Ladbrokes was found in 1886 by Messrs Schwind and Pendleton, who at that time were commission agents for horses. The name Ladbrokes came from the Ladbroke Hall, Worcestershire where the horses were trained. It was officially a brand name in 1902 when the future bookmaker moved in London. The betting and gaming giant surely has a rich history and nowadays it’s still based in London. More precisely in Rayners Lane, Harrow. Ladbrokes is a large organisation with more than 2400 retail betting offices only in UK and Ireland and even more around Spain and Belgium. The bookmaker is known to be the largest betting provider in the UK and probably the biggest retail bookie worldwide. According to statistics from 2014, Ladbrokes has about 13 000 employees, revenue of £1 174 million and net income of nearly £41.0 million. The slogan of this enterprise is surely a strong one – “The world’s leading sports betting and gaming company”. The company is still growing and acquiring companies all over the world (Australia for example). They have a very strong presence in over 50 countries. On top of that they have built a great reputation amongst their customers.
This traditional online bookmaker has an exceptional list of offered markets and betting choices. Ladbrokes pretty much offers everything related to sports betting, such as soccer, American football, athletics, water polo, Aussie rules, martial arts, badminton, bandy, baseball, greyhound racing, basketball, bowls, swimming, boxing, cricket, darts, futsal, Gaelic sports, golf, rugby, handball, horse racing, ice hockey, motor racing, floorball, rowing, snooker, tennis, trotting, cycling, volleyball, winter sports and field hockey. On top of all the sports opportunities, the bookie provides access to its poker and casino rooms, its platforms for bingo and other small games. You can easily pass the time with some Poker, Slots, Roulette and Baccarat. There is also lotto and backgammon available to play. In addition to all this, customers are free to take part in the other markets related to politics, weather, financials and entertainment.
Ladbrokes offers amazing mobile experience on their tablet and smartphone application. Clients can enjoy live streaming and betting on both mobile and desktop. Betting enthusiasts can also wager by phone. Unfortunately, there are also some restrictions applied to some countries. USA, Germany, Hong Kong, Turkey, Russia, Finland, Portugal and Romania are all forbidden to use Ladbrokes’ betting services.
For a respected and reputable online bookie like Ladbrokes, it’s natural to offer excellent odds and betting types. The odds of an even match are 1.91 – 1.91 (for American sports). When it comes to football betting, almost every kind of scheme is presented – half-time/full-time, first and last goalscorer, under/over, double chance, first half, number of corners, first and last card, penalties or time of first goal. The possible combinations are also quite colourful. You can take advantage of Double, Treble, Trixie, Patent, Yankee, Lucky15, Heinz, Super Heinz and Goliath.
The minimum bet the lowest possible (€0.1) and the maximum value can vary. The limit on winnings is set to €1 million per day for football bets. Other limits may vary. However, they are quite low for live wagers.
