Betfred Review

Betfred is one of the oldest UK based bookmakers, dating back to its insertion in the gambling industry in 1967. Since then the company has come on leaps and bounds and whilst brick and mortar betting shops were very much their priority, the 21st century has seen them grow and develop into becoming one of the best online bookmakers, not only in the UK, but the world.

One of the outstanding reasons to their continued success is their willingness to provide innovation to what can become a pretty stagnate industry. They were the first company to pay out early on a betting market – Manchester United to win the league in 1998, only for them to be piped by Arsenal – and the introduction of new betting markets such as Goals Galore, Double Delight and Hat Trick Heaven.

Welcome Bonus

Instead of a straight matched bet, Betfred are currently offering punters a £30 freebie when you sign up and bet £10 (that's 300% for the mathematically challenged among you). The free bet will be added within 48 hours of the settlement of your first bet, and expires after 14 days.

Please note: If you deposit via PayPal, Ukash, Moneybookers/Skrill or Neteller you will not be able to claim this bonus.


We’ve already briefly mentioned Goals Galore and Double Delight but it’s exactly these sorts of innovative markets that make Betfred so popular with the punters. The simplicity of them works really well and in the modern day climate are quickly becoming the new accumulator bet for football punters.

Over the last few years Betfred have worked very hard on their mobile betting app as well. When we first looked at it back in 2009 the app was a pixelated excuse for an app, especially with the ones that we were used to in the marketplace. Now however, the app is a slick, shiny, well functioned betting application with pretty much every amenity on there that would find on the site itself. It’s obvious that they have poured a lot of money and man power into producing the next generation betting platform, which is mobile betting.

Sticking with football, Betfred have recently released their Football Analyser system which shows which teams are the most likely to win over that coming game week. You can also click on each individual game to see interesting betting facts from previous meeting and current form, likelihood of each result and the latest odds from the more popular markets. Betfred claims that the information on the Football analyser is very similar to the information that they would use to set initial betting lines for each game.
