other sites, BetVictor has a similar range of sports to bet on, but does lack betting in some services (such as the emerging arena of esports betting). However, for the sports BetVictor does offer betting on, particularly its most prominent sports, the amount of bets on offer is excellent and compares very well with any of the top betting sites available today.
BetVictor Football Betting
Betvictor FootballNavigating to the Football section is very easy as you can use the link in the Popular Pages section of the site, or scroll down to the Football section in the A-Z list of All Sports on the left hand side of the screen (or use the scrolling bar on the app to find the Football section).
BetVictor runs a number of football themed promotions and offers both for a short time and also for longer periods:
- Acca Insurance – Place a 5-fold (or more) accumulator bet with BetVictor on the Match Betting or Both Teams to Score market with odds of 4/1 (5.0) or greater and if one leg of your accumulator lets you down, BetVictor will refund your bet up to a maximum of £10 in your bonus funds account.
- Harry’s Pick Free Bet – Place 5x £2 (or bigger) wagers on any sports and get a £1 free bet for the weekend on Harry’s Picks.
BetVictor shows its Bet Boost prices at the top of the page for punters to bet on these enhanced offers if they wish to do so, with the remainder of the betting markets sorted by the different leagues and competitions underneath.
Click on a competition to bring up a list of forthcoming games in it and for each of these games you will have the Match Result price shown, and next to it a box with a link to all the other betting markets available for that game. The number in this box indicating the number of betting markets available. This number usually increases the closer you get to kick off. You can use the Popular Markets section to the left of the screen to bet on some of the most popular football betting markets quickly and easily.
BetVictor Horse Racing
Betvictor Horse RacingLocating the BetVictor Horse Racing betting section is very easy, simply check down the list of sports on the left hand side of the website (or scroll the middle bar in the app) to locate the Horse Racing tab and click on it to bring up the main menu. From here you can see a list of the next few races if you want to bet on those quickly while scrolling down reveals more information on the meetings and races taking place on that day.
Clicking on the time of a race will bring up information on each of the runners in the race as well as details on each of the horses, such as its form, jockey, trainer and of course the odds. BetVictor offers a number of odds for each selection including Faller Insurance, Betting Without selected horses and Betting on whether it will finish in the first three places, as well as the standard odds. Simply click on the selected odds to add them to your bet slip and you can then place your choice of bets, including multiple selection bets, from here.
Betvictor Mobile App
BetVictor offers a choice of different ways to access their sports betting platform on a range of mobile device. You can download a ready to go app for both iOS devices (from the App Store) or Android devices (from BetVictor directly). These services have been optimised to run on these devices in particular.
Alternatively, you can access BetVictor’s mobile friendly site at www.betvictor.mobi which will instantly recognise the device and operating system you are using and format the site to suit the device you are accessing it from.
What’s good about the BetVictor Sports app?
BetVictor’s sports betting app and mobile service has always been carefully designed and thought out and it does offer mobile punters one of the simplest ways to bet on the move. The apps are regularly updated with bug fixes and improvements which helps keep them running smoothly. The variety of sporting bets and markets on offer is pretty much the same as you’ll find on the website and navigating to the specific market you want to place a bet on is quick and easy.
The odds offered from BetVictor are generally competitive with other mobile betting services and in many cases, they are better. There’s also a good number of promotions and offers available on mobile throughout the course of the year and these are easily accessible from the app.
What’s not so great about the BetVictor Sports app?
The biggest omission with the BetVictor app is that it does not offer any live streaming services to its customers. This does mean that betting in play, while available, may not be quite so easy to use as on other comparable sites that do offer live streaming services to mobile devices.
If you are a BetVictor customer that has any issue to do with their account, or a bet then you need to load up the BetVictor Help Centre. The tab for this is located in the top right corner of the page next to the chosen language and the logout button. Clicking on this will open up the Help Centre and from here you can access a number of different options. The Help Centre is divided into easy to navigate sections for each BetVictor product (Sports, Casino and Poker) plus there is a General section, a Payments section and a Glossary for those hard to understand terms.
If you need to contact BetVictor for any reason pertaining to your account then you have a choice of methods available to you:
Live Chat – BetVictor offers a live chat service to customers that is available 24/7 although this uses a reactive Knowledge Base system initially to try and resolve your issue. Email – You can contact BetVictor anytime via email at [email protected]. Call Back Service – You can also use the Request a Call Back Time service to request BetVictor to call you at a convenient time to resolve your issue. Simply complete the form with your number and a suitable time and BetVictor will call you back.
