Ladbrokes Poker Lobby
If you haven’t already, click here to download and install Ladbrokes Poker.
Now that you’ve already installed the Ladbrokes Poker download, let’s learn how to use this software!
Ladbrokes Poker offers excellent graphics, smooth animations, and an overall fun and gratifying poker experience.
It all starts with the Ladbrokes Poker Lobby where you can peruse and find the right poker game for you.
The Lobby directory categorizes games by Speed Poker, Cash Tables, Sit & Go, and Tournaments.
Within each category you can find different tables by stakes, game type, number of players, average pot size, percentages of players entering pre-flop, and the number of hands played per hour. There are also multiple currencies being used and that’s shown in the stakes column.
The Ladbrokes Poker tables have some customizable features such as a four colour card option and a mini table view option.
For poker table size, you can pick between 3 choices – regular, standard, or Mini Table.
You can multi-table up to 16 tables with the Mini Table option. A 1024x768 can display 4 simultaneous poker tables, and you can show much more if you run at a higher resolution.
The screenshot to the left shows 16 tables being played simultaneously with the Mini Table option. You have the ability to arrange the tables however you like.
Ladbrokes Poker allows you to switch between tables quickly and easily so you can keep up with the multi-table action.
To turn on the Mini Table option, visit the “Options” menu and to go back to the standard sized table, just re-click the same button.
Ladbrokes Poker Cash Game
In the Poker Lobby you will see that cash games are available in several different currencies.
When you visit a table, you will see that everyone is playing in the currency of that particular poker room. If you want to play on a poker table that is a different currency than your account, a dialogue box will pop up displaying the currency exchange if you choose to take a seat.
Ladbrokes Poker Widget Bar
When you take a seat at a Ladbrokes Poker table, you will see a widget bar on the right side of the table.
The Widget Bar provides options and tools you can use while playing at this table such as changing the the theme of the table, playing casino mini games, viewing the Tourney Lobby, and accessing the Ladbrokes news feed.
Four Colour Deck
If you are playing multiple tables or even a single table, it is often easier to play your hand by turning on the four colour deck option. This allows you to immediately differentiate between Hearts and Diamonds, and Clubs and Spades.
Ladbrokes Poker offers other functions such as keyboard shortcuts. Hot keys allow you to easily bet, raise, fold, call and check!
Player notes, buddy list, and the hand history replay tool are other great poker features at your disposal.
