VBet arrived in the UK market in 2017, a key milestone for an operator that started out in 2003 and has since expanded to offer online sports betting and casino products across Europe. It is a main B2C brand of major gaming technology and services provider, BetConstruct.

VBet Review

VBet is a relatively fresh face on the scene, having launched in the UK in 2017. The depth of its sports betting offering is sure to attract punters (as is the magenta branding!), and VBet stacks up quite well against many other UK-facing operators.

Why Bet With VBet?

⚽ Wide selection of football betting markets

👍 Various existing customer promos

🎮 One of the best Esports bookies

    V Bet bonus bundle bet 10 get 20

    New VBet customers can get free bets, spins and bonuses worth up to £20.

    VBet offers a huge amount of markets across key global sports and events. Football is predictably well covered with a wide selection of markets including micro-betting markets and, crucially for some, asian handicaps.

    A recent expansion of its horse racing markets means UK punters at VBet can now bet on international races from the USA and Japan, in addition to British and Irish fixtures.

    Esports is another area that VBet covers well - markets are available on the main MOBA and FPS titles as well as numerous other games.

    VBet does a good job of keeping existing customers happy with its selection of promotions. Cash Out and Boosted Odds are available on dozens of markets every day across the whole range of sports.

    The Acca Insurance promotion is also not to be sniffed at, as it enables punters to claim free bets if one leg of their acca (minimum four legs) lets them down.

    V Bet football markets

    VBet offers a wide selection of football markets.

    In addition to the sportsbook, the VBet casino is a substantial effort - there is a huge stack of casino, live casino and slots games to pick from, not to mention a standalone Keno option.

    For moments when the real sports calendar is sparse, VBet has numerous virtual betting categories, including virtual bicycle, drag racing, football, greyhounds and everyone's favourite playground pursuit: marble racing.

    The availability of 24/7 support via both live chat and telephone is a strong indication of VBet’s commitment to customer service. Email support is also available for anything not covered in the website FAQs.

      What VBet Could Improve
      • Site layout not the most intuitive
      • No dedicated UK betting app

      The VBet website is perhaps not the most intuitive among the UK-facing operators.

      Once you’ve navigated to either in-play or pre-match markets, however, the layout does start to become more familiar. The search tool is a handy inclusion, too.

      It should also be noted that VBet’s live streaming options are not as extensive as at some other UK bookmakers. If your in-play bets depend on seeing the action, other sites like bwin may be a good choice.

      VBet does not yet offer a dedicated mobile app for UK bettors. Although the mobile site works perfectly well, it’s worth keeping an eye out for any updates on the app front, as it’s surely something VBet will look to introduce to further strengthen their appeal to UK punters.

      VBet Offers

      £20 Bonus Bundle

      Is there a VBet bonus code?

      You don’t need a bonus code to access the VBet new customer offer. Simply click here and register a new account. Then, place a qualifying first bet and the VBet betting variety pack bonus is yours!

      Is Vivarobet the same as VBet?

      Yes. VBet was established in Armenia in 2003 as Vivaro - at first Vivaro ran just a single betting shop in the Armenian capital, Yereven. Over the years, Vivaro expanded (launching their first online betting site in 2006) and transitioned to the VBet brand as it diversified offers and services.

      Who owns VBet?

      VBet was set up by brothers and co-founders, Vigen and Vahe Badalyan. VBet is operated by Vivaro Ltd, which is based in Malta and is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.

      Is VBet connected with Arsenal FC?

      VBet has, since 2019, been Arsenal’s official betting and gaming partner. Former star midfielder Ray Parlour - a.k.a. The Romford Pele - has been acting as VBet’s brand ambassador at Arsenal.

      Are there any VBet sister sites?

      Other currently active online betting sites and casinos operated by Vivaro Ltd include AVABET, LoveBet, BETMVP, and ManBetX (who currently sponsor Wolverhampton Wanderers’ shirts and also previously sponsored Crystal Palace).

      VBet Odds

      Vbet prices are generally quite competitive, and the payout percentage is slightly above average for the UK market (though not the best on offer). VBet’s in-play football prices are often within a few ticks of the UK bookies recognised as offering the sharpest prices, so it’s likely you’ll get reasonable value on your live wagers.

      The Boosted Odds promotion available each day on numerous events across different sports is also a boon for value-hunters.

      V Bet Boosted Odds

      Look out for Boosted Odds available across many VBet markets.

