They are best known for its sportsbook operation (you’ve probably seen the adverts with Ray Winstone) but bet365 is also home to a poker room and an extensive online casino. It comes with a selection of table games such as roulette and blackjack and plenty of slots, including branded and progressive jackpot titles.
Ladbrokes is one of the oldest and best known gambling companies in the UK. Founded in the 1950s, it’s come a long way from the spit and sawdust betting shop and now operates a full suite of online sports betting, poker and casino game products.
Of chief interest to us of course is its slots offering. There are certainly plenty to choose from with a catalogue of hundreds of titles available. They include a variety of TV and movie branded titles such as Pink Panther and Monty Python’s Spamalot as well as a bumper offering of Marvel slots. Big money hunters are well catered for too with a decent range of progressive jackpot titles available. The progressive on offer in Jackpot Giant for example, currently stands at a whopping £2.8m!
The Ladbrokes casino is powered by Playtech technology so expect sleek gameplay and a quality selection of slots. There’s no need to download anything either as all games can be played in your desktop browser. If you’re a mobile or tablet user, there are app specially designed for iPhone, iPad and Android powered devices.
New players at Ladbrokes Casino can take advantage of a generous 100% first deposit bonus offer up to £500.
There are plenty of choices available if you need to contact customer service. The quickest and easiest way to get in touch is via the Live Chat – this online service operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Just click on the speech bubble tab at the right of the screen and you’ll be connected to an operator.
If you’d prefer to talk rather than type then there is a freephone telephone number. Lines are manned around the clock so you should be able to get your query sorted regardless of whether it’s first thing in the morning or last thing at night.
You can also email any queries you may have – there are 3 specific addresses depending on whether you have a general query or whether it relates to promotions, security or finance. They can all be found by clicking on the help tab then contact us. For general queries, just click on the envelope tab on the right of the screen.
Ladbrokes also offers an extensive help section which deals with many of the most common queries relating to bonuses, account details and deposits and withdrawals. Whichever option you prefer, you should have to wait long to get in touch with Ladbrokes HQ.
There are plenty of ways you can deposit money to your Ladbrokes Casino account including debit cards, money transfer wallets such as Skrill, NETeller and PayPal and prepay services like Paysafecard. Transfers via Western Union and directly via your bank account are also possible but will take a little longer than the other methods which are instant.
You can also deposit and withdraw via high street Ladbrokes betting shops – walk into your local Ladbrokes shop with your customer ID with the amount you want to deposit. Alternatively, provide your account ID/username and passport in the shop to withdraw cash – there’s a £5,000 daily limit though.
In terms of withdrawals, it’s a minimum of £10 with the wallet sites. They are the quickest option, with payouts processed from 6 hours. Western Union and bank transfers are 1-5 days with debit cards withdrawals, which have a £5 minimum, completed in 1 to 3 days. Withdrawals to betting shops are also possible.
There are no fees for deposits or withdrawals using any format which is good and they offer weekend cashouts.

If its high variance jackpot offerings you’re after then you won’t be disappointed – the likes of Sultan’s Gold, Gladiator, White King and Desert Treasure II offer series coinage. Ladbrokes scores particularly well on branded content – there’s a whole range of Marvel-branded superhero slots such as Iron Man 3, Thor The Mighty Avenger, The Incredible Hulk and, my favourite, The Avengers.
It also has deals with Universal Pictures and MGM so if you like the movie genre you’ll find plenty on offer. I would recommend Cowboys & Aliens, The Mummy, The Sopranos and Rocky. There’s a search option too making it easy to locate your favourite titles.
