Right said Fred, that’s not just the name of a well-known British pop group, this is what Betfred’s betting offer could be called. The bookie clearly bears the very British signature when it comes to sports betting. The range of sports betting includes around 20 sports, with king football ranking first. European leagues are available, many betting offers are available for the Champions League. In addition to football, there are numerous typical British sports, such as cricket, bowling and darts. Classic American sports are also a must, such as American football, baseball and other exotic species. The range of sports betting cannot be described as lavish, but those who value exotic sports will get their money’s worth.
Betfred was founded in Great Britain in 1967, with which the betting provider has over half a century of experience in the international sports betting industry. Valid licenses from the British Gambling Commission and the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner ensure a trusting betting environment. While the bookmaker’s greatest strength can be found in the area of betting odds, we found the greatest weakness in the Betfred test in the area of language: Betfred concentrates mainly on sports betting fans from Great Britain and is therefore only available in English.
- Extremely lucrative betting odds
- Safe and serious betting environment
- Bonus offer for new customers
- Transparent limits regarding sports betting
- Mobile accessibility
- Website and support available in English only
- No betting provider without tax
Account opening & first impression
According to the Betfred test reports, the bookmaker’s website is clearly laid out. In the middle are the current live events, on which a bet can be placed with a click. On the left side, the various sports are clearly arranged in alphabetical order. In this way, the desired sporting events can be found quickly. Selected sports bets are automatically transferred to the betting slip with a click of the mouse. In the personal customer area there are also no shortcomings in terms of navigation. According to our Betfred experience, you can get to the deposits and withdrawals or bonus offers in this area with just a few clicks. Even less affine sports betting fans will have no problem finding their way around this betting provider.
The only weakness that we found in our Betfred test as part of the internet presentation is the fact that the internet portal is only available in English . Registration at Betfred can be done free of charge and without any problems. Clicking on the “Sign Up Now” button opens the login screen in which the personal data are entered. The registration is already done and the first deposit can be made.
Betting offer & odds
In our review of Betfred we found that the bookmaker has over 33 different sports for your bets. The betting provider has mainly focused on British sports, which is why snooker, darts, horse racing or football are in the foreground. Betting options for the mainstream sports of tennis, basketball or handball are also offered by this bookmaker.
Fans of marginal sports such as rugby, pool or hurling will get their money’s worth at Betfred. Betfred rounds off its betting offering with the TV Shows / Specials, Politics, Lottery Specials or eSports sections.
What can I bet on?
As the Betfred reviews show, there is not much to complain about in terms of betting depth either. The traditional British company has focused on the British Premier League in football and offers up to 150 single bets in this area . Not only are the regular 1X2 bets available to you, you can also place bets on goalscorers, half-time wins or yellow and red cards. Betfred is very well positioned in the category of American sports. There are far more betting options in American football, baseball or rugby than in the competition.
Betfred betting odds
According to the Betfred test reports, the betting odds can stand out clearly from the competition. Overall, the British betting provider can boast of an average quota key of 94 percent , with which Betfred can secure a place in the ranking in the upper middle field in the odds comparison. The top games in the Premier League rarely complete a game where the odds drop below 95 percent. The odds are extremely stable with this bookmaker. We could not find any tendencies for favorites or outsider bets in our Betfred test. The quotation of the different lots can be described as balanced. Even with exotic sports, the quota keys rarely deviate from the average.
In our experience at Betfred, new customers are greeted with a welcome bonus. This is granted after the registration as well as the first deposit and the first qualifying bet in the form of a freebet worth 30 euros . The amount of this new customer offer certainly does not ensure a ranking among the top 10 in the sports betting comparison. A special bonus code is not required to take advantage of the offer. No payment methods are prescribed for the first qualifying deposit. You can therefore choose your preferred payment option from the betting provider’s portfolio. The free bet worth 30 euros will be automatically made available to you on the betting slip as soon as you have met all the conditions.
As the Betfred reviews show, you can only secure the welcome bonus at Betfred if you are resident in the UK or Ireland. As soon as you have registered a new betting account with this company and made a deposit of at least 10 euros, you can activate the offer . Make sure not to drop below the minimum deposit amount, as you need this amount to activate the new customer offer.
