For punters that have been around a while, the name bookmaker.com will sound familiar. In 2013, the company was bought out by UK based sports betting giant Ladbrokes. Licenced in the Australian Northern territories, Ladbrokes has quickly become one of the leading online sportsbook agencies in New Zealand and Australia.
With a focus on racing betting, Ladbrokes has retained the look and feel of bookmaker.com with a simple betting interface, live bets, a huge range of betting markets and live streams of the biggest horseraces.
Ladbrokes Betting Page
In keeping with the tradition of bookmaker.com, Ladbrokes offers a simple, easy-to-use betting website that punters have come to know and love. At the top of the main page, punters will find links to live betting, sports markets, player bets, promotions, how to bet and the blog page.
The large central area displays the latest betting promotions with graphic displays of events coming up next. On the right-hand side of the page, the site includes quick links to their betting promotions, Ladbrokes games, and live racing streams.
Racing and Sports markets
The main betting markets are all featured on the left-hand side of the page with live betting at the top, quick picks underneath and the various sports betting categories extending down the full length of the page. While their focus may be on racing, Ladbrokes offers a huge range of sports betting markets including cricket betting, rugby, AFL, soccer, golf and tennis betting to name a few. They also offer novelty betting, entertainment betting and election betting. Clicking on any of the categories will bring up the events available for betting.
In addition to their online website, Ladbrokes offers a mobile betting app that can be downloaded and installed on all leading iOS and Android devices. From the mobile app, punters can access the latest sports news, place bets and even steam live races. The app can be downloaded directly from the main site or found on the app store or Google Play.
When it comes to banking, Ladbrokes offers a wide range of deposit and withdrawal options. Punters can make secure, fast deposits by credit card, by local bank transfer, by debit card or by web-wallet payments. Punters can also apply for a Ladbrokes card which can be used to place bets and withdraw winnings from any ATM in the country.
As one of the leading sports books in the country, Ladbrokes uses state of the art 2048-bit SSL encryption technology on their mobile platform and online betting site. This ensures that all financial transaction, personal information and wagers remain 100% secure at all times.
When it comes to betting promotions, Ladbrokes offers extremely lucrative sign-up offers as well as free bets and promotions. Punters who make their very first deposit will be rewarded with a cash match bonus that can be used straight away. Long time members can also look forward to weekly deals, tipping competitions and exclusive promotions.
If punters run into any issues with their account or placing a bet, Ladbrokes offers a comprehensive FAQ section with answers to all the most popular questions. For more pressing matters, punters can get hold of the site directly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The customer support team can be contacted by email, via their live chat facility or directly on the telephone.
