BetVictor Casino Review - My Experience
As a long-time player at BetVictor I am clearly a fan but it's not suitable for every player as you will see later. BetVictor casino really upped it's game in 2013 with the addition of no less than 4 different live dealer casinos and an expanse of slot games offering content from IGT, Aristocrat, Novomatic and Microgaming among others.
- Four Live Casinos + 'RNG' Table Games
- IGT, Aristocrat & Novomatic (Gaminator) slot games
- Net Entertainment & Microgaming games
- Expansive mobile casino
- Licenced in Gibraltar
- Fastish cash-outs but with a 24hr reverse period
- All games in no-downoad, instant play format

Back around 2008, when I first signed up an account, BetVictor was known as Victor Chandler (the geezer who owns it and appears in their TV ads) and their online casino was good but a bit of a mish-mash. It wasn't really helped by the fact they then divided the slots out into a stand-alone product called the Spin Room to be honest but that's now back under the main BetVictor site umbrella so all is well again!
BetVictor is a very well-known UK bookmaker and like other bookmakers, took a while to understand just how online casinos should work. Now they have a grasp on that, they have a very good product which in my opinion is only really rivalled for diversity by Bet365's casino, although the latter doesn't have quite the same range of live dealer options (Check out my Bet365 review for more information).
The GamesThere are two areas where BetVictor casino really stands out: they have one of the best live casinos (arguably the best) of any online casino with seveal dealer options and a very strong range of popular slot machines. They do have all the usual games too: blackjack, roulette, keno and video poker but there are other casinos featured in my reviews section which offer more choice in those areas. For video poker, you couldn't beat 32Red Casino for example. But if slots or live dealers are your bag: betVictor is the nuts.
There are 4 live dealer casinos at BetVictor casino to choose from. These are from different software providers and offer a different vibe and different dealers so each player can get the atmosphere that suits them best. Some dealers are chattier, some rooms are darker, some are quieter: for a fuller overview of each, see the live casinos overview which goes into more detail.
Slots players are spoiled for choice. If you play in land-based casinos then you will love the fact that games like Cleopatra, Book Of Ra, Lucky Lady's Charm, Where's The Gold and many other favorites from IGT, Novomatic and Aristocrat sit alongside popular online-only slot games from Microgaming (Tombraider, Battlestar Galactica) and Net Entertainment. As a slots player myself, the really good thing with BetVictor casinos'range of games is that they have cherry-picked the best games from each provider and ditched a lot of the "filler" content many casinos have. The only thing missing right now is the WMS Gaming slots that are found at Jackpot Party (check out my Slots Magic casino review for more information). Everything else is here.
Finally, I have to mention BetVictor's mobile casino. Initially a fairly average offering, this has now really taken shape and has a great selectuon of games. Probably best suited to tablets than phones right now (because of limited screen sizes) but it has definitely become one of the best mobile casinos out there even if playing on a smartphone isn't for everyone (personally I find it way too fiddly).
Customer ServiceIf you have read many of my other reviews and articles here at Top Choice Casinos you will know by now that I am a stickler for fast cashouts and that I hate the Reverse Pending option that many online casinos employ. Until recently, BetVictor casino didn't have this but neither did it allow you to set deposit limits, another thing that winds me up. They have now finally sorted the latter but in adding this functionality, they also implemented a reverse pending time up to 24 hours.
Obviously this development means their once lightning-fast cashouts are no longer as fast as competitors like Paddy Power or the fast-growing Novomatic and Aristocrat games destination MyBet Casino but their games may well make up for this...depends on your view. BetVictor supports most popular eWallets and all types of debit and credit card and they are generally a hassle-free casino too with ID requests only coming after you cross the £1,000 threshold. There is also a very good single-wallet banking back-end so you don't have to mess about transferring money between products anymore.
