Why choose Betfred?
The bookie has a fantastic reputation in the betting world, especially when it come to horse racing.

Way back in the olden days, like 2017, before Google Play allowed real money gambling apps, you needed to download an APK if you wanted to get a betting app on your phone. Well, now that Google allow betting apps, you don’t need to do this. All the Betfred APK was is a file type used on Android as an app. You used to have to download it separately, away from the app store but not anymore. Just go to www.betfred.com join up and follow the steps to download the Android version of the app.
As well as offering a downloadable app, bettors can also use the mobile site offered by the bookies. You can use this on any device – iPhone, Windows mobile, Blackberry, Samsung, HTC, you name, it will work. If you only bet every now and then, it may not be necessary for you to download an app and let it take up space on your phone. If that’s the case, just use the mobile site instead. Alternatively, if like us, you have a wager every day, then an app is by far the fastest and easiest way to bet.
How does the platform compare to competition?
This bookie has been around for a long time and knows what it needs to do to please punters. They offer a really wide choice of sports compared to a lot of other bookies and generally have more markets than most, especially on the football. Pricing and odds are normally very good too. They offer quick payouts and withdrawals with a good range of banking options. If you compare the app to other bookies set ups, you will be pleasantly surprised.
What do you get on the app?
Once the app has downloaded, you can easily register for your account if you need to, then log in with your new account details, browse the countless markets, see the in-play odds and then quickly place your bets! This bookie has always been one of our favourites to use over the years and we find them particularly good for football and racing.
So, Why should you use the app for Android from Betfred? Well…….apart from offering really decent sports betting, the app also supports games, casino, live casino, roulette, bingo and a whole lot more! So it saves you having multiple apps on your phone eating in to your valuable memory! Betfred are a reliable, household name in betting and they been around since 2004. There has always been a chance to place a bet with Betfred when you’re out and about but they have now moved online with their great Android app available.

It’s had a needed, recent update over the last few weeks and is now faster and better than ever before. Access Racing Post information directly from the mobile app and get the latest info and stats on all your favourite horses. We love this new addition as we can get all the info we need, for free! A brand new, redesigned bet slip is also now available which in our eyes was much needed as we weren’t a fan of the old style.
As a new customer to Betfred and their app, you should be able to claim some fantastic bonuses like free bets, casino plays and more. What we really like about the app is just how easy it is to get navigate and get around it. We haven’t found it to lag or freeze any time using WiFi, 3G was a bit slow but I think that is due to the signal in the area. Betfred have finally added live streaming to their services, customers can tune in and watch Football, Tennis, Basketball and many more sports on Betfred’s Watch Live service. There’s also Greyhound racing from RPGTV tracks, and Horse Racing from around the globe.
Did you know, Fred and Peter Done who own Betfred, started with as a single shop in Ordsall, Salford all the way back in 1967.
The Betfred mobile app also lets you access their new and improved Virtual area. In here you can bet on a whole range of virtual sports and it is an area that is getting increasingly popular with punters. Tennis and Cycling are the newest sport additions, but you can also find Horse Racing, Greyhounds, Football, Motor Racing and Speedway.
Betfred has a strong focus on football and sports betting and they have some great bonuses for the football punter. If you are a goals galore fan you will be delighted to know that they have a specified section for this option on the Android version of the app. Football is not the only option to bet on they, also carry a wide range of obscure sports and in-play bets. However for some of the less popular matches their selection for bets can at times be minuscule which I can put up with as I never stay too far from the big markets and games. There is a huge choice of events and sports for you to bet on from the app including football, boxing, tennis, rugby, cycling and loads loads more. Most of their competitors have had a cash out feature for a while and Betfred have literally just added one! With Cash Out, you will no longer have to wait for your bet to finish to pocket a profit. You can simply choose the bet you want to Cash Out and get paid the current value, regardless of the outcome of the event. All you need to do is simply look for the unique symbol throughout the site and on the dedicated Cash Out page to check if your bet is eligible for Cash Out. If it is, hit the button and take your winnings!
Top tips on the app – The racing post information is great for horse racing and football info to help you try and place better bets. It is well worth having a read before you choose who to back. Double Delight & Hat trick heaven are a firm favourite of ours and a must for football betting fans.
In terms of aesthetics, this mobile app hits all the right notes. It’s a fabulous looking app and has been very well designed and laid out. It gives you access to a full portfolio from Betfred, not just sports betting. The app supports a main menu to the left which opens to reveal a search feature, popular sports & full A-Z and then access to Betfreds special features – CashOut, Watch Live, Games, Casino, Vegas, Virtual, Goals Galore, Totepool and promotions. We are particularly fond of the promotions, they extend all across Betfred and include Double Delight & Hat-trick Heaven , Who dares Wins, Football Acca insurance, Cash out & BOG for Horse racing and #PickYourPunt. This is Betfreds brand new market request bet feature. Just tweet to @Betfred tell them what you want and they will give you the odds for it. You can literally request anything! On top of all this, new players who join Betfred will now benefit from the top industry price across a host of win markets. Betfred want to give players the best value from their bets, and you will now find that they have a better price than other operators on singles and accumulators on many selections. Not bad hey!
The app does have a full range of deposit methods available and the minimum deposit required is only £5. This is a bonus for Betfred as a lot of competitors require a minimum of £10. All in all, Betfred have made a quality app and I am confident you will like it. Don’t forget to join www.betfred.com to get your customer account log in details.
Adding your bets to the Betslip and placing a bet on the app
If you need an easy to use app to get your wagers on, then Betfred could have the app for you. Please note, you need to have an account, with funds before you can place any bets so make sure you have a funded account. If not, join and then add funds in your account. From there, it is as simple as going to the home page to select your markets. This can be done using the slider on the top, menu on the left or the featured sports on the home page. Let’s say you want to bet on the in-play football, click the In-Play tab, and scroll to the game you want to bet on. There are draw win draw markets available straight away, but you can click on each game and see more markets. Choose what you want to back and an option box opens. Here you can set how much you want to bet and see the return, if you are happy click place bet, or you can add to your betslip if you wish to add more. This is exactly the same method for accumulators, add them all to your betslip and then click the multiple options button. Again, you can see all the options on the multiple and set your stake and see your return. Once bets are settled, go to your account to see the results.
What could be improved?
Overall, we are very impressed with the app. One area that we do feel needs work on is the growing virtual market. The games can get a bit predictable and we would like to see this improved. Placing an acca can be a tad time consuming and sometimes the app froze if looking at a big market.
“JohnnyBillions” – A really decent, complete betting app with more features than you can shake a stick at.
