Online Bookmaker Victor Chandler to Open in South Africa

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2009) - Online betting company Victor Chandler, has recently announced that its application for a license in South Africa has been approved.

The new base for Victor Chandler will be in Cape Town, where the forthcoming World Cup draw will take place.

CEO Michael Carlton explained: "We are naturally excited about this opportunity. The Victor Chandler brand fits perfectly with the South African market. Alongside offering a South African specific website to customers we will also be creating numerous employment opportunities. We are really proud to be involved in a country where sport is so entrenched in its culture. I will be investing locally over the next few months in order to launch our full range sports betting service in time for the World Cup."

Victor Chandler are also working on a new World Cup football betting site that will offer all the latest team news, tournament news, updated tables, fixtures and more to get football betting fans into the spirit of the beautiful game.

The launch of the new mini site will coincide with the World Cup draw on December 4th, 5pm GMT. Victor Chandler is confident that they will have some of the best world cup odds around and will be supporting the England team all the way through next summer's tournament and the current odds for England to win the World Cup are well priced at 6/1, 3rd favourites behind Spain 4/1 and recent victors over England, Brazil 9/2.

This recent plan to open in South Africa is something that comes naturally to Victor Chandler, as the company was the first to move the operation off shore by setting up in Gibraltar in 1999 and into the Far East in the early 90's.
