Betvictor is a bookmaker with extensive experience and was founded in Britain in 1946 by the British Victor Chandler. Betvictor was run as a family business for many decades and it was only in May 2014 that the previous main shareholder Michael Tabor completely took over the well-known and popular gaming company. In the past few years, Betvictor has repeatedly been able to demonstrate its reputation and professionalism through sponsorships with established professional clubs. Reason enough for us to conduct a detailed BetVictor test and to put the sports betting provider through its paces.
Betvictor’s head office is now in Gibraltar, where the provider has also received its high-quality EU license to offer sports betting and gambling on the Internet. As a customer, you can look forward to a great betting portfolio and outstanding betting odds at Betvictor. Especially for new customers, the bookmaker keeps very special bonus offers ready to welcome you. In addition to the sports betting and the separate live betting area, Betvictor also provides a great casino and live casino area.
The Betvictor website is very well designed and is convincing the first time you visit it. It is particularly encouraging that even newcomers should have no problem finding their way around the provider’s website. The general structure of the betting portal should be known to most sports bettors because Betvictor uses the common structure in 3 columns. At the top of the page, for example, the area of sports betting can be selected and on the left side you can then choose the sport you want. In the middle of the page the offered bets are available for selection and in the right area of the website you will find the betting slip and also information on special promotions by the bookmaker. The alternative view for live bets is also very nice!
BetVictor – registration and “my account”
This point has been one of the big criticisms of BetVictor for a very long time. Registration and management of the account were no longer up to date. The company has been able to completely change all of this in the past 12 months. In the meantime, both points have been solved as well as hardly any other provider. Everything can be found quickly and easily and is logically structured.
When you join BetVictor and make your first worth £5 bet you’ll receive £30 worth of bonuses to play with. In order to qualify, opt in to the bonus offer and make your first deposit. Note that deposits made using NETeller, PaySafe or Skrill (Moneybookers) are not eligible for the BetVictor bonus. Place your qualifying bet of £5 or more at odds of evens (2.00) or greater. Once you’ve placed this bet your account will be credited with the bonus bets. The sports bonus is split into 2 free bets of £10. Additionally you receive £10 for BetVictor’s awesome casino. We like this offer because it gives you a chance to try out different aspects of the site, and any winnings are immediately paid into your account. The £10 casino bonus must be turned over 40x and used within 7 days.
The bonus conditions are a little complicated, so make sure you check out the BetVictor website review for a run down of all of the terms, and we also recommend keeping up to date on the best free bets offers.
BetVictor betting offer – wide and good selection
Of course, the size of the betting portfolio offered also plays an important role in the assessment of a sports betting provider. Here Betvictor is convincing across the board and often provides up to 30 different sports for its customers to bet on. It is not really surprising that the British bookmaker places a very special focus on football. Here at Betvictor customers can sometimes bet from over 100 different leagues around the world.
The betting offer is particularly diverse, especially around the top European leagues in Spain, England, Germany, Italy and France. The Europa League and Champions League also get plenty of space at Betvictor. But the bookmaker also has a lot to offer for sports betting fans who don’t just want to place bets on football matches, so betting on events such as basketball, handball, tennis or motorsport is possible to include a small selection of the available sports mention.
The betting odds of the provider are of course also very important for the sports weather when choosing a suitable bookmaker. After all, you want to get the highest possible betting profit with a correct tip. The payout key is important here, so it’s good to know that Betvictor works with a high payout key of 95 percent on average. With absolute top games in football or other major events that are particularly in focus, the bookmaker from Great Britain can often even find payout rates of up to 98 percent, which is also very positive compared to the competition. We also noticed positively in the test that Betvictor usually comes out early with his betting odds.
The minimum bet at Betvictor is a very manageable 5 cents and the maximum winning limits at the provider are also very generous. The maximum winning limits for betting on games in the European top leagues are a breathtaking 500,000 euros per day. For individual sports, you can easily read the corresponding limits from the bookmaker.
Live betting has enjoyed a growing fan base in recent years and it is therefore good to know that Betvictor has its own live betting area for its customers. Here you will find a clear and graphically and technically very successful area. More importantly, there is a huge selection of live events for the provider’s customers. Most live bets are also offered at Betvictor around the many football games, but there are also numerous live bets on many other sports such as tennis, basketball, ice hockey or volleyball.
