BetVictor has been online since, well, forever. Previously known as Victor Chandler Bookmakers, they have been operating betting shops in the U.K. for almost 100 years. They only renamed their business a few years ago to BetVictor. As a high street bookie, they operate a fairly good book, though like many of the same business they tend to aim their offerings at the more recreational punter, and try to limit professionals and consistent winners.
That appears to be the model for all the well known bookies, and I suppose it is why they are so sucessful.
They are properly licenced, with a licence from Gibraltar and one from the U.K. Gambling Commission for U.K. punters.
As you might expect, they have a range of online gambling sites aside from their sportsbook, and these include a poker room and a casino.
Their minimum deposit limits are among the lowest available from online bookmakers. At this time they do not accept players from the U.S.A.

BetVictor Minimum Stakes
The minimum bet amount in the sportsboook is just 5 pence, so you should be able to make your deposit go a long way.
Opening bonus for new customers
The current bonus deal for new customers is £30.00 in sports bonus funds once you make your first bet of £10 or more.
This £30 is free bonus funds, but it is not the same as free cash. You can use these funds to make bets. If you win any of those bets you will get the winnings in cash but the bonus funds will not be returned to you.
Once you open your account you have 7 days to make your first qualifying bet or the deal goes away. You must Opt In to this offer before you make that first bet.
Bear in mind that your first bet must be at odds of 2.0 (evens) or greater in order for you to qualify for this offer.
There are some terms on this offer which you can see here Bet £10 get £30 BetVictor Sports Bonus Terms.
The really tricky part of these terms is that some players that make their initial deposit using either Skrill or Neteller will not get this offer. For Skrill (Moneybookers) players from the Czech Republic, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK will not qualify, and for Neteller players from Ireland and the U.K. will not qualify.
These two e-wallets are often used by professional punters and arbitrage players, and that is why this rule is there. Of course those payment methods are used by other players too, but those are the rules.
Specials featuresThere is a mobile app available and it will operate on iphone and ipad, even ipod, and also Android, Blackberry, and even some older mobile phones.
The app covers the whole suite of gambling offerings though you may not want to use all of them.
Downloading the app is pretty straightforward, and you can scan a qr code too, or ask for a link.
BetVictor does best in the area of special promotions; they may not be for much cash value, but they can add a little bit of extra value to your bets.
