Like many other huge bookmakers, BetFred also features an online sportsbook. But does the online operation measure up to BetFred’s impressive land-based success story?

BetFred Sports Betting Bonus
The BetFred bonus calls on you to deposit and wager at least £10 to receive £30 in free bets. This isn’t the largest bonus in the online sports betting world, but it’s a good start when trying out a new sports betting website.
Aside from the free bet bonus, BetFred offers a number of other promotions on a consistent basis. Some of the promos that we see at the time of this writing include 1 free bet when you make 3 Wolverhampton (horse racing) wagers, super bonuses for wagering on specific horses, refunds on 5+ accumulator bets, and payouts for meeting certain cricket stipulations. This is just a sample of the many promos offered at BetFred, and we came away impressed with their selection.
BetFred has opted for a simple blue design with white and dark blue bars at the top. We think that the design is too simplistic, but it at least prevents any distractions or obstructions. One major issue we have with the design is how many broken images there are on the PC/Mac version. We checked back on two different days, and the images were still broken. Hopefully this is just a temporary issue, but it looks unprofessional for what’s an otherwise reputable brand.
This sportsbook offers lines for all the major sports like American football, baseball, basketball, football and hockey. But based on their “Quick Links” section, it definitely looks like BetFred puts the most emphasis on European and Australian favorites. Quick Links features Australian rules football, cricket, football, tennis and Grand Prix racing.
Deposit Methods & Customer Service
You can deposit at BetFred using Visa, Maestro, MasterCard, Electron, PayPal, Moneybookers, Neteller and PaySafeCard. As for reaching customer support, you can use email, live chat or telephone to talk with BetFred reps.
Betfred Sports Betting Conclusion
Despite the success of their brick-and-mortar shops, we don’t think that BetFred’s online sportsbook is a total hit. The broken images and small bonus certainly detract from this site. We also don’t know if the design will be enough to hold your attention over flashier sportsbooks. On the bright side, BetFred does offer a good sports selection coupled with nice bonus opportunities.
