Betvictor are one of the market leaders for football betting. With easy to bet on coupons, great odds and some fantastic ongoing promotions such as both teams to score acca insurance, the Betvictor app is the place to bet!
Bet Victor Android App review
How do you download the Bet Victor app?
Once you’ve registered you’ll need to install the app on your home screen, there’s no download required for this.
Just hit your menu key from the Betvictor mobile homepage and the “add shortcut to home” link. This is our recommended option versus downloading the app on Google Play as it takes barely any space and you’ll never need to update it or have any bugs.
The home page of the app is one of the best compared to some other Android betting apps. You see the latest live scores for in-play betting and the “top links” for the most popular pages.
These are usually where you’ll find the football coupons with the “today’s match” and “tomorrows match” coupons showing alongside the very popular both teams to score coupons.
On the football tab, you’ll find the days enhanced odds bets with a couple of bets or accas boosted every day. Check out the stats behind these before you back them to make sure you’re happy to. They don’t just boost them to be kind and give you money!
Scroll down further and you’ll find the price it up section, we covered this in more depth below. You can see the latest and most popular picks here as well as quick links to the upcoming games that are included in this market.
Football bettors will quickly see why we rated this as the UK’s top app for football betting.
If you tweet using #Priceitup then Betvictor will price the bet up for you followed by a link of where to back it. You can find other peoples by going to the price it up section on individual matches. These cover things like goals, cards, corners, and scoring from outside the area.
If you’re backing BTTS then Betvictor are the company to bet with as they offer BTTS acca insurance- Back a 5 fold or higher and get your stake back as a free bet if your acca loses by one result.
Betvictor have recently added more specialist markets to give something different for their customers to bet on. These include the increasingly popular man of the match markets for most live tv games and the “who scored” markets for highest-rated players. These markets go off the whoscored.com rankings for each player, there’s also markets for most tackles in a game and most shots on target. All these markets can be found at the bottom of the match markets on the Betvictor android app although they are not usually priced up until the day of the match.
Another new addition for the big Premier League, European and international matches is “assist” betting markets, this is an interesting market to target players who create a lot of chances. The odds for popular players, such as De Bruyne or Firmino, are usually around 5/2 which is great value, although it is a tricky market to call at times.
Betvictor are the only company to offer assist betting. To find these market you’ll need to scroll right to the bottom of the market’s list on the Betvictor android app.
Horse racing – Whilst this app is the market leader for football betting it is more middle of the road for Horse race betting. Like most, it offers live streaming from at the races when you bet at least £1 on any race. The advantage about the Betvictor android app is that the stream is shown in full screen allowing you a decent view of the race, some others have it integrated with the markets meaning a much smaller screen to watch.
Newly added and a great improvement to the app is the Bet Victor Horse finder. You can apply a set of filters to identify horses running that meet your criteria. You can filter by the following options
- Star rating – 1 to 5 stars
- Selections – Won at today’s course, won over today’s distance, Improving horses.
- Odds – Short, medium or long odds.
As you add the sections the green button below updates to show the number of horses available. As a test I’ve gone for horses that have won over the distance, at the course that are rated at 4 stars or higher at medium odds – This has produced 2 horses for the day at 5/1 and 8/1. This is worth following over time to see how the horses perform.
You also get the full form view for each horse covering trainer, jockey, form, age, weight, star rating and the usual time form write up.
Betvictor casino on Android and mobile
Another strong point of the Betvictor android app is the built-in casino app, you can play your casino games from the same account without ever leaving the app.
There’s only one other Android betting app that offers this and that is the Coral android app, which isn’t quite as good as Betvictor for the casino.
You can select from Blackjack, European Roulette, Baccarat on the standard table games in the casino. There are loads of games to choose from and they come from various different software providers so you can find which blackjack game is your favourite.
You can filter by gaming company too so if you already know you prefer IGT games you can just select to see their games.
Here are all the available providers on offer –
This is always my go-to part of any casino app we test, for me, this is the best way to play casino games on your mobile. I’m not a huge fan of playing roulette on a graphics software and much prefer being able to see a physical wheel actually spinning when I’ve got money on it.
The low stake options are decent on mobile too with £5 Blackjack tables and roulette from a minimum of 50p – These are correct at the time of writing this review and are subject to change at any point by Bet Victor.
Again the range of slots can be sorted by the different operators so you can find the games you like quickly. If you are new to the casino you’ll be able to filter the slots for the most popular games, which is a great place to start.
Conclusions on the Betvictor android app– Overall we were very impressed with Betvictor, the odds offered are fantastic, the app is simple to use and well designed. We like the addition of the other apps to keep the offers coming as well as having casino games built into the one app.
If you bet on Football then the Betvictor is 100% the app you need, for horse racing and other sports there are better options available.
