The company Victor Chandler, which is now known as BetVictor, was founded in 1946 by the current owner Victor’s grandfather. William (the Grandfather) had several years of ownership of Walthamstow Stadium which included laying bets on the dogs . After his death, Victor Senior took over and, shortly after that, Senior passed away leaving the ownership in the hands of the now famous face of Victor Chandler.
Initially focusing the business on laying bets to wealthy businessmen in the Far East, Victor gave up the business’ ambitions of laying bets on course for wealthy businessmen and went on to concentrate in the online market. He did this very successfully and has become a trusted brand in the online betting circuit. He reportedly turns over in excess of £1billion and has half a million customers throughout 160 different countries.
Customer support is something they pride themselves on, and they can be contacted with any problems 24 hours a day either by an online chat function or over a freephone number. The response times are quick and all the staff are fully trained in dealing with customers problems.
The deposit facilities are as you would expect, and any form of payment is accepted. They use the latest secure server technology to make sure that your money is safe.
For punters they offer very competitive odds and can often be seen offering better prices than the competition in early markets. They have come into line with competitors Bet365 by being one of the first bookies to offer odds the night before racing in handicap races which means that if you like to grab early prices, you can rely on BetVictor to give you a bet the night before racing.
The only area in which they are lacking is their special offers. They have very few concession offers and are missing out in comparison to other bookmakers who provide regular promotional offers. While they are good when other bookmakers aren’t offering special bets you should check for special offers elsewhere first.
They offer extensive markets and are a must have for anyone serious about their betting.
