Betfred have a generous welcome offer for their new customers, as they’re offering £30 in free bets as well as 30 free spins when they’ve staked £10 at odds of Evens or more on sports.

Betfred has plenty of betting markets to explore on many different sporting events. They cover different leagues in popular sports such as football with outright markets on popular events such as the Premier League available throughout the season. As well as pre-match events such as the upcoming 2022 World Cup.
However, compared to their competitors, their coverage isn’t as in-depth in popular sports such as football, tennis and basketball. Statistical-based betting is growing in popularity, as punters look to bet on things such as how many shots a player will have during a game or how many corners a team will take in a match. The likes of Sky Bet, Betfair and bet365 all have these types of betting markets, but Betfred doesn’t, which is something that might see potential new customers go elsewhere in search of wider betting markets.
Betfred’s odds are competitive, which will be pleasing to see for any potential new customers looking to sign-up with the bookmaker. This is an important part of picking a place to bet and it’s vital for a bookmaker to offer the best odds otherwise punters are likely to go elsewhere.
A good example of Betfred remaining competitive is the odds they offer for outright betting on the 2022 World Cup. They’re offering odds of 11/2 on France to win the whole tournament, whilst bet365 and Sky Bet are only offering shorter odds on France to win the tournament at a price of 6/1.
Betfred’s odds are primarily offered in fractions, but customers do have the chance to change that to either a decimal or american if they wish to do so at any point.
Live Betting & Streaming
Betfred has plenty of betting markets available in their live betting service. Here, punters can wager funds on plenty of sporting events including some of the most popular such as football, tennis, cricket and basketball. Statistics and regular updates are provided by Betfred on their in-play events, which can help punters to make a selection on the event they wish to wager funds on.
In terms of the betting markets available on some events, there could be more depth. Markets such as ‘Corner Race’ and handicap markets are not available on certain football events whilst in-play, which does put them behind the likes of bet365 and Betfair when it comes to betting markets whilst in-play.
They have live streaming available on their website and mobile app on certain sporting events, which is pleasing to hear for potential new customers. However, there wasn’t as much live streaming coverage compared to the likes of bet365. And even though they’ve got the basics covered, there is room for improvement when it comes to the depth of Betfred’s live streaming.
The collection of games Betfred casino has to offer goes hand in hand with other major operators. Here’s a look at each of the games sections.
You certainly won’t be short of options when it comes to looking for slots-based games at Betfred as they’ve got plenty to choose from throughout your time on their website or mobile app.
There are varying jackpot amounts available to win through Betfred’s slots. Players are able to choose their stakes whilst playing the games making sure there’s something there for users with different budgets. Some of Betfred’s slots games are listed below:
- Age Of The Gods
- Buffalo Blitz
- Epic Ape
- Book Of Kings
- Legacy Of The Tiger
- Atlantis Cash Collect
- The Queen’s Curse
All of their slot games are easy to find with separate subheadings, including the ‘Most Popular’ section, which features plenty of games to choose from.
Card Games and Table Games
There are high and low stakes options when it comes to Roulette and Blackjack, as well as a new Realistic Roulette with 3D animations and multiple camera angles, which keep players entertained. Other games include Baccarat, 3 Card Brag and Jacks or Better.
The card and table games are available to customers whenever they wish to play, which is another real positive.
Betfred’s live casino is a real strong point for the bookmaker compared to some of their competitors as they have plenty of games to choose from. They’re also easy to access which is pleasing to hear for any potential new customers.
The dealers on Betfred’s live casino are friendly whilst the games are taking place and often interact with players that are involved on their specific tables. Below, we’ve listed the games that are available through Betfred’s live casino:
- Spin A Win
- Deal or No Deal The Big Draw
Lotto is another popular feature of Betfred’s website and mobile app with there being many draws to take part in. All of which have varying stakes.
Some of the draws on Betfred’s website can be found below:
- Daily Million
- The Nifty Fifty
All of the draws are clearly displayed and there are FAQs and explanations on how to play each specific lotto game. This is a great feature for potential new players who are looking to play for the first time.
Nifty Fifty is an exclusive 50-ball numbers game. It’s live-streamed by Betfred three times a day (11:30, 14:30, 18:30), and is a hugely popular lotto game for their customers to take part in on a daily basis.
Betfred’s mobile app is available to customers using either iOS or Android devices. It remains hugely popular for users of the bookmaker who can access all the features they have to offer whilst on-the-go. Customers can make deposits and withdrawals, as well as being able to access their sportsbook and play various games which we’ve listed in the previous section.
It’s easy to navigate your way around the Betfred mobile app. But if you do encounter any problems their customer service team is also on hand to help with any queries that users of the bookmaker may have.
The overall layout of Betfred’s mobile app could be improved slightly as areas, such as the weekend’s Premier League football, might be tougher to find than on other bookmaker apps. In order to get around the issue, you have to select the ‘matches’ option after the ‘Premier League’ subheading, before finding the fixtures. Whereas with the likes of Sky Bet and bet365, they’re simple and quick to find for the punter.
The Betfred mobile app can be downloaded using the following links

Betfred has plenty of different ways that customers can contact them if they come across any problems. Below, we’ve listed the methods in which you can contact Betfred:
- Live Chat
Live chat remains the most popular method of communication between customers and Betfred. Their response times are much quicker and the live chat service is available 24/7.
Betfred have separate email addresses to contact them if they encounter any problems on either their sportsbook, casino or games section.
The FAQs section of the website is useful for their customers too, as they can try and find a solution to their problem before going on to contact them directly through live chat, email or by telephone.
Overall Rating: 4/5
Betfred have got plenty of positives going for it, with competitive odds being a major factor in why potential new customers should be looking to sign-up with the bookmaker. Their customer service is another strong point compared to some of their competitors, as they’re often quick in terms of response time.
Their casino and live casino section’s are also impressive, with the range of games they have available being clearly displayed and eye-catching in terms of appearance and colour. Their mobile app is equally impressive, with all the features being easily accessible for customers that are on either an iOS or Android device.
There is a lack of depth in certain betting markets with competitors like bet365, Coral and Sky Bet offering more on statistical-based betting.
