Ladbrokes Mobile Review

With 16,000 employees and 2,700 betting shops across the UK, Ireland, Belgium and Spain, Ladbrokes is one of the biggest, best known betting companies in the world. Since 2000, Ladbrokes have had a massive online presence with 13 different sites in 9 languages attracting 800,000 active players and have now developed an impressive mobile betting service that is proving to be a huge hit.

With a history going back to 1886, Ladbrokes are a UK based company, although the gaming operations are licensed and regulated in Gibraltar where the local Gambling Regulator will only grant a license to companies with an excellent track record, and good financial standing. All games must be independently audited, betting odds must provide a fair return to the customer, all banking must be secure, and the operator must be able to pay out all winnings promptly.

The Ladbrokes Sports and Casino mobile sites are accessed either by the Apple App Store for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices, or by text for other mobile devices. Any internet enabled phone can be used to play at the Ladbrokes mobile Sports and Casino sites including iPhones, Samsung Galaxy, Sony Ericsson Xperia , Nokia HTC Desire and Blackberry phones, and any tablet device including Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Kindle Fire and Lenovo Idea Tab. Currently Bingo is supported in a mobile format for Android devices only, but an iPhone version is on its way soon.

Players at Ladbrokes mobile get access to not only all the bonus offers available to those using PC's, but even some exclusive mobile bonuses. These vary quite frequently, but at Ladbrokes Sports the sort of offers you can expect above and beyond the desktop site are improved odds if your first scorer choice then scores a hat trick or a refund if your football score bet loses and the match ends 3 -0. There are different promotions each day for desktop PC and mobile bettors, ranging from free bets if certain players score the first goal, or money back if any particular Golf player wins the Masters.

Just about every sport can be bet on using the Ladbrokes mobile site, with a handy scroll bar across the top of the page giving you quick links to all major sports, and some minor ones including Chess, Volleyball, Ice Hockey and Handball. In just 3 - 4 clicks you can be betting on the NFL Conference winner, or who will win the first set at a particular Tennis match, or which horse will win the 3.15 at Kempton tomorrow. A full in-play service lets you follow the prices as the game unfolds.

The mobile casino gives you a streamlined version of the desktop site with all of the promotions that you would get if playing on a computer, which currently includes a £25 no deposit bonus, and 100% deposit match bonus up to £500 for new players, free spins, 25% cashback at the Live Dealer Casino, (iPad only), and a monthly 50% reload bonus. The games are somewhat limited with around 20 slots games, 6 video poker titles, Blackjack and Roulette, but the quality is very good and the slots titles include some of the most popular games at Ladbrokes including Immortal Romance, ThunderStruckII, Tomb Raider and Mega Moolah, with its' massive progressive jackpot that often exceeds £2 million.

Playing Ladbrokes Poker on a mobile device is a somewhat different process, with a downloadable app for Android devices, and a link for iPhones and iPads. There are a number of Limit, No Limit and Pot Limit Holdem games, at plenty of stake and buy in levels, although as there are no banking facilities available you will need to open an account at the main site first, and deposit the funds you will want for playing.

The Ladbrokes mobile service lets you sign up for a new account using your phone or tablet, or if you already have an account, you can just sign in with your existing username and password. Unlike many mobile services, you can deposit and withdraw funds using a credit or debit card. Deposit options that are available on the main site, like Neteller, Paypal, UKash and PaySafeCard cannot be used on a mobile, although you can of course deposit funds via the desktop site and have them available for use when playing on your mobile.

You can register and validate a card via your mobile as well as transfer money across the sports site, casino, and Poker sites using the one account. A huge range of currencies are supported throughout all Ladbrokes sites, including Pounds, Euros, US Dollars, Canadian Dollars, Yen, Swedish Kronor, Polish Zloty, Russian Rubles and more. Using 128-bit SSL technology, you can safely deposit and withdraw funds without risk, and this is the security standard used across the Ladbrokes network, with no compromises for mobile users.

Ladbrokes Customer Support can be contacted in a wide range of ways, with the most popular being the UK freephone numbers. The Sportsbook number is 0800-731-6191, or +44-208-515-2565 from outside the UK, and the Casino number is 0800-032-1133 for the UK, or +350-200-43003 from outside. There are dedicated email addresses for different sites, as follows - Sports - email contact form on site. Poker - . Casino - There is also a Live Chat service, and all contact methods usually get answered quickly, with my telephoned query about mobile deposit options being answered in seconds.
