Ladbrokes Bulks Up Game Line-Up Through Renewed Deal

Ladbrokes, operator of leading poker and casino gaming sites, has announced the conclusion of a deal that will see the addition of several new games to its service. As part of its deal Ladbrokes players are now going to be able to enjoy play that features some of the most beloved brands in the industry.

The deal in question saw Ladbrokes and its previous software provider, Microgaming renew their contract earlier this summer. This move has also given the former company access to titles from developers, Ash Gaming and Blueprint Gaming as part of its supply agreement. Members of the Ladbrokes network will now be able to play branded games that include Ash Gaming’s “Alice’s Wonderland”, “Midas Millions”, “Amazon” and “Pharaoh’s Treasure” along with Blueprint Gaming’s “Casper”, “Bejeweled 2”, “Zuma”, “Chuzzle” and “Viz.” These titles come from two of the best regarded developers working in the industry and should add some extra, quality fun to an already impressive selection of games.

It’s always exciting to see new titles added to gaming sites and fans of Ladbrokes are sure to be pleased with the newly expanded line-up. Ladbrokes’ Chief Executive Officer, Richard Glynn, told press that he believes the new additions “will complement our current and growing games portfolio” while Blueprint Gaming’s Matt Cole said that his company was “delighted to supply with leading slot-based content.”

Ladbrokes Pares Down Accessibility by Removing Language Support

Ladbrokes has been known for its robust language support in the past but now, with the popular gaming network’s recent decision to remove part of its feature set, this is looking to change. The company has recently announced that it will pare down its currency and linguistic support options in the near future, cutting down on aspects of its international business in order to hone its focus on select markets.

The online gaming giant is set to remove many of its current sub-sites, moving to only 13 region-specific sites, the support of 17 currencies and a step down to only nine languages. English, Danish, Swedish, Greek, Chinese, Spanish, Polish, Thai and German will remain but players that prefer to play in Czech, Finnish, Croatian, Bulgarian, Norwegian, Hungarian, Portuguese, Russian, Slovenian, Slovakian and Romanian will no longer enjoy Ladbrokes support. The gambling network considers the removed currencies and languages to be unessential for future success and, although this is bad news for affected markets, remaining support areas can look to enjoy bigger and better promotions in the near future.

Ladbrokes players from different markets are sure to be upset by the company’s decision to remove its previously substantial list of regional offerings. The reduction is due to Ladbrokes’ revamp of their operating plan (based on a recent review of viable online gaming regions) and is meant to strengthen support for remaining markets while minimizing corporate spending.

Ladbrokes Promotes Monthly Bounty Tournaments with Steve Davis

Successful online gambling network, Ladbrokes, has unveiled details of an exciting new promotion that aims to put its members into competition against one of the snooker world’s most accomplished players, Steve Davis. The London native will take on poker players at cash tables under the handle, “5K2”, offering a great bounty target and the chance to win even further rewards as he appears at various Ladbrokes cash tables.

Steve Davis, a six-time World Champion snooker player, will take part in an ongoing series of bounty tournaments that allow site members to take their chances in competition against the renowned athlete. Beginning on Wednesday, 18th August at 7.30, Davis will take on competitors in bounty competitions (where knocking out the snooker pro rewards the winner with £200). After Davis is eliminated from games, he will join Sit and Go tournaments or other cash tables. Players that join these games also have the chance to win a £13 Cruise Steps Tournament ticket (from 50 available tickets) that makes them eligible for a £4,000 Poker Cruise prize package.

Players that encounter Davis in competitions will be able to chat with the star about snooker, poker and more while fighting for the Poker Cruise prize. Ladbrokes’ innovative new bounty event is set to kick off on 18th August and will feature an initial buy-in of £5.50 with half-price rebuys.

Ladbrokes Bingo Celebrate Summer Holidays with New Giveaway

Although the kind folks at Ladbrokes Bingo certainly have no problem with their members staying inside to enjoy their games they’ve still been good enough to provide a few incentives to get even their most loyal fans out into the sun before the summer is over. The Summer Holidays Giveaway is aimed at doing just this, giving devoted bingo players a prize set that pretty much guarantees a great time enjoying the warmth of the season.

