Betfred Lotto - Everything You Need for a Quick and Easy Lotto Fix
A lot of gambling websites claim to be ‘one-stop shops’ these days. Indeed, it’s now all too common for sites to market themselves as veritable online emporiums where punters are bombarded with so many gambling choices (casino, sportsbook, poker, live casino, etc) that there’s no reason for them to even think about going elsewhere. Sadly, it can often be the case that the quality of these offerings fails to match the quantity.
Fortunately, Betfred manages to deliver on both these counts, and even throws a top-draw (I thank you!) lottery platform into the mix, just for good measure. Here’s a rundown of what it offers.
Considering the wealth of betting options it offers, Betfred’s online platform is refreshingly simplistic. Yes, there are a million-and-one bells and whistles lurking behind the tabs and links, but the neat, unfussy design of the site never makes you feel at all overwhelmed. As well as offering punters the chance to place fixed-odds bets on a wide variety of lotto games from all over the world, Betfred also offers a wealth of casino and sportsbook options, and boasts more than 100 slots from well-known developers like NetEnt, Play'n GO, Playson, Quickspin and Yggdrasil. This means that there’s always something on hand to keep you entertained (a cheeky Age of the Gods session perhaps?) while you’re waiting for your numbers to come in.
It’s fair to say Betfred offers more lotto-focused bonuses than most other sites at the moment. The welcome bonus is a sweet little teaser of ‘Bet £5 and Get £10 in Free Bets’. This is pretty much exactly what you think it is – just open an account, place your first £5 bet on Betfred Lotto and you’ll receive £10 in free bets.
Elsewhere there’s the ‘Champions League Enhanced Treble’, which is essentially a big price boost when you bet on the 49’s, as well as the ‘Bonus Ball Bonanza’, where punters can bet on the Irish Lotto bonus ball for a chance to win £1 million. Other promos worth mentioning include various ‘Lotto Specials’ and the cool ‘Lotto Missed by One’, where Betfred will match your stake value as a free bet if you only match three out of four, or four out of five numbers.
Deposits and Withdrawals
You'd think an operator that’s as established and highly regarded as Betfred would offer an array of payment methods. For some reason though, this isn’t the case. Sure, you’ll find most of the usual suspects on hand but some of the less popular deposit options are conspicuous by their absence. However, the ability to pay in at UK betting shops is a bonus, and minimum thresholds are low. Here’s a full list of Betfred’s current payment options:
Although there are no transaction fees on deposits or withdrawals made via e-wallets and cards, bank deposits tend to be free only once a month.
Betfred Lotto on Your Mobile
Betfred appreciates that many more punters want to gamble on-the-go these days, so it’s no surprise the platform’s highly responsive design makes it a doddle to use via your mobile browser. In addition, Betfred also offers dedicated apps for iOS and Android users that can be downloaded from iTunes or the Google Play store. It has to be said that nothing typifies modern gambling more than watching your winning lotto numbers pop up on your Apple Watch.
With its intuitive interface and seamless, uncluttered design, Betfred is certainly a conducive platform to get a quick and easy lotto fix on. The variety of lotto games and array of betting options impresses too, as do the high-quality sportsbook, casino and slots offerings. The only real chinks in Betfred’s armour lay with its modest selection of payment methods (very modest compared to the likes of BetVictor), and with its somewhat sketchy reputation for customer service. However, even these potential drawbacks cannot take away from the fact that Betfred’s lotto platform is, on the whole, pretty much everything you’d want it to be.
