Ladbrokes has made quite name for itself as one of the foremost bookmakers in the U.K., a reputation that relies largely on its stupendous selection of more than 2,500 betting outlets, all of which rake in more than 10 million bets every week. For such a huge operation, you can bet that Ladbrokes has an impressive bingo selection as well, and you would not be disappointed. In fact, the bingo rooms at Ladbrokes regularly register hundreds of players daily.
Signing up at Ladbrokes isn’t exactly as easy as we would have liked, and it took quite a bit longer than it would have in other bingo sites. You will have to provide the standard information and you also have the option to set the maximum deposit amount.
One other cause for concern was the slowness of the site, which can be a bit frustrating for those who want to get started on the bingo action quickly. Furthermore, we found that there are no bonuses offered to non-depositors and that we had to deposit £10 in order to get our hands on the £20 bonus.
Even when we did that however, we found that we still couldn’t get started! It appears that our account was inactivated since the last time we visited the site, and with no live customer support offered, we had to provide the necessary information by phone in order to get our account activated. We have to say that we found all of this a big hassle, and we have never had to go through so many runarounds just to get to play bingo!
We were about ready to pack it in and check out another bingo web site, but it was fortunate that we didn’t for after all that tedious signing up we found that Ladbrokes provides an absolute wealth of options aside from bingo, including sportsbooks, poker, casino, backgammon, lottery and even financial betting. With all of these options, we thought that we were in for more confusion but things actually proceeded pretty smoothly from this point onwards. We found the bingo section of the site particularly easy to navigate with a menu conveniently provided down the left side of the screen. In addition, there were also very prominent graphic links to the site’s various promotions and the ‘play now’ feature. We also found the inclusion of a bingo schedule quite handy, and it was particularly helpful in helping us get to the low-stakes games.
Playing the Ladbrokes bingo games was also a joy in itself. The games are powered by Virtue Fusion software, which provides what has to be one of the best graphic displays we have ever seen in an online gaming website. Ladbrokes also offers a pretty comprehensive selection of bingo games, including 90-, 80- and 75-ball versions of the game, in addition to a Joker Jackpot offering.
If you find yourself wanting to take a break from bingo, you will be glad to know that Ladbrokes also offers a pretty good selection of side games and slots, which rounds out a fairly satisfying online experience a few technical issues notwithstanding.
