Ladbrokes is a British-based live and online sportsbook that provides bettors a diverse array of markets and wager formats. In the following article, we’ll review the online opportunities available at Ladbrokes Sports, including markets and promotions, and cover the basics, such as how to create an account, how to place bets, and how to clear bonuses.
How to Sign Up
Ladbrokes allows you to create an account online or in any of its local shops. Accounts are valid online and in person. Signing up for an account online is easy. Simply visit Ladbrokes.com, and then click on the green “BET NOW” button. The site will request personal details, and then require you to accept the terms and conditions.
How to Make a Deposit
As part of the sign-up process, you’ll likely choose a banking option. If not, you can do so when making your first deposit. Popular options include Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and Moneybookers. Ladbrokes Sports also allows in-store deposits, including those made in cash. You can enter the promotion code “FB50” here to take advantage of the Ladbrokes free bet described below.
Ladbrokes Bonus & Promotions
At the Ladbrokes Sportsbook, the basic Ladbrokes promotion is a £50 free bet. Simply use the promo code ‘FB50’ when signing up, and then place a bet of at least £5. Ladbrokes will immediately match your stake with a free bet. If you bet £5, the free bet will be worth £5, and if you bet £50, the free bet will be worth £50. There’s no need to clear. Any winnings from that free bet is yours to do with as you please, including withdrawing and closing out the account.
Ladbrokes also has a wide array of ongoing promotions at their sportsbook. For instance, you can get an additional three £10 free bets by wagering £10 via the mobile sports app. (Check out iPad Casino – the Ladbrokes mobile casino works on the iPhone and iPad!) The book also has refund promos, such as refunding your bet if your greyhound finishes second by a neck, and there are other daily opportunities for free bets.
How to Place Bets
Ladbrokes allows you to place bets in shop, via telephone, on the website and through the mobile app. Both the site and app are similar: Select the sport category. Ladbrokes presents a list of markets. You can filter the markets by various characteristics of the event and the wager. When you’ve found your bet, select it, set the amount, confirm it, and then Ladbrokes will transfer you to banking if the account doesn’t have enough to cover the bet.
