Ladbrokes Poker started up established 2002, is another member of the Microgaming Poker Network. As part of Ladbrokes plc, a world-leading land based and online betting company founded in 1902 and taking over 12B in stakes every year, it is arguably the biggest bookmaking brand in Europe today.

The appearance and features of the poker lobby does not differ much from other Microgaming Poker Network rooms except for the ability to customize your own cash games, tournament, calendar and so forth in the 'My Lobby' section. It's a rather nifty feature but not unique or new in any way. However, navigation is easy and there's an overall pleasantness to the lobby as a whole. A flash casino and some fun games are also integrated which many find convenient.

Games & Tournaments

In true Microgaming Poker Network fashion, Ladbrokes poker spreads NLHE games from as little as $0.05/0.10 up to $200/400 and FL games from $0.15/0.30 to $200/400. The highest limit games do run occationally and attract a lot of observers. Omaha games run from $0.10/0.20 to $200/400 with lower stakes PL games being the most popular. You will also find the odd stud and draw game but only during peak hours. Traffic is high during these hours with plenty of full ring and shorthanded tables to choose from.

Tournaments run 24/7, lots and lots of freeroll tournaments and low buy-in ones but also many in the $20-100 range. Freezeouts and rebuys, tournament with guaranteed prize pools and hundreds of daily satellites are to be found here. Ladbrokes Poker also holds exclusive tournaments like the LEOCOP, Poker Million and Ladbrokes Poker Cruise, you can qualify for these for just a few bucks. Daily freeroll qualifiers to the Poker Cruise are held at 21:15 BST.

Promotions And Support

Ladbrokes promotions are something else. From the generous and easily cleared 100% $500 max welcome bonus which only requires 15,000 poker points (20-25 points are awarded for each $ you rake, making this a 80-85% cash back bonus: rake $600-750 for the full $500) to the quite frequent reloads of $25-50 which you clear by raking a few measly dollars. Please note, the reloads are not monthly but when they do occur, are a welcome addition to your bankroll as they clear in a matter of minutes, even for the penny stakes player!

You will earn "Player Points" in ring games, MTTs and SnGs and they can be used as buy-in for the Ladbrokes daily/weekly tournaments with large prize pools. Player points also count towards the newly introduced 20-30% Cash Back system, see the Ladbrokes Poker site for more details.

Support/customer service is outstanding. Your standard email queries will be answered within a few hours, always with just the info you needed. The same goes for phone support where I personally have never waited more than a minute to get a hold of someone who could help me. Simply put, Ladbrokes online poker CS is top of the line, period.

Banking

For deposits, any of the following will work: Neteller, Debit/Credit Card, Moneybookers, Western Union, Bank Wire and even PayPal. Withdrawals are extremely fast, 6 hours max to Neteller, Moneybookers and PayPal, 2-4 days to bank accounts/credit cards. This is way above average for the industry and another point on the plus side of Ladbrokes Poker.

Conclusion

Summary: Microgaming Poker Network poker rooms are high traffic. Add to that great promotions, very fast cashouts and excellent support and you get an establishment that should appeal to almost every poker player out there. Ladbrokes comes highly recommended in my book. Nearly got 5 stars. Nearly!
