Promotions and Rewards
As LeoVegas is so successful on the casino side, its promotions are plentiful in that section. However, it is still thin on the ground with the Sportsbook section.

They also give players free spins directly at registration, if you’re looking for other promotions than betting offers, no deposit bonus at NZ casinos, for example, you should check the site BestBonus.co.nz that compares and lists hundreds of casino offers.
Appearance and Navigation
The LeoVegas appearance is very clear and simple. With three main headings “Casino”, “Live Casino” and “Sports”. Again for the purpose of this review, I will solely focus on the “Sports” section of the website.
The first thing you notice on the LeoVegas website is the clear lack of clutter on the screen. In addition, you have all the relevant information dead in the centre with the left and right being reserved as a screensaver. This is a modern and well-appreciated design. Unlike far too many competitors that are guilty of overloading information on their websites.
Just below the “Sports” header, the different categories of sports are located. Starting with “Live Now” and “Starting Soon” then followed by the separate sports. On the front page, they have the more “popular” sports in the UK such as Football, Horse Racing, Tennis, Darts etc. If you wanted to find the rest of the sports options. They are located in an easy to find tab headed “Show all” to the right of the page. A most welcomed feature is the search bar at the top. Instead of having to scroll for your desired sport, league or team. You can simply search for them. This setup makes everything easy to find, but more importantly, you are able to find and place your bets faster.
To complement betting faster, LeoVegas has a two touch betting system. Once you find your bet, click on your desired odds and a pop up will appear. Then you simply input your stake and click the “Place Bet” button. If you wish to build on your bet you can minimise the tab or keep it on screen. It’s a nice addition to be able to hide the bet whilst you browse, also allowing you to concentrate on finding the right odds and markets.
Room for Improvement
While I am impressed with the majority of this website, it has the same problem as many other sportsbooks. Whilst browsing through the separate leagues and competitions. There is no option to move back, instead, you have to search for that league or competition all over again. This isn’t a huge problem, but more of an annoyance if you wanted to build a bet.
LeoVegas has a respectable amount of pre betting and in-play betting markets to choose from. They have around 19 different sports to choose from in the A-Z tab, of course, this contains all the key markets, to name a few.
- American Football
- Horse Racing
Inside of these key markets, they have extensive options for both in play and pregame betting. As well as offering more than the average site would in terms of variety and more niche leagues and competitions to bet on. You can really customise your bets with a lot of variety and options, together with fast navigation throughout the markets.
Live Betting and Streaming
LeoVegas have two tabs for Live betting, the “Live Now” tab and the “Starting Soon” tab. In the Starting Soon tab games are split into hour slots. With a cool countdown feature so you know when the game will start. In the hour slot, you have all the games in one list, it is not split into subheadings of their sporting category. That would be a nice feature making it easier to understand but it is still a nice feature.
In the “Live Now” tab, the games are split into the sporting category. At the time of reviewing I had Football, Tennis, Basketball and Volleyball. All neatly laid out and easy to read. On games without a live stream, you have the typical infographic displaying the pitch or court depending on the sport. However the information displayed is minimal, it could do with some updating and improvement.
They have two separate apps for sports and their casino. However, you can still use the casino through the sports app. You can either download their app or use their mobile site as both offers the same great design.
LeoVegas has a clear emphasis towards live betting with their homepage featuring top live and top upcoming events. Above this, you can browse sports by country or competition to find and build pre-game bets.
The design for both is fairly simplistic, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. It allows for extremely fast loading times and navigation throughout the whole app and site. Also, their customer service is available through the app with live chat, a message service, free phone, email and FAQ.
We are also impressed with the detail and depth to their stats in certain events. When looking at the new football season you could find form, facts, table, season and scorer stats. Once again loading all stats extremely fast.
In short, LeoVegas may take some getting used to, but its simplicity is certainly a positive. You can navigate, view stats, place bets and build bets with great speed which is exactly what you want out of a mobile platform.
LeoVegas has a number of services for customer support. All located in a handy tab “Support” in the top left of the website.
- List of FAQ’s for support without contact
- A live chat available
- Contact Form to which they respond by email within 24 hours
- Free phone numbers- UK +44 808 169 9799 Ireland +353 1 800 938655
- International Contact number- +356 2778 1166
- Email- Support@leovegas.com
Overall LeoVegas have a solid and extensive customer service to provide support 24/7.
In conclusion, LeoVegas maybe new in the Sportsbook market, but sure make an impact. With one of the best welcome offers, an innovative and easy to use website design. A huge array of betting markets and options. Exceptional customer support and varying promotions and rewards for existing customers it is hard not to recommend LeoVegas. If they could add more live streaming options. Whilst improving the navigation between different league/competitions it would be a near perfect website.
