frequently asked questions

Where can I see how much I have wagered towards my bonus?

To find out how much you have wagered towards a bonus, provided the promotion required an Opt In via the Offers/Available page you will be able to keep track of the progress of any wagering in the Offers/Active section under that particular promotion. Please check under Promotion Status where it says “To release Bonus Funds, wager:”

Can I change my account currency?

Once you have created your account it is not possible to change your account currency so please ensure you select the one best suited to you. If you have made a mistake in selecting the wrong currency when creating your account please contact a host through either chat or email. They will be able to close your current account so you can open a new one in the correct currency.

How long does it take after I request a withdrawal of funds?

The following timescales below will give you a general idea of how long you can expect to wait before any withdrawals reach your account:

Credit/Debit Cards: 3-6 business days*
E-Wallets (Paypal, Neteller, Moneybookers, etc.): 1- 3 business days*
BACS (UK Only): 3 – 5 business days*
Telegraphic Transfer: 1 – 10 business days*

*Does not include bank holidays or weekends. Please note that all payment requests must be approved by our Security Department before they are processed by the Payments Team. Withdrawals are therefore not immediate, there will be a period of “holding” before transactions are released.

Can I cancel a withdrawal?

It is possible to cancel recent withdrawals from the Cashier provided that they have not already been cleared by Security for processing.

After clicking the ‘deposit’ button or My Account, if it is still possible to cancel a withdrawal, a message will appear showing the words “Pending Withdrawals”

What is a Rule 4 deduction?

In all horse races, excluding ante-post bets, if a horse is withdrawn, not under starter’s orders, bets will be settled in accordance with rules as laid down in Tattersall’s Rule 4(c), which lays down that backers of the withdrawn horse will have their stakes refunded.

When there has not been time for the market to reform, deductions are made from winnings (exclusive of stake) according to the table below.

Why is there a delay in bet settlement on BetVictor?

Bets are usually settled within 10-15 minutes of an event finishing and the results being known. Live/In Play results may be settled during breaks in play such as half time (where the markets have known results).

There can sometimes be a delay during busy periods due to an influx of bets for highly popular events, in which case this time period is extended.

At all times BetVictor endeavour to have bets settled as soon as possible. At peak times such as weekend evenings when there may be a large increase in markets passing through the settlement system they do ask for patience as there will be unavoidable delays as the settlements are “queuing” and waiting for confirmation of results through an automated system.

Is my BetVictor account secure?

BetVictor recognise that online security is an area of vital importance to all its customers and no stone is left unturned in the search to make your betting experience as safe and secure as possible.

Their internet service operates a raft of security measures including fully encrypted data transfer and multiple redundant servers to ensure that all customer funds and personal details are stringently protected.

Every card that is submitted to BetVictor is subjected to a series of comprehensive online checks with their bankers to confirm its validity.

Do BetVictor offer free bets?

They have various promotional offers available, from their sportsbook sign up bonus offered to new customers to other on site and on-going offers.

They do not generally offer loyalty based bonus bets, however the amount you deposit, wager or lose will be a contributing factor to any bonus that they might offer as a goodwill gesture.

In order to receive offers that their Marketing Team consider will be of interest to you, please ensure that you have opted in to receive Email or SMS. Any offers that are currently available will be sent to you via email if you are on their mailing list, sent by SMS or advertised on their website.

Current offers can be seen on the Offers tab, under Available.

Why has my bet been rejected?

If you are struggling to place your bet successfully it means your bet is being rejected; this can occur for a number of reasons, some of them being:

– Price amendment – A price change has occurred meaning the previous odds are no longer available
– Rejected by their Traders – Traders are unable to accept your bet and may offer it at reduced odds or a smaller stake
– Insufficient funds – Balance is too low to cover the bet
– Passed the cut off point – Event has started and pre event betting is no longer available
– Related bet – The outcome of one selection may influence the outcome of another in a multiple
– Failed deposit – The deposit is rejected when you try to pay at the same time as placing your bet
– Singles only used in a multiple bet – Some special bets cannot be added into multiples.

Is BetVictor a fully licensed gambling operator?

BetVictor Limited (formerly Victor Chandler International Limited), (“BetVictor” or “We”), trading as BetVictor, is established in and is a fully licensed operator by the Government of Gibraltar to undertake online and telephone betting and online gaming.

BetVictor at all times comply with all applicable regulations of the GBGC in relation to the use of the site by individuals located in Great Britain. The regulations of the GBGC do not apply to use of this site from outside Great Britain.

BetVictor at all times comply with all applicable laws in Gibraltar and are regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.

How easy to the eye is the BetVictor website?

The BetVictor site is very nice on the front page with a dark black, grey and blue theme. What we found though was that it looked quite congested once you entered a set of markets.

There is a lot of underlining of markets, and of course it is intended to make the user experience easier but it just adds to the complexity. There is a lot of white space which in normal web design is good, but it leads to sections being blocked together and not intuitive for the user to find what they are looking for.

Of course this is just our view and some people may find this appealing.

