The great thing about playing on a portal site like BetFred is that it is a one stop shop for just about any kind of online gaming. From sports betting through casino games to bingo, everything is here. There is even a separate site for poker and effectively two casinos: the conventional one and then its “Vegas” sister.

With a total of ten different heading links to choose from, we’ll concentrate on the traditional gaming here. There’s a good Bingo section, with a variety of 90 and 75 ball games for you to play. The Vegas link concentrates on slots, while the Casino has a more comprehensive range of traditional games as well as the five reel titles. Slots are predominantly Playtech titles, providing an excellent selection of superb games. These are supplemented by BetFred’s licencing deal with around a dozen other big name software suppliers, including Microgaming, NextGen, IGT and Thunderkick. This means that you get a wide range of the latest popular favourites to play as well.

On the table game side of things, you get around twenty alternative versions of Blackjack and Roulette to choose from. If that sounds a bit underwhelming, remember that Poker has its own portal, with loads of different varieties and formats all in one place. Then there is yet another link for the Live Casino. Here you will find around a dozen different live dealer games for each of Baccarat, Blackjack and Roulette.

You can play on any of these games using any kind of device. From the most compact smartphone to the widest screened PC or Mac, BetFred’s software will optimise to suit your touch screen or monitor.

The other main advantage of playing at BetFred is that not only do you get an excellent choice of games, you also have the security of knowing that you are playing with one of the biggest names on the high street. This means you can also expect a very flexible banking and payment system. Apple Pay is provided, so you can make your deposits with just a touch or two on your iOS phone or other device. For non-Apple users, there is also Neteller, Paysafecard and of course your usual credit or debit card. The minimum deposit amount is just £5.

You can also withdraw from your BetFred account at any time, starting from as little as a fiver. At some point, you may well be required to upload documents confirming your identity and proving your address. Such documents include images of your passport, driving licence or other photo ID; a recent utility bill with your address; or any other appropriate documentation.
