Bet tracking

You will find a shop bet tracker which can be useful for any long term bets which you have placed as well as being good for anyone prone to losing things. Lose your bet slip… no problem, there is a virtual record of it on your Grid card account.

Cashout shop bets

Cashout, which began as an online betting feature can now be used for your shop bets too. Not those involving a game currently In play but if it is an accumulator bet and you are getting cold feet about the final leg, you can take your profit and run early but Cashing out online.

Shop Locator

If you find yourself away from home, and looking for a place to bet, there is a handy Ladbrokes shop locator on the app. Synched to google maps this device shows you where you are and where the nearest Ladbrokes shops to your current location are.

Ladbrokes The Grid Cashout

When you are in a Ladbrokes shop give the cashier your Ladbrokes Grid card (or virtual number) as you place the bet. This will mean that you can enter the number from the barcode on your betslip on the Ladbrokes website or the Gris app to track your bet, and if it is an Acca see the current value of your Cash out option. (This is not available for all bets)

You can Cashout using the Ladbrokes Grid app

Why My Ladbrokes The Grid Doesn’t Work?

There are a number of possible reasons why the Ladbrokes Grid Card may not work. Some of these reasons could be things such as:

  • The main Ladbrokes website may be down either for maintenance or because of an unforeseen error. Either way to get the latest info on that whilst you can contact them it is probably quicker to monitor their social media accounts, most likely Twitter, for ny details of an ETA for the site being back up.

  • It might be to do with the app you have installed, there may have been an upgrade which you were unaware of to cause the current version to stop working correctly. Visit either the app store or the play store and check if any updates are available.

  • There may be a problem with your internet connection or the wifi you are using. It is very cliche but turning the router on and off may help with this.

  • It could be a “fat fingered mistake” when you are entering the data from your betslip. Are you sure you are putting the correct numbers in? If it does not work the first time erase everything and go back to the start and try again.

Ladbrokes Grid Card App

The Ladbrokes Grid card app has a number of useful features that can be utilised by a Ladbrokes account holder. These include:

Bet Scanner

Using the Ladbrokes app on your smartphone to scan the barcode on your betslip you are taken to the Ladbrokes account page where all the bet details are displayed. You can see who you bet on, what the odds were, how much you staked and how much you stand to win. You can also on certain bets see how much the current cash out value is.

Bet Tracker

Very similar to the bet scanner feature only this time you monitor bets already added to your account, you can track all the details of the bet already listed above.

My Virtual Card

The virtual card has replaced the actual plastic card you used to get, and an advantage is that it is much less likely you will lose your phone compared to that real card. Other than that the two do pretty much exactly the same thing.

Acca and Cashout

You can use the app to see how your existing Acca bets are doing as the games are played and cash out early if you wish to (available on most but not all Acca bets).
