It was more than 50 years ago when the Done brothers took the first betslip in their hands. In half a century they went from a retailed shop in Salford to being a national power in the gambling industry. And since 2004 they went global. All these under the same moto. “[y]our fun and friendly betting and gaming experience.” In all of these years, they try to hear the bettors and their desires. And fulfil them. Even in the online era, the support department is trying hard to play that role. And they are successful in that, considered the odds or the promotions they offer. But they need to do something about the variety. Of markets and events. And then they could claim a global throne. Could they do it? They are faraway(so close) as u2 says.
Could easily be considered as one of the top bookmakers when it comes to football odds. Highly competitive with industry’s big heads especially in Premier League and other major European leagues. Need some improvement with other football events though. Their margin for football is at 3,5% which is considered low (their overall in sports book is 4,8% to 5%). Quite impressive in our opinion and a very good reason to go on with them. Equally high are the special markets, but not so many as we might expect. And certainly fall short to competition.
We didn’t like also that Asian Handicap isn’t an option. But what it came as a great surprise was that in H2H (Head to Head) markets they could easily be placed in world’s top-5.
When it comes to other sports, if you exclude Horse Racing, the odds and the variety isn’t quite what you’d call satisfying. They cover the sports (something around 20 or so) an average bookmaker would do, but you get the feeling that they only do it to fill the open space in their website. E-sports and non-sports bets(TV-shows, politics) are also available. Overall our impression is that it operates as a traditional British bookmaker, but should go global real soon.
Betting in Betfred’s In-Play platform is quite pleasuring. And pretty efficient too. It’s a well-designed and smoothly operated platform and you can even customize it according to your needs. Just simply change the filters and your markets of interest will come up in the front. You can find very detailed statistics which will help you to make the right decision during the game. The cash-out option is also available and works really fast.
Sadly the live-stream service is limited only in Horse and Greyhound Racing. Note that in order to have the live-stream service you should wage at least £1.
Betfred Bonus/ Offers
Claim your bonus as soon as you finish your registration. Simply make a deposit (at least £10), place a bet of £10 with odds 2,00 or greater and you’ll get £30 in free-bets. The free bets will be available within 48 hours. Additionally, you’ll receive 30 free spins.
They call it “Pick yourPunt Builder”. Every day you can go to this specific section of their site and see the available matches. Once you decide which will be your favour they boost the odds making them even greater than you’d ever imagine.
“Double Delight” is a great promotion offered by Betfred. It centres on the first goal scorer of a match. If you guess correctly then BetFred will double your winnings if he scores another goal in the match. But probably the most notable promotion is “Goals Galore”. They provide a list of matches and punters can muster an accumulator of their choosing made up from the list. The odds of this promotion are simply sky-high.
No special promotions for casino players besides the 30 free spins offered as part of the welcome bonus.
