BetVictor was established in 1946 as a bookmaker and has since expanded to become one of Europe's leading online gaming companies with customers from more than 150 countries, and the firm now employs more than 400 people.
Before its rebranding, BetVictor was known by its founder's name, Victor Chandler. BetVictor's online poker operation is on the Microgaming Network (MPN), although unlike some MPN site, BetVictor does not accept poker customers from the United Kingdom.
BetVictor Welcome Bonus and Package
All customers who download BetVictor via PokerNews Canada are entitled to a first-deposit bonus of up to $1,000. The size of the bonus aside, what makes this bonus superb value is the fact your initial deposit is matched 200%, meaning you only need to make your first deposit $500 to get your hands on a free $1,000!
The bonus is released in 10% increments so that you have a constant flow of bonus money hitting your BetVictor account. For every 8 Action Points you earn $1 is released. The smallest increment released into your account is $10 so you'll need to earn 80 Action Points to clear $10 of your bonus.
Action Points are awarded at a rate of 1 Action Point per $0.50 contributed to cash game rake or tournament fees, meaning you can quickly rack up Action Points to clear your bonus; they can also be used to buy into multi-table tournaments, and to climb the VIP programme — more on that a little later.
In addition to the 200% up to $1,000 first deposit bonus, new depositing players also gain access to the €1,000 New Player Freerolls and the €500 GTD New Player Turbo tournaments for their firs six weeks on the site. These take place every Wednesday at 8 p.m. CET and 10 p.m. CET.
Players signing up to BetVictor via PokerNews Canada also receive 20 free spins in the casino, which can be accessed via the poker software, plus two Flush Royale tickets worth €3.30 each to be used in the €500 GTD Flush Royale tournaments where if you win a hand at showdown with a royal flush using both hole cards you win a €1,500 MPN Poker Tour package!
