In our LeoVegas review for 2024, we look into all the elements of this major casino brand. We review the sign-up procedure, the LeoVegas bonus offers, their games selection and what makes them one of the best NZ online casinos. We also look into mobile gaming, payment options, support, security and more.
Here are the key features we found during our LeoVegas review.
Signing Up with LeoVegas
The first task in our 2024 LeoVegas review was to sign up to the brand and see how simple it was. As we mostly bet on the move these days, we used the mobile site to join.
The process was very easy indeed. To sign up, simply follow these steps:
On the main page, hit either the ‘Get Welcome Offer’ or the ‘Play Now’ button.
Hit ‘Register Now’ at the bottom of the login page.
Choose your welcome bonus. Casino, live casino, bingo and sports offers are available. We have more information below. Then hit ‘Next Step’.
Enter your email address, phone number and choose a password.
Enter your name, address, date of birth. Agree to the terms then hit ‘Submit and Finish’.
To claim your bonus immediately, choose a deposit amount on the next page. You can also choose your payment method and set a deposit limit.
Your basic account is now live. You may be asked to verify your ID. If this happens, a simple upload of your driving licence, passport or ID card will suffice. The process is made very easy and a ‘contact us’ link is always there for you to hit should you encounter any problems.
LeoVegas Welcome Bonus
Our LeoVegas review found various offers. The main casino bonus offers Up to $1000 and 150 Free Spins. This bonus is split over three deposits. You can get up to $1000 from your first deposit and up to $500 per deposit over you second and third deposits
Key terms include:
- New players only.
- Offers disappear within 14 days of registering.
- Free spins must be used within 3 days of deposit.
- Wagering requirements apply.
- Full T&Cs apply.
As always with casino offers online, the wagering requirements are the main sticking point. In this case, our LeoVegas review found that the main wagering requirement for the deposit bonus is 20x the deposit amount. So, if you deposit $100, you’ll need to wager $2000 before you can cash out.
This is not the worst requirement we’ve seen in terms of the bare number, but within itself it comes with more terms as not all games contribute equally. Games contribute to the welcome offer like this:
- Slots – 100% (with the exception of the games listed below).
- Live Games – 0%
- Table Games – 10%
- Bingo Games in Bingo Lobby – 0%
- Video Poker – 10%
- All Other Games – 0%
- Specific Slots such as Blood Suckers, Dead or Alive, 1429 Uncharted Seas – 70%. Check T&Cs.
You should always keep this in mind. If you take the bonus but like to play live games, you won’t meet your requirements. There is a separate live casino bonus. Review all the terms carefully before you play.
Other LeoVegas Promotions
When you join, you can choose specific offers for Live Casino, Sports Betting and Bingo. As well as this, existing customers can grab promotions regularly online. As with other betting sites, LeoVegas will review their bonuses regularly so keep checking the ‘Promotions’ page. An example of their promos is:
- The $50k Summer Splash Mission. Play specific Yggdrasil to be in with a shout of landing some of the $50,000 prize pool.
- Game Show Saturdays. Each week there are 8 participating live game shows, with shares of $500 to win.
- Roulette Black Friday. Participating live roulette tables offer reward games as part of an in-game objective.
- Drops & Wins. Available in the casino and the live casino. There is a chance to win a share of $900,000 each month.
LeoVegas Games Selection
There is an excellent games selection in the casino, befitting one of the best betting sites online. Top slot titles include:
- Sweet Bonanza
- Book of Dead
- Outback Gold
- Money Train
- Gates of Olympus
Some games offer major progressive jackpots too. The quality and the quantity are excellent, with only the best developers used. You can choose from Top Games, Newest, Recommended, Jackpots, Pokies and handily, Ready to Drop.
We also found that you can also play classic casino table games during our LeoVegas review. Gaming options include versions of roulette, blackjack, hold’em poker, baccarat, craps and plenty more. The roulette section, for example, includes European and live versions.
We found the quality, speed and fun element of all online games to be excellent. There is a strong and wide bet range, meaning there’s something for everyone, while if you like to bet on the move, there are a number of games that even work best via mobile gaming.
