It's time to celebrate Betfred's 50th anniversary!Wednesday, Aug 30, 2017 12:55
When you think of bookmakers in the United Kingdom then the name Befred automatically springs to mind. It has been a staple of the gambling industry ever since it started out as a small betting shop in Salford back in 1967. Fast forward to 2017 and the company is now celebrating 50 years in the business!
Befred was founded by Fred Done and the company has enjoyed great success over the last 50 years. So much so in fact that Befred now has over 1,700 shops all across the United Kingdom and employs over 10,000 staff – thus making it one of the world’s largest independent bookmakers. Befred started out as a solitary Salford-based betting shop, the purchase of which Fred funded right out of his own pocket. He actually was able to buy the shop after using winnings from a bet he placed on England to win the 1966 World Cup. I am sure you will agree, that was a bet that certainly paid off in more ways than one!
Time To Celebrate
For almost 50 years, Befred has been operating with Fred at the helm, and thanks to his leadership, the company has remained at the forefront of the betting industry. The 50th anniversary occurs on September 4th and that is when the balloons will be out and the party celebrations will really begin. Befred are not forgetting the people who made them such a huge success and that is you the punters of course. The company wants customers to join in the festivities as Befred will be offering a whole host of special offers in their stores and online to commemorate this special anniversary.
An Amazing Cash Drop Promotion
Befred has run some fantastic Cash Drop promotions in the past but to celebrate the 50th anniversary, the company has really pushed the boat out with their latest Cash Drop promotion. This promotion began back in April and ends on Saturday 2nd September to tie in nicely with the pending 50th anniversary date. The promotion offers players the chance of winning one of 50 lots of £50!
