Leo Vegas Sport Introduction
Swedish owned Leo Vegas exploded onto the mobile gaming scene back in 2012, after founders Gustaf Hagman and Robin Ramm-Ericson decided to focus exclusively on mobile casino gaming. Aided by the dramatic increase in the number of people using smart phones and tablets, the company grew exponentially and by 2016 was listed in the Stockholm Stock Exchange.
In 2016 Leo Vegas launched its sportsbook, Leo Vegas Sport, capitalizing on years of experience in mobile interface design to launch a sleek, elegant, easy to use product with some of the fastest loading times in the business.
Site design and user interface
As specialists in mobile design Leo Vegas knows that when deployed the right way, simplicity is genius.
Available for iOS and Android, done up in orange and white with simple easy to use icons, the Leo Vegas mobile app is a work of functionalist art in its own right. To register you simply click ‘Bet Now’ and fill in the simple form and you’re on the main page.
Unlike many other sportsbooks’ mobile apps, the Leo Vegas app does not give you a seemingly never-ending list of sports on the left side bar with endless submenus. Instead punters immediately select their sport of choice and are presented with a concise array of options, a design feature that clearly accelerates the process of placing your bets.
As soon as you select your sport, a click of the button will take you to the odds page, a mobile sensitive design feature that definitely worked for us. There was no need to shuffle through multiple pages to find what you’re looking for.
Moreover, we were big fans of the super simple two touch betting system. Once you’ve found your game and seen the odds on the odds page, one tap and the betting slip elegantly slides up from the bottom of the screen. Again, another mobile sensitive design feature that eliminates the need to load another page or use tabs. Once the slip appears you enter your choice and click ‘place bet” and you’re off to the races.
Intended to make sure there is something for everyone, Leo Vegas offers some 36 different sports to choose from, which is about as comprehensive as sportsbooks get these days. As Leo Vegas partners with the Kambi Group, the same company that runs the 888sport and Unibet platforms, to power their backend, they can focus on value propositions, meaning that the odds on Leo Sport are excellent.
While they offer a standard array of possible bets from single score, to aacu and in-play bets, one thing that impressed us was the generous sign up bonus which offers two 100% profit boosts, doubling your potential winnings on your first two bets.
Thanks in large part to their exclusive focus on the mobile platform, when it comes to mobile betting apps we found Leo Vegas to be one of our clear favourites. Designed with mobile users in mind from the outset, instead of attempting to scale an existing site to smaller screens, means that the Leo Vegas app has a distinct advantage in terms of ease of use and overall functionality.
