Victor Chandler

Victor Chandler is arguably the most recognisable face in the bookmaking industry and the Millfield-educated owner has built the empire set up by his father in 1946.

As soon as betting shops were made legal in 1963 Victor Chandler Snr opened an array of shops in the south-east of England. Since then the company has flourished and in 1999 the company moved out to Gibraltar, to become the largest employer on the Rock.

Like many other bookmakers Victor Chandler offer a whole array of specials and some safety net offers, which allow the punter to get their money back if a specified result happens.

A strong relationship with the horse racing scene has enhanced Victor Chandler's reputation and they are still major sponsors of the sport. The two-mile Victor Chandler Chase is probably the most famous one as the Grade One is a trial for the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
