Ladbrokes Poker review

Ladbrokes Poker is part of the biggest gaming brand in the UK. Starting out as a bookmaker many moons ago, Ladbrokes now commands a huge amount of gambling activity online. It’s not just a brand name though, as you will discover in this review, there is a lot more that the Lads has to offer.

Ladbrokes Poker runs on Microgaming software and comes in a download or an instant play (Internet Explorer only) version, depending on your preference. The poker site boasts some of the highest levels of traffic and you will regularly find players waiting to play at tables. Ladbrokes Poker is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and licenced in Gibraltar.

Gameplay - 8/10

Ladbrokes Poker has a good selection a poker games available to play including Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 card stud, 5 card stud. The games vary between No-Limit, Pot-Limit and Bet-Limit as you would expect. At the time of the review there were 2600 table players and nearly 16000 tournament players during peak times, making it the most popular poker room in Europe!

Ladbrokes Poker has added a 3D poker room version, to give more life to players and make games more interesting. Players can still choose to play in the more classical layout if they choose to.

One of the best features at Ladbrokes Poker is the tournament play, with freerolls, Sit and Go and Multi-Table Tournaments being held round the clock. This is backed up by Ladbrokes televised “Poker Millions tour”, giving players a chance to play in the WSOP in the later rounds.

Promos - 8/10

Ladbrokes Poker is offering a 100% matched welcome bonus up to £800 when joining the site with a minimum deposit of £5.  Players can also trade in their “players points” accumulated whilst playing for cash or entry to special tournaments. As an added bonus, during the month of February you can get a Flash Reload bonus of £1.50 for every 100 points you earn during this time.

A big Bad-Beat progressive jackpot is up for grabs for players who have a losing hand containing at least Aces full of Tens. There are terms that apply, but if the cards go your way you could be picking up a five-figure bonus.

Transactions - 8.5/10

There are a huge selection of payment methods available, including all major Debit/Credit cards and money transfer services. Ladbrokes Poker also accepts Paypal, which is a huge benefit as most gaming sites don’t have this option. Withdrawals can be easily be made from the site by accessing “my account” and requesting a transfer of funds to your requested account.

Ladbrokes Poker is part of Ladbrokes Plc, who are a member of IBAS (Independent Betting Arbitration Service). Therefore you can be assured that if you have a dispute it will be resolved fairly.

Customer Service - 7.5/10

The customer support at Ladbrokes Poker is very good with a number of options available for communicating with the Ladbrokes team. Most enquiries we sent by email were swiftly dealt with, usually within an hour. There is also a free customer support phone number if you are calling from the UK. This is normally quick to get through, but can get busy at peak times like Saturday nights. There is a self help section, which is kind of like a F.A.Q’s page, for those with the patience to look through and hopefully find what they need.
