Bet Victor's free bet offer

Bet Victor operates a single stage free bet offer for new online sportsbook customers. The maximum possible free bet under the offer is £25 for sports betting. A summary of the offer follows below, but please ensure that you check the full terms of Bet Victor's free bet offer on their site.

Qualifying bet: Bet Victor offers a free bet to the value of your first bet, up to a maximum of £25.
The qualifying bet must be placed within 30 days of account opening. If the initial bet contains less than four selections, at least one of them must have odds of evens or greater. The even odds restriction doesn't apply to initial bets containing four or more selections. Combined odds don't qualify and the offer doesn't apply to the total value of a betting slip - only to the value of the first bet (which may comprise of one or more selections). See our betting glossary for an explanation of these definitions.

Free bets are credited automatically within two business days of the relevant bets being settled, with no need to submit any claims. They are shown in Bet Victor accounts as Promo Cash balances, which can be used for any bet during the bet slip stage. Promo Cash bets must be placed separately to real money bets. Any profit from a winning bet placed using Promo Cash (over and above the value of the stake) will be added to the real money balance, but Promo Cash stakes will not be returned.

The free bet (Promo Cash) must be used within 30 days of being credited to the sportsbook account, otherwise it will expire automatically.

Bet Victor live media streaming

Live streaming services available via Bet Victor's betting site include radio commentaries, videos and result updates. Sportsbook clients can also watch live video coverage of horse races from the UK and Ireland subject to betting a minimum stake of £1 on the race they want to watch. Streaming video is accessed - once the bet has been placed - by clicking the TV icon button on the racecard or alternatively by using the Video drop-down menu within the Live Media bar. Replays of horse races are also available to view online at Bet Victor, with no accompanying betting requirements.

In-running betting at Bet Victor

The bookmaker offers in-running betting on selected events (whereby bets can continue to be placed on events that have already started, but have yet to finish). For details of available markets, see the In-Running Diary link in Bet Victor's left hand menu column.

Placing bets with Bet Victor

Bet Victor's online sportsbook is fairly easy to navigate. After clicking on a sport in the left hand menu, users are presented with a choice of betting markets. For sports with a large number of markets (eg football), the listings site may begin with links to Quick Coupons (eg today's matches, tomorrow's matches, etc). These links aim to improve user convenience by providing fast access to some of the most popular and/or imminent events. Selections can be added to the bet slip (located towards the top right) by simply clicking on the odds button for your chosen outcome. Chosen odds buttons change to blue to show that they've been added. Clients can then choose their bet type(s) (single and/or multiple bets) by entering stakes into the relevant sections of Bet Victor's bet slip. The bet slip automatically shows the total stake and potential returns at the bottom, just above the "Place bets now" button.

Bet Victor's best odds guarantee

The betting site offers a best odds guarantee on all UK and Irish horse racing to online clients. If clients take an early price or board price, Bet Victor will pay out at the starting price (SP) if this turns out to be higher. The guarantee applies to the first £500 of any stake on single or multiple bets up to an overall total stake of £500. Again, please be sure to check Bet Victor's website before betting, as the terms of the best odds guarantee may have changed since the date of our review.
