Betfred has been on the British gambling market for over fifty years. Gradually, the brand has become recognizable and the company has become increasingly sought after by customers across the country. European bettors have also become actively involved in the services the bookmaker provides.

In today's review, our project offers you an insight into the sports betting system and software components the company uses. We will give you an objective assessment of the quality of the areas Betfred offers as at August 2022.

Official website of bookie

Official website of bookie

The site's design is dominated by blue and white, which doesn't strain the eye and looks good in contrast. On the centre position of the sidebar, there's a slider showing current bonuses and promotions. The odds for a particular sport can be accessed either from the top menu or from the left-hand side of the screen. Under the list of menu categories, there are also direct links to the general information sections on the left-hand side, including education about sports betting.

Below the slider with the current banners about bonuses there is a line of odds before the match. Above all, the most popular football events are displayed, which is probably logical and justified, given the preferences of British bettors.

The performance of the Betfred online resource is at a good level. And the menu integrity is good enough for new customers to know straight away where to find interesting information.

Security methods

As well as using strong data encryption methods on its platforms, Betfred also takes care of responsible betting on the part of its users. To this end, the company has introduced a special blog with betting tips. The website and mobile app also allow users to limit their spending. The Safe Gambling Charter, set out in five pages of printed text, is also freely available. So there is no shortage of information for punters in this matter.

Welcome Bonus from Betfred

The New Player Bonus is restricted to British and Irish residents. It's a very solid reward (£60 as a freebie), but the following conditions should be strictly adhered to:

  • only fund your account with debit cards such as VISA/MasterCard;
  • make a qualifying wager of a minimum of £10 no later than 7 days after creating your account;
  • freebet can be used within a week of receiving it, otherwise it will be burned.

On the plus side of the Betfred welcome offer, there is no limit on the odds for qualifying bets. It also does not make any difference which market you select for your first bet. 

Promo codes

The access to more discounts on bonuses from the company in August 2022 is promotional code SPORTS60. All you have to do is enter it during the registration phase and new opportunities will open up. In particular, new users will get access to the Bet £10 Get £60 offer.

Offers for current clients

There are no offers for VIP's or Loyalty Club. However, there are other benefits for current clients that are worth investigating. Above all, there are daily promotions for individual sports, not necessarily football. There are also bonuses for maximum odds, improved prices, and other popular offers for existing players that will appeal to just about everyone who likes to bet.

Mobile App of Betfred

All of the functions of the official website can also be found on Betfred's mobile products. You can download the mobile betting app freely from the AppStore or Google Play, depending on which operating system you are using on your mobile. In terms of usability, mobile apps are just as good as the desktop version, and in some ways superior. At least the Betfred mobile app is not overloaded with unnecessary information - everything is clear and simple enough.

Additional features

There isn't really anything gimmicky about the company but additional features are still present. However, they are so trivial for the second half of 2022 that very soon we will consider their presence the norm for every UK bookmaker that respects itself and its customers.

Live Streaming

With its exclusive online video streaming platform, the bookmaker is ready to offer high quality streaming. This feature is one of those that elevates Betfred's bookies to the ranks of the best in the business.

#PickYourPunt function

Create a market on your own, along with a quote, here most often provides an opportunity in rare markets. For example, television talk shows or presidential elections fall into this category. However, that doesn't mean that you can't create a bet at Betfred using #PickYourPunt on football. Either way, the bookmaker has the final say in the matter.

Cash Out

The advantage of Betfred's early payout feature is that it is a partial cash out, which is of course only available if the customer wishes to keep part of the money.

Final say

The experience of this company in the sports betting market has to be paid tribute. Nevertheless, on many issues Betfred still needs to improve. One such area is the eSports line. Also the introduction of more methods of depositing a gaming account would not be unreasonable, as would expanding the picture in the matter of payments to external wallets. Of course, it is good to be able to contact the support team by phone and generally when the number of communication channels is maximised.

Among the positive aspects of the bookmaker's company we should mention the mobile app, which is equally well developed for iPhones and Android smartphones. The high level of freebies for new players also draws attention, and is higher than that of competitors, including the best in the British market.



There are five steps involved in setting up a Betfred account. Don't be daunted by the sheer number and length of the process, it really isn't as complicated as it first appears. In the first stage of registration you need to create a username and password as well as read the rules of the bookmaker's office. You must confirm your acceptance of them by ticking the box.

