Ladbrokes was effectively founded in 1902 as a small agency handling horse racing bets for England’s high society, but in the interim the Ladbrokes name has become synonymous with the gambling industry. Ladbrokes today operates over 2,700 retail betting shops in the UK, Ireland, Belgium and Spain and is a world leader in remote betting with around 100,000 telephone customers and over 750,000 active online clients. Collectively, Ladbrokes’ betting and gaming businesses generate over £1 billion in annual revenues.

The Ladbrokes betting and gaming website was launched in 2000. Ladbrokes is one of the most trusted names in online betting, offering safe, secure betting on a wide variety of sports. Betting on horse racing, greyhound racing, football and many other sports is available in 18 languages and currencies. Online customers can create their own list of favourite sports, or simply choose from a list of categories displayed in alphabetical order.

A click on horse racing, for example, displays the next two races due off, together with the current price of each runner. Customers have the opportunity to select multiple races from those on offer on any given day and effectively compile their own horse racing coupon. A “view racecard” option lists all of the runners, prices, etc for the selected races, together with comprehensive form and an expert race overview and it is simply a question of clicking on selections to add them to the betting slip. This can be a boon for multiple bet punters, say, on a Saturday afternoon, when five, six or more races are usually shown on Channel 4 or BBC. On days when there is no racing on terrestrial television, Ladbrokes online customers can still watch live racing on Ladbrokes TV, directly from the website, simply by staking at least £1 on the race in question.

Ladbrokes offers a variety of free bets and promotions, which vary day to day in conjunction with forthcoming events, for both new and existing customers. Currently, any new online customer placing a bet of at least £5 on the World Cup has the opportunity to receive a further four free bets to the same stake, whilst retail customers can earn free bets by accumulating points with the Ladbrokes Odds On! Reward Card. Enhanced prices are also being offered for multiple bets on World Cup warm-up games.

Other useful features on the website include live commentaries, scores and results for football matches, horse racing commentaries and a bet calculator. For those customers who prefer decimal odds, it is easy to toggle back and forth between fractional and decimal odds. The Ladbrokes website is also a portal to online gaming including poker, casino and bingo. Ladbrokes Poker offers a sign up bonus of up to £675 and a free £10 for any new customer who bets £5 or more during the World Cup, whilst casino slot players can win up to £200 with the Hat Trick Hero promotion. There is also an entire section of the Ladbrokes website devoted to financial betting.
