The reason I hadn't taken Ladbrokes up on its great welcome bonus is that they currently don't let Aussies play (update:
Australians now welcome), so I asked a mate from Austria to have a go, now this was his first casino whoring experience and I talked him through the doubts he had, here is what he had to say:
I signed up at Ladbrokes Casino
to play for the up to £50 Bonus and found out that they had a special offer for June/07 where they give you a 100% sign up bonus up to £100. The bonus is cashable after wagering 4 times the deposit. So I deposited £100 and started playing BJ
with 5 bucks hands.
I played 30 minutes and reached the wagering amount of £400 (4xD) and ended up at 125.5 After that I sent them a request to get the bonus and played accidently a 10 pound hand which I lost. Now I am waiting for the bonus which has to be added within 48 hours.
Now 40 hours after asking for the bonus I got the £100 bonus and cashed out.