About Betvictor – Betvictor previously known as Victor Chandler and were sold to a Michael Tabor in March 2014 and went about changing the name to “Betvictor limited”. The company was originally formed in 1946 by William Chandler as an on-course bookmaker and was later take over by his son, Victor Chandler senior. After the death of Victor Senior in 1976 Victor junior took over and in the late 90s took his bookmakers off the race course and setup online.
Bet Victor was the first company to relocate to Gibraltar in 1999 to avoid the UK’s gambling tax, now 90% of UK bookmakers are based in Gibraltar. Victor Chandler junior is widely regarded as being responsible for Gordon Brown abolishing the gambling tax laws in the 2001 budget.
Betvictor iPhone app review
Football betting – There are currently four (yes four) Betvictor apps to choose from on iPhone, we’ll mainly be covering the sports app in our review. The iPhone version of the app has some good features not available on the mobile site. These include adding favourites that are saved in the Betvictor iPhone app whether you’re logged in when you add them or not. The speed this allows you to find the football leagues, race courses or other sports you like is very impressive especially if you bet on some more random sports.
You can access your favourites in two ways, firstly in the menu on the left-hand side menu under the account services. Secondly they can be found on the individual sports menu – for example, if you go to the football menu you’ll find the leagues you’ve selected at the top.
You can add or remove favourites by tapping on the star. Under favourites in the football menu you’ll find the daily “bet boosts”, these are some enhanced offers for you to mull over and are usually an anytime goalscorer and win boost. You will get some decent prices on these so its well worth checking out!
Other sports – As usual with these apps there’s a wealth of sports to choose, from the popular (football, horse racing, tennis) to the (quite frankly ridiculous) virtual cycling betting! Betvictor sponsor many sporting events including The World matchplay darts and the Welsh open snooker. With their sponsorship, you’ll find more best prices and more enhanced offers. For the darts fans there’s also a Betvictor darts app and we’d expect a snooker app at some point soon in line with that sponsorship.
Another plus point is the security of the app, there’s the addition of a 4 digit pin code to access the app and face ID where available.
In summary – The app is one of the better betting apps for iPhone although it does not feature in our top 5 iPhone betting apps page.
The design is great and the additional apps are a great add on but currently, the load speed of markets lags a little on iPhone compared to just using the Betvictor mobile site on android for example.
Betvictor iPad app review
We’ve been really impressed with the Betvictor app on iPad and really like a number of features that are specific to this version. The main one you’ll notice it the ability to add “favourites” on the left-hand side, this gives you the option of having quick links to your favourite sports or competitions – as shown below.
So now when I want to quickly find a market then I can just get straight to it from the home screen. Once you’ve used this app for a couple of weeks you’ll really get a feel for how quickly you can get your bets on.
Live streaming – The app doesn’t have as wide a range of sports as some and currently just has horse racing from at the races. If you place a bet of at least £1 per race you’ll be able to watch a stream without leaving the app. Again this is where the app is handy, any live streams you’ve qualified for are shown under the “live streams” tab on the left-hand side under “my account”. As you can see the stream is full screen, unlike bet365, and is of reasonable quality.
Betvictor are quite a big name in horse racing with their sponsorship of the Queen Mother championship chase at the Cheltenham festival. They have previously sponsored the “Victor Chandler Chase at Ascot, widely seen as a market for the Cheltenham festival but this has now been taken over by Betfair.
Summary – If we had to describe the iPad app in one word it would be “handy”. Its a great app for placing quick bets on your favourite markets and we like the layout of the app. It’s good to see all the menus and your bet slip constantly but still have a crisp simple design for the middle column. This is an advantage against some apps that have too much information and constant promotions on the home page.
Betvictor Blackberry app review
With there being no download needed to install the Betvictor app on your BB then you may think this site won’t be as good as the iPhone or iPad version, but you’d be wrong. We’ve tested and compared this against the other versions and they’re all identical in terms of design, performance, and offers.
The only way the Blackberry app differs is if you have a BB without a touch screen like the Curve, due to the lack of touch screen it’s very frustrating trying to navigate around using the joystick, but this is the case for all betting sites on none touch screen phones.
On the touch screen phones, the app is surprisingly quick to use, from the home page you can find quick links to the most popular sports (football, Horse racing & tennis). If you can’t see what you’re looking for then under the menu in the top right you’ll find a full A-Z of sports listed including virtual sports.
The app has the widest range of virtual sports that we have seen covering cycling, dog racing, football, horse racing, motor racing, speedway, and tennis. This is great if you’re into virtual betting or fancy having a bet on something you can watch when there’s not much else on.
As briefly mentioned above you can use your Betvictor account on your Blackberry to get into selected meetings at Kempton Park races (Middlesex) for free. All you need to do is show them your phone with it logged in to Betvictor and you’ll get in, a great excuse to go to the races for the day! (Click here to see upcoming free race days).
