Ladbrokes App Overview
We like it when a bookmaker’s mobile app reflects its desktop site, and the Ladbrokes App certainly ticks that box. The Ladbrokes Mobile App immediately feels familiar and we were impressed by the smooth operation and slick interface. The Ladbrokes Mobile App is also very easy to use and the pages and odds load and refresh in no time at all.
We liked the layout of the Ladbrokes Mobile App, and it easy to locate the markets you want on the home page. You can access ‘Sports’, ‘Racing’ and ‘Next To Go’ with just one click on the buttons at the top of the home page. The menu button in the top left-hand corner is where you will find a button to take you to your account settings, as well as ‘Live Betting’ and ‘Ladbrokes Card’.
Although live online in-play betting is forbidden in Australia due to the Interactive Gambling Act, you can still find the latest live in-play odds on the Ladbrokes Mobile App. Once you locate the wager you want, you can use the ‘Call Me’ facility to get your bet on. Unfortunately, you cannot stream live sports or racing via the Ladbrokes Mobile App, but hopefully, that might change in the future. All the sporting and racing markets that you can find on the desktop site are on the mobile app too, and if you bet on the go then the Ladbrokes Mobile App is worth a punt.
