Ladbrokes Mobile App Review
If you’re unfamiliar with Ladbrokes, you’re certainly missing out. Ladbrokes is the international leader in the betting world, and offers users a unique, exciting, and hassle-free experience to punting on the global betting market. In Australia specifically, Ladbrokes is one of the top innovative racing and sport betting companies.
When Ladbroke entered the Australian betting market in 2013, it launched a desktop website that primarily works by opening up space for users to make bets on various racing and sport events. The promise of the site is that it is simple to use: you login, fill out your basic information, navigate markets, and place your bet(s).
About Ladbrokes Mobile App
With the launch of the Ladbrokes mobile app, the company is now bringing mobile betting literally to your pocket.The app – which many have lauded as the leading mobile betting app currently available to punters – is free to download, easy to operate, and makes betting on the go easier than ever.
How to Download
In either route, mobile betting is just a few clicks away, and the process is completely free. The mobile app is free to download, and account registration with Ladbrokes is at the low-low price of zero dollars. Android users can download the app from Google Play, whereas Apple users can utilize the App Store.
Yet, it is important to point out that the Ladbrokes mobile app is currently only available on Apple and Android devices (including phones and tablets). If you have a Windows phone, you can still go to the Ladbrokes mobile website, but you won’t have the option to download the app.
Pros of the Ladbrokes Mobile App
Everybody likes to feel special, right? Ladbrokes capitalizes off of our inherent nature to feel unique with the introduction of two products: “Pick Your Own Odds,” “Best of the Best,” and “Favourite vs. Field.”
Pick Your Own Odds is for horse racing punters. The product allows you to pick the winning margin for the horse you’re betting on, and at every margin, the product will increase the odds in your favor.
Best of the Best is the company’s most useful product, because it brings you more money with your winnings. So, in addition to getting quick payments, the Best of the Best product makes it so that you get a payout that is equal to the highest winnings (either “Best Tote” or “To Fluctuation”).
Like Pick Your Own Odds, Favourite vs. Field is for punters in the horse racing world. This product lets you click on your favorite horse and easily place your bet.
Accessibility and Navigation
Sure, the Ladbroke’s full website is functional and simple to navigate, but the mobile app is even more so. The sleek design of the app makes it so that users aren’t overwhelmed with a lot of information. Each screen on the app places information in squares or boxes, and is color coded based on the category the pane will navigate users to.
Because of the simple layout and design, the app is lightning speed. Mobile betting with the Ladbroke’s mobile app is superiorly fast. In just a few taps, users can review the market and make bets in a safe and reliable environment.
Speaking of easy access, Ladbroke’s mobile app really lets users do everything:
- Place bets on every sport and racing market available on the full Ladbrokes website
- Look at your personal betting history
- Receive notifications
- Participate in exclusive deals and promotions
- Review your VISA Ladbrokes Debit Card statements
- Access racing products (several of which are described above)
The best part: all of these features are in the palm of your hand.
The Official Verdict: Website vs. Mobile App
Perhaps the most common issue that mobile owners face when choosing to download an app is whether or not an app is truly all it is talked up to be. Sometimes, users are shortchanged with a company’s mobile app, which may not offer all of the same features as the full website.
However, users should have no worries when using the Ladbrokes mobile app instead of the company’s website. This mobile app indeed lives up to the full functionality of the Ladbrokes desktop website.
Whereas other betting apps might require you to open new accounts, the Ladbrokes app software allows you full access to your complete Ladbrokes account. Likewise, first-time users who download the app will have complete access to their account on the full Australian Ladbrokes website.
As for the Ladbroke’s mobile website, when you navigate to the website from a mobile device, you get the same exact setup as the mobile app. This is ideal for a couple of reasons, but it really allows you to test the app before downloading the app. (Also of note: the speed of the mobile website obviously depends on your internet connection.)
Current Betting Offers
What’s more is that the Ladbrokes mobile app even offers special features that aren’t even available on the full desktop website. One of our favorite features is the exclusive mobile betting promos.
The app features regular mobile promotions, typically in the form of a weekly free bet. For instance, new users can open an account through the mobile app and are rewarded with a free bet bonus valued up to $250.
