Ladbrokes Deposit Guide

Ladbrokes Deposit Guide - Methods and Options for 2024

Last Updated: 9 April 2024, Author:

Topping up the balance of your Ladbrokes account can be done with all of the most popular payment methods. This includes PayPal, debit card and cash via PaySafe and in Ladbrokes shops using Ladbrokes Grid. The deposit limit for all payment methods is £2000, and funds transfer to your balance instantly.

Ladbrokes allows you to have up to 3 different payment methods active across a rolling 30-day period. This limit does not apply to cash deposits in shops or pre-paid cards. When withdrawing your funds, you will usually need to use a method that has already been used to deposit. If the speed of withdrawal is important then you can check Ladbrokes withdrawal time scales here.

When using a Ladbrokes Promo Code to sign up for an account, check the terms and conditions before selecting a deposit method. Some methods may exclude you from receiving the bonus.

Debit Card

£5 is the minimum Debit Card deposit.

Visa, Mastercard, and Maestro debit cards can be used to deposit between £5 and £2000 to your Ladbrokes account.

Funds will be immediately available, provided your bank authorises the transaction.

Apple Pay

Apple Pay is available for iOS users only.

Any debit card registered to your Apple Wallet can be used to deposit funds to your Ladbrokes account if you are using a compatible iOS device.

With Apple Pay, you can register up to 8 cards to your device, giving you additional payment options, but credit cards cannot be used to fund your account.


The minimum deposit amount with PayPal is £10.

PayPal is a convenient way to fund your account but does have a £10 minimum deposit, which is slightly higher than other methods available.

You cannot use credit cards linked to your wallet to fund a Ladbrokes account when using your PayPal account.

PaySafe Card

The minimum PaySafeCard deposit amount is £5.

PaySafe is a pre-paid card for making internet transactions that can be purchased at several outlets.

If you select PaySafe as a deposit method, you will be redirected to the PaySafe website, where you can either log in to your PaySafe account or enter the 16-digit pin found on your card.

Google Pay

Deposit from £5 with Google Pay.

Ladbrokes also accepts Google Pay, so Android users can take advantage of this e-wallet capability on compatible devices.

Once your transaction has been confirmed with your payment provider, the funds will be immediately available in your Ladbrokes account. You can store up to 3 payment methods on your account in a rolling 30-day period.

Unavailable Payment Methods

  • E-wallets (other than PayPal) - If you are a user of an alternative e-wallet such as Neteller, Skrill, Much Better or Rapid Transfer, you won't be able to use this at Ladbrokes.
  • Credit Cards - UK gambling regulations do not permit the use of Credit Cards. You can use a credit card to deposit in other countries such as India and the US.
  • Cash - It used to be possible to deposit cash in a Ladbrokes store, but this option is no longer available.

Ladbrokes Deposit FAQs

Ladbrokes limits all deposits to a maximum of £2000 per transaction. Customers will also have a monthly deposit limit, and any deposits over this amount will be rejected. You can choose to reduce your standard deposit limit.

If your deposit has been accepted and funds have left your account, check the deposit timescales to determine how much processing time is required.
