Most bookmakers cracked it online first (some even started in funny things called shops – kids ask your parents) before launching mobile apps, but our friends at Leo Vegas did things the other way around. "Europe's fastest and most user-friendly mobile casino," began life on a phone, and as a result keeps raising the bar, cleaning up at mobile gaming awards year upon year.
The business has grown fast, now floated on the NASDAQ, but the site is still great for novices and high-rollers alike. This isn't down-town dirty Vegas, but the MGM Grand of apps.
The casino offering is simply outstanding, offering games from multiple (posh word for loads of) software providers. And for those still unsure, many games can be sampled for free, without even having to register.
The Sportsbook is a newer product, but is a thorough piece of kit. Powered by the Kambi Group, Leo Vegas offer the full package of sporting odds, and their prices are just about as competitive as you could wish for from a bookmaker of this size. The site also supports in-play, claiming to be the fastest bookmaker in the world (useful when trying to pull a fast one courtside at Wimbledon.) As yet however, there is no live streaming.
There is a great welcome bonus with around £1500 of free cash on your first four deposits. There are also 120 free spins, with 20 appearing when you first sign up, and a further 25 on each of your first four deposits. For new Sportsbook customers, Leo Vegas offers a £30 welcome bonus as well as a 100% profit boost on your first two bets.
Other casino bonuses are offered on a weekly/monthly basis at LeoVegas, and may involve deposit matches, spins or free money into your account. There are also random prizes given to those who have simply played a certain game during that week, irrespective of stake, winnings or loses.
At higher levels the VIP scheme gives you exclusive event invites, personal account mangers, personal banking, enhanced bonuses and rewards on your birthday. Ding dong.
As per the site's FAQ section, "normally your money will hit your account on the day after you withdraw it but it may take 3 to 5 business days to process in some cases."
One great feature of LeoVegas is the Express Payout service, This allows you to withdraw to your bank by faster bank transfer, so if you withdraw during banking hours, the cash can hit your account in minutes.
It doesn't have the full package (absent are our old friends bingo and variants of poker,) but this is the best mobile casino around. The sportsbook is certainly not merely making up the numbers either.
