Betfred review

Betfred is up there with household names when it comes to the betting public in the UK, with over 1,300 betting shops in UK towns and cities. With its headquarters in Warrington, North West England, Betfred has a proud history of being a betting operator for the people and started life in 1967 when Fred and Peter Done opened a betting shop in Salford, Manchester. Proud Manchester United fans, Done Bookmakers paid out early on some of the Red Devils Premier League title charges in the 1990s and early 2000s, becoming the first bookmaker to do so. The company became Betfred in 2004 when it launched its online business and took Done Bookmakers into the 21st century.

About Betfred

The company also sponsors darts, rugby league and snooker tournaments, including the World Snooker Championship at the world famous Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.

In 2017 Betfred launched its #PickYourPunt feature, which allows you to piece together your own betting combinations from a selection of sports and games.

You can also make #PickYourPunt Builder selections to be bet as combined singles rather than multiples.

However, if you want to use your Betfred sportsbook funds in the casino you have to convert them into casino chips first, which is a useful way to keep track of your sports betting funds.

Betfred summary

If you had to pick holes in Betfred’s online sportsbook offering you could point a finger at the expiry of the welcome offer, which specifies that the free bets gifted have to be placed within seven days. In reality, though, as long as you aren’t leaving the country for a week after you register you should be fine. The sheer amount of sports and markets that Betfred offers gives you plenty of chances to use your free bets. The #PickYourPunt feature is useful, though you should be aware that when using the #PickYourPunt Builder you can’t combine multiple game selections and can use it for same-game multi-pick singles only. The expansion of Double Delight to selected NFL games and regular Free Bet Club affords Betfred universal appeal.
