Betfred Casino Review
This guy Fred is not as cool as, for instance, Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit (we are pretty sure that this Fred is not quite as good at singing and jumping down from the stage), but he still seems to be a pretty nice person to meet, doesn’t he? So, what is behind his probably blue eyes? A nice selection of games is definitely there - over 600 titles from Microgaming, Playtech, and some other providers.
What else? You get only 50 spins as a welcome bonus, but there are no wagering requirements on the winnings, which is cool. But keep in mind that Betfred Casino doesn’t have a perfect reputation among other portals - they are known to sometimes violate technical standards of its licenses, and they use the questionable Spielo G2 Software. So, do you still want to get to know this Fred?
- License from the UK;
- More than ten years of experience;
- Round the clock live chat;
- Full mobile functionality;
- Hosts live games.
- Not the best reputation among other watchdog portals;
- A long list of restricted countries.
Betfred Casino opened its virtual doors in 2005. Nowadays, it’s regulated under the laws of the UK and secured with the latest SSL encryption technology.
Their name is unique; we’ll give ‘em that. Betfred Casino goes way back to the 1960’s where they started as a brick and mortar establishment. Since then they’ve just grown and grown, and have literally everything you’d expect from a top-class online casino. The only bad news is that the casino has a really long list of restricted countries including the US, Germany, Spain, and France.
The site doesn’t look very attractive, though it has an easily navigable interface. Everything is cluttered right on the main page - you can relink to many pages from here.
Customer Support: The customer support team is nice. They have no fewer than ten email addresses and five telephone numbers. On the top of that, you can use their live chat which is available round the clock.
Banking: The selection of withdrawal options is not very wide. You will have Visa, Bank Wire, Maestro, PayPal, Skrill and Neteller at your disposal. It takes the casino 48 hours to process your withdrawal request. The coolest thing is that there is no monthly withdrawal limit.
Software and Game Variety
Without much of a surprise, a big name like Betfred Casino populates the large majority of its games by Playtech. You’ll find some games from IGT, Ash Gaming, and Microgaming there as well - just don’t forget to check all the casino’s subsections (Casino, Games, Vegas, etc.) In total there are more than 600 games. We tried to be more precise, but we lost the count, sorry. Anyway, here are some of the games you can play there:
- Slots: Emoticoins, Thundercats, Vikings of Fortune, Golden Jungle;
- Jackpots: Winstar, White Knight, Wolf Run Mega Jackpots;
- Table Games: Blackjack, Roulette, Hi-Lo, Ultimate Poker Triple Play;
- Video Poker: Jacks or Better, Aces and Faces, Joker Poker;
- Sports Betting.
“Their library is full of awesome games from famous providers.”
Mobile and Live Gaming
Fully mobile, folks! Any mobile device is suitable for playing the whole big selection of games. Kind of expected that, really
As far as live games go, you’ll be able to choose from Live Baccarat, Blackjack, Roulette, and Texas Hold’em.
Bonuses and Promotions
While other casinos offer deposit bonuses, Betfred Casino offers only… spins. Yes, exactly, only spins. This is how it works: you deposit at least £10 (into Casino), then stake £10 on slot games across at least five rounds, and get 50 free spins! The spins can be used only on certain games, and this list is pretty short. But we still have a nice piece of news - there are no wagering requirements on the winnings from the spins.
“As a newcomer, you can get only spins, but there are no wagering requirements on the winnings!”
There is also some extra promotions which you can try in case you play this casino regularly. The casino also offers the standard Playtech’s comp point program system.
