Betfred Casino was established in 2005 and forms part of the larger Betfred group that originally began as a high street betting shop opened by brothers Peter and Fred Bone in 1967. Now with over 1350 shops and ownership of the Tote among other things, the company has 8,500 employees in the UK and abroad. The online side of the business is based in Gibraltar, where strict local gambling licence regulations require casino games to be independently audited for fairness, while only companies with the best track records for financial security are granted permission to operate out of the territory.
The site homepage highlights the sign up bonus offers, with the latest and most popular games detailed below. It's quite a busy looking page, but all of the relevant information is easy to access with quick links to the current promotions and registration page.
When players sign up to Betfred Casino, they are able to claim a new player welcome bonus, which can change in detail occasionally, but will usually give the customer bonus credits at least equal to the cash deposit value, plus a small no deposit bonus. If a first deposit is of £1000 or more, then the player can claim a High Roller bonus, which can be significantly higher in value than the regular one. The terms and conditions that need to met before cashing out are a little strict in that players must wager the combined value of the bonus and cash deposit 20x within 14 days, or lose any remaining bonus amount. Also, in common with most online casino bonuses, the actual bonus amount is in the form of credits, which cannot actually be cashed out on their own.
Once anyone becomes a regular here, they can still claim a good range of bonuses including re-deposit offers on particular days of the week, cashback, a Players Club and Comp Points. These points are earned every time a bet is placed and are accumulated at the rate of 1 point per £10 staked, or 2 points when £10 is staked on slots games, and can be converted to cash at different rates depending on the Players Club level reached. New customers start at the bronze level of the club, earning £1 for every 100 points, while at the top, diamond level members get £1 for every 70 points. Additional benefits of the club include reload bonuses which increase in size at each level, surprise bonuses and offers, higher table limits and invitations to exclusive events.
Casino games are from the Playtech range, which is widely regarded as the highest quality selection of titles available anywhere, particularly the slots. A downside of this is that many of the most popular online casinos use the same supplier, so anyone who has visited a number of sites will recognise the games. However, it should be noted that Betfred also have a Games section to their site and once an account has been opened, the same username can be used to play the Games division. Here, players will find 100s of titles from different suppliers, mostly Microgaming.
At the main casino site, there are around 200 games including:
Many of the most in demand games can be found in several versions, such as Roulette, which comes in European, American, 3D, Mini, and live varieties, or Blackjack, which can be played in Classic, 5 Hand, Progressive, 21 Dual and Perfect styles. Other games include Red Dog, Craps, Sic Bo, Stravaganza, Scratchcards, video poker and lots of Arcade games. It's the slots that make Playtech really stand out, with several £1,000,000-plus jackpots, a wide range of themes from ancient civilisations to outer space, and by far the biggest selection of movie and TV based games. These include the hugely popular Marvel Superheroes range, featuring Iron Man, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men and more, all of which have images and clips from the films, some varied bonus rounds and a four level progressive jackpot prize. Rocky, Gladiator, the Pink Panther, Little Britain, The Sopranos, the Six Million Dollar Man, Marilyn Monroe, and King Kong all have slots based on them.
Betfred accept only a limited range of deposit options, although most people will find one to suit them. As well as major credit and debit cards, they accept the most widely used money transfer and prepaid voucher systems and payment can also be made in cash at Betfred shops. There are low minimum payment thresholds, usually £5, accounts will be instantly credited and no fees are charged. Withdrawal requests get processed within 48 hours and again, there is a very low minimum of £5 and high maximums of between £4000 and no limit, depending on the method used. If possible, payments will be sent back to the card or money transfer system used when depositing funds or by cheque. When requesting the first withdrawal, proof of ID may be required.
Betfred Casino is one of the better places to play a wide selection of quality games, with some generous bonuses available for both new and returning players. While the choice of Playtech as the main supplier means that the range is nothing new, they are still providing customers with some excellent titles, and the one account system means that the Games section gives players access to a huge range overall. Bonuses tend to be slightly better than average and quite varied, and it's nice to see that regular players still get treated to frequent promotional offers, although the 14 day limit of bonus playthrough is quite short.
