Betvictor Free Bets: Pick up £25 free from the man known as Victor Chandler

BetVictor might look as though it is a new bookmaker to many, but it is in fact the new name of Victor Chandler.

The Chairman of the company– Victor Chandler – decided to change the name recently and it seems as though the rebranding has worked as they have been one of the fastest growing bookies in recent years.

They currently do their business in Gibraltar, which means they can offer great value as they avoid UK gambling tax.

BetVictor offer a great sign up deal to new customers as well as you can claim up to £25 in free bets. All you have to do is deposit money into your new account and then you will see funds go into your account.

You could stake £25 and end up having £50 to bet with, as long as your first bet has odds of 2.00 or greater. One thing BetVictor seem to allow is any type of bet, no matter how high the stake may be and much of that is down to the financial situation they find themselves in right now.


When it comes to football accumulators, BetVictor are one of the best sites to bet with as they offer refunds on losing five-fold bets if one of your selections let you down.

We all know how frustrating it is when you just miss out on some good profit, but this bookie is there to help soften the blow and you could even have another go at a fivefold.

Also, BetVictor are one of only a few bookies to offer best odds guaranteed in horse racing – which means you get the best value. Say you back a horse at 8/1 and its odds go to 12/1, you’ll get the highest price.

They have an extensive in-play market as well which allows you to keep up to date with the action and have a bet on what you think might happen in a certain match. BetVictor have one of the best mobile betting apps around as well, so wherever you go, this bookmaker can come with you.

You’ll often see Victor Chandler on the television in some comical adverts and it is good to see that not only do BetVictor offer some cracking odds and markets, but they do it without taking themselves too seriously.


Betvictor Money Back Specials

Whatever sport you want to bet on, you’re likely to find it here and one market that they are always good for what football players might be heading where in the summer of January transfer window. You can often get some very good odds here and not many bookies have a market like this one.

What sets Betvictor apart however is their money back specials, which are released to coincide with the latest sporting events. These normally involve refunds in the form of free bets if a heavily backed selection does not win.   

For example, Betvictor offered refunds in the form of free bets if the 11/10 shot Dawn approach didn't win the Epsom Derby, while the firm again offered refunds on the French Open Tennis, refunding losing bets if your selection lost in the fifth set. 

Grand National at Aintree 2014 - Non Runner Non Bet


Of course the name of Victor Chandler is synonymous with horse racing, and Betvictor in particular are quick to get their ante post racing markets up. The firm recently announced they are non runner no bet on the 2014 Grand National at Aintree, one of the first bookmakers to do so. This means that if you back a horse on the Grand National Ante Post markets and your selection does not run, your stake is refunded.

Not all bookmakers offer this service, so it is well worth making note. 

The same 'non runner no bet' rule also applies to their 2014 Cheltenham Ante Post markets also.

Betvictor 'Best Odds' Guaranteed

Betvictor are also on the side of horse racing punters as they will also pay out if the SP (starting price) of a horse is bigger than when you previously backed it.

So for instance you back a horse at 3/1 in in the morning of a race and the horse drifts to a price of 5/1, Betvictor will pay you at the bigger price of 5/1. This applies to all UK and Irish races, and is a welcome relief should your selection drift!

As well as their superb offers and markets on real sports, there are also plenty of virtual sports and casino games available for punters, so BetVictor do seem to have all bases covered.

Whatever sort of punter you are, BetVictor is a cracking place to do your betting and once you open an account, you might not need to look anywhere else.

All you need to do is to stake only £1 before the race begins and you can gain access to the live televised pictures, which are streamed through the Betvictor site in high quality.
