Victor Chandler Limited was founded back in 1946, and as a result, the bookmaker has now acquired more than 70 years of experience and know-how in the sports betting industry. In the past, betting slips still had to be filled out by hand and handed in. However, nowadays you do this online, including via the BetVictor app for those who which to do so.
Behind the brand is the homonymous BetVictor Limited. With their headquarters being located in Gibraltar, for customers in the United Kingdom, the betting provider possesses a full license from the UK Gambling Commission, whilst for those outside of the UK, a full license if provided by the government of Gibraltar.
As part of their service, BetVictor not only offers sports bets and live bets, but also a full-equipped casino. This area can also be reached via the BetVictor app. Through a simple download procedure, customers gain access to a whole host of entertainment possibilities, all on their mobile device. Below are some of the key points from this BetVictor sports betting app review.
The Betting Selection – How is the BetVictor App equipped?
Mobile betting at BetVictor takes place optionally via the app or via an optimised mobile version in the browser. If possible, we would prefer the app for the sake of a better overview.
In the test we counted around 30 betting markets. These are also available on the mobile version for smartphones and tablets without any trade-offs. Football is very clearly focused on, but tennis, basketball and ice hockey are popular sports at the bookmaker as well. What you do not often see though are betting markets for hurling, nine-ball pool and speedway.
Live bets are divided by BetVictor into those that are possible currently, as well as those which will be available in one hour and in the following 24 hours. Hereby, the bookmaker likewise focuses on more sports at the same time, in order to show a certain variety.
Live streams are offered in the area of horse races by BetVictor. On the English website, races from the UK, Ireland, South Africa and the Arab Emirates are listed. BetVictor wants a minimum stake of £1 on these bets and grants access to the live streams with this. To what extent this is also valid for the app, we do not know. In any case, they are present and as such also theoretically available on the mobile device.
Conclusion: BetVictor strives towards a broad betting selection. Sound 30 markets are available, seasonally even more sometimes. They are all presented on the BetVictor sports betting app as well. Live-streams are also available.
Downloading of the BetVictor Sports Betting App
For the need of wanting to bet in a mobile way, BetVictor has spared no efforts. Concretely, there are two downloads at your disposal. In both cases, not only sports bets and live bets are integrated, but also a large part of the casino games. For users of iOS (iPad, iPhone), the download is in the iTunes Store of Apple. The reference to it is difficult to be found on the website of the bookmaker. For this reason we recommend a direct search at iTunes.
In the case of Android devices, the situation right now is that Google Play does not allow any gambling apps. BetVictor has therefore saved the file (.apk) on its own server. It can be downloaded from there. Before the installation, the user still has to activate the option “trust unknown sources” in his settings. Then he clicks on the download so that the BetVictor app can be installed. Shortly after the logo of the app appears in the menu and on the home screen.
Users of other systems are not excluded from BetVictor. Even without the download, the selection of the bookmaker can be accessed. An adaptation of the resolution of the end device then takes place.
Conclusion:BetVictor is prepared with solutions for all users. Android and iOS are the most popular and for this reason they receive an app with free download. Other operating systems should simple head for the mobile-optimised website directly.
Registration at BetVictor via the App
Once the BetVictor app is installed, the user recognises right away the two buttons “Login” and “Open Account” on the homepage. If an access already exists, one can go directly to the bets after entering the password and user name. Otherwise, the new customer creates his account within a few minutes.
The advantage here is that all necessary steps are self-explanatory. The registration form is in the centre. Here the customer enters his personal data. Name, address, date of birth, etc. are important, in order to be able to identify him later on. This means that only he is really entitled to the winnings.
After completing the registration, only a deposit is missing and then the first bet can already be placed. At this point, an e-mail also comes in, which points out the mobile bonus and other possibilities at BetVictor.
Conclusion: In this respect, the BetVictor app keeps it very simple. From the registration to the deposit, only 5 to 10 minutes go by. Our review of the app could not be more positive here.
Structure and Clarity of the App
Only because a BetVictor app download exists does not say anything about how well this application can be used. Whoever bets regularly does not want to wait an eternity to be able to do so. And beginners desire a simple navigation in order to be able to fill out their betting slips with a few clicks.
On the homepage of the BetVictor sports betting app exactly this simple overview can be recognised. Underneath the logo there are buttons for logging in and opening an account. Below this, the current promotion, mostly a mobile bonus or a free bet which can be claimed. This is followed by suggestions regarding current live bets in football and other sports. Thus the user has a quick start every time.
