The Victor Chandler Group may be a different entity from the London-based business that started in the 1940s, but it’s worth remembering that placing a bet is an act of trust. Worth remembering because, in the 25 years or more since Victor Chandler took over the family business, he has established a reputation for honour, integrity and for having virtually no upper limit on the bets that he will lay. It is these qualities that have gained him a reputation as the Gentleman Bookmaker.
Victor Chandler – Pioneering spirit and a passion for sport
With customers in over 70 countries across the world it is fair to say that Victor Chandler is a truly global operation.Headquarters in Gibraltar and with offices around the world, the Group offers international online and telephone sports betting opportunities and web-based gaming in many languages.
Since it’s formation in 1946, the groups steady growth has been underpinned by two values that set it apart from anyone else – a pioneering spirit and a passion for sport.
In seven decades of bookmaking Victor Chandler has learnt many things but perhaps nothing more important than the need for constant change and innovation in an industry that continues to expand year by year.
The site you are now using is testament to our commitment to delivering the finest online service to our clients. In terms of research and development no stone has been left unturned in the search to make the betting experience as enjoyable and as simple to use as possible.That same pioneering spirit and readiness to embrace change transformed the bookmaking industry forever when, in 1999, the Victor Chandler Group took the gamble to move its entire account operation from London to Gibraltar and almost overnight introduced tax-free betting for its ever-widening circle of international clients.
The gamble paid off and shifted the British Government’s stance on betting tax and is widely recognised as paving the way for tax-free betting in the UK.
Victor Chandler’s love of sport is underlined by its continual commitment to high profile major events throughout the calendar. Victor Chandler was the official bookmaker to the 2002 Ryder Cup and has in the past acted as the official sponsor to golf’s European Tour and several major tournaments.
The Group is a major sponsor of high profile British horse racing and lists York’s Nunthorpe Stakes and Ascot’s Victor Chandler Chase as part of its portfolio.
Within this site you’ll find a massive array of betting and gaming opportunities on all major sports including football, horse racing, golf, greyhound racing, rugby, cricket, snooker, NFL, NHL, NBA, college football and baseball.
