Betfred is one of the largest Bookmakers in the UK with over 1350 betting shops up and down the country. Fred Done its founder established the brand in Salford in 1967 and since then it has gone from strength to strength.
Betfred is a name that is synonymous with betting and punters will be happy to know that the service provided in their betting app is on par with their reputation as trusted and reliable Bookmakers.
Mobile Offers & Promotions
Betfred are offering all new punters a £50 welcome bonus, risk free bet to take advantage of, so if you lose your first bet up to £50, you’ll get all your money refunded without a moment’s thought. This is a great way to be greeted and ensures that you don’t have a sour taste in your mouth if you don’t win on your first bet.
Features & Interface
Betfred employs one of the most unique features we’ve come across on a betting app, because when you sign in for the first time, you’ll have to create a PIN number, so the next time you log in, instead of having to enter your username and password, you simply punch in your 4 digit PIN and you’re logged in, saving you the time and effort of typing it all out.
You’ll notice the quick links on the homepage, which will allow you access to all the usual sports markets that you can select. Of course there’s the ubiquitous In-Play betting section which Betfred manages well, here you can check the start times of the games happening that day and what games are occurring, the only drawback is that it doesn’t allow you to filter by sport, so you have to trawl through the entire list to find the game you are looking for.
The “Next Events Off” section is a nice feature which allows you to find out when is the next greyhound or horse racing event without having to check the In-Play betting feed and gives you immediate access to that market.
Betfred App: Overview, Design & Feel
One of the standout features of the Betfred betting app is the ability to work the app in landscape and portrait mode, which is really useful, especially if you want to use the whole width of the screen and something we’d like to see incorporated into more apps as time goes on.
The Betfred app is by no means the most stylish app we’ve seen, but it is very quick and provides all the information you could need in simple lists on a white background that is nice and easy to read. The icons for the sports add a bit more style to the app but essentially, this is quick app that will not let you down when you want to make a bet.
The navigation bar at the bottom covers everything you could want from a betting app, with the usual access to the home screen, markets, account and help.
The Betfred app offers all the sports you can find on their website, just over 20 in total, from horse racing to greyhounds, cricket to tennis, you can’t complain about the choice of sports on offer. Betfred does a good job at catering for punters interested in betting on the horses or the dogs, and this is definitely a good app to have in your pocket if that’s your game.
Cashier & Support
The Banking section allows you to make deposits and withdrawals and add or remove credit cards, however you can’t add e-wallets like Moneybookers or Neteller via the app, you’ll have to do that via the website.
Betfred’s support is one of the best in the business and they offer not one, but two telephone help lines for you to call. There is also email and a text support available, where you just have to test “help” to them and they’ll call you back.
How to Place a Bet on the Betfred App?
Placing a bet is a breeze. After you’ve decided which game you want to bet on, you’ll be greeted with your betting slip, which is one of the most comprehensive we’ve seen, here you can increase or decrease your bet and find out how much you stand to win.
