Ladbrokes Casino Review

A lot can be said about Ladbrokes. The company has been around since 1886, after all.

But let’s start with the most important things. One, they’re one of the few sites that run a Spanish blackjack game. Two, they have software for all the major operating systems and devices including Mac, iPhone and Android. You can use this software to play in their casino, poker room, bingo hall and sportsbook.

The downside to Ladbrokes is that they don’t accept American players, even for the play money games. In fact, I had to get a VPN to review their site.

The rest of the important information including games, promos and banking can be found below. Read on to learn more about my hands on experience.

Playing Spanish Blackjack at Ladbrokes Casino

Play Spanish Blackjack at Ladbrokes

Labrokes offers two different Spanish blackjack variations. One is a single hand and the other is a multi-hand game. Both games are available in the download and Ladbrokes’ no download browser versions of the software.

I opened up the browser version to check out the game. The software and graphics are good — not great — but not bad by any means. After playing a couple of hands I noticed that their game isn’t as fast as other casinos. They’re still faster than 5 Dimes, though.

The minimum wager is £1 and the maximum is £200. The maximum is smaller compared to the majority of other casinos that I’ve reviewed, but I still think it’ll work for most players.

Here are Ladbrokes’ rules and payouts for their Spanish blackjack game:

  • Played with 8 decks
  • Late surrender possible
  • Dealer does not stand on soft 17
  • Insurance pays 2:1
  • 3:2 on blackjacks, 1:1 on other non-blackjack winning hands

The only noticeable differences I’ve found (compared to other casinos) is that Ladbrokes uses 8 decks (instead of 6) and they stand on a soft 17 whereas 5 Dimes stands on a hard 17 and soft 18.

Other Games at Ladbrokes

There are over 500 games at Ladbrokes. Here is an overview of the other available games:

  • Blackjack – 25 variations of blackjack including Vegas downtown blackjack, premier blackjack, European blackjack and Atlantic City blackjack.
  • Live Casino – Blackjack, roulette and baccarat.
  • Video Poker – Over 20 variations including aces and eights, joker poker, bonus poker and all aces.
  • Slots – 3 & 5 reel and progressives. The progressive slots have fun themes such as Batman and jackpots are well into the millions of pounds.

In addition to the casino games, you can play poker, bet on the sports that are in season, play bingo or play skill-games like backgammon. I’m positive that you won’t run out of things to do with an account at Ladbrokes.

Ladbrokes Promotions

There are a couple of promotions that you can take advantage of at Ladbrokes.

100% up to £100 Welcome Bonus

You can choose from 3 different welcome bonuses at Ladbrokes. However, if you choose to play Spanish blackjack, the only option you have is the 100% match up to £50.

To receive your bonus you’ll need to turn your deposit over 20 times. What that means is if you deposit the full £50, you’ll need to wager £1,000 before you can cash out.

£5 Free

Get a no deposit bonus of £5 just for signing up.

200% Download Bonus

If you download the casino instead of play the flash version, you’re eligible for the 200% match bonus. This is a match on your first deposit up to £200. That means for every £1 that you deposit you’re receiving £2 free. You will also receive 50 free spins for Thunderstruck 2.

This bonus requires a minimum of a 20x rollover.

Other than not being available to American players, Ladbrokes is a top casino for Spanish blackjack, let alone anything else that you might want to play. You have access to tons of gambling, plenty of bonuses that work with blackjack games and excellent deposit/withdrawal options. To be honest, I’m jealous that I can’t play there. Enjoy it for me, will you?!?