Activation of the welcome offer
In our Betfred experience, the activation of the free bet of 30 euros is possible without any problems. As was shown during our Betfred test phase, you have to place a sports bet to activate the welcome offer, which has a total stake of 10 euros. You must not fall below a minimum quota of 2.00. Important note : Betfred gives you a period of 60 days to activate the new customer bonus, starting from the time of registration. After the deadline, the bonus expires and can no longer be claimed. The free bet is valid for 7 days and can no longer be used after this period.
The bonus terms
If you make a profit with your free bet, the bookmaker first deducts the value of the bet from our test reports to Betfred. Net winnings are subject to Betfred’s Roll Over conditions . Before a withdrawal can be requested, these bonus provisions must be fully met. Under these conditions, the bookmaker prescribes the one-time implementation of the stake in the sports betting area. A minimum quota does not have to be observed. In our Betfred experience, these rollover conditions are moderate and can be met even by the less affine sports betting fans.
How serious is Betfred?
Betfred is one of the most renowned sports betting operators in the international industry. The betting provider has been operating on the market for over half a century, which already speaks for the seriousness of the bookmaker. In addition, Betfred has been granted valid sports betting concessions by the British Gambling Commission and the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner . These licenses are subject to strict regulations, the bookmaker’s compliance with which is checked at regular intervals. If there were violations in this regard, Betfred would have to face severe fines up to the withdrawal of the permit. Fraud or rip off are not to be feared with this operator, as the Betfred test shows.Security is also very important to the British sports betting company. At this bookmaker, all data is transmitted exclusively encrypted using SSL encryption that corresponds to the latest technology.
Deposits and withdrawals
Our Betfred test report shows that sports betting deposits and withdrawals can be made easily and easily with a few mouse clicks in the personal customer area. According to our Betfred experience, unfortunately not all payment methods offered can be used free of charge for a deposit. After some research, we found in the FAQ section that the e-wallet methods Skrill and Neteller are only used once a day free of charge . Each additional deposit is subject to a 2.9 percent fee. You can use the VISA and MasterCard, Neteller, Skrill, Ukash, bank transfer and BTS payment methods to make a deposit with Betfred. Unfortunately, PayPal sports betting cannotto be placed. The minimum deposit amount depends on the chosen payment method and starts with 5 euros for Ukash. For the bank transfer, the deposit amount was set at 125 euros.
As the experience with Betfred shows, you can only pay out for winnings with this bookmaker using the same payment method that you have already used for the deposit. If this is not possible for technical reasons, you have the choice between VISA and MasterCard and bank transfer. Payouts are free of charge, regardless of which payment method you choose. The payment service providers Neteller, Skrill, bank transfer and credit card payments VISA and MasterCard are available. Betfred is known for its quick payout processing. Withdrawals via Neteller or Skrill are transferred within 24 hours. Within the legal framework, Betfred will verify your account and verify your identity before the first payment is transferred. Minimum withdrawal amounts have been set at 10 euros . The limits depend on the chosen payment method. If you choose bank transfer, you can have your winnings paid out indefinitely.
If you have any questions or problems, the bookmaker will provide you with a well-developed FAQ area after our test report on Betfred, but completely in English. In this area, the betting provider presents the most common customer questions in a clear, understandable manner and sorted by topic. Almost all general questions are dealt with in the help section. If you have any questions about your personal customer account, we recommend that you contact the bookmaker directly. In contrast to other betting providers that offer customer support by phone or email, Betfred only provides you with contact via live chat . The traditional British company does not offer telephone or email support. TheLive chat is available around the clock, 7 days a week.
The Betfred test has shown that the British bookmaker is following the mobile trend and is making special apps for iOS and Android available for download free of charge . Alternatively, the mobile web app can be used to access the bookmaker’s services in a modern HTML5 format . In this way, the bookmaker ensures compatibility with all common mobile devices.

It is also positive that you can also take advantage of all bonus offers of the desktop version on the go. Customer support can be used when using the Betfred app via live chat.

The applications for iOS or Android are provided on the website as a link to the corresponding online stores. Before use is possible, these apps must be downloaded and installed on the mobile device. Depending on the performance of the device, this procedure takes a few moments. Alternatively, users of other operating systems can use the web app in HTML5 format to be able to enjoy Betfred’s services on the go.
