Leo Vegas, one of the leading online casino platforms in Europe, has finally launched a sportsbook to complement its existing range of betting options. Following a lengthy selection process, Leo Vegas chose the Kambi Group to provide the backbone of its new platform, which can be found on the main homepage alongside the 'casino' and 'live casino' tabs.
After agreeing a deal with the Kambi Group back in January 2016, Leo Vegas has been working to tailor the software provider's services to meet its own unique style. As Kambi is at the core of the new platform, the software will feel familiar to anyone that's anted up on sites such as 888sport, Unibet or 32Red Sport in the past.
As you'd expect, Leo Vegas has added its own twist, which means you'll enjoy the mobile-style design the operator is known for. Essentially, what this means is that the main sports betting page is divided into two main sections: the tool bar and the odds section.
The Leo Vegas sportsbook software is extremely simple to navigate and this idea is carried throughout the site. Most impressive from the user's perspective is the way you can move from sport to sport. Unlike some online sportsbooks, Leo Vegas doesn't list its sports on the left of the main page and then bombard you with an array of sub-menus.
Instead, at Leo Vegas the set-up is such that you choose your sport at the top of the page before you're given three additional options: Live & Upcoming, Outrights and Browse XXX. Overall, this set-up makes everything easier to find and, more importantly, speeds up the betting process.
At the top of the page you can choose the sport you most enjoy by clicking the relevant link. This will switch the odds section to the relevant sport. Keeping everything confined to a single page is very much in keeping with the mobile generation (which doesn't use multiple tabs or pages), but it also makes it easier to find what you're looking for.
To complement this simple search, Leo Vegas has a two-touch betting system. After finding the best odds, a simple click will cause a betting slip to pop up from the bottom of the screen. At this point you simply have to enter your stack and click the 'place bet' button to lock it in.
Once you've placed the bet, the pop up will disappear and you can pick up where you left off. Alternatively, if you want to add some more wagers, you can hit the 'hide' button and click on more odds boxes before calling up the betting slip and inserting your stakes. Naturally, given the mobile vibe of the online site, it's no surprise that you can also enjoy the Leo Vegas sportsbook on your iOS and Android devices.
When it comes to odds and pricing, Leo Vegas works hard to match the major operators. The default setting for odds is fractional; however, if you click on the settings button you have the ability to change the view to American or decimal. Additionally, because Leo Vegas is constantly updating its odds, you can set an automatic response to any decrease or increase in price.
Despite being a new addition to the online sports betting world, Leo Vegas has thousands of daily betting options thanks to Kambi's software. From pre-event bets to in-play wagers, you can place singles, combinations or system bets from as little as £0.10 on 36 different sports, including: football, horse racing, tennis, golf, rugby union, boxing, chess, non-sporting events and more.
In addition to a live tab inside each sport, Leo Vegas offers a 'Live Right Now' option, which lists ongoing events from around the world. Segmented into sports and augmented with timers and live score counters, the live betting tab is an easy way to place instant bets on everything from tennis to football.
When you join Leo Vegas, you'll gain access to every facet of its gaming platform, as well as a welcome bonus worth up to £100 and 200 free slot spins. Beyond that, you can claim up to £500 on your second deposit, up to £500 on your third and up to £400 on your fourth deposit. All first-time mobile bettors will receive £30 free, which means there's a possible £1,530 up for grabs when you join Leo Vegas.
Naturally, like all betting bonuses, there are some terms and conditions, but the main ones you need to be aware of are that each bonus is based on a 100% match and to release your free cash you need to stake 35X the bonus amount.
Leo Vegas is fully regulated and licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. All transactions are backed by SSL encryption and only processed by recognised banking methods, including: Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard.
After submitting a proof of ID and address, deposits start at £10 and withdrawals are typically processed within 3 to 5 business days.
The Leo Vegas Sports might be a new player in the game, but it's backed by an industry veteran in Kambi. This combination of youth and experience makes it a formidable force in the online sports betting world and a place that's definitely worth a bet.
