Ladbrokes are one of the oldest and biggest bookmakers in the world. They seem to have been around forever and have developed from solely high street shops, to the online powerhouses that they are today. The site itself has a unique feel to it, which you expect from such a massive bookmaker. We really like sites that stand out from the crowd and this is certainly one of them.

You dive straight into the betting action from their homepage and the integration of their new, interactive betting bar across the top looks superb. From the navigation bar you can click between four markets that are taking place at that specific time. Sometimes they do include any special promotions as well, which is a great way to keep on top of what’s going on with the site. The trademark red and white corporate colours are used throughout the site and give it a real identity.

We really like how the Ladbrokes site doesn’t bombard you with markets from the off. Many markets are there just to appease a minority of bettors, which is more than fine, but the majority of bettors will be concentrating on the more popular betting markets such as football, horse racing, tennis, golf and cricket. That being said you can easily click the ‘All Sports’ button for a drop down menu of a staggering amount of smaller markets, which is ideal for a huge array of bettors.

The integration of a variety of betting tools is one of the main reasons the bigger sites do so well. No longer are they simply there to make your bets with, but the information included offers punters a chance to find better value in their bets and work more strategically to find out which markets offer the best odds and value. These include features such as Racing Form, Turftrax form, Raceclub virtual owner, Football Form Lab, Stats Centre, and match centre, to name but a few.

The Ladbrokes site was never going to be short of brilliant. You don’t get the amount of punters through the door on a daily basis that they do into a poor a site. The history and prestige which they have earned within the industry is a credit to their site. We usually like to use this section of our reviews to find a few faults in any given site to make our readers aware, but to be honest we have struggled to do so with Ladbrokes. It’s as close to perfect as you are going to get from a betting site and its very obvious why so many millions are already registered with Ladbrokes.

First stop

Ladbrokes were one of the first bookies I signed up with, and is the place I turn to first when I want to place a bet. Admittedly other sites often have marginally better odds, but I'm too lazy to go looking and stick with what I know.

The promotions are ok and there are occasional offers on sports plus deals in the casino and poker room. For example, I recently received a free £10 bonus in my account to play poker. Lost it pretty quickly, but the gesture was appreciated.

I also like being able to deposit with paypal.
