This site is often referred to in the Betting World as “The Gentlemen’s Betting Site” Victor Chandler is chairman of the company that bears his name, Victor Chandler International. He was one of the first bookmakers too invest in online Gambling particularly online casinos and poker, as well as being the first to move his gaming business offshore. He was in some ways responsibly for Gordon Brown scrapping the horrible 9% tax on betting. Who remembers those days hey? What a pain that was.
Victor Chandler currently sponsors Nottingham Forrest and in true bookie style offered to pay for the following season ticket for every season ticket holder who signed up for an account if Notts Forrest won the Championship. At the time Forrest was 40/1, but after 18 games unbeaten they were lying 2nd. Unfortunately for the fans Forrest slipped away and finally lost in a play off semi final to Blackpool.
The site itself at Victor Chandler is very sleek and smooth. The main page works very well with all you need but at the same time not appearing too cramped. The highlight for me is the media centre with live commentary and reports with its Racing Radio. It also has a racing replay centre which is excellent if you’re betting through your work day and want to see the TV coverage of how you won your wonga once you got home. Race replays are available for all UK & Irish races covered by ATR and are only available ten minutes after the race ends. You can also watch the races live if you have staked a £1 bet or more. This is also streamed to your mobile through their app. They also have numerous sports to bet on but Horse racing is covered excellently with plenty of offers.
A quick update for all United Kingdom customers Victor Chandler now goes under the banner of Bet Victor.
