BetFred Review in 30 Seconds

BetFred’s biggest strengths involve the range of options they offer soccer and rugby betting fans. The range of betting markets for soccer, and the coverage for rugby, are both impressive. Lastly, bonus hunters will be kept happy by BetFred.

BetFred could improve by adding bet builders to their platform, and could work more to provide a live betting platform that is easier to navigate. We go into a bit more detail below:

BetFred Review

BetFred Bonus offer 9/10

BetFred offers new users a 100% up to R5000 deposit bonus, which is among the most generous out there. This betting site is a great option for bonus hunters, as the bonuses and promos don’t stop there.

BetFred Betting Variety 8/10

The betting variety available on BetFred is among the best we’ve seen on betting sites in South Africa. They offer a particularly wide variety for of betting options for soccer, and great coverage for rugby, which is why they get the score that they do.

BetFred Payment Options 8/10

BetFred allows users to process payments through card transactions, as well as instant payment options like Ozow. While players could potentially find more options available elsewhere, BetFred cover the basics well.

BetFred Betting Experience 6/10

BetFred’s betting experience isn’t among the best in South Africa. The website is crowded full of options, and would benefit from a neater, more simplistic interface.

BetFred’s Support 7/10

BetFred offer up telephone and email support, but we weren’t able to locate a live chat function on their site. While this bookmaker covers the customer support basics, adding a manned live chat would increase their score in this category.

BetFred Summary

All in all, BetFred offers a decent sportsbook, that’s best highlighted by all the betting options and promos that are available. The user experience, and lack of features are what hold it back.

We further highlight the things about BetFred that stand out, along with where BetFred could improve.

BetFred compared to other sportsbooks

BetFred offers up a competitive betting platform when compared to what else is out there in South Africa. For one, their offering of soccer betting markets is among the best in the country, and competes well with what is offered on Betway.

The rugby betting coverage is also among the top rugby betting sites. BetFred could however improve it’s live betting offering, by taking some notes from Sportingbet. BetFred could also begin offering a bet builder, and could look to Betway for some inspiration in this regard.
