BetVictor is the gambling site formerly known as Victor Chandler or VC Bet. It is based in Gibraltar.
BetVictor has an excellent selection of odds for a wide range of events worldwide, including lower leagues and less-known contests for which odds can be hard to find elsewhere online.
Just like many other bookmakers based in Europe, BetVictor has an enormous amount of odds for association football. In August 2015, the odds comparison website Oddschecker hailed BetVictor as the bookmaker offering the best odds most often on the major European football leagues.
The welcome gift is a free £25 bet. This offer is valid regardless of whether you register from a computer, from a tablet or from a smartphone. Certain transaction methods will disqualify you from the welcome gift. More information can be found at the BetVictor site.
BetVictor offers live betting and is known for having quite generous odds for live betting.
There is a live streaming service available for BetVictor members. The events are commented in English, even when they take place in non-English speaking countries.
BetVictor has an app available for mobile betting. It is easy to download and use, and includes a live streaming feature. This means that you can watch horse racing events and association football games right on your smartphone or tablet.

About Victor Chandler and BetVictor
In 1946, William Chandler – the owner of Walthamstow Stadium in east London – founded a bookmaking company. The company was eventually inherited by William’s son Victor Chandler Sr., and when he suddenly passed away in 1974 his son Victor Chandler Jr. took over. This hailed the onset of a rapid expansion for the company.
In 1988, the company was moved to Gibraltar to avoid the UK gambling tax. In 2004, the company name was changed to VC Bet, but this only lasted for four years before the name was returned to Victor Chandler.
When Michael Tabor took over Victor Chandler International Limited, he renamed the company BetVictor Ltd.
