BHA confirms BetVictor as authorised betting partner

19 February 2016

The British Horseracing Authority has announced that BetVictor has agreed a three-year deal to become its latest authorised betting partner (ABP).

Under the agreement, BetVictor will make a voluntary contribution to racing, based on its profit from the sport in the UK.

BetVictor now joins the likes of Bet365 and Betfair as operators that have signed up to the scheme.

“We feel we would be doing our customers a disservice by not getting behind this initiative and believe it will resonate with customers of other companies who choose not to sign up,” BetVictor chief executive Andreas Meinrad said.

“These are exciting times for both British horse racing and BetVictor and we are looking forward to a close, long and successful partnership.”

Nick Rust, chief executive of the BHA, added: “We look forward to working with BetVictor to grow their racing business, and to seeing their name on British racecourses.”
