BetVictorFinancials Review

Life After BetVictor Financials

BetVictor Financials have now closed.

Either the bookmaker decided to withdraw from the financial spread betting market or the collaboration has been ‘rationalised’ by London Capital Group.

It’s probably a bit of both.

According to the FCA register ‘BetVictor Financials’ was delisted as a Trading Name of London Capital Group on 18-Dec-2015.

Nevertheless if you liked the BetVictor Financials platform then is a very similar alternative, it has a similar platform layout.

They only offer +1,000 markets compared to BetVictor Financials’ +2,000+ markets but the spreads on the markets that most investors trade are the same or better.

Also see the Financial Spreads review.

(A more obvious option would be the Capital Spreads site but that is being merged into LCG Trader. This issue here is that LCG Trader is a relatively new platform and we prefer tried-and-tested).

The information below is being kept for archive purposes but with ‘BetVictor Financials’ no longer trading it should not be relied upon.

On we want to help investors choose the trading option that is right for them. One option is BetVictor Financials, which offers both spread betting and CFDs.
