Betfred Review

A bookmaker with a wide range of markets and quality football coupons. Usability and design could be improved.

Betfred is an old school bookmaker who offer a lot of options. They dont really have a primary focus and their services include lotto, casino & football. If you want a one stop shop for all your betting needs then Betfred might be for you. The football coupons they do offer are some of the most famous around including goals galore and 30 minute limit. They have a number of applications but none of them feel truly polished. You can get the job done on them, but it can be a frustrating experienve at times. Betfred are one of the major bookmakers that don’t offer a cashout feature, so if this key, please read our William Hill review, Bet365 review, Betfair review or Paddy Power review. Overall they have a decent product, and the wide range of services boosts them above an average rating.

About Betfred

Betfred is a United Kingdom-based bookmaker, named after its co-founder Fred Done . The company has more than 1350 betting shops making it one of the largest bookmakers on the UK high street. They’ve always been well known on the high street and they’ve really come to the forefront of the industry with their use of fixed odds coupons such as  goals galore and anytime you like. If your a big fan of fixed odds coupons then you probably need to be with Betfred. This Review will primarily look at what Betfred does as an online bookmaker, focusing on football accumulators. We will however expand into the other markets they offer including the Casino, Poker and bingo offerings.

Offers:

Betfred fixed odds coupons fall into this category and offer some of the best value on football at betred. Apart from the occassional money back offer and price boost there isn’t really anything to shout about. If you are going to place a first goalscorer bet then Betfred is useful as they offer the double delight & Hat-trick heaven offer, where if the first goalscorer scores 2 or 3, your odds will double or treble respecitvely.

Site usability:

We find Betfred one of the less user friendly betting sites out there. The layout is oldschool and whilst design doesn’t have to be a big part of a nice betting experience it just makes it more complicated to navigate than it needs to be. Their user-interface can be quite slow & clunky, which makes the experience less than pleasurable. That said it’s not unusable by any means. We can get to the parts of the site that we want, i.e the fixed odds coupons, and when inside the coupons the layout is generally easy to navigate, and as from there it’s easy to place your bet accurately.

Mobile application:

Betfred have a number of different applications, the means we are able to just use the ones we need. The goals galore one is picture below is great if thats the coupon you want, but if you want to bet on something else you have to get the other apps. This is a tough one to judge because we like the fact that all the features are stripped out, and you can have a specialist app, but we don’t like having more than one Betfred app. The apps are very well put together and for that reason they get a good mark, but not perfect.

Odds:

The odds at Betfred seem to be quite reasonable, their doesn’t seem to be anything outstanding about them, and when comparing them to other book makers, than can be marginally smaller. Mainly they are inline with other high-street bookmakers, but rarely above. When you compare the fixed odds coupons to similar bookmakers that’s were you find some good value. Making betfred your betting home should on be done if that’s all you bet on.

Coupons:

Betfred call themselves the bonus king, however the coupon king is probably more appropriate. They often come out with great coupons, especially the fixed odds one such as anytime you like, goals galore and 30 minute limit . These give boosted odds on set fixture and are great bets to take down the pub with your mates. They cover the basic coupons in nice easy formats, a joy to use.

Casino:

The Betfred Casino is all singing all dancing, it has live dealers and a huge amount of games. Our main problem, you have to download and install it on your pc. The extra hassle just isn’t needed nowadays especially when so many other providers are able to provide a similar or better experience online. Betfred do offer access to the lotto, bingo and scratch cards, areas many of the other big casinos neglect, so if you like having a little gamble on alternative services then the casino may be worth downloading and trialing.

Poker:

Betfred Poker has had over 500,000 downloads, but don’t get that confused with 500,000 players. You can always find a game, but as above there are better providers out there. If your not a serious poker player, it will be enough.
