Saturday evenings at 7pm on 6, 13 and 20 January 2024, players can head over to Ladbrokes to test their general knowledge in the Trivia Showdown for a chance to win a share of a guaranteed £500 cash prize pool.

Brainboxes and boffins take note – your winnings will be credited as cash. There are no wagering requirements!

How it works

Ladbrokes runs its general knowledge quiz once a week, on Saturday evenings, with participation completely free. You’ll be able to access it through the ‘Live Casino’ section of their website.

The Showdown is a multiple-choice quiz with 10 questions, and you’ll be up against the clock. Answering each question correctly means you’ll progress to the next. The full game lasts around 15 minutes.

You can expect a broad range of questions, covering various topics – so it’s worth taking part no matter what your specialist subject is.

When you reach the end of the quiz and then answer the 10th question correctly, you’ll earn a guaranteed share of the £500 prize pot.

Terms and conditions

The terms and conditions for this promo are pretty straightforward and relaxed.

The quiz kicks off at 19:00 UK time on the dot each Saturday evening, finishing on 20 January 2024, so make sure you’re logged on in good time and ready to go.

In terms of eligibility, the Trivia Showdown promo is open to all players aged 18 or over who hold a verified Ladbrokes account, and can view the promo under the ‘Promotions’ tab.

European players are welcome to take part too, with the currency conversion rate being 1 GBP to 1 EUR. A list of restricted countries can be found on Ladbrokes’ site.

The £500 prize pool is to be split evenly between all qualifying players (everyone with full marks), so your slice may not be huge, but it is guaranteed.

Winnings come with no wagering requirements attached, so they’re yours to spend as you like. They’ll be credited to your account within 24 hours, and can then be withdrawn or wagered. The minimum withdrawal limit is just £5, or £0.01 if you have a Ladbrokes Grid Card!

The Trivia Showdown is completely free to play, and you don’t need to make a deposit or to have made a deposit in the past.

Players need to remain present and responsive for the duration of the game. It’s live so you’ll need to make sure you’re on time. 


Ladbrokes may be best known for its sportsbook betting, but it also has a comprehensive casino with loads of slots from high-end developers, a selection of exclusive titles, a solid range of bingo rooms, and plenty of other table games and game shows. There's also a well-equipped live casino section.

It’s also home to a healthy community of players, particularly bingo enthusiasts, and has a progressive approach to banking and customer service. A prime example of this approach is the Ladbrokes Grid Card, which enables players to earn points and withdraw instantly with no minimum limits.

Yet another of the many great things about Ladbrokes is the plethora of promos that it offers…

Welcome bonus

You’re probably already aware of Ladbrokes, but if you’re not yet an account holder, then this could be a good reason to join.

The current Ladbrokes welcome bonus is well worth taking advantage of, especially if you're a bingo fan – players who deposit and spend just a fiver on bingo tickets are rewarded with a £25 bonus and only 2x wagering.

Here at No Wagering, we obviously prioritise wager-free promos, but there's also a lot to be said for low-wagering promos. Ladbrokes know the importance of fairness and how to take care of their players, which is why their new customer bonus comes with a very reasonable 2x requirement. 

Other promos

Once you’ve claimed your welcome bonus and tested your general knowledge, there’s plenty more to keep you occupied. Ladbrokes has no shortage of promotions and events, which span the various categories of the site and often involve low or no wagering requirements!

For instance, there are free-to-play game show contests, free bingo games with £5k cash prize pools, and a daily instant spin mini-game which can grant free sports bets, bingo tickets, free spins and cash prizes.

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a trivia buff, then consider paying a visit to Ladbrokes on Saturday and tackling the quiz. In fact, even if you don’t, it’s still worth a shot as there’s nothing to lose!
