Betfred

Summary

It just gets better and better for Betfred customers, with this bookmaker having rapidly improved their online offering in recent months and years. There are lots of reasons to have an account with this firm, especially since Betfred launched their In-Play service which is among the best in the industry.

Customers wanting to bet In-Play can now enjoy Betfred's excellent betstream technology which not only has the odds updating in real time but also has all the information you need to place an informed live bet. There is nearly always a sporting event being covered on the live In-Play console, with football and tennis the most popular sports for In-Play betting.

Betfred will be providing an outstanding betting service when it comes to Euro 2012 and that includes a wide range of markets and also money back specials on every single match at the European Championship.

New customers can claim a free £50 bet with Betfred when they register. You can either sign up online or text MAX to 89660 on your mobile phone to claim the biggest bonus possible.

Wagering Requirement

The cumulative odds of the selections on your first bet must be Evens (2.0) or greater. If the odds of the selections on your first bet are less than Evens (2.0), you will not be eligible for a free bet.

Background

Betfred, formerly known as Dones, was established in 1967 by Peter and Fred Done. It’s the latter who now chairs and plays an active role in promoting the company, to the extent where you can find his portrait on the website homepage! Nevertheless, this is a bookmaker to be taken seriously, especially when you consider they are the world’s biggest independent bookmaker with a combined turnover of £1.5billion.

As is the case with a number of firms, Betfred started out as a series of betting shops in the north-west, gradually branching out geographically before introducing telephone betting in 2002 and launching their online operation in 2004. Fred Done likes to regard himself as the ‘Bonus King’ and the company claim they invented the Lucky 15 bet and were the first to offer daily early price races in the UK.

Odds and Markets

As mentioned above, this is the self-proclaimed Bonus King we’re talking about! Therefore, if you like the idea of added value, it’s well worth signing up. You’ll regularly find the firm offering extra places on big horse races, as well as improved each-way terms on sporting events with big fields, such as golf and sometimes football.

The odds are pretty good across the board too. You’ll regularly find Betfred in a gutsy mode, sticking their head above the parapet for some of the big matches, especially where their beloved Manchester United are concerned! They’re especially good for UK racing and football, betting to tight margins and regularly adding bonuses to successful accumulators.

They’ve got a fairly tidy range of markets on most sports, if not spectacular. Expect to find around 20 pre-match football markets on the big games and a handful if In-Play opportunities. Check out their 7th Heaven Bonus Coupon where you get enhanced odds providing you place a minimum treble.
