About Ladbrokes

In bookmaking terms, Ladbrokes has more history than the Magna Carta. They were founded in 1886 and have been permanently listed on the London Stock Exchange since 1966.  

The ‘Magic Sign’ as they are known, took their name for their offices ‘Ladbrokes Hall’ in Worcestershire but rapid growth in the mid-1960’s saw Ladbrokes become a recognized name the length and breadth of the UK.

Despite not acquiring their first betting shop until 1092, Ladbrokes operated a remarkable 15,000 shops in 1968.

While Ladbrokes shop number dwindled in the 1970’s and 80’s and they tinkered, unsuccessfully, with spread betting in the 1990’s Ladbrokes were rejuvenated by setting up shop in Gibraltar to take advantage of offering customer’s tax-free betting and then quickly jumping on the online betting bandwagon at the turn of the century.

High-Street Presence?

Ladbrokes currently operate over 4,280 betting shops across the UK, Ireland, Spain and Belgium.  ‘The Magic Sign’ remain the best known name in British bookmaking where they have 2,150 outlets and they are the UK’s second largest bookmaker by market share.

Other Ladbrokes Offers

Ladbrokes always have a number of ongoing concessions, primarily money-back offers, on the go.  These revolve around the major sporting events of the time, be it a football tournament, Wimbledon Tennis or the Cheltenham Festival.

They also have a number of staple promotions such as ‘Price Boosts’, ‘Bets Odds Guaranteed’ on Greyhound Racing and ‘Bets Odds Guaranteed Plus’ on horse racing which gives customers even bigger odds than the SP if they have taken the price about a winner that returns at a superior price.

Types of Ladbrokes Bets/Markets

Ladbrokes have categorised 35 different areas where punters can gamble at Ladbrokes.  They range from Chess to Mixed Martial Arts and Speedway to Cycling.

In drop-down menu where these are listed customers can find the daily ‘Price Boosts’ which invariably offer some outstanding value primarily on Football and Horseracing.

There is a disappointing lack of markets on horse racing at with match-bets restricted to just one per-race.  ‘Without the Favourite’ and ‘Place Only’ betting is available but there is no ‘Distance Betting’ or the ability to couple runners together as with other sites.

Football fans are catered for much better with 100+ markets available on all major games putting Ladbrokes in-line with all other major betting companies.

Bells & Whistles

If Ladbrokes have a blog and news section it is not easily found.  Their homepage does have a ‘Shop Locator’ which is massively convenient what with Ladbrokes allowing customers to deposit and withdraw funds ‘in-shop’.

They do feature what is becoming an ‘essential must have’ in-play steaming and similarly offer customers the opportunity to ‘cash out’.  

Probably the biggest advantage of Ladbrokes site is the ability back and lay selections on the Ladbrokes/Betdaq betting exchange with funds coming from the one simple wallet.

Ways to Bet at Ladbrokes

While not promoting it heavily Ladbrokes do continue to operate a tele-betting service.  Ladbokes Mobile betting is strongly touted by the ‘Magic Sign’ however and full details of that can be found on their web site.

Another way of placing bets at Ladbrokes is via their ‘Text Betting’ service which is very straightforward to use.

Ladbrokes Customer Service

There’s a full buffet of  ‘contact us’ options at Ladbrokes headlined by ‘Live Chat’, backed up with telephone lines and email options.  Furthermore there is also a ‘Self Service Help Centre’ which is very useful.

Payments & Withdrawals

Ladbrokes, who do not charge processing fees for deposits or withdrawals, accept Visa, Mastercard, Bank Transfer, PayPal, Skrill, Entropay, Maestro, Trustly and Paysafe payment methods.

Plus cash can be deposited/withdrawn over the counter at any of their UK and Irish shops.

Our Verdict – 7½/10

Ladbrokes website has a real corporate matter-of-fact look to it which does not endear us to it.  But behind that serious image you must not forget its ‘Price Boosts’ and in-house odds compilers often see their prices stand out amongst their rivals.

But, once again, it is easy to feel let down by the lack of market depth at Ladbrokes, who are left lagging by the likes of Boylesports when it comes to options on horse or greyhound races.

There is no questioning the £50 Ladbrokes free bets offer for new customers is brilliant but a lack of a loyalty scheme for customers is disappointing for us and probably costly for them.
