Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - trap challenge harlow towcester

I last night placed a bet in one of yr shops in wrekenton gateshead on the trap challenge harlow Towcester trap 2 93 pound win 9/2 at lunchtime today I sent my wife to collect my winnings of 255.75 at another ladbrokes in South Shields at 1 pm.
They said firstly that the dog did not run ? It's a trap challenge does yr staff not know how a trap challenge works 30 min later still not done it rang customer services on 4 occasions I was promised it would be done. The shop at wrekenton were adamant that the dog did not run ( staff would do not have a clue what they doing it really beggars belief )
Then my partner trails to Newcastle to try sort it and at 3.20 pm it is finally settled. This is simply not good enough it was off the day before and then it's took 2 hours 20 min for the penny to drop that there was actually money off it . Trailing around from south Shields to Newcastle to sort it out arrogant staff who talk to you as though your thick and stupid this is simply not good enough and how you employ people like this I really dnt know . I will never go back to that shop again never . The bet number was 3702 [protected] . I'm angry it's taken this long I used to work in a betting shop a few years in William Hill wen u had to settle bets in your head not like today all done on computer . These people either ain't been trained properly or there just thick and in the wrong job but if u think it's acceptable then fine I certainly don't. Would someone contact me on [protected]

On the 7th of this month on my account Liam98 I lost $500 because the Ladbroke app system was having problems it kept adding previous bets that I made to the slip and the screen was all over the place and finally it zoomed in on multi bet which I didn't realise at the time and used. Then just before the game finished I checked and saw the problem and sent a...

Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - staff at woodend ladbrokes aberdeen

Have been going to this bookie for 15 years now and always had good staff but now they are awful they are always on the mobile phones always making mistakes when putting a bet on and always give u the wrong amount back too. Susan who is meant to be in charge is bad mannered and no doing her job right and always eatting or smoking. Lee is a waste of time as always on his phone we his head down. June is always helpful n polite. The other guys who work there are waste of time. Bring back Jeff as he was the man. Surely if a ladbrokes undercover manager walked in they all be sacked. Shocking service. Get it fixed or I'll video the customer service and show it to everyone. Plus the shop closes early. Meant be open to 7 I walked up to the door at 6.40 and it was locked. need to find out who the reginonal manager is as will show him the videos and if he doesn't do anything I will go higher and higher if no sorted in one month I will be putting videos up

Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - ladbrokes

I have a grid card and have been waiting 6 weeks to receive cash I have won. I was told by one advisor we used wrong e mail address so we rectified that and gave them another e mail address so we could send passport and proof of postal address. We have sent this 6 times all 6 times received e mail straight back saying someone will be in touch. Still waiting, another call tonight to be holding on for awhile then to be told that letter did not have a date on it although it clearly stated my name and address along with my passport, and guess what there was a date on it! When asked caller his name he told me his first name but did not need to tell me his surname! Never heard so much nonsense. All I want is the money I am due and I will be taken my service elsewere! Customer service is absolutely horrendous.

Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - customer service

I walk into Ladbrokes in Eastbourne winston cres, Bn23 6nl at 7.30 pm 3/5/17. I place a bet on the champions league final. She toke my ticket and scanned it. I then asked about the prom in the window and she then explained it in a rude manor. I then asked if i could then put that on as well. She got up off of her chair and shouted at me " WRITE IT ON A SLIP THEN" I then turned around and walked out without doing so because I could not believe the way I was spoken to. As a customer I do not think I should be spoken to like this.

Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - gaming problem

i have played games and deposited quite a lot of money in the past and also won a lot of times with the games department and the scratch card department. The gold £1 scratch card states that there is a 4.14 chance of winning today at 21.50pm i spent £9 and didn't win anything. And also a time before which will be on my account this happened. I know gaming is down to the player but i was disappointed with what your game actually states, and therefore this is not true. Could you please get back intouch with how this happend. thankyou.

Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - collecting winnings

I went into Ladbrokes on Kingsheath high street birmingham. AFTER putting in £200 to a machine i got up to £360. I was told by the guy it would be 5 minutes before he could give me the winnings in cash. So I said thats fine. I then had to wait 15 minutes and still no money there were people in queues so I couldnt ask, so i put in £20 of money i had in cash in a machine ended up losing that then another £15 then after nearly 20 minutes of waiting i got my £360 cash and lost all that in the machine. I would never have lost all that money if i didn't have to wait 20 minutes twirling my thumbs feeling anxious. I want the money i lost back at least as i feel its disgusting that they purposely made me wait so i would end up gambling more money. it was only 360 he could have emptied a machine for me on the spot

sunday 21st may 2017 I selected football teams from the Sunday Goal Crazy betting slip, both teams to score, when checking each teams final score it became apparent that 4 of the 6 games I had chosen were actually played on Saturday 20th May 2017. I would like to request a full refund for this transaction, the receipt number is 1548 [protected]. I was very disappointed with this situation.

Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - phone app

For the past few weeks I have been unable to view my Accas under the my Acca tab on the app. I receive the error message check internet connection. I'm on WIFI and all my other apps are fine.

Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - tom richard todd

I put a £50 bet on Arsenal v Man City. Both teams to score Arsenal to win, which Arsenal did win 2-1. When I went to collect my £250 winnings I was told I hadn't won as it was not within the 90 minutes. I couldn't believe it, as nothing like this has ever been mentioned before, and if I had known this I wouldn't have put the bet on. As far as im concerned, BOTH TEAMS SCORED AND ARSENAL WON, SO OBVIOUSLY I'M DISAPPOINTED AND ANNOYED AS I FEEL I'VE BEEN ROBBED, AND £250 IS A LOT OF MONEY.

It's pretty clear in Ladbrokes T&C, more specifically the very first paragraph:

"All football bets will be settled on 90 minutes play (also referred to as Full-time and normal time). This denotes the period of play which includes time added by the Referee for injuries and other stoppages. This does not include scheduled extra time, or Penalty shoot-outs, if played"

"In matches where penalty shoot outs or extra time are due to take place, all bets are settled on 90 minutes unless an Outright price is specifically requested and confirmed at the time the bet is placed"

Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - winnings

After speaking to numerous amounts of people from Ladbrokes I'm now disgusted at how they have treated my problem.
Friday evening (approx) I played on the roulette with 50p, I won from this £100.
Monday evening, I played the slot machine, Cake off, taking my winnings up to £160.
Early Tuesday morning, 2:30am, I played Man Of Steel slot machine, taking my winnings to £248.
The next day I had an issue logging into my account and when I finally got access my balance was £109.
After speaking to 3 people on live chat I decided I was getting nowhere. Also whilst speaking to "Riley" on the live chat I was logged out of my account numerous times, and when finally getting back into my account my balance was now £0.
"Riley" couldn't be bothered to help, so a lady "Lorainne" took over and questioned what I had last played. I answered these honestly and she passed the information onto "the relevant department ", my balance then appeared as £110, then again dropped to £101 and the last time I logged into the account before it was "temporarily closed" my balance was £98!
After being told I would be contacted back asap about this it took me to call numerous times to get an update. To be told "Miss Grundy, you have been placing bets on your account so the reason your balance has gone down is your own fault", obviously I was gobsmacked as I hadn't been able to access my account without getting logged out every 2 minutes! Now I have been told that I will receive an email, which will need me to admit to the reason why my balance decreased, tell them it's my fault, and to send in pictures of my ID and utility bill (again) and copies of the front and back of my card! The man on the phone couldn't give me a good enough reason for this!
He also said to me, once I have admitted it was me who spent this money then they will have to decide if they open the account again for me and let me have the balance of £98. All sounds a bit suspicious doesn't it?
Would I BOTHER for such little amount of money ?! I'm absolutely disgusted at how Ladbrokes has gone about this and spoken to me, it's all an absolute SCAM and this is because I hadn't put any money into the bets in the first place!

Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - very bad customer service - ladbrokes harrow weald

On the 18th April 2017 at 9: 35 pm I had tried to open the door at Ladbrokes Harrow Weald, HA3 5EQ. The door had been shut whilst it clearly said outside on the side of the glass door that it is open until 10pm. The lady behind the counter could see me waiting and did not decide to open the door. I stood outside for a good 5 minutes that couldve been used inside the bookmakers to place more bets. Finally, she pressed the buzzer to open the door, but Iwas shouted at straight away as I walked towards the machine to give the lady the money I wanted to put onto the machine. She was horrible to me in every way. Very Bad customer service. She was an asian Lady in her 30s-40s. Worst cudtomer experience I've had from Ladbrokes

Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - store/online customer service

Username - leehenrymcguire_95

Hi there, how long roughly will it take for my documents and account to be unlocked so I can lift funds from the shop. I had already gave proof of ID and also my Id check had been successful when creating my account. I have also already collected money from a store and shown proof of identity. This issue has caused me stress and hassle. I have wasted my time walking too the store yesterday. I had work to attend half an hour after approaching the store and was told I had too wait until they called customer service as they did not know why they could not withdraw the money to then be told my account was locked for now and I had to send in proof of ID again. I was 35 minutes late for work due too this issue also. I also did not receive any email confirmation regarding my account being locked which is appalling customer service. I would like my account unlocked ASAP so that I can lift the £50 out of my account and also compensation regarding this issue as I am a good customer with ladbrokes and I am very very let down with the way I've been treated.

Thank you. Lee.

Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming - betting grand national

I put on three bets with ladbrokes glasgow in argyll st at the entrance to central station
I gave the cashier called Rebecca 2 special grand national slips 1 had a £2 e/with on one for Arthur. .. and a slip for 5 horses ...selections 50p e/w... definitely red . One for Arthur. Sapphire during rheu .the last samurai and views lion rouge ... I also gave her a noreal blank slip with a combination tricast a 10p e/w for 4 horses she charged me £12.40. I didn't check my receipassword and when I was back at the house realised she had put through my 50p e/with bets through twice so I am asking what bets would have been put on my original grand national slips or my receipts as this could mean I have been charged £1 too much to lose £15 ... I was also unclear about a combination e/w tricast .. for 4 selections I had in my mind it was 24 bets then e/w would be 48 bets I may be wrong about this and maybe that is why I didn't notice my receipts ..we're wrong I hAve a witness ...my husband was with me and as I used to work with ladbrokes many years ago betting hasn't changed that much I put on bets for him ... it was his bet that was the £2 e/with bet and as I said the special grand national slip I handed over was marked properly could you sort this out for me please ...
