Betfred review

Betfred was founded by Fred Done back in 1967, starting out as a single betting shop in Ordsall, Salford. The Betfred head office is based in Birchwood, Warrington and also has offices in Media City, Salford Quays, Salford. The company “” is based in Gibraltar and is registered as Petfre (Gibraltar) Limited.

In 1966 Fred Done bet on England to win the 1966 world cup. With his winnings he financed the 1st Done Bookmakers betting shop opening in 1967. From there they started to build their chain and in 1997 acquired the Robert Walker chain of bookmakers which increased their chain to 100 betting shops. Just 3 years later the number of Betfred betting shops had doubled to 200 and in 2002 the Done brothers opened their 1st bookmakers in London. In 2004 the name changed from Done Bookmakers to Betfred and was born.

The digital platform was an instant success offering Sports betting, an online Casino, online Poker, Bingo, Lotto and Virtual Sports. The chain continued to grow and by 2005 they owned over 500 betting shops. In 2013 the company created Betfred TV, a TV channel that would broadcast in all of its shops and the 1st Bookmaker to do so.

They are a company that created many 1st’s, another being the 1st to pay out early before a bet was settled. This happened in the 1998 Premier League Football season where Fred being a huge Manchester United fan paid out early on Man Utd to win the league in March only for Arsenal to go on and win the league by 1 point. This set a trend with Done betting Victor Chandler £1million that Manchester United would finish higher than Chelsea in the league. United finished 3rd 18 points behind Chelsea. And again in the 2011/12 season Betfred paid out early on United to win the league only for Manchester City to win on goal difference.

As part of the merger between Ladbrokes and Coral in 2016 they had to close or sell a portion of their shops for the merger to be allowed to go ahead. Betfred stepped up and bought 322 of these shops which was a big contributing factor in the growth of the company bring their total of shops to over 1650 by 2017 including shops on 51 Horse Racing courses around the UK, including Newmarket, Epsom and Cheltenham.

This is a great place to place your bets on any of their products. They offer players the chance to bet on Sports, Casino, Poker, Bingo, Lotto and more. With an easy to use layout navigation is never a problem on any of your chosen platforms.


Bet at or play any games no matter where you are. They have an app for everything whether your using ios or the app for android. Free bets can also be claimed through the app but I would sign up 1st. Once registered you can download as many of the apps as you want. Then simply log in and your good to go. I use the app for Samsung (android) and its so easy to use and navigate I rarely bet anywhere else. It is generally easier to claim the Betfred sign up offer before downloading the apps.

Horse Racing offers

Extra place races

This Bookie pays out on extra places on select races, so instead of 3 places they’ll pay out on 4 and instead of a traditional 4 places Betfred will pay out on 5 places for selected races. During the Cheltenham Festival 2020 on the 1st day they paid out 4 places on 3 races ( the 13.30, 15.30 and 17.30) all of which should of been just 3 places and they paid out 5 places in the 14.50 and 16.50.

Non runner no bet

Bet on ante post on the big races and there’s a good chance Betfred will be offering a NRNB (non runner no bet). For the 2022 Grand National They offered this and bets placed from mid February qualified for the non runner no bet offer. What does this mean to you? Simply if you bet on a race in advance of the day and the horse turns out to be a non runner you’ll get your money back.

Some horses will have multiple entries at any given meeting with no intention of running in more than one race depending on which race offers more favourable conditions or has less competition. It’s just an extra layer of security for your bet.
