Ladbrokes is a British-based gambling and betting company that was founded in 1886. They are one of the biggest businesses in their industry specialising in sports betting as well as offering markets in poker, financial betting, games and bingo.
They have extensive markets while offering boosts on accumulators and some brilliant offers for signing-up as new customers. There are more than 800,000 active customers online and have over 2,700 betting shops in the UK, Spain, Ireland and Belgium. As these numbers show they are one of the most popular betting companies around. In July 2015, Ladbrokes merged with Gala Coral Group further increasing their customer base. Even though Ladbrokes don’t have extravagant odds in their respective markets they are very well known for their helpful stats and results centre as well as news from all the different sports. Ladbrokes bet app is a very convenient free mobile app on all smartphones from where you can access everything the same as on your desktop.
Ladbrokes Sign-Up Offer
Ladbrokes has many brand-new customer sign-up offers for all different types of bettors that frequently change and give you a lot of value even before you have started betting.
Matched Free Bet
The sign-up offer that I advise most is the matched free bet.
All you have to do to qualify for this bet is:
- Sign-up with the promo code “F20”
- Place a bet on any sport of your choice with odds greater than 1/2 (which is 1.5 in decimal odds)
- That’s it! You’ll then be funded a free bet with the same value as your original bet up to £50.
- For example – you can place a £10 bet on Tottenham to beat Leicester at odds of 13/20 and you will then be given £10 in a single free bet no matter the outcome.
Terms: Beware the free bet does expire in 7 days so plan when you will activate this because you do not want it to go to waste.
There is also an add-on for this offer for all customers which includes what they call a 5+ acca insurance. This gives you your stake back as a free bet if one of the picks loses in an acca of 5 or more folds.
Ladbrokes Ongoing Promotions
To stay on top of the betting world, Ladbrokes have to continuously outmatch their competitors. The best way for them to do that apart from attract new customers is to keep the current customers by giving out promotions and special offers.
The first one to look at is the Daily price boosts which as you can tell change on a daily basis. These are boosts on odds for selected matches in selected sports but there is a decent variety. For example, today there are odds boosts for Aberdeen to be leading Celtic at half-time at boosted odds of 5/1 instead of 4/1. Another example is Cleveland Indians to win the first innings against Chicago Cubs at boosted odds of 9/2 instead of 18/5. For NBA bettors they have Cleveland Cavs to beat Toronto by 1-2 points increased from 17/2 to 10/1. Even though these are not large boosts they can definitely add up increasing your value, adding a bit of fun into your bets and don’t forget they are available every day.
The second promotion they are offering is for Ladbrokes Bingo where you play £10 and you will be given £40. Sadly with this promotion there are a few terms and conditions that do not help sweeten the offer. There are wagering requirements which is 2 x the bonus amount of £40 pound. You have to be careful when opting for free bets as there are requirements such as these which will make the offer less desirable.
Ladbrokes Mobile App
Ladbrokes has a mobile bet app which is accessible via download to Android, iPhone and iPad and Windows Phone. This is free to use and download and it mimics the mobile site.
Ladbrokes App Experience
Ladbrokes’s bet app has a very simple interface and is fully interactive. There is a menu on the side which has all the sports as well as ongoing offers. There is also the settings tab. You can access your whole account in one button and you have the ability to deposit and withdraw to and from your account through PayPal, credit and debit card, skrill and many others with many security measures in place to ensure the safety of your account.
You can also play the games through this app and even virtual blackjack while talking to the dealers. As I mentioned earlier there are the stats and results pages and the news which is also easily accessible through the app.
Overall, Ladbrokes’ mobile app is very convenient to help you bet on the go whether it be at your mates house or the pub.
Ladbrokes Betting Markets
There is an extensive amount of markets available through Ladbrokes and they have a large variety of bets available in many different sports ranging from Football to Greyhounds to American Baseball.
However, the selections of sports is the only disappointing factor for Ladbrokes as there are not that many. For example there are only 10 sports that you have access to where other bookmakers can have over 20. This however means they only deal in their specialities so if you normally tend to bet on 1 or 2 sports then this could be valuable to you.
You can choose to bet singles or accumulators including different sports in the same bet. Recently in May 2016, Ladbrokes added an ‘Edit Your Acca’ feature which allows you to remove selections from your accumulator before they have been played. This is an exciting addition to accumulator betting due to it allowing the odds to move in your favour therefore increasing your value per bet. There is more information on how this exactly works on the Ladbrokes website so check that out before you make any decisions.
Bottom Line – Should You Download Ladbrokes’ App?
All in all, Ladbrokes are an exceptional bookmaker that are always improving and trying to make their bookie the best. I have had a Ladbrokes account for a couple of years and their customer service is very helpful and are very easy to contact.
The mobile app works brilliantly and is very simple to use. I advise you to search through their markets first and look to see if they have markets for the sport of your choice. Then all there is left to do is grab that worthwhile sign-up offer of up to £50 and have fun betting with them.
