BETVICTOR REVIEW 2020 - SPORTS BETTING REVIEW

OUR OPINIONS ABOUT BETVICTOR

  • Tax-free betting.
  • Good for horse racing punters.
  • Good customer service.

Online-Betting Rating:

BetVictor have predominantly made their presence known in the world of online betting after some humble beginnings.

This is our Betvictor review which takes a lot at many different aspects of their services, with an in-depth look at their sportsbook.

This Betvictor bookmaker review will also focus on other aspects like their customer service, Betvictor app and their in-play service.

The bookmaker has been around since the 1940s but after some name changes and personnel at the top, their latest rebranding saw them switch back to the name BetVictor, where before they were VCBet.

They were one of the first UK bookmakers to send their headquarters offshore.

Through quality services, they have grown a huge presence in the online industry.

We will start our Betvictor review with a look at their sportsbook.

Betting markets and odds odds quality 10/10

Betting markets

This is our latest look at Betvictor reviews and we start right here with the sportsbook.

That is the crux of the operation of any online betting site off course and the two of the key aspects to focus on are variety of markets and odds as well as value.

You have big markets as you would expect and the football markets are a huge pull for them.

Football and horse racing are the staple of the bookmaker. Pay a visit to their sportsbook and those are the big focuses, because that is the big moneymaker for them.

That is where most of the sportsbook action will gravitate towards, but they cover a range of other sports markets through a pretty extensive sportsbook.

Rugby, snooker, volleyball, cricket, darts; it’s all in there along with a good nod towards the North American sports markets as well.

So their variety is actually very good. Something that BetVictor does offer is Asian Handicaps and because of having targeted the Asian handicaps market for so long, they carry expertise in this area.

While it’s just the one addition to a sportsbook, it can make a vast difference in terms of betting options.

If you are into Asian Handicap betting, then you aren’t going to be steered wrong by opening an account with BetVictor. They do it well.

In a good spread of betting markets, BetVictor customers aren’t just limited to sports betting, they run great financials and other non-sports based markets.

Their sportsbook runs well across pc and Betvictor mobile app platforms and there are plenty of options on the homepage of the website to get you to markets quickly, while the sportsbook menu is quick and fluid to use.

There is a left-hand driven menu to get around and navigate the Betvictor sportsbook with.

But by default the A-Z of sports has collapsed and there is a main horizontal menu which will do most of the driving on the site. Across that horizontal menu sits things like in-play, horses, football and dogs.

Right on the homepage there is the latest in-play betting to get straight too, along with the upcoming horse racing.

The biggest sporting action, say the weekend’s Premier League games if you are looking on a Saturday will also be listed on the main page at Betvictor for speed of use.

It is a good looking website and part of the reason why our Betvictor bookmaker rating comes in strongly is because of how good the sportsbook is.

There is value in there and there is variety, those two key aspects which we spoke about.

For the next part of this review we will take a look at the Betvictor football section of their sportsbook.

Betvictor Football Review

The football section of the sportsbook is accessed quickly through the main horizontal menu on the Betvictor website.

Clicking on that will take you through to the Betvictor football section where there are more key menus, those being Features, Competitions and Coupons, which help filter what is seen on the page.

Above all of the markets, there are usually any Enhanced Odds offers that they have running, so they are easy and quick to spot.

The listings of the football markets at Betvictor are clear and easy to read allowing to jump to the betting part of the experience very quickly. So the navigation of the Betvictor football was good.

The next thing we looked at for this Betvictor UK in-depth review was market variety.

For football, we consistently found 80+ pre-match markets for fixtures and that was not just in the major European leagues and international competitions either.

That was from lesser-known competitions, so the overall football coverage is superb including Betvictor transfer odds on players.

Right at the bottom of all the listings in the Betvictor football section is their Bet Builder.

This isn’t just a regular bet builder where options are pulled together from just the one match.

This is where options from multiple matches are collected and that’s why it is called the Betvictor Bet Builder Multi-Match.

