As a well-renowned, well-established brand in the sports betting market, the Betfred casino offering is just as you would expect, substantial. They offer a vast range of casino games from the biggest studios around, covering everything from slots and bingo to poker and roulette.

The site has a nice coordinated colour scheme that reflects the famous Betfred blue. This changes slightly as you navigate between the different categories with the casino giving off a cool futuristic neon aesthetic. Betfred itself is professional, modern and easy to navigate across both mobile and desktop.

Signing up was super simple and only required the basic information necessary such as username, email, mobile etc. Most players should not need to provide KYC either, so long as the signup information provided corroborates with your available records.

Overall, Betfred does well to compete with its other tier-1 rivals. However, this is not without its downfalls which I expand on in this review.

Casino tester's comment: Dylan Rozario

The welcome bonus itself is pretty impressive in that for £10 you will receive 100 free spins. There are no wagering requirements attached either, so everything you win, you keep. However, I do believe an additional 100% deposit bonus (with wagering) would certainly ramp up the appeal of this promotion as the spin value is pretty small at £0.01.

Personally, I found the free spins redemption process a little unclear, specifically from the perspective of someone who may be new to betting. To clear up any confusion, if you would like to redeem the welcome offer firstly, transfer £10 of your balance to chips via 'My Account'. Then, use these chips to stake £10 on slots in the ‘Casino’ over a minimum of 5 game rounds. Consequently, 100 free spins will be credited in two 50 spin bundles. My experience of this wasn’t particularly smooth as I only received 50 free spins and needed to contact customer service in order to reinstate the other 50.

As previously stated, each line on any of the dedicated slots which the free spins are awarded carry a value of £0.01. Additionally, the spins play out using all available paylines. My advice here is to play the games with the most paylines and highest RTP when using your second bundle of free spins. Of the games that I was offered, this is what I’d recommend to play:

  • Age of the Gods - God of Storms
  • Frankie Dettori’ - Magic Seven
  • Age of the Gods - King of Olympus
  • Halloween Fortune
  • Age of the Gods

With the first round of 50 spins, I won £6.80 and the following 50 an extra £2.10, bringing my grand total winnings to £8.80. I had not done my research on the slots beforehand so maybe I would have won more if I played the games above. On the plus side, as Betfred’s welcome bonus free spins have no wagering requirement so I got to keep it all!

Betfred runs a range of other casino promotions daily/weekly and you may also get offered bonuses based on individual gameplay. So there are plenty of other options for players to receive extra loyalty bonuses whilst playing at Betfred. In terms of wagering requirements, these too are dependent on the specific bonus given to the player and will vary.

As expected from an operator of its size, Betfred has a fantastic range of casino games for players to choose from. These games are spread across the different categories of games, casino, lotto, live casino, vegas, bingo and poker.

What I like about the functionality of the Betfair casino is that your balance can be used across all the different categories. However, you are required to transfer your balance to chips if you want to play casino, live casino and poker. Consequently, I was able to try games that I wouldn’t necessarily opt for such as lotto and bingo. Wheel of Fortune (lotto) and Rainbow Riches (bingo) were fun and even won me an extra £7.30! I really like that you don't need to stake much on these games but still get the same thrill when you win.

The casino and live casino are well categorised and also come with a handy search feature that quickens the process. You definitely won't struggle to find a game to suit your needs here. The casino comes with a good range of fun slots in addition to all the major live casino games such as blackjack, baccarat and roulette. My only gripe is that all the games available here are Playtech. Although Playtech produces fantastic content, it would be nice to have other top-tier live suppliers such as Evolution Gaming.

The games section at Betfred fulfils all your arcade-style gambling needs with a huge selection of slots and RNG table games to choose from. Here is where you’ll find titles such as Gonzo’s Quest and Starburst, plus many other games from some of the most popular studios around. Similarly, the Vegas category caters to all players who want the glitz and glamour of casino slots - I really enjoyed the old school style of Mega Money Multiplier.

