The battle for players between the big UK online gambling enterprises is set to continue.
Ladbrokes, which for many years has been a big player in the high street market, wants to continue promoting its online casino.
Last year they used an exciting TV advertising campaign which showed a huge lemur and a game of hide and seek. The advertisement offered new players a generous no deposit bonus of £25.
Although this was pretty much unheard of at the time, one of their main rivals, William Hill Casino, not to be out done, began offering a no deposit bonus of £30.
However, the battle goes on, because now Ladbrokes are using the TV advertisement again, but changing the no deposit bonus to £50.
Competitors will be seriously challenged if they want to top this offer. After all, the only aim of any online casino is to make a profit, so there must be a limit to this sort of bonus.
There appears to be no obvious catch to this latest offer, and of course, in this virtual world, there is nothing to stop players in New Zealand joining in the fun.
