Description

The company began operations after the Second World War, immediately becoming involved in sports betting. Another thing is that at the time, in the UK, this type of activity was at best "in the shadows", if not outright banned, depending on the context. So officially BetVictor managed to take its position on the betting market only in the mid-70s, which, however, did not prevent it from becoming a leader at the beginning of the XXI century.

In today's review our team will try to tell you in more detail about all the features of the reputable British bookmaker's website and mobile app. We will also look at BetVictor through the lens of objectivity and draw conclusions as to whether its current positions are that strong or need urgent improvement on various fronts.

Official BetVictor website

Official BetVictor website

The official BetVictor website has three independent scroll bars and this is already a plus compared to many competitors. The design also looks cohesive, attractive and dynamic. The occasional splash of orange on a blue-and-white background also does not change perception, but only goes to good effect, highlighting important information.

An important difference compared to other UK betting sites is the location of the personal account access icons and the registration and authorisation buttons. They are not to the right, where you are used to seeing them, but in the centre at the top. However, this know-how can be considered successful, given that the change of location has not affected the usability in any way.

The vertical left menu offers the types of bets and other services of the company, and the sports are located in a single category with an alphabetical structure inside. The most popular sporting events are located in the central sidebar on a white background, just below the information slider. Then there is a list of races in horse racing available for streaming and also in-play mode. Interestingly, the coupon with the bets already added has a separate position in the template, exactly on the top right of the screen. Therefore it is even more convenient to manipulate with your bets than if the betting slip was situated below and required some scrolling. A trifle, but nevertheless pleasant!

Security methods of website

The fact that BetVictor actively shares its licence with Parimatch should not put you off, as it does not affect the security of the site and all transactions carried out on it. In addition to a UK licence, the bookie also holds a licence to accept bets from the government of Gibraltar. There are also special limiters for responsible gambling which suggest prescribing daily, weekly, or monthly deposit limits. This is done during registration, so that new clients will not forget to enter the values they are allowed to enter.

Welcome Bonus

There are four different types of welcome bonuses for new players at BetVictor as of August 2022. These include the possibility of receiving four or even five times your first deposit as a freebets as well as multiplying your first bet by three if it is successful. And the minimum amount for the latter bonus is just £5, which is quite loyal to novice bettors, not just professional punters.

There's also a separate type of welcome offer attached to betting on horse racing. But it offers a £40 freebet, although 25% of it must be used not on sports betting, but when playing online slots. This feature is common to all types of bonuses from BetVictor. Also a common theme for all new customer bonuses remains the 7 day qualifying bet period as well as the minimum odds of 2.00 to qualify.

Promo codes

No promo codes were offered to us at registration, which leads us to the conclusion that BetVictor does not have them as of Summer 2022.

Offers for current clients of BetVictor

Offers for current clients of BetVictor

This part divides the promotional campaigns into types - they are either given on an exclusive basis to a particular client, or they are confined to a particular speciality. For example, BetVictor works closely with Harry Redknapp, who is the face and ambassadors of the bookmaker. That's why there are special promotions every week that focus on the success of this football coach, specifically his charges.

There are also regular special offers for betting enthusiasts that allow customers to stay afloat longer. It's not just about guaranteeing maximum odds before the race, but also about chasing the money, which involves refunding the entire value of the bet if your favourite has initially lost all chance of success in his race.

To stay up-to-date with BetVictor's offers, you must always keep an eye on our promotions pages.

BetVictor's Mobile App

BetVictor's Mobile App

The best indicator of the success of BetVictor's mobile solutions is their satisfied customers. The company ranks among the best in terms of the level of mobile applications for both Android smartphones as well as iPhones and iPads. Having freely downloaded the software for your device, you won't feel any difference in terms of performance, as well as the convenience of finding the right categories of menus and events. For all that, the page also seems overloaded with information. But after a closer look, all doubts immediately fall away - every element on the page is in its place and literally every element is needed for mobile betting.

Additional features

There is nothing unusual in the list of additional features offered by this bookmaker. But at the same time, they've managed to come up with something fresh for each of them, allowing them to beat the competition.

Live Streaming at BetVictor

Only users with a positive gaming account balance have access to live video streaming of horse racing events. The fact that the section is limited to horse racing cannot be considered a plus as well. Therefore this feature will only be appreciated by the few customers who actually live horse racing.

Bet Builder

A customer can place a bet on almost every event available in the pre-match. Of course, we have to wait for the company's approval, but there are no problems with that either. At least, this is what you can conclude based on the enthusiastic customer feedback about Bet Builder from BetVictor bookmaker.

Cash Out

An important feature of early betting from the analyzed company is that it is available for 99% of matches in various sports! What is the Cash Out feature, apart from the partial wagering option? That's right, the initiative of offering it most often depends on the bookmaker's own wish, not the punter's. We do not have this option at BetVictor because early withdrawal is available for almost all bets on as many markets as possible, which is what makes it so special.

