betfred review
Betfred is the home of flamboyant and popular UK bookmaker Fred Done, who with his brother Pete established Betfred in 1967. are the world`s largest independent bookmakers and the UK`s biggest independent high street retailer with over 600 shops, 5000 employees and a turnover in excess of ?1.5 billion. Betfred are also the official bookmakers and gaming partner for Wembley Stadium and Manchester United

There are many reasons to bet with Betfred, including highly competitive odds, early prices on racing, and great bonuses. In fact, Betfred is knows as the "Bonus King" and with good reason. They come up with some strong bonuses around special events like the big Grade A horse races.

Betfred have taken over sponsorship of the Gold Cup at Sandown in April. This prestigious finale to the National Hunt calendar is Fred?s opportunity to give something back to the sport he loves and one that has been good to him over the years. Betfred offers more daily early-priced horse races than any other bookmaker

You will find odds for pretty much every UK horse race as well as most international race meetings at Betfred. You are also able to view most UK races live and for free via their website.

We also like the fact that they offer some of the best casino and poker software around and its all integrated into your betting account.

This is a highly professional outfit which carries our A+ rating.

Special Promos: Normal free bet of ?25, and up to ?50 free bet for special events like Royal Ascot.
