Ladbrokes offers bonus bets to customers following Cup outage

Ladbrokes bonuses Melbourne Cup

A DISASTROUS outage on Melbourne Cup day for online bookmaker Ladbrokes has seen the company hand out a multitude of bonus bets to their customers.

In a gesture of good will from Ladbrokes, customers that were impacted by Tuesday’s events have been issued bonus bets, reportedly of varying amounts.

  • Ladbrokes elected to get on the front foot following Tuesday’s outage, which saw major technical difficulties on both mobile and desktop sites impact multiple online bookmakers.

    The interruptions, which also impacted online bookmaker Sportsbet, finally took to Twitter to apologise, posting: “Punters, sorry we let you down. We hope you still managed to have a good Cup Day.”

    Sportsbet is yet to announce any bonus bet offers to their customers.

    The move by Ladbrokes is sure to make a positive impact on punters, who were threatening to leave in their droves following the outage.