Other BetVictor products
We usually leave the other products aside, but BetVictor surprises us with perfect preparatory work. If you look at the casino, you will find almost all games that are only of interest in the beginning. There is also a selection of several live casinos, so that each region finds its suitable style. Whether Asia or Eastern and Western Europe, the croupiers are freely selectable and well trained. A really very good impression that is left here.
Is Betvictor reputable and safe?
The seriousness is definitely given at the bookmaker Betvictor. After all, the provider has been active in the field of sports betting and gambling for several decades. In addition, the bookmaker, who has since relocated to Gibraltar, has a high-quality EU license that has been granted by the responsible local authorities. But not only that, you also have a Schleswig-Holstein license with which you have also proven to authority that they are serious.
Another positive thing is that Betvictor completely protects its betting portal with SSL encryption, which is considered to be particularly secure. This protects sensitive customer data and data relating to payment transactions in the best possible way.
BetVictor betting tax
A law that was passed in 2012 requires all sports betting providers that have customers to pay 5% betting tax per bet. Many bookies therefore require customers to pay betting tax on all bets. But BetVictor goes a good way here, because only with winnings you have to pay a betting tax.
This means that if you place a bet of € 50 on a win Bayer Leverkusen and a odds of 3.4, you can usually expect a win of € 170. After deducting the betting tax due at BetVictor, you still get a net profit of € 161.50!
Deposit and withdraw at BetVictor
Of course, we also looked at the selection of payment methods at the bookmaker Betvictor. The provider was able to convince us, because there are a number of options for making a deposit. We noticed particularly positively that Betvictor now also offers PayPal as a payment method. In addition, you can also use Mastercard, Visa , Giropay , bank transfer, Entropay or Skrill and Neteller.
If a withdrawal is to be made, Betvictor also has enough methods to choose from. PayPal is also becoming increasingly popular, but many other well-known deposit methods are also available for withdrawals.Conveniently you can also pay with PayPal at BetVictor . The e-wallet is not only offered in many online shops, but is also integrated with the best and most reputable bookmakers. The reason for this is relatively simple: PayPal is therefore absolutely secure and fast payment provider. Many customers know the e-wallet from the numerous shops that PayPal has been offering for years.
In addition to security, the main advantage of PayPal is speed. Withdrawals work in as little as 24 hours, deposits only take a few seconds! This means: If you make a deposit and release it on PayPal, you will have the amount practically after confirmation in your BetVictor customer account!
In addition, deposits with PayPal do not cost any fees. This makes it clear why so many choose this e-wallet. It is not only used for classic deposits, just to top up your customer account. But PayPal shows its performance above all when you bet, for example, live betting! Because with these very dynamic and short-term changing quotas, a payment method is required that directly enables a transaction. And here PayPal shows its whole class. The handling of deposits and withdrawals is so simple that you can transfer money to your customer account with just one click – without waiting!
Support – reliable and all contact channels are offered
When it comes to customer support, which should also not be underestimated, Betvictor cannot really claim top marks. Because while other providers can be reached via a number of contact channels, at Betvictor you unfortunately only have the option of emailing the competent support staff. You can only contact the live chat if you have any questions or problems via the English website. Therefore, the British bookmaker in this area should definitely expand its offers in the future.
The app – a successful mobile site!
The bookmaker Betvictor is also well positioned around the mobile betting offer and has developed a successful optimized page of its regular betting portal for its mobile customers. Here, customers have the opportunity to place bets easily and comfortably on a reasonably modern smartphone.
For the need of wanting to bet in a mobile way, BetVictor has spared no efforts. Concretely, there are two downloads at your disposal. In both cases, not only sports bets and live bets are integrated, but also a large part of the casino games. For users of iOS (iPad, iPhone), the download is in the iTunes Store of Apple. The reference to it is difficult to be found on the website of the bookmaker. For this reason we recommend a direct search at iTunes.
In the case of Android devices, the situation right now is that Google Play does not allow any gambling apps. BetVictor has therefore saved the file (.apk) on its own server. It can be downloaded from there. Before the installation, the user still has to activate the option “trust unknown sources” in his settings. Then he clicks on the download so that the BetVictor app can be installed. Shortly after the logo of the app appears in the menu and on the home screen.
Users of other systems are not excluded from BetVictor. Even without the download, the selection of the bookmaker can be accessed. An adaptation of the resolution of the end device then takes place.
Conclusion: BetVictor is prepared with solutions for all users. Android and iOS are the most popular and for this reason they receive an app with free download. Other operating systems should simple head for the mobile-optimised website directly.
