Ladbrokes is a British-based gambling organization that was established way back in 1886. For more than a hundred years, Ladbrokes has been a trusted brand providing a variety of wagering services. When Ladbrokes ventured online in the 90s, the Ladbrokes website transitioned very well and Ladbrokes.com continues to thrive. Ladbrokes.com has since extended their online presence beyond sports betting to include online bingo, multi-player poker room, financial wagers, lottos, video games, live dealer casino, and mobile casino.

How to Open a Ladbrokes Mobile Account
We recommend visiting ladbrokes casino with your computer, not your mobile device or iPad. It’s simply much quicker and easier to register your account with a computer. It’s also safer to make your deposit when on your computer versus a mobile device. However, once your Ladbrokes account is set up, you can switch to your iPad or iPhone and have direct access. Follow these instructions:
1. First click here and register a new account, and then make your first deposit.
2. Then launch Safari on your iPhone or iPad and type in “ladbrokes.com” in the address bar, and press “Go”.
3. Click on the button located at the top of your browser. Select Add to Home Screen to place the icon on your iPad:
You will now have an icon of the Ladbrokes Mobile site right on your iPad or iPhone screen!
The new Ladbrokes HD mobile casino will automatically get launched when accessed by iPhone, iPad, or Android 4.0 and above devices. Older devices and Android devices below 4.0 will revert to the standard Ladbrokes mobile casino described further below!

The standard (older version) of the Ladbrokes mobile casino provides a nice assortment of 11 games – blackjack, jacks or better video poker, roulette, Thunderstruck slots, Tomb Raider slots, Major Millions progressive slots, Mermaids Millions slots, Mega Moolah slots, Royal Derby virtual racing, and two scratchcard instant win games – Dragons Fortune and Bingo Bonanza.
Below is a screenshot of the Ladbrokes Mobile Casino lobby, taken from my iPad (the Mega Moolah slot game is listed below the fold!)
The Ladbrokes mobile casino offers two progressive jackpot games, Major Millions and Mega Moolah. Both progressive mobile games are tied into the larger Ladbrokes online casino versions of the same games, so the jackpots can get massive. At the time of this writing, the jackpot at Major Millions is £ 956,516.69 and the jackpot at Mega Moolah is even larger at £ 1,057,452.46! And both of these can played (and won!) right from your iPad or iPhone (or other mobile device).
Ladbrokes Mobile Game Selection
Check out the screenshots and descriptions of the available games offered by the Ladbrokes mobile casino below. All screenshots were taken from my iPad:
|Click to Play!||Mobile Game||Description
|Blackjack||Blackjack, also called 21, is one the most popular casino games in the world. The goal of the game is temptingly simple: Beat the dealer’s hand without exceeding 21, known as busting. Ladbrokes offers a smooth system that plays very fast. That allows the player to process many hands in a short period, and that make this version very popular with dedicated blackjack players.
|Video Poker||Jacks or Better, sometimes called Draw Poker, is the classic fast-paced video poker game. The goal, as the name suggests, is to get a pair of jacks or better. The player doesn’t play against a dealer, and simply wins based on their hand according to the payout schedule and the number of coins played.
|Roulette||Microgaming markets its roulette game as “the world’s smallest roulette wheel.” The game uses a European wheel only, and despite its size, the view of both the wheel and spin action is exceptional. The game also offers some zoomed-in visual cues as well, and manages to pack a lot into such a small space.
|Tomb Raider Slots||Tomb Raider is a Lara Croft-themed adventure-style slot machine. It’s a 5-reel, 15-line machine licensed by Square Enix that has a jackpot of $18,750. Tomb Raider is a lucrative slots machine, but it’s also a complex one, and it realty caters to those players looking for a challenge.
|Mega Moolah Progressive||Mega Moolah is a video slot machine with a live progressive jackpot that’s often larger than one million dollars. It’s a 5-reel, 25-line machine. The coin range is $0.01 to $0.05, and it allows up to 125 coins per play. Many players play this slot small, but the best bet is to play max coins with each spin.
|Thunderstruck Slots||Thunderstruck is a slot game with a theme based on Thor, the Norse god of thunder. It’s a 5-reel, 9-line machine with coin range of $0.01 to $1.00. This is one of the most popular slots across GameWire and the Microgaming network because it has excellent odds, an awesome jackpot and a gorgeous symbol set.
|Mobile Bingo Bonanza Instant Win||Bingo has never been so fun and easy - you only need to match 2 balls to win! Take the excitement of the lottery and the fun of Bingo on the move with Bingo Bonanza.
|Dragons Fortune Instant Win||These fortunes are better than the ones you find in a fortune cookie! Watch the dragon make you rich when it multiplies your bet 20,000 times over!
|Major Millions Progressive||Major Millions is a 5-reel, 15-payline slot machine with a progressive jackpot, and as its name suggests, that jackpot is often in the millions. The coin size is $0.20 only, and users can play from 1 to 300 coins. Major Millions has an array of great features, including wilds, free spins, bonus games, autoplay and even adjustable game speed.
|Mermaids Millions Slots||With an underwater theme, Mermaid Million is an exciting 5-reel, 15-line, 75-coin slots game with a coin range from $0.01 to $1.00. King Neptune is the wild symbol, and if you hit all five them, you hit the 7,500-coin jackpot. Three treasure chests reveal a bonus game where the player picks a chest to win a hidden prize.
|Royal Derby Virtual Racing||The Royal Derby game is a virtual horse racing game that provides the player the experience of being at the track right from their mobile device. Players make wagers based on the odds assigned to the horses, and then the six-horse race plays out, including crowd noises, jockeying for position and photo finishes.
The Microgaming-powered mobile games are fun games but the slot games lack the level of graphics and animation that the William Hill mobile casino offers. It appears that the Ladbrokes mobile games were built more for lower resolution devices rather than the iPhone and iPad.
However, what the Ladbrokes mobile casino lacks in graphics quality, it makes up in the game selection. The games are a lot of fun and the game selection offers a nice variety unlike the William Hill mobile casino games. The derby racing game is great – betting on a horse and then cheering for him to win is surprisingly entertaining! And of course, you have the possibility of becoming a millionaire by playing one of the two progressive slot games!
