LeoVegas is a relatively new player on the gambling scene, having launched in 2013 but has quickly established itself as one of the leading online casinos and sportsbooks.
It primarily markets itself as a mobile gaming experience but can be used equally well on the desktop version. It is perhaps best known for its ubiquitous lion featured throughout its site and marketing, giving it a distinctive brand.
Below we will take a full, in-depth look at LeoVegas and break it down piece by piece – in terms of its Sportsbook, Casino and Mobile App – to see how well it stacks up against its competitors.
We will take a look at all the key info you need to know before deciding to sign up, including:
- – Is it a site you can trust?
- – What are the welcome offers and free bets – are they worth doing?
- – What is the user experience like?
- – What sports and casino games are offered?
- – Are the odds offered any good?
- – How good is the customer service?
And all the other crucial info you need.
At the current time LeoVegas is primarily a casino and sportsbook, with a very extensive selection of slots games as part of their offering. At the moment they don’t have poker or bingo sections like many of the other online gambling companies, but that may change in time as LeoVegas are a fairly new entrant to the market.
The main details about LeoVegas are as follows:
|Public or Private Company:||Public, traded on Nasdaq|
|Gambling types provided:||Sportsbook, Casino, Slots|
Those are the key details about LeoVegas but let’s take a look at their key offerings and see how they rate on each of our key metrics.
The LeoVegas Sportsbook offers a wide range of sports and markets, including in-play betting for many sports. Although they are perhaps best known for their casino, the Sportsbook has a good offering too and should be considered as an option for your sports wagers.
They aren’t currently included on Oddschecker’s list of bookies to compare which is a shame because that would save time when looking at whether their odds are worth taking and would be likely to bring more customers to LeoVegas. Maybe that is something that will happen in time.
User Experience (UX)
On the desktop version, the LeoVegas Sportsbook is generally good but could be a little more user friendly. For example rather than selecting your sports and markets from a side menu as with most bookies, you have to tick the options you want from a drop-down menu before the odds are displayed. But that is a small point really and generally it is a nice, clean site and works particularly well on the mobile version, which is its forte.
UX Score: 3/5
Free Bet Welcome Offer – Sportsbook
LeoVegas Sportsboook has a very good welcome bonus of up to £/€50 for new customers, which is one of the best sign-up bonuses around.
The offer is available to those over 18 years old and is for new customers only. The minimum stake is £10. First single wager of minimum odds 1/1 will be matched with a 50% free bet up to £50 for in-play & mobile use only. Excludes Horse Racing. Skrill/Neteller deposits do not qualify. T&Cs apply – please see full terms here.
Free Bet Welcome Offer score: 4.5/5
Special Offers, Bonuses and Reloads
There are some excellent special offers and bonuses with LeoVegas for existing customers, which change over time but the current ones include:
Weekly Rewards:- each week, when you place five In-Play bets of £15 or more via mobile, LeoVegas will give you a £10 Free Bet with the LeoVegas Bet Club.
Bet Five Times Get a Free Bet:- Each week simply place five qualifying bets on football, darts, tennis, rugby union or rugby league via mobile between 00:01 on Monday and 23:59 on Sunday to unlock your mobile Free Bet.
There are also other ongoing offers as part of the LeoVegas Bet Club so look out for those.
(For all the above offers please note T&Cs apply, 18+).
Special offers, bonuses and reloads score: 4/5
There are a large number of sports offered by the LeoVegas Sportsbook, including:
- – Football
- – Horse Racing
- – Tennis
- – American Football
- – Athletics
- – Aussie Rules
- – Boxing
- – Cricket
- – Darts
- – Golf
- – Greyhounds
- – Ice Hockey
- – Motorsports
- – Olympic Games
- – Politics
- – Rugby League
- – Rugby Union
- – Snooker
- – TV & Novelty
- – UFC/MMA
So a wide range of sports and events there and in total there are over 35 sports offered, which is a very good number and there should be something for everyone.
Sports Offered Score: 4.5/5
As you would expect with most modern Sportsbooks these days, in-play betting is offered by LeoVegas with top sports like football, tennis, cricket, baseball, golf and pretty much all the sports mentioned above also being available to bet on in-running.
When we were testing we could not see a cash-out option though, so they would benefit from adding this as a number of other bookies that have in-play betting have a cash-out button now.
In-Play Betting Score: 3.5/5
With LeoVegas not featured on Oddschecker, it is a little difficult to give a comprehensive assessment of how good the odds they offer are relative to the other bookies. However, in our own experience the odds they offer are fair and certainly no worse in general than any of the other major players in the market.
OVERALL LEOVEGAS SPORTSBOOK RATING:
Overall we like the LeoVegas Sportsbook as it offers a wide range of sports with in-play options and has some nice bonuses and offers, both as a welcome and for existing customers. It would be nice to see them on Oddschecker and hopefully that will be added soon.
