Factor in their rewarding loyalty scheme and comprehensive in-play betting channel, and Leo Vegas appear to be onto a winner. We take a closer look in our sportsbook review.
Pros & cons
With well over 30 sports available to bet on at LeoVegas, you'll have no trouble filling your betslip, even in the off season. In LeoVegas' A-Z of sports, you'll find crowd favourites such as football and horseracing, joined by more obscure sports such as Pesapallo and Chess.
A quick look at an upcoming Premier League game will reveal that LeoVegas' football coverage is among the best, with as many as 200 markets being offered on each match, including Asian Lines. This is an ever-increasing number, with newer event bets such as 'next throw-in taken' only raising the levels of fun to be had.
While football may be the main attraction for most punters, fans of other sports, from Tennis to MMA, are granted excellent coverage, with a wide selection of betting markets available, ensuring there's something for everyone.

Live Betting & Streaming
If you're looking to make some in-play winnings, LeoVegas is the place to be. The 'Live now' tab is a great feature which provides you with an overview of in play matches, scorelines and the money line odds across a variety of sports including Football, Tennis and Cricket. Unfortunately, you'd have to look elsewhere if you'd like to watch the action unfold, as LeoVegas do not offer live streaming.
While fans of the enhanced accumulator will be disappointed at the lack of enhanced odds and price boosts, you'll find that the standard odds do provide great value, with LeoVegas offering odds that are competitive with the major bookmakers.
Relative newcomers to the sports scene, LeoVegas have entered the fray with a refreshingly modern and fun design. The site is simple and easy to use, with tabs at the top of the page displaying the most popular sports and a search bar to help you find exactly what you're looking for. This is a welcome change from the layout offered by most online sportsbooks, where players are often swamped with a series of sub-menus.
As pioneers of mobile casino, it should be no surprise that LeoVegas offer an excellent mobile sportsbook experience as well. The app is available on both the iOS and Google Play stores. The simplicity of their desktop site carries over to their mobile versions, both on mobile web and on the LeoVegas app, meaning that there's no compromise when placing your bets on the go.
Mobile players can also benefit from the same welcome bonus, odds and sports, that they would on the main desktop version.
All new LeoVegas customers in the UK will be able to benefit from the New Player Sports Bonus, which consists of two 100% Profit Boosts. At first, this seems to have the makings of an excellent welcome offer, but the maximum bet amount per Profit Boost is a mere £5, much lower than many of LeoVegas' more established competitors. The maximum odds for the two Profit Boosts are 20/1, and the maximum winning amount per Profit Boost is capped at £105. These stipulations ensure that your potential winnings are limited.
Players will be glad to know the wagering requirement is rather straightforward. All you need to do in order to convert your bonus funds to real money, is place your bet at odds of 1/2 or higher.
LeoVegas customers can score a full season of free bets by joining LeoVegas Football Club. This unique loyalty scheme rewards players for placing in-play bets on football - giving away free bets, bonuses and much more. The more monthly qualifying bets you place, the greater your reward.
Their Best Odds Guaranteed offer on Horse Racing ensures that regardless of any change in price, you will always earn the best winnings possible.
LeoVegas also offer a VIP experience 'fit for a King'. Climb the VIP rankings by placing real money bets, and watch your journey progress using the 'VIP bar'. VIP members have the chance to experience monthly prize draws, dedicated account managers and much more. With such a rewarding VIP club and attractive promotions covering two of the most popular sports, LeoVegas are doing a great job of rewarding loyal customers.
LeoVegas offer an impressive array of banking methods, including: MasterCard, Visa, Skrill, Netller and PayPal. However, the withdrawal times aren't as impressive, with some methods taking up to 5 days. Players will also have to accumulate winnings of at least £20 to make a withdrawal, and are limited to 3 free withdrawals per rolling 30 day period. Further withdrawals will be changed £3 each time. This may seem like too many hoops to jump through for less frequent bettors.

It's safe to say we're impressed by LeoVegas' sportsbook. They offer some of the better odds on the market and a great chance to get in on some live action with their in-play options. While the minimum withdrawal of £20 may discourage less frequent bettors, LeoVegas' Football Club and 'Best Odds Guaranteed' promotions ensure that high rollers are taken care of.
