Interview with Aaron of BetFred
Aaron runs the ship at BetFred. He gives us a sneak peek behind the scenes as to what makes this online gambling site tick. Thanks Aaron.
Betfred offers a comprehensive gaming experience, with the full range of casino games available online and on mobile, with seamless bonuses and a common wallet between both. We offer some of the most generous bonuses in the industry.
Betfred Casino is licensed in Gibraltar, which is a whitelisted jurisdiction. It’s considered whitelisted by the UK for maintaining UK-standards (which are amongst the most stringest) for fairness, integrity and fairplay. All games are thoroughly tested before launch and payout is monitored every month to ensure that games continue to operate within an accepted range.
New players are eligible for a 100% up to £200 bonus, and high rollers can get 50% up to £1,000 and will be automatically considered for the VIP programme.
There are weekly and monthly rewards for all players, with VIPs getting weekend reloads worth up £1,000, Cashback as well as an array of adhoc promotions for game launches and specials. To qualify for the VIP programme players are invited individually based on time with us and betting history. The earliest levels open up very quickly so players can get more from Betfred sooner.
Playtech power Betfred Casino. This allows us to use personalized game selection and put relevant offers in front of the right players, ensuring that Betfred players never miss an opportunity to get more value and entertainment from their time with us.
Our key games include Roulette and Blackjack, which offer top graphics and a fair experience. Our popular slots include Gladiator Jackpot, Iron Man II, Hulk and other big brand titles from the Marvel range. Our games have a wide range of volatility, so no matter if you like rare big wins or frequent smaller wins, Betfred Casino has a game for you.
Our biggest winner was £5.1 million from the Beach Life jackpot slot machine but commonly have £20-50,000 winners on a range of games, including: Great Blue (£26,000), Sultan’s Gold (£20,000), Jacks or Better video poker (£20,000), Iron Man (£38,000) and European Roulette (£57,000).
We find that debit and credit cards are the most popular, followed by Neteller and Skrill (Moneybookers), but also offer Paypal and bank transfers amongst others. Withdrawals can take 48 hours maximum, but are commonly completed within 24 hours. There is no limit on withdrawals; whatever you win you can take home.
Yes, our £5.1 million winner received the amount in full within days of winning and the same is true of all other large wins too – you get the full amount in one single payment.
Betfred Casino is audited at the end of the financial year by recognized and independent firms, as well as adhering to regulations stipulated by our licensing authority. The payout percentage varies month on month, but currently (May 2013) the overall payout percentage is 96.5% across all games – an amount calculated independently by GLI, one of the world leading testing organisations.
