Leo Vegas Review
Leo Vegas is a new breed of online casino that is ploughing the majority of their resources into the ever-increasing mobile sector. It’s still a fairly new casino compared with a number of their competitors, but they are trying to merge ‘classic gaming’ with a twist on modern technology.
Whilst they do press their mobile gaming capabilities to the extreme, it’s worth noting that you can still play Leo Vegas games via the more traditional online route to maximise your casino experience.
When your register a new account at the LeoVegas sportsbook you are going to be able to get your hands on a tidy deposit promotion in the form of two 100% profit boosts. These work a little differently from just about any other offer in the sports betting industry, so lets try and explain in a little more detail.
When you make your deposit of £10 or more you will find 2 100% profit boosts in your account. When you then go to place your first bet of £5 or more you can choose to use these profit boosts on that bet. The boosts will essentially allow you to win double your original winnings for that bet. So, if you were originally set to win £50 from your bet and it won, it would pay out £100 instead.
The maximum bet amount for this offer is £5 and deposit made using either Skrill or Neteller will not be able to claim. The maximum odds that you can apply the profit boost to is 20/1 and winnings capped at £105.
Horse Racing Profit Boost
With 5 bets that you place on horse racing within the LeoVegas sportsbook, you are going to be able to get an added 10% profit boost on those selections. The promotion is limited to 5 boosts, but you are able to select on which bets you can use these. You will need to select your profit boost under the ‘Bonus Offers’ section in your bet slip and then any additional winnings will be adjust upon settlement of the bet.
New Football Shirt
With each bet that you place at the sportsbook with a minimum of two selections at odds of 20/1, LeoVegas sports will give you a shirt of the Premier League team of your choice should that bet be successful. The minimums stake for the bet must bet £10 and you will need to confirm which shirt you want within 7 days of the bet being settled.
Betting Odds and Markets
What’s been interesting to see is that LeoVegas have come out firing with their odds pricing structure. We aren’t going to go as far as saying they are the best, but we think they could offer a more than reasonable alternative to some of the much more established sportsbooks in the industry. From the sports that we compared, we found them to rarely be outside 5% of each individual price compared with the best price in the industry, which is a pretty large feat.
The range of sports that they include on site is actually really strong. You have around 20 to choose from in total, with football and horse racing being the sites two strongholds. The downside to this is the market coverage for each sport will vary quite significantly. Obviously, as we stated, football gets a great write up and covers a ton of games, but as you move away into sports like cricket, golf and American football, all popular sports within other bookmakers, the range of markets that you can choose from is somewhat limited.
As with all good sportsbooks, you are going to be able to access all the sports and markets from the online site on your mobile. There is no need to download a dedicated app and all you need to do is visit the sportsbook via your mobile browser. This does limit it somewhat in terms of design, but it does allow all mobile formats to access the site, with no limitations, which is more important in our opinion.
The live betting section is fairly compact compared to some bookmakers, but it does pretty much everything that you need it to. You can quickly see which games are in running, with an overview to the latest score for that game and also the latest live odds. Once you access each individual game you then get a much larger number of markets to bet on, including match centre that has updates on what’s happening, along with some vital statistics for etch game. Whilst the live betting isn’t exactly ground-breaking, it does a more than decent job and will suffice the needs of the majority of live bettors.
The initial welcome offer at Leo Vegas actually allows you to claim up to £1,500, which is broken down into the first 4 deposits you make at the site. Your first deposit is a 200% match from deposits between £10 and £100. Any bonus that you receive will need to be wagered through 35 times before you are able to withdraw. It’s worth noting that any deposits made using either Skrill or Neteller will not be able to claim this or any of the welcome package from Leo Vegas.
As part of your initial deposit package you will also get 50 free spins on the Leo Vegas ‘game of the week’. The free spins will hit your account when you have played through £5 of your bonus and then any money earned from those spins will need to be wagered through 35 times. The bonus and free spins are only available to players from Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Finland, Norway, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, Czech Republic and Sweden.
Clearing any part of the bonus will be achievable on all casino games, with each carrying different levels of contribution percentages. For example, slots will count 100%, whilst table games and video poker will only count 10%. All other games will contribute 100% towards clearing.
The second deposit that you make will be matched 100% up to a maximum of £500. The third deposit bonus is also a 100% match up to £500. The fourth and final bonus will be a 50% match up to £400. All terms and conditions for each bonus will be the same as the initial welcome bonus.
Each month at Leo Vegas you will be able to claim a spot on the leader board to earn cash and prizes. The games that contribute towards the leader board will vary for each month, so you will need to check on the website the applicable games for any given month.
You wont need to opt-in for the promotion, but you will need to make sure you are playing the correct games. Points are earned any time you hit certain icons from each game, which are usually in the form of the free spins icon. The more you hit, the more points you will accumulate. Again, the prizes will vary for each month, but at the time of writing first prize was £10,000 in cash, 2nd-5th got an iPad and iPhone, 6th-10th an iPad Pro, 11th-15th Gold iPhone, 16th-30th £250 in cash and 31st-50th was £100 in cash, so well worth winning!

The roulette section is really something to behold and with this you’re getting no less than 25 different variants of the game, easily the biggest in the industry. You’re classic games are all on offer along with 3 wheel roulette, American roulette, Monopoly Roulette, London Live Roulette, French Roulette and VIP Roulette, to name but a few.
As an online casino with 10 software providers, their slots section was always going to be impressive, and that’s exactly the case at Leo Vegas. You basically have over 500 titles to choose from with some of the more popular ones including Cleopatra, Crime Scene, Disco Spins, Dracula, Monopoly, the Codfather, and Superman.
You’ve got a steady stream of around a dozen jackpot games to choose from at any given time. It’s not a huge number big they include some big titles such as Major Millions and The Dark Knight, two of the biggest games going. Jackpots will often reach in excess of £1milllion for these types of games.
About Leo Vegas
Leo Vegas has been about since 2013, which in online gaming terms, isn’t all that long. However, they realised from day one that to get a foothold in this marketplace they needed to find themselves a niche. That niche just happened to be within the mobile casino sector and in the relatively short period of time they’ve become one of the best mobile casino’s in the industry.
Leo Vegas put a huge emphasis on making the usability of mobile for casino games their main priority. They games loaded rapidly, even on slower mobile speeds and the games that they had converted to mobile were as big as any in the industry. It’s widely thought that even in 2013, Leo Vegas were one of the main reasons why many other – larger – casino brands really upped their mobile game.
As a result they have gone on to win many awards for their work including Gaming Intelligence at GIQ 2013, Best Innovation in Casino in 2014 at the EGR Innovation Awards, Best Gaming Operator of the year at the ICE Totally Gaming Awards 2013 and Mobile Casino Product of the Year from EGR Innovation in 2014.
