LeoVegas Sportsbook Review
Having only launched in 2013, LeoVegas is a relatively new provider that has quickly risen from relative obscurity to become a leading sportsbook.
Registered in Malta as LeoVegas Gaming Ltd and headquartered in the same place, it is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gambling Association. This means that their license stretches to the UK, Ireland, Denmark, and Malta, meaning they can serve a widespread market.
Since opening in 2013, LeoVegas has quickly become a big contender in the industry, particularly thanks to its sportsbook offerings, something that was only launched in 2016; LeoVegas initially launched as an online casino only.
LeoVegas prides itself on providing industry-leading levels of customer service and satisfaction. To this extent, they offer their customers and players 24-hour customer service, 7 days a week. This is available over the phone, via email, or through a live chat on the website. Customer support is knowledgeable and responds quickly to all queries.
The website is fast and responsive, ensuring a great user experience. Security is provided through 2048-bit SSL encryption to ensure that all personal and financial data remains safe and secure, and all games available through the online casino are tested by RNG and are eCOGRA certified.↑
Sports Betting at LeoVegas
LeoVegas offers an impressive range of sports betting options and markets through their sportsbook that, as we mentioned earlier, only launched in 2016. We are impressed by all the choice given that it has only been in existence for a few years at the time of writing.
Some of the offerings include—
- Football and Soccer
- Horse Racing
It even includes eSports!
And all these sports have a range of betting options for punters to stake their cash on. Because LeoVegas uses Kambi betting software, there are thousands of betting options that are available and change almost daily. In terms of betting types, there are both pre-event bets and in-play wagers that include singles, combination, accumulators, and system bets. Stakes start from as little as £0.10.
The sportsbook is very, very easy to navigate and get to grips with, even for people who are brand new to using them. All you need to do is select the sport you would like to place a bet on at the top of the page and choose the options that apply to you.↑
Bonuses Available at LeoVegas
LeoVegas has an introductory offer that is hard to refuse and is rarely matched by competitors. You can dive right into the action with their sportsbook welcome bonus—a 100% profit boost up to the value of £100 when you make your first bet.
Available to new customers only who make a £10 minimum deposit (NOTE: the introductory offer is not available for people using Skrill or Neteller to make deposits), you can make back 100% in-play as a profit boost. So, essentially, if you bet £10 you can get £10 back up to the value of £100.
To take advantage of this bonus—
- Register for an account at leovegas.com
- Make your first deposit of £10 or more
- Select your first bet on any sport at odds of at least 1/1
- Tick the ‘Profit Boost’ box at the bottom of your betting slip
- Sit back and wait for the money to come in
Deposit and Withdrawal Methods
LeoVegas has a decent variety of payment methods available to its punters.
Although LeoVegas doesn’t offer the same amount of payment methods as some competitors, they still cover the most common ones. These include debit or credit cards, Neteller, Skrill, PaySafeCard, Sofort, and Trustly. At the time of writing this review, PayPal is not offered as a payment or withdrawal method and Neteller and Skrill, as mentioned earlier, are excluded from the welcome bonus offer.
A minimum amount of £10 must be deposited and the maximum is £1000. All deposits are instantaneous, and no fees are taken.
So far as withdrawals are concerned, you may need to wait several days for the transaction to clear. You cannot withdraw winnings to debit or credit card, though—withdrawals must be done through Trustly, a legitimate online payments service. There are no fees for withdrawals.↑
