Ladbrokes Live Casino Review - 8.4/10by Gambling.com™
Like many of the other big online betting companies, Ladbrokes offers a live casino; a place where punters can go to experience all the fun, thrill and authenticity of a real casino within the comfort of their own home.
The main thing that makes Ladbrokes stand out from others is its multi-partner configuration. Your normal live casino will work in conjunction with a bricks and mortar establishment that provides the live dealer services, while the online casino provides banking services and is the point of contact for players. In this case, Ladbrokes operates with the help of two partners – Evolution Gaming and CWC Gaming.
This inevitably has the benefit of offering customers more variety than other rivals. The atmosphere in each live casino is different; Evolution is streamed directly from Latvia and has over 40 tables all served by Eastern European dealers who adhere to a very traditional, continental theme. CWC has much more of Vegas about it, is smaller and has a more varied dealer base. Preference between the two is entirely subjective; the point is that each offers different variations of games, so the wealth of gaming options is certainly to be applauded.
Through the Evolution platform, Ladbrokes offers live roulette (European and French Gold), baccarat and blackjack. The French Gold option is for those who wish to play for a little more money, as bet limits are higher. Through CWC, European roulette, baccarat, blackjack and the ever-popular Sic Bo are offered. Bet limits are consistent across both platforms, and you can apply for VIP limits which, once approved, will stand across both Evolution and CWC.
The quality of streaming across both services is top drawer (high definition) and because the software is consistent across the whole platform, the user will have no problems switching from platform to platform or game to game. Moreover, despite the use of two casinos on the ground, customers’ only point of contact remains Ladbrokes, so services are still streamlined.
The graphical user interface is easy to use and convenient; chat boxes and controls are all to hand, even when the streaming screen is maximised – something you can do since the picture quality is so impressive. The immersive, interactive nature of the Ladbrokes live casino – more convincing than many of its rivals – certainly makes it one of the top services of its kind around.
The Ladbrokes live casino also offers a decent welcome bonus that will see your deposits matched by the casino itself. It works on a fairly simple basis; if you deposit, for example, £50 and play through it, £50 will immediately be deposited back into your account by Ladbrokes. When you have wagered a further £1000 at any time, that £50 match becomes clear for withdrawal. What’s more, new or returning players can take advantage of a bonus when playing live roulette. Make a claim for the bonus, before depositing the requisite amount and hitting the tables at the allotted time. Play through your deposit and you will be reimbursed the same amount, only this time it is immediately cleared for withdrawal.
Support and Depositing
Support and assistance is available 24/7 via e-mail and phone, while the dealers themselves are all friendly, helpful and willing to explain any game intricacies or variations should you be unclear. As you would expect, Ladbrokes allows for a large number of deposit methods and accepts a wide range of credit cards and debit cards.