Final say

There really aren't many drawbacks, so let's start with them. Firstly, there is definitely a limited number of channels for depositing and withdrawing money. For this reason, punters are unlikely to experience the entirety of quality bonuses. The issue of video broadcasts is not as straightforward as it may seem at first sight, yet it is rather difficult to introduce football or tennis content on the betting site at the licensing and certification stage.

There are more positives, though, and they concern all key aspects of betting - from the size of margin on popular markets to the specifics of the Cash Out feature, which is clearly focused on the user and his comfort. And BetVictor's mobile applications for various platforms, which are also freely available, are at the top of the quality standard at the moment.

Registration

There are four steps involved in the process of creating a BetVictor betting account. At the start you must provide your contact details (mobile phone number and e-mail address) and create a password. It is advisable to make it as complex and ornate as possible, as this will prevent hackers from gaining access to your confidential transaction details and betting history in future.

You must enter your sex, first name, surname and full date of birth in the second step. Clicking on the left arrow button indicates that all data is correct, which can only be corrected by contacting customer support.

Even before the third step, it is important to check that this gadget has not ever been used by another customer to register on the bookmaker's website. This may cause problems in the verification process later on. If you are sure of yourself, then go ahead and specify your home address, which should be in the UK. Importantly, the IP address will also cease to be a secret for the bookie at this point, but the safety of this information is guaranteed by a licence from the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. By the way, the home address is pulled into the form automatically, all you need to do is to enter your postcode correctly.

The final step is to choose the account currency, although the conversion will still take place automatically, even if the deposit will be made in another currency. It is also necessary to tick the boxes to accept the newsletter and the bonus mailing list (if necessary), as well as to confirm that you are familiar with the BetVictor betting company terms and conditions.

Restrictions on registration

Not to mention "one account, one customer" - it's standard in all UK bookies. Also we have already mentioned the restrictions about your physical and internet address.

You cannot register on gambling company websites if you are under the age of 18 in the UK. And if you live outside the UK, you won't be able to open an account either, at least not with verification.

Account

In terms of choice of systems for financial transactions this company seems to complement Parimatch with whom they share a license. Whereas partners only have card accounts available for deposits and withdrawals, BetVictor does not have this method of depositing money to your betting account. But four e-wallets (PaysafeCard, Neteller, Trustly and Skrill) are available. The minimum amount across all channels is £5, but there are also maximum limits. For example, for Pay Safe the financial capacity ceiling is £750.

PaysafeCard is not available for withdrawals, but there is a window of opportunity with the Paypal wallet. With it, you can get payouts ranging from £10 up to an unlimited amount. However, there is no maximum limit in principle for any of BetVictor's payout methods for UK punters.

For both deposits and withdrawals, there are no commissions. Depositing a game account, no matter which option you choose, will result in an instant payout; however you must wait between one and three days for a withdrawal.

Pre-match line

Betting on esport at BetVictor

The way the odds are displayed on the website and in the BetVictor mobile app can be changed depending on your habits. There are four options to choose from:

  • European;
  • American;
  • Fractional;
  • Asian.

There are plenty of sports to choose from, and they cater for a variety of needs from all corners of the world, as long as they are temporarily resident in the UK. The width of the pre-match line-up is not the most impressive, but enough for comfortable betting.

When calculating the margin on football, it turns out that the average margin is 4.5%, even if the match is between mid-table teams. Quite a decent level which does not disadvantage customers in the name of quick profits for the bookmaker.

Betting on esport at BetVictor

By the way, in cybersports betting the bookmaker's margin increases dramatically and is 8%. The betting table leaves a lot to be desired and often has only six or eight markets. Of course, this is extremely low for successful betting, so punters who like to bet on CSGO will definitely not choose BetVictor as their table-top guide. Well, the relatively high margin can be explained by the bookmaker's desire to compensate for classic sports, where it clearly shows even excessive loyalty to its customers. This also explains the almost complete absence of outright markets for betting on television shows and annual international competitions.

LIVE betting mode

When switching to in-play mode, BetVictor customers are unlikely to notice any difference, both in terms of the line-up and the odds margin. The bookie tries to compensate for the lack of broadcasts for sports other than horse racing with an informative match centre and high-quality graphics. In all other respects, betting during the event also maintains a high bar of quality standards and tries to keep up with the times.

Support

Customer's support

At the risk of over-praising BetVictor, they are slightly ahead of most of their competitors in the UK market when it comes to feedback. The fact is that in addition to the standard means of contacting customers, the company also has the know-how, the ability to send text messages. All channels can be replied in under 20 minutes, and if you are able to formulate your question in as much detail as possible, you will get an equally detailed and informative answer.

The most archaic, as of 2022, is the way of sending letters to e-mail, but even there consultants reply within 20 minutes. The most modern are enquiries to official pages of the betting company in social networks and video calls. There are also the typical means of communication such as live-chat, calls by mobile phone and a FAQ section with answers to the most frequently asked questions.