I’m not an amazing poker player but I thoroughly enjoyed having a go at Betfred’s Hold’em. The functionality is good and I didn't experience any compatibility/technical issues. There are multiple poker variations and a particularly wide buy-in range for players of all sizes. You can use your chips from the casino here too which makes things a little smoother which is nice.

In my opinion, Betfred should have stuck with a one-stop-shop app instead of breaking away from their main app (which houses the sportsbook) to create a casino specific one. Frankly, this just creates confusion and ultimately a less enjoyable experience.

The Betfred app is a well condensed, more organised version of the desktop. The navigation bar along the top allows for quick access to the different betting categories on offer, from the sportsbook to poker. The app is responsive and for the most part, worked pretty well. I had one issue trying to open up the roulette lobby where the app froze and required closing and reopening.

The Betfred casino app has a very different format to the standard app. The navigation bar has been removed and is replaced with a search bar at the top and filter tab at the bottom. In-between these are two columns with clear game tiles for you to scroll through the entire casino offering. What I don’t like about this is all the games on this app are only the ones you find in the casino category. Consequently, if you’d like to play vegas, lotto, bingo, or poker you can’t and will have to either go to the mobile browser or use the main app.

In my opinion the mobile browser is the best option when it comes to using Betfred away from the computer. The design is exactly the same as the standard app and has all the same benefits of UX/UI and responsiveness.

If you would rather download an app so that you can quickly access Betfred (say you are also a sports bettor), then I would suggest getting the standard app. That way you’ll have the benefits of better UX/UI and functionality, plus access to ALL available casino games and sports.

The Live Casino section that Betfred offers is a real plus point. The Betfred Lounge offers classic Roulette, French Roulette, Blackjack One and Blackjack Two.

Safe gambling – is Betfred casino safe?

As a player, you are valued and our greatest asset. Gambling is meant to be seen as pure entertainment. Gambling can also be addictive and can make you lose perspective of time and money.

Alternatively, you can avail yourself of filtering software that prevents children from accessing gambling websites. Filtering solutions such as Net Nanny and GamBan provide such services.

It's a mixed report regarding customer support (CS) at Betfred. On the plus side, it was super easy to locate the help and T&Cs pages situated on the left-side navigation column. There is a lot of helpful information here and is definitely worth checking out before contacting CS.

The primary communication channels for support are live chat, email and telephone. I initially messaged live chat with a query regarding how to transfer chips and waited a shocking 26 minutes for a reply. The CS agent wasn’t particularly helpful or polite either. He didn’t explain anything or even direct me to an FAQ page that could help. I did follow up with another query via live chat and received a response within 5 minutes, so maybe the prior experience was just a one-off.

Interestingly, email was my preferred method of communion with Betfred. I received a reply within 10 minutes and was satisfied with the response and detail that was given. I wouldn’t recommend calling up unless you enjoy sitting on hold for a while.

KYC & Documents

To comply with our obligations as a licensed operator, we would need to carry out relevant checks to prove your age and identity.

To do so, we would require you to send in the following documents:

Casino tester's comment: Dylan Rozario

I love the fact you are not required to upload KYC. This is because Betfred is able to immediately verify age and address using the information provided when you open the account. This made the withdrawal process super smooth and meant I did not have to worry about finding/scanning documentation for proof. However, Betfred state in their T&Cs that documentation will be requested if an error occurs in the initial verification stage.

Should it be required, you will receive an option to “submit my documents” in the “my account” section of the site. Here you’ll be asked to submit one document as proof of address and another (utility bill, bank statement etc), separate document, as proof of identity (ID card, drivers licence etc).

Banking

We accept a range of fast payment methods. We only work with the most trustworthy payment providers available.

Casino tester's comment: Dylan Rozario

After signup, I was immediately directed to the deposit section in ‘My Account’. The process took 2 minutes to simply select the payment method (I went with credit/debit) and enter the card details. In terms of payment methods, there are seven to choose from that cover most major providers.

The withdrawal process was pretty smooth too. Within three clicks I was entering the withdrawal amount and after 10 ½ hours, it was approved. It did take a further 22 hours for the funds to show up in my account but that is within the proposed 48 hours.
