5/5

Ladbrokes app is fairly simple, and is basically Ladbrokes mobile site, inside a mobile appLadbrokes 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 – it is worth noting that Coral operates alongside Ladbrokes, and we have a review of Coral bookmakers app on our site as well. 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.

New Customer Bonus

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:

  1. Sign-up with the promo code “F20”
  2. Place a bet on any sport of your choice with odds greater than 1/2 (which is 1.5 in decimal odds)
  3. That’s it! You’ll then be funded a free bet with the same value as your original bet up to £50.
  4. 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.

18+. UK+IRE only. Promo code ‘G30’ required. Min first bet £10. Must be placed within 14 days of account reg. £30 credited as 3 x £10 free bets. Not valid with CashOut. Free bet valid for 4 days.T&Cs Apply.

The Ladbrokes sign up offer comes in the form of bet £5 and get £20 as free bets. This welcome offer is subject to the following Terms & Conditions:

  • New customers only. 
  • Minimum deposit and first bet for £5.
  • The first bet must be placed within 14 days of registration. 
  • The qualifying bet has to be at odds of 1.50 (1/2) or bigger.
  • Customers receive £20 in the form of four free bets for £5.
  • The free bets expire after 4 days.
  • Free bet stake is not included in any winnings.
  • General Ladbrokes Terms & Conditions apply. 

The Ladbrokes welcome offer is a 400% matched bet bonus because the value of the free bets is four times the value of the qualifying bet. The bonus is for a modest amount but the terms are transparent and achievable. 

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.

Mobile App Features

Ladbrokes is a traditional online bookmaker so customers can take advantage of the following betting features:

Live Betting

In-Play & Streaming is the first option on the main menu on the Ladbrokes Home page after the A-Z of sports option. The current bet in-play events are displayed and there is a calendar for live betting options over the next few days. At the time of writing the Ladbrokes in-play betting events were related to football, tennis, ice hockey and Esports. However, several other sports appeared on the calendar of upcoming live bets. Betting is suspended after a key event such as a goal, sending-off or penalty in football and break of serve or end of a set in tennis. As part of the Ladbrokes live betting service, updated odds reappear after about one minute and the live betting continues.

Cash Out

Customers with Ladbrokes can cash out bets across a selection of sports and betting markets. The most popular bets for cashing out are the match winner in football and tennis. The facility can also be used for the correct score in football and set correct score in tennis. The Ladbrokes cash out option is being applied to more sports and markets. Pre-match bets and earlier live bets can be cashed out during an in-play event. The objective is to ensure a profit or limit the loss despite the outcome of the event. Ladbrokes offer customers a cash out value. The bettor can fully or partially cash out the bet or reject the offer. Customers have the Ladbrokes cash out in app option.

Ladbrokes Cash Out

Live Streaming

Customers must login to gain access to Ladbrokes live streaming of sports events and horse racing. An icon next to live event indicates if live streaming is available. There must be a bet placed before the live steaming of any horse race is available. The coverage includes the race and the loading procedure which tells bettors if a horse is settled or agitated. Live bettors can also view a graphical representation of the action and refer to live match data before placing a bet. There are many sports and events that can be live streamed and more are being added over time.

Acca Betting

Acca betting is popular with Ladbrokes because there is the potential for a decent win for a small stake. Users of the mobile app like to create multiples with a number of teams and then follow the matches. An acca with Ladbrokes includes four or more tams and the most popular sport for the bet are football and horse racing.

Ladbrokes offers some of the finest Acca packages around, that includes odds boosts, acca insurance, and much more. Check out Ladbrokes’ Best Acca Around promotion.

There are limits to the most that can be won from an acca on any one day. Selections that are subject to odds boosts can be included in accas with four selections or more.

Ladbrokes Acca Insurance

GetAPrice

Customised betting is a relatively new concept and the Ladbrokes version is named GetAPrice. Bettors can create a personalised bet from a number of options in a football match. For example, the number of corners, bookings and goals can be combined in one bet. Some of the options are related so bookmakers reduce the odds accordingly. 

The Ladbrokes “request a bet” feature complements the welcome offer and ongoing promotions. However, it is not a major incentive to open an account because most of the competitors have a similar feature. Customers pick the bet and Tweet it to Ladbrokes. A member of staff sends the offer in the form of a Tweet with a link to be followed to place the bet. The customer is not obliged to place the bet at the GetAPrice odds. The feature is used on the Ladbrokes betting app in the same way as on desktop computers.

