BetVictor is a popular UK online sports betting site, licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and available both directly through their website or as a mobile app. BetVictor offers a solid platform with great security, competitive odds and a wide range of markets. Odds on major football events often seem to be better than average, and they offer an excellent welcome bonus with up to a 600% match on your first deposit.
BetVictor mobile review
Like any other online sportsbook, BetVictor is aware that mobile betting is a must for today’s sports punters who often want to do their sports betting on the go, especially when it comes to live betting. They have developed a basic but functional app that is available free for iOS and Android devices.
The app works fine but definitely lacks the high-quality feel and extensive functions of other sports betting apps. The main navigation bar shows you the available markets menu, and from there, you can tap through to find events. Placing a bet is easy on the app, needing just a few taps to place and confirm each bet. Many punters, however, will find the app hard to navigate, as the main menu does not have many other options, and the screen tends to look quite cluttered, especially on a small smartphone.
It is possible to access all important functions from mobile, including live betting and even live streaming, but there are also some limitations. Notably, there are fewer ways to deposit, and there are also no separate mobile bonuses, although the main site bonuses can be claimed via the mobile app. Overall, the app is certainly good enough for betting on the go, but it is not as user friendly as the website.
What bonuses do BetVictor offer?
BetVictor offer a generous welcome bonus that allows new customers to access a matched deposit bonus of up 600%, which is highly unusual. Admittedly, the bonus is capped at just £30, but customers need only bet an initial £5, with odds of 2.00 or more, to claim a bonus of £30. It should be noted that this is in the form of two free sports bets of £10 and a £10 casino bonus, which may not appeal to all sports bettors. You also only have seven days to use your bonus, and it excludes cashed-out bets.
You will need to opt-in to claim your welcome bonus. Always check the terms and conditions on the site. These change from time to time but currently state, for example, that the bonus can be used as one whole bet or as a number of smaller bets but must not be combined with real cash bets in order to place a bigger bet.
Watch your BetVictor account for ongoing promotions and bonuses for existing customers, which may pop up from time to time. You may also want to check out the innovative #PriceItUp offer, which allows you to request your own unique bet on certain markets.
What sports are available to bet on?
BetVictor currently list more than 35 different sports that they have available, covering a wide range of sporting interests. Offerings naturally include popular European sports such as football, golf, tennis, Rugby League and Rugby Union, but also popular US sports, such as American football, baseball and basketball. In addition, you will find other international sports, from Aussie-rules football to Gaelic football and ice hockey. You can also bet on winter sports, virtual sports and MMA and UFC fights. Some more unusual sports available are handball, water polo and floorball.
All sports are listed alphabetically down the left-hand side of the website, and clicking on any sport takes you to a screen listing events available to place a bet on, displaying current odds and also showing a link to use the #PriceItUp feature to create your own bet. There is something for everyone here, and it is easy to find your way around and discover events to bet on.

What features does BetVictor offer?
BetVictor offer several features that make this sportsbook attractive to sports fans and online gamblers. They offer competitive odds, especially for major league football events, both when betting pre-match and live, and the interface on the website is clear, uncluttered and easy to use, with quick links to all sports clearly displayed. A sidebar menu makes it easy to access specific sections such as “Today’s matches”, “Tomorrow’s matches”, and “Football specials”.
BetVictor have a live betting section, accessed by clicking “in-play” at the top of the home page. This will bring up a list of events available for in-play betting, complete with live scores and stats, to guide your live betting decisions. There is also a cash-out feature, allowing customers to stop bets during live play. BetVictor currently have very limited options for live streaming, unfortunately, with live streams only available for horse racing, so football fans will need to stream games from another source if they feel the need to watch the action unfold when live betting. They can, however, check scores and other updates via the site or app.
There is a range of deposit options available, including credit and debit cards as well as Skrill, Neteller, PayPal and paysafe card. There is no fee for deposits, limits are low (£1 – £10) and most deposits and withdrawals via cards and e-wallets are instant. There is a handy, searchable customer help section and customer support is open 24/7, accessed by email, live chat or SMS. You can also request a call back (at a time you specify) if you need to speak to someone by phone.
Betting Veteran pays a visit
Betting Veteran paid a visit to BetVictor and enjoyed his experience at the sportsbook. He found the website clear and easy to navigate, and he was able to easily register an account. Payment methods were plentiful, and his deposit registered instantly. There was a minimum funding requirement of just £5 with his chosen payment method, which allowed him to claim his £30 bonus. Betting Veteran found it very simple to find the events he was interested in and easily placed his first few bets.
The BetVictor website is attractive and enticing, offers competitive odds, has plenty of markets to choose from and provides a highly functional live betting section. The app is basic, but it is possible to access all the main functions on mobile, and it is adequate in spite of having few extra bells and whistles.
BetVictor offer a cash-out feature, a useful customer help section and responsive customer support. The ability to request call backs, on the rare occasions this might be necessary, is a very welcome feature. There are several convenient funding options and a low minimum deposit requirement, plus of course that 600% deposit bonus, though it’s a shame that is capped at just £30. There are a few disadvantages, including the lack of live streaming for the vast majority of events, but if that is not a deal breaker for you, this is certainly a sportsbook to consider.
