Our independent review of, is no-nonsense and aims to tell you exactly what we like and dislike about the Australian arm of Ladbrokes PLC.

Ladbrokes PLC have more than 125 years of experience in the betting industry and branched out into Australia in 2013 with Ladbrokes Australia.

They got hammered by punters in the first year when offering double the odds on all Group 1 races during the 2013 Melbourne Spring Carnival, but to their credit they didn’t pack up with their tail between their legs, and instead continued to offer customers fantastic deals.

We have also managed to organise the promotion code MAXBET for new customers to use with up to $500 in bonus bets available for new customers*.
100% Australian

Although hails from British operator Ladbrokes PLC, they are far from the same. Think of fast food giant Burger King branching into Australia with Hungry Jacks – sure they similar in nature, but they cater to a different market and their products are designed accordingly. This is what makes them successful.

Ladbrokes Australia is exactly the same and they clearly did their homework before entering the Australian bookmaking landscape in order to give Australian punters what they want – and what we want are good prices and a hassle free wagering experience.

The Australian business is managed locally with offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane by a team of veteran betting experts and traders.

Ladbrokes' main focus is on horse racing, but having heard the cry from the Australia public, they have ensured punters also have an impressive array of AFL, NRL, soccer, tennis, cricket, golf and even many more sporting markets to punt on.

New Customer Offer and Promotion Code

The Ladbrokes promotions code MAXBET offers new customers the chance to get up to $500 in bonus bets* when signing up for an account. The offer is a 100% first deposit match, and the leading bookmaker will give you bonus bets to the value of your first deposit amount after joining.

Ladbrokes VISA Card

For punters that want instant access to their cash, the Ladbrokes VISA Card is a must. Once you’ve applied for and activated your new Ladbrokes VISA Card, you can simply transfer winnings to your card and withdraw at any ATM. Just like any other VISA card, you can use PAYWAVE, shop online, use the card overseas or just withdraw cash from your closest ATM.

Ladbrokes InfoHub

Ladbrokes InfoHub is set to be the best friend of punters with the bookmaker. The innovative product has an amazing array of data and information available at the press of a button. The Ladbrokes InfoHub is available on racing and sports events with a wide range of information available, split into a number of different categories - the overview, form guide, featured bets, fluctuations and bet tracker. The combined info helps punters make informed decisions before placing their bets.
Odds and Markets

Ladbrokes’ odds are highly competitive and you can rely on brand and quality of service to make your betting experience a superior one. Ladbrokes are not known for offering market leading prices, but you get plenty of value for your buck. What you can expect is a super-fast pay-out.

The site is easily one of the fastest on the market and is so easy to navigate. Everything you need to access is visible from the home page and you can quickly choose between "Racing", "Sports", "Novelty" and "Promotions."

For the less experienced punters, check out their helpful "How To,” “Tipping" and “Blog” sections if you're not quite sure on what to place your next bet on.


The neat looking app loads immediately and is easy to use with four main functions across the screen of your mobile device. Once you have logged in, select ‘Next To Go,’ ‘Racing,’ ‘Sports’ or ‘Promos’ to find what you are looking for. Unlike other betting apps, the race countdown is in real time and shows how many minutes and seconds are left before your event.
Live Streaming

Ladbrokes offer live streaming of sports events - although it isn't the great selection you will ever see. They don't have the same array of sports as Bet365, who stream up to 40,000 events a year, but if you're looking for some tennis, soccer or basketball to watch, for example, Ladbrokes do have some daily action.
