Like Betfred, BetVictor is the online incarnation of a traditional bookmaking business that likes to signal the historical head honcho behind it, in this case Mr Victor Chandler. Victor no longer runs the business, but it was his foresight back in the 1990s that took the bookmaking business his grandfather began back in 1931 online and led the trend for Gibraltar to become a home for many of the best online betting services.
The BetVictor brand routinely sponsors sporting events, with a strong presence in horseracing no doubt fuelled by the interests of the business’s current owner, Michael Tabor, a well-known racehorse owner himself. Its long standing presence in the online sportsbook market also means BetVictor commands a huge following, and it can now boast over half a million customers in more than 160 countries. That kind of statistic also helps to explain BetVictor’s extremely healthy turnover of more than £1 billion a year!

Layout & Usability
Whether its BetVictor’s long history of successful online bookmaking we can’t be sure, but this is one very nicely designed site. Whether you dive in from your desktop or mobile, BetVictor’s sportsbook pages are a model of clean and elegant design that makes finding the bets you’re interested in then wagering on them almost effortless.
There’s a huge range of markets on offer, covering a massive choice of scheduled and in-play events and thoughtful navigation and user options to tailor your searches to deliver the information you’re after.
Should offered odds tempt you, clicking them updates the pop-up virtual Bet Slip, and a second click can toggle them off again. It’s all very intuitive and makes it a joy to compile single or multiple bet combinations before adding your stakes and placing those bets. We have only one niggle – updated odds in in-play betting aren’t currently signalled as obviously as some rival sites. Personally we like to see movements up and down highlighted clearly so we can quickly spot where potentially interesting changes are happening.
One final noteworthy feature of BetVictor’s online sportsbook is its own #PriceItUp feature for Twitter users. Tweet a market request to BetVictor using that hashtag and, once the BV traders have priced it up, it’ll be live on the site for you (and anyone else who fancies it) to whack on your wager. Very nice indeed.

As an old hand in the online sportsbook (and historically real-world bookmaking) business it’s perhaps no surprise that BetVictor does things exceptionally well. This is a very elegant service that can teach its rivals a thing or two about ease of use on both desktop and mobile devices. If you’re serious about your sports betting, then you owe it to yourself to put BetVictor on your shortlist of online sportsbooks to try. We think Vic’s a very classy operator and a genuinely hard act to follow.