      VBet Sports

      VBet offers plenty of markets on all of the most popular sports globally, and some pretty obscure ones, too (Pesäpallo, for example, does not regularly feature on UK-facing bookies!).

      VBet UK

      A glance down the list of markets available indicates that there isn’t much of interest to UK punters that VBet doesn’t cover. VBet compares well to competitors in terms of the range of sports it offers markets on.

      VBet provides top-notch coverage of football and the racing options have recently improved.

      The recent upgrade to its horse racing offering to include international races in addition to those in Britain and Ireland is a big step forward for VBet in the UK.

      VBet targets the UK football betting market with a combination of decent odds, a wide selection of games for both pre-match and in-play betting, and a marketing push that has seen it team up with several UK clubs.

      V Bet Cricket Boosted

      In addition to football and racing, plenty of markets are available on all the most popular UK sports.

      Outside of the two main sports in the UK betting market, VBet’s markets on tennis, greyhounds, golf, cricket, rugby, darts, F1 and snooker mean punters keen on British sport should not need to look elsewhere. Unless your edge is in lawn bowls, that is.

      VBet Free Bet

      VBet offers new customers 2 x £5 free sports bets, 20 free spins on eligible games, and a £10 casino bonus as part of the VBet betting variety pack bonus. To bag these free bets (and more!), all you have to do is:

      1. Click here to sign up for a new VBet account.
      2. Place a £10 qualifying bet.
      3. The VBet betting variety pack bonus will be credited to your account!

      VBet Horse Racing

      It used to be the case that UK punters only had UK and Irish horse racing available to them on VBet. However, this is happily no longer the case and racing fans can now have a flutter on a wide selection of international races, too.

      V Bet Racing 2

      Winner, forecast, and tricast markets are available.

      Markets available include winner, forecast and tricast, and there is live streaming on selected UK and Irish races. Antepost markets are also available for all the big fixtures worldwide.

      VBet’s horse racing markets are supported by some decent promotions. Best Odds Guaranteed and First Past the Post are useful ongoing features that will net you value and insure against disqualifications or demotions. You can also get a £5 free horse racing bet every week if you place five single bets of at least £5.

      VBet Football

      Commercial partnerships with Arsenal, Portsmouth, AS Monaco and London’s oldest football club Cray Wanderers have helped VBet get its distinctive magenta branding into the view of UK footy fans.

      VBET Asian handi

      There are multiple asian handicap lines on most football matches both pre-match and in-play.

      There is a great variety of pre-game markets to choose from on most matches.

      The availability of asian handicaps is a particular plus. However, corner and card markets are conspicuous in their absence.

      Ryan Davis

      Ryan Davis

      The live odds are quick to update and prices are sensible. There aren’t as many football matches coming in-play as with the likes of Bet365, but it's hardly a crime not to be able to equal the world’s biggest bookie on that front: There are more than enough matches and markets to keep in-play footy punters busy.

      Ryan Davis (My Betting Sites reviewer)

      VBet Esports

      VBet’s coverage of esports is impressive and its importance is reflected in its position in the website’s main menu alongside the big-hitting in-play, racing, and casino options. VBet also sponsors top Swedish esports team Alliance.

      V Bet Esports live

      At VBet you can bet pre-match or in-play on many of the top esports clashes.

      There are loads of markets for the main MOBA games such as Dota 2 and League of Legends, as well as the most popular FPS title, CS: GO. Plenty of matches go in-play, too.

      VBet also covers elite matchups and the top ranked clashes in Call of Duty, Overwatch, Rainbow Six, and StarCraft 2 - there’s a good selection of markets on most of these.

      VBet Mobile App

      The VBet mobile site is very smooth and, if anything, a preferable experience to accessing and betting on markets on desktop.

      V Bet mobile

      VBet's mobile site performs well.

      At the time of writing, VBet does not have a dedicated app for its sportsbook or casino product that UK punters can download.

      Apps do appear to be available for VBet customers in other jurisdictions, so it may only be a matter of time before they become available for Brits (watch this space).

      VBet apk (Android)

      A dedicated Android sports betting app is currently not an option for UK bettors. Instead, Android users can make use of the perfectly good VBet mobile site.

      Android users: Add the VBet site to your start screen for easy access to your bets on the go.

      VBet iOS

      It’s a similar story for VBet on the iPhone and iPad - unfortunately a dedicated app is not yet available for UK punters.

