Another UK bookmaker that joined the online gaming bandwagon back in early 2000, Ladbrokes is now established as an industry leader which is not surprising given that the company has been offering bets since 1886. With a base in the UK and an annual income of over £1 billion, Ladbrokes has used its geographical location and financial might to become a major force in three online gaming markets: casino, poker and sports betting.
However, while the company's casino and poker platforms are well-respected, their reputation pales in comparison to the sports betting axis. Thanks to an array of options, including football, horse racing, boxing and tennis betting, and a long-standing reputation within the gambling community, Ladbrokes Sports has become the virtual home for a number of professional punters. In fact, such is the popularity of Ladbrokes Sports that it's ranked within the UK's top 250 websites, according Alexa's traffic rankings.

Similar to other well-established online sportsbooks, Ladbrokes Sports has broken down its platform into three distinct areas: "sports", "in-play" and "virtual sports".
Instead of merging the trio of betting options and placing them into a single platform, the designers have sectioned them out in order to give each genre as much scope as possible. For some users this may seem like an unnecessary distinction to make. However, the partition is actually one that works well as it makes it possible for more features to be added to each page.
The Sports Betting Menu
One of the most attractive aspects of Ladbrokes Sports is its betting limits. Regardless of whether you want to ante-up on football, horse racing or something more exotic such as MMA or speedway, Ladbrokes allows you to do some from as little £0.10. By giving punters the option to ante-up for such small stakes, it makes Ladbrokes a much more accessible platform for everyone. Indeed, unlike some sites that insist on minimum bets of £1+, Ladbrokes is literally open to anyone (providing they are over 18).
To complement this desire to serve as many customers as possible, Ladbrokes is also available in 21 languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Turkish, Swedish and Greek. Adopting this polyglottal approach is yet another reason why Ladbrokes is now able to attract the full demographic of punters to its platform.
Ladbrokes mobile app
Completing Ladbrokes impressive selection of software, the designers have spent time perfecting a dedicated mobile betting app that's capable of taking all manner of wagers, including in-play bets. As experienced punters will know, a major part of any successful sports betting strategy is timing and Ladbrokes' mobile app is designed to make your betting experience as smooth as possible. Indeed, by allowing punters to capitalise in-play bets while they are on the move, it helps to make the system more lucrative and, therefore, punters more profitable.
