Betfred was established in 1967 by Mancunian brothers Fred and Peter Done when they opened their first ‘Done Bookmakers’ shop in Salford aged just 26 and 21 respectively. By 1997 they had expanded to 100 shops and they now have a retail estate of over 1300 shops (making it the UK’s fourth largest betting chain) as well as being the official betting partner of the new Wembley National Stadium since 2006 – operating betting booths for all England and FA matches, including the FA Cup Final.
More about Betfred
Fred named one of his racehorses The Bonus King – the nickname used in his betting shops and website to describe him and his policy of offering extra payouts on multiple bets. Betfred are also an innovative bookmaker, as demonstrated by the introduction of the highly popular ‘Goals Galore’ coupon in August 2009, where punters have to choose five games where they think both teams will score.
As a result, the totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup, feature race at the prestigious Cheltenham Festival, was renamed The Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup and Fred said that sponsoring the race was “one of the proudest moments of my career.”
The change, which marked Betfred’s first sponsorship at Cheltenham, followed the renaming of three of the Tote’s flagship Flat races: the Ebor, Cambridgeshire and Cesarewitch.
Other race sponsorships include every race on Aintree’s Betfred Old Roan Chase Day in October, with the feature race the Grade 2 Betfred Monet’s Garden Old Roan Chase and including others such as the Betfred Goals Galore Handicap Hurdle, the Betfred 1350 Shops Nationwide Novice’s Handicap Hurdle and the Betfred The Bonus King Handicap Chase.
They also sponsor Nottingham, Sheffield and Kinsley dog tracks and two prestigious events at Nottingham, the Betfred Select Stakes and the Betfred Eclipse.
Betfred Bonus & Website
Betfred.com was recently re-launched and has a stylish new look complemented by a strong colour scheme. Visitors to the homepage are immediately met by crystal clear graphics displayed in large carousel banners detailing the latest offers and promotions from Betfred’s range of online products.
Exploring further, players will discover the option to personalise the layout of the various games and promotions on offer, with the ability to toggle between grid and carousel views, adding a personal touch and saving all-important playing time. This is just one of several key changes made to the overall layout and navigational structure of the website to improve usability, with product-specific promotions pages and a new step-by-step lottery betting process. With the re-branding of the Cheltenham Gold Cup as the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup, they also added a betfredcheltenhamgoldcup micro-site with information, schedules and news leading up to their showpiece sponsored event.
A particularly nice feature of the website is their ‘Football Predictor’ which shows a pie chart for each game with the probability of results and scores based on statistical analysis. It also lists relevant stats and data for each team to help you in deciding which bets to place.
In 2013, they also launched a ‘Premier League Centre’, combining stats, previews of every game and breaking news, including info on injuries, head to heads and more.
There is also a very slick ‘Interactive Racecard’ section, which has all the daily racecards with a predictor for each race, along with a wealth of information on each racecourse, statistics, results, ‘steamers’ (what’s being backed) and ‘travellers’ (which horses are making a long journey for a specific race).
For those looking for a gambling fix between real events, there’s a ‘virtual’ tab in the site top menu offering 24/7 virtual horse-racing, greyhounds, motor-racing, speedway and football.
If you ever need help, the site also offers live chat functionality so that you can chat online to a Betfred representative without having to call or email.
