Betfred £30 free bet

Betfred is a name you're already likely to be familiar with from the British high-street, but unlike some if largest peers, e.g. Ladbrokes and William Hill, it remains in private hands. While many associate others, like Paddy Power, with unusual antics, it was actually Betfred who were the first bookmaker to pay out ahead of confirmed results and live to regret the decision. In March 1998 it paid out in advance to betters who had bet that Manchester United would win the title. Manchester United collapse, and instead Arsenal came from behind to win by a point (oh, how Arsenal fans remember those years...). We say "regret", but we'r sure it provided a pretty sizeable marketing benefit!
