Ladbrokes Welcome Bonus

📣 A low initial deposit of £5 sees you get £20 back in free bets which you need to use within 7 days of accreditation. You can use your free bets on accas, each ways or bet on the same event across different markets.

Your free bet must be wagered in full, on any of the following sportsbook markets: Football, Horse Racing, Greyhound Racing, Tennis, Basketball, American Football, Boxing, Rugby Union, Rugby League, UFC, Cricket, Table Tennis, Darts, Golf, Snooker, Esports, Ice Hockey, Volleyball, Beach Volleyball, Gaelic Football, Pool, Specials (excluding tote & pools).

Why the Ladbrokes welcome offer is good

  • You receive 4 x £5 free bets to be used across a great range of popular markets
  • The low initial deposit of £5 is matched by the low initial odds of 1.5
  • The offer is really easy to claim, just click the 'claim' button at the top of the 'My Offers' page once you have logged in

Who the welcome offer is good for

The welcome offer is good for all you sportsbook fans and those who are looking to place more than one bet. It is also great for football fans who want to build accas with small amounts. I would also say it is great for horse racing as you can bet on up to 4 fixtures in the same day.

If you like to bet on multiple sports, Ladbrokes make it easy for you with this welcome bonus

Who the welcome offer is not suitable for

If you want to stake all the free bets on the same market, this is not possible - they have to be staked across a range of markets.

Customers who deposit with an eWallet (Skrill/Boku/Neteller/PayPal) do not qualify for this offer.

Author's opinion: Yay or Nay?
Poppy Taylor

Poppy Taylor

Yay: Low stake and qualifying odds, which is something I look for in a good value sign up bonus

Nay: You cannot stake all the free bets together, it has to be 4 separate £5 bets. It can be on the same market, but not for the same outcome!

1) Ladbrokes Best Acca

This acca scheme not only offers boosted odds and acca insurance but also the possibility to edit your acca to remove losing legs, or if you've changed your mind both before and after your selected matches and events have started! That's right- you can live edit your acca to reflect changes or preferences that occur after you have placed you bet.

  • Acca Boost

The Odds Boost button in your betslip applies to single sleections within your acca, and will be available to press if the selections in your acca qualify for odds boosting. Only the first £50 of your stakes(s) qualify for boosting which is fair enough, but the best thing about the odds boost is that it is available for both pre match and in play singles.

  • Acca Insure

Place an acca with 5 or more selections at minimum odds of 1.10 per leg or combined odds of 4.0 on the following markets: Match Result, Both Teams to Score, Match Result and Both Teams to Score, Correct Score, or Over/Under Total Goals. And if one leg loses, you can get your money back as a free bet up to £10!

Your can get maximum 1 free bet per day, and your first acca placed each day is the one available to insure.

  • Acca Edit

The best element of the Ladbrokes Best Acca is the edit my acca function, which means you can track, cash out and edit your acca to remove losing legs both pre-match and in play. Any edits will see a revised potential returns amount, but if you have boosted your acca as long as your edit is still within the range of boosted markets it will still remain boosted.

If you edit your acca, you can no longer insure it, but who needs insurance if you've edited for a win, ey?

2) Ladbrokes 5-A-Side

Working in a similar way to LiveScore Bet's Squads, Ladbrokes 5-A-Side is available on on every game of Europe's top leagues and competitions, including the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and Europa League plus the elite divisions from Spain, Italy, Germany and France.

With slightly different positions and formations to a normal footie team, Ladbrokes have really upped the anti with their Leaderboard contest, where you compete with other players (including your best mates) to win cash prizes and free bets.

You need to create a team and a winning formation within a certain game, and if the players you have selected fulfill their goals you can win big.

How does Ladbrokes 5-A-Side work?

⚽ How do I create a 5-A-Side team?

