Being such a major player in betting, you’d rightly have high expectations that a Ladbrokes app would carry on the proud tradition which its founders began back in 1886. We’re pleased to report that the app doesn’t disappoint. Read on for details for how to download the Ladbrokes Android app, along with the free bets that go with it, plus a review of the main features.
Ladbrokes App: First, open a new account for the free bets on offer
To begin with, proceed to use this link to register and secure the new customer offer (18+ T&Cs apply). Ladbrokes makes the process easy to do in just two simple steps if you have a PayPal account. If you don’t already have PayPal or prefer to use an alternative source to fund the account (e.g. credit card, Neteller etc), complete the form with your personal information, which includes your security questions and password creation.
During registration, don’t forget to use the promo code to get the £30 in free bets which is G30 (Bet £10, Get £30). We also recommend that you check the box that lets the Ladbrokes app notify you about special offers, promotions and free bets because there are good deals to be had which you’ll want to be alerted to. New customer offer, T&Cs apply, 18+ only.
Of course, after you’re done with the new account creation process, you could choose to continue using the mobile app site. You don’t need to have installable app download for Android, as it’s simple to create a home page link to the Ladbrokes mobile web app for future use.
Ladbrokes App Download
For the fastest and most reliable installed app, we recommend downloading the multi-bookie Android app Ladbrokes APK experience which is the BookieBoost app:
You can also download this app for Android and iOS devices from the BookieBoost.com official site. BookieBoost not only gives you faster access to Ladbrokes’ free bets and special offers, it also links to all of the other major bookmakers. This means that you can take advantage of multiple offers from the one app. Furthermore, BookieBoost has a ‘Bet Tools’ area where you can keep track of live scores (e.g. football, racing, tennis) as well as betting calculators so you can calculate your winnings. It effectively centralises your betting needs in the one app, rather than clogging up your home screen with more icons. It also keeps you informed by way of push alerts with info about special offer value bets from time to time.
You can get the BookieBoost app by pressing the download button below. It’s also available from Getjar & the Amazon App Store.
The above will allow you to download & install the required BookieBoost APK file directly onto your Android mobile or tablet device. Because it’s from an app store other than Google Play, you have to allow installs from Unknown Sources on your mobile device to and then complete the action using the Package Installer.
Logging in to bet on the Ladbrokes app
You can now login either by using BookieBoost (under ‘My Bookies’) or on the Ladbrokes mobile site directly by pressing the Login button at the top of the screen. If you’ve logged in previously, the Ladbrokes app should ‘remember’ your details and automatically log you in. You can also tap on ‘Bet Now’ from the initial screen.
You’ll no doubt be eager to use your free bet. After you’ve registered (see above) with the promo code F50, it gives you a free matched bet up to £50. Your first bet needs to be between £5 and £50 on any sport with odds of 1.5 or greater.
If you open the menu by tapping on the button at the top left, it opens up access to your account as well as ‘Quick Links’ to the most frequently used parts of the app. Our review team found this to be a useful way to browse Ladbrokes’ active promotions and current In-Play sports. These are probably the first place that most punters will look.
Scrolling down the Quick Links reveals the sports by category, showing the most popular sports for betting. If you need to see more sports, tap on ‘A-Z Betting’ to reveal others which include markets for GAA, Futsal, Handball and even Politics (which some politicians clearly regard as a sport if you’ve ever seen Parliament in session…).
The design of the Labrokes app is very clean and we found the navigation to be very intuitive. You should be able get to wherever you need within a couple of taps by scrolling down to the relevant section.
Different odds for each football match, for example, are stored in drop-down boxes that you can tap to show/hide. This is slicker than some apps that simply show all possible bets, which can have the effect of giving you a bit too much information all at once.
Look for the ‘Cash Out’ icon next to bets that have this option available. It’s green with two stacks of coins and an arrow. If you’re unfamiliar with this concept, it allows the punter to ensure a profit or reduce exposure prior to an event finishing.
Although you are offered less return than waiting for the event to complete but it can come in handy. Many of us have breathed a sigh of relief when cashing out just moment before an equaliser is scored during the closing stages of a football match.
