Appearance and Navigation
At first glance, Betfred certainly has a unique look with vibrant colours throughout their site. However, the font can sometimes be too small especially the fonts of the games and events. It is an easy fix, but not too much of an issue as all games/events are organised well, using sub-headings of the league and country.
Down the left-hand side, you can see quick links and all the sports on offer. Also, while navigating the site, all the necessary information is on one convenient page. Whether you are browsing the different sports, live or upcoming matches, you will find it all on the sports page. In fact, the left-hand side quick links and sports list will stay visible throughout your searches making it painless to browse other matches/sports.
Betfred has over 25 different sports to choose from, including all the most popular sports and a few niches. The list isn’t as diverse as some other sites, but it’s more than enough for the average punter. To name a few, Football, Horse Racing, American Football, Tennis, E-sports and Volleyball. There are also some non-sporting markets such as Politics and Lottery Specials.
With attention to the sports market, it is noticeable that Betfred doesn’t have the same depth in their betting markets as some other sites. Even more so in the in-play markets.
On the other hand, Betfred’s range of betting types are more than enough for most, in fact, they have a unique and awesome feature available for punters called “Pick Your Punt”. You can tweet Betfred’s twitter account with your own creative bet type on many select events. An awesome feature allowing punters to get creative with their betting types, for some pretty decent odds too.
Live Betting and Streaming
For live betting, you have a separate page within the tab “In-Play Betting”. Here you can see all live matches filtered by sport and competition to great effect. It’s nice and easy to navigate allowing for fast selection, which is crucial for live betting. Where the font can be slightly small on the main page, the In-Play section fills up more of the screen making it that much clearer to see.
If you want to see all the games for the day, you can choose between three different options. Events that are live or in the next 15 minutes, in the next three hours or all events for the day. To cycle through these options, you can find the tab at the top right of the In-Play page.
It can be said that the range of betting types is also smaller than most for their live betting too. It would be great to see more options in all sports both live and pre-game. Also, Betfred seems to have no info-graphic or stats for their live games at the time of reviewing. It feels a lot less stimulating without any live stats and the typical pitch map. However, I did notice Betfred offers a live streaming service for some games, which of course would make up for the lack of info-graphic. However, it just feels like strange that a simple feature like that is left out.
Betfred has an outstanding customer service, with several different methods of communication. You can go straight to live chat in the bottom left-hand corner or click the “Help” tab in the top right-hand corner of their page.
- FAQ’s with the top ten listed and a search bar to help with your specific issue
- Phone number- Inside the UK: 0800 028 7747
- Live Chat- Available 24/7 to resolve any of your issues throughout your time with Betfred
In conclusion, Betfred may have a lesser range of sports and betting types than some other competitors, but it’s certainly more than enough for most. They stand ahead of everyone with their huge list of promotions and unique offers. Also, a logical design for easy navigation and exemplary customer service creates a service that will certainly not disappoint. In brief, Betfred is a great service that will reward your loyalty throughout and is definitely worthy of your time.
