Ladbrokes is a household name already etched in UK betting history. The brand has a presence both offline through betting outlets and online – covering everything from casino to poker to sports. It was only a matter of time when they took up eSports.

The eSports markets at Ladbrokes are downright standard. You have match betting, handicap betting and map winner – usually only on the first map but it depends on the game in question. Not every match has the full betting options at your disposal, as on some you can bet on the winner only.
Ladbrokes covers only League of Legends and Starcraft 2, as of right now. The bookie is evidently not ready to fully commit to eSports just yet, but with a name of this size we expect an expansion fairly soon.
Live bets on eSports matches is currently unavailable at Ladbrokes, and judging by the bookie’s eSports offering overall it may take a while before we see it.
Ladbrokes will match your first ever bet placed up to £50, but the bonus comes in the form of a free bet. Moreover, you will need to use promo code F50 when registering. Your qualifying bet must be placed at odds of 1.50 or higher, and it must be a minimum of £5.
The bookie is one of the most reputable names across the UK and wider. With a brand of this size and longevity in the industry, you should have no worries about your security whatsoever. Ladbrokes is licensed and regulated by the British Gambling Commission.
There are many reasons for this bookie’s excellent reputation, and customer service is absolutely one of them. Getting in touch with a support agent is most efficiently done via live chat or telephone (UK and International numbers), and there is also e-mail to boot.
Whether it’s as means of deposit or withdrawal, you have an almost innumerable amount of payment options at your disposal. Mastercard, VISA, Neteller, PayPal, Skrill, Ukash, Western Union – to name a “few”. Most methods carry no fees when depositing or withdrawing funds. Withdrawals can take 3-5 days, but even less when using e-wallets.
Design and Navigation:
Ladbrokes’ site is truly admirable to look at, but when you take a look under the cover it’s a bit easy to get lost. We’re sure players could use more clarity and arrangement, but overall it won’t take you long to get used to it. The eSports menu is hidden away to your left under the “A-Z Sports” menu.