Pick a formationÖ

  • Balanced (1-1-2-1) – 1 keeper, 1 hacker, 1 baller, 1 sniper and 1 finisher
  • All-out attack (1-1-0-3) – 1 keeper, 1 hacker, 2 snipers and 1 finisher
  • Rush goalie (0-1-2-2) – 1 hacker, 1 playmaker, 1 sniper and 2 finishers
  • Park the bus (1-3-0-1) – 1 keeper, 2 hackers, 1 cruncher and 1 chancer
  • Gung-Ho! (0-1-1-3) – 1 baller, 1 playmaker, 1 sniper, 1 finisher and 1 sharpshooter
  • Shoot on sight (1-0-2-2) – 1 keeper, 1 chancer, 1 sniper, 1 sharpshooter and 1 finisher

👕 How do I choose the players?

Within the formation, each player has a certain role. You choose 5 players and can assign one of 9 roles to them. If they fulfill them, you win!

Roles:

  • Keeper (to concede X goals): You can choose how many goals you think your goalkeeper will concede, or opt for a clean sheet instead.
  • Hacker (to be carded): If you are in need of a player to keep the referee busy, this player position is for you.
  • Cruncher (to make X tackles): Place a defensive cruncher in your team to make a number of tackles.
  • Baller (to make X Passes): If you would like a player to make a lot of passes, then choose a baller to form part of your team and select how many passes they’ll make.
  • Playmaker (to have X assists): Pick a playmaker to have a number of assists and set up those goals.
  • Chancer (to have X shots outside the box): If you are eyeing an impressive player who could shoot at a goal from outside the box, choose him as your chancer!
  • Sniper (to have X shots): If you think a player will keep shooting at any chance he gets – even when achieving the goal does not seem at all likely – this player should be your sniper.
  • Finisher (to score X goals): A finisher’s role is entirely focused on getting the ball into the net, so this is your player for scoring a high number of goals.
  • Sharp-shooter (to have X shots on target): While a sniper is always a good option, the sharp-shooter will shoot AND hit the target.

💶 How do I win at Ladbrokes 5-A-Side?

Study the stats, know your stuff, and climb up the leaderboard against other players. Think about this 5-a-Side like a five-fold accumulator made through the bet builder tool - the best built bet will win!

3) Ladbrokes Odds Boosts

Available for horse racing and football markets, Ladbrokes have daily Odds Boosts tokens as well as an Odds Boosts calendar so you can see how much you can and will be boosted by. There is a genuinely great range of Odds Boosts available, and it is so worth becoming a Ladbrokes customer to access them.

Casino on Ladbrokes

So Ladbrokes are definitely a sport forward bookmaker, but they still have a great casino and gaming section. They have exclusive games, a great range of Slots, Megaways and Daily Drop wins as well as a host of £0.10 minimum bet games.

Ladbrokes also have a game finder tool, where they will select a perfect game for you based on your preferred theme, preferred feature and win frequency. This is so cool.

Welcome bonus verdict

Overall: 9/10

Low initial deposit and low minimum odds make this a great sign up offer, and the range of markets eligible for the welcome bonus is great too. They lose a point as not every market is valid for the bonus free bets. But every single other feature of Ladbrokes is 10/10.

REMEMBER: you cannot access the welcome bonus if you make your qualifying deposit with an e-wallet (Skrill, Neteller, PayPal, Boku).

Ladbrokes App

It looks nice and has great usability, but it is nothing out of this world. Football graphics and Ladbrokes 5-A-Side are wonderfully optimised on the app, but nothing aside from the notifications is different from using their mobile site for other sports. Yes, you can live stream in the app and place all types of bets, but it is nothing to go and show your Grandma about. It works.

Ladbrokes Customer Service

I mentioned at the top that Ladbrokes have a slow and slightly creepy live chat service, and I stand by that. You have to go through a bot to direct your query to an agent, which is fine, but when you get to the agent they take a while to go and find answers to simple questions such as 'am I able to combine my x4 free £5 bets as one single bet for the welcome bonus?' and 'what time does Ladbrokes offer Extra Places on horseracing?' On all the occasions I contacted them, they called me by a different name when they returned. Apparently I am Peter Ramini Taylor. In addition, they asked me how my week was going (fine) and was I happy at my job (intrusive). I get they are trying to do their best to answer each and every query in the most clear detail, but they do need to work on the basics too like peoples names and basic small talk.

Ladbrokes Bonus Codes

As Ladbrokes have a fair few new and existing customer bonuses, occasionally they spew out a bonus code, but for the current welcome offer no code is necessary!
