About Betfred

Betfred is a bookmaker based in the United Kingdom. It has physical locations throughout the country as well as hosts an online casino and other Internet-based gambling services. The brand was established in 1967 and has earned a reputation for treating customer well. In fact, it’s online casino offers a rewards program, numerous bonuses and an average payout percentage about 97 percent.

Betfred Welcome Bonus

Betfred welcomes all new members to its online casino with a bonus on their initial deposits. The default bonus, which is available when no other special option is, is 100 percent up to £100. The minimum deposit at Betfred is £5, so if you were to deposit £5, you’d get a £5 bonus. If, on the other hand, you were to deposit £100 or more, then you’d receive the maximum bonus of £100. Note that this is just the standard Betfred welcome bonus. The casino often ups this initial offer, such as a 300-percent match up to £300. Be sure to check the site for the current offer, but note that whatever the match and maximum bonus is, the rest of the information provided here is accurate.

To take advantage of this welcome offer, you must create or already have a valid, verified Betfred account, and you must make a real money deposit for the first time. The offer is limited to once per household, so if another person at your residence already claimed it, you cannot. This bonus doesn’t require a promo code. Upon making an eligible deposit, a pop-up will prompt you to Accept or Decline the bonus. If you accept the bonus, you’ll receive it as soon as the deposit clears and enters your account. You then have 14 days to meet the wagering requirements, which is 40 times the bonus. Therefore, if you claimed the minimum £5 bonus, you’d have 14 days to play through £200. Failure to do so results in voiding of any remaining bonus and any winnings derived from the overall bonus.

High Roller Option on the First Deposit

The standard welcome bonus requires a £100 deposit to get the maximum £100 bonus. If you deposit more than that, such as £200 or £300, you still only get £100. The exception here is when you’re willing to deposit £1,000 or more. At that point, the Betfred high roller option kicks in, and the casino will match that large deposit by 50 percent up to £500. So, if you deposit £1,000 as new member, you’re actually starting your Betfred career with an impressive £1,500 bankroll. The rollover requirement is still 40 times the bonus or £20,000, and you only have 14 days from accepting the offer to meet that requirement.

Betfred Reload Bonuses

Betfred Casino regularly offers reload bonuses to its established members as both open promotions and as part of the VIP experience. The casino also offers two standard reload options for new members, and these are the bonuses we’ll cover here since they’re always available. The first reload bonus kicks in on your second deposit and matches it by 50 percent up to £50. The second reload bonus kicks in on your third deposit and matches it by 50 percent up to £50 as well. As with the welcome bonus, these offers have a £5 deposit requirement, don’t require a promo code and give you the option to accept or decline. The wagering requirement is 40 times the bonus or £2,000, and you have 14 days from accepting the bonus to meet that requirement.

Comp Points

All members at Betfred Casino earn comp points on each real money wager. By default, you earn points at a rate of one comp point for each £10 wagered. Betfred does not adjust this rate based on the games you play, which is a nice touch, and you can view your current total at any time from your account page. Whenever you have 100 or more comp points, you can convert them into cash at a rate of 100 to £1.

Betfred VIP

The Betfred VIP program, which is sometimes referred to as the Players Club, requires an invitation. The casino does not publish the exact requirements needed to be invited, but it is believed to be based on total comp points accrued. We do know that there’s an introductory Bronze tier as well as four higher tiers: Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. At Bronze, you convert comp points at a 95:1 rate, and that continues to get better at each tier all the way up to 70:1 at Diamond. VIP members also have a reload bonus available each month. At Bronze, that bonus is a 100-percent match up to £100, and that offer gets richer at each tier. Other benefits include surprise cash drops, higher limits at tables, cash-back and weekly reload offers at Gold and above and hospitality packages at Diamond.

Wagering Requirements

How easy it is to meet wagering requirements depends on whether you win or lose. Let’s say you create a new account, deposit £100 and claim a £100 welcome bonus. The wagering requirement is a 40-times bonus rollover in 14 days, but if you play through all £200 and zero out your account, those requirements are voided, and you can make your next deposit with no strings attached. Whenever you’re offered a bonus, you have three days to accept. You’re always free to decline or ignore bonuses. If you do meet the wagering requirements in 14 days and still have money in the account, you can make a withdrawal; however, bonuses at Betfred are not cashable. If in the above example you had £150 remaining, Betfred would first deduct the £100 bonus and then transfer the remaining £50.

Betfred does list countries that can’t participate in bonuses or have increased wagering requirements, so if you’re outside the UK, be sure to check the stipulations for your location. You can never stake more than 20 percent of a bonus amount while a bonus is active with the exception being on doubling. Also, note that not all wagers contribute fully or at all to the wagering requirements. Scratch cards and most slot games contribute 100 percent. Bingo and keno games give only 50 percent. Table games, card games and video pokers contribute 25 percent. Baccarat, blackjack and craps lend only 10 percent. Arcade games and any slots indicated as Alternative Slots contribute only 5 percent. In the case of roulette, the deciding factor is how much coverage a bet has on the board. At less than 20 percent, roulette bets contribute 25 percent. At 20 to 64 percent of coverage, bets contribute 10 percent, and at 65 percent and beyond, wagers contribute nothing at all.

Queueing Bonuses

Many online casinos don’t allow you to accept a new bonus while a current bonus is active. Betfred Casino, on the other hand, does support it. All new bonuses are placed into a queue in the order you claim them. You can view the queue at any time from your account control panel. As soon as the current bonus requirements are met, the new deposit will kick in and be deposited into your account.
