Founded in 2011 by a couple of Swedes, and now publicly traded on the Nasdaq, LeoVegas quickly took the online gaming world by storm with its sports, casino and live casino offering. If you haven’t yet heard of it, that’s because this relative newbie is mostly making its mark overseas in the Nordic countries and the UK. But luckily for us, it’s also opened its virtual doors to Canadian players, so you too can get in on all the fabulousness it contains.
The LeoVegas welcome bonus: The site itself lists it as $1000 plus 120 free spins. But when you click through you find a bit of a different matter, with no more than 100 free spins available, and if you read the fine print, to UK players only. So, what that leaves you with, as a Canadian, is the bonus cash only, which is awarded as follows:
You likely noted for yourself that the bonus percent is missing. That’s because it’s dependent on the amount you deposit. So for example, if you make the first deposit of $50 or more, you will receive a 200% bonus up to $200. If you deposit less than $50, then you will receive a 100% bonus up to $100.
Clearing your bonus requires meeting the 35X wagering requirement: Most slots wagers contribute 100% towards playthrough, with games like video poker and roulette contributing just 10%. Keep in mind, deposits made with NETELLER or Skrill are not eligible for the welcome bonus at all.
The quality of the welcome bonus: The sum of $1000 is certainly on the high side, and 35X is on the low end for wagering requirements. But its lack of clarity is a bit of a turnoff for those who like to know exactly what they’re getting from the get-go.
Over 30 casino software providers: LeoVegas has probably the biggest, most mixed online casino games offering you will encounter quite literally anywhere. That’s because it partners with over 30 casino software providers, to bring the best-of-the-best to your screen. These include top casino developers like Playtech, NetEnt and Microgaming, as well as dozens of names in the world of boutique casino software.
Over 600 Online Slots: In the slots department alone, LeoVegas casino has over 600. At last count, in fact, it was some 628 online slot machines and seems to be growing each time we check. There is also an extremely impressive roulette offering with 38 different online roulette games (more than we knew existed!).
Extensive live casino: Delivering real-time gaming in HD quality, streamed from 10 different locations in Europe, direct to your computer screen. Here you’ll enjoy some truly unique live gaming with the unprecedented experience of games like the LeoVegas Celebrity Blackjack Party table or the LeoVegas Chambre Séparée where you can enjoy a totally personalized play.
LeoVegas sports: You can also access LeoVegas sports with your casino account. While it’s the same username and password, note that bonuses apply differently to each site.
Mobile gaming company: LeoVegas mobile has an important advantage over competitors and that is that LeoVegas itself is first and foremost a mobile gaming company. And knowing that accessibility is key to a good mobile casino experience, it has created a browser-based app, that lets you access a huge range of games, without the need for download. Just open your iPhone, Android tablet, or Windows device, go to Leovegas.com, and log in. That being said (and our preferred method of mobile play), it’s nice to note that there is also an Android app (from the website) and an iOS app (from the App Store) that you can download if that’s the way you roll.
Canadian dollars are accepted at LeoVegas: So that’s a good start. A respectable range of payment methods can be used, and include many of those favored by Canadians like NETELLER, MasterCard, Visa, and Skrill.
The minimum deposit is $10: As for timing, deposits are generally processed instantly, so if you don’t see a deposit you’ve made pop up on your screen, try to refresh the page.
Withdrawals: You will receive them within 5 business days of making your withdrawal request. You can withdraw three times per month for free; after that, a $3 fee applies to each withdrawal. The minimum you can withdraw at one time is $20. The maximum you can withdraw per month is $100,000 as a regular player and $300,000 as a top level VIP (though special agreements can be reached with management).
As a multi-award winning online casino, including Mobile Operator of the Year 2016 (EGR Nordic Awards) and Casino Operator of the Year 2016 (Gaming Intelligence Awards), LeoVegas has a lot of hype to live up to. Luckily here, the mighty roar is a true emblem of the mighty online casino experience to come, with probably the most exceptional game offering you’ll encounter anywhere. Period.
