Ladbrokes Poker Android Review
Welcome to our Ladbrokes Poker Android Review. A member of the Microgaming poker network, Ladbrokes benefits from their talented development team and are one of the newest poker rooms to offer poker to Android users. Ladbrokes is a hugely respected name in gambling having been a fixture on English high-streets for over 100 years. They’ve made a good transition to the online marketplace and now offer poker, bingo, and caisno games as well as their traditional niche of sports betting. They’re certainly one of the most trustworthy brands in the online gaming sphere.
Ladbrokes Poker App
The Ladbrokes poker app is a downloadable software package, rather than an in-browser offering. In our experience the downloadable clients generally run much smoother and have better animations than the in-browser versions. The sign-up process is a little complicated in that you can’t create an account from within the app, so the first thing you have to do is visit the Ladbrokes site to create an account for your self. Then, when your account is set-up you need to point your browser at mobile.ladbrokes.com/poker to get the app. Alternatively you can text POKER to 86131 (UK only) and you will receive an SMS with a download link.
From there you simply need to install the software on your phone. Be sure to enable the installation of non-marketplace apps in your settings or you won’t be able to install the software. The app is only compatible with certain versions of Android, and if your phone doesn’t support Adobe Air then you won’t be able to install it. One phone that is quite popular but doesn’t support most Android apps is the Samsung Galaxy Ace. For the Ladbrokes app to work, your phone needs to have the following specs:
- Version 2.2.x (Froyo)
- Version 2.3.x (Gingerbread)
- Version 3.1.x (Honeycomb)
- Flash Player version 10.1 or higher
- Air version 2.6.x
Ladbrokes Android Poker Games
Like most apps, Ladbrokes currently only offers cash games to Android users. The rumours are that tournaments are coming soon, but for now you’ll have to be satisfied with cash action up to the €1/€2 level.
Bonuses and Promotions
Ladbrokes offers one of the most generous welcome bonuses in online poker. New players who make a real money depsoit are eligible for a 250% bonus up to £800/€1000. The bonus is released in 5 increments so you can continuously earn as you play and it will be credited straight to your bonus account. No matter whether your bonus is just a few £/€ or the maximum amount, you have 60 days to clear it. As soon as you deposit you’ll be enrolled as a member of Ladbrokes VIP club which entitles loyal customers to lots of benefits like freerolls and trips to Las Vegas.
Ladbrokes have a great reputation and their Android app comes with pretty good software. A committed development team means that the app will be continually improved so we look forward to seeing the improvements they make over the coming months.
