Ladbrokes is a well-established British bookmaker, with many land-based betting offices. They recently left their stand-alone poker room to merge with Microgaming. This merger has boosted the size of their player pool which was a crucial thing for their operations since they were previously quite small.
They also recently began accepting customers from Germany.

Ladbrokes holds some really nice promotions. They send players to the WSOP and on board their annual Poker Cruise.
Their Poker Player Club rewards players for accumulating points at their real-money tables. Earn enough points each month and participate in freerolls with prize pools of €1,500 and up. Points can also be redeemed for real-money tournament buy-ins.
Ladbrokes is on a decently-sized network, so they have some pretty good tournaments. The €100k guaranteed €50 rebuy event on Sundays is very popular. Their sit-'n'-gos generate a good amount of interest at the smaller stakes.
The software is smooth and easy to use. They have made improvements to it recently to make it even more user-friendly than it already was.
Ladbrokes games are about average in terms of difficulty. Shorthanded no-limit hold'em is by far the most popular game played at this site.
