Review of LeoVegas Casino

Leo is one of the twelve constellations of the zodiac and is most commonly depicted as a lion due to the shape its stars make in the night sky representing a lion to ancient astronomers. I can only assume they were high on the wacky weed because you need a very good imagination to see it. You may well know that Leo is in fact the latin word for lion, but did you also know that it was named after the Nemean Lion that Hercules killed as one of his twelve labours in Greek mythology? Me neither, but enough of the mythology lesson, what does this have to do with a casino? From what we can see here, nothing apart from the name and logo. Perhaps it will be your lucky casino if Leo is your star sign!
Software and games selection

LeoVegas is a browser-based casino that can be played on any computer with a web browser that supports the almost ubiquitous flash plugin. It offers games from developers such as Net Entertainment, Play’n Go, NextGen, and a couple of Microgaming Quickfire titles. In all, there are over 200 slot machines to pick from and they are presented in an attractive grid arrangement that you can either scroll through or use the handy search box to find your favourite titles. All games are available for free play on the website with no registration required, so you can try the games freely before you decide to wager your cash.

The titles include the latest and greatest Net Entertainment games such as Eggomatic, Starburst, Magic Portals, and Gonzo’s Quest. We also came across a couple of games we had not seen before from a company known as Yggdrasil, namely Jokerizer and Winter Berries. Both games look absolutely spectacular and are prime examples of game developers raising the bar in terms of sheer quality.

Jackpot chasers are well catered for at LeoVegas, with potential multi-million Euro progressives such as Mega Fortune, Hall of Gods, and Mega Moolah all available for you to try your luck at. There are also several other jackpots on games such as Caribbean Stud, Video and Classic Slots, and even virtual horse racing. LeoVegas offers a variety of live dealer games including Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette, Casino Hold’em, and Three Card Poker, which is a couple more than what you normally find at casinos these days. In addition a limited selection of the games are available for play on your mobile phone or device.
Favourable bonus rules

One thing we must mention about LeoVegas are the excellent bonus conditions which allow you to forfeit your bonus and withdraw immediately if you hit a big win. The way it works is this: when you deposit and claim a bonus, you wager with your cash deposit first, and your bonus funds are only wagered after your cash balance falls to zero. If you have a win before that happens, you have the choice to withdraw your cash balance and forfeit the bonus funds without being locked into completing the wagering requirements. However once you wager even a single Euro of your bonus funds, you must complete the wagering requirements, just like every other casino. This is a simple and effective system that is far better and dare we say fairer than the majority of bonuses that we have seen elsewhere. In fact the only thing bad we could say about this is that there is only a limited handful of countries that the casino allows to claim bonuses.
Customer support and banking

Customer support at LeoVegas is what we have come to expect from an online casinos these days. Available 24/7, operators can be contacted via live chat which can be accessed via a tab which is on the bottom right of every page. The support crew can also be contacted by email, phone, and web form. I was very impressed when contacting live chat to ask how long it would take for my identification documents to be processed and the chat operator asked me to hold on, then informed me that they were processed around 2 minutes later. No “waiting on the security or finance department” excuses that we hear so often, instead they handled it immediately.

Depositing money at LeoVegas can be accomplished using credit and debit cards and common e-wallets. The list of alternatives is not long, but the casino only accepts players from European countries that should have no problem using any of the accepted methods. We were mighty impressed by the speed of our test cashout. After my above-mentioned chat with support, I had my money back in my Skrill account within 2 hours. So the speed is fantastic, but perhaps not so fantastic for the high rollers are the daily, weekly and monthly withdrawal caps which effectively limit you to withdrawing no more than 5000 per week. Also note that large wins over 100,000 will be paid over 10 monthly instalments. These limits are our only major gripe with this casino.