Further into the navigation there is then a menu line where the live bets are located again in the first position. In addition the most popular betting markets such as football, tennis or handball. Precisely those sports which are popular at BetVictor at that moment. With the next click, odds are selected. Either you add some, in order to generate a combined bet or you determine your stake on the betting slip. Now the bet can be placed. In reality only a few seconds go by until a complete bet is placed.
At the bottom of the mobile app, BetVictor lists some more important options. Thus you can have a list of all the sports displayed, return to the home screen or change to the casino. Our experience with the BetVictor app has been continuously positive. The high user-friendliness has convinced us during the test.
Conclusion: Via the BetVictor app, the customer receives the complete range of functions. A simple navigation takes places purely intuitively. All sectors are clearly recognisable and distinguished from one another. Only a few clicks are necessary to complete a betting slip.
The Deposit and Payout Methods via the App
In order to be able to participate in sports betting and have chances of winning, the BetVictor customer needs some capital first of all. He can transfer it with one of the following methods: VISA, MasterCard, PayPal, bank transfer, Skrill, Neteller, GiroPay, Sofortüberweisung, PaySafeCard and many more. Among these options, PayPal presents a particularity, because it is very rarely accepted by bookmakers. And these methods are also available via the BetVictor app.
For payouts, the options are reduced a little. For instance, no payout is possible via the PaySafeCard, because in this case it is a prepaid credit balance. BetVictor stipulates that the chosen deposit method is to be used for payouts as well (as far as technically possible). Or else the system changes it and suggests the bank transfer as the most secure of all options.
Conclusion: An important aspect is that the user of the BetVictor app is not dependent on another end device such as a PC or a laptop. He can deposit using his smartphone or tablet and administer his payment processes with it. It should be emphasized that PayPal is a highlight here.
The Bonus Offers of the BetVictor App
A mobile bonus especially for smartphones and tablets is not being offered currently. However, the customer can use the common bonus. This one promises 400% on the first deposit. This requires a bet of only 10 GBP and for free there is a betting bonus of 40 GBP added to it. Every betting slip is valid which has been handed in with odds of 2.00 or higher.
The important aspect here is that this concerns the very first bet of the new customer. The 40-pound bonus money is then divided into £10 in Sports Free Bets, £10 for In-Play, £10 for Accas and £10 Casino Bonus. The granted sports betting bonus is valid for seven days.
Our experience shows that such a bonus is very seldom. It does not promise very high sums, in return though a multiplication of the deposit. In addition, half of the bonus can be used in the casino. This promises great entertainment on both platforms.
Furthermore, there is also the possibility to participate in other promotions. BetVictor shows you these directly in the app and in addition informs you via e-mail. In this way, there is always a new bonus, a free bet or some cashback on a lost bet.
Conclusion: BetVictor does not exclude its mobile customers from the bonus offers. Even though there is no bonus especially for mobile users, all the other promotions can be taken advantage of.
Customer Service regarding the BetVictor App
A wish to communicate with the bookmaker arises time and again. Be it due to technical problems, a comprehension question regarding the bonus offer or a request to increase the deposit/payout limits. How can the BetVictor customer service be reached on such occasions? The best way is via the live chat. The bookmaker places great value on quick and efficient processing of issues. During the test, an employee of the live chat was contacted within a few seconds.
Besides that, BetVictor also has e-mail and fax at your disposition. As a rule, the written way is only used for verifying and sending evidence. Unfortunately, BetVictor does without a telephone number, which is still the most comfortable way to communicate for many.
App-download for Android & iOS
A lot of known payment methods allowed
Simple design simplifies the navigation
Support only with live chat & e-mail
Few live-stream transmissions for horse races available
Conclusion regarding the BetVictor Sports Betting App
BetVictor has thought about its app and offers a couple of good concepts. Thus the entire betting selection can be accessed on a smartphone and a tablet. Concerning the design, the bookmaker refers primarily to the live bets. In an ideal case, the customer bets while he is watching the match on TV or following it live at the stadium. In the case of the live streams, BetVictor limits itself up to now to selected horse races in Great Britain, Ireland and a few other countries. This could still be expanded, at least to include the matches of the best football leagues.
The service show creativity with its bonus. It grants 600% or 60 GBP when the customer is ready to place his first bet amounting to 10 GBP. Respectively half of the bonus money is then meant for sports betting and the casino. A somewhat different approach that we found to be interesting in our review.
The structure and the design of the app are easily understood. Here the user finds his way immediately, without having to search much. Payment methods are sufficiently available, including PayPal. The support responds quickly and competently in the live chat. However a BetVictor hotline is missing.
In total we conclude the review of the BetVictor app with a good feeling and recommend it to our readers.
