Established in 1946, the Victor Chandler Group is well known for being one of the more innovative betting and gaming organisations. Victor Chandler was the first to offer tax-free betting to its clients, thanks to the daring move of relocating its account operation from London to Gibraltar. This move was so popular with bettors that many other bookmakers followed suit, and eventually the UK government abolished betting tax entirely.
Victor Chandler has a reputation for honour, integrity and class, and is commonly referred to as "the gentleman's bookmaker". Take one look at their home page and you can see that the designers have worked hard to translate those qualities to the screen, with a tasteful black banner, some smart looking tabs and a simple and elegant main template. If this Victor Chandler site was a piece of furniture, it would be a black leather armchair sitting in the private library of a Sussex country mansion.
Finding your way around the Victor Chandler site is easy, thanks to common sense menus and pages that load quickly. Generally speaking, you're only ever two or three clicks away from where you want to go, and when it comes to placing bets, the process is straightforward. Just tick the outcome you want to bet on, click the "Add To Slip" button to bring up your virtual betting slip, enter your stake and then confirm the Victor Chandler. The whole process takes longer to describe than it does to actually go through it.
Bet Victor is the name given by Victor Chandler to their sports betting 'brand' and is available on a wide range events, including all the usual sports, racing and specialities (politics, poker tournaments, etc.) The racing pages can be viewed in one of three ways: Quickview, which gives the horse names and numbers; Standard Racecard, which includes colours of the jockey silks; and Detailed Racecard, which gives the colours and form lines. Audio commentary is available from BetVictor for racing each day and there is a separate Football Saturday channel for soccer action.
Individuals who like to bet on financial markets are also well catered for here. Victor Chandler bets available include the FTSE 100 level at midday, the FTSE 100 level at official close, the DOW JONES level at official close and the FTSE 100 level at the year end.
Those of you who like to VC bet on the move can benefit from the associated BetVictor Mobile service and use your mobile phone to access a scaled down version of the site using your regular user ID and password. However, you will need to register for the mobile service before you can use it.
Recently VC bet have started offering betting in-running for those who like to make bets once an event has kicked off.
In a nutshell, BetVictor is a great site, and well worth a visit. If you consider yourself a gentleman among bettors, this is the sportsbook for you.

“Hard to find markets”
I find it tricky to find some markets when betting on a football match. If they made it easy to get around the site and find the markets you want, I would use them more often. I just hope the new site they are about to launch will tick all the boxes, then I will place more bets.4 people have found this review helpful
