New Customer Bonus: Bet £5 Get £30
What New Customers Get
Customers signing up for a brand new Betvictor account, are eligible for the bookmaker’s new customer bonus. That bonus is worth a total of £30, split across sportsbook 2x £10 free bets and a £10 slots bonus. With a value of 600% on the trigger bet it’s a sweet deal.
How To Release Bonus
In order to release and be able to use their £30 worth of bonus funds, a brand new Betvictor customer must create their account, make a deposit, opt in to the new customer promotion when prompted and then place a qualifying sportsbook bet.
Such a bet must be worth at least £5, be placed at odds of evens (2.0) or greater and be placed within seven days of the customer having opened their new account.
How To Withdraw
If and when any winnings result from the use of the free bets, those winnings will not include the return of the free bet stake itself. The winnings which are returned, however, are able to be withdrawn immediately if so desired.
The £5 slots bonus funds, on the other hand, are subject to wagering requirements before any withdrawals are possible. A customer must have wagered an amount equal to at least 20 times the initial bonus amount (£100).
There is also a max win of £250 attached to the slots side of the bonus. Full T&C’s apply, see Betvictor website for details.
Key Features of the Betvictor Mobile App
Just like the other major online bookmakers, Betvictor have clearly devoted a lot of time and attention to their mobile app. The result is a sleek, easy on the eye example which allows punters to quickly and easily place all kinds of wagers with the minimum of fuss. Those bets can be accessed in a number of user-friendly ways, with major sports having a direct link from the home page, ‘trending bets’ always featured on that same page and a full A-Z list of available sports accessible via just one tap.
In short, the app has a number of outstanding features that punters are sure to love:
- Popular and ‘trending bets’ can be added to a betslip with one tap from the app’s main page, whilst particular sports and events can be easily located via the app’s attractive and intuitive interface.
- An excellent in-play betting service forms a major part of the app and offers a wide array of different live betting markets.
- Live horse races from the UK and Ireland, as well as races from South Africa, can be streamed live through the app as long as the punter in question has placed a bet worth at least £1 on the race they wish to watch.
- Ongoing and event-specific promotions and offers are regularly run by Betvictor and can be quickly and easily claimed through their mobile app.
- Betvictor’s innovative ‘Betfinder’ tool provides an easy and fun way to find the perfect horse for you to back, by allowing you to select a range of different criteria.
Licence & Company Info
Betvictor Ltd is an independent bookmaker which has roots dating back to the opening of the Walthamstow Stadium greyhound track in 1931 by William Chandler. From those origins, a bookmaking company was eventually founded in 1946 and was named after its initial chairman, Victor Chandler, who was one of William’s five sons. A number of name changes occurred through the years, before Betvictor was adopted in 2012.
In 1998, the company which had always remained based in the UK, was moved offshore and established new headquarters in Gibraltar. It is for that reason that the company is today licensed both by the UK Gambling Commission (number 000-039576-R-319370-007) and by the Government of Gibraltar. It is the former licence which allows Betvictor to serve UK based customers, whilst the latter caters for international punters.
What Users Think?!
On both the App Store and the Play Store, the Betvictor app has a rating of between four and five stars (AppStore 4.5 & PlayStore 4.3), with the majority of reviews having provided a five star rating.
The most common reason given by users for those lofty ratings is the user-friendliness of Betvictor on moible and how simple it makes it to find and to place bets.
In each case, the app’s overall rating is general pulled down by a handful of one star ratings. More often than not, those ratings are given by users who have a problem with the terms and conditions or requirements attached to Betvictor’s new customer bonus and who, therefore, seem not to have read them before signing up.
What We Think?!
Does our review align with what users think?
Betvictor are a bookmaker that we use regularly and often recommend to other punters. Their mobile app offering, too, is excellent and that is why we have awarded it our highest possible five star rating.
It is clear to see that Betvictor have taken loads of time and effort over their apps’ user interfaces, and the result is a mobile offering which is unquestionably one of the easiest to use and quickest to learn.
The Betvictor app, too, offers an outstanding breadth of sport, event and market options which essentially mirrors those available via the bookmaker’s desktop site. Those options also extend to in-play betting, which is very well catered for through a dedicated in-play section included within the app. On top of all of that, are innovative extra features like the company’s ‘Betfinder’ tool for locating horse racing wagers.
One slight weakness, as compared to the apps of some of their major competitors, comes in the area of live streaming. It is only horses races that can be streamed by Betvictor customers, after all, and only as and when a punter has placed a bet on the given race. This is also true of Betvictor’s desktop site, however, so is not really a criticism that can be levelled specifically at the bookmaker’s mobile apps.
Is the Betvictor Android App Different to their iOS App?
Aside from the fact that both operating systems have their own version of the app, there isn’t really a functional difference between them. Each have the same main features and offer the same excellent mobile betting service to their users. Where the apps can differ, however, is in some minor elements of their design as they have been designed to best suit the different devices on which they can be displayed.
Is There a Blackberry App?
As things stand, there is not a Blackberry specific app for users of Blackberry operated mobile devices to download. Fortunately, however, the Betvictor website can be quickly and easily accessed by visiting betvictor.com via such a device’s web browser and that site is designed to be virtually identical to the bookmaker’s downloadable apps.
Is There a Windows Mobile App?
In the same way as there isn’t a specific downloadable app for Blackberry users, there is also not a dedicated Windows Mobile app. As we mentioned above, however, Betvictor’s mobile site is designed to be just as user-friendly and comprehensive as their downloadable apps, and can be accessed simply by heading to betvictor.com in your device’s web browser.
How Can I Fund My Account?
As things stand, Betvictor currently only allow deposits via debit or credit card through their mobile apps, with a wider range of deposit options available through their desktop site. To deposit by card, all you need to do is to head to the ‘My Account’ area of the app, then select ‘Add new card’ and enter your card details. Once you’ve done that, you can select the ‘Deposit’ option from the ‘My Account’ page and make a deposit simply by inputting how much you wish to deposit and the CV2 number from your chosen card.
Can I Self-Exclude on the App?
Major, respected bookmakers such as Betvictor take responsible gambling very seriously, and as such it is indeed possible to self-exclude through the app. In order to do so, you need simply access the Betvictor help centre and search of ‘self-exclusion’. That will take you to a page featuring a link to a self-exclusion form, which you can then fill out in order to complete the self-exclusion process.
Alternatively, you can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to the company’s customer service staff via their live chat facility.
What Languages are Available?
The Betvictor mobile app is only available to download in English. There is an option within the app’s main menu, however, which allows you to change the language of the app to German. This can be done by opening the main menu, tapping ‘Settings’, and then choosing ‘Deutsch’ from the languages drop down menu.
What Security Measures Are In Place?
Betvictor, just like all major online bookmakers, understand the importance of cyber security to all customers. For that reason, their mobile apps are password protected and all financial details and transactions carried out through the apps are protected by industry standard encryption. Identity verification and other similar processes may also be carried out from time to time, in order to further ensure the validity of transactions and thus the safety and security of punters and their funds.
