Ladbrokes Sportsbook is trusted, secure, has a superb range of markets, and we have an exclusive sign-up bonus for you to get your betting hands on!
Ladbrokes are one of the oldest bookmaking firms in the UK, and former head honcho Cyril Stein once revealed that when she was a Princess, Queen Elizabeth used to have an account!
We are not sure if the current monarch is a regular visitor to Sportsbook Guardian, but hope that if she is she will be taking advantage of our great offers. Many stories can be told about Cyril Stein but we’re here to talk about Ladbrokes and why you should start betting with them.

Ladbrokes rose to the top of the pile in sports betting between the 1960′s and 1990′s, though it is an open industry secret that they missed the boat a little with online sports betting, yet at the time of this review under new CEO Richard Glynn massive waves are being made to once again reach the summit.
I was very impressed by the range of markets that Ladbrokes have, and in football they are competing very credibly with Sportingbet and Bet365 in the depth of in-play betting options.
Ladbrokes odds compilers have a very international approach, and you can get 4-6 betting markets for soccer leagues in Argentina, Romania, and Greece. At present the betting is largely focused on the upper leagues for these countries, but the market offerings are still comprehensive. It will be interesting to watch if for these leagues Ladbrokes expand beyond the usual match odds, correct score, half time/full time and Asian Handicaps.
Asides from football, their sports betting listings are comprehensive; obviously they are big on racing, but cover the full spectrum of sports, as well as virtual betting, so for you sports fanatics out there you’ll be sure to find a sport to bet on besides the standard ones.
For you punters on the move their iPhone app offers great opportunities to bet on the hop. When I tested the mobile app I found it simple to use, and liked that the upcoming markets were always displayed prominently in the navigation menu.
The sign up process for sports betting (and indeed other Ladbrokes’ products) is straight forward, and if you run into any issues they have a live-chat or telephone customer support on hand to help. I tested the live chat, and the response time was very quick. Their support is open 24/7 by telephone, live chat, and of course email so you’ll have constant support across three fronts if you ever get into trouble.
Minimum deposit is £5, and minimum bet is 10p (for you high rollers!), whilst the maximum bet available size is always displayed on the bet slip.
The team at Sportsbook Guardian likes Ladbrokes Sportsbook, I know I’m impressed by the range of markets, for you value seeking punters it is definitely worth setting up an account. This is definitely an appealing sportsbook and the first one I joined when I was getting started, from it user friendly simplicity and great range of sports on offer so if you’re just starting out as a punter or are a veteran in the betting scene Ladbrokes is a great choice.
And just to make sure you get the most out of your punting Sportsbook Guardian have an exclusive sign up bonuses for Ladbrokes, so get involved!

Do Ladbrokes give best odds SP offer like Bet365? I have only bet with them in their shop so am reviewing 4 stars on the shop only.
Damnit! When I first signed up they only offered a £25 bonus. I think... in any case it definitely wasn't £50. They're pretty unremarkable anyway, haven't used them in months. And their android app kept crashing, actually it wouldn't even let me sign iin from what I remember.
