From a company that derived its name from a signpost in Worcestershire, Ladbrokes has risen to become the largest bookmaking business in the UK.
It has led the way in many areas, including appointing the first female bookmaker in the early part of the 20th century when horseracing was the primary focus for those who enjoyed a wager. A somewhat controversial move, it proved highly successful and Ladbrokes was soon positioned as bookmakers to the gentry.
The bookmaker Uk Ladbrokes acquired its first outlet in 1962 and, soon after, fixed odds football betting made its appearance. In 1963 the bookmaker offered odds on the outcome of the Conservative Party leadership battle, which netted it a meagre £1,400 in profits. The general election of 1966, however, saw the figure rise to £1.6 million. Strategic mergers and acquisitions, as well as deregulations during the period 1970 – 1989 saw a diversification into property development, hotel operations and casino interests. Ladbrokes also began expanding internationally.
As of February 2011, Ladbrokes boasts 2,700 international outlets and over 1-million active online gaming enthusiasts.
