LeoVegas Casino & Sportsbook Review for 2021
On deck next for review is Leo Vegas. They run a casino and sportsbook. If you’re in the neighborhood for either, then this is one review you’ll want to finish.
We cover all the important details – the sports and markets they cover, casino games you can play, promos they offer, etc. – so that you can decide if LeoVegas is the right place for you.
I think they will be – for most people. But the only way to know for sure?
Start reading the review below.
Tip! I recommend you visit LeoVegas after you finish this review, even if you don’t think they’re right for you. It’s hard to accurately describe robust casinos and sportsbook without writing a book. They’re one of the casinos you have to see for yourself. You can even go there now and follow along with the review.
Who’s behind LeoVegas Casino? How long have they been in business?
LeoVegas is part of the LeoVegas Group. They’re a Swedish mobile gaming company who’s been in business since 2011-2012, so about 4-6 years now.
They’ve exploded in growth and popularity since their launch. The biggest reason why is due their vision to become “number one in mobile gaming.” In other words, they didn’t stamp out another ‘me too’ casino and expect to stand out. They focused on mobile, which was experience massive growth in 2012. Between hard work, good timing and a solid product, their casino has risen to the top.
So, it’s not surprising to see they’ve won multiple awards for both casino and mobile gambling. They’ve won more than 15, in fact. Some of the awards they’ve won include:
- 2013 - "Best Innovation in Casino of the Year", EGR Nordic Awards
- 2014 - "Best Mobile Product of the Year", EGR Nordic Awards
- 2015 - "Affiliate Program of the Year" & "Slots Operator of the Year", EGR Nordic Awards
- 2015 - "Grand Prize Award", GP Bullhound Summit
- 2016 - "Mobile Operator of the Year", "Casino Operator of the Year" & "Nordic Operator of the Year" EGR Nordic Awards
- 2016 - "Online Casino Operator of the Year", International Gaming awards
- 2016 - "Casino Operator of the Year", Gaming Intelligence Awards
- 2016 - "The Best Mobile Marketing Campaign of the Year" & "Best CRM Campaign of the Year"
- 2017 - "Online Casino Operator of the Year", International Gaming Awards
I think we can expect this trend to continue.
Have they had any problems, or been involved in any scams?
Nothing major that I found.
One thing I DID find, that was shocking at first, are the 58 complaints on AskGamblers.com. However, all but 2 of them are either resolved or rejected (in favor of the casino).
Of the two that were unresolved (both of them in 2015), one was because the player wanted to close his account, but said that Leo Vegas wouldn’t let him. This was an odd complaint since he said he didn’t want to self-exclude himself, since that option is for problem gamblers (which didn’t apply to him). He thought he should be able to close his account to remove all temptation from playing here again because he didn’t like the service.
That doesn’t make sense to me. If I don’t like the service somewhere, I don’t need any help or incentive not to continue going back in the future.
But, what do I know? Because the guy wasn’t really splitting hairs – AskGamblers.com actually sided with him. LeoVegas “self-excluded” the player – which was both wrong in terms of principal and as a breach of their terms and conditions – which, according to Ask Gamblers, could get them in legal trouble in some jurisdictions.
Anyway, it sounded to me as if LeoVegas did what they could to remedy the situation. And, AskGamblers closed the case, but it wasn’t displayed that way in their complaints section.
The other complaint looked like a similarly tricky issue, too.
Overall – my opinion is that LeoVegas has your normal complaints, but no scams or major issues to be weary of. It looks like they do their best to respond to complaints and help players, too.
Beyond that, they’re an accredited casino at Casinomeister.com, as well as an endorsed casino at the WizardOfOdds.com. Their company is listed and traded on the Stockholm Stock Exchange, too.
In short – I think they’re a safe and legit casino. Nothing from a safety, ethics or legal perspective to prevent you from playing here.
Who can or can’t play at LeoVegas?
Players from the following countries will not be able to play at LeoVegas:
- United States
- most countries in Africa (except South Africa)
- Latin America
Additionally, bonuses are only given to players in the following counties:
What offer’s available to new customers?
There are a couple of different offers – one for the casino, live casino and one for the sportsbook. Here are the details.
You get a bonus and free spins with each of your first 4 deposits.
- 1st Deposit – Get up to $200 and 25 free spins.
- 2nd Deposit – Get up to $500 and 25 free spins.
