BetVictor Mobile Sportsbook Review
BetVictor mobile sportsbook review
Introduction to BetVictor
BetVictor’s story starts back in 1925 when the current owner’s grandfather, William, opened Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium. There have been many changes since then but the long history and abundance of industry experience is evident in what is a modern, innovative bookmaker.
Site usability and style –
Range of sports/markets –
Customer service –
BetVictor is a business with a turnover of around £1bn and customers in well over 150 countries – in other words, they are one of the big boys. They offer the full range of gaming options (including an excellent mobile casino) but their sportsbook is where it all started and what they are best known for.
Victor Jr. (his father who founded the bookmaking firm in 1946 was also Victor) has been at the helm since 1975 and is famed for his reputation as the “Gentleman bookmaker”. That reputation is based on the fact that he isn’t afraid to take a position on a market and has a refined, old-fashioned, honourable way of doing business.
That said, BetVictor are also renowned for being innovative, being one of the first UK bookmakers to operate offshore (in Gibraltar where the company are licensed and regulated). That modernising streak also means their mobile betting offering is at the forefront, whilst their in-play betting console is also top notch. With excellent odds and no question marks at all over their integrity and security BetVictor is first grade betting option.
BetVictor free bets and bonuses
BetVictor score very, very highly in the offers and promotions department, despite the fact that the opening £30 in free bets and £10 casino bonus is not as enticing as that offered by some betting rivals (though it is a 300% matched offer). The reason for that is that in terms of regular and ongoing promotions they are pretty much one of the best bookmakers around.
Before we get to that though, let’s look at the £40 bonus on offer for new customers first opening a BetVictor account. It is a 400% match of your first bet with them, provided that bet is placed within 7 days of opening the account and is at odds of evens (2.00) or above. Your £30 free bets come in the form of three separate “Promo Cash” bonuses: £10 for any sports bets, £10 to use on in play markets, and £10 to use on accumulator bets. They will be credited within two business days of placing the qualifying bet. You also get a £10 casino bonus to use at their excellent online and mobile casino!
Any winnings from your Promo Cash are returned to your account, but not the stake itself. The casino bonus must be wagered through 40 times before you winthdraw any winnings.
The same Promo Cash rules usually apply to many of these offers but with so many free bets and amazing odds there is huge potential to make a profit from these promotions.
So how good is the BetVictor mobile site?
BetVictor mobile is excellent, with the same sophisticated black and grey colour scheme you will find on the site and easy access to all the main sports, promotions and special offers, as well as the mobile casino. The mobile site is quick, simple to use and with navigation to all the biggest events – including those that are in-play – getting a last minute bet on is really easy, even when you’re on the move.
In our opinion the best way to access the BetVictor mobile site is simply to go to the BetVictor site on your mobile device or tablet. The site functions perfectly that way and avoids the need to download an app or use up your phone’s memory. As well as betting in the sportsbook you can also access the mobile casino and even watch live steams of UK and Irish horse races.
BetVictor odds and markets
BetVictor cover the range of sports you would expect from a company with such a global reach – that is to say they have betting for pretty much everything, from football to horse racing, tennis to golf, MMA to Aussie rules, NFL to volleyball and even poker and politics. All of these are very easily reached on the BetVictor mobile site so top marks here, especially because their in-play console is so expansive and slick too.
The odds are simply superb and very hard to beat. On all sports, but especially the main UK sports like football they are very much at the top end of the betting odds you are likely to find anywhere, including the exchanges at times.
BetVictor customer service and contact details
Another area where BetVictor scores top marks, with customer service provision by a wide variety of methods, all available 24/7 and all staffed by helpful, efficient staff. In tests we very rarely (once in eight tests) had to wait longer than 30 seconds or so to access live chat whilst phone and email response times are equally impressive.
We also like the fact that the live chat option is very easily accessed, rather than being hidden behind layers and layers of alternative help and contact methods as is the case at some rivals. That said, BetVictor do offer an excellent online help facility that allows you to quickly get an answer to many issues without having to get in touch.
BetVictor overall verdict
BetVictor are Premier League and challenging for the title. We like everything about the way they do business and if you want great odds, loads of regular promotions and offers and a mobile site that works as good as any out there, BetVictor are just a click away.
