Already a trusted and well-known name, Ladbrokes has been around for many years as a well-established British bookmaker, with many land-based betting offices. Now, as they take their place among the top online poker rooms, we see them continue to deliver a high quality product to its clients.
The software, developed by Microgaming, is smooth and easy to use though not as impressive as most others out there. The graphics are not as detailed and elaborate as other online poker rooms yet they are clean, clear and more than suitable for a good old-fashioned game of poker. What they’re lacking in eye-catching graphics, they make up for in other areas of the site. There are 3 table size options, which is a rare feature of online poker rooms, usually there are 2 but 3 is a bonus feature. There is a also player notes, hand history and player stats available. The lobby is easy and simple to navigate with maybe a little on the small size, but perfectly usable buttons.
Even with the US player ban imposed, Ladbrokes Poker boasts a high amount of player traffic. Real-money player statistics as of April 2008 show 1,400 ring-game players at peak hours and 5,000 tournament players at peak hours.
One unique feature of this site is that, even though the majority of ring traffic is in the Texas hold ‘em rooms, there is a lot of action going on within the other game type rooms. These include Omaha Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Five-Card Draw and Five-Card Stud ranging from the No-Limit to Pot-Limit and Fixed-Limit levels.
The level of play is steady and respectable. The turbo tables are an excellent feature for players who want to play fast and strong, sometimes seeing more than 120 hands per hour.
Ladbrokes Poker offers 100% signup bonus upto £1250 for new poker players.
Ladbrokes Poker hosts many tournaments with buy-ins from as low as $1. The tournaments always have a great turn and play is usually somewhat loose and fast.
Ladbrokes Poker also runs many satellites and qualifiers for bigger tourneys and even live game competitions. They also offer some qualifiers to big live events, like recently, for the Monte Carlo Millions and the European Poker Tour.
For the second year running, Ladbrokes Poker also has been approved to offer satellites for the World Series of Poker, and as the official qualifying site, Ladbrokes will send over 100 players to the 2008 Main Event. There is an attractive reload bonus, refer a friend bonus and loyalty scheme. One of the most striking promotions on Ladbrokes is the introduction of their 'Ladbrokes Europe Offline Tour of Poker' (LEOTP) where you will have the chance to play to win one of their amazing offline Europe tour packages valued at over $9,000!
Ladbrokes has found a niche in the market of online poker rooms and will remain steadily fixed in the top rankings with its reliability and renowned customer service and game play.
