BetVictor: bringing the race card into the modern era


In August 2019, BetVictor announced the launch of Smart Cards – the latest addition to their horse racing product offer. Here, we talk to BetVictor’s Director of Product Eoin Ryan, about the story behind the development of Smart Cards and the how BetVictor positions itself in the betting industry.


We’ve been working with Timeform - one of the world’s most respected horse racing data providers - for a while and we saw in their highly informative and insightful Smart Stats data an opportunity to tie it in with our own stats and pointers to create something new and unique, and that is how the Smart Cards product was developed.

How was the innovation of the Smart Cards product developed and how did it originally come about?


At BetVictor, we have a strong heritage in horse racing and many of our product team members are horse racing enthusiasts. Tis means that when there’s a gap in the market, we are quick to become aware of it.


Te idea of the Smart Cards product came about when we realised the modern-day horse-racing punter was not receiving the latest information in an effective and timely manner. Specifically, we noticed that the traditional race card was lacking real-time, up-to-the minute statistics, which are crucial in allowing punters to place informed bets.

Furthermore, we’ve partnered with jumps jockey Rachael Blackmore, flat jockey Nicola Currie and National Hunt trainer Jamie Snowden to tap into their knowledge and help amplify the reach of the product.


Why is the Smart Cards product important for BetVictor?


Nowadays, a horse racing punter is increasingly turning towards statistics in the hope to make better-informed betting decisions, however, the traditional betting experience within horse racing relies on information that is largely static.


Tis is where the Smart Cards product comes in, as it turns horse racing betting into a more engaging and dynamic experience for punters. It also provides them with data points typically unexposed to consumers, and unlike traditional race cards online, this data is provided in a digestible format. Te data may be originally complex, but Smart Cards presents it in a packaged format, so the customer is able to


access only the most stand-out, stat-driven pointers and insights.


Tis, combined with the constant stream of informational updates, tips and race day trends, such as eye-catching trainer/jockey partnerships, allows a punter to feel more confident and informed while making their betting decisions.


You’ve been at BetVictor for eight years and have worked in the industry for years before then. What would you say has been the biggest change in the industry in recent years?


Te biggest difference I have seen in recent years is definitely the emergence and evolution of the smartphone. Tis has had a huge impact on our industry and will continue to have such an impact.


When I first joined BetVictor, our top priority was the desktop site, and most of our
