Ladbrokes Quick Call

Ladbrokes are the second sports bookmaker in Australia to release a feature on their website that allows for their customers to access sports betting on live sporting events.

William Hill first released the innovation that allows for punters to bet on live sports without communication with an operator last week.

The Ladbrokes feature is called QuickCall and it works a little bit differently to William Hill’s ‘Click to Call’.

Ladbrokes users will need to be using a computer that allows for your microphone to be enabled. The Ladbrokes feature digitally synthesizes your voice to allow them to make a bet on your behalf.

The QuickCall feature is available on Windows/MacOs Chrome 31+, Windows/MacOS Firefox 31+, Windows/MacOs Opera 27+ and Mobile device Android/Chrome. Unfortunately, the program is not running on the Ladbrokes app, however it will be soon.

Once you have registered an account, you can head to the sports betting page, which now allows you to bet on live sporting events. You will simply need to select on the odds of your choice and then follow the prompts to place your live bet.


You will then be required to fill in your stake amount, once you are happy with the stake you are making and the odds you are receiving then click on the Bet Live with QuickCall button and a phone call will be made using a synthetic voice.

A voice will then announce to you the bet you are placing and if you want to proceed with the bet then click on Confirm Bet.

The new process of placing live bets in Australia allows for the fastest and easiest way possible to bet on live sports.

Ladbrokes will be offering live betting markets on every NFL and AFL game and are even covering the NBA Playoffs with live betting.