It was a pleasure to find during our LeoVegas review that a loyalty program does exist. This sort of program often separates out the bad betting sites from the best betting sites. As soon as you join, you’ll see within your balance tab your VIP level.
The LeoVegas VIP Experience brings you treats and surprises as you play. There is a monthly prize draw, while what you can expect depends on your level. Tickets for draws are awarded according to how much you play and how much you bet. These are multiplied with your current VIP level.
The VIP experience is always under review. To see what’s on offer when you join, click on the VIP level bar within your balance tab and see what’s happening this month.
LeoVegas Mobile Gaming
Mobile gaming is often at the forefront of a review, as most of us now bet that way. Our LeoVegas review found a good, dedicated mobile app. In fact, it was an EGR Nordic Awards ‘Mobile Operator’ winner at one time. Its main features are:
- It’s free to download.
- It comes with Dark Mode technology, adjusting the screen to your surroundings.
- It comes with a smart interface, allowing you to choose your next game while still live on another.
- It comes with Face ID and Touch ID, allowing fast access.
- All gaming and betting options are included.
The colours and speed on the app are also superb. It is available for iOS and Android players. As well as the casino app, your other betting options are supported by apps. You can download a live casino app or sports betting app too. Each works very well, helping LeoVegas to stand out as one of the top betting sites.
If you don’t want to download the app, then the mobile site works just as well. The mobile site mirrors the main site and this way, you can skip easily between casino, live casino, bingo and sports betting, which is very convenient indeed.
Payment and Withdrawal Options
All the payment options we found in our review are safe and secure. Currently, LeoVegas accepts the following payment methods:
Each comes with a $10 minimum. There are no fees attached, though your credit card company or eWallet may make their own charges. We’d like to have seen PayPal added here, and overall, this isn’t a huge list for one of the top betting sites.
eWallet cash outs are often instant. For credit or debit card payments, this may take a little longer. All payments made via any method should hit your account within five working days anyway, often much sooner.
While we’ve concentrated mostly on slots and casino games, there are other features offered by LeoVegas.
- Live Casino: This comes with its own welcome bonus. There are lots of betting options, with live versions of some classic table games offered. Real dealers are used to offering a great experience.
- Bingo: The bingo betting section offers eight uniquely themed games.
- Sports: Though there are undoubtedly better specialised sports betting sites out there, it’s an advantage to see a sports section within a top casino site. Betting is available on football, tennis, golf, eSports and much more.
- Dedicated Apps: You can download free iOS or Android apps. They are available for casino, live casino, bingo and sports.
- Promotions: As we mentioned, the promos here change regularly and are designed to keep us entertained.
LeoVegas is certainly not without its extra features, most of them hitting the spot. For a predominantly casino-based site, the sports betting section is good, and its odds are more than fair. You can also bet on sports live, which means there is no real need to join a different, speciality sports betting brand.
Support and Security
The headline is that LeoVegas can be reached 24 hours a day. You can get in touch with the team via their live chat system, which you’ll find at the bottom right of the screen on the main site. There is also an email option. The latter option should only be used if your query is not urgent.
We always recommend using live chat, as this way, you can get your responses not only in writing but also instantly. We found that the staff here are polite, friendly and knowledgeable. You can also check out the FAQ section first, as many common problems are solved already right here without the need for players to have to get in touch.
During our LeoVegas review, we noticed no problems in terms of security. The site is fully encrypted, which keeps your data and your money completely safe. LeoVegas works with lots of industry leaders to ensure this remains the case.
They are licensed in Malta and are fully regulated online. Also, you are able, as a player here, to set time limits and deposit limits to remain in control. Their responsible gaming and privacy policies are fully up to date, leaving us with no worries.
There’s little not to like about LeoVegas. Whether you like a sports bet, bingo, or you simply concentrate on betting on slot machines, you are covered here. Signing up is very fast and simple while the welcome bonus can be expensive if you want to go big but otherwise will give you something extra to bet with, as well as free spins.
There is a strong selection of games here, you can bet on live casino games, and you’ll have access to customer service 24 hours a day. We’d like to see more payment options added, but apart from that, this brand remains one of the strongest on offer in New Zealand right now.
