Ladbrokes Review The latest edition of the Ladbrokes app is packed full of features, such as Texas Hold'em cash tables, Multi-Tabling, fast fold poker tables, mobile bonuses and the ability to be able to chat with other players. The deposit bonus is also about as good as you are going to get. They actually offer a whopping 200% bonus on your first deposit into the Ladbrokes Poker room which can be redeemed by playing poker on your mobile. The bonus is worth up to £1,200 which means.
DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS & BONUS
The welcome bonus is actually a 200% match on your first deposit of up to £1,200. It’s one of the biggest in the industry and not all that tough to clear. You will simply need to make a deposit of £10 or more to qualify and then you get 90 days in which to clear the full amount. Your bonus will hit your account in £5 increments and these will be released every time you hit 240 Status points that are earned as you play.
INTERFACE & FEATURES
The first thing that might strike you, as it did us, is the limited options in terms of games that are on offer. You’ll see that you can play cash tables and speed games, but the lack of tournaments or sit and go’s are really a big miss on the app. The majority of their competitors are all offering these types of games along side both speed and cash games and the fact that Ladbrokes had failed to include these were a bit of an issue. Dig a little bit deeper and you’ll find that only Texas Hold’em is on offer with no Omaha or mixed games added at all. Again, not a huge issue as Texas Hold’em will be number one choice for most, but in terms of variety of games, the app does feel as though it’s lacking somewhat.
The home screen will allow you to access your profile and also be able to get in touch with Ladbrokes should you have any issues. You can do this by clicking the menu button in the top left corner to show the drop down menu for your options.
The rest of the lobby is made up of simply being able to select your game type. This will include headings such as game type, bet type, currency, stakes and table size. The ability to play in both EUR and GBP is a nice feature and you will find that stakes range from 1¢/2¢ up to €2/€4 games.
The number of players at the tables at any one time is probably Ladbrokes’ biggest selling point. The lower stakes games are packed full of players and there will likely never be a time where you can’t get a game. As you move up through the stakes the games do filter out a little, but still, you should be able to grab a game of some sort around the clock. Ladbrokes also include heads up, 6 max and full ring tables, giving you a decent choice of games.
TABLE MODE & COMPETITION
The standard at Ladbrokes is actually pretty soft on the whole, which is mainly due to the influx in Scandinavian and Euro players over the years. The lower stakes will be the standard minefield games but we found that even as you progress through the stakes you should be able to find pretty juicy games. One of the best things about the app is it allows you to view tables before you sit down, so if you are heavy into table selection, then this now becomes a viable option at Ladbrokes.
Ladbrokes Poker Mobile Game
The downside of the app has to be in the lack of tournament games. They are pretty much a given with most major mobile poker rooms these games and their lack of inclusion is felt. That’s pretty much all there is to be glum about though and we can highly recommend what’s been one of the best apps we have reviewed this year!
To use the Ladbrokes poker mobile app, you will need to be a Ladbrokes customer. The best way to sign up at Ladbrokes is via the desktop version of their site, which you can visit at Ladbrokes.com. To sign-up, click on the green 'join' button in the top right-hand corner of the site. This will open up a new window in which you can fill in all your personal information. Once you've compete the registration, you can click on the 'Create Account' button to complete your registration.
Note, that if you have a PayPal account, you can skip the registration process at Ladbrokes and instead register via the information that's associated with your PayPal account, saving you a little bit of time.
iOS Devices: There are two ways of obtaining the Ladbrokes poker mobile app for your iPhone or iPad. You can either visit the 'Mobile' section of the Ladbrokes page where you will find a QR code that you can scan in to start the download, or you can visit the iOS App Store and search for the app there.
The app requires iOS 5 or later, and has been optimised for use on iPhones, iPads and the iPod touch.
Android Devices: First of all, you need to ignore the advice given on the mobile page that says the app is available at the 'Android Market' – Google Play does not permit apps that allow real money gambling to be hosted there.
You can either visit the desktop version of the Ladbrokes poker mobile app and scan a QR code, or a much easier way is to visit the Ladbrokes mobile site on your device and click on the 'poker' link. This will take you through to a further page where you can download the Android app as an apk file. Once downloaded you will then be able to install the app onto your mobile device.
As Ladbrokes is part of the popular iPoker network, the software has been developed by Playtech. It's an HTML5-based app, which means it offers maximum compatibility with all types of iOS and Android mobile devices.
The major disappointment with the app is that you can only play at cash tables. There are no Sit & Go or single or multi-table tournaments available.
The lobby is extremely easy to use, and you'll be able to both see and select from a decent range of tables with stakes from micro to high-roller limits.
The layout of the tables via the app will be familiar to anyone who has played at a Playtech-powered mobile poker app before, even down to the 'cartoon-style' avatars that are easily recognised from both desktop and mobile Playtech poker sites. The tables are nicely uncluttered, and the controls are very easy to use. Play is smooth and the app is nicely responsive – connection hiccups seem rare.
You can easily play Speed Poker – Ladbrokes version of fast-fold poker – via the app.
BONUSES & PROMOTIONS
To kick off your poker career at Ladbrokes, the site offers you a massive potential 200 percent deposit bonus that could be worth up to £1,200.
Once awarded, this bonus is then held and released in chunks of $5 or €5 each time you earn 170 'Status Poker Points' or SPPs if your account is in USD, or 240 SPPs if your account is Euros.
You can earn SPPs by playing in tournaments at Ladbrokes. For every €1 you spend in tournament fees, you receive 14 SPPs, or 16 SPPs for every £1 you spend (Note: this confusing 'mix and match' approach to currencies is taken directly from Ladbrokes' promotion pages and is not a fault with this review!).
Players have three months from the time they open their Ladbrokes poker account to convert as much of their bonus as they can, else the bonus money is forfeited.
Once you're a Ladbrokes poker player you can enjoy the frequent promotions that Ladbrokes offer, such as generous freerolls and tournaments where the prize fund can reach a stellar €100,000.
