Ladbrokes £50 free bet
It’s fair to say that we're big fans of Labrokes and we recommend it as the first online bookmaker to join if popping your online betting or matched betting cherry. Synonymous with betting, and a FTSE 250 listed company, you’re going to be in safe hands. We like the website, the mobile interface and also find that promotions are both frequent and generous.
As has become very common in recent years, particularly owing to the introduction of various regulations making scale not just a benefit, but a necessity, Ladbrokes hopped into bed with Coral to form the Ladbrokes Coral Group in 2016. Ladbrokes and Coral continue to operate under separate brands, however, and you could do much worse than Coral as a second choice. Think of it as somewhere to gain a bit more experience after the excitement of the first time has passed.
Currently, Ladbrokes will match your first deposit up to a maximum of £50; just make sure you deposit the maximum of £50 and use the promo code "F50" to qualify. If you deposit a lower amount, Ladbrokes will only match that so you've already lost out on some potential profit; not a great start. Having deposited, you will need to place a bet at odds of 1/2 (decimal 1.5) or greater. As soon as you have made this qualifying bet, Ladbrokes will credit your account with the matching free bet.
If matched betting at Ladbrokes
Ladbrokes doesn't return the free bet stake with any winnings, so it pays to lose at Ladbrokes and win at the betting exchange. See our Matched Betting Guide for an explanation why.
