This English company is one of the oldest bookmakers in the World, first steps were set in 1886 at Ladbroke Hall where few years later the Ladbrokes name and the company was established. Today, Ladbrokes is one of the biggest bookmakers in the UK and World, owning over 2700 retail betting shops across the UK, Belgium, Ireland and Spain. Surely when to look for a trustworthy betting company, the Ladbrokes definitely is the right choice where it's based on it's reputation, years of experience and guaranteed payouts but does it do so well in betting offer? Lets examine a little bit and see how it goes compare to other online bookmakers.
Sports Betting Offer
As for European bookie lets focus on the football-soccer leagues and matches first. The UK offer looks very good, most divisions are covered well for example Premiership. League one and two, Championship, FA Cup. The odds margin settle between 5% premiership, Championship and 7-8% for league one and two.
Ladbrokes is international bookmakers with good offer for soccer – main leagues and international cups but while checking betting list for unpopular tournaments it looks not as good as in other large companies. In non popular countries it covers only first leagues. The betting margin set between 9 and even 12% like for an example in Austrian Bundesliga.
Ladbrokes as befits to an UK bookmaker has very good offer for racing sports like horses or Greyhounds. It covers all the minor trucks in the UK or Australia and the prices are competitive.
Ladbrokes is very likely to ban Your account for some reasons, sometimes banning You from using fixed odds and sometimes when your betting limits are high and You start to win too much, but it's normal. There are no companies over there to have players who actually earn money by betting. Bookmakers do like recreational players so if You start beating them they shut You down. I'm not talking about Ladbrokes here but this should be a topic to another story so backing to the Ladbrokes review.
What about sports like tennis, ice hockey or USA sport like Baseball or American Football. Here we have an average offer with average margin set up. With tennis to around 6.5% margin doesn't look so bad, should say it a standard figues and they are. However Ice hockey is very diverse as for Swedish tournaments the odds look quite good osculating to around 6-8% but for Russian and Czech may be between 10 and up to 14%.
IN MY OPINION: It's a corporate bookmaker with standard offer but willing to pay out to You every amount of money in time. It is created for recreational players and those who wins too much maybe restricted to some markets or even blocked from betting. Proffesional players are up in the bookmaker arms. The margin set to standard figures for minor international tournaments but while having less besieged markets then margin is lowered so much.
My grade: C+
