If you are looking for a bookmaker with history then look no further than Betfred. Formed as a single high street shop in 1967, the company has grown from strength to strength and is now one of the biggest UK gambling companies.

With such a rich history behind them they know what they are doing when it comes to running a sportsbook, but do they have what you want?


The welcome offer given out by Betfred is very good and also very easy to follow and unlock. The maximum you will receive is £60 in free bets, not a huge amount but it is very easy for even small staking punters to pick up the full amount here, so it will appeal to them. To qualify for your bonus you need to register with them and place £10 or more on your first bet, which has to be priced up at evens or greater. After this you will receive £60 in free bets, all credited to your account within 48 hours. It is that simple, and to get the £60 you only need to spend £10 of your own cash, which is great for small punters.


Betfred offers a huge range of betting markets and you are sure to find everything you need. From the daily UK horse racing markets they have, to the upcoming snooker tournament and even the latest political betting, Betfred can offer you everything you need.


The in-play section of the Betfred website is separate from their normal sportsbook and can be accessed using the toolbar at the top of the page. This makes it quick and easy to locate, and with in-play betting changing every single second, this is vital to those who bet in-play.

Both the current live events and the ones taking place later are listed here so you can quickly find out if a later event will be live in-play, and plan your betting accordingly. With the ability to cash out your bets and the chance to watch some live events via their streaming service, Betfred reall does have in-play betting covered for you.


The Betfred app is available to download on both Android and iOS so whichever smart phone you have, you will be able to download the app. Inside the app you have everything you need, you can place normal bets as well as in play bets, and you can even live stream through the app so you won’t miss a moment of the action. The app is quick and easy to use, allowing you to continue placing bets while you are out on the go, so you will never miss a thing.
