BetVictor offers good in-running betting opportunities plus a good range of fun (and potentially profitable) special betting propositions.
The BetVictor web site is easy to use. No particularly outstanding features although there is a useful tool to help you to decide which banking option is best for you based on your geographical region & legal jurisdiction. It's easy to find & place bets or to participate in live betting.
As well as the traditional sports like horseracing, greyhounds, golf & football, BetVictor offers a fairly wide range of bets tailored to specific markets. Fancy a punt on Scandanavian Bandy?
All new customers who bet £25, get £25 free. (Or currency equivalent) It's easy - just open an account with BetVictor and make a deposit (using any of the payment options).