So, for example, it could be Two Teams to both win 2-0 as an option. The big thing that we liked about the Betvictor bet builder is that we didn’t have to go searching around for it.

It’s there. It’s accessible. It is part of a superb football betting experience that is available at Betvictor.

Betvictor Racing Preview

There is a big racing section available at Betvictor. The main menu filters for Betvictor are the current day’s racing, the following day’s and futures.

One Betvictor tool that is available for racing betting is their Betfinder.

This is where you can choose from filters like Timeform Star Rating, Distance Winners, Beaten Favourite Last Race and the idea is that it will find a horse or horses based on your criteria.

So that is a very good Betvictor search option.

The horse racing coverage from Betvictor is widespread. There are racecards available from Australia, USA, Japan and more on top of all the UK and Irish racing options available.

The racecards are very nicely presented and individual races display basic race information such as form and weight of a horse. Market fluctuation as well is clearly visible in the market.

It is worth noting at this point that there are racing live streams available. All UK and Irish racing is available but they do also bring up international racing streams too.

There is a £1 qualifying bet needed to watch a live stream at Betvictor. Betvictor do also have Timeform tips in their racecards.

One big feature of the Betvictor racing experience is their Lengthen the Odds product.

For the Betvictor Lengthen the Odds you can pick the horse and Betvictor will tell you how many lengths that the selection has to win by for the bet to win.

It’s one of the more unique offerings from the bookmaker in this racing area.

Also, an important part of us coming up with this Betvictor bookmaker rating is other racing features.

There are horse racing match bets, each way betting and the operator has Faller Insurance available as well.

There are Place Only options too for the racing in the sportsbook. Best odds guaranteed Betvctor also have available.

Take an Early Price (EP) or Board Price and if the Starting Price (SP) is bigger Betvictor will pay you at the bigger price. Applies to all UK & Irish horse racing bets placed after 9 am UK TIME (10.00 AM CET) on the day of the race. General Promotional Terms and Conditions apply.

Betvictor Esports Review

There is Betvictor Esports available to players. This is easily accessible from the main menu.

We did note that it is perhaps not as prominent on Betvcitor than it was at some other bookmakers that we visited.

The main action for Esports betting that we found at Betvictor included League of Legends, Counter Strike, Dota 2, Overwatch, Starcraft II and King of Glory.

In our experience of browsing around the Esports section of Betvictor, we were surprisingly impressed by the range of variety.

There was superb international coverage from competitions like the Oceanic Pro League and others from Brazil, China and Korea.

Within those events, there are individual match options but not available at the time were match outrights. Other leagues that we visited for League of Legends did include betting on Maps, Handicaps and Correct Score.

So depending on the level of the Esports competition that is being looked at, the variety was around to be considered.

For the International Overwatch League, there was a good variety of submarkets for an individual match like the Map winners and Match handicaps.

So, all in all, there is actually a strong coverage of Esports in Betvcitor sports betting.

American Football Betting

One strong area in particular of the Betvictor sportsbook that we bring to light in this Betvictor Sports UK review, is North American sports betting.

They cover a lot of the NFL betting action from the opening game of a season right all the way through to the Super Bowl.

Options within the NFL betting at Betvictor are things like the divisional outright, conference outrights and winning the conference.

There are some great pre-match markets as well and this is where it gets really good. There is a superb variety of markets here from the likes of first touchdown betting, points totals, highest-scoring quarter, money lines and more.

There is also a great deal of live in-play NFL betting that they cover as well, which goes very well on the Betvictor app.

We will have an in-depth look at the BetVictor mobile app download later in this review. Before moving on from this section, punters can also get on Twitter and request a unique NFL bet through the Betvictor Betbuilder.

Novelty Markets

There are non-sports betting options available in the Betvictor sportsbook.

Those all into the Entertainment Betting and Politics betting menu sections.

At the time that we looked for the purposes of this Betvcitor betting review, there was not too much going on in the Entertainment area at all.

In the politics section, there was at the time, a whole lot of US Presidential Elections coverage. However, again this wasn’t an area in which they particularly offered a great deal of variety.

