If my memory serves me well, the Ladbrokes casino once was using Microgaming software. Today is using the Playtech software. For a long time I have not enjoyed in the Playtech games and that is why I decided to join this casino.
The welcome bonus with the percentage of 200% on the first deposit was another reason why I joined the casino. But soon, after I filled out the fields and made the account, I found that the link here on the AG leads to Ladbrokes mobile casino. As I use PC, I could not play here. So I searched for a downloadable casino and I have installed the casino software.
I decided to make a deposit of 22 euros because that was all that I had on my Neteller account. But instead of a bonus of 200% I got only 100% or in other words 22 euros on my deposit. I did not want to contact the support for this. The first game with which I started was Blade. But after a while, I lost half of the money here. Then I moved on the Fantastic Four. This is a great slot game with 20 pay-lines. Here I had a Decent Wins of almost 100 x bet. After this wins my balance was at 27 euros and I decided to try with Sherlock Mystery. This is one of the newer Playtech slot games that often is my choice recently. But for half an hour of playing here, my balance fell from 27 euro to below 10 euros. The game which was my next choice is called Easter Surprise. Here I played for more than an hour. Even I succeeded to meet the wagering requirement but I did not have a sufficient amount in the account to request a withdrawal.
It is interesting that, immediately after my deposit I got mail from the casino in which they requested from me to send them a document for verification. Which I did, and my documents were accepted the next day. For Ladbrokes casino I give a solid 8 stars.
Ladbrokes was one of the very first on-line casinos I would frequent, they were a Microgaming based casino at that time and had some really great promotions available, a fantastic welcome bonus, a great comp points scheme, I can’t even really remember all the good points… but I know I regarded them as being one of the very best on-line casinos out there.
Theres no doubt in my mind that Ladbrokes have gone way downhill since they ditched the Microgaming software. I first joined their casino at that stage and I got a 200% bonus on a £100 deposit with 30 times bonus wagering requirement, as well as 50 free spins on Immortal Romance – they were at £0.60p per spin as well, unlike almost every other on-line casino out there which only ever gives away free spins at the minimum possible bet.
When the switch to playtech was announced, I could not help but groan – pretty much every other major UK bookmaker already bases their on-line presence on Playtech software including Betfred, Corals, Gala, and William Hill. I guess they must be offering some extremely attractive financials to these companies to get them to move away from the likes of Microgaming as Ladbrokes also ditched t heir Microgaming poker room which got them a whole tonne of negative press too.
I received a new 200% bonus when the transfer to Playtech was completed, and set abouttrying some om my favourite playtech games on the new Ladbrokes site. I did infact manage to blast my way through the massive wagering requirements, with a reasonable profit and a total balance of a little over £400, however when I went to request a withdrawal I found that there was a problem because the bonus I had been given was not even cashable – I cannot believe that such a large UK name like Ladbrokes is offering this kind of shady bonus where they try and take the bleeding bonus back after you have completed the entire wagering requirement. It just blows my mind, and there really is just nothing positive I can say about this on-line casino now. Be warned – Ladbrokes is not worth your time now, not whatsoever.
