The ‘gentleman’s bookie’ has grown significantly since it was set up as a small family business back in 1946. Victor Chandler, now known online as Bet Victor, doesn’t claim to be a specialist in one particular sport and its ‘Jack of all trades’ approach means there’s always plenty to choose from.
Sports Betting Markets
As you can see, BetVictor’s sportsbook is substantial with bets offered on all of the following sports.
Baseball, basketball, bowls, boxing, UFC, cricket, cycling, darts, football, futsal, Gaelic Games, golf, greyhounds, handball, horseracing, ice hockey, motor racing, motorcycling, Olympic games, rugby league, rugby union, snooker, speedway, tennis, US horseracing, skiing and volleyball.
Their in-play markets are varied and with football, golf, snooker, tennis and horseracing featuring heavily there’s plenty to put your money on.
BetVictor.com has recently received a facelift and as a result is now one of the cleanest looking sports betting websites out there.
Users will be immediately drawn to the top six biggest markets and events being offered via the striking rotating image banner at the top of the page, but navigation to other sports is very simple too.
Simplicity is the key to the BetVictor website so there isn’t quite the range of extras you’d get with other bookmakers but what this site is great at is making betting online easy and fast. However, to accompany their in-play features you can listen to live commentary from horseracing in the UK and Ireland and the biggest football matches of the week as well as the audio feed from Sky Sports Soccer Saturday.
This traditional British bookie is at the top of the tree when it comes to football and major sports betting. Through their simple online betting portal they attract customers from over 100 countries who are privy to some of the best fixed odds on all the major sporting events.
Sports Betting Markets
Compared to some other online bookmakers Coral don’t offer the widest range of sporting events to choose from, but what they do offer is a huge choice of betting options within the most popular sports in the UK and USA such as football, cricket, rugby and NFL. Their list includes:
American football, baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, cycling, darts, football, Formula 1, golf, greyhounds, horseracing, ice hockey, motorbikes, Olympics, rugby league, rugby union, snooker, tennis and volleyball.
Their website looks and performs well with quick links to football, horseracing and greyhounds along with the popular ‘Goals, Goals, Goals’ coupon.
The rotating banner at the top of the page highlights the top five betting events at any given time and all other sports are easier to navigate to down the left hand side of the page. ‘Bet in Play’ is also easy to use and understand if you’re new to online sports betting – breaking down events into ‘Live Now’, ‘Next 3 Hours’ and ‘Later’.
Other features include Coral’s in-house radio feed covering all major domestic football matches, horseracing and greyhound racing and there’s also Sky Sports News Radio and live audio of Soccer Saturday with Jeff Stelling.
Coral do provide a striking interactive Flash cricket scoreboard with live updates on most major matches and the website also hosts a neat F1 microsite that comes to life between March and November.
