Betfred might not be the brand everyone thinks of when it comes to iGaming, but as far as bookies go, it’s a trusted and seasoned name. Of course, due to that fact, some people find that they want a Betfred experience but without the sportsbook included, which is why we’ve compiled this list of sister sites for you. These are handy for when you want a change of pace to your regular gaming habits, and/or if you want to explore when else is out there beyond the safety of the blue and red of Betfred.
It might not sound like a casino but rather like a university campus, but Prospect Hall is a hidden gem of the iGaming community. Decorated in bright imagery on top of a dark, spaceage backdrop, it looks intriguing and exciting, which isn’t bad going for a brand that’s been going since 2015.
Beyond the moody interface of the homepage, users will find a small but consistent trove of promotions, starting with the welcome deal. This offer is open to newbies only, and comes in the form of three part deposit bonus, split into two 100% deposit bonuses, and a lower 50% one (note that the 50% deal comes in between the two 100% ones). All three of the offers come with a series of free games, all of which are subject to the same low x10 wagering requirement of the other promotions. Sadly, players who bank with Skrill will be excluded from this offer. Nevertheless, thanks to the long list of games, and the elite VIP club, users shouldn’t be sad for too long. And should you need assistance, you can call on the team via live chat and emails.
Released later in 2018, Jackpot Jones is yet another understated, often overlooked iGaming hub, and yet it boasts a good catalogue of developers and services. Arguably, the main issue with this brand is that it looks extremely dated, especially for such a modern site; think pre-broadband graphics.
If you need to speak to a member of the team at any time, you can contact them through email, live chat, and telephone, with the latter options being limited to the operational hours of 8am until midnight. Of course, given the simplicity (some might even say basic design) of the site, you shouldn’t run into too many troubles that require assistance. As for what goodies you can get as a member, they come in the form of loyalty points and regular bonuses, as well as the three way deposit deal consisting solely of free spins, with each set of spins being allotted to a different pokie. The innovation of it being spins only and not bonus money is quite refreshing, as is the wagering requirement of between x1 and x10 (depending on the amount of cash you initially deposit). To get the ball rolling, make an allocation of £10 or over.
Much like Betfred, Ladbrokes is a name associated with sports first and foremost. However, while it’s a reliable sportsbook, its casino isn’t all that bad either. True, the site is a little garish in its bright red design, but if nothing else, that ensures you know that you’re in for the authentic Ladbrokes experience!
If you’ve never played with the brand before, you might be curious as to what you can expect from this well known bookies. For starters, there’s a considerable casino bonus, worth up to £50, when you deposit and play with £10 for the first time. This might not sound like much, but for a casino and sportsbook combined, this is a good, solid deal. Nonetheless, there’s a lot of games excluded from this offer, so make sure to read the fine print of the terms. As for rollover requirements, they stay quite low with a x40 rollover. If in doubt, the team is available through email and telephone, although the operational hours aren’t clearly stated. Overall, for a 2000 established website, it functions quite well.
Pots of Luck
A name like Pots of Luck doesn’t leave much to the imagination — we know straight off the bat that this is an Irish themed brand, which is only further reinforced by the leprechaun logo. Given the theme and the way it’s presented, you’d be forgiven for believing the brand to be much older than it is; it actually launched in 2016, and so it’s only currently four years old.
Are the services as dated? Yes and no. If we look at the promos, there’s some room for improvement and space for more regular deals, but generally speaking users get a good range of rewards. A fine example of these rewards is the welcome deal, which is split into three parts, coming in the guise of a 100%, 50%, and another 50% deal, each coming with an extra of game specific free spins to play. The total amount you can bag yourself is a cool £200 in bonus monies. Just be mindful that all bonuses come with a x30 rollover. Alongside this, there’s hundreds of pokies and table based games we know and love. Users also have the peace of mind that the support team is on hand between 8am and midnight via live chat and phone support.
We bring to you another sportsbook and casino now, this time in the form of the 2003 established 10Bet Casino. At first, we were quite skeptical of the age of the site, especially considering how busy and contemporary the interface is, however, we can confirm that 10Bet is that old. Not that it shows it one bit.
As we just mentioned, the site isn’t very user friendly, and so if you ever feel lost, make sure to give the team a message via email and/or live chat; operational hours are 24/7, so someone is always on hand. In regards to other services, we’re afraid that the sports betting takes centrestage with this brand, and so the games catalogue isn’t as diverse as other iGaming labels, and the promos are extremely limited. Not ignoring the unfortunate fact that the bonuses come with hefty terms and little rewards; the welcome deal expects users to deposit at least £50 to qualify! The only saving grace here is the below average x30 rollover. Still, if you want free spins on Cash Noir or £5 in bonus cash for classic first person titles, 10Bet Casino is for you.
To conclude our list, we come to the Irish themed O’Reels, released in 2017. In a similar fashion to Pots of Luck, the design is outdated by today’s iGaming standards, and yet there’s a rustic charm to this Irish themed website. What is more, thanks to its clunky layout, all the important services are well highlighted and easy to find.
In-keeping with its Irish counterpart, this sister site welcomes users in with a series of free spins, all in the form of first deposit bonuses; up to three groups of games can be secured, provided you’re a new user with three lots of £10 to spend. Although this sounds cheap, the rollover amount is a high x50, and so the two balance and cancel one another out, creating a happy medium welcome deal for O’Reels newbies. The games are a decent mix of one armed bandits and casino classics, coming from a selective catalogue of well known developers. As for support, that’s available through live chat and/or email, up to midnight GMT every day of the week.
Betfred has been around since the 1960s, meaning that a lot of people know the name even if they’re not certain about much else regarding the brand. Given how respected the company is, it makes sense that Betfred Casino, and the sister sites we’ve listed, are regulated by several governing bodies. Looking at Betfred Casino specifically, we can see that it’s regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.
The list of developers isn’t as extensive as you’d expect with such a big name, however, you’ll still see iGaming greats like Playtech and IGT in there. Furthermore, there’s also smaller but equally known brands, such as Blueprint Gaming, Ash Gaming, and Realistic Games.
