Ladbrokes is a very big name in UK gambling and they have a huge number of ways you can gamble through games, sports and now through lottos. Ladbrokes lotto allows you to bet on the outcome of lottos around the world and maximize the number of lottery draws you could win money from.
Ladbrokes is one of a few bookmakers which dates back to the 1800’s and was founded in 1886. These days, it has over 16,000 employees in the UK and while it still has a huge presence on the high street, it also has a huge player base on laptop and mobile. It is owned by GVC Holdings plc who bought it along with the other gambling company it is merged with, Coral, in 2018.
Traditionally Ladbrokes allows gambling on sports, but like many other companies in the gambling space it has branched out to new areas such as games and casino. Lotto is another relatively new venture.
Lotto games which you can gamble on the outcome of with Ladbrokes Lotto include the Irish Lottery, DailyMillions, Spanish Lottery, 49’s and the New York State Lottery. This is a decent coverage, comparable to many of the other betting companies allowing you to gamble on lotto games.
How it Works
You aren’t actually buying a ticket for the lottery in question when you play lotto games with Ladbrokes. Instead, you are gambling on the outcome of these lotto draws. Simply put, you are gambling with Ladbrokes on whether these numbers are going to come up in the draw or not, rather than getting a broker to buy you a ticket. If you win, it is Ladbrokes who will pay out rather than the actual lottery draw company.
On the lotto in question, you can see the odds for matching a certain amount of numbers. Ladbrokes match the payouts for these draws that you would get if you were taking part in the actual lotto, so you don’t need to worry about whether you would get paid more taking part directly. The maximum payout is £250,000 GBP per day whether you are betting alone or as part of a syndicate.
Unfortunately, Ladbrokes does not offer any bonuses or promotions for new customers playing Lotto, though there is a promotions section of their website which simply reads “coming soon” as of 2019. The bonuses and promotions on Lotto companies don’t tend to be as big as those on casino companies, for example, but some do have a signup bonus.
How to Play
You can play the Ladbrokes lotto betting games either on their desktop site or on mobile. Many tablets and smartphones can access the desktop version of the site on their browser. If not, there are apps available for both Android and iOS. These are relatively simple to install and though the layout and interface is not as slick as some of the competitors, it is easy enough to place your bets.
As Ladbrokes is a large company, they accept a large number of payment methods including debit card, credit card, PayPal, bank transfer, Neteller and Skrill. Payments are instant through many of these methods, though withdrawals can take up to seven working days after you have won.
As you would expect from such a large company, there are numerous ways to get in touch regarding any account issues or support you may need. The easiest method is probably through the live chat, which you can access when logged into your account. Alternatively, you can speak to customer representatives on 0800 731 6191.
