Review

One of the largest and most recognisable bookmakers, Ladbrokes are doing their best to cater to the 20-35 male punter, the core betting market.  Their odds may not always be the most competitive but they cover a wide range of sports and markets and are extremely reliable.  I remember many years ago placing a bet in haste and accidentally betting the wrong side, Ladbrokes as a gesture of good will allowed me to cancel that bet and re-place it, something that is almost unheard of elsewhere. Whilst no UK bookmaker is particularly tolerant of continual winners, Ladbrokes is far better than most due to the confidence that it has with its linesmakers.  Ladbrokes offer huge maximum stakes and are an essential book in any betting portfolio.

Other Bonuses

Price Boosts

Ladbrokes will regularly boost the price of select doubles, especially for major football matches.

Opinion

The actual size of the price boost is never quite enough to tempt you to bet, unless you were already considering a bet on that game.   A nice addition but no deal breaker.

Best Odds Guaranteed Plus

Take an Early Price (EP) or Board Price and if the Starting Price (SP) is bigger Ladbrokes will not only pay you at the bigger price, they will boost the price further.  Applies to UK and Irish Horse races to a maximum stake of £200.

Opinion

If you take a price that subsequently drifts in the market but goes on to win, you will get paid at an even higher price than that starting price.  This offer is starting to creep in with a few bookmakers and is a genuinely great deal.  Ladbrokes have fairly competitive horse racing odds and this offer should be enough to entice punters away from the competition.

Acca insurance

Place a football acca with 5 legs or more on any Match Betting market and they will refund losing bets where only one leg lets you down, up to a maximum of £/€25 as a free bet.  Available for 1 acca per day and bonus funds will expire if not used within 7 days.

Applies to the following leagues: English (Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two, FA Cup, EFL Cup, EFL Trophy); Scotland (Ladbrokes Premiership, Championship, League One, League Two, Scottish FA Cup, Scottish League Cup, selected Challenge Cup); Champions League; Europa League; French Ligue 1; Spanish Liga BBVA; German Bundesliga; Dutch Eredivisie; Italian Serie A; Swedish Allsvenskan; MLS; World Cup 2018 Qualifiers

Opinion

A fairly standard offer although slightly better than BetVictor’s similar offer.  Most bookmakers are offering acca insurance and there are plenty of adverts boasting, it would be better if all leagues were covered (why aren’t they?!), but with the average stake wagered on accas of this size being lower than the £25 refund, it is a decent incentive to place the bet here.
