Betfred is a well known name among bettors in Britain as they have been around for the past 50 years. I mostly remember their betting shops in the UK, however, they managed to impress me with their nicely made website as well. The high odds on most football matches are a welcome addition and the fact that they are regulated by the UKGC and GLA certainly cannot be overlooked. Their variety of payment methods is sure to satisfy even the most demanding punters while the welcome bonus of £30 with a simple £10 deposit is quite impressive. A few more promotions, more languages and some Asian Handicaps would be a welcome addition, to an otherwise quality bookmaker.

Bookmaker Profile

Betfred is a well-known bookmaker in the betting industry, having been founded back in 1967 by Peter and Fred Done. They operate more than 1.300 betting shops in the UK and offer their sportsbook in a whole host of different countries, mainly consisting of English and Spanish speaking ones. Betfred is licensed and regulated by the prestigious regulators of the United Kingdom Gambling Commission and the Gibraltar Licensing Authority.

Betfred offers an impressive 96.5% payout on football bets, that is comparable to some Asian high-odds bookies. Their average payout reaches 95.1%, which is typically common on most betting sites. One of the coolest features on is the Totepool. This basically acts like a lottery, where all the wagers horse race punters place on a race, go to a common pool that is divided among the winners.

Upon signing up you can claim one of the two available welcome bonuses. You can either get the bet £10 get £30 sportsbook sign up bonus or claim the exclusive welcome bonus offer, that let's you earn 30 freespins!

You can place your bets on almost every other sport, including a few rarely found on other bookmakers. Basketball and tennis bettors are obviously welcome, however, you can also try your luck on hurling, MMA, esports and politics or entertainment. Every sports event can be enjoyed on the live betting section, where a great number of them are transmitted instantly on high definition quality, through the live streaming feature.

Depositing and withdrawing on Beftred is done fast and easy through various payment methods. You can use bank cards, e-wallets like Paypal, Skrill & Neteller, Paysafecard vouchers and the popular BACS service that lets you deposit and withdraw without limits. What caught our eye, is the well-made Betfred mobile app that has been ranked among the 10 best mobile platforms according to players and has been nominated as the Best Casino & Sportsbook App on the 2017 Gaming APP Awards.

Betfred is highly respected in the sports industry and acts as the proud sponsor of the Bolton Wanderers, Scottish League Cup, UK Rugby League and Snooker World Championship. 18+ | T&Cs Apply.
