Ladbrokes are one of the heavyweights and largest presences in online betting. They are Britain’s second biggest bookmaker and they also support sport very well through sponsorships. The company itself dates back to 1886, but of course their online operations are much more recent than that! They do have a heavy retail presence across Britain and they have been heavy investors in online technology to present the best possible experience to their customers. They remain one of the most focused companies in building digital capabilities, and already support customers in seventeen countries across the world.
Ladbrokes have an impressive sports book and there is quick access to it through a shortened, yet comprehensive menu. This menu itself is expandable to go beyond the presence of the main sports, which are the main focus. There is good depth in markets to be found by expanding the menu, but if you want quick access to the likes of Football, Racing, Tennis and Golf, then the site is setup for that. Highlights of the day’s sportsbook are presented on the home page anyway, so you are unlikely to miss any big events. Horse racing is particularly well supported. A quick look at any sport will show the events available within and then going even deeper, there is a great variety of bet types and market options. The sportsbook is extensive and yet it is very well organised and there is clear value around to be had with the bookmaker. You can customise the Ladbrokes menu by selecting your favourites too.
Bonuses and Promotions
Online betting site Ladbrokes have improved upon the number of betting bonus promotions very well, and they can pretty much be relied on for value. There is a leaning towards the major sports for these promotions, which usually are presented as Money Back Specials. There is great value around in horse racing markets though because they do offer best odds guaranteed as well as other event specific offerings. New customers signing up for an account can get up to three free £50 bets as a welcome bonus.
