Why Use Betfred?

Betfred is one of the oldest UK based bookmakers, dating back to its insertion in the gambling industry in 1967. Since then the company has grown by leaps and bounds and whilst brick and mortar betting outlets were their primary focus however, the 21st century has seen them expand and develop into becoming one of the most popular online bookmakers, not only in the UK but around the globe.

One of the outstanding reasons for their continued achievement is their desire to invent something new to an otherwise stagnant business. They were the first firm to pay for early payouts on the betting market, allowing Manchester United to win the league in 1998, but only to be cut off by Arsenal – and the introduction of new betting markets such as Goals Galore Double Delight and Hat Trick Heaven.

Another Betfred invention , which has was copied by other bookmakers. In this case, your first goalscorer winning bet will get paid out at double odds if the player scores again during normal time. As for the hat trick portion, in case your player is able to score three goals during the game, you’ll earn triple odds.

Goals Abound: the Original BTTS Market

One aspect that Betfred excel at is to innovation. And , as we’ve already mentioned that they’re constantly coming out with fresh offers, often developing new concepts and adopting a fresh approach to traditional ideas. Or to put it another way, they’re not scared to try something different.

It’s not only offers that they are experimenting with. Betfred has been known to invent entirely new markets. Their Goals Galore coupon was the source of the increasingly popular both teams to score market (BTTS for short). Whilst BTTS is now available by pretty much every bookie throughout the UK (including Betfred), Betfred provide their Original Goals Galore Coupon which is actually an fixed-odds BTTS credit.

Here’s how it works This is how it works: the Goals Galore coupon is made consisting of several upcoming matches. The goal is to choose the games where you believe each team will have at minimum one goal. The pay-outs are set based on the number of selections you have made.

3 correct 3 correct
4 correct 11/2
5 correct 5 correct
6 correct – 16/1
7 correct – 28/1
8 correct 8 correct
9 correct – 70/1
10 correct 10 correct
1 correct, 200/1
12-correct – 300/1
13 correct 500/1
14 correct – 800/1
15 correct – 1350/1

There is also a second coupon, ‘Goals Galore Bonus’, which gives better odds on a smaller amount of games. This pays out as follows:

3 correct 3 correct
4 correct – 9/1
5 correct 5 correct

You could, of course make the same bet using the standard BTTS markets, and include ‘both teams are unlikely to score’ bets, something that isn’t allowed by the Goals Galore coupon doesn’t currently allow. However, you can sometimes have better odds using the coupon versus a straight accumulator, depending on the games.

Totepool Betting

Betfred purchased The Tote in 2011, and has worked tirelessly to revitalize the brand. As you would imagine, Tote products are readily accessible and beautifully presented on this site.

If your unfamiliar with how it all works, The Tote is basically a pool bet on horse racing, where you are paid out a share of the pool in the event that you are successful. The amount you win is contingent on the amount placed in the pool and how many winners there were in the specific outcome.

The old favorites are offered, including Placepots, Jackpots, Scoop 6, Quadpots, Swingers and Trifectas. You can also bet with The Tote on horses to place and win as well being able to bet on betting on the Exacta which is The Tote version of forecasts.

Although these bets have been popular for many years, they’re presented in a fresh modern, bold, and contemporary way by way of the Totepool Live Info page. It provides up-to-date information on pool sizes, dividends and what money is available on each bet.

It is possible to bet on the Tote at a variety of locations but it’s the best way to go here. There are arguments for and against Tote betting, but it’s definitely a different way to do it so well worth investigating. Bets like Scoop 6 and the Jackpot Jackpot as well as the Scoop 6 still give you the chance to win massive wins by placing small bets.


We’ve briefly discussed Goals Galore and Double Delight but it’s exactly these sorts of market concepts that have made Betfred so popular among punters. Their simplicity works very well and in this day’s environment are fast becoming the new accumulator bet for football punters.

In the past few years, Betfred have worked very hard on their mobile betting app in addition. When we first began looking at it back in 2009 the app was a gritty excuse for an app especially with the ones that we used to see in the marketplace. However, now the app is a sleek and shiny betting application with pretty much every amenity on there that would find on the site itself. It’s obvious that they have poured a lot of money and resources into the development of the next generation betting platform and that’s mobile betting.

Betting in-play with Betfred is straightforward and easy to use with a broad selection of markets and sports to pick from. It’s easy to filter by your favorite sport by having the most recent in-play games shown on the upper right hand side of the screen , and that day’s schedule continuing underneath. Cash out is available when the symbol is displayed. There are numerous basketball, tennis, and football games, as well as other streaming live throughout the day. Again, these are identified, and there’s a view live in the in-play section, if available. Radio commentary is also available on horse racing, football, cricket and greyhounds.

Alongside these sports, the entire UK and Irish horse racing can be streamed live when you place the £1 bet of more than $1, reasonably reasonable, we’d suggest, and crucial for racing punters who want to know how their money is being made and lost.
