Ladbrokespoker.com, launched just two months ago is proving so successful it

is to deal its millionth hand on Monday 22nd July.

'We never expected it to grow so big, so fast', said John O'Reilly, Managing

What makes online poker so different is that it operates on a multi-player

network basis. Players simply register with Ladbrokes from their own PC,

deposit funds and then join a game with other players from all over the


To date Ladbrokespoker.com has seen games such as Texas Hold'em, Omaha and

Stud played by poker fans from 68 countries. 'One of the best things', says

O'Reilly, 'is that if you are new to the game you can play for free and get

the hang of it before trying your luck at one of the tables.'

The service is now the biggest online poker service in Europe, with the

widest range of staking options available anywhere online including no-limit

poker. Players can purchase chips in up to 15 currencies without any

currency exchange costs, something no other poker service provides.

Ladbrokes currently offers Hold 'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 7-Stud, 5-Stud and

heads up varieties of online poker. New registrations are given $30 free

chips, subject to terms and conditions.

Ladbrokes will be rewarding the customer that receives the millionth hand -

who may find a little something extra in that winning pot!
