BetVictor Affiliate Security manager, John Rawles, has announced the closure and blocking of IP starting from 2nd of July of the following countries:
- Czech Republic
- Hong Kong
- Puerto Rico
- Vatican City
This announcement and closures are related to the recent regulatory changes in the mentioned countries.
Since some of these countries have regulated their markets, it’s just a matter of time until BetVictor will probably apply for licenses not to lose their customers to its competition.
John advised all affiliates who are promoting BetVictor brands in the mentioned regions to remove all content and banners that are aimed towards the operator.
Brief BetVictor history courtosy of BetVictor.com:
“The story began back in 1925 when Victor’s grandfather, William, opened up Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium. However, it was not until 1946 that Victor Chandler senior created the company as we know it now.
As soon as betting shops were made legal under the 1963 betting, gaming and lotteries act, Victor Chandler began to build up his own retail estate, taking bets in various locations across the south-east of England.
It was in 1975 that the current Victor Chandler took over the running of the business, heralding the start of a rapid expansion through a series of pioneering ventures. In the early 1990s, Victor began to accept football wagers from far-eastern clients and, in doing so, he recognised the potential growth in foreign markets. He opened up an office in Antigua to enable these clients to bet without the need to pay UK tax.
Paying 9% betting tax was something that UK customers had been forced to put up with and Victor wanted to give his customers better value for money. In 1996, he obtained a betting licence in Gibraltar and in 1999 moved his entire business there, employing 350 people and becoming the largest employer on the Rock. Victor Chandler was now able to offer sports betting free from UK tax.
The expansion of the Victor Chandler business has been largely through its online betting platforms which now include extremely successful casino and poker sites. Once again, Victor was one of the first to recognise the huge demand for these types of products. The business now turns over in excess of £1billion and has over half a million customers in over 160 different countries with betting and gaming sites available in a multitude of languages.
What has remained constant over the 65 years is the pioneering spirit, commitment to technology and a willingness to satisfy the customer; qualities that are central to Victor Chandler and his business.
It is no coincidence that Victor is known as “The Gentleman Bookmaker”. He hates to refuse anyone a bet and, as the racing journalist and Channel 4 presenter, Alastair Down, once wrote “he is the acceptable face of bookmaking. All right, he is there to part you from your money, but you get a straight deal, a civilised relationship and a sense of humour that reminds you that this game is meant to be fun.”
Within this site you’ll find an array of betting and gaming opportunities on all major sports including football, horse racing, tennis, golf, greyhound racing, rugby, cricket, snooker, NFL, NHL, NBA, college football and baseball.
With that in mind, we hope you enjoy the BetVictor group of websites, and whatever you like to play, be it casino, poker or sports betting, we hope you enjoy your visit.”
