A true veteran brand, Betfred created many of the options that bettors love and use today.


Betfred is a company born from success, quite literally. The bookmaker was created in 1967 using money the famous ‘Fred’ had gained having backed England to win the 1966 World Cup.

In the years that followed, Betfred became known as one of the market-leaders in terms of sports betting - creating such options as the Lucky 15 and, in later years, Double Delight, and Hat-trick Heaven. You can see these options at most sportsbook operators nowadays, however, Betfred is keen to point out that it’s within its walls where all those bets were created.

You may also know the Betfred name from many of the company’s sponsorship ventures. It has lent its name to horse racing events, rugby league competitions, and the World Snooker Championship. Betfred also sponsored Bolton Wanderers Football Club in the past.
