Information About Betfred

Betfred was founded in 1967 giving it a serious history in its industry and has over 700 shops in the UK. The company also has an online presence and they claim to be the world largest privately owned betting firm. Many football fans will be aware of the company as they have official bookmaker and betting partner right deals with Wembley Stadium and Manchester United.

Ease of use

The site has a very clear layout that is easy to navigate and is very simple to use. The menus are clearly labelled and the betting process is the traditional click box variety. It may not grab your attention but the Betfred website is quick and efficient, perfect when you need to make a quick decision on a live game.


With the market already open for who will win the 2010 World Cup, the variety of football bets and specials that are available on Betfred make it attractive to keen football fans who want a little more. There are a huge range of football specials that are not available on rival sites including League title doubles featuring England and Spain or specific bets on when the big 4 teams will lose or who will have the longest unbeaten run. Its additional quirky bets like this that have helped Betfred establish themselves as an innovative and stand alone option from their peers.

The full range of sports may not be able to compete with ladbrokes or Betfair but there is enough to satisfy the vast majority of online punters. Some people will take a punt on anything if they like the odds but Betfred keeps the sporting options a bit simpler than some sites.

There is a massive range of other betting options available though and the Games selection boasts a large variety of options to catch your eye. In addition to Casino and Poker games and the increasingly popular Bingo option, Betfred offer many Lotto options. The ability to place a fixed odd line on the balls that will feature in upcoming Irish, 49s, Spanish, Canadian, French, German or Greek lotteries will keep any lotto fan happy with their lot!

Opening offers

Subject to terms and condition, new members of the site can get up to 100 in free bets. The first free bet will be a match of your first deposit up to 50; the second element requires the user to make 5 deposits of at least 10 each to obtain another 50.

Like many of its peers, additional opening offers are available for the separate markets offered by Betfred. The Casino element offers a 100% signup bonus up to 100 and a similar sign up offer is available for Poker.

Additional features

In addition to the opening offers, Betfred provide a range of promotions including referral bonuses, 10% of all casino losses back on the 13th of every month, multiple bingo deals. There is a mobile options and live commentary and sporting news and views is offered on site.

Although it offers many issues available on the major betting sites, Betfred retains its independent status with ease and it has enough original issues to entice many.
