Betfred USA Sports - What to expect of Betfred in the US


Popular on the UK high street as well as online in the UK and Spain, Betfred is a reputable and prominent name for sports bettors in two established European online betting markets. But how will it replicate that success in the US?

Experience of the betting industry spanning over 50 years will certainly help, Betfred is a similar beast to William Hill in terms of longevity. With that comes huge knowledge of what works for bettors and Betfred seems to have this down to a tee.

Betfred’s interface is classic and straightforward while a well-organized menu makes finding what you want extremely simple. Promotions and support are within easy reach, as are trending markets and top leagues.

And as for Betfred’s payment options, bettors can expect a very good range including VISA/Mastercard, PayNearMe, PLAY+. PayPal isn’t an option offered at Betfred Sports but another digital wallet, Skrill, has recently been added to the sportsbook for the Iowa market.

A practical and effective betting app and a $500 first deposit match bonus make this a sportsbook likely to become a favorite for sports betting beginners.
