Advantages of Betting with BetFred
Betfred is known for its amazing bonus offerings and promotions, which start right away after you sign up. After you register, make a deposit, and place your first bet, Betfred will match your bet up to £25, and the credited bet can used on their mobile platform, any sports punt, in the lotto, and on virtual sports betting.
Catering to Nigeria sports fans, Bet Fred offers markets in snooker (they actually sponsor the World Snooker Championships every year, so betting on snooker is highly advised), greyhound racing, badminton, European football, handball, American football, pool, MMA, athletics, NBA, bowls, hockey, Australian rules football, cricket, racing, baseball, cycling, Olympic Games, NFL, basketball, horse, boxing, motor sport, speedway, rugby, darts, ice hockey, and golf.
While Betfred is a generally solid bookmaking choice, there are some areas in which they are especially strong. First, they are the official betting partners of the FA Cup and the Tottenham Hotspur and as such, will offer unique deals that other companies cannot match. They offer a wide range of bets on European football with over fifty from which to select, and their odds are especially good on US sports, football, and tennis. Betfred is exceedingly popular with fans of horseracing, largely because of its Lucky 63 bet, which requires one winner out of sixty-three different bets to generate a return at five times the stated odds. The Lucky 15 is similar, except one win pays out at three times the stated odds. Additionally, Betfred offers strong Asian Handicap betting odds.
Betfred also has a well-developed online gaming system powered by Playtech. Generally speaking, Betfred has an all-around great website that is user-friendly, uncluttered, and aesthetically pleasing, but its selection of online games is where it shines. The graphics are stunning, the interface is unique yet still simple to use, and the selection is large enough to keep the most avid video game player occupied for a while. Betfred is an especially good choice for online poker players, as tournaments run constantly and the rooms are well-populated, thanks to the range of games offered and the bonuses offered to players. Their live casino features baccarat, blackjack, roulette, and poker and as for other technological features, Betfred has a great system of live and mobile betting.
Finally, Betfred offers brilliant customer service, available in some form 24/7. They have live chat options, a call center for those who want their customer service old school, and a frequently-checked email address. If dealing with other people is not for you, their site is equipped with an extremely thorough FAQ that can probably handle any of your questions or concerns.
Disadvantages of Betting with BetFred
Of course, all companies have their disadvantages and while Betfred is no different, its flaws are few and either fairly standard or minor. First, their website is very UK-centric. They only accept three forms of currency—the British Pound, the Euro, and the US Dollar, and their market selections are those that are mainly popular in the UK. Residents in Turkey, South Africa, Israel, Germany, China, Sweden, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Serbia, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Belgium, Spain, Poland, Kyrgyzstan, Bulgaria, the USA, Austria, Italy, the Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Canada, Japan, Ukraine, Latvia, Slovakia, Portuguese, and Romania are all barred from playing, but they can at least access the site, unlike at William Hill. They also do not offer live streaming.
While they have a pretty well-respected reputation from online users, there is one detail that makes them a little irksome. Their website says that before withdrawing your money from your account, they might want to see a duplicated copy of your deposit method. This is actually quite common, but what is bothersome is that they do not seem to care if you can prove your identity when you deposit money into an account and subsequently lose all of that money, but the moment you want them to turn loose of it, suddenly they care about identity theft. It seems like a desperate ploy to keep your money, and it is quite unnerving.