- 3rd Deposit – Get up to $500 and 25 free spins.
- 4th Deposit – Get up to $400 and 25 free spins.
The total you can claim on this bonus is $1,600 and 100 free spins.
Get a 100% match bonus up to $100. What’s neat about this offer is that ALL games contribute 100% to clearing the rollover.
Get two 100% ‘Profit Boosts’ when you deposit the $10 minimum. Make a bet up to $5 and wait for the results. If your bet wins, you’ll get a little extra on top courtesy of LeoVegas.
We cover the playthrough and other requirements for each offer at the end of this section.
Are there any additional offers for existing customers?
There are a few extra offers, yeah.
All of the current casino offers are limited time promotions. They expire at the end of the month, so it makes no sense for us to cover all the details here.
As for the sportsbook, there are a few additional offers:
Horses Price Match
Make a bet on horse races in the UK or Ireland. If you take the current price, but the starting prize ends up bigger, Leo Vegas will pay out the higher price. For example, if you place a bet at 5/1 but the horse starts the race at 7/1, they will pay your winnings at 7/1.
Get up to $20 in bonuses for every Tigers (rugby) match. All you got to do is make a pre-match or in-play bet of $20 or more on any match. You’ll then receive: $5 for the live casino; 20 free spins for Rainbow Riches; a $10 free bet.
Get 10% cashback on your losing tennis bets every week, up to $1,000.
Other than these offers, they also have a free bet offer for the current NBA Finals, as well as a chance to win an official Premier League shirt of your choice.
Overall, it makes sense to stay in touch with Leo Vegas, be it by email, social media or simply by bookmarking their promos page. They run a mix of evergreen and limited time offers that you don’t want to miss.
What’s the catch? What are the terms for their offers?
These are the terms for the new player casino bonus:
- 35x playthrough on the free spins.
- 200% match if you deposit more than $50. Otherwise it’s a 100% match, and the max you can claim is $100.
- Deposits made by Neteller or Skrill are not eligible for the first four deposit bonuses.
- The playthrough for the bonus is 35x. Games such as blackjack and roulette will be weighted differently – like all casinos do – which means you’ll need to wager more to clear the offer.
These are the terms for the new player live casino bonus:
- All live games contribute 100% towards the wager requirements.
- You will need to wager the bonus 99 times before you can withdraw the bonus or winnings.
- The minimum deposit for this offer is $10.
- Deposits made by Neteller or Skrill aren’t eligible for this offer.
- Minimal risk wagers – bets on red/black, for example – will not contribute to clearing the bonus.
Most of these terms will apply to general offers, too. On top of that you have the different contribution percentages, which are as follows:
- Slots - 100%
- Table Games - 10%
- Video Poker - 10%
- All other games - 100%
Certain slots will have lower contribution percentages, too. You can see those, as well as all their bonus terms, here.
These are the terms for the sports bonus:
- The minimum deposit is $10.
- The maximum bet you can make (per Profit Boost) is $5.
- You must place the bet on one market/bet. Each way bets do not count.
- You can place this bet on any market.
- The max odds for this offer is 20/1.
- Deposits made by Neteller and Skrill aren’t eligible for this offer.
- The extra winnings from the Profit Boost is capped at $105.
Does Leo Vegas Casino have a comps and/or VIP program?
They offer a VIP program. In your player account you’ll see a VIP Level BAR, which will grow with every real money bet you make. There are 99+ VIP levels.
Perks of the program include:
- Invitations to VIP exclusive events
- Dedicated Account Managers
- Personal payment and withdrawal service
- Unique Birthday rewards
- Exclusive LeoVegas Roaring Reward bonuses
- Monthly VIP prize draws
Their big draw, or ‘main event’ as they put it, is their monthly prize draw. They give away all sorts of prizes such as VIP event experiences, electronics and more. One person each month will be chosen to pick their own prize from their shop, or opt for the cash alternative.
Tickets for the drawing are awarded by multiplying the amount you have played through your current VIP level. The more tickets you earn, the more chances you have to win something.
What markets can you bet? Do they offer live betting?
They cover more than 30 sports, though, and hundreds of markets and submarkets. Most, if not all the common options are covered. Those include:
- American Football
- Australian Rules
- Beach Volley
- Gaelic Sports
- Horse Racing
- Ice Hockey
- Leo Roar
- Rugby League
- Rugby Union
- TV & Novelty
- Winter Olympic Games
- Winter Sports
They offer live betting, too. When I checked the in-play section out there was football (soccer) matches running, tennis, golf, rugby, baseball and basketball.
