How to Bet on Cricket at Ladbrokes

Once on the main Sports page of the Ladbrokes site, a sidebar listing sports covered is listed alphabetically on the left-hand side of the page. It is possible to select specific sports as a ‘Favourite’, which will then appear at the top of the list every time you long into your account.

Clicking on the cricket link reveals a list in the centre of the page with the various cricket events and competitions currently being covered by Ladbrokes. Selecting any of these shows the various types of bet being offered for that event (e.g. Series Result, Match Betting, Team Specials, Player Specials etc.) Selecting one of these reveals a selection of markets from within that group, and the complete list of markets in that grouping can be revealed by clicking on an ‘Other Markets’ tab.

Click on the odds in any given market and that bet will be moved to the virtual betting slip to the right of the screen. The slip will show any available combination bets (doubles, trixies etc.), and can be confirmed once logged into your account. Odds for all markets can be displayed in fractional, decimal or American style.

Cricket Betting Markets at Ladbrokes

Ladbrokes has an enormous range of markets for cricket betting. A one day match may have as many as 60 or 70 markets available, although many of these are simple player markets repeated for each batsman in both teams. There may be a market for how many sixes a player will hit, for example, and this will be available for six batsman from each side. Other markets could include highest partnership, first over runs, or man of the match.

Live betting is also extensive with Ladbrokes. As well as standard live markets such as total runs, batsman runs and method of next dismissal, Ladbrokes offers over-by-over and ball-by-ball markets, such as total runs in the following over, or whether a four/six will be scored from a specific ball in the next over.

Depositing and Withdrawing Funds From Ladbrokes

Ladbrokes offers a wide variety of methods for depositing and withdrawing funds.

Funds can be deposited online using a debit or credit card, or via one of several online payment services (PayPal, ClickandBuy, Neteller, Moneybookers). Funds can also be paid online using a prepaid Ukash card. Other methods for depositing funds that take slightly longer are by bank transfer, by cheque, or by direct cash deposit at a Ladbrokes shop. The minimum deposit amount is £10.

Withdrawing funds can be done using all of the above methods, except Ukash, which is a deposit only card.

There is a handy comparison table in the help menu, listing all deposit and withdrawal methods, and specifying how long each takes to process and any minimum amounts that apply.

Features of the Ladbrokes Site

The Ladbrokes site is clear and easy to use. One nice feature is the use of the Cricket Scorecard for live matches, which shows the scorecard, ball-by-ball commentary, player profiles and so on in a separate pop-up window. Ladbrokes also has a comprehensive news section, with information and reports on the latest cricket news and betting markets.
