Betfred has been a presence on our high streets since 1967 when their 1st shop was opened in Manchester.
The company has grown with Betfred online now accounting for a huge part of their business.
Available for Android or IOS the app downloading was straightforward.
Betfred promotes their app and mobile pages with the tagline "The fun is at your fingertips" and like Paddy Power position themselves towards the recreational punter.
Betfred Games, Betfred Casino, Betfred Live Casino, Betfred Virtual, Betfred Lotto, Betfred Bingo cover most bettors needs, and we found the app as the tagline says fun to use.
The Betfred app includes all the regular features you associate them with including some long-running promotions
We can't remember when double delight and hat-trick heaven were launched, but those Betfred football promotions seem to have been around since olbg was launched (2003).
As promos go they are still worth noting each weekend.
By the way, take a look at the Betfred promotions page, it was one of the best layouts of all the bookmakers we reviewed, very simple to access, and easy to understand.
Their goals galore offer is another long-term feature, and along with hat-trick heaven, and double delight are the three mainstay promotions of Betfred.
Live streaming is available on the Betfred app, with a bet of just £1 required to watch a horse or greyhound racing event on the app.
If your Betfred acca is doing well then the cash out facility can be utilised.
In conclusion, novice bettors will not be overwhelmed by the Betfred App.
It looks like it has been designed for shop customers who are now online betting, and those dipping their toe for the 1st time into online betting, maybe via a reality show (X Factor, Big Brother) or a major event (FA Cup Final, Grand National).
For regular bettors, the Betfred app advantages are the promotions and freebies.
The Betfred bet request facility is called #PickYourPunt where they say "Ever fancied backing a price that you can’t see listed on our markets? It’s time for you to take matters into your own hands, with #PickYourPunt."
Just tweet them from the app and their traders will get you a price.
The Betfred App is not going to blow your socks off.
It could definitely do with more stats and insightful betting information, however if you want a basic app, and promotions for multiple selections the Betfred App fits the betting bill, remembering the fun is at your fingertips!

All punters like free bets and if you do not already have an account with this bookie then they are worth following on Twitter as they frequently offer a free £10 bet just for signing up! They then match your first wager with a free bet after you deposit. They are currently doing free bet offers on live football games, it's worth checking out the sports promotions page before kick off.
The self proclaimed Bonus King isn't everyone's cup of tea but there is no doubt that on occasions you can win much more at Betfred than you would do with another bookie for the same bet. If you bet on horse racing or greyhound multiples or even football scorecasts then you should check this lot.
Use this site mainly for goals galore coupon. Site is very easy to use and staff are freindly and patient. Quick payouts and easy withdrawls. Don't use them too much for any other bets as find the prices are better elsewhere.
Not bad overall and they have some decent offers such as treble odds for just one winner on 'Lucky' bets (15, 31, 63), although excluding 'best odds guaranteed' on such bets for UK & Irish horse racing seems petty to me. Odds are strictly average, but maximum bet limits are decent. Have never had any major issues with payments and their standard of customer service is generally above average. Their website can be very slow and isn't the easiest to navigate.
Occasionally I turn to Betfred. Their promotions are strong, tend to provide good offers from time to time. The horse racing section isn't as detailed as others and the in-play is slower and less user friendly than others. Use them for the good offers but otherwise there are better alternatives.
