The origins of BetVictor can be traced back to 1931 when the Walthamstow Stadium owner William Chandler opened a bookie shop. After his death in 1946, the bookmaking business was passed to two of his five sons, one of which was named Victor. In 1974, the business was taken over by his son, Victor Jr.
Although it is still considered a UK sportsbook, BetVictor moved its headquarters to Gibraltar in 1998, with the goal to avoid the strict UK gambling tax laws. Between 2004 and 2012, the company changed its name to VCBet and then Victor Chandler, before rebranding to BetVictor once again. In 2014, the company was taken over by Michael Tabor, a majority shareholder of Victor Chandler International.
Today, BetVictor is one of the most successful gambling companies and one of the most recognised names in the sports betting industry. It claims that it manages more than half a million player accounts from bettors residing in over 160 different countries.
For the ultimate on-the-go betting experience, BetVictor has prepared two betting apps, one each for Android and iOS users. Simply find the app in your app store or download it directly from the website. The app works faster than the mobile site, but if you don’t wish to download anything, you can still simply log in through your mobile browser and bet from there.
No matter which sport you plan betting on, BetVictor will give you a chance to explore dozens of markets that stretch from main ones such as match betting and correct score to a wide variety of prop bets that involve the number of corners, yellow cards, top goalscorers, and more.
All the main sports are available for live betting as well. Moreover, each popular event will have the Bet Boost option where you will get better odds for certain prop bets. Speaking of odds, BetVictor features some of the most competitive odds in the industry that are often higher than what you will find on other sports betting websites.
