Betfred is a solid and trustworthy British bookmaker that operates more than 50 years. The betting operator has a very good reputation, especially among punters from Great Britain which are the main target of Betfred’s offer. It must be said though, that this bookmaker is quite well-known in other countries, mainly in Europe, and every punter should find some interesting events and bets in its offer.
Advantages and disadvantages of the bookmaker
Betfred is a British bookmaker that has been operating ever since 1967. Since 2004 the bookmaker launched its online sports betting website. Like most British bookmakers, Betfred is licensed by Gibraltar’s Gambling Division. The name Betfred comes from the name of the creator of the company - Fred Done. This betting operator is one of the giants of modern gambling industry. Apart from sports betting website, the company owns over 750 betting shops and employs approximately 5000 people. What is more, the yearly income of Betfred is said to be 1,5 billion pounds! As it was already mentioned, Betfred is far more than just sports betting, the bookmaker also has online casino, poker, bingo and even lotteries in its offer. But it is not the end, there are dozens of other gambling games offered at Betfred. Does it get any better than this?
Sports betting offer
Betfred is mostly known for its very rich sports betting offer, both for pre-match bets and Livebetting. The bookmaker offers a variety of disciplines of sports and various competitions to choose from. The best offer is that of football, furby and horse racing - which is considered one of the greatest in the world of sports betting. It must be said at this point that every British punter that wants to be professional or at least make some profits, needs to have a betting account at Betfred as this bookmaker specialises in the British market.
It does not mean that punters from other countries will not be satisfied with Betfreds sports betting offer. As it was mentioned before, there is a large number of sports to choose from and a long list of events from various competitions. When it comes to Betfred odds, they are a bit above the usual odds offered by most bookmakers. They are not the best, but they are certainly far from the worst.
Unfortunately, this section of Betfred online sports betting website need few changes and improvements. It is not terrible, do not get us wrong, it just could be better in few aspects. First of all, the number of offered events for Live betting is not sufficient. It must be said that bookmakers with similar reputation offer far more Live bets. Apart from that the number of bets for less popular disciplines of sports and competitions is really small.
Furthermore, the bookmaker focuses on the most popular events and competitions that are not the best options for professional punters who mostly bet on more exotic tournaments and lower league games. From the other hand, a very functional Livestreaming feature partially compensates the number of Live events. But, once again it is not perfect as it mostly broadcasts football matches and horse racing competitions.
Bonuses and betting promotions
We praised bonuses and promotions offered by many bookmakers, but almost none of them were at the level of Betfred. The bookmaker offer for bonuses and promotions is simply excellent and the only word we have for it is: WOW. At the moment, the bookmaker offers over 20 bonuses and betting promotions for both new and existing customers. What is more, there is another 20 or so bonuses for casino, poker and bingo.
Once again, the focus of this bookmaker is shifted towards British punters as most occasional bets, enhanced odds or free bets are football or rugby matches and horse races. But there is so many different promotions that every punter should find at least one that would be interesting for him. Overall, bonuses and promotions are a big advantage of Betfred bookmaker.
Mobile version of Betfred website is decent at most. When it comes to the mobile app offered by this bookmaker, it took quite some time for the owners of this betting operator to understand that mobile betting app is a must have in today’s sports betting reality. Finally, they created and launched Betfred’s mobile app which can be downloaded and installed for free on almost any type of devices such as smartphones or tablets and most operating systems. The app works fine and there should be no problems with it. It is still not the best option offered in the industry, but is is definitely a nice addition from Betfred bookmaker.
Let us start from the beginning. The lack of Live chat as one of the communication methods is an obvious disappointment. Betfred should definitely work on that because other bookmakers are far ahead when it comes to fast and responsive contact. As for other options, you can contact the customer support via email or by phone. Please remember that the latter option can involve small fees, depending on your mobile phone network and home country.
Betfreds offers a lot of payment methods and a long list of available currencies to choose from (British Pound Sterling, American Dollar, Euro and many others). Making deposits and withdrawals should also not be a problem. Betfred gives you the opportunity to swiftly transfer your money, select an event, place a bet and after your selection have been settled, quickly withdrew your funds without any delays.
