Betfred is one of the largest UK high street bookies with over 1350 shops. In 2011 they purchased the Tote, making them even larger. Betfred calls itself the 'bonus king' thanks to its daily specials, bonuses and price boosts.

Betfred Welcome Bonus

New UK customers at Betfred can claim a £30 free bet PLUS a £30 casino bonus by registering and betting £10 in real money (min odds of evens). The free bet and bonus should be added within 48 hours (based on the time the bet settles not when you placed it) and is valid for 14 days.

The free bet stake is not returned with any winnings you may receive, and the bonus is also not available to customers using any of the following payment methods: Moneybookers, PayPal, Neteller, UKash.

Other Promotions at Betfred

In addition to the welcome bonus, Betfred run plenty of betting specials. The offers change from time to time, and there are event specific promotions but at time of writing these include:

  • Treble Odds: If you have just one winner on a lucky 15, 31 or 63, that win will be paid out at triple odds!
  • Super Bonus Races: Place a bet on a winning lucky 15/31/63 or Yankee/Canadian/Heinz using the six bonus races and you'll get paid out an extra 25%/50%/100% of your winnings. If it's a major race day, this increases to 50%/100%/200%.
  • Double Delight/Hat-trick heaven: Back a player as the first goalscorer and if they go on to score again you'll get paid out at double (2 goals) or treble (3 goals) the odds.

Betfred Review

The Betfred brand is now synonymous in the gambling industry and has been around for a lot longer
than we would care to remember. Over the years it’s managed to transform itself from the high
shop brand it used to be, into a 21st century betting portal. We use the word portal because to just call BetFred a bookmaker these days, would do it an injustice. It’s apparent from the minute that you land on their site that it’s much more than is; the sites integration with its casino, poker, bingo and mobile sections highlight this fact.

Criticising the Betfred sports section is tough, but we have to be objective. The site is starting to a look a little dated. You only need to read through the reviews we have compiled on this site to see how many have undergone total transformations over the last few years. Betfred have certainly stuck with what they know and whilst there’s nothing majority wrong with it, it lacks that ‘wow’ factor that other sites have in abundance. Take their markets for example; you are greeted with a white background, basic black text and a box to highlight your pick. It’s just all a little dated and dull.

If you are someone who looks for substance over style, then you are in luck. The site excels in not
so much the range of sports on offer, but more the depth that they go into. It’s this depth which has managed to set them apart, even from the bigger bookmakers in the industry. But there is one sport that really defines Betfred and that’s football.

Betfred have been at the forefront of football betting for some time now and it’s through
innovations in betting markets such as Goals Galore, Double Delight and Hat trick Heaven. These
sorts of markets are new and engaging for its customers, and now you see a host of rival companies
offering similar markets. But Betfred remain the daddy for these types of bets and new markets, and
more often than not they are often the best priced for each.

On top of this Betfred have provided one of the best horse racing components of any site we have
seen; their Interactive Racecard. It’s ridiculous really the amount of information it holds. You can see the boring bits like colour of the silks, jockey name, trainer name, recent form and weights, but on top of that you can check the onsite predictor, information on previous head to heads between the horses and even a video of each horse’s last race. It’s so much more than a gimmicky feature on a betting site; it’s a real commodity for horse racing enthusiasts.
