Ladbrokes is a British-based bookmaking firm that was established way back 1886. For more than a hundred years, Ladbrokes has delivered gambling services with trust and integrity. When Ladbrokes.com ventured online in the 90s, Ladbrokes online immediately thrived. Ladbrokes.com has since extended their online presence to include a mobile casino, bingo hall, and their exciting live dealer casino.
Ladbrokes Live Dealer Casino
The live casinos are constructed through a collaboration between an online casino brand and a land-based casino or studio. The brick and mortar casino provides the live dealers, and the online casino offers the cashier functions and serves as a proxy for the customer. The land-based casino or studio works with a software platform to provide the live video streaming across the Internet. Ladbrokes has partnered with two separate partners: Evolution Gaming and CWC Gaming.
The best benefit to having two partners comes down to more options for the player. It provides increased game and dealer selections. The option of live casino platforms provides a nice change of pace for Ladbrokes’ regular live casino customers, since each option offers a distinct atmosphere, staff of dealers, and available games. Nevertheless, the player only deals with Ladbrokes.com, so the entire experience is seamless.
Ladbrokes.com offers its live casino software in no download and in-client versions. The experience is consistent however, so the experience translates and remains intuitive. However, Evolution Gaming and CWC Gaming have distinct atmospheres.
For the purposes of the review, we spent time at both the Evolution Gaming and CWC live casinos. As mentioned, both casinos offer distinct atmospheres. Streamed from Latvia, Evolution has more than 40 gaming tables, uses Eastern European dealers and has a very traditional theme. CWC, on the other hand, has less games, has a more diverse dealer base and provides a more modern, Las Vegas-style atmosphere.
At both casinos, traffic is pretty high. Yet we never had to wait too long for a seat, even at CWC Gaming, where they have fewer tables available. We did prefer the fun and attractive dealers at CWC.
Located in Costa Rica, CWC Gaming use both European and Latino dealers, and their English was perfect.
At Evolution Gaming, which utilize mostly Latvian dealers, the accents are thicker but the girls are still attractive and professional!
The Ladbrokes Live Dealer Casino provides high-definition video streams at both locations. The HD video streams perform excellently, and allow a full screen video mode. The full screen video streaming delivers the greatest level of immersion. The GUI elements, such as graphical controls and chat window, are well integrated and take nothing away from the experience. Ladbrokes.com also provides a graphical mode, which uses a small video streaming window along with the standard graphical controls. This is convenient for times when an SD display is the only option because the graphical table is easier to read.
Ladbrokes Live Dealer Casino Games
Through the Evolution Gaming platform, Ladbrokes offers baccarat, blackjack, European roulette and French Gold roulette. French Gold Roulette provides the French-style betting options and has higher bet limits than the standard roulette games do.
With CWC Gaming, Ladbrokes.com provides baccarat, blackjack, European roulette and sic bo. The bet limits are similar across both platforms: baccarat and sic bo are $1 to $5,000; blackjack is $5 to $5,000; and roulette is $0.50 to $100,000. VIP limits are also available via application, and once approved, you can play the VIP limits at both Evolution and CWC Gaming.
