Betfred, despite being an independent bookmaker, don’t hold back when it comes to market odds. They are as competitive as the major players in the industry and so punters don’t come up short with Betfred. They are very good with their live market prices, it has to be noted. You are looking at about a 4.3% profit margin which they operate at on the football markets, which is pretty good in favour of the punter.
They are a big deal and turnover around £2 million each year. They actually run off a very good reputation of being fair and that is a huge compliment to them. As for their sportsbook, it doesn’t fall down in any areas in which you look. There is a great variety in there covering the big horse racing markets, soccer and tennis, all the way through the smaller markets like handball and volleyball. There is great coverage of non-sporting events in their sportsbook as well. An area which they do push more than most is in the Lottery area, offering a lot of specials there.
With them being so strongly linked with British horseracing, and holding exclusive licences to operate the Tote, they back it all up with a fantastic horse racing section on their site. They do bring in racecards from around the world. Incidentally, if you aren’t sure of a coupon, they have a great section simply called Coupons Explained to help you out. The presentation of the markets and odds is clear and there is a solid betting slip on the back end to use as well. Very good sportsbook from an operational point of view.
Their promotions section is the big stand out feature the Betfred website. It is pretty immense and will overshadow most other online bookmakers out there. That’s not an exaggeration. There are also great features around with special coupons, such as their 30 Minute Limit and Goals Galore offering. You can add in great live in play options (particularly on football) and there are extras like virtual sports, mobile betting and even a VIP section.
They welcome new customers with open arms of course and they are offer up a £30 free bet for qualifying new customers. Betfred deliver an absolute ton of promotions, whether it is in the casino, poker or games sections. Specifically in the sports promotions they pack a big punch alone. They have long standing offers like their Double Delight & Hat Trick Heaven football offer which can double or treble your first goalscorer odds. There is best odds guaranteed on the horses and they run a lot of event-specific money back specials and roll out enhanced odds now and again as well. They are known as the Bonus King for a reason.
You can get live help direct on the site 24/7 which is the best way to get any help that you need from the bookmaker. You can of course email them or give them a call on their dedicated customer service phone lines. Good support package available as you would expect.
Review and Rating
Superb offering from the independent bookmaker. The value that they throw out to enhance your betting through their promotions is simply too good to ignore. With a good sportsbook, strong market odds and great touches around the site such as their live betting, their media hub, they really are one of the standout operators available.
