Ladbrokes, the mega giant in
online sports betting, has moved
into the poker world with a
bang! In 2009 they moved
to the Microgaming network,
which means they share players
with several other rooms.
This means that you will always
be able to find a game, unlike
before when they were on a
standalone network. The room
offers a fantastic fantastic welcome bonus
where players will get 100% up
The key benefits of Ladbrokes
are the games are super soft.
Most of the players on the
network are novice poker players
and the games are all easily
beatable. Since the
network does not allow rakeback
you get a ton of players that
are more casual and the soft
competition will easily make up
for the rakeback that you would
be getting on another site.
now part of the Micrograming
network and can no longer offer
rakeback to their players as
part of the network rules.
Instead they offer a $1 Million
rake race every month where the
top players can earn up to
$20,000 for raking the most
money on the site (WAY MORE THAN
ANY RAKEBACK DEAL!)
Ladbrokes Poker Software
The upgraded software available at Ladbrokes Poker is not to be out done. They have 3D Poker, a standard poker
client, and even a no-download version. The format is very player friendly, smooth and transition from one
table to the next, with the multi table format not slowing a bit with a broadband connection. Their 3D version is
a real design in competition with other online poker rooms who have developed the 3D Avatar Technology.
Ladbrokes Poker Game Variety
Ladbrokes keeps the competition great with
their incredibly successful promotions. One example of such incredible and
successful promotions is the 2008 World Series of Poker Team League. Annually
the league narrows down to the best players who are then sent to represent
Ladbrokes in the biggest, and most involved live poker tournament. If that was
not enough to attract some incredible online poker talent, the Poker Cruise
League also runs in tandem awarding the winner and friends to an incredible
Caribbean Poker Cruise.
The team events begin Feb 21st putting the 14 thousand
dollar WSOP package up for grabs to the winning team and one ‘Lucky Loser’. The
same design is in place for the Poker Cruise League and winning team. Either
could land you with incredible live poker achievements. One may pay out well
into the millions.
Each poker league will run 14 weeks, with buy in events starting with 20 + 2.
Just put together a team of 2-4 talented poker players and play your way into
the biggest live poker events Ladbrokes Style.
