Having been in operation since 1886, Ladbrokes are one of the oldest bookmakers in operation today, and a name that is synonymous with betting in the UK.

They have evolved through the times and now have an exciting Sportsbook product which is loved by many. To encourage players to bet with them, they provide Ladbrokes promo codes which entitle players to free bets.

This article will tell you what you need to do to get those promo codes, what bonuses you can expect to find, and how you can take advantage of them.

How to source a Ladbrokes promo code

The Ladbrokes promo codes for new customers are available to everyone, and we’re going to tell you how to grab it.

It’s actually really simple. First, you must log one to the Ladbrokes website, where you will notice the Ladbrokes promo code advertised at the top of the website. Should that banner not be available, you will find the details in the ‘promotions’ tab.

In the promotions tab you have to look for the Ladbrokes sign up offers. The Ladbrokes promo code relating to that offer is mentioned in the banner.

At the time of writing, the Ladbrokes promo code is ‘F50’, and has been for a long time. But please keep in mind that the Ladbrokes promo codes are subject to change, so always check it has remained the same.

Now you’ve sourced the correct Ladbrokes promo code, all that is left is for you to open a new account and fill in the qualifying requirements of the offer. We’ll cover that in the next few sections to ensure you get the most from your Ladbrokes sign up offers.

How to use a Ladbrokes promo code

Now you’ve grabbed the Ladbrokes promo code, just follow these next steps to claim your sign up offers.

You have two choices, you can either click ‘claim now’ on the banner promoting the offer, or hit ‘join now’ on the top right hand side of the website.

Doing so will automatically generate a pop up, which is a sign up form for you to fill out. The first page titled ‘about you’ requires you to add information such as your name, date of birth and email. Once you’ve input this information, click ‘continue to step 2’.

Next you are required to input your address, postcode and mobile number, before clicking ‘continue to last step’ and progressing to the final screen.

The last page is the most important and you’ll need to have your Ladbrokes promo code handy. Just input your username, password, add a security question and set your daily deposit limits. Finally look for the box that says promo code. Just input the Ladbrokes promo code, agree to the terms and conditions and click ‘complete registration’.

Once you’ve opened your account, you’re well on your way to grabbing the Ladbrokes sign up offer! But you’re not quite there yet.

First you must make a deposit which qualifies you for the free bet. With Ladbrokes, this is usually a deposit of at least £5, but be aware that your free bet will be of the same value as your deposit. It’s wise to always check the terms and conditions before taking part in the offer.

Following that, place your bet on a selection at the minimum odds stated in the offer. Once that bet has been settled, you will receive your Ladbrokes promo code free bet.

How do I use my Ladbrokes offers?

At OddsMonkey, this is a subject which we are passionate about. We love helping people make the most of their sign up offers, and consistently make a profit from them.

We do this by teaching you about a tax-free method which helps some people earn over £1000 per month in tax free income. This is called matched betting.

Matched betting is a process which has transformed the lives of many. It is a way of turning the free bets offered by bookmakers into withdrawable cash.

You can watch this video we’ve produced to help you understand the process a little better.

Who are Ladbrokes?

In 1886, two men named Schwind and Pennington entered a partnership which would still leave a mark on the UK over 130 years later. Their idea was to back horses trained by Pennington which run at Ladbrokes hall in Worcestershire.

After a successful partnership, another man named Arthur Bendir joined forces with them. It was Bendir which changed the dynamics of the operation. He changed the emphasis from backing horses to backing against them. And thus, building the foundations for the bookmakers that are still around today.

But in those days, there were no Ladbrokes promo codes or sign up offers for new customers. Gambling was still illegal in the UK, and it wasn’t until 1961 when the Betting and Gaming Act legalised betting, that the Ladbrokes outfit was legitimised.

In 1962 Ladbrokes acquired their first betting shop, and from their they slowly built their empire across the UK, before floating on the London Stock Exchange in 1967.

Things carried on much the same until the year 2000, when they launched Ladbrokes.com. It was soon after this that Ladbrokes promo codes were introduced to entice new customers.

From there Ladbrokes online operation has gone from strength to strength. They recently merged with the Gala Coral group to become a gambling super company. So the signs are that they will be around for a long time to come, with lots more Ladbrokes offers on the horizon for their customers!
