Ladbrokes are a long-established player in the betting industry and there is plenty to like about the bookmaker fondly known as the Magic Sign. They have made great strides with their website so that it’s now quick and user-friendly and customers love betting with such a big and popular brand.

We recommend Ladbrokes for several reasons, with the bookmaker offering to refund losing Euro 2012 outright bets if England win the tournament and also issuing £5 bonuses whenever your Top Goalscorer finds the net.

You can now enjoy a range of money back specials across lots of sports and these offers are prominently advertised on the Ladbrokes homepage. The Magic Sign also offer best odds guaranteed for several sporting events.

When you sign-up to Ladbrokes you are asked on the sign-up form whether you have a Ladbrokes Promotion Code or RAF/ID. Make sure you enter the MAXIMUMBONUS code and you will qualify for an exclusive £50 free bet!

Similarly, you can text MAX to 86131 and claim a free £75 bet on your mobile.

Ladbrokes are among the biggest bookmakers in the world and one of the most reputable brands in the betting industry. In the UK, Ladbrokes have over 2,000 betting shops and are listed on the FTSE 100 Index. The company dates back to the 19th century, although the firm as we know it started in 1961 when a small number of betting shops were established in southern England.

They have now grown to the extent where they are major players in territories all over the world and that’s why you will find their website available in 25 different languages.

Odds and Markets

The ‘Magic Sign’ have competitive odds but also rely on brand and quality of service to bring in and retain customers. That said, this is an area which is starting to improve with one-day promotions where they might offer the best prices on every Champions League team on the outright market. While it is rare that Ladbrokes will be best price about a particular player, team or horse, you can guarantee a fast pay-out if your selection wins. It’s fair to say that, due to the huge UK shop presence, their racing product is superior to most of their competitors.

Football punters will be satisfied with the wide range of markets on the big matches, while they have a dynamic In-Play product for betting on football, cricket, tennis and rugby. They cater for a wide range of less-popular sports and also get a gold star for their volume of special markets. 

Ladbrokes also offer a wide range of Euro 2012 money back specials, which means that losing bets will be regularly refunded on the European Championship. They might typically offer to refund losing First Goalscorer bets if a particular player finds the net during a game.


The website has improved greatly in recent years and is now not only one of the quickest in the industry but also has much better navigation when it comes to finding your bet. Ladbrokes highlight the top six daily sporting events on their homepage and also tend to have a football coupon of available sports available to place quick wagers.

The Live In-Play betting opportunities are also featured on the homepage, although the live streaming that’s available could be displayed more prominently (scroll down to see the Ladbrokes TV banner). Placing a bet is a nice straightforward business and you will usually get paid winning to your bank account within 48 hours of making a withdrawal.

Customer Service

Customer service is 24/7 and is very dependable, with staff very quick to respond to customer email queries. There is a comprehensive Help section which means you might find a solution to your query without contacting a member of staff. Otherwise, they are available by email or telephone to respond to your query.
