BetVictor is one of the most established bookmakers, having been launched back in 1946 in the UK. The brand has undergone several rebrands over the years since starting out as Victor Chandler over 75 years ago. In 2004, the name was changed to ‘VCBet’ before reverting back to Victor Chandler and then eventually to BetVictor in 2012.
The bookmaker was founded by William Chandler who owned a greyhound track in London. It was run as a family run business for several decades with Chandler's sons and other family members taking the reins following his passing in 1946. In May 2014, the company was acquired by businessman Michael Tabor who is the current owner.
BetVictor has a huge presence in Europe and has sponsored several high-profile sporting events over the years including the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, the Victor Chandler Chase at Ascot as well as the Welsh Open snooker championship and the World Matchplay darts.

As well as covering practically every professional sport, BetVictor also provides an impressive number of betting markets. For example, popular soccer matches have around 200 different betting options and there are markets available that aren’t commonly found amongst bookmakers. BetVictor have recently added ‘Player Performance’ markets where customers can bet on markets such as:
- A player to have X number of Shots
- A player to have X number Shots on Target
- A player to have X number Shots Outside the Box
- A player to have X number of Assists
- A player to have X number of Offsides
- A player to make X number of Tackles
With in-depth statistical data now available for many sporting events, BetVictor have used this to create exciting and unique betting markets which is great to see.
The odds available at Bet Victor are generally very good. They’re up there with the best bookies in terms of value and often have some of the lowest margins on soccer matches and other sports.
BetVictor make it as easy as possible for customers to cash out their bets by providing a dedicated ‘Cash Out’ section. Log into your account and if you have any open bets that are eligible to be cashed out, you’ll find them by clicking on the Cash Out tab.
For each bet, customers have the option to either fully cash out their bet or partially cash it out. If you choose to accept the full cash out amount, your bet will be settled and the pre-agreed cash amount will be credited to your account. However, if you choose to partially cash out your bet, you can select how much of the cash out amount you would like to bank and the rest will remain on the bet and it will continue to run.
If you bet on soccer then a great reason to do so with BetVictor is their Acca Insurance offer.
Place an accumulator consisting of 5 or more selections and if just one of those legs fails to win, BetVictor will refund your stake up to a maximum of $10.
It’s a great offer and one that can result in some unexpected returns on losing bets.
Each of your selections can be at any odds, providing that the combined odds of your Acca are 5.0 (4/1) or greater. Each selection must also be from either the Match Result or Both Teams To Score markets.
