Betfred Sportsbook

Betfred’s sportsbook is one of the best around in the online gaming world. They have a huge variety of markets available and of course, offer live betting on many of these events.

They offer all the major sporting markets from American football to the UFC/MMA and even offer markets on eSports, politics and lottery specials, so, there really is something for everyone.

Horse Racing           

Horse racing is something that Betfred excel at. Not only do they offer great odds on horse racing daily but they also have a number of offers that really give their punters the best experience possible.

As horse racing is one of the favourite sports to bet on amongst the UK punters, Betfred constantly comes up with new promotions to give you a little bit extra. 

To find all the current promotions at Betfred visit our Promotion page. You can also browse through all the other available offers at Betfred, such as general sportsbook offers, casino, bingo, lottery or poker offers.

Betfred Watch Live

Another fantastic feature that Betfred now offer is the ability to watch live sport. With live streams and online viewing seeming to be the future of sports watching Betfred are making sure to keep up with trends in order to give their customers the best experience possible.

Simply place a bet on certain selected events and then you can watch it live.

Betfred even allows customers to watch certain events that they haven’t even wagered on which is very generous considering some rivals don’t even let their customers watch events without wagering certain amounts of money first.

Betfred can’t stream every sporting event but we were quite impressed by what they had to offer. Football, Tennis, Basketball, and many more sports are covered and they also show an extensive amount of British and Irish horse racing.

Betfred Virtual

Virtual Sports – not to be confused with eSports– are a growing and popular new market among online gamblers. Betfred truly does great work when it comes to their virtual sports as from what we have seen they lead the market in innovation and creativity.

Not only do they have a lot of different variations of the normal virtual sporting markets such as football and horse racing, but they have also have boxing, cycling, and darts which are extremely fun to play.

Betfred also makes the virtual experience much more exciting with their on-demand section. In this section you can explore the different worlds of virtual sports; you can watch a whole football season unfold in front of your eyes, watch your very own custom Ryder cup match or do some on-demand horse racing and be in control of your very own race.

When it comes to virtual sports Betfred really are leading the way with their new and exciting games and experiences for their customers.

Betfred Casino

Betfred are one of the market leaders when it comes to casino.

When you are navigating their website, it was quite easy to see why this is. Betfred’s sheer quantity of casino and similar games means that any user is spoiled for choice.

You could play all day and still not get through everything that they have available to their customers.

They have the usual poker, blackjack and roulette games while also offering a vast choice of interesting themed games such as card games based off movies and TV shows as well as jackpot games in collaboration with sports stars like AP McCoy and Ronnie O’ Sullivan.

These competition points can be then changed into cash. There’s conversion table available on the site when you click the more details button.

Betfred Mobile

betfred mobile appA crucial element for any successful online gambling site these days is an app that complements the desktop experience that the company offers.

The Betfred app certainly falls into this category. While other betting companies sometimes tend to overload the senses by trying to fit everything on the home page of their app Betfred have gone for a simpler look and their homepage has a dressed down relaxed feel to it.

The app which is available on Android and iOS has an easy to swipe sports options along the top of the screen, as well as market odds available at your fingertips, which makes online gambling on your phone as easy as it has ever been.

Betfred Customer Support

  • Live Chat 24/7
  • Email
  • Phone

One of the things we liked best about Betfred was their customer support and there’s one main reason for this: the accessibility of their 24/7 chat.

One of the most common complaints about betting companies customer service is how difficult they are to reach. Most customers today prefer the live chat message over e-mail or phone call as it is the fastest and cheapest route but unfortunately, most gambling sites make the live chat very difficult to find and it can even take several minutes and many pages to finally navigate to it.

Betfred, on the other hand, does the opposite and the pop-up window is always available at the bottom of the screen no matter what page you are on.

Sending an email or calling are also possible, and although not instant like those other options, they were very fast and responsive in our use of the service. Even post remains an option if you are so inclined.

Betfred also offers different phone numbers and e-mail addresses for the different sections of their website such as sports and poker. This allows them to get through more customer queries at a faster pace. You also can, of course, bet over the phone if this is your preferred method of communication.


The minimum Deposit  is £10.
Betfred accepts several credit/debit cards including:

  • Visa
  • Visa Electron
