LadbrokesBeing one of the largest gaming groups in the UK and having a huge presence in the online casino, Bingo, sports betting and Poker, it was only a matter of time before Ladbrokes developed an app for playing Poker on mobile phones and tablets. Having been in business since 1886, Ladbrokes are also one of the oldest betting companies. Their years of experience has created high quality websites with hundreds of thousands of players.

Ladbrokes Poker is easily downloaded onto your mobile, but there are different ways of doing this depending on whether you have an Android or iPhone device.

Most Android phones and tablets are supported by the Ladbrokes mobile poker app, including popular models like the Samsung Galaxy, HTC Desire and Sony Ericsson X10 and X13, and any device running Android versions 2.2 (Frogeye), 2.3 (Gingerbread) or 3.1 (Honeycomb) as well as Adobe Flash (version 10 or higher), or Adobe Air version 2.6 is compatible. Many older mobile phone models can be upgraded to run this software by adjusting the settings.

One important point to note before you try to download the Ladbrokes mobile poker app is that you cannot create a new poker account via a mobile device. Thus, you must first create an account at the main Ladbrokes Poker website, and then download their mobile poker app to your mobile upon registering a real money account online. As there are no depositing options via the app, must additionally fund your account via the online software in order to play real money poker games on your mobile.

To get Ladbrokes Poker on your Android device, just go to the Mobile Poker page on the Ladbrokes website, and either text POKER to 86131. Alternatively, you can follow the link on the Ladbrokes mobile page or scan the QR code. Installing the mobile poker app is a simple process. Once the app is installed, simply enter your login details and you are ready to play.

Any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch device will run the Ladbrokes mobile Poker app, but the process to download the app is different. To download the Ladbrokes iPhone app, just follow the link to HTML5 Poker from the mobile Poker page on the Ladbrokes website. Just like their Droid app, you must establish and fund an online poker account via their web-based software before you can use the iOs poker app.

One advantage of working this way is that some mobile Poker apps only give you small bonus payouts, but by setting up your account on the desktop site, you get exactly the same bonuses and promotions as any other player. Currently that can be a 200% new player deposit bonus, up to £800. So deposit £20 when you first sign up to get an extra £40 to play with, or deposit £400 to get the maximum £800 bonus.

Once downloaded and signed in, playing Ladbrokes mobile Poker is just a matter of choosing your stake and buy-in level, which will bring up the right tables for you. To play at one of their tables, simply click ‘Join.’ You can also choose the Quick Seat option, which lets you select your stake and buy-in levels. The software automatically enters you into a game at those limits. The game will start for you immediately after the current hand is completed.

The games available on the mobile poker app vary in types of games. Limit, No Limit, and Pot Limit cash games are all available on your mobile in fun or real money modes. Once you start playing, you will see that the cards are displayed nice and clearly and the mobile poker graphics are of a good quality. With nice, easy to use control buttons, you can adjust your bets using the handy slider control. There are simple buttons at the bottom of the screen that allow you to Fold, Check, or Bet. All the mobile poker games are played with the same players from the main website, so it is not just mobile players that you are against. Thus, you have a full choice of tables, stakes, and games to play when you play mobile poker with Ladbrokes.

Downloading and using the Ladbrokes Poker apps are free of charge, but you should always check with your phone network to see what data charges may apply. It is also recommended that you play over a Wi-Fi link, as 3G links can be less reliable, and if you lose your connection during a game, you are cut off from the games. Ladbrokes sensibly advise that you first play in Fun mode, just to make sure that your area does not have any connection issues.