There was a lack of global markets overall in the political betting area, and the options for futures on things like awards didn’t seem to be in play too much.

odds comparisons

BetVictor odds packs a real punch when it comes to industry comparisons.

They are so reliable when it comes to putting top prices out there, that they offer huge value for punters just because of that.

In our experience Betvictor seems to run pretty low margins on soccer betting in particular which should have massive appeal, holding under 3%. Overall their average margin across the major sports is 4.5% which is more than reasonable.

Summary

So after a Betvictor login, what type of sports betting experience is a player likely to get with the operator? Well, for the purposes of this Betvictor review, we have to say that overall it’s a very good one.

The sportsbook is clear, functional and with a solid enough variety to keep us interested, particularly in the areas of football and racing.

We will delve into the user friendliness of Betvictor a little later on in this review.

But in summary of the Betvictor sportsbook review, we enjoyed what we found.

The odds were highly competitive, market options were plenty in the major sports at least. So they rank very well with us.



Betvictor sign up bonus, free bets & current promotions 8/10

bonus offers

There is a Betvictor welcome offer of £30 in free bets.

This is a straightforward welcome bonus offer. Once you have gone through the quick registration process, you just make your first wager of £5 with them of odds at Even Money (2.00) in their sportsbook.

Another Betvictor bonus is their Football Acca Insurance.

Betvictor will refund losing bets where only one leg lets you down, up to a maximum of £/€10 to use on another acca (paid in bonus funds).

In-play betting 8/10

live in-play betting

In-play betting at Betvictor can be accessed right from the main home page or there is a link from the main menu.

The menu link gets you straight to the full overview of the Betvictor in-play betting. Landing in that section of the website there is a main list of the current action.

Right at the bottom of the page, there is a very useful link through which a full list of upcoming events can be seen.

Betvictor brings some very good value to in-play betting odds on a wide variety of sports.

Major competitions from football, golf, tennis, basketball, American Football, cricket, rugby, darts and much more.

The links to the different sports are clearly seen at the top of market listings. In terms of aesthetics at the BetVictor live in-play portal, it is simple but very appealing.

At the end of the day, the most important thing is that there is a very responsive product and it is straightforward and simple to use.

That is just what you want when looking at the dynamic live-markets, a quick, responsive platform and Bet Victor delivers.

It’s very clear to read and easy to operate and that is what makes it so good and of course, you aren’t short of plenty of market options as well on live events.

A great, solid platform that is especially good on the Betvictor mobile app.

In-Play Football

Drop by an in-play football game at Betvictor and there is a wonderful animation graphic. That shows the flow of the game along with any incidents that have happened.

There is a link to statistics as well for the game and simple text updates. Those are things to help a punter try to gauge the flow of a game.

The layout beneath the graphics and score are the markets.

There was excellent coverage with the Betvcitor in-play service, easily finding over 50 active markets during a football match.

That number crept skywards when it was bigger games like Premier League betting for example.

It is very good that you quickly go through a Betvictor sign in and jump straight to the in-play action.

It’s prominent on the homepage on busy days. Markets are very clearly laid out and there is a little tweak that happens to what is seen in the main area of the Betvictor in-play football.

Usually what is presented is just the match outright on match listing. But there is a menu option and you can change to view other markets.

So if you land on the current in-play football action and want to see all the Both Teams To Score prices for all the games currently listed on the coupon, you can.

So that was a very nice touch of user-friendliness that we found. We will look more in-depth at the user-friendliness that customers can experience after a Betvictor login later in this review.

Another aspect of the user-friendliness of the Betvictor in-play experience was the ability to click between matches by a pop-out menu that sat at the top of the page.

Because the Betvictor bet slip is static on the right-hand side of the screen, taking out the full column, then it is really easy to see bets as well.

There is a great range of market options from the usual Totals, to Asian goal lines, draw no bet, next team to score and the list just goes on. It’s extensive coverage without any fuss.

In-play eSports

The coverage of live eSports action was also very good with Betvictor.