Payment Choices with LeoVegas
There are various options for making payments into and from your LeoVegas account, including Paypal, Skrill and Neteller and of course debit and credit cards with Visa and Mastercard. Making payments is a fairly smooth process and it is one of the better sites for that.
|Deposit Choices:||Mastercard, Visa, Paypal, Neteller, Bank Transfer, Paysafecard, Trustly|
|Currencies Accepted:||GBP, Euro, AUD, SEK|
The minimum withdrawal is a little higher than the minimum deposit, which is a shame but for most punters this shouldn’t make much of a difference. Withdrawals of up to £10,000 can be made without fees which is good. As with most online sportsbooks/casinos, you have to complete KYC requirements by providing ID documents, but this only has to be done once and does confirm that this is a genuine company taking their regulatory obligations seriously.
So having taken a look at the LeoVegas Sportsbook, it is time to focus on their casino and see how it compares to other competitors online. Let’s break it down by section and see how everything stacks up.
Welcome Offer – 100% Bonus Up to £300 + 30 Spins
The LeoVegas Casino has an excellent Welcome Offer for new customers of a 100% bonus up to £300 + 30 spins. This is a very good offer in terms of the bonus amount and is well worth taking advantage of. There is also an offer of 20 free spins with no deposit upon signing up, making it even better!

Casino Welcome Offer Score: 4/5
LeoVegas have offered a number of reload offers in the past, including a 50% reload bonus up to £50.
They do not have any reload offers at the current time, but they do have a “VIP Experience” which is a Monthly Prize Draw giving away fantastic prizes like the latest Apple products, exclusive VIP event experiences and much more! There are VIP levels based on how much you bet and then every month one lucky lion from each VIP group level will get their paws on a fantastic prize. You can see your journey progress by a quick look at your VIP BAR, which automatically grows a little bit with every real money bet you place. You can check out more about the VIP Experience here.
Casino Reloads Score: 3/5
One of LeoVegas strongest points is the range of games it offers on its casino. Including slots games, they have over 800 games offered! We are not sure if that is a record amongst online casinos but it certainly puts it up there with the best.
In terms of the traditional casino games, they offer what you would expect with also some themed games, including:
- – Roulette
- – Football Studio
- – Celebrity Blackjack Party
- – American Live Roulette
- – Sports Blackjack
- – Baccarat
- – Three Card Poker
- – Caribbean Stud Poker
- – Texas Hold’ Em
- – Double Ball Roulette
In addition to all these traditional casino games, there are also over 800 other games and slots, which is quite remarkable. They are obviously far too numerous to list here, but here are the some of the most popular:-
- – Book of Dead
- – Bonanza
- – Starburst
- – Immortal Romance
- – Mega Moolah
- – Mega Fortune Dreams
- – Diamond Jackpots
- – Major Millions
- – House of Doom

Plus of course there are hundreds more, which as we say makes LeoVegas Casino one of the best in terms of the range of casino games and slots offered.
Games Offered Score: 5/5
User Experience (UX)
Much like with the Sportsbook user experience, LeoVegas Casino offers a very good UX, with easy navigation, nice presentation and so many options to play various games, as described above. This is particularly true with the mobile App, which was the original offering from LeoVegas and is a high quality design.
User Experience Score: 4/5
Reputation & Trust
LeoVegas is a reputable casino and is a public company that trades on the Nasdaq stock market. It is regulated by both the UK Gambing Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. Its Random Number Generator is independently tested regularly and always scores highly and the games are regulated by eCOGRA, meaning you can have trust that the games are genuine and fair. They have been certified by Gambleaware and carry links to relevant support centres on their site.
Reputation & Trust Score: 4/5
Customer support in our experience has always been very good at LeoVegas. They have e-mail addresses as well as phone numbers and live chat to contact with queries and people to help in a number of languages. Queries are normally dealt with within 24 hours, although some may take longer. Help is available all day every day so even on public holidays you should still expect a response. For additional information it can also be worth checking out the FAQs page, which covers regular questions and issues you may have.
Customer Service Score: 4/5
LEOVEGAS CASINO OVERALL RATING:
The casino is a very good offering from LeoVegas and offers a huge range of over 800 games, so whether traditional table games like blackjack and roulette are your thing, or if you prefer fun online games like Book of Dead or Bonanza, or even tend to go for slots, there is something for everyone. There is a good welcome offer of up to £300, although beware the wagering requirements and general T&Cs with that.
The look and feel of the casino is nice and it has a good user experience with excellent customer support, so overall we feel LeoVegas is one of the better casinos out there and is worthy of a strong rating.
LeoVegas Mobile App
As mentioned previously, one of the things LeoVegas prides itself on is its Mobile App. The mobile app was actually developed before the desktop version, which is very unusual in this day and age. However, LeoVegas have projected themselves very much as the mobile gaming experience, so it is perhaps not that surprising.
The App is very usable and has generally positive user reviews, with an average of 4 stars on the App Store for example. The newer version is also sleeker and easy to use, with quick navigation to the things you need like bet placement.
Mobile App Score: 4/5
CONCLUSION – LEOVEGAS REVIEW
So there you have it, our complete LeoVegas review. Overall we think this is a great online betting site with a nice style to it with the lion featuring heavily in their branding and a good look and feel to the site. Some very good welcome and reload offers, plus a huge range of games and sports to bet on make this one of the most innovative and impressive bookies to have entered the market in recent years. Dive in and have a go if you’re not already signed up.
