Betfred’s site design is one that probably won’t be winning many awards for being the best looking or most ingenious, but you get exactly what you want from the bookie, with Betfred offering a pretty all encompassing experience for their users without setting the scene alight design-wise. The initial experience for players sees a standard homepage with all of the available sports and some major competitions displayed on the left of the screen, while many In-Play events are displayed in the middle of the page. Like some other bookmakers, Betfred have a sliding tab of images showing some of their best promotions and odds boosts, meaning the customer is able to quickly and easily find a relevant promotion that they can take advantage of. Of course, it is worth noting that the site’s design itself is a very dated one and could do with an update, however, the main draw of a bookie’s site should be providing a good range of markets and competitive odds, which we feel it succeeds in.
Betfred’s main promotion at the time of writing is their get up to £40 in free bets when you stake £10. In order to make the most out of this promotion simply register for a new account with the bookmaker and deposit with a debit card. Place your first bet of £10 on football at Evens or greater and get up to £40 in free bets within 10 hours of settling your first bet. It’s that simple! The promotion itself is one we really like and feel is another great reason why Betfred are a bookie definitely worth signing up with.
Betfred offer a range of ways to pay into your account as they look to make it as simple as possible to get involved. Of course, the standard debit cards are covered where the minimum deposit is £5, while Neteller, Paypal, Bank Transfers, Skrill and Paysafe are all featured ways of depositing, meaning that most people will have a number of ways to pay into an account.
Betfred are a bookie that seem to focus more on the old style bookie needs rather than on being particularly up-to-date style wise. The site design itself is not one that is groundbreaking, but the markets and odds they offer are very competitive which, at the end of the day for a bookie, is the most important thing. Their promotions are also something we are impressed with and if they are able to tweak their site design and update it then we feel they would only enhance the user experience.
