After opening their first store in the 1960s Betfred have grown into one of the UK’s largest independent bookmakers both on the high street and online. Below we take a closer look at the Betfred website, betfred free bets, betfred signup bonus and what is on offer…

The website

It might not be the nicest of websites to look at but it’s extremely easy to navigate. Popular sports can be found down the left hand side while all main areas of the website can be accessed using the bar at the top.

If you click on the sports tab then you’ll go through to a holding page which displays a list of all sports available as well as in-play events. The bar on the right hand side displays popular bets which can be added to your bet slip with one simple quick. As betting websites and apps go, Betfred is relatively simple to use and it’s quick as you’d expect.

Sign up offer

New customers can bag £30 in free bets when they sign up to Betfred and deposit and stake at least £10. Qualifying bets can be placed on all sports book markets as long as odds are greater than evens. You can back singles or multiples and once your qualifying bet has been settled free bets will be credited within 10 hours.

As with most bookmakers free bet stakes are not returned in any winnings and they can not be withdrawn. Check out the full T&C’s for more information. It’s also worth noting and checking if any other family member has a Betfred account. The offer only applies to the first person signing up using a specific address. So you won’t qualify for the offer if your girlfriend or Dad has already signed up and received the free bets

Range of sports and markets

Betfred offer markets on all major sporting events along with more niche betting opportunities. As you’d expect there are hundreds of markets available on football, rugby league, tennis, horse racing, greyhounds and more.

Whether you want to bet on the World Cup or X Factor Betfred offer markets for all events. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on site then drop them a message on Twitter and they’ll speak to the traders for you.

Fred’s Pushes

Fred’s Pushes are common knowledge for punters who regularly place bets in store, available at lunchtime and teatime during the week and from 9:30am on Saturdays Betfred offer enhanced odds on selected horses and footy. Fred’s pushes are also available online and can be accessed via the horse racing section of the website. But hurry, horse racing offers don’t tend to be open for too long!

Keep an eye on their Twitter page for all of Fred’s latest price boosts and offers.

Pick Your Punt

With Betfred’s Pick Your Punt the power is in your hands! The feature allows you to create your own unique bets by combining standard markets for added value. Markets include match result, player to score first or anytime, player to be sent off, corners, total goals and more.

Pick Your Punt is available on selected events, check the schedule and keep up to date. Betfred build a number of requests themselves, these can be found in the match market. Betfred recently launched Pick Your Punt bet builder which allows you to create the bets yourself and receive a price instantly. So there’s no waiting around! But if there’s a request you’d like pricing up that can’t be done with their new feature then tweet Betfred using #PickYourPunt and they’ll get it priced up for you.

Double Delight & Hat-trick Heaven

Unique to Betfred is Double Delight & Hat-trick Heaven on first goalscorer and try scorer bets. If your selected player scores the first goal or try and then goes on to score again Betfred will double the odds. Your first goal scorer price will be trebled if your player scores a hat-trick! This feature is available on selected football matches and all live Super League games (double delight applies to all non-televised Super League games.)

Betfred have recently launched this feature in play on selected football games and is applicable to next goal scorer bets!

One thing to bear in mind with this feature is that odds are not as competitive on the market. You’ll find other bookmakers offering better prices on first goal scorer betting. But obviously odds are not doubled if your selection goes on to score again.

Best Odds Guaranteed

Betfred have been at the heart of horse racing for decades and they take great pride in that. Which is why they offer customers best odds guaranteed on all UK and Irish racing online. So if you take an early price on your selection and the SP is bigger then you’ll get paid out at the bigger price. This applies to bets placed after 8am, but does not apply to Lucky 15s, 31s and 63s or ante post bets.

Racing Post Stats

Betfred have teamed up with the Racing Post to provide well researched statistics on horse racing, football and greyhounds. This is brilliant if you like to conduct research before each punt or study the form. With the horses, there’s a snippet for each selection along with the Racing Post’s verdict, which is always a good indicator.

Betfred VIP

If you’re a regular punter with Betfred online then you could qualify for Betfred VIP. This enables users who regularly bet on sport or games to gain access to a selection of features including:

–          Access to a dedicated VIP customer support team

–          Hospitality and exclusive events

–          Around the clock support

–          Race day passes

As a whole the Betfred website is quick and easy to navigate. There exciting offers for both existing and new customers to enhance your betting experience. Features including Pick Your Punt and Double Dlight & Hat-trick Heaven make signing up and using Betfred worthwhile.
