Betfred Bingo Review

Betfred Bingo


The name Betfred first appeared back in 2004 and it’s a name that you will know from the high street. Bingo wasn’t offered until 2006 and over the years has gone from strength to strength. Powered by the Playtech software, there is no reason why you wouldn’t ‘love a bit of Betfred Bingo’.

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.

Similar Sister Sites

Betfred doesn’t have any sister sites. However, some similar bingo websites that operate using the same Virtue Fusion/Playtech software include:

Betfred Bingo TV Ads

Betfred Bingo certainly has advertised on TV and over the years their marketing has taken many different forms.

Their 2009 campaign saw Stuart Hall, the host of It’s A Knockout, crawl out of a laptop to promote the brand. Needless to say that following his conviction in 2013, he no longer promotes Betfred.

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:

Review Summary



Betfred Bingo doesn’t let the brand name down in what it has to offer the discerning player and considering the name is one well-known in the gaming industry, it had high expectations to meet. It’s got a 4.5 from us because of its impressive range of games, responsive software, and the overall gaming experience offered.
