A Glance Over the Features
The BetVictor mobile app certainly looks the part. Retaining the same metallic effect and colour scheme as the web version, it is visually appealing and very user-friendly. The sports markets are a good reflection too, although betting options, especially for smaller fixtures, are a little more limited. Most importantly, the odds remain as good as they are with the online platform. The bookmaker has proved time and time again that it offers amongst the best odds of any sports betting site and this rings true for its mobile app too.
How Easy Is It to Place a Bet?
Like most online bookies and their mobile apps, BetVictor uses a bet slip to make placing a bet quick and easy. It’s a tried and tested function that works well here. Once you’re logged into your account, you can choose the sport market you want or head to the in-play arena. Football, tennis and horse racing are the most popular sports with the betting site and there’s a quick link to each on the homepage, but you can access all other sports through the drop down box in the top left. After choosing the sport, the next page will display all the available leagues and tournaments for the sport. Tapping on the relevant league will then bring up all the currently available and upcoming fixtures.
The system for selecting bets is pretty much the same as with the web platform. Simply tap on the odds of the selection(s) of choice and they will automatically be added to the bet slip. If you want to place a bet with multiple selections, just keep adding more bets, which will be added to the slip. The bet slip icon will show how many selections have been added. Once you’re ready to place the bet, tap the bet slip icon, which will bring it up. The bet slip is essentially a simplified version of the web platform’s bet slip. Simply tap on the relevant stake box and then enter in the amount you’d like to bet. Tap the green button to confirm the amount and you’ll be taken back to the bet slip, where you can hit the green place bets button to confirm the bet. Of course, placing bets can be a little quicker, such as when a selection is in-play and you can go straight to the in-play arena. But this test represents the standard way to place a pre-match bet, which is as quick a process here as anywhere else.
Functionality, Navigation and Live-streams
The look and feel is very similar to the online platform. The obvious constraints of a mobile app version of a web platform are the spacial limitations, but the BetVictor app designers have handled this well. The similar design means that navigation remains fluid, since those already familiar with the web version will already be acquainted with the layout. Sports markets are contained in a drop down list, while there are quick links to in-play, football, horse racing and tennis markets on the front page. The homepage also has a highlights section which works really well as a quick link sections to particular highlights, such as major tournaments, fixtures or bet markets. When logged into the platform there’s also a navigation box that provides quick access to your account information and also to any open bets.
This box also has a link to the live-stream section of the app. Just like with the online platform, the only available live-streams are for horse racing. There is a good selection of streams for the sport however and using the live-stream link is a useful way to navigate around horse racing bets. Once in the live-streaming area, you can navigate between races, events and events listed by date. Viewing the streams works in much the same way, in that a £1 bet must be placed on an event to stream it.
The operator’s main strength in the extras realm is with its enhanced price offers. The bookmaker has taken this to a new level with the introduction of a dedicated enhanced odds app, the BetVictor Instabet mobile app. Through this, punters get offered enhanced odds on specific bets that are so good, they are only available for 15 minutes. The app is great fun to use and really offers a lot of potential value to punters who regularly take advantage of its offers. Just like with the online platform, there are a selection of advanced odds specials on the standard mobile app, available under the bet boosts heading. Mostly these are the same as the web options, but there are occasionally one or two bet boosts exclusive to mobile users.
Exclusive Mobile Bonus & Payment Options
Like with most of the betting sites we have reviewed there’s no exclusive mobile bonus here. It is of course possible to use the welcome bonus for the main platform with the mobile app, so you can bet on the go whilst playing through the sign-up offer. The payment options are a little more restricted than with online too, with card payments, Neteller, Skrill and paysafecard being the available deposit methods with the BetVictor mobile apps. That said, deposits and withdrawals processed quickly and smoothly in my experience, with no unexpected delays or exaggerated processing times.
Download for iOS Mobile and Tablet Devices
Use of the BetVictor sportsbook is possible with iOS, Android and Windows devices. Android and Windows users will have to settle for using a web application however, rather than being able to download the app. A shortcut can be downloaded to your phone’s desktop which will take you immediately to the mobile version platform, so you can use the site while on your mobile. This is fairly common amongst the popular betting sites with some operating systems outside of iOS.
|All Details about the App Downloads
||iOS 7 or higher
iOS users will be pleased to know that they have the apps at their disposal to be downloaded from the iTunes store. They require at least iOS version 7, with the main app being 21MB in size. This applies to both iPad and iPhones, so users of both can enjoy all the apps have to offer.
Conclusion – A Fine Tuned Sports Betting Mobile App
Just like its online predecessor, the BetVictor sports betting mobile app is a classy affair. The interface looks the part, while the market and betting options have enough to keep any punter happy and the app is very user-friendly. Just like with the main platform, very high odds are a huge pull for many to the BetVictor sports betting app. You’ll find the best odds of any sportsbook for football, while the odds for almost all other sports are also generous. That’s not to mention the enhanced odds dedicated Instabet app, which gives enhanced prices that are so good, you have just 15 minutes to take advantage.
Strengths and Weaknesses of the BetVictor App
- Major Strengths
- unique Instabet app
- Minor Strengths
- enhanced odds for mobile
- great layout
- Minor Weaknesses
- limited live-streams
Our tests didn’t really unearth any weaknesses with the BetVictor app. It certainly isn’t a world beater, but there are definitely no huge flaws to be wary of. The biggest downside is something that the online platform also suffers from, the lack of live-streams. Not only is horse racing the only sport available to be streamed, but the number of events are also a little limited when compared to some other betting sites. This is not such a big deal for mobile users who are more interested in quick betting possibilities, but it is definitely something worth mentioning. So if it’s live-streaming on mobile that you seek then I would recommend the live-streaming capabilities on the Coral mobile app. All things considered though, the BetVictor sports betting app is as good as anything else on the market and is certainly worthy of your attention.
