Ladbrokes Poker Ranks #1 in the UK

Share this
Ladbrokes Poker recently announced that they have achieved the top slot in the U.K. online poker world. The #1 ranking on Hitwise was notched after the Ladbrokes Poker site received a record number of visits during the week that ended June 14. To top out at #1, Ladbrokes Poker racked up an impressive 19.5% of the market share which propelled the poker site to the top.

Ladbrokes Poker attributes the top ranking to the sites new make over. The new look was designed to specifically attract new players while giving a fresh perspective to their loyal existing members.

The site also now offers players three different software options for the poker room:

• 3-D version featuring a poker school, custom avatars and custom gestures.
• Instant play no download version for Web browsers.
• The popular classic version.

Commenting on the site, Ladbrokes Poker pro and World Heads-Up Champion Jeff "JaffaCake" Kimber says, “There has been a solid poker playing community at Ladbrokes for six years." He added, “The new website illustrates just how much the site has developed in such a short period of time. People often only think of Ladbrokes as the great high street bookmaker - but I'm proud to be a part of their poker business."

Ladbrokes Poker managing director, Ed Ihre, said “the poker site is putting in the foundations to create even faster growth. We have devised a marketing plan to make that happen and also started its biggest-ever player recruitment drive in other key European markets outside the United Kingdom.”

Next week more upgrades will be launched when Ladbrokes Poker plans to unveil their revamped classic poker software. Promised improvements include the ability to choose a preferred currency and multi-table play functions.

Another reason for last week’s boom in player activity was the site celebrating its billionth hand being dealt. To celebrate the milestone, Ladbrokes Poker hosted a huge freeroll where they gave away over $300,000 in World Series of Poker (WSOP) prizes. This massive event had players jamming the site, hoping to be playing when the billionth hand hit, so they would qualify for a seat in the freeroll. Through all of their massive WSOP promotions, Ladbrokes Poker boasts they will be sending more than 100 qualifiers to the Main Event. These lucky players have all won $14,000 prize packages that include a buy-in to the $10,000 Main Event plus $4,000 in cash for travel and accommodation expenses.

And, going on now at Ladbrokes Poker is their gigantic $20,000 Freeroll event!
