Betfred was established as an online casino back in 2005, so they have over 10 years of experience servicing their customers. Owned by Petfre Ltd, the company is one of the largest online casinos in the industry. They have members from all across the world, but certain countries are restricted, including the United States. The casino has developed over the years into one of the leading names in the industry. And I’m curious to find out more about them, so let’s take a look under the hood.
Bonuses and Promotions at Betfred
I feel a casino should be judged highly on what promotions and bonuses they offer players. What really stands out for me with Betfred, and I’ve seen a few other casinos in Ireland do this recently, is that their bonus offer has no wagering requirements when you win. So, you’ll be given 50 free spins when you make your first deposit of €10. Whatever you win from those spins is YOURS. You can withdraw it there and then if you like, you don’t have to play it through. I’m loving this new ‘fair free spins’ vibe (BGO have it too) and think it make way more sense than getting free money you then have to spend more to withdraw. There is also a Comp Points system, where you earn as you play, and points mean prizes. I also found that there are loads of promotions in other areas as well, like their epic sports section, Poker, and Bingo. These are well worth checking out and offer a more complete package.
Remember, as with all of the bonuses and promotions listed on this site they are correct at the time of publishing and come with their own terms and conditions. We are not responsible if the bonuses or promotions change
There are a huge number of games on offer here, and some of them are games I’ve never tried out before. They have specific categories, and the DC Slots one was a personal favourite of mine. They also have every spin off of Age of the Gods, one of the most popular slots ever. But, there are also plenty of great table games to choose from as well, and, with around 240 stellar games to pick from, I can tell I’m never going to be bored with this casino.
As well as slots, there are plenty of wonderful jackpot slots, Video Poker games, and scratchcards to pick from. And, that’s before I even get to the sports, in play, Totepool, Bingo, lotto, virtual sports, and Poker to choose from too! I am really impressed with the gaming options offered by Betfred, and no matter what your preference or gambling persuasion, you will have no issue finding something here that appeals to you.
Betfred is powered by Playtech software, some of the best on the market. This ensures that the games available are of the highest possible quality. I love playing on Playtech games because they always look great, and the gameplay is excellent. But, this isn’t the only software used by Betfred, they also use Ash Gaming, IGT, Boss Media, and Blueprint Gaming. This is a name you can rely on, and one that is linked with some of the leading names in the industry.
Winnings & Payouts
Betfred, as you might expect, offers plenty of ways to win and scoop some big prizes. Just a few of the jackpot games they offer include games like Funky Fruits, Jackpot Giant, and Geisha Story. There are tens of thousands available to win, and even hundreds of thousands with some games. Jackpot Giant offers a potential jackpot of over £6 million as well! There are plenty of other winning opportunities as well, so I’m definitely looking forward to playing more and shaping my own destiny.
Banking methods are important, and Betfred again impresses in this aspect. There are a variety of different withdrawal and deposit methods available for you as a player. I used Visa to deposit instantaneously, but you also have the option of things like Ukash, PayPal, or Bank Transfer. There are no withdrawal limits, and you’re looking at around 2-5 days for a transaction to go through on credit/debit card, which is a little long. Of course, it can take shorter or longer depending on what you’re planning to use, and all the methods are very secure.
Betfred Customer Service
The customer service at Betfred has two separate parts to it. The first is the Help button at the top of the screen that takes the player to a glossary. This is really detailed and involved, and gives you the perfect opportunity to familiarise yourself with betting terminology and access the FAQs. The casino has several phone numbers, email contacts, and snail mail facilities too. In the bottom left corner, there is also a Live Help button which takes you to Live Chat for different parts of the company, like Poker, Sports, Casino, etc. This chat option is really fast and easy to use, and the operators are polite, knowledgeable and helpful.
Betfred Mobile Casino
Betfred continues to impress me, and another feather in their cap is a sprawling and impressive mobile setup. They offer the opportunity to enjoy an immersive mobile casino experience. But, you can also enjoy the mobile sportsbook, mobile bingo, and a Goals Galore app too. They have an attractive and under-friendly mobile app, which is the best way of experiencing this scaled down version of the casino.
I am officially in love with Betfred’s website – there, I said it! It has that perfect balance of nothing and everything all at the same time. The blue is the perfect colour to use for the backdrop of the site, and I love that they have plenty of blank space too. The site looks smart and professional, but it never overdoes it on any account. This is a perfect example of how a casino can, and should, do a website properly. I found the site interesting and engaging, and it made me want to dig deeper.
The home screen is set against a changing background displaying different graphics, games, and symbols. The company logo sits alone against this backdrop, with the ‘Log In’ button on the other side. Under these we have a taskbar with different tabs along it – these give you a great way of navigating the site comfortably and efficiently. Under this bar are the tiled games displayed in all their glory against the smart blue backdrop. We have blue space down either side of the screen, and some quick links at the bottom. It works on every level and is a stellar start for the casino.
Betfred is one of the best casinos I’ve ever signed up to, and one of the finest I’ve reviewed so far. Almost every aspect of this casino is excellent, and they have improved so much since I last visited. The only negative I could find was the slightly high payout times, but, aside from that, I can’t fault it.