There was live action from the likes of the League of Legends (a lot of global league markets was available when we explored) to Dota 2.

Going back to League of Legends, in our experience, Betvictor delivered a very high amount of in-play options.

This is part of the reason why the Betvictor UK rating for live in-play betting is going to come in high.

For a League of Legends match there were markets like Correct Score, Total Maps, Team to score a Penta Kill, Team to score a Quadra kill and other handicap options.

We felt like that was better than average coverage of a match. The same was true with a Dota 2 match where handicaps, Maps and correct score options were in play.

The bigger the league that the eSports action comes from we noticed, the more coverage there is going to be on such live-action. But overall it was very good.



Extras & features 9/10

Extras & features

Do Betvictor do cashout? Yes. Cash Out exists as a standard feature at Betvictor.

It is readily accessible as well thanks to a good bit of layout design.

There is a tab that sits in the bet slip, which in turn just nests over to the right-hand side of the screen, so it’s quick to see which of any open bets are eligible for cash out.

In taking a look at any market, a player can see if that market is cash out eligible by looking for a little icon of a hand holding a banknote.

The cash-out option is also available on the bottom of the website where other options are like bet slip and open bets.

There is a standard Bet-builder which is fantastically quick on the Betvictor mobile app.

With this, a punter can pick a match and then customise their bet by picking presented options, such as match-winner, a penalty to be scored, first goalscorer, goals totals and cards.

Pick the options that create your ideal bet and the odds will change in the tool to reflect what you are doing. When you are happy, add the bet to slip and strike the wager.

Betvictor Live Streaming

There is a live streaming service available at Betvictor.

With horse racing streams from the UK, Ireland, South Africa and the UAE a minimum of £1 (€1 for customers in Ireland) is needed on any selection in a given race to access the live stream.

When the qualifying criteria has been met then when the stream is ready, a “Watch Race” message will appear on the card.

So that just needs to be watched when the race is about ready for the off. The inclusion of all the Betvictor live racing does give a lot of coverage for racing fans.

Even though it’s not live, there are extra streams that Betvictor customers can look at as well. Betvictor offers free race replays.

These are provided by Attheraces and are free to all customers, without needing a registration. To get to the race replays you have to look at the Racing Results and select a race and click on the TV icon.

Betvictor Virtual Betting

Another part of access for having a Betvictor account is Virtual Sports betting. The Virtuals run 24/7 on their site and the coverage is on football, greyhounds and horse racing primarily.

For Virtual Football there is international and club action.

The virtual horse racing is both over the jumps and the flat. So there are variations of a theme there. The virtual horse racing service starts a new race every three minutes.

Other sports that are part of the Virtuals experience at Betvictor include motor racing, basketball cycling and speedway.

Visiting the Virtuals section of the website will bring up the action that is happening at the moment and is coming up.

Events from different sports run side by side so you can switch around between them, or look ahead to a horse race that is coming up within the next ten minutes.

For the horse racing, there are straight outright options (each way available), while dipping into Virtual Football betting there was a lot more variety.

We experienced pre-match Asian Handicaps, Goals Totals, correct score, double chance 3-way handicaps, Winning Margins and a lot more.

For this Betvictor review, we found the number of markets available on Virtual Football plentiful, more than average really. There was also good commentary on games.

The graphics at the Betvictor virtuals were found to be very good. The better the internet connection the better the whole thing runs.



Betvictor payment options - deposit and withdrawal methods 9/10

Betvictor payment options

Customers at Betvictor have all of the usual deposit and withdrawal methods available for account funding.

Common options are Debit Cards, Bank Transfers, Payment cards, E-wallets like Skrill, PayPal and Neteller.

How long do Betvictor Withdrawals take? There will be varying withdrawal times depending on the method in use.

If there is a Betvictor withdrawal pending then it could be down to the operator doing extra security checks, which happens at times. So the not so clear answer as to how long does it take for BetVictor to payout is, is that it varies.

How to verify a Betvictor account? The operator may require documents at times, to confirm identity on things like withdrawals.

