The bulk of the company's revenues are concentrated in the field of sports betting for UK clients, but in 2004 a poker and casino section appeared, which attracted gamblers. The company officially operates in the UK, there are 1000+ land-based betting points and employs about 2 thousand people. It is logical that the office focuses on English-speaking users, there are much fewer opportunities for clients from the CIS.
Betfred is one of the UK's most active sports sponsors, presenting a wide range of sports and tournaments in the distinctive red and blue color scheme. Since 2005, Betfred has sponsored the country's popular horse races, until 2015 the prestigious National Hunt.
In 2017, the office signed a three-year sponsorship contract with the Superleague rugby league, which includes 11 British teams and 1 French, and since 1998 the main final has been held at Old Trafford.
Among British bookmakers, she sponsored the 2009-2012 World Snooker Championship. In 2015, it was announced that the prize pool had been increased to £ 425,000.
In June 2017, the company was confirmed as the new official sponsor of the Bolton Wanderers jerseys with an agreement that will initially run for two years.
But the main achievement in football is the Scottish League Cup, which is called the Betfred cup. Earlier bookmakers did not become sponsors of the whole tournament, so the Europa League may soon find a new sponsor, the Champions League and other tournaments that are actively sponsored by large corporations.
The bookmaker office is operated from Gibraltar and has a betting and gambling license there, so the office is blocked in Russia, Azerbaijan and other CIS countries, you can only enter it using VPN programs. Betfred does not have to look for a mirror, unlike other casinos, because the site is only accessible by this url, you only need a VPN with a British IP to enter
In the UK, the Gambling Commission monitors the activities of bookmakers. This means that the operator must comply with all rules and regulations. Gamblers outside the UK who are clients of the office are licensed by Gibraltar and supervised by a local commission.
The bookmaker section of the bookmaker offers 25+ sports, including the insanely popular snooker in England and Ireland. The casino section features more than 200 online slots, live games: poker, baccarat, lotteries and 20 more card games for real cash. The office allows you to play in major British tournaments with professional players.

To play slots or gamble on sports, you need to find a friend with British citizenship or find another office with bets and gambling
The bookmaker is knowingly asking for personal data in the registration form. There is a possibility that a long-time and recently opened user account will be asked to transfer documents or photos for identity verification - the level of security in the office is extremely high.
How is the verification of the Player in the letter asked to provide any of the available identification documents:
But that's not all. Betfred has the right to request information about the funds from which bets are made in the casino and the betting section of the site.Admins must make sure that the user has sufficient funds to play comfortably, and they can request:
The line features over 25 sports ranging from horse racing, football and tennis to cycling, politics and snooker, with a total payout rate of 93%.

In the horse racing section, tippers see over 150 competitions from several countries such as the UK, Ireland, USA and Australia. Players can pre-wager major tournaments, as well as special bets such as “winning the race” and “playing favorites”. In tennis, the odds are very competitive and the payout is 95%.
With the PickYourPunt feature, which works as a bet builder, players can combine markets for the same event in a single bet sheet. Using the PickYourPunt hashtag on Twitter, you can request odds for a selection that is not shown in the line. Access to Live Streaming is possible on the races, provided that the player has wagered at least £ 1 on the races. The company also offers video feeds for other sports such as football, tennis and table tennis, but for a limited number of matches and leagues.
