A review of online bookmaker BetVictor - one of the UK's big name sportsbook's.

BetVictor in a glance

When it comes to online betting, everything is about the quality of the information, how easy it is to digest the odds and place a bet. That is probably why Betvictor is growing in popularity. Unlike most betting sites, Betvictor is a sportsbook that took time to thoughtfully design their site. The most important information - the odds - are displayed right across almost the entire screen. All other elements of the web design take second fiddle to the odds, even the sports selector.

BetVictor has a special emphasis on live betting. As soon as you open the page, you are presented with all the sports happening today, the current odds, details on how far they are into the game and what the current score is. All this information is available at a glance. Keep going down and you get a listing of upcoming events across Betvictor's various sports betting markets.

A quick history of BetVictor

It's interesting that Betvictor is one of the cleaner online betting sites out there, considering that the company dates back to 1946. BetVictor is actually Victor Chandler International, an international bookmaker operating out of Gibraltar. The company only offers 41 stores in Britain, mostly keeping their business offshore. It has kept them nimble, however, and the company now claims to have over half a million members and turn over in excess of 1 billion euros yearly. Victor Chandler International, amongst others, has managed to make Gibraltar the international hub for online betting.

BetVictor in-depth

Thanks to their operating off-shore, a big advantage that BetVictor offers is tax-free betting.

But there are other reasons to choose BetVictor. The sportsbook has the greatest variety of any online betting site, thanks to Victor Chandler's versatility. When he lost prime spots on horse racing, he expanded into taking more interesting bets from Middle Eastern oil barons. Now his company offers bets on just about anything that can be bet on, though not all of it is accessible through the BetVictor site. With Betvictor you can bet on everything from rugby to American football to Asian Handicap football to MMA to whether a financial market will rise or fall. It's basically currency trading, but with a better's interface and greater stakes.

In addition to their variety, they offer advice and analysis on sporting events to help their clients make the best possible bets. It is in their interest to keep people informed, as an informed audience will bet more than one who has been burned.

One nice feature that Betvictor has that many other sites don't is a mobile view. If you want to gamble on an iPhone or an iPad, you can do it with little trouble. They provide a touch-oriented interface just for those on a mobile device. You can even watch live streams of events on the go.

In conlusion

Whilst not quite yet amongst the very biggest online bookmakers, Betvictor is certainly amongst the best bookmakers on the internet. If you are looking for an online sportsbook to open an account with then you could do worse than BetVictor and their £25 Free Bet.
