Yes, there are wagering requirements on both parts of the bonus offered by this site but they vary for bingo and slots.
Bingo Bonus – For the bingo bonus, you are required to wager 2x the bonus amount before any winnings generated by the bonus are made available to withdraw. For the slots part of the bonus, the wagering required is 20x the bonus. Any winnings on the slots bonus will not be available to withdraw until all wagering requirements have been met
Slots Bonus – It is worth noting that the slots bonus is only available for use on specific slot titles. A comprehensive list of which games can be found on the dedicated welcome bonus page at Betfred. The titles are subject to change and it is for this reason, we have not listed them here.

Betfred Bingo TV Ads
Betfred Bingo certainly has advertised on TV and over the years their marketing has taken many different forms.
What was unusual about that commercial was that it was the lady who left the house for a night out whilst the man stayed in and played bingo!
A 70’s game show was the storyboard for another commercial and it featured Fred Done, one of the founders of Betfred. It’s probably one of the better adverts for this brand, but not the most recent:
