Ladbrokes Casino is the online casino arm of the respected UK betting business which was established way back in 1886 as a commission agent for horses trained at Ladbroke Hall in Worcestershire. Ladbrokes offers the complete online gambling package under one virtual roof - casino, sports betting, poker, bingo, financial spread betting and lotteries. It is operated by Ladbrokes Plc and is licensed and regulated under the jurisdiction of Gibraltar.
Ladbrokes Casino software
The games at Ladbrokes Casino are provided by well known online casino software developers Playtech, IGT, Net Entertainment and Barcrest, among others. This means that you will have access to over 450 games, with more added each month. Its safe to say you will probably never play them all, such is the choice. A Playtech-only casino can be downloaded and installed on Windows PCs, or you can try the flash-powered instant play version of the software right inside your browser, which provides access to a vastly bigger variety of games.
There are hundreds of slots and fruit machines to choose from, and several progressive jackpots to aim for. The progressive jackpots are linked to the Playtech network so that means that they increase with players contributing to them across almost all the different Playtech casinos on the internet. This adds up to big jackpots that are won regularly. Jackpots such as Beach Life, Monty Python's Spamalot, Gladiator, and Gold Rally often sit in million pound plus territory.
In addition to the slot machines, there is a comprehensive selection of traditional casino table games such as blackjack, roulette, craps, baccarat, Caribbean Stud, Three Card Poker, Pai Gow Poker, Sic Bo, and many many more. Video Poker enthusiasts are catered for too, with many variations on offer including Jacks or Better and Deuces Wild, and all are available in single or multi-hand "power poker" modes.
If that isn't enough, Ladbrokes offers live dealer blackjack, roulette, and baccarat, along with bingo, poker and sports betting, and many of the casion games are also playable on your mobile phone.
Customer Support and Payment Options
The customer support service of Ladbrokes is, as you would expect from a company with this reputation, top of the line. The languages spoken are many and varied (see right), and support is available 24/7 via email, phone, or live text chat. Ladbrokes also offers players the ability to play in a large number of currencies beyond the standard USD, GBP, or Euros, and the payment options are many (again see right).
Withdrawals at Ladbrokes are very quick. Once you have your identity verified and your account approved you can expect to receive electronic wallet withdrawals within 24 hours. Befitting a company of this stature there are no tiny monthly or weekly withdrawal limitations like we see at so many other casinos these days.
Since the casino's change over from Microgaming to Playtech software in 2014, it seems that Ladbrokes must have changed its marketing team too, and the casino is now way too aggressive in their communication. Unless you enjoy receiving multiple daily emails with marketing messages and offers, not to mention text messages to your phone, I highly recommend that you track down the setting in your account that opts you out of receiving the torrent of marketing from Ladbrokes. Once done, you won't receive it any more.
