The sport betting website that also provides bets on horse racing and that is based in South Africa, Betfred is one of the leading ones in our country. This betting house that is managed by Betfred (Pty) Ltd is mostly famous for its offline bets, as well as with its wide range of dozens physical departments spread along the entire territory in our country. Most of these physical departments are located in Western Cape (23 shops in total), but today you are going to get some new info and it’s that this betting house allows you to place bets via internet thanks to its online sport betting platform. This is how you can make a whole bet slips in your own hoe, too, without even bothering to look for the nearest physical department.
In the drop down menu that it is part of the category My Account in this bookmaker you will see a link Register. The registration form that will open for you once you press on this button isn’t, no doubt, the shortest one in the betting industry and it will take a couple of time to fill in all of the nearly 25 lines that include your full personal information, your address, your bank account details and many different ways for communication with you as a customer in this gambling website – including an e-mail address, telephone number and mobile telephone number.
On the e-mail address you have entered in the field E-mail you will be sent some additional information after the registration is complete. This information will help you to access the next step for your betting activity in the gambling platform, which step is the depositing process.
Does Betfred offer any bonuses?
The unpleasant news we’ve got for you is that currently the punters in this betting website are not welcomed or offered with any bonuses. There used to be special promotions back in the early days of this bookie’s existence, but for the last couple of years they have been eliminated.
Betfred Mobile App
Betfred allows you to place bets via mobile devices, but not from a mobile version or a mobile app. When you try to load the website from your smartphone browser, on your screen you will see the website version for computers. Unfortunately, the gambling operator has no specially tailored platforms for mobile betting activity and using the desktop version via a mobile device has never been the most convenient thing in the world especially if the smartphone isn’t one of those models with truly big screens.
Transactions in Betfred
The punters in Betfred can deposit money only via a bank transfer and the bank account they use is the only place they can get their money in after requiring a withdrawal.
You should be aware that the bookie will send the money from the withdrawal only to the bookie’s account owner and it is not possible to claim a withdrawal to be sent to a third party. The betting company does everything possible to perform the withdrawal transactions as fast as possible and executes withdrawal request twice per day (during working days) – the first one is at nearly 11:30 o’clock, while the second one – at 16:00.
What can you place a bet on in Betfred?
Betfred isn’t a place where you can play different gambling games such as casino, bingo, virtual sports or poker – this betting operator has focused on sport betting and mostly on bets on horse racing and football.
The company has stated its affinity to horse racing and it is really good in it as Betfred adds more than a satisfying number of events from this game in the daily program. However, at the expense of this the bookie does not offer any other bet types except for bets for the winner and the final position in the chart for a horse.
To be honest, though, we are more impressed by the football bets this betting operator provides to the audience. Obviously Betfred buys odds for football matches from the big international gambling companies. This is how the bookie becomes able to offer hundreds of football championships in the program. Yet, in the football section we must say that there is no such a big variety of markets, either. Even for the matches that are basically the top interesting ones for the audience – such as the events from the Championship league, for instance – the bookmaker includes only nearly a dozen of different markets.
However, the lack of many markets is compensated with the very high odds Betfred offer. These odds do not leave behind only the competitors from South Africa, but even reach the level of odds in the biggest betting operators in the world – especially when it comes to football matches of a high rang.
Alongside with the horse racing and football, the established back in 2006 year bookmaker from South Africa also offers bets on 8 other sport disciplines among which we find the American soccer, baseball, basketball (with a main accent on the big American leagues in these sport types), as well as cricket, golf, moto sports, rugby and tennis.
Plus – here in Betfred different interesting bets on the drawing of numbers from many popular lotteries – lotto from all over the world are accepted.
