NB: Ladbrokes review based on personal experience/opinion and for reference purposes only.
Ladbrokes was established over fifty years ago, has a presence on over 2000 High Streets located across the UK, and has been operating online since 1998.
All that experience has led to Ladbrokes providing a decent range of sports betting markets with particularly good options when it comes to betting on UK and Irish horse racing.
Although not always offering the best Grand National odds, Ladbrokes do manage to stand out as they offer punters larger betting limits to bet with - often taking bets up to £5000.
The Ladbrokes website, and App for mobile devices and tablets, has been well designed with most bets just a couple of clicks away with both commanding secure user interfaces.
With more years serving the gambling community than most, Ladbrokes.com have also got quite a good customer service department too should you ever need to contact them.
All the representatives we've spoken to have been pretty knowledgeable about betting on the Grand National - which is absolutely fantastic for any gambler just starting out.
