Ladbrokes Bookmaker Company Overview

The Ladbrokes brand name and its association with sports betting was born more than 120 years ago near the Ladbroke Hall in Worcestershire, England in the late 1800s. Ladbrokes is a proven powerhouse as a corporation accomplishing impressive business achievements outside of the gambling industry over the last 80 years. One example of Ladbrokes formidable business acumen was the acquisition of Hilton International (the spin off from Hilton Hotels Corporation which held the rights to the Hilton name in the US) in 1987 for £645 and sold all of its Hilton Holdings back to Hilton Headquarters USA in 2005 for £3.3billion. In the words of Cyril Stein ( Ladbrokes owner from 1956 to 1993) “I am not going to argue whether Ladbrokes are the largest bookmakers in the world. All I can say is that they are the best.”
