#Ad: Betfred review based on personal experience/opinion and for reference purposes only.

Betfred are one of the leading online bookmakers currently operating in the UK, having grown massively since their humble beginnings on the high street in the North of England.

Since their first shop opened in 1967, Fred and Peter Done and have built one of the most innovative bookmakers, now operating hundreds of shops in addition to their online presence.

As one of the earlier bookmakers to venture online, Betfred launched their online betting portal back in 2004, and have gone from strength to strength over the past few years.

While Betfred.com are rare in the fact that they still operate high street shops, they’ve built a reputation for offering a fantastic range of markets, competitive odds and unique betting offers.

Betfred was established in the North of England, and while they have massively increased their presence, they still operate out of their Warrington offices, while sitting under the Petfre brand.

It’s hard competing against big players like Bet365 and William Hill, but Betfred have done extremely well and are now considered a great option for betting on football and horse racing.

Betfred have put a lot of thought into their betting portals, which enables you to have a seamless experience from opening an account right through to placing bets and withdrawing winnings.

Both their website and the accompanying Betfred App are easy to navigate, and there are some great resources such as the Racing Post Betfinder which was launched in 2019.

It's brilliant addition for horse racing fans, as you can filter down markets to find the exact bets you want to place, based on what’s important to you such as Distance Form, Trainer Form etc.

We’ve been long-time admirers of Betfred, and the improvements and additions to the variety in the markets, betting offers and extremely high payouts only adds to their appeal.

Betfred are also big sponsors of major horse racing events, and given this is one of their strongest market offerings, an account is a must for Horse Racing fans - especially with horse racing promotions like their ‘Free Bet if 2nd’ and ‘Pay Extra Places’ on offer.

Betfred Betting Markets

You’ll find all of the major sports to bet on at Betfred, and much in line with all of the other leading bookmakers you can choose to bet on the Grand National with.

The last time we checked there were more than 25 different sports aside from horse racing inc: football, basketball, baseball, golf, greyhounds, boxing, cricket, rugby, darts, snooker and tennis.

Betfred clearly offer a comprehensive range of sports, but where they really excel is in the depth and range of markets on individual sporting events like the Grand National.

The sheer volume of bet types for each sport is spectacular, but as a racing fan, you’ll be more impressed with what is one of the strongest domestic and International horse racing sections.

The pre-event and live in-play options on horse racing events are fantastic, and combined with the ongoing promotions and horse racing offers, it’s no wonder racing fans love Betfred.
