Ladbrokes, a company which dates back to 1886, is a regular sight on many British High Streets and has been a pioneer in the gambling industry ever since.
In addition to their bricks-and-mortar betting shops, Ladbrokes has quite a presence in online gambling with an online sportsbook, online bingo, online poker and an online casino. Ladbrokes Casino has been going since 2000 and has grown and developed strongly since.
The casino, which is licensed in Gibraltar features over 350 games, with new additions all the time. With such a range of gambling products, the company has mastered the art of integrating each one and online casino players are able to withdraw funds from their casino account in any Ladbrokes branch on the high street.
When it comes to the live casino, Ladbrokes have become one of the best at offering bonuses tailored specifically to their live dealer games. Weekly live casino bonuses and a first deposit live casino bonus are all available which is somewhat of a rarity.
The live blackjack tables at Ladbrokes are split into three categories. The first of which is the standard blackjack tables, there are six in total and they all have a betting limit of £2,500. Then there are three dedicated Ladbrokes tables. The first has a betting limit of £1,250, the second of £2,500 and the third of £5,000. There are seven VIP Live Blackjack tables and a Platinum VIP table which all have limits of £5,000. This gives players a choice of 17 live dealers to choose from.
As blackjack tables have limited seating, it can become quite difficult to find a place. Ladbrokes have alleviated this slightly by adding an extra table during peak times and also showing the number of free places at each table in the live blackjack lobby.
Ladbrokes have focused their live dealer games on quality and variety. To do this, they utilise the services of Evolution Gaming and offer three games, live baccarat, live blackjack and live roulette.
There are two live baccarat tables. The standard table, with a betting limit of £1,000 and the VIP table, which has a limit of £10,000. For live roulette, the selection is slightly and more varied. There are seven tables and each is distinct. The auto roulette table has the lowest betting limit at £10,000.
There’s Swedish Roulette, with a Swedish dealer and Sports Roulette, filmed in a replica sports news studio, with a betting limit of £20,000. The standard Live Roulette table features a betting maximum of £40,000 and although this may seem sufficiently high, Ladbrokes offer a betting maximum of £100,000 on the London Roulette (with British dealers), French Roulette and of course the VIP Roulette.
Ladbrokes Casino’s standard welcome bonus is a 100% offer of up to £500, but none of the live dealer games constitutes part of this. However, Ladbrokes look after all of their customers and provide bonuses especially for live casino users.
The first is the Live Dealer New Player Bonus where you get a 100% deposit match of up to £50 with just 15x wagering requirements – a very generous offer! More regular bonuses include the Live Casino Reload bonus which is available on Mondays and offers a 100% match bonus of £20 for live blackjack and live roulette players with wagering requirements of 40x. Ladbrokes don’t just end there with bonuses, there are regular themed bonuses too. These typically occur on throughout the year during various festive periods.
While other live casinos often just use dealers from the same area and film in the same studio, Ladbrokes Casino likes to mix things up. As well as the usual Latvian beauties there are Swedish dealers and UK dealers for the Swedish Live Roulette and London Live Roulette respectively.
Irrespective of where they’re from, all of the dealers are sharply attired, professional and friendly. Punters are allowed to interact with the dealers and this adds a nice touch to the live dealer games, making it more like games in land based casinos. Of all the dealers, the live blackjack dealers tend to be the chattiest and usually personally welcome every new user to the table.
