Bet Fred originated from one single betting shop in Salford back in 1967. The name comes from one of its co founders Fred Done. Fred was one of the first bookies to pay out prematurely. It was March with just under 2 months left to the end of the season when they paid out on Manchester United winning the league. To their surprise Arsenal sneaked it by one point. It did serve as a great but costly publicity stunt. They are now over 1,000 Bet Fred shops creating a turnover of over £3 billion. Fred Done invented the Lucky 15 Bet in 1984 and launched betfred.com in 2004. Betfred also successfully completed the purchase of the Tote in July 2011.
