VCBet Racebook Review

VCBet.com is the online division of the well known Victor Chandler Group, one of the world's leading independent bookmaking and gaming groups. The Victor Chandler Group has offices in London, Gibraltar and the Far East. The group is headed by Victor Chandler himself, known in the industry as "The Gentleman Bookmaker".

The Victor Chandler Group started in 1925 when Victor's grandfather, William, opened up Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium, still a popular sporting venue owned by the Chandler family today. In 1946 Victor Chandler senior created the company as we know it today.

As soon as betting shops were legalized 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.

Then in 1975, the current Victor Chandler took over the business. In the early 1990's, Victor began to accept football wagers from far-eastern clients and, in doing so, recognized 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 license 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 the popular VCBet racebook. He now has offices in Macau, Kuala Lumpur and Buenos Aires. As of this writing, VCBet.com is available in 14 different languages. The business now turns over in excess of 1billion and has over half a million customers in over 160 different countries.

VCBet.com has a neat and simple layout and it is fairly easy to navigate through the site. In the horseracing page, you can choose to view today's races, early prices, the next three races, tomorrow's races or the ante post. This saves you a lot of time since you can easily sort the races you may want to bet on.