BetVictor’s customer support service is generally fine for resolving the vast majority of issues quickly and easily. The Live Chat service is the best option for you if you want an instant answer to any query, though it is slightly disappointing that BetVictor don’t offer a number to call for customers to contact Customer Services via phone, which is often the most convenient option for people.
Your specific allowances will vary depending on your location and status at the casino, but for the most part if you are UK based, the table above will serve you well as a guide.
Low minimums on withdrawals and deposits, unlimited withdrawal maximums via BACS, plus the use of Paypal are a credit to BetVictor, and there are plenty of other options if you aren’t a Paypal fan as well. There doesn’t seem to be a good reason for the unusually long processing time when withdrawing using an E-wallet, but they may just be covering their backs by stating a potentially longer wait. Some of the processing times listed are a little longer than we like to see, especially when it comes to e-wallets. BetVictor claim to process withdrawals their end within 24 hours max although they aim for same day release, so maybe they are just managing expectations with these wait times. Nevertheless, everything seems to be in order here and while it isn’t their strongest area there are other bookies who fare much worse.
Cash Out is a regular sight these days, and at BetVictor it will be available only on Football, Tennis, Basketball, Horse Racing, Snooker, Badminton, Table tennis, and Volleyball markets. The Cash Out icon will clearly indicate whether or not your particular bet qualifies. In a nutshell, the feature allows you to take a profit or a loss before a bet has finished. You will be given a new price at the time you request Cash Out and this price will be based on live market odds.
You might want to use it if your selection is currently winning (and you bet on them to win) but they are starting to falter and the other team looks like scoring. You will take a smaller profit, but at least that profit is guaranteed; whereas if you wait for the game to finish, the other team could score meaning you lose your stake. You could use this the other way around too, and claw back some of your stake to reduce your loss.
Software, Platform, Games
Entering the Casino, a classic simple design gives a polished effect that is easy on the eye and feels like a professional environment in which to play. The interface ties in well by not bombarding players with options, instead laying out a clear menu to break up the slate of games with a few options to whittle down the selection further once you have chosen your category. For instance, if you choose Slots you can then filter by Provider, Newest, Most Played and Favourites. Although there is a search bar, we would have been grateful for a few more options here so as not to be faced with a screen of 100s of slots, but actually, the reduced size of the game tiles makes the choice easier to take in and process.
The game library is fast approaching 550 in number, and Microgaming are fighting with NYX for the top spot, with 112 and 137 titles respectively. NetEnt, Gameiom (Pragmatic Play), IGT, Play’N Go, Quickspin and a few others have a pretty even spread of the rest. These are all instant play, and since BetVictor have Liverpool FC as a principal partner there are some LFC specific games thrown in for good measure.
- Slots – A few exciting new slots are Clock Work Mice and Robin of Sherwood, but the ever-popular Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest also make an appearance. We could lose you for days exploring the rest.
- Jackpots – There are 16 in total, and with some like Mega Moolah seeding at £1 million you know you are in for quite a ride.
- Live Casino – However deep your pockets do or don’t go, you will be satisfied by one of the 50 games in the Live Casino. A huge Blackjack selection, 9 Roulette rooms, 5 Baccarat tables, and 3 Poker offerings await.
- Blackjack – Getting a special mention is Blackjack with a stonking 33 variations in the Live Casino and a further 5 in Table Games, from Blackjack Pairs to Blackjack Party.
- Table Games – Limited to only 11 games, but nevertheless, a good mix of Roulette, Blackjack and a single Baccarat offering.
- Video Poker – Since BetVictor closed the doors of its Poker operation in 2017, one of these 8 games are your next best option. Try All American Poker for that authentic feel.
- Instant Win – There are 32 titles here that get straight to the point. Sports fans could try Red Card or Golden Boot 2018, otherwise Rainbow Magic or Epic Gems could be for you.
We can’t fault the mechanics; the site is responsive and graphics load gently in a silky manner – there is actually something of the gentleman’s club about the interface which we really enjoy. A whisky and brandy type of gentleman’s club, though, not a dances and fluffy handcuffs one.
