Betfred Sports Review

Felicity Kay

Betfred is one of the top names in the world of UK bookmakers. Not only have they started out from humble, one-shop traditional beginnings, but they have also now become the official bookie of Wembley stadium. The site itself has a very clean look, is easy to navigate and provides excellent focus on the British (and Irish) sports betting markets. Their depth of coverage and wagering options will make punters of all skill and experience level comfortable.

Software & Graphics

The software which runs the Betfred site is operated by PlayTech, also another well-respected name in the field of online gaming. You will find that everything runs very smoothly without any slowdown in performance. Additionally, it is quite easy to search through all the wagering options and add a bet to your slip. 

Bonuses & Promos

Betfred provides their players with some generous bonuses and promotions. To begin, when making an initial deposit, players will receive the chance to double the odds on their first bet. There are always any number of excellent promotions. Of course, they do vary and are subject to change, so be sure to visit the promotions page for more specific information.


While Betfred is very much geared to the traditional British and Irish sports market, they do offer a very extensive reach of available sports and other betting avenues. Whether you are looking to place a wager on football, horse racing, golf, boxing, darts, cricket or American sports, there is something here to tickle your fancy. Not only that, but making wagers on anything from straight sides to goals scored to complicated combination bets such as teasers and money line parlays is quite easy to execute. 

Mobile Compatibility

Sports bettors will now also be able to log on and take advantage of the new Betfred mobile platform. The mobile sports book is available for the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. New players may even claim a £50 free match bet as a nice welcome bonus for trying out the platform. Of course, joining is easy and then will have access to a new and improved sports book.

Many things in the sports book have been enhanced based on existing player feedback. This includes a touch to add to bet slip feature that ensures you never miss getting a bet down on time. Also, place your singles and multiples all on the same bet slip with the new 'include in multiple bets feature. The design of the bet slip itself has also been changed to be more user friendly; give it a try today! Plus, enjoy one-touch access to the live events section and the betting highlights feature (always know what is happening in the world of sport).


Another area of strength for Betfred is their support. The company makes themselves easily reachable to all punters through email, which is available 24/7. There is also a toll-free UK telephone number and for those who really want an instant answer take advantage of the live chat features. Also, the site itself has a helpful frequently asked questions section along with a betting glossary (can be a big help to beginners just trying to learn the lingo). 

Extra Value

The site itself is quite easy to use. It is uncluttered and almost intuitive; there is a link to take you where you wish to go. The featured events is a great place to get a leg up on what is happening in the world of sports today. If you love playing the ponies, then you will also appreciate the extensive coverage of the British and Irish horse racing market, including commentary.

General Info

When using the site, your betting slip will always appear on the right hand side of the screen, in the same position. Adding a wager to this ticket usually requires only a single click of the mouse. Another interesting feature of the site is the dedicated channels to various sports, most notably golf, football and racing. These are focused on statistics and results, making them excellent places to begin your research or even test out new ideas and 'systems.'