They also have a starting soon section so you can make plans for what to bet on later. When I checked this section out they had upcoming bets for UFC, e-sports, volleyball and football.
What types of bets can you make? Are there any limits?
All sorts. Here are some of the different types of bets I came across while reviewing their site:
- Both teams to score
- Double chance
- Half time
- Total goals – first half
- Draw no bet
- Asian handicap
- Total goals by home team
- Total goals by away team
- Total rounds
- 3-way handicap
- Total points odd/even
- Each way
- Super Heinz
It would probably be good to spend some time browsing their sportsbook if there’s something specific you’re looking for. But for your weekend bettors or newbies – guys like me – LeoVegas has you covered in terms of markets and betting options.
And they do have limits, but they vary based on the sport you want to bet. They seem relatively high/reasonable to me, though. I’m seeing limits of $50,000 to $100,000 for most sports -- $250,000 for others, such as football (soccer). This is another one of those things you’ll want to scope out on your own if you have concerns. But I think most people will be okay with the limits – recreational bettors especially.
What do experts think of their sportsbook? Any major likes or dislikes?
One of the biggest misses is there’s no live streaming. I have no idea if they plan to add it, nor have I heard anything one way or the other. It’s been 4+ years since they’ve launched, though. You’d think they’d add it by now if they had plans to do so.
On the upside, they’re well-known for their mobile sportsbook. I wasn’t able to check it out as I don’t have a VPN for my phone. But it’s a priority to them. It’s part of their company’s vision to be the best mobile platform. They’ve won multiple (mobile gaming) awards, too. So, you can expect it to be good.
You can either use their website from your browser, or you can download their apps for either iOS or Android.
Overall – people like their sportsbook. I think I would, too, if I was a non-US bettor.
What software providers does Leo Vegas work with?
They work with a TON of software providers. Here are all the different companies they work with:
- Authentic Gaming
- Extreme Live Gaming
- Felt Games
- Lightning Box
- Play’N go
- Play Tech
- Pragmatic Play
- Push Gaming
- Realistic Games
- SG Interactive (WMS, Bally, SM & Barcrest)
- Big Time gaming
If you’re new to online gambling, you have no idea the number or variety of games this would mean if Leo Vegas offered every game created from each company.
If you’re a veteran, well …this excites you.
How many games do they have? What devices can you play them on?
They have a lot. Here’s how they break their games down on their main casino page:
- Slots – 626
- Classic slots – 21
- Live casino – 42
- Jackpots – 29
- Live roulette – 38
- Table games – 43
There’s probably some overlap there. But even with that in mind there’s at least 700 games to choose from. And that’s likely not counting some games, such as scratch tickets or keno.
This is a far cry from their potential, but way more than anyone needs to have access to.
Speaking of access, you don’t have to bother with a download. They offer an instant play and mobile casino instead. They have an app for both iOS and Android devices (just search for Leo Vegas in your app store). But you can also use their instant play casino (from your browser), which is compatible with iOS, Android and Windows.
What are some examples of games you can play here?
Here’s a tiny glimpse into the games you can play, including examples from their slots, live casino and table games sections. We’ll share any thoughts we have too.

You’ll notice here that on the left side are your traditional slot titles. Things you’ll see from any casino or software provider, but maybe with a different name or graphics.
Then on the right side are the licensed games revolving around movies, TV shows, video games, pop culture, celebrities, and more.
This is only 50 of the 600+ slot titles you can play, too. It should give you an idea of the sheer number of games you can play here..
- Live Roulette
- Speed Live Roulette
- Immersive Roulette
- Golden Ball Roulette
- VIP Roulette
- Swedish Roulette
- German Roulette
- Dual Play Roulette
- Auto Live Roulette
- Live Roulette Pro
- Double Ball Roulette
- Ultimate Texas Hold’em
- Baccarat (Controlled Squeeze)
- Live Blackjack
- Caribbean Stud Poker
- Extreme Blackjack
- Blackjack Party
- Casino Hold’em
- Baccarat Squeeze
- Celebrity Blackjack Party
- Live Common Draw Blackjack
- Blackjack Collection
Again, I put the roulette games on the left, and the other live dealer games on the right, just to give you an idea of the volume and variety of games they offer.
