LeoVegas is perhaps better known for its online casino than its sportsbook. Nonetheless, though, LeoVegas Sports is still one of the safest, and most trusted sportsbooks in the online gambling world. Launched just after their casino in 2012, LeoVegas is able to offer betting on a wide variety of sporting events, and you can even use your LeoVegas Sports account to play in their casino, and live casino websites, too.
LeoVegas Sports is operated by LeoVegas Gaming, Ltd, and most of their audience comes from Northern Europe. Gameplay is available in English, Finnish, German, Norwegian, and Swedish, with players able to choose between the euro and Swedish kronor currencies when playing at this sportsbook. Irish players are naturally going to want to use the euro for their affairs, and that is perfectly possible at this online sportsbook.
Players will note that LeoVegas Sportsbook has considerably fewer promotions and bonuses than most other major sportsbooks on the net. Most of their bonuses and promotions are based on the live sporting events that they carry, and these alternate on a fairy regular basis.
The standard welcome bonus which is available to new players can be used between the various LeoVegas websites as you alter your style of gameplay. However, the official sportsbook welcome bonus consists of two double-your-money offers. Two 100% double odds bonuses (known as Profit Boosts) are available for newbies at this site.
If you want to claim a larger bonus, the online casino's welcome offer can see you able to pocket up to €1,500 worth of cash, as well as 120 free spins on slots. Anything you win those can easily be shipped over to the sportsbook, for use on your favourite sporting events.
LeoVegas Sports has the same look as its casino and live dealer casino website. That is to say, a bold, user-friendly and indeed mobile-friendly look. Players can quickly move from site to site, select their favourite sporting events, or access the promotions, support, or their account page via the three main menu bars which run across the top of the sportsbook.
By and large, most of the sporting events carried at LeoVegas Sports are football related. You will find the latest Premier League, Allsvenskan, and La Liga games, alongside other major sporting events such as the Swedish Hockey League, the National Hockey League, and NBA basketball at this website.
Other betting markets include American football, Australian Rules football, badminton, baseball, boxing, chess, cricket, curling, cycling, darts, e-sports, floorball, golf, greyhounds, handball, horse racing, ice hockey, motorsports, netball, pesapallo, politics, rugby league, rugby union, snooker, surfing, tennis, trotting, TV and novelty bets, UFC/MMA, volleyball, winter Olympic games, winter sports, wrestling (WWE), and yachting. Irish fans may be disappointed to find that Gaelic football is not supported at LeoVegas, but plenty of other popular Irish sports most certainly are.
Odds appear decimalised at LeoVegas Sports, and there does not appear to be a way to change that.
Players can expect to be able to see some nifty stats and information about the sporting events which are carried at LeoVegas Sports. However, this is not a bona fide sportsbook, and most of their efforts do still focus on their casino. Because of this, LeoVegas Sports cannot provide users with streaming capabilities. Despite that, LeoVegas Casino does still offer live bets to players eager to place a last-minute bet before the final whistle.
LeoVegas Sports doesn't need an app for you to be able to place bets on the move. The way that this sportsbook has been designed means that Irish sports fans can stake bets on their favourite games on the go anyway, with the simple to use instant play edition of LeoVegas Sports via their phone or tablet's web browser.
LeoVegas Sports does not offer an early cash-out option, even with their live in-play sports bets.
Players can deposit, and wager using instant bank transfers, MasterCard, Paysafecard, VISA, wire transfers, Neteller, Sofort, or Trustly. Withdrawals are handled via bank wire, Neteller, or VISA, giving players limited options in the payment method department.
LeoVegas Sports is licensed out of Malta, and the United Kingdom. This enables to offer sports bets to players all over Northern Europe, and indeed far beyond. LeoVegas is one of the safest places you can play your favourite games, and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with their support team via telephone (toll-charged), live chat, e-form or e-mail.
