❓ Is Ladbrokes better than the TAB?
Yes, for almost every betting market Ladbrokes has better odds. Ladbrokes especially shines for racing fields and NZ and Australian sports markets so it's a great alternative betting site to the TAB NZ.
📱 Does Ladbrokes have a NZ app?
Yes. Like all the best NZ betting sites Ladbrokes has an Apple and Android app. The Apple app is available on the NZ app store but Google Play restricts betting apps from their store so the Android app can be downloaded directly from ladbrokes.com.au.
👍 Is Ladbrokes legal in New Zealand?
Yes. Ladbrokes is licensed in Australia and it is legal for New Zealanders to bet with offshore bookies like Ladbrokes. What is more, Ladbrokes has been in the betting game for over 120 years so Kiwis should feel extremely confident using Ladbrokes. Ladbrokes is as safe, reliable, secure and trustworthy as it gets.
🖥 What is the difference between ladbrokes.com.au and ladbrokes.com?
Ladbrokes.com.au is the Australian version of the Ladbrokes sportsbook. We recommend this site because it has more of a local focus to New Zealanders. The ladbrokes.com site is based in the UK and while New Zealanders can sign up, and use NZD on ladbrokes.com, there are no sign-up bonuses or ongoing promotions for New Zealand players.
🏇 Is Ladbrokes good for NZ racing bets?
There are not many online betting sites that offer better NZ, Australian and international gallops, trotting or greyhound racing odds and markets for NZ punters than Ladbrokes - so yes, Ladbrokes is a good choice for any Kiwi punter.
