If you like apps, then Ladbrokes offers Android and iPhone apps which also work on tablets.
You can claim the £50 free bet through mobile as well.
Ladbrokes Live In-play Betting
Ladbrokes wouldn’t be complete without a live in-play betting service. Bet on a number of different sports while on the go, or relaxing in the pub.
You’ll also see that they offer a live feed of many sports as well. This excludes the Premier League which it’s impossible to get a licence for, but includes many other leagues.
Ladbrokes Website Design and Features
The Ladbrokes website is easy to navigate. They’ve recently updated it, so it has a super modern design. There are loads of sports to bet on and a large number of betting markets within them. They often have some tops odds as well.
Like other English high street bookmakers, Ladbrokes focuses well on horse racing and football. It is easy to find alternative markets for an event via the drop down menu next to it. One of the major things that sets Ladbrokes apart from other bookmakers is that they offer much higher betting limits.
Ladbrokes have recently gone down the route of Betfair and opened an exchange. Here you can bet against other users rather than Ladbrokes themselves. If you’d like to join the exchange, you’ll find a link on the top menu. Your first bet will be refunded as a £10 free bet if it loses.
