Bet Victor Android App review
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 Betvictor 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.
BetVictor are currently the princepal betting partner of Lveirpool FC, but don’t let that put you off! You’ll find some enhanced prices and special markets for betting on Liverpool.
On the football tab, you’ll also 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 do 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. As we’re always saying if you’re betting on football then the Bet Victor android app is the app you need to be using.
Betvictor have recently added more specialist markets to the app 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 on Android. 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.
Other Betvictor apps – From the home page of the Betvictor app for android you can download their two other apps – Spin cast and instabet, these are APK files that you can download straight to your mobile or tablet. To download them you need to scroll to the bottom of the home page where you’ll find the links, make sure your phone or tab is open for 3rd party app (APK) downloads (you can do this in settings when prompted). (L-R Sports/ casino app, instabet, spincast, Darts)
Of the two the Instabet app is the best to use, its an app just for offers so what’s not to like! The app counts down to a daily enhanced price offer so you’ll need to keep an eye on the app to make sure you get the offers. They are usually big enhancements on football and are worth the wait, you’ll be able to back them for a maximum of £10. These offers can only be claimed on the instabet app and not directly on the Betvictor android app.
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 android app 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 you’re 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! The Betvictor iPhone app is one of the best to bet on for the events that they sponsor – 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 of Betvictor on iPhone is the security of the app, there’s the addition of a 4 digit pin code to access the app. You have to set this when you first log in and you’ll have to add it every-time you come out of the app and reopen it. This can feel a little annoying if your jumping between apps but it stops the chance of betting in your pocket or your kids/ mates placing bets without you knowing! Ready to get betting with Victor? Sign up below to get your free bet then get Betvictor on iPhone free from the app store – The app will need to be able to check your location before you start using it and there’s an option for push notifications – You’ll get around one a day on average.
Other apps – As well as the Betvictor iPhone app you have 3 other apps that you can download for free and use. These are the darts app as mentioned above, the instabet app and the spin cast app. The app lets you pick from the upcoming matches and spin for a selection on 3 markets – Home, draw or away, over and under goals markets and an anytime scorer and then calculates the odds. The default setting is for a £1 stake but you can increase this using the + & – buttons by the stake, for some reason you can go up to £99,999 – not that you would!
The other app worth downloading is the “instabet app” this gives you one or two special offers a day to bet on, usually with a maximum stake of £10 or £20. These are short term price boost that usually lasts around 15 minutes. With this in mind make sure you have push notifications turned on for this app so you don’t miss out. These offers are always well above the industry average price and can be doubles or singles.
In summary – The Betvictor iPhone 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. It’s still worth having the Betvictor app for iPhone especially alongside the instabet app for the amazing price offers you’ll get and if the speed improves it will be up there with the best sports betting apps.
Betvictor iPad app review
As mentioned above 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 Betvictor iPad 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.
Best odds – As you may have seen Betvictor’s current promotions are all around their best odds for football betting. You’ll see these adverts on Sky Sports, usually when the football is on or they often have pitch side adverts on at certain games. On the Betvictor iPad app, you’ll get all the same best odds as the desktop site and if you’re backing accas then this can really make a difference to your returns. The only possible downside to football betting on this app is the lack of a cash-out option that most others offer. Personally, we don’t like the cash out option as it is not weighted in your favour so this is no major issue to us!
About Betvictor – Previously known as Victor Chandler, Betvictor have been based in Gibraltar since 1999 like most gambling companies. As they operate in the UK they are licensed to do so by the UK gambling commission. With over 500,000 customers across 160 countries, Betvictor are one of the major players in sports betting worldwide.
Summary – If we had to describe the Betvictor 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. Its 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 Betvictor 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 Betvictor blackberry 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).
Other Betvictor apps – You may be aware that Betvictor have other apps available on both Android and iPhone, these are the instabet app and the Spin cast app. You can actually install these on your BB alongside the Betvictor blackberry app by getting the android APK file and installing it. This is actually quick and easy and the video below will show you how it’s done. To get to the APK go to the bottom of the home page and you’ll see the links to both the apps, then select “download for android” and the APK will install on your phone.
The spin cast app is brilliant if you like placing multiple bets on the same game or finding a fun bet for a match you are about to watch. You can select the outcome of the match (home, draw, away), an over or unders goals bet (2.5 or 3.5) and an anytime scorer from the possible starters for the match. You can then select your stake at the bottom, default is £1, and then place your bets when you are happy with your selections. If you can’ decide you can spin the reels and it will select an option at random for you, hence the name “spin cast”. As mentioned this isn’t built into the Betvictor Blackberry app but is a standalone app that you can side install on any BB following the steps on the video above. There is also a darts app but this is exclusively for i0s devices.
Account services – On your Blackberry you can get all the same account services as the i0s versions of the app. In settings, you can select between decimal and fractional odds, although fractional are referred to as “UK style odds” and decimals as “EU style odds” which is a little confusing compared to other apps. You can also turn quick bet on or off in settings, quick bet allows you to hold down your finger on an odd and your bet slip will open instantly, this is a great help if you’re betting in play where the odds change quickly. The minimum deposit on the Betvictor Blackberry app is the same as the desktop site which is £10 but you can only deposit using your debit or credit card on the mobile site or app. If you wish to use any other option, such as Neteller or PayPal, then you’ll need to do this via the desktop site or over the phone. Your balance will be instantly updated on the mobile site so you can place your bets as soon as the deposit is made, this is the same case for withdrawing your winnings.
