BetVictor will be one of several fully legal Ontario betting sites soon after market launch in spring of 2022. They currently serve all of Canada from their site based in Gibraltar. Existing Ontario players will be shifted to the new legal system soon after they are fully licensed. Mainly known as a brand for the UK and Ireland, BetVictor has gained significant brand traction with Ontario EPL fans through several past club sponsorships in that league. As BetVictor enters the legal Ontario market, they will be looking to attract new fans that may be more focused on traditionally 'Canadian' sports and leagues like the NFL and NHL. If the BetVictor brand is new to you, know that they are not new at all - their parent company was founded in 1946. They know what they're doing and what bettors like, no matter where they live.

Like any proper, proper Ontario sportsbook, BetVictor offers both a top notch mobile betting site and the option of their mobile app for either iOS or Android. We have a real problem with any Ontario provider that only offers an app for mobile betting, given all of the data privacy concerns that have arisen. Several of the US brand entrants to the legal market only offer Ontario betting apps for use from a mobile device, not a mobile site, which is unfortunate, unnecessary and a signal of a greedy operator that wants to not only profit from being a gaming operator, but one that can also harvest your valuable data. BetVictor gives you the choice to play more privately with their super quick and intuitive mobile site as accessed from your preferred mobile Internet browser, or their mobile betting app.
BetVictor offers a super-clean 3 pane setup for play from their full resolution betting site, which is tailored to Canadian tastes and terms. Find Hockey, Football and Soccer, not UK lingo for the same. Find the main sport and gaming vertical navigation on the left. Once you click a given sport, you will be able to find featured events in the main middle pane, or click 'competitions' to find your league events of interest.
Each page loads very quickly, whether it be a page full of events, or a page that belongs to a given event with all of the applicable betting markets. Betting markets are nicely categorized with buttons. Click your category to see the array of markets. Left navigation elements have a dark grey background while the main events and odds area have a white background, which is a nice natural contrast between the two key areas. Early cash out markets are widely available as they happen, as shown by the cash out icon (money-in-hand symbol).
Ontario will allow new customer promotional offers and BetVictor will have one available. Prior to the Ontario market opening, BetVictor offered a 100% deposit bonus up to $300 across Canada. Once the BetVictor Ontario bonus details are ready, we will update things here.
BetVictor will be expanding their available payment options for Ontario to include Visa, Mastercard, Interac, iDebit and Instadebit.
At the moment, true to their UK heritage, BetVictor is most competitive with their odds margins for top soccer events. Find margins between 3% and 4% for top leagues like the EPL, UCL and Serie A among others. BetVictor margins for the 'top four' North American leagues are not yet as competitive as many of the big incumbent brands in the Ontario market, as they tend to fall around 6.5%. Most of the more competitive providers are in the 5% region on the main markets for the NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL. BetVictor is not there just yet, but may adjust these margins as they enter the Ontario market fully.
If you tend to have more international flavour to your betting choices, be it rugby or cricket or otherwise, you will find that BetVictor has more competitive odds (and better coverage) of your preferred sports and leagues, with margins closer to 5% on the main betting markets. Many of the brands out of the US likely won't pay much attention to these sports, even though Ontario and Canada has big immigrant communities that are obsessed with these sports.
If you'd like it to be a part of your overall betting experience, know that BetVictor provides an excellent Ontario esports betting offering, covering events well. Find 'Esports' in the main navigation as its own gaming vertical, or within the A-Z of sports listings. At the time of our preview, we can see that BetVictor had in-play coverage of live esports events as well an array of pre-match offerings on many CS:GO, LOL, KOG, SCII and DOTA2 events. Within each event, we can see that there are more betting markets available than simple match winner markets. Many of the US brands that are moving into Ontario have no esports coverage, or if they do offer esports betting, they only offer this most basic match winner market. Find various scoring markets, handicap markets, map winner markets and more depending on the given esport of choice at BetVictor.
BetVictor Ontario will offer one of the top legal Ontario online casinos, with RNG (Random Number Generator) online casino games, slots and jackpots, as well as access to live casino games with real-life dealers and croupiers that run your games on-camera. BetVictor also offers online bingo games. So if you are interested in any of these game types, they will be available from the same account, across devices. If you would like to have access to an online poker room from the same account as your sportsbook, you won't be able to do that with BetVictor, but several of our recommended providers for Ontario do offer top poker experiences, including bet365 and Betsafe.
If you are a Premier League watcher, you likely already know the BetVictor brand. If any top soccer league will play a significant part of your betting action, BetVictor needs serious consideration, given their odds margins, market coverage and all-around great betting platform. As they ease into the official Ontario sportsbook market, we are sure that their odds margins for the 'big four' North American leagues will only get more competitive. If you really only care about the NFL, NHL, NBA and MLB right now, and nothing else, while BetVictor will provide you with a great platform and coverage, you will likely get better odds value elsewhere. See our top providers for help on that.
