Betfred Sportsbook Review
Like most of the betting sites in the UK, Betfred started out as a betting shop. It was started by brothers Peter and Fred Done in Salford in 1967. To set up Betfred they used a hefty successful wager placed on England’s 1966 Word Cup Victory and insight from their father’s bookmarking efforts. They were able to come up with a reputable business where they emphasized on customer service.
Later in the 80’s Fred came up with Lucky 15 which was a betting shop as well that allowed bettors to place small bets on several fixtures that would allow them to accumulate their wins. They were able to give bonuses on a daily basis which made them the bonus king making them better than their competitors. Thanks to the bonuses, Betfred grew fast and by the late 1990’s they have great presence with about 100 shops and in a decade there were as many as 500 shops. One of these shops created the first betting shop millionaire in 2004.
Their growth has been a huge success and this made it possible for them to buy Totesport for £265 million and this made the company one of the country’s largest high street bookmarker and largest racing sponsor where they sponsored 700 races every year between 2011 and 2018. This purchase was Betfred’s way of showing their commitment to growing the Racing industry by increasing their investment and commercialization with the focus on social and charitable responsibilities. This purchase is, without doubt, making Betfred a dominant player in the bookmaker industry where they have had word class partnerships with Manchester United, Wembley Stadium. They have also had exclusive deals with the World Snooker Championships and Cheltenham Gold Cup.
