Welcome Bonus

Ladbrokes Poker is running a welcome bonus for new players that offers a maximum of £1,200 matched 200%. Status Points are earned every time you play cash games and tournaments. Ladbrokes releases £5 for every 170 Status Points exchanged on the site. There's also an attractive 90-day time limit to release the full balance of the bonus.

As well as the regular deposit match bonus, new players can take part in the €250 Newbie Delight tournament every week. They also receive four free tournament tokens into the €2,000 New Depositor Freeroll and €1,250 Depositors Freeroll.

Bonuses and Promotions

There's a new VIP Club at Ladbrokes Poker, open to anyone who plays for real money. The Club has six tiers, with each level offering more cash bonuses and tourney tokens as your progress up. Top-level VIP earners gain access to monthly 'Rake Races' with thousands of Euros at stake in prize money.

'Extra Cash Missions', meanwhile, takes the fashionable 'Achievements' craze to a new level with special prizes for hitting targets during tourneys. Hit J-J, Q-Q, or K-K three times, for example, and you'll win tokens into exclusive freerolls.

If pure gambling thrills is more your thing, Ladbrokes wastes no time in promoting its casino games. 'Poker Side Games' promotions reward extra cash if you hit certain blackjack or roulette targets while you play poker.

Software

Ladbrokes now resides among the welcoming bosom of the iPoker network. Rake and other changes may have put off some iPoker players in the last few years but the network still attracts a few thousand players at peak times. Both Windows PC and Mac OS users can download dedicated software for their machines.

Although Ladbrokes is on the iPoker network, the lobby is a little cleaner than other iPoker skins. Tournaments and cash games are easy to find in the lobby, while Promotions and Rewards are helpfully signposted. A new table design means United Kingdom players can switch to 'Mini Table' view and multi-table up to 16 games at once.

Customer Support

Just as Ladbrokes' sportsbetting and casino wings have excellent customer service, online poker players are well-served by support on-hand through the day. There's a quick and friendly Instant Chat team, as well as around a dozen specialist departments that can be emailed for help.

Customer Support can also be contacted, although there is no UK-based phone support.

Cash Games

The low-mid stakes cash games are perhaps the best reason to gamble at Ladbrokes Poker. Ignore the casino side games as you take on the fish in some juicy €0.10/0.25 No Limit Hold'em games. The traffic isn't terrible - around 3,000 at peak times - but you'll struggle to find too many players at the upper stakes. iPoker's own fast-fold variant, Speed Poker, is also available in a range of stakes.

A new rake structure began on iPoker from the beginning of 2016. Only the maximum and minimum limits are affected, and the 'no flop, no drop' rule still applies to cash game pots.

Tournaments and Sit 'N Go's

Ladbrokes has 5 million Euros of guaranteed tournaments online each month. As with other networks, Sundays are the time to log on, and casual players are catered for.

The €20,000 Sunday Masters carries a buy-in of just €150 and attracts a good crowd, as does the €75,000 Big Sunday. At the other end of the budget scale, the €20-buyin 'Grand Sunday' has a guaranteed prizepool of €25,000. That's about as 'high roller' as Ladbrokes gets, however.

iPoker's take on winner-takes-all Sit 'n Go's, Twister Poker, is available at Ladbrokes Poker. Twister Poker SNGs have buy-ins from €1-€10 and a randomly-assigned jackpot attached to each. Win the 3-man tournament and the jackpot is yours.