To get verified then a UK Government Proof of ID may be needed like a current signed passport or Driver’s Licence for Proof of Identity, a utility bill for proof of address and a payslip for proof of income.

To see the full range of Betvictor deposit and withdrawal methods, once you have done a Betvictor login, you can visit the Cashier section and click on the “Deposit” or “My Account” links.

Money has to be withdrawn back to the original funding source. If that is not possible, because of expiration for example, then Betvictor can be contacted to make alternative arrangements.



User-friendliness of website 8/10

User-friendliness of website

The user-friendliness of the Betvictor is pretty good. First of all, we will start summarising this with the menu.

Because that menu is not static on the left-hand side, it does make navigation around the site just a little bit on the clunky side, for want of a better word.

Going back and forth between sports and markets is not the smoothest. It’s better on the Betvictor mobile app.

Other than that, the website is laid out well and it’s very pleasant on the eye. It’s not gaudy or unappealing. It’s fresh, light and legible because of having a lot of space between markets.

So there is a nice simple, straightforward feel to the Betvictor website, and its operation is quick.

We especially liked the situation with the bet slip just taking up the entire right-hand column on the website. That was good for building multis and the like.

So for this Betvictor UK review, things were good, just slightly better navigation would have topped it off.



Betvictor Mobile App 8/10

Betvictor App

A Betvictor mobile app download is available for both Android and iOS. The easiest way to get these is to visit Betvictor’s Mobile App page https://www.betvictor.com/lp/apps where there are direct links to get them.

It’s worthwhile if you have a Betvictor UK account because it does operate more quickly than their main website and the mobile website version.

That’s the whole point of apps, quicker, lighter and easier access.

Their bet builder is available on the Betvictor mobile website and apps, which is a big feature.

It allows players to build custom bets on a football match from options like corners, player and team cards. The tool is quick and easy to use through the app.

On mobile, does Betvictor have cashout? Yes, it is easy to cash out as well on eligible active bets on the Betvictor app.

The sportsbook does scroll well on the app, in our experience, it was very quick and responsive.

But just like on the main site, getting to the menus isn’t the easiest and upon the first usage, the Betvictor app may need a little time spent on it to get used to how it flows.

Another big feature of the Betvictor app is the streaming of live racing while you bet.

So racing fans will certainly appreciate that and again, there is a need to have placed a £1 stake on a race to be able to watch it. Then there is the general overall in-play betting.

There is good odds value to be looked at in the Betvictor app.

It is possible to initiate a Betvictor sign up via mobile as well as get the Betvictor joining offer.

Betting on the latest football, tennis, rugby, cricket and racing (available with racing smart cards) is easy and quick through the app.

The bet slip is great because it is really operational and just completes a very good overall product.



Betvictor Customer Service & Support, Security & Reliability 9/10

Betvictor Customer Service

Betvictor are secure with their offshore operations and you can get a hold of their customer service around the clock.

They have good phone support or you can get a hold of them through email.

There is a help section available on the website, with different sections for Sports, Casino, Account, Offers and for Safer Gambling.

There is a search tool available to try and filter through and get to the exact answers that are required.

Another option is the Betvictor live chat that is available on the website and on the mobile app. The link to the chat is available in the main menu.

There are other contact options including sending a message, which has to be done through the Contact Us section on the website.

So there is a good deal of ways to get help in the Betvictor Contact section on their website.



Our Betvictor review rating: 9 / 10

Betvictor review

There are a few things that really stand out about the BetVictor service.

That will be their fresh and light in-play betting service and their market odds.

Our Betvictor UK bookmaker rating would probably have been a little higher but for navigation, but otherwise, they are a very strong performance.

There is a good variety in their markets and the Betvictor odds that are available are generally strong in comparisons.

eSports coverage really was exemplary in our experience in their sportsbook. So in our opinion is Betvictor UK top brand material?

They are and right from the Betvictor deposit bonus to the positives of the Betvictor mobile app review, it’s all good.

These are some pretty solid staples that add up to an overall high-quality product and then you throw on the likes of promotions, you have a very good service.
