About Betfred

General Information

BetFred celebrated their 50th year in 2017, having been established in Salford back in 1967 and growing to the point they now employ 10,000 people. They have over 1,300 betting shops across the United Kingdom, and are looking to expand on that number. Fred and Peter Done were the co-founders, with the former infamously paying out early to Manchester United on two separate occasions when it seemed, pardon the pun, odds-on for the Red Devils to win the league in 1998 and 2012. BetFred also lost a £1m bet to rival bookmaker Victor Chandler in the 2004-05 Premier League season, when they bet United would finish higher than Chelsea. Jose Mourinho’s Blues landed the title that year, leaving BetFred out of pocket. They are the main sponsor for Rugby League’s Superleague for the next at least three years, a sign of how rooted in the North and North-West BetFred truly is.

Deposit & Withdrawals

One of their better areas, BetFred have a solid deposit and withdrawal system online. Transferring money both into your account and out is unlikely to cause problems, and is a very reliable way of dealing with your money. The usual £5 minimum to withdraw still stands, and you can withdraw around £7-12k in a day.

Customer Service

From experience, BetFred’s customer service is actually very good. Their live chat is constantly available, as well as the ever-popular Twitter option. However, it is worth noting for foreign visitors to the site that their live chat is only in English, which could create miscommunication of events and betting, leading to a disappointing experience rather than a memorable one.

License Information

For customers in the UK, Betfred licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission.

Site is hard to use, mostly unusable when a big match is on or if you want to place a bet fast, odds are not the best however their site has recently started coming up as unsecure, no answers from emails or contact on Social Media, closing account - too risky and too slow to respond!

Types of bets

Unlike other bookies’ websites, although quick to place a bet, it can be a little tedious. Finding football and rugby matches from the home page to bet on is slower than others, while their odds are quite competitive though sparse. They also offer ‘double delight’ and ‘hat-trick heaven’ which can either double or triple your winning bet when betting on the first goal scorer. They have some great odds for Horse Racing to compete with Sky and Bet365, and offer up to £1m pay-out. Although fairly slick and easy to use, BetFred seem to be a little behind the time with their live-betting. Put nicely, their in-play is less in depth than competitors, and do not offer live streaming in order to counter-act this difference. Events such as football do have a combination of commentary and stats to keep you interested, but not on a level to compel you to bet more. Their website is nicely laid out, but it is a little on the slow side, and can cause you miss out on an otherwise good offer. 

Sport coverage

Betfred cover 28 different sports with a primary focus on Horse and Greyhound racing, as well as English and European football matches.

In-play experience

Their website is nicely laid out, but it is a little on the slow side, and can cause you miss out on an otherwise good offer.

Live streaming

For horseracing and greyhounds streams, you do need to have placed a bet with the equivalent total stake of £1 or €1 per race (depending on your account’s currency). For a single, the minimum bet to stream the race is £0.50/€0.50 each way, or £1/€1 win. Some sports are streamed live without the need to place a bet.
