The World Snooker Tour and BetVictor have announced that they are extending their long-term partnership throughout the 2023/2024 season.
The BetVictor and World Snooker Tour Partnership
BetVictor, one of the world’s leading online gambling operators has announced that it will be renewing its long-term partnership with the World Snooker Tour in a new sponsorship agreement. BetVictor will be the main sponsor for eight World Snooker tournaments over the 2023 and 2024 season.
As part of this sponsorship deal, just like previous deals between the companies, BetVictor will contribute a significant bonus to the best snooker player. Those taking part in the tournaments will have to collect points during each snooker game to make their way up the leader board as part of the BetVictor Series Rankings. The grand bonus prize will award them a huge £150,000.
In the last World Snooker Tournament season, the winner of the BetVictor series, Robert Milkins, won a dramatic race to secure the £150,000 prize. He beat his opponent by 9-7 to secure the BetVictor bonus money.
