Ladbrokes Review & Free Bet

When it comes to betting, Ladbrokes are one of the most popular betting company’s there is. Founded in 1886 as ‘Ladbrokes Coral’ in London, Ladbrokes have proved to be one of the giants in the gambling industry. If you are the type of person who likes to gamble on a variety of sports, then I would definitely suggest taking a look at Ladbrokes. The CEO of the company is Jim Mullen, whilst the chairman is John Kelly. Renowned for their reliability and experience in the betting field, Ladbrokes have also developed an app for their users, so those who have IOS and Android devices can bet conveniently from their mobile phone. In 2016 the hugely successful company had a revenue of £1.508 billion.

Website Layout:

Ladbrokes have gone with a common layout for their website, this meaning that it is quite basic and easy for the user to view the different options available. All the main content is displayed on one page. In the middle of the page are the most popular odds for the events that are showing on that day, just beneath are the live and in play fixtures. Towards the right side are all the promotions and bonuses that are available to new and existing customers. On the top right there is the option to ‘Log in’ or ‘Join now’ which are in green and red tabs, so it is easy for the user to notice. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see the different types of payment methods that are accepted, the term and conditions and cookie policy.

Ladbrokes have decided to go with their classic and well known Red and White colour scheme for their website. The colours used are sophisticated and eye catching in my opinion, there are different tabs all along the website which are filled in grey. The rest of the site are all red and white apart from the green ‘log in’ tab.


Ladbrokes have ensured that they stand out from their competitors and therefore have made their market very broad. The website consists of near enough every sport available to bet on. I personally am a very much all rounded sports fan, so I would definitely recommend using Ladbrokes to any other sports fan because of the options available to the user. The sports available include, Football, Horse Racing, Greyhounds, Darts, Tennis, Cricket, Golf, Boxing, Cycling, Hurling, Bowls, Baseball, Formula 1, Ice Hockey, MMA and Basketball.

Welcome Bonus:

There are many different bonuses and offers that are available to new users who are signing up and also existing customers. The most popular welcome bonus is “BET £5 GET £20 IN FREE BETS”. Another bonus that is available to football fans is “Bet £10 and get £30 in free bets” when betting on premier league fixtures. There are always terms and conditions which are very important when it comes to offers and bonuses, so the user must be sure to properly check all the details.

In Play Betting:

When the user clicks on the ‘In Play & Streaming’ tab, they will be brought to a page which displays all the live events which are being broadcasted on that day. The user then has the option to select which sport fixtures they want to view, this could be, Football, Tennis, Basketball, Volleyball, Ice Hockey etc. Just next to the fixtures, there is the heading ‘Match Betting’, where all the live odds are displayed. If the user scrolls down, then they will be taken to the ‘upcoming’ page which shows all the upcoming live in play events which are available to bet on throughout the week.

Payment Methods/Client Support:

Ladbrokes accept all the well known and popular payment methods, some of which include, Visa Electron, Visa Debit, Mastercard, Maestro, PayPal, Bank Transfer and E-wallets. Ladbrokes have stated that they process withdrawal requests almost immediately, however depending on the user and their bank, it can take up 1 to 5 banking days for the funds to reach the account. Ladbrokes do not charge their users for withdrawal and the minimum amount a user can withdraw is £0.01. Users can also view their pending withdrawals from the ‘account’ section on either the website or mobile phone app.  Ladbrokes have multiple methods of support for their customers, these include, Free phone number which is open from 8am – 22:30pm every day, a free online chat, email, twitter and Facebook.


Overall, I genuinely do feel that Ladbrokes are one of the best Sports betting companies available. I can clearly tell that the company have taken their time and effort to make something which is beneficial to all types of users. There is a wide range of sports available for the users to choose from, there is great support available for users to take advantage of if there ever are any issues, an app has been created, along with a website which in my opinion shows great versatility as some companies usually have just one and not the other but Ladbrokes have got both. I really like the way in which the website is laid out, in a easy and simple to navigate format, and I am very impressed in the bonus offers and promotions that are available to the users because it shows that they value their customers. Another bonus is the colour scheme used by Ladbrokes, I personally feel that the red and white looks great and is unique rather than the typical bright colours used by most companies. It really is hard to fault Ladbrokes as they have done a tremendous job , if I was to pick out an improvement I would just say that the adverts and bonuses should be advertised at the side rather than at the center of the page, to keep it looking neat.