There are a few ‘Leo Vegas’ specific games, too, while the others come from a variety of providers – which means there might be a few duplicates in the mix. But you can choose whichever one has the best rules, graphics, dealer or whatever criteria works best for you.
They have variants for low limits, time frames, casinos and even countries/languages, too.
- 3 Card Brag
- Celebrity Blackjack
- Caribbean Stud Poker
- Red Dog
- Oasis Poker
- Baccarat Standard
- Double Exposure Blackjack
- Low Limit Blackjack
- Pai Gow Poker
- High Limit Single Deck Blackjack
- 3 Card Holdem
- Low Limit Single Deck Blackjack
- Caribbean Stud
- Texas Holdem Bonus
- Blackjack W/21+3 Bet
- Blackjack W/Suit ‘Em Up Bet
- European Blackjack Redeal
There’s a fair amount of overlap between this section and the live casino (none of the games listed immediately above are live dealer games, though). But outside of that there’s a decent selection of games.
There ARE several duplicates; again, because of the different software providers. But also because there are different variants of the same game. For example, the low and high limit games, or the games with side bets.
This will satisfy most people’s table game cravings, I think.
Those are examples from the core categories on their site. They also have additional categories such as:
- Top games
…if you prefer to find your games that way. They also have a search feature if you know the name of the game you want to play.
My biggest complaint – and this is the second casino I’ve reviewed that’s like this – is how they offer video poker games, but don’t have a separate category for them. 95+ percent of other casinos do, because video poker is a popular game with a low house edge. But they’re mixed in with the slots and table games.
Other than that, though, I’m real impressed with their game selection. I think most people could have an account at Leo Vegas’ casino and not need one anywhere else.
How do you fund your account? Are there any limits or fees?
The banking methods they accept include:
- Paysafe Card
The minimum deposit is $10.
How do you cash out your winnings? Are there any limits or fees?
You can cash out your winnings using:
- Wire Transfer
- Visa Electron
The minimum amount you can withdraw is $20. Cash out times take 12-24 hours (on average). And Casinomeister.com says they offer fast cash outs. They do weekend cash outs, too.
Payout limits depend on VIP level. But unlike other casinos, their limits are reasonable.
- £100,000 (for VIP 1-29)
- £200,000 (for VIP 30-59)
- £300,000 (for VIP 60-99)
If you have any questions, or run into any problems, how do you get in touch with Leo Vegas Casino?
You can contact them through the following methods:
What do we like least about Leo Vegas?
Here are a few things that stood out to us.
- They don’t have live streaming. This is something the other bigger sportsbook offer. I’m not a huge sports bettor, so I’m unsure how big/little an issue this is for bettors. But since their competitors offer it, you’d think Leo Vegas would, too.
- The different sections (live, upcoming, A-Z) didn’t load quickly for me. Most times they said they couldn’t show the data, and then a few seconds later the page loaded. But when the site worked, it worked well.
- It’d be great to see a few more evergreen promotions, namely reload bonuses. Or, maybe even a cashback offer or comps to cash offer.
- It feels like they just sort of tossed video poker games in. They don’t organize them like they do their other games. Not only that, but according to Casinomeister.com, they don’t have many video poker games to begin with.
What do we like most about them?
- They cover lots of sports (30+) and markets (hundreds). I saw one review that said they found more than 200 markets in one soccer section alone. You can bet on 30,000+ events each year.
- The same goes for the casino – they have lots of games – more than 700.
- Leo Vegas makes mobile gaming and software a priority. In fact, according to their about page they are now Europe’s biggest mobile casino. They’ve won awards for their mobile games and casino, too.
- They have lots of variety in their casino, between their traditional and licensed slot titles, to their live dealer and regular table games. It really feels as if you can get the entire online casino experience in one place.
- I like their casino offers. The main offer is nice because you get 4 deposits to claim all $1,600. The playthrough on this offer is reasonable, too. The live offer is great because all live games contribute 100% to the playthrough – though the playthrough is so-so.
Do we recommend Leo Vegas Casino to our readers?
Oh, yeah. Some people might even like them better than 888 or Bet365 – especially if you don’t want or need a poker or bingo option.
The bottom line – they have lots of betting options and games, solid offers, great software and customer service. You’re probably doing yourself a disservice by not checking them out.
