Betfred Casino Download
First established in 1967, Betfred is a UK based betting company. As well as its online casino and more than 1600 betting shops throughout the UK, boosted in 2016 by a few hundred extra shops when Betfred purchased more than 300 shops as a result of the Coral/Ladbrokes merger.
Betfred Casino wasn't always blacklisted at casino-download.com (and across much of the internet) and there was a time when the relationship between Betfred and its reviewers, commentators, affiliates and advertisers wasn't sour and rotten, as it is today. It was never great - Betfred has always had a bad reputation for either not paying what they owe, or paying their debts late. Consistently late in the manner that could put a small business OUT of business in many other industries. If one thing can be said without doubt regarding Betfred and its history, it is that the company is and always has been a mega-slow, unreliable settler of its debts.
Not brilliant but not horrible either... yet
The vast majority of Betfred members won't have been aware of any problems behind the scene - and probably still don't know. Things went from unpleasant and awkward to outright theft, proven lies (we have solid evidence of this), closing of accounts and breach of contracts over a period of time. The fact is - Betfred Casino has stolen from a number of advertisers and affiliates - including ourselves, very shortly after they met us and put on a show of smiles and reassurances about their casino and why we should be recommending them to our visitors.
Sadly, there have been many victims of Betfred's 'generate income at any cost' policy and as a result, it doesn't take long to find lots of stories online about Betfred reneging on contracts and not paying their business debts. More often than not, you will find Betfred Casino lurking shame-faced in the 'blacklisted' section of any decent, honest online casino review website. If they're recommending Betfred, well... they're either 'profit first' or don't know what they're doing.
We are long enough in this industry to be capable of brushing off Betfred's illegal non-payments. Smaller advertisers with tighter cashflow might not be so lucky. Betfred could very easily put people out of a job and they know this. These are not the ethics, morals or personal attitudes of any company that can or should be trusted with your money. It is vital to remember that these appalling acts have not 'just happened' - real people, representing Betfred, made the decisions to steal, cheat and lie. Do not send your money to these crooks.
Note: the same BLACKLISTED status also applies to all of the following brands, as their advertising payment and affiliate/advertiser staff are the same unethical individuals you'll find skulking in a corner at Betfred and should naturally be avoided: Foxy Bingo and Casino, Kerching!, Pots of Luck and Prospect Hall.
Downloading Betfred's Playtech casino
It was a strange experience working with Betfred over the last decade-plus, helping to distribute Betfred's download casino along with their other formats and some brands. As regular casino-download.com visitors will know, we regular point out the benefits of downloading online casinos over playing their browser-based or (even worse) mobile versions. However, in Betfred's case it would be fair to argue that the non-download browser casino was at least as good as the Betfred download casino.
Downloading provided casino members with access to games only from Playtech whereas the browser casino contained more software providers, offering a more varied and interesting mix of games that was more likely to keep you playing longer than the more limited selection contained in the download edition. Still, there are not many Playtech download casinos around and if that is what you were looking for then the Betfred download casino would have been exactly what you were looking for. If only the casino itself wasn't dishonest and untrustworthy - a tiny snag when it comes to depositing your real money (DON'T, by the way).
Last Betfred Casino update prior to blacklisting/non-recommendation
Below is the last update of Betfred Casino before downloading/sign-up/approval was removed. Anything positive comments about Betfred should be IGNORED. It'll be old news and probably irrelevant and is left here only to demonstrate that Betfred once had a reputation not languishing in the gutter.
New players at Betfred get a 100% first deposit-match bonus up to $/€/£100 (high rollers get up to $/€/£500), followed with up to another $/€/£100 bonus over your second/third deposit.
Betfred Casino could be downloaded to your computer or played in your browser without downloading. The download/instant-play games are provided by Playtech with mobile users having access to slots from IGT. Betfred also offer online poker, lotto, live dealers, bingo and virtual sports.
Don't forget - Betfred are arseholes
Alas, Betfred's more than fifty years experience counts for nothing if its online reputation is in the gutter - and it is. This isn't just general news about lack of payments and appalling customer service littered across the internet, of which there is plenty. As mentioned, we have experienced and witnessed broken contracts, non-payments and outright lies from Betfred and their employess first-hand. We are just one in a big, big crowd of people and companies owed money by Betfred. You have been massively warned - Betfred is NOT recommended here. If you came here to download Betfred Casino, we urge you to consider an alternative. If you've already got their software downloaded onto any of your devices/computers, we recommend removing any Betfred-sourced software or apps.
