If the name LeoVegas rings any bells for you, it's probably because you've heard or even tried out the casino site that was launched in 2011 by online veterans Gustaf Hagman and Robin Ericxxon. The sportsbook part of the site only broke cover in May 2016, but it's already made a big impression on the UK's many avid sports betting fans.
Whether you bet on sports via the main desktop site or the dedicated mobile app, you will be greeted by a similarly stunning orange interface - albeit, the latter has been beautifully designed to work well on a smaller smartphone or tablet screen. The site is highly intuitive to navigate, while both desktop and mobile users can access the site's casino and live casino sections via the same interface.
LeoVegas Sports certainly covers the most obvious sports betting markets, including football, tennis, horse racing and darts, but you'll also find a fair few lesser-spotted disciplines like bandy, floorball, handball, trotting and pesapallo - we suspect that you may have never heard of some of those! Middle-ground options like rugby league, snooker and baseball are on offer too, of course.
Click 'Support' in the top left-hand corner of the screen, and you'll open up a comprehensive section consisting of useful FAQs on such matters as your account, bonuses and more, as well as contact options including UK free phone, an international phone number, email and - for the quickest response to your query - 'live chat'.
If your idea of a great online sportsbook is one that also enables you to dabble in top quality slots, roulette and other casino games, you will be well served by LeoVegas and its extremely far-reaching casino and live casino sections. But even if you're only here for the sports betting, you should appreciate such features as live betting and - of course - that amazing mobile app.
LeoVegas has claimed no shortage of accolades - including 'Mobile Operator of the Year 2016' at the EGR Nordic Awards and 'Best Innovation in Mobile and Tablet' at the EGR Innovation Awards - and with good reason. The site especially excels in offering its mobile players as great a betting experience as those accessing it purely through desktop can enjoy.
You'll find many of the usual online bookie deposit and withdrawal options at LeoVegas Sports, encompassing the ever-dependable Visa and MasterCard traditional payment cards, e-wallets such as Neteller, Skrill and paysafecard, and finally, Trustly, which isn't exactly the most commonly spotted payment method on sites like this one.
Although LeoVegas members can make their first three withdrawals of each month completely free of charge, any subsequent withdrawals in the same month will incur a fee. In most cases, a member's money will appear in their account the day after they withdraw it, but processing times can be as long as five business days, depending on what bank they are using.
Admittedly, if you are seeking an online sportsbook with a dazzling array of extra features beyond the basic betting, there may be better options than LeoVegas Sports. However, the site is still very new compared to most bookmakers online, and its sheer graphical and design flair - on both desktop and mobile - cannot be doubted. Those promos - especially the new members' one and the VIP program - are certainly tempting, too.
