After launching down under 2013, Ladbrokes quickly rose to become one of the most widely used betting sites in Australia. At a time when multiple new players were launching into the market, Ladbrokes leveraged their racing heritage to offer Australian punters a cutting edge betting experience which has gone from strength to strength over the past 10 years.
Ladbrokes is owned by global gambling giant Entain (who also operate the Neds, Betstar and bookmaker.com.au brands in Australia), however still maintains local operations in Brisbane which shows in their extensive previews & coverage of Australian races and sports.
For us, the best features of Ladbrokes are their depth of in game markets across AFL & NRL, wide range of payment methods (PayPal is a big drawcard), great odds and an array of live streaming options.
Whether you’ve had a poor experience with one of Australia’s other corporate bookmakers and are looking for a replacement bookie, or perhaps you’re just venturing into the world of online betting (and are of legal age of course) – Ladbrokes is one of, if not the best betting sites available in Australia.

The Ladbrokes app has come a long way since its early iterations and has now earned a rightful place at the top of our betting app ratings.
With a rating of 4.6/5 on the App Store from over 46,000 reviews, the Ladbrokes app is one of the most popular betting apps in Australia and is free to download for both Apple and Android devices.
We’re big fans of the simplicity of the Ladbrokes App layout which is a welcome relief when compared to some of the other larger bookmakers in Australia. There’s clearly been a significant amount of UX and UI work done in the background to ensure that even first time users are easily able make a deposit, find the sporting or racing event of their choice and quickly place a bet.
You’ll find all the same form guides, runners comments and event previews in the app as you’ll find on the Ladbrokes website – providing the same comprehensive betting experience with the convenience and speed of a mobile app.
