Betfred was found as a single shop in Ordsall, Salford in 1967. The brand was named after its co-founder Fred Done. Since then, the company has been expanding and today they operate more than 840 betting shops.
In 1998, the bookmaker, became the first bookie to pay out stakes upfront. Punters who had backed Manchester United to win Premier League, got their winnings, earlier.

Seems like a quality bookmaker that can be trusted. Doesn’t suit my visual expectations, but that doesn’t mean they cannot be trusted. Members of IBAS (refer above to see what it is), offering high odds, as well as a good sign up bonus of 50.00£. Lots of exceptions and rules that you must be aware of, like the countries excluded from getting a sign up bonus, the types of deposits excluded from getting a sing up bonus.
Live betting available, but no live streaming, which seems very popular now days among other sportsbook brands. Maximum payout varies from 10,000£ on Australian football games to 500,000£ on most major leagues like the English Premier League. A sportsbook that I would mostly recommend for UK punters, as it’s designed to suit their needs mostly.