      As with Android, it's easy to add a shortcut to the VBet mobile site to your iPhone's home screen for quick access.

      VBet Casino

      VBet brings a strong casino offering to the UK market, in particular with its wide selection of live casino tables. Live games are provided by top software providers such as BetConstruct, Pragmatic Play, and Evolution (you can even filter by software provider if you’re a particular fan of one or the other).

      V Bet Live Casino

      VBet offers a wide selection of live casino tables.

      Away from the live tables, there are absolutely loads of slots, table games, and jackpots to choose from. Free spins promotions are often available and worth keeping an eye out for.

      Keno is a relatively new addition to the VBet UK site. Two variations of this game are on offer, Power Keno 10/20 and Power Keno 8/20.

      VBet Features

      £20 Bonus Bundle
      + 20 Free Spins!

      Only available to verified customers residing in the UK. Place a first ever sports bet (£10 min. stake; single bets only; min. odds 1.4). Get 2x£5 in free sports bets, £10 in bonus money at Casino and 20 free spins (£0.10 per spin) on eligible NetEnt Slots. Payment method restrictions apply. T&Cs apply. 18+ Please gamble responsibly

      VBet offers a lot more to its customers than simply running a book on big sports events and boosting new accounts with free bet offers. VBet’s betting, promotional and customer service features strengthen its case for attracting new punters in the UK.

      VBet Live Chat

      Plenty of common queries are covered in the FAQ section and email support is also available. For quick support, VBet offers UK punters live chat and telephone support.

      VBet live chat and telephone support are both available 24/7.

      The 24/7 coverage is certainly comprehensive and not something that every UK-facing bookie offers at the moment.

      VBet Cash Out

      Like most bookies nowadays, VBet offers a cash out functionality. The ability to sell your stake back to the bookie in order to net profit before an event has settled has been one of the big changes in online betting over recent years, and VBet is well on top of it with its smooth cash out offering.

      VBet Live Streaming

      VBet does offer live streaming on a number of events. However, the live streaming availability is certainly not as comprehensive as some competitors.

      Events where streaming is available are marked with a video icon.

      For most other in-play events, punters are provided with decent live stats.

      VBet Promotions

      On the betting promotions side, VBet covers key areas including Cash Out and Boosted Odds across a big chunk of events each day, as well as Best Odds Guaranteed on horse racing.

      Other useful promotions on horse racing include free bets for regular players and first past the post insurance, where you’ll get paid out even if your runner is disqualified or demoted provided it is first past the post.

      V Bet promos

      A selection of VBet existing customer promotions.

      Football bettors are particularly well-catered for in the promotions department. Along with Boosted Odds available on key matches, VBet also offers Acca insurance if one leg of your acca of four or more selections lets you down. You can bag up to 100% of your stake back as a free bet or refund, depending on how many selections you make.

      Most punters hate a borefest between two teams parking their buses with hand brakes firmly on. Thankfully, they can ensure they aren’t caught out by woeful finishing by taking advantage of VBet's Boring Football promotion: You'll get part of your stake on correct score markets refunded in the event of a goalless draw.

      VBet Deposit Methods

      In addition to debit/credit card deposits, VBet allows customers to deposit via a number of eWallet solutions. Note that VBet doesn’t accept bank transfers or cryptocurrencies. A full list of deposit options for UK customers is below:

      • Trustly (min. £1)
      • PayPal (min. £10)
      • Neteller (min. £5)
      • Skrill (min. £5)
      • MuchBetter (min. £10)
      • Visa/Mastercard (min. £10)
      • ecoPayz (min. £5)

      VBet Paypal

      PayPal is one of the most widely used payment methods and it’s always a big positive to see that an operator accepts PayPal deposits. The minimum deposit amount for PayPal is £10, and the maximum is £200. This maximum is fairly low when compared to all other payment methods which allow deposits of up to £10,000.

      VBet Final Verdict

      About VBet

      VBet (formerly known as Vivaro) was established in Armenia in 2003. Founders Vigen and Vahe Badalyan expanded the company from its initial chain of bookmaker shops to launching its first betting website in 2006.

      In 2011, VBet became the B2C brand of BetConstruct, a gaming technology and services provider also run by Vigen Badalyan that counts 2000s European football royalty Youri Djorkaeff, Andriy Shevchenko and Nuno Gomes among its brand ambassadors.

      VBet gained approval to operate in the UK in 2017 and now operates across numerous European countries.
