Ladbrokes launches anonymous poker

old shufflingLadbrokes are one of the old dogs of gambling in the United Kingdom. Along with William Hill and Coral they’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt, and can always tell you how good it was back in the day. Ladbrokes can even claim to have been around when Queen Victoria was – and not a lot of people can do that. It shouldn’t be surprising when one of these three manage to come up with something hip and new for the market but you still don’t expect it. They couldn’t just stay in the dank world of street corner bookies forever could they now?

With that in mind the Ladbrokes poker site have introduced a new innovation for their customers. will have a feature under which player aliases and avatars are hidden from their competitors. The feature is entitled Anonymous Tables and does exactly what it says on the tin.

Head of poker at Ladbrokes, Kate McLennan, commented: “We are really excited about this launch. Never before have poker players been able to play without other players knowing who they are. This brings an added element to the game for people whose playing style maybe recognisable.

“For those new to the game, it is an opportunity to try some different moves without getting a reputation because players will simply never know who they are playing against.”

Ladbrokes will be hoping this arrests a decline in poker revenues on their site.
