One of the UK’s largest bookmakers, Betfred has a reputation for being extremely good at providing a quality service to their customers. Plus they offer fair odds on a really wide range of events.

Founded in 1967, Betfred was started in a single shop in Ordsall, Salford. That was before they grew into the betting juggernaut we see today. They have the unenviable record of being the first bookmaker to pay out early.

Unfortunately for Fred, in March of 1998 he incorrectly predicted that Manchester United would stroll to the title. Arsenal took the honours that year. This feat was repeated in May 2012 when he paid out early on bets for Manchester United to win. However their arch rivals, Manchester City, took the crown.

Their main strengths actually lie in their size. As a result this allows them to offer a brilliant ‘in play’ betting options. That lets you see completely live odds during events like the Grand National and you can bet accordingly. Rather than being stuck with the odds that were quoted before the event started. Definitely one of the strongest features on the market right now.

On top of that, keeping with his moniker of being the ‘Bonus King’, Betfred constantly has some form of bonus offer or deal available to customers. Whether you earn just for signing up, or a seasonal boost for major tournaments (like the European Championships), it’s hard to feel unwanted when there are so many benefits to being a member.

One thing I would say about Betfred, is that it’s a very slick affair. Plus the website and mobile betting is simple enough to let any newcomer jump straight into the action.
