I could start this review by listing the more than a dozen awards LeoVegas has collected since they launched in 2012. Or I could list the endless number of game providers. Or maybe the exceptional choice of Live Casino games. Or the intergalactic promotions they are running week-in, week out. Tough to point our what makes LeoVegas stand out from the crowd so much that they are today the worldwide leader in mobile gaming with over 800 employees. They simply offer a complete package that covers all areas of online gaming and sports betting.
Listed on the Stock Exchange in Stockholm, LeoVegas is a prime gaming destination, offering Casino, Live Casino and Sportsbook to its clients worldwide. To achieve that, they acquired some of the most stringent licenses for regulated markets such as from the MGA Malta, the UK Gambling Commission, the Danish Gambling Authority and the Swedish Spelinspektionen. Needless to say, you will be enjoying your gaming in a secure and fair environment.
Update 24th January 2021: LeoVegas is now an open banking casino. Payments for UK players are now offered via SafeCharge and TrueLayer. Click on the link to read our article and find out what that means for you.
The GMBLRS Detective
Looking at the general info, I was looking forward to my discovery tour at LeoVegas Casino. I must say that I never registered an account with them as they do not accept players from my country of residence. But given the opportunity, I would have done it without hesitation. Well, I am sure they are just fine without me but let’s take a closer look at what is on offer.
Once you open the site, you will find a mobile-optimized homepage with clear tabs for all game sections as well as a top bar with Casino, Live Casino and Sportsbook tabs. Registration is done in two steps whereas you will be able to pick from three welcome offers, one for each section that will suit your personal preference. Once completed, you will receive an SMS message to authenticate and activate your account. Upload your KYC docs at the earliest convenience to avoid any delays or issues later on.
Ready to play? I have no doubt that everyone will find his/her favourites as LeoVegas has over 50 game providers listed in the casino lobby. The mainstream studios and powerhouses such as Netent, Microgaming, Playtech, Play’n GO and SG Digital are well-mixed with newcomers and shooting stars like Big Time Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, Gamomat and Yggdrasil. They are also one of the very few sites offering Merkur and Novmatic slots together. These exotic outsiders have a large following from their heyday in land-based casinos.
Live Casino Enthusiasts will be surprised to find an immensely large selection of tables. There is a Chambre Séparée with LeoVegas exclusive tables as well as tables from Authentic Live Gaming, Evolution Live Gaming, Extreme Live Gaming (now part of Pragmatic Play), Netent Live, Lucky Streak Gaming and Ezugi. The choice is literally endless.
You probably have thought by now to get ready for your first deposit. LeoVegas has a large selection of payment methods available that are country-specific. Pick from e-wallets, credit/debit cards, prepaid cards, pay by phone options, instant banking and much more to suit your personal preference for deposits. Please note that some methods, e.g. credit cards, are restricted in the UK. Withdrawals are just as fast, usually from near-instant to a few hours for e-wallets and one to three days for other methods.
Note: Klarna/Sofort and credit cards are not available for players from the United Kingdom! To fund their account, they can use Skrill, TrueLayer, SafeCharge, PayPal, ApplePay or PaySafe Card while for withdrawals they can choose from Skrill, TrueLayer, SafeCharge and PayPal.
What makes LeoVegas extra special are their awesome promotions. There is rarely a week going by where they are not offering extra spins, races, tournaments, prize draws and much more. And they do that for all three sections, so no one feels left out. Plus, all players are enrolled in their loyalty program. The higher you climb the better the personalized offers and benefits are getting.
LeoVegas promotes Safer Gambling with an extensive section and a link to the dedicated website LeoSafePlay.com. A set of self-assessment questions can help you anonymously evaluate your current gambling habits. Daily, weekly and monthly deposit, loss, session and wagering limits can be easily set to prevent you from being tempted into overstretching your budget, along with session time reminders. Ultimately, you can take a break by initiating a time-out facility or self-exclude and block your account from use should you feel the need. LeoVegas is also part of the GAMSTOP program for UK players.
The GMBLRS’ Detective Verdict
They don’t come much better, to be honest. I would love to be able to play at LeoVegas but would have to move my home by a few thousand miles to an accepted country, which won’t happen anytime soon. The casino has everything a players needs and wants when looking for a gaming hangout that excels in all three areas – Casino, Live Casino and Sportsbook.
