Ladbrokes is a name that is synonymous with gambling, both on the high street and online and this alone gives you a sense of security when choosing this site to play bingo at. Ladbrokes Bingo doesn’t let the well-known brand down and delivers from the moment you register. This continues right through to the withdrawal process and lives up to its tagline – ‘Fun at your fingertips’.
Ladbrokes is a brand that was established well before the introduction of online bingo, and the transition to online saw the good name maintained. Ladbrokes Bingo launched way back in February 2004 and at that point, the site was powered by the Virtue Fusion. It was when GVC purchased the then Cozy Games (now known as Electraworks) in 2017 that the writing was on the wall for a change in software.
The move took place in May 2020 and what you will now find is the same software that is used at powerhouses in the bingo world like Foxy Bingo.
With that said, the big name that is Ladbrokes doesn’t do things exactly the same as others using the Electraworks software. You’ll find a whole plethora of unique features and offers when you choose this site as the place to play online bingo.
|Welcome Offer||£30 bonus + 50 free spins when you deposit and spend £5|
|Best Deposit Methods||PayPal, Debit cards, Paysafecard, Trustly, Instant Bank Transfer|
A deposit and spend of £5 will soon get you started at Ladbrokes Bingo, as soon as you have done that you will need to wager £5 on bingo to unlock a fabulous £30 welcome bonus.
You have to accept the bonus via your Ladbrokes Bingo inbox (accessible from the top right-hand corner of the main site).
It is worth noting that some of the payment methods offered by the brand are excluded from receiving the new player bonus. Sadly, this includes PayPal and certain debit cards. For a full list, check the terms and conditions of the bonus on site.
Once you have completed the formalities, you will be able to play with your £30 bonus + 50 free spins on Starburst (with a £0.10 per spin).
There are wagering requirements attached to the bonus offered to new players but these are half of what is considered to be industry-standard. For Ladbrokes Bingo, these are just 2x the amount of the bonus received.
You do however have to have met the wagering requirements within 30 days or any bonus and pending winnings will be forfeited.
Withdrawals of any winnings from the bonus are only permitted when you have met all of the wagering requirements of the bonus received.
Ladbrokes offers a wide selection of different payment options for you to choose from. There is more to offer than just the standard debit cards.
PayPal, Paysafecard, and Trustly are all available to. The minimum deposit option available is £5.
When it comes to withdrawals you are able to process a cash out for as little as 1p! That’s a real bonus because whilst you may not want to withdraw an amount that small, you don’t have to wait to accrue a higher value amount.
Withdrawals are processed quickly and if you do so to PayPal, this is usually in your account within a few hours.
Debit card withdrawals take a little longer.
The promotions page at Ladbrokes Bingo is neatly set out to cover all the different gambling products that are available to their customers. There is a section for casino, poker, live casino, and of course, bingo.
Whilst the bingo promotions are not limitless, just three at the time of compiling the review (one of which was the welcome package), there are always new and exciting offers being introduced to the site regularly.
At the time of the review (October 2020) both of the promotions were time-limited. Whilst we have listed them here, these are just examples and may have changed by the time you visit the site:
- Takeaway Giveaway – each week in October you will earn draw entries dependent on the value of your bingo spend for a chance to win Just Eat vouchers.
- Big Bingo Things and Dabber Wins – up for grabs in this promotion was the chance to win a castle mini-break for six people, a murder mystery train experience for two, or one of 10 £50 cash prizes.
The Ladbrokes Bingo promotional page is one to keep a close eye on!
These are all just a little something extra to complement the staple bingo diet that you would expect from such a household name. There’s free bingo, jackpot games, progressive prizes, and much more to keep you coming back to the site.
Ladbrokes Bingo bonus codes are not something that are needed to enter specific promotions or to claim the welcome offer. However, like many sites online today, it is worth making sure that you can be contacted by the brand by either email or SMS as they have been known to offer a bonus code for a little something extra with your next deposit on occasion.
Should we find ourselves offered any bonus codes for this site, we will post them in this section of our review for you to use. Details of the code and terms and conditions will be listed.
Bingo and Slot Games
In the move from Virtue Fusion to Electraworks, some of the unique games were lost when it comes to bingo. However, what has improved in the move is the variety of game types now available.
When it comes to choice, there is plenty of it with the bingo selection of games with no less than four different game types, five if you count the two different 75 ball variants.
75 ball is available as pattern and multi-line games and then you have 30 ball for those that love a fast-paced game, 80 ball for the players who love a bit of the bingo hall online, and then your traditional 90 ball offering.
Cashout Bingo offers you something a little different from your 90 ball games. You have the option to ‘cashout’. When the game is in play, it will pause before the full house prize has been won and if you have just one number left to bingo, you can choose to cash out or take your chance on the next ball being the one that wins you the game.
Of course, as a gambling site that offers a variety of different properties, the choice of slots and instant win games is impressive to say the least. IGT, Eyecon, Slingo, Blueprint Gaming, Red Tiger Gaming, NetEnt, Rabcat, Microgaming, and many more are available.
Some of the slots are available to play in the same window as your bingo whilst others require spinning the reels in another browser.

Ladbrokes Bingo is operated by LC International Limited so sister sites to the brand include Coral Bingo and Gala Bingo.
If you are looking for other sites that use the Electraworks software to power their bingo, then some other big-name brands could be considered sister sites:
What sets Ladbrokes apart from the list above is that they have their own promotions and support.
Ladbrokes Bingo has been quite prolific in advertising their wares on television and over the years we have seen some pretty good commercials from them.
However, it has been quite some time since the focus of their advertising has been on bingo. You’re more like to see them on the small screen promoting their casino or sports betting rather than bingo.
That means that the Ladbrokes Bingo TV advert that we are showing here is one that appeared quite a few years ago. It’s a favourite from this brand that that saw bingo balls rolling down the street with the background music of Fun Fun Fun by the Beach Boys. This was back in September 2008!
Remember, the welcome bonus advertised in the above commercial is no longer valid.
Our Review Summary
Ladbrokes Bingo didn’t quite reach the heady heights of a 5-star rating but it has come pretty close with a 4.5.
We love that there is so much choice when it comes to the bingo offering, are equally as impressed with the low wagering requirements and quick withdrawal time scales. Interesting promotions, friendly chat hosts, and a trusted brand mean that you’re on to a good thing with Ladbrokes.
Sadly, we still think the Virtue Fusion offering was a better product overall.
