Ladbrokes is a bookmaking powerhouse. Originally a UK firm they now have 3 different betting shops in Australia (Ladbrokes, Bookmaker & Betstar). Having that kind of size means that they can afford to be generous with their promos, and in addition to a great sign-up offer they also have regular price-boosts and money-back deals. You even get the option to boost the odds on a race or event of your choice every day.
What's Good About It?
No wagering requirement on winnings. Usually, if your bonus bet wins, bookies will make you bet the amount of your winnings at least once before you can withdraw. This can be especially frustrating if you've had a win at decent odds on the horses or elsewhere. Not with this offer though. Place your bet, cheer on your pick, and withdraw your cash right away.
What's Bad About It?
It's based on your first bet rather than your deposit, so to get the full $250 bonus you need to place a $250 bet with your own cash. There's no minimum odds on your first bet though so feel free to stick it on Barcelona or Real Madrid.