Ladbrokes Markets

The most popular betting sports and events with Ladbrokes measured by bets placed and markets are described below:

Football

Football is the most popular betting sport with Ladbrokes. The website and mobile app publish odds for many leagues and competitions all around the world. By far the most popular betting league is the Premier League in England followed by the Champions League. Ante-post betting gets a boost every two years when there is a World Cup or European Championships finals. Ladbrokes Premier League betting includes the outright winner and leading scorer and team and player Specials.

Ladbrokes displays the three-way match result market for each fixture with a link to the related markets. Customers can select from up to 200 related betting options. These markets appear under the headings of Main Markets, Goals, Goalscorer, Halves, Score and Team Goals. The Ladbrokes football betting product includes the GetAPrice customised betting facility. The cash out option is available on the main in-play betting markets. The app replicates the website for football betting.

Horse Racing

Ladbrokes horse racing betting features the major races in the UK. The biggest betting meeting of the year is the Cheltenham Festival in March. The biggest betting standalone race is the Grand National in April. These two racing occasions attract many bettors who don’t bet on horse racing during the rest of the year. The site’s racing product features Best Odds Guaranteed and non-runner/no bet as part of Ladbrokes Cheltenham and Ladbrokes Grand National betting.

The regular racing service covers every meeting in the UK and Ireland. Customers can place win and each way bets in singles, doubles, trebles and multiples. Horse racing lends itself to system bets which combine three or more horses in permutations. Customers can place Forecast and Tricast bets. Ladbrokes offers odds on the major overseas meetings and international races. The operator often has price boosts and extra places for the main races in the UK and Ireland.

Cricket

The Ladbrokes cricket service covers domestic and international cricket in a number of formats. Cricket matches are played in Twenty20, One Day International, domestic and Test match tournaments. There is a ODI and Twenty20 cricket World Cup every four years which boost cricket betting. The most popular cricket betting markets are the match winner and top batsman and bowler. Cricket is popular with UK bookmakers and Ladbrokes provides a comprehensive service.

Tennis

Tennis is the second most popular betting sport with Ladbrokes after football. Ladbrokes tennis betting includes matches on the ATP and WTA tours, Challenger events and International Tennis Federation (ITF) tournaments. The sport is rare in that there are more bets placed in in-play markets than in the pre-match betting. The most popular tennis betting markets are the two-way match winner, handicaps and totals. Ladbrokes offers ante post betting on the upcoming Grand Slam tournaments and international team competitions. Ladbrokes Esports betting is hugely popular and is catching up with tennis with regards the number of bets and turnover.

Politics

Ladbrokes political betting focuses on elections in the UK, United States and France. Customers can bet on the next leaders of the main political parties in Britain and the result of the next election. The Brexit issue had led to an increase in betting on Politics. Ladbrokes covers the subject with a range of European Union related markets. The site also features a number of special markets related to Donald Trump and his future.

Ladbrokes Tote Betting

Ladbrokes accepts Tote bets on racing in the UK. The Tote is a pool betting operation that declares a dividend for the winner of a race and the horses that fill the payout places. The two most popular meeting-related Tote bets are the Jackpot and Placepot. The Ladbrokes Jackpot rules mean bettors are trying to identify the winners of the first six races on a selected card. The Ladbrokes Placepot rules mean bettors are trying to identify six placed horses at a selected meeting. The Tote also runs a bet that involves selecting the winner of six races from one or more tracks.

18+. UK+IRE only. Promo code ‘G30’ required. Min first bet £10. Must be placed within 14 days of account reg. £30 credited as 3 x £10 free bets. Not valid with CashOut. Free bet valid for 4 days.T&Cs Apply.

About The Company

Ladbrokes began operating as a telephone and credit bookmaker in the UK and opened betting offices when they were legalised in 1961. The company still has an estate of cash betting offices but has developed a major online presence. Ladbrokes acquired Gala Coral in 2016 to create one of the biggest betting companies in the world. The joint company is quoted on the London Stock Exchange and was a member of the FTSE 250 before being bought by GVC Holdings in 2018.

Ladbrokes has a trusted reputation and is one of the most recognised betting brands in the UK. The company has a history of operating fairly but faced a fine from the UK Gambling Commission in 2019 for failings in the areas of money laundering and social responsibility. Ladbrokes have now put more measures in place to prevent problem gambling. The site features banner links to support bodies and the company is a member of the European Sports Betting Integrity body (ESSA).

Security

Ladbrokes is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. It is one of the most trusted regulatory bodies in the industry. The Commission can issue fines and revoke a licence. Ladbrokes meets the standards for compliance with regards free bets and promotions. Customers from outside the UK are subject to the regulations of the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner. Ladbrokes adopts safe and secure methods for the handling of personal data.

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.