In terms of additional content then one superb feature of the site is the “Bet Calculator” which you can find via a link in the footer of the page or below the main menu. We have to say this is the best calculator we have seen online. Don’t know how to work out a place Lucky 15? then BetVictor is your friend. The tool has tons of built in bets. All you have to do is click a button and then add in your stake and results and it spits out a return.

You can work out win, EW and combination bets for multiple selections.

Does BetVictor offer competitive odds or the best odds in a certain sport?

BetVictor have a very competitive odds offer with an overall margin across all sports of 4.5% but where they really shine is on football betting.

They have always been at the forefront of football betting, which is reflected in the average margin being just 2.5%, they are definitely in the top 10 bookmakers when it comes to football betting, especially the Premier League.

On other sports they have a strong set of margins on US sports with Baseball and Ice Hockey trading at just 4.1% and American Football at 4.2%.

How good is the market coverage and selection of bets on BetVictor?

Although their odds on football are very good, the range of markets is weaker than on other sportsbooks. Where we see 200 markets plus on Premier League games with the bigger bookmakers, on BetVictor this is usually around 75-100 individual markets on each game.

Where in one department they are weaker, in the range of bets they offer they are stronger including: the recently added #PriceItUp where they offer 5 different short price markerts on each football match. It includes a combination of scores, cards, corners and goals.

So you can pick out a different scenario and build out a short price accumulator. This is a great bet for punters who like to look at statistics as many of these markets would have strong historical statistics and data for each element.

In terms of general bets they offer all types of multiples including some other bets you might not heard of, a few of these include:

Six Shooter

Six golfers are grouped together for betting purposes only. They are each priced to return the lowest score over one round. There is at least one six-shooter for each round of play throughout the tournament. Dead-heat rules apply.


A Trixie is a multiple bet consisting of 4 bets with 3 selections. The bet breakdown is 3 doubles and 1 treble.

Minute to win it

In order to win, you must correctly select whether there will be Goal, Corner, Throw In or Free Kick within the stated minute. (the stated minute being the minute displayed on the Minute to Win It coupon “from” time til “to” time). Minute one is the period between 0:00 and 0:59 seconds, minute 2 is 1:00 to 1:59, minute 3 is 2:00 and 2:59 and so on up to and including 89:00 to 89:59 at which point the market is then concluded.

A few different bets to increase the enjoyment of your sports betting.

How good is In Play betting on BetVictor?

One really nice aspect of the BetVictor In-play interface is that they have split the action up into three distinct sections:

Live now
Coming up in the next 3 hours
Coming up in the next 12 hours

So it is easy to plan your betting for the day

The interface itself is similar to the sportsbook layout in terms of color styling but is much more intuitive to use with less clutter. All markets are easy to find.

What selection of bonuses and re-occurring promotions does BetVictor have?

The BetVictor sign up offer is a very good one. You can sign up for a new account and place a bet of £10 or more at odds of evens (2.00) or greater.

You must do this within 7 days of opening your account

What you get
£10 Free Bet – Any event
£10 Free Bet – In-Play only
£10 Free Bet – 3 folds or greater
£10 Free Bet – 5 folds or greater
£10 Free Bet – Virtual Sports
£10 Free Casino token.

What is great about this offer is that you have no wagering requirements on the sports betting portion of the bonus. The casino bonus does have a wagering requirement of 40x.

For all you football punters, you will love Golden Goal:

Pick a player.
Pick a minute.
Pick the final Score.

This is a free to enter promotion and gives you the chance to win up to £25,000. Just use your football knowledge and skills to be in with a chance of winning this jackpot every weekend.

How easy is it to deposit and withdraw funds with an BetVictor account?

Depositing funds is very easy and straightforward with BetVictor but withdrawals take some time. This is becuase BetVictor have an internal team that has to authorise all transactions under an anti money laundering and bank verification process they run internally, so they are not instant. To make a withdrawal can take an extra day compared to other online sportsbooks.

The following timescales below will give you a general idea of how long you can expect to wait before any withdrawals reach your account from your BetVictor account:

Credit/Debit Cards: 3-6 business days*
E-Wallets (Paypal, Neteller, Moneybookers, etc.): 1- 3 business days*
BACS (UK Only): 3 – 5 business days*
Telegraphic Transfer: 1 – 10 business days*

*Does not include bank holidays or weekends. All payment requests must be approved by their Security Department before they are processed by their Payments Team. Withdrawals are therefore not immediate, there will be a period of “holding” before transactions are released.

How friendly and fast is the BetVictor customer service and live chat service?

Having seen some bad reviews of the chat and customer service we can say this was not the case during our tests. The agents we dealt with certainly knew their stuff when it came to questions about football and horse racing, we did not check other sports.

Also the agents were friendly and courteous during the conversations, even when we mentioned the fact that we had seen a number of bad reviews. Agents seemed to answer honestly and professionally.

Can you trust BetVictor?

BetVictor was spawned from the renowned bookmaker Victor Chandler who was one of the longest serving rails bookmakers at racetracks up and down the country in the UK.

They are licensed by the Gibralter Gambling Commission and are also an IBAS registered bookmaker.

Over the last six months we have noticed some negative reviews about BetVictor and it is something we are looking at here at BoomakerAdvisor before we give any final recommendation on the trustworthiness of the sportsbook.
