Which countries are legal and illegal at Betfred?

Legal or Illegal?Betfred state clearly in their terms and conditions which nations they do not accept customers from, and these will be provided in full a little later.

When it comes to nations not on that list, however, Betfred are unequivocal in stating that it is each individual punter who has the responsibility to ensure that they are not falling foul of the law;

for all other jurisdictions, it is the individual’s responsibility to ensure that any activity with us does not breach the laws relating to betting of the country or state where the individual is based.

To help you on the way toward making that determination of betting legality, the following is a list of major countries which do not appear on Betfred’s list of illegal nations:

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Bulgaria
  • Canada
  • China
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Israel
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Kyrgyzstan
  • Latvia
  • Montenegro
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Serbia
  • Singapore
  • Slovakia
  • South Africa
  • Spain
  • Thailand
  • Turkey
  • Ukraine
  • United Arab Emirates
  • USA

*This list of illegal countries can change according to different legislation and changes in policy from Betfred themselves. It would always pay, therefore, to check on Betfred’s terms and conditions individually before beginning to use their site.

Betfred: Currencies Accepted

Being legally available in any given country is one thing, but a bookmaker’s site is far more accessible to any potential punter if it allows for the use of their chosen currency. Many online gambling providers offer a range of different currency options, and those provided for by Betfred are as follows:

  • Australian Dollars (AUD)
  • Canadian Dollars (CAD)
  • Danish Kroner (DKK)
  • Euros (EUR)
  • Hong Kong Dollars (HKD)
  • Icelandic Kroner (ISK)
  • Japanese Yen (JPY)
  • Malaysian Ringgits (MYR)
  • New Zealand Dollars (NZD)
  • Norwegian Kroner (NOK)
  • South African Rand (ZAR)
  • Swedish Krona (SEK)
  • Thai Baht (THB)
  • UK Pounds (GBP)
  • United States Dollars (USD)

Betfred are, then, amongst the best bookmakers around when it comes to the breadth of currency options they provide for (to see deposit options accepted visit our Betfred review). If your country is not on Betfred’s list of illegal nations and your currency is accepted, therefore, Betfred may be a good choice for you but there is still one further factor to take into account.

Bonus Restrictions

Every bookmaker provides bonuses and promotions to their customers and almost all of them limit the number of territories in which those offers are available. Betfred are unfortunately no different and in fact limit or alter the Betfred free bet deal based on where you live – and potentially other promotions as well.

How to check what bonus you can get? If you live in a country from which Betfred do accept customers then the only way to work out what bonus you can claim is to visit the Betfred website.

From here you’ll see the bonus advertised on the homepage, or you’ll need to click the ‘Promotions’ tab (or whatever the correct translation is) to find out exactly what’s on offer for you.
