In 1902 the name was eventually adopted when Arthur Bendir joined, all the operations for the business were then moved to London. In 1961 when the government legalised betting shops under the Betting and Gaming Act, the managing director of Ladbrokes established a chain of betting shops and in July 2016 they announced a merger with the Gala Coral Group, as a consequence they had to sell 350 – 400 shops for the merger to go through as it was seen that the merger could harm local competition and the merger went through on the 2nd November 2016.

Ladbrokes have a fully optimised mobile site. If you open up the website on almost any mobile it should work instantly without the need to download any kind of mobile client. The experience is a broken down mini version of the desktop site. This mobile version works very well and should not take anything away from the experience of gaming online. It’s very useful as you can play on their casino whilst on the move. They do have a mobile app too which helps take your high street experience online, but it isn’t the most efficient and tends to run with a lot of bugs.
They have a customer support ‘contact us’ link which you can click through on the desktop website. We can’t actually find this on the mobile site. In this they offer support on Twitter, Phone with several numbers you can call for different levels of support depending on where you have a query. They also offer a postal address, email and media enquiries contact.
Ladbrokes is a very well-known historical online casino website bookmaker. They have a massive selection once you’ve joined which will keep any gambler occupied. The welcome offers are also as good as almost anywhere else. The only downside we’ve noticed is that the customer service is difficult to find on the mobile site, but saying that the mobile site works efficiently and enjoyably. Ladbrokes are one of the more well-known online casino website operators, they have a massive selection across the board and also have good pay-outs. So definitely worth a try.
