Are we showing our age in kicking off this review by saying that we still remember the days when BetVictor was named after good old Victor Chandler? To be fair, the man himself probably doesn’t mind too much as he seems to be doing pretty well for himself and made the occasional appearance in television adverts and other media up until 2014 when he sold the company. Far be it from us, also, to feel sorry for someone that ranks comfortably within the top 500 on the Sunday Times Rich List! The guy was a visionary too, having been one of the first to see the potential in offshore gambling, and also in online play. The man himself may be gone, but the BetVictor spirit remains and there is every chance that the result may be one of the best UK mobile casinos around right now.
Given the founder’s passion for offshore gambling, it is no surprise to see that the core online and mobile operations of this brand continue to be based in Gibraltar. As the law dictates, the casino experience is also licensed and regulated by the UK’s Gambling Commission, so players will be playing legally and, more importantly, safely when they decide to create an account and play here.
Games and Software
Our memories of this brand may be good in one regard, but they are not perfect in another and we cannot quite remember which developer initially powered the casino experience at BetVictor originally. Fortunately, that is by the by as nowadays the chance are that you can name a major game developer and they will be on offer here. While Ladbrokes and William Hill stick with some of the more popular names, BetVictor goes all out when it comes to rivalling even the likes of Leo Vegas when it comes to the quantity of games that can be played. The online site boasts well over a thousand slots and while that number is stripped back for mobile compatibility, it does give players a great insight into what to expect here.
Microgaming and NetEnt lead the way when it comes to gaming entertainment here and there is probably no better pairing in the world to kick off with. As noted, you will be hard pressed to find a developer that has not partnered up with BetVictor, and games from everyone from IGT and Aristocrat to Novomatic and Blueprint Gaming prop up the selection here. The games are well laid out, we just wish that there was a search function because there are so many of them! There are plenty of table games on offer here too, including live ones, and so players should have no trouble at all when it comes to finding their perfect action.
A Warm Mobile Welcome
The BetVictor welcome bonus is simple but highly effective, and all revolves around a player’s first deposit at the casino. Drop up to £100 into your casino account and you will be rewarded with a 200% match on it, with up to £200 extra on offer. The turnover requirements are certainly manageable, with players only needing to play through it all 35 times on the slots in order to make a withdrawal on those funds. The action does not end there either, as players will also receive 200 free spins on selected slots and, between them, these bonuses can add up to the perfect start for players.
Perks of Playing There
We can only assume that our enthusiasm for BetVictor and the mobile casino itself is infectious, as this really is one of the best places that players could hope to play at in the UK. Even in the face of competition from Ladbrokes and William Hill, and perhaps even Paddy Power and Bet365, this could well be the best combination of sports betting and casino gaming that players could possibly hope to find. And a combination it is too, as even the mobile app, available to iOS users, combines both activities within a single app while also making it easy to ignore the other if you have no interest in it. PayPal support, a complete lack of withdrawal limits and some of the fastest pay-outs in the industry ensure that BetVictor could well be the best of the big names to play with on your phone or tablet right now!
