• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • There seems to be a problem with some alerts not being emailed to members. I have told the hosts and they are investigating.
  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting

    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

General Question on Betting at Ladbrokes


New to the forum and new to gambling at Ladbrokes.

I placed a bet at my local Ladbrokes on the US presidential election (Trump/Biden), and received a betting slip with a bar code on it. I don't have an on-line account.

My question is; how do you know if you've won, and when do you check?

There is nothing on the slip that tells you where or when to check.
I asked the guy behind the counter and he didn't know, as he didn't know anything about US politics.
I asked via the on-line chat function on Ladbrokes website the the person I was speaking to had no clue either and told me to 'search on Google'.

My understanding is that there are at least two US elections. A general election to decide the Democrat or Republican party winner (Nov 3), and then a presidential election to decide the president (Dec 14). That's as far as my knowledge goes on US politics. I'm assuming the above bet is for the latter as it names Trump and Biden.

Is there an official Ladbrokes page where they announce who they think the winner is? Is it published on the same link above?


P.S. I bet on Trump, even though I think the other guy would make a better president. Politics seems to be all about showmanship these days.

I would guess that once AP call the election "official" it will be safe to cash out.
