    Posted: 12 Oct 2017 at 7:58pm
Did anyone like me today receive the offer from LADBROKES by both email and SMS offering match of 150% of your next deposit up to $200 in bonus bets.

I proceeded with my deposit of $200 understanding the offer to imply that by depositing $200 that a max of 150% in bonus bets would equate to $300.

When I spoke to LADBROKES they said no it was only $200 in Free bets but I explained wouldn't that then be an offer to match 100%?

Am I understanding this wrong as 150% of $200 is $300 and that above is how they worded id.
Thoughts or has this occured to anyone else today?Angry

I think you best give the exact text of the offer, to get a reasonable response.

Up to $200. Looks straight forward.
Deposit $140 and get $200 in Free Bets, not $210.
I started with nothing and still have most of it left

It is ambiguous, it could be construed as the bonus bets not exceeding $200, but for that to apply, you would deposit $133.33 to get it, which is a decidedly strange amount to deposit. Still, you can't complain about getting an equivalent amount as bonus bets.

It should have terms and conditions hidden somewhere at the bottom of the page in print too small to read

My very basic maths suggests 150% of $200 = $300 so I'd've fallen for it too, had I had a spare $300 Confused

I assume the bonus bets don't return the stake ? Or no ? Pretty good deal whichever way, but as has been pointed out before on the forum, if they don't return the stake, it is wiser to not back short odds with your bonus bets. A bloke rang me from Crownbet offering up to $300 bonus bets for a $300 deposit, which surprised me as that account has made a bit of money.

This is why I contacted them as I often get deposit bonuses pretty much 2-3 times a month up until all of last month then they come out with this one which was different as usually the wording is-

I hadn't bet with them all of a month as last time I asked what specials they had this is after winning $30k on my Pacer THREEPENNYOPERA a few months ago and huge odds and withdrew the moolah.

deposit upto a maximum of $200 and receive 100% in bonus bets. THATS THERE NORMAL OFFER.

I have emailed them and asking to escalate it as the wording is incorrect hence my point, they made the error not me!

The wording is ambiguous, it can be read either way. If there was a comma after $200, it would be more likely you had a strong case.

It is just a trap on words as scamanda put it ...   UP to $200. nothing over.
I received a Ladbrokes text which said ...     Bonus up to $500 , equal to your first bet.
   So to get the 500 your first bet had to be $500.

The last gift bonus I took out was for $750..      I backed a winner and then had to turn my whole account over before I was eligible to withdraw.
The unders I had to accept ( compared to betfair ) didn't have them too far behind when I withdrew $2000, a few weeks later.

Not sure how you got it wrong to be honest. It clearly says UP TO $200 in Bonus Bets.
It didnt say up to $300 in Bonus Bets

Previous offers read 100% deposit match upto a maximum of $200 so therefore I would and have received 200 in bonus bets. this was part of my complaint to management just then.

its the principal of the matter to be blunt, the corporates sux and I dont know how many times I have been rorted by taking odds the previous night to have so many dedcutions taken out its ridiculous but thats another matter, good luck folks. happy punting.

Wording says "up to $200 in bonus bets". Nothing unclear about that to me. I would have deposited $133.34 and not a cent more.

These offers are very generous. Take advantage of them, at the very least you will lose less using them. Even the TAB has been dragged into it. People that whinge about the corps are born whingers, having a relapse.

Spot on. It's basically free money. A bonus bet that doesn't return the stake if it wins is worth approx 40% of face value generally. Easy money.

2 weeks ago Ladbrokes gave me a $500 deposit match - the $500.00 was free bets only however I was not complaining.
If your hands aren't shaking you haven't put enough on.

the offer read 150% not 100% upto $200. most are not understanding the wording, its very tricky how they word the offer should be straight and simple such as offer upto a" maximum deposit of $200 for 100% in bonus bets" equating to $200 in bonus bets 
that clearly is different than offering 150%.

For those that seem to think how could I not understand it I have been backing horses for 35 horse and am very aware of punting.

I even provided there previous offers as set above, they worded this offer entirely different and its not a correct way in wording the offer.