The second, third and fourth steps to create an account involve entering personal details (name, surname, home address, e-mail and mobile phone number). And in order to secure all of the above, you will need to tick off your bonuses preferences. At the final stage of registration, punter can also enter a promo code, which will be explained in detail below. The only thing left to do is to click on the "Register" button to become a full Betfred bookmaker's client.

Restrictions on registration

Non UK residents, and anyone under the age of 18 are not permitted to register. Also Betfred do not allow multi-accounting on their site. You may also experience problems if your IP address has already been used to create a gambling account.

Verifying methods at Betfred

The verification process is quick and easy, as it is done automatically. In 90% of cases we will check your details automatically. If you have any further questions, you will still be asked for high quality photos of your documents and utility bills. This does not always happen.


Only six channels are available at the bookie for deposits. Even for payouts, there are more than that, seven. There is also the Skrill Wallet, which you can't use to make a deposit at Betfred. The Skrill+ systems can actually be used to make deposits, but only optionally.

The disadvantage of depositing with Betfred is the lack of cryptocurrencies. By the second half of 2022 it would be time to fix it, but for now we'll write this parameter down as a bold disadvantage of the company. Credit cards can't be used for deposits either, but that's a requirement of UK legislation from April 2020.

If you want to use the still most popular method of funding your account, the debit card, then you should know that the deposit amount varies from £5 to £20,000. Withdrawals by this method can be up to £9,999.

It's important to mention that for NETELLER system the withdrawal fee is 2% of the amount. But only if the deposit was not made from the same purse. If you have already deposited your money the commission will be zero.

Pre-match line

The pre-match line odds list only shows 22 sports. This is an unusually low number when compared to other experienced bookies in the UK market. On the other hand, all the popular sports are fairly well represented here, and there are also opportunities to bet on their favourite markets for Hurling fans.

However, if we want a comprehensive analysis, we can't do without football. The line-up for popular football tournaments and top clubs' matches will be the best marker for the betting office as a whole. Two things are immediately apparent. Firstly, Betfred's margin is quite large at 8-9%. Well secondly, the breadth of the football odds spread leaves a lot to be desired, not even being above average.

Each user of this bookmaker's website and mobile app can change the appearance of the odds if they wish. There are three types available:

  • European;
  • Fractional;
  • American.
LIVE betting mode at Betfred

LIVE betting mode at Betfred

With the switch to in-play mode the quality of the line remains the same, very mediocre. The line-up is not bad, but the impression is worsened by the small number of betting options within one market, for example, European handicaps. It is worth noting that Betfred's live mode is saved by the quality of graphics and match centre. There is also video streaming available for a number of matches in football, tennis and other popular disciplines, which will be discussed in more detail below.

Betting on esport

Let's not claim, however, that Betfred completely ignores cyber sports disciplines. But we are surprised to see that there are almost no matches from them in the schedule for the prestigious CSGO and Dota 2 tournaments. So we recommend that esport fans look for other betting sites.


Customer support Betfred

Betfred offers help to customers who are not yet familiar with the functions of the software. It contains answers to frequently asked questions, saving time and effort.

If you cannot solve your question in the special section of the website, you can always use an alternative, i.e. live chat. The response rate of the technical support team is very fast, the answers are always reasoned and complete. The method of contacting us using the feedback form is equally efficient, although less so.

Questions and answers

🎲 How long on average do I have to wait for my withdrawal?

In most channels the money will reach the account within two days after ordering a withdrawal. In some cases this period extends to three or even five days. On the other hand, most requests are satisfied almost immediately, within 15 minutes.

🎲 Can I delete my Betfred betting account?

You can delete your account by contacting the technical support team. Technically it is possible, no problems.

🎲 May i place a bet on CSGO at the bookie’s website?

No, this discipline is not in the bookmaker's lineup, like all other esport disciplines.

🎲 How many events must a Betfred accumulator contain?

If you add multiple bets to your betting line-up, the Multiples feature is initially available for two or three events. If the number of bets increases to four, the Accumulator mode is activated.

🎲 What is the minimum deposit requirement for a bank card?

A deposit can also be made for £5. But if the punter wants to take part in the welcome bonus, then the deposit should be only for £10 minimum.
