BetFred Casino Review

BetFred Casino betfred casino review
Rated 4/5 by

Betfred was founded in 1967 by Fred Done and his brother Peter, and he soon became known as the “Bonus King” thanks to the generous joining bonuses offered to prospective clients. Today, that reputation still stands with the BetFred casino, thanks to an amazingly generous Welcome Bonus of up to £200, (depending on deposit) when you sign up to their online casino, plus a totally free £10 Live Casino bonus before you deposit any money at all. Generous or what?!

BetFred Casino Navigation was launched in 2004, and Betfred mobile in 2006, putting these guys at the forefront of technological advances in online gaming since their inception. However, it is surprisingly uncluttered and organised for an older site, and looks impressively polished.  

When you land on the site, the subtle navy blue dominates the screen, and, unlike most online casinos, colour is kept to a minimum. The simple white on blue text makes reading the site easy, and navigation is easy via the tabs and side panel links, leading you to Game Selections and Quick Links.

Against the navy background, all further links are easy to find and simple to follow, including the social media widgets (Twitter, Facebook, Google + and YouTube), and there is no missing the subtle Sign Up and Log In tabs. There is a lot to be said for simplicity, and Betfred get this bang on.

Like most large online casinos, BetFred Casino offer either a download of software or an immediate in browser gameplay, so the choice is yours. It is worth noting however, that free play is only available in the browser version of game play.

Navy on white sub tabs neatly link to give information about recent casino winners too, and includes not just the players’ initials and total won, but news about games played, bets placed and even interviews with some winners. This is bound to please statistic hunters amongst you, and provides a fascinating insight into the mind of the winners.  There is also information about New Games, Promotions, plus quick links to other areas of the site, including Bingo, Poker, Lotto, Sport and much more.

Betfred Casino Games

Like some other major online casinos, Betfred also offers a Live Casino option, as well as an online gaming site, where real dealers lead live games of Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and Hold ‘Em. This will certainly suit a certain type of gamer, but for the majority of players the downloadable casino will be preferable, where you can choose from 170 games, compared to 120 when playing in the web browser.

Gameplay, as the site would indicate, is crisp and smooth, and graphics slick, modern and not at all dated. Some include short movies or videos, and others are more basic, but on each game you will be impressed with the quality and effects.

As well as offering a huge welcome bonus, Betfred looks after its regular players. There is a whole spiel of regular promotions, including a Happy Hour, High Roller bonus and Refer a Friend, as well as Comp Points which can be gained each time you bet.

Player Support and Payment Options

Click on the FAQ button in the bottom left hand of the screen and a new window opens with a series of help questions. This is not just the FAQ section for the online casino, but for all Betfred services, so if you happen to have any other queries regarding sportsbook or other play, you will find the answers here. In case you cannot find your answers here, there is a Live Help service easily accessible from this window, or you can email, phone or even Tweet for assistance 24/7.

In order to deposit your money and get that whopping 100% bonus, you can easily use a credit or debit card, Paypal, BACS, Bankers Draft, Neteller or even go into one of Betfred’s stores. Betfred started off with one high street store back in 1967, and it’s great to see that their 800 plus high street shops today still have a place in the online world, no matter how small.


Betfred offer a slick, sophisticated and sleek approach to online gaming, and are a gaming site aimed at adults, for adults. No cartoon characters or bright colours here, it’s neat, tidy and professional, and certainly gives the gamer every confidence that their next bet with Betfred will be the winning one.
