Betfred operate an excellent sportsbook, easily prove their throne as the bonus king, and are a site that are marketed very well, and will be one of the biggest online sportsbooks within a year.
2006 Promotions: £100 bonus on first bet. Super bonuses.
Betfred Sportsbook Navigation/Layout: BetFred is an extremely easy to navigate site. The layout is simple but effectively organized. All the sports available to bet on are arranged in a table to the left that expands when you roll the mouse for more information. There’s even a pull-down tab for different ways to display odds, including the traditional American +/- way so we don’t have to deal with those namby-pamby fractions. Right at the top, next to a picture of what must be the “Fred,” part of BetFred, there is a clear ad for their £100 bonus, so be sure you don’t miss that when you deposit!

Betfred Sportsbook Features: There aren’t many special features at BetFred like buying half points or reduced juice, but there are more bets than you can shake a stick at, and occasionally they have special bonuses on certain races/sports. And if you’re not in the mood to bet sports, try playing Poker or perusing the casino. Betfred Sportsbook features review
Betfred Sportsbook Bet Variety: There are a huge amount of sports to bet, and an even larger amount of interesting bets to make. There are of course the traditional bets of the spread, the over/under, and moneylines for sports like football and baseball. Races offer standard win/place/show bets, and exacta/quinella/trifecta etc. Parlays are available as well. The terminology for some of the bets is a bit different, but under the help tab there’s a Bet Type page that explains everything clearly. Betfred Sportsbook bet variety review
Betfred Sportsbook Bet Selection: If you get tired of betting on the usual American sports, BetFred would be a great place to expand your sports wagering. If you’re dying to put some money on who will be the top batsman for a cricket match, or if you feel like betting on Ronnie O’Sullivan to win the 2006 Snooker Championship outright at +275 is a good idea, then BetFred is the place to be. It seems like most UK sportsbooks offer a significant amount of events to bet on beyond the normal fare, and BetFred is no exception. Some unusual sports offered are soccer, darts, rugby, cricket, greyhound races, cycling, and even rowing! If you can’t find a bet that interests you, there’s always the casino, poker room, arcade, or the lotto to peruse as well. Betfred Sportsbook bet selection review
Betfred Sportsbook Bonus: BetFred offers a 100% match on your first bet up to £100, but it’s only available for your first bet, and of course you only get paid if you win. There are a few terms and conditions that apply, and what is probably the toughest one to make this work to your advantage is the fact that the bonus only applies on events where there are 3 or more possible outcomes. This means you can’t just bet a surefire spread and get an extra £100, you have to bet on something like a race, where your odds may not be as good. However, known as the “bonus king”, Betfred will offer an excellent range of bonuses and promotions throughout the year. Betfred Sportsbook bonus review
Betfred Sportsbook Support: Betfred has a variety of ways to contact them, including toll-free phone numbers that, e-mail, and snail-mail. What’s really lacking however is live support, which is available at so many other websites. The help tab has a lot of pages regarding all sorts of questions you may have, including one regarding bet types (very important if you’re a Yank!) and one dealing with technical issues. Their e-mail support are very responsive and knowledgeable. Betfred Sportsbook support
