Overview

First Impression

Betfred was an outstanding casino that I would have even referred my closest friends to, but they are seriously out of touch with the player community. It’s difficult to be able to put trust into a casino that is primarily concerned with the bottom line.

They have been in business for years – and are the fourth largest bookmaker in the UK – and can offer just about any type of game that any punter could want: Casino Games, Sports, Horse Racing, Live Games, Bingo, Lotto, Poker, Mobile Games, and it goes on. Even so, there are better outfits that can offer just about the same games and platforms – Bet365 for example.

The customer support is on the ball and their payments are prompt.

Past Issues

In 2013, they were awarded a “Faceplant” award for uploading a help file in 2012 for a “Reel Deal” and “HiLo Gambler” game which stated that the game had a 100% RTP, when in fact it was programmed for 96%. To conclude this matter – all players who were affected were paid out. You can read about this here.

Verdict

Casinomeister Rating

Bryan's Verdict

BetFred was listed in the Accredited section from September 2007 until April 2015. They are a fairly good casino with only a sporadic amount of complaints. They have had their share of headaches with some bad managerial calls, but all in all a good casino. They had a rating of 8.7 points when they were removed. They were removed from the site because they showed no interest on monitoring our forum and engaging with its membership: a requirement for Accredited Casinos.

They also feel that they have no need for Casinomeister or any of the services that we offer. Which is a shame really. It just goes to show how out of touch they are with the realm of the player – it’s all about player acquisition, nothing else.