The prize system works by giving away vouchers to be used for a variety of different summer-themed options, a concept that allows for a lot of flexibility when it comes time for lucky winners to spend their newfound fortune. 1
st prize, for example, gives the winner £700 worth of holiday vouchers that can be spent at resorts across the UK or other specified locations throughout the world.

To enter the Summer Holidays Giveaway Ladbrokes Bingo members need to play in 90-ball bingo rooms, earning one entry to the prize draw for every 20 bingo tickets purchased during the week. Winners will be selected at the end of each qualifying period until contest’s end next month. These rewards should help create plenty of incentive for Ladbrokes Bingo members to log on to the site often from now until the beginning of September.

St. Alban’s Man Wins Big at Ladbrokes Bingo

While many are fretting about the continuing recession’s effect on their pocketbooks one St. Alban’s resident will be able to put his mind to rest after having won a massive prize from Ladbrokes Bingo.

The slots jackpot awarded to him had been accumulating for about nine months, waiting for a fortunate player to strike it rich with its cash reward.

The man, known to press as “Mr. H”, won big on a Ladbrokes Bingo slot machine after putting down a stake of only £3 for the enormous prize jackpot he ended up taking home. Mr. H played on the “Chain Reactions” slots at Ladbrokes Bingo, increasing his tiny bet into a decidedly more substantial payout of £109,467. Playing on a break during a typical work day, Mr. H was astounded to have won the prize in the same week that he was planning to celebrate his birthday.

According to Mr. H and his wife, the prize couldn’t have come at a better time. The couple has been feeling the effects of the dismal economy, having been made to cancel a ski vacation and watch their spending carefully. Now the jackpots have begun to build up again, providing enticement for any Ladbrokes Bingo hopefuls attempting to make their own success story out of a lucky game at the site.

The company is also beefing up the service for even casual online gamers by allowing every £5 spent across the entire Ladbrokes network (including the popular
poker, casino and sports betting sites) to be used toward buying a chance to win the Pay Your Bills 2009 prize.

Massive Ladbrokes Bingo Promotions in Liverpool during Ad Shoot

Ladbrokes, one of Great Britain’s best known online bingo providers have launched an enormous advertising campaign in the city streets of Liverpool. The filming of an over-the-top commercial spot has already attracted the attention of a large number of city dwellers even before its slated airing on UK TV beginning next month.

The company grabbed publicity by floating giant bingo balls down the Liverpool streets to the amazement of onlookers. Giant spheres, some thirteen feet in diameter, were sent past major city landmarks where pedestrians often pushed them along their path. Video crew were set up to capture the event for the upcoming Ladbrokes bingo commercial which will soon see the footage edited to display the balls passing Liverpool landmarks such as St George’s Hall, the Steblel Fountain, the Liver Building and the Museum Steps. Ladbrokes’ Marketing Manager, Charlie Goodenough reported that his company was excited to carry out such a large-scale advertisement shoot and provide Liverpool citizens with some entertainment in the process.

M&S Saatchi were partnered with Ladbrokes to conceive the larger-than-life publicity stunt and have promised the inclusion of further edits depicting real-life renditions of bingo slang (such as the ‘two fat ladies’, ‘two little ducks’, ‘legs eleven’ calls and more). The advertising spot is intended for television use and is expected to begin regular rotation from mid-September onward.

Ladbrokes Joins With Microgaming Poker Network to Stimulate Business

The Microgaming Poker Network is one of online gambling’s leading networks and Ladbrokes decision to join with their service is set to hold great rewards for devotees of the site. Through increased traffic and greater benefits, Ladbrokes plans to expand their tournament and cash game options for users of the poker client.

John O’Reilly, Ladbrokes Managing Director of Remote Betting and Gaming said the move to join Microgaming was a natural one for the company in that they are hoping to offer wider fare for members and stimulate growth. Through the partnership, Ladbrokes will be able to offer higher-stakes games as well as increase their potential demographic base and notoriety while maintaining their existing features. The company may have been motivated by a 6.4 percent decline in profits during the first half of 2008 but ultimately the move is a wise one which should increase the site’s popularity while allowing them the necessary movement to keep positive site elements intact. Customer service and brand-based franchising have been stated as being at the top of Ladbrokes agenda as they continue aiming for organic business growth.

Ladbrokes is already one of the premier online poker sites within the industry and their decision to join Microgaming may be just the push needed to put them on top in the near future. Players who use the site should be happy with the move and looking forward to additional content in the near future.
