A trustworthy bookmaker that operate since 1886 and is well-known UK brand. Being the one the UK's betting giants is also the biggest minus for Ladbrokes as European customers can't participate in the free bet and other promotions.Ladbrokes sportsbook offers live streaming to their customers.
ladbrokes-website.png A long established British bookmaking company that has years of experience in the business and operates more than 3,500 betting shops in England, Scotland and Wales. They are online since 2000 and besides United Kingdom license Ladbrokes is one of the few bookies that are approved by Northern Territory in Australia to accept bets from their punters.
It offers a variety of sports to choose from and previously the UK-centred bookie now cover a lot of minor sports and leagues. There was also complaints about the number of markets per game as there were simply not enough of those to choose from and that was a big problem as not all punters want to bet solely on the winner of a match. They usually gave just one market on goal line even on the high-profile matches, which means that you were able either to bet on over or under 2.5 goals and nothing else. Asian handicap betting was also a big minus but complete sports offer now fits into the highest standards just like at their top competitors such as Bet365.
The odds they offer are above the industry average and also differ depending on the sport or the league. To find average payout for the six most popular sports we have stated Ladbrokes margins in the table with the quick facts. The good thing regarding odds is that although they are amongst the highest on the market they don't fluctuate much, almost not at all, therefore you will not have to shop for higher prices early in the week.
Reliability is probably what puts Ladbrokes Coral Group among the world's leaders as they take up millions of bets and have a turnover in billions each year. They are highly reliable and are using the latest technology which guarantees to punters that their funds are completely safe. Over 1,000,000 online customers are a testament to this.
Besides aforementioned, their cashier service is also one of the things which make them a very trusted operation. Money can be deposited to your account using the variety of methods, such as credit cards, Skrill, or bank transfer and we should also point out that Ladbrokes is one of the few betting sites that accept PayPal payments. You can deposit and withdraw money completely free of charge and your transactions will be processed very quickly and efficiently. They accept all the major currencies and the minimum deposit is set to £5.
Customer service team works 24/7 to accommodate all your needs and online help is also available, thus you will receive a response from support practically in no time.
The website has been redesigned in 2016 from in our opinion too simple design to more modern look which is a must for a high-profile bookies. At the top-right of the homepage, you can find a form to open an account or to log in if you already have an account. On the top-middle, you can access to a variety of extra services they provide such as Poker, Casino, Virtuals, Lottos and Exchange.
You can choose how the odds will be displayed and also the preferred language, although the language choice is really narrow and limited on English, Swedish and German. The top-left side is reserved for a start-up menu with the list of all sports available to choose from, whereas all the information you will need about Ladbrokes can be found on the bottom of the home page. The middle section of the homepage is reserved for betting events and special offers. The website is pretty easy to navigate and you can see all available matches sorted either by the league or by time and date, which can be really helpful.
If you decide to start betting at Ladbrokes clicking the open account button will begin a registration form, which is very easy to complete. The fields will become checked once you have entered the correct data, which makes this whole process a lot clearer. You will be able to choose your own username and password and will receive an email including your username once you have completed the registration process. The whole procedure will be done swiftly and that is definitely a good thing.
The betting procedure is simple and to start first pick the desired sport on the left-hand side before clicking on the match and seeing all the available markets. Once you have picked your bets they will appear on the bet slip which will remain on the top right even if you navigate away from the page. You will be able to choose between placing single or combo bets, whereas your possible winnings will be shown once you click on the check bet button.
For the end, we would like to mention that Ladbrokes offers £50 free bet to new players and in the same time we are obligated to spoil happiness of players not residing in the UK and Ireland as they can't claim it.

Other services offered
  • Casino – If you like Playtech's and Blueprint Gaming slots then Ladbrokes casino will be a good choice. Otherwise, I have found that many their competitors now offers games from top providers such as Netent and those are my personal favourites. If you are still attracted by Marvel slots and other games offered by Playtech casinos, give them a chance.
  • Poker – Play Hold'em, Hi/Lo, Omaha and Stud poker in the room that uses Playtech skin and is part of the iPoker network. After joining you will be automatically granted with the welcome poker bonus of 200% up to £1,200. Their promotion is following the same bonus policies as at the other poker room but here you will need to accumulate 170 points to get £5 bonus. They will give you 16 points for every £1 raked. In case you want to play on the go Ladbrokes poker app is available for iOS and Android mobile devices.
  • Betting exchange – Back or Lay any selection to win an event. Ladbrokes exchange service has improved greatly in recent time and is a serious competitor to the Betfair, which is still no.1 exchange in our opinion. In fact, they even charge the same commission rate in the range 2–5% that depends on your VIP status. We would like to mention that they support Cash-out feature, but are not limited only to this one. They have many cool features and we especially like Push Technology feature that gives you the preview of market information and prices in real time. Another feature that deserves to be mentioned is Pro Forma P&L that will show you potential profit and loss before even placing a bet.
Affiliate program Ladbrokes Partners can be very attractive to new affiliates as they offer a 50–70% revenue share for the first three months. After initial three months, you will be switched to the flat 40%. And now we are coming to the problem because they are known for decreasing that 40% commission to 10% in case you can bring them enough new depositors. The bad thing is that they have a negative carryover and they use Mexos software that is not so popular amongst affiliates and to be honest even we don't like it, especially when compared with Netrefer or Income access. The strongest point for joining to their affiliate program is the fact that you will promote trusted UK brand.
