Ladbrokes is one of the largest, oldest and most valuable bookmakers in Great Britain. The company was accepting bets for horse races back in 1886 and since 2000 it has been on the market of online bets. Bookmaker Ladbrokes is registered on Gibraltar, but got a sublicense from the British government as well, what promotes players trusting their money to a reliable firm. The company employs more than 14 700 employees in the UK, Belgium, Spain, has more than 4200 land-based betting shops and according to estimates it yearly services around 2 million customers (both online and in betting shops). Bookmaker Ladbrokes merges with company Gala Coral in July 2015.
Sports betting offer at Ladbrokes
Ladbrokes bookmaker offers a very wide range of bets and any player can find something for himself. The market assortment is huge and includes bets on cricket, snooker, chess and also political and media events. Horse and dog races have their own sections, often being broadcasted live. The odds set by Ladbrokes for the most popular football leagues can compete with those offered by the leading bookmaker companies, what of course, is this bookmaker’s advantage. However, fans of lower football leagues can be a bit disappointed, although offers look quite solid, the odds do not impress. There are two kinds of odds (decimal, fractional) and also all the possible kinds of bets which you can see at the best bookmakers on the market, including European and Asian handicaps, corners, cards, exact result, over/under and many more.
The live betting section works rather fine, the number of offered events may not be the biggest but is satisfactory. From the number of the most important events live broadcasts are held, others are accompanied by virtual graphics, presenting the game’s course. With a free heart we can enlist Ladbrokes’ live betting offer to the number of the best on the bookmaker bets market.
It is rumoured that Ladbrokes lacks behind Bet365 and BetVictor due to less attractive promotions and bonuses. One of the bonuses which are offered by the bookmaker is a welcome bonus in kind of the first risk free bet in amount of £50.

Ladbrokes bookmaker’s site looks modern and elegant, it is simple in servicing. Site navigation should not create any problems, the majority of functions are at hand. The external view and color scale are pleasant for the eye.
An app for smartphones/tablets works smoothly, simple and quick, using which you can bet, check your account, etc. Visually the app is very good, simple and intelligible in servicing. The app also allows to use free SMS-notifications which inform about interesting events of football and horse races.
ladbrokes is my second choice bookmaker as it offers good odds and bonuses, it has the best horse racing betting offer. I wish all others were so simple and straightforward, paid bonuses as advertised without any problem.
