Really well laid out and visually stunning.
A huge range of slot games and table games.
A sportsbook on top of everything else.
Great customer service.
There have been a few past problems with the time it takes to withdraw, even though the niggles are in the past.
Combining the heart of a lion, with the dreams and delight of Las Vegas, LeoVegas has positioned itself as one of the most attractive and alluring casinos on the market and in Ireland. They have established themselves as a big hitter and is definitely one of the best-known casinos out there. But, just because a casino is well-known doesn’t necessarily mean it’s great. So, I decided to sign up, and do a bit of homework, to see what all the fuss was about. Is LeoVegas a good bet for Irish casino players? Let’s find out.
The casino itself was established and launched in 2012, so it’s still relatively new in the industry. But, five years is still a decent chunk of time to be in the industry, and they’ve clearly made use of it. In fact, this year they won Casino Operator of the Year at the EGR Nordic Awards, as well as Online Casino Operator of the Year at the prestigious International Gaming Awards. They are definitely a casino that looks to be going places – so far so good.

But, it’s not just the Welcome Bonuses that are great here, they also have regular promotions that change and update. Some of the current ones include a Blackjack bonus, Spin to Win, Summer Thrills, and free sports bonuses and bets. The bonus and promotion section here is one of the most attractive I’ve seen. And, with wagering requirements of x35, you have a great chance of winning big from your bonuses.
Remember, as with all of the bonuses and promotions listed on this site they are correct at the time of publishing and come with their own terms and conditions. We are not responsible if the bonuses or promotions change.
The games offered by a casino can be the difference between keeping me as a member and seeing me go elsewhere. I like variety, range, and innovation, and I like to feel as though I’m getting my money’s worth. LeoVegas has one of the best and most in-depth selection of games I have encountered at an online casino. There are 721 slots games here, making this Mecca for slots fans in Ireland (I know there’s a few of us). Games like Starburst, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Mega Moolah are some of the leading slots in the industry, and you can play them all here.
But, it’s not just the slots games that appeal here, as there are over 50 table games to choose from as well, including 19 different variants of Blackjack. I’m the kind of player who loves to enjoy table games because I feel like I’m getting my money’s worth a bit more in that sense. And there is definitely enough of a spread here to sate my desire for table gaming. And, on top of all of this, there are almost 50 Live Casino games as well, making LeoVegas one of the go-to casinos for Live gaming. I would recommend the Speed Live Roulette and the Live Caribbean Stud Poker!
One of the things I love the most about this casino is that they have a sportsbook attached as well. I love a flutter on the football now and again, and there is so much scope to do that here. You can bet on all kinds of sports, and get some great odds in the process. This adds another dimension to your casino experience and makes the whole thing much more immersive.
Under the ‘About’ section you will find a list of all the partnerships LeoVegas has with providers in the industry. Such heavyweights as NetEnt and iSoftBet are on the list. But, there are also other software providers you may be less familiar with, like GameVy, Fantasma, and Openbet. I was incredibly impressed by how many partnerships LeoVegas has, and it made me trust the casino even more.
Winnings & Payouts
With so many games to choose from, there are ample opportunities for scooping big wins. Just have a look at some of the jackpot amounts on the site. For instance, Mega Moolah, the famed millionaire-maker, has a jackpot total available of just under €3.5 million currently!
Payouts at LeoVegas are something of a mixed bag, from what I’ve found. I personally had no issues at all with them in terms of payouts, but, historically, there have been problems. Both The POGG and UK Trustpilot have noted issues with customer withdrawals in the past, as well as inconsistent approaches. This is certainly something that is worth pausing and thinking about. However, it does seem like they’ve sorted this issue out in recent years. And, like I say, my experience was perfectly fine.
LeoVegas Customer Service
The customer support really endears this casino to me. This is how all casinos should set up their support and customer service. There’s an entire Support section, with issues split into FAQ boxes for individual things like Account, Bonuses, and Withdrawals. By scrolling down, you have the button for a fast and informative Live Chat – just make sure you enable your cookies, or you won’t be able to use it! There’s also an email contact form, and three phone numbers to choose from. The customer support here really is second to none.
I love the fact that I’m able to take my iPhone with me anywhere and have instant access to online casino gaming. So many casinos have realised these days that mobile is the way to go, and LeoVegas are definitely one. Their slots games are perfectly suited to the mobile format, and the scaled down version is wonderfully easy to use. The casino even won Best Native App at the 2017 EGR Marketing and Innovation Awards, and that should give you an idea of how great their mobile app is. Compatible with iPhone and Android, no matter what smartphone you have, this is the perfect mobile casino to make your fortune.
Visual aesthetic can make or break it for a casino, and LeoVegas are evidently aware of this. In terms of colour-scheme, they’ve gone with a combination of bronze and pale orange, and it works surprisingly well. It’s a site I very much enjoy looking at, and it’s incredibly easy to navigate, so that’s two thumbs up already.
The top banner proudly displays their lion logo, as well as providing a section that allows you to sign up, log in, contact support, and view promotions. Under this are tabs for the Casino, Live Casino, and Sports sections. Then, below this are more tabs showcasing the different types of games on offer. This is neat, simple to use and just simply works. I can access all the games I want to using the tabs, and find any section of the casino with ease and efficiency. In terms of appearance, LeoVegas has definitely hot a homerun here. I am highly impressed, and it bodes well for the rest of the review.
There are so many things to love about LeoVegas, it’s just a shame they are let down by a few apparent past issues. The rest of the casino is pretty much perfect, but trust is a massive thing for me, so I have to drop the rating accordingly – though I’m prepared to raise it if LeoVegas shows they have changed their ways.
