VC Bet was the first online bookmaker to feature tax free bets to their clients by way of moving their own operations to the rock of Gibraltar from their original home in London England. A trend was set here, tax free betting is a fairly popular option, several other sportsbooks followed suite making that little rock and our tax debt a little smaller until the government in the United Kingdom finally abolished taxes on bets made all together.

VC Bet Corporate Information

Victor Chandler’s history dates back to 1925 when his grandfather opened up a Greyhound Stadium. This stadium is still a popular sporting venue that remains owned by the Chandler family today. It was in 1946 that the Victor Chandler Company as we know it was founded by Victor Chandler Sr.

When live betting shops were legalized in 1963, Victor Chandler began to building his real-estate by taking bets across the south-east of England. As you can probably imagine these shops were extremely successful.

In 1975 the current owner of VC Bet took over the running of the business, Victor Chandler Jr. (the founder’s son). The business began to grow rapidly as Chandler began international expansions. In the early 1990’s he set up an office in Antigua in order to take bets on football from American clients. This Antigua office allowed Americans to bet with VC without the need to pay UK tax on their wagers.

In 1996, Victor decided that the 9% UK tax bettors needed to pay on wagers was too much. He decided to open and office in Gibraltar to provide a tax free betting operation to UK residents. In 1999 he moved his entire operation to Gibraltar.

Today VC Bet is licensed by both the governments of Gibraltar and the United Kingdom, as the UK has since abolished the UK wager tax. They now employ more than 500 employees and offer wagers a massive array of betting and gaming opportunities on all major sports including football, horse racing, golf, greyhound racing, rugby, cricket, snooker, NFL, NHL, NBA, college football and baseball.
