BetVictor recently announced that following discussions with Horseracing Bettor Forum (HBF), they have introduced a £500 Bet Guarantee market, allowing all customers to win up to £500 on each UK & Irish horse race.
Horseracing Bettor Forum have raised awareness of the number of betting accounts which have been restricted and/or closed due to punters winning and consider this implementation from BetVictor 'an extremely positive step forward for British and Irish racing bettors'.
"HBF welcomes the news that BetVictor has introduced a Guaranteed Bet provision.
For the first time with a major operator, punters will be able to back any horse to win a minimum of £500 regardless of the class of race.
Having discussed a number of issues with the team at BetVictor earlier in the year, HBF was heartened by their commitment to a fairer betting environment.
Of course, actions speak louder than words, and today's announcement is an extremely positive step forward for British and Irish racing bettors as well as a palpable demonstration of BetVictor's commitment.
HBF believes the Guaranteed Bet provision represents a forward-thinking approach, and we further hope it encourages other operators to enhance their offering to horseracing bettors."
what this means for customers
The Bet Guarantee means that even members who have had their accounts closed or restricted in the past can now place bets on UK & Irish horse races and be in with the chance of winning up to £500. Members of BetVictor who have had their accounts closed or restricted must email the BetVictor support team and request that their accounts are opened and that the Bet Guarantee market be available to them.
A recent Tweet from BetVictor on August 20th 2018 read:
"Customers who have been previously excluded from Sportsbook as a trading decision should email [email protected] with the details. These accounts will be considered for wagering on this market only."
"We are pleased to launch Guaranteed Bet, which once again shows our commitment to giving horseracing bettors the best possible value.
We entered dialogue with the Horseracing Bettors Forum earlier this year and this project is something we have been keen to implement for a while. We believe our guarantee to include 'each way' bets and all race classes makes it a leading industry initiative.
Once we have trialled Guaranteed Bet for a short time, our plan is to review it with the intention of increasing limits and extending the timescales going forward."

Unfortunately, offers such as Best Odds Guaranteed and Each Way place terms will not apply to any bets placed using 'Bet Guarantee'. Customers who are only eligible to place bets using Bet Guarantee will not be able to use BetVictor for matched betting as they will not be eligible for offers & promotions.
