LeoVegas has been one of the latest players to join the gaming sector in Philippines. Although it was created in 2012, until June 2019 it did not obtain the corresponding licenses from the AGCO to operate both sports betting and slots and casino games, its strong point. In addition to Philippines, LeoVegas is also active in other Latin American countries such as Peru or Chile, although it is based in Malta, like many other bookmakers.

If there is something that stands out in LeoVegas, it is its orientation to mobile devices. With an online gaming market filled with companies that offer their application as an extra, LeoVegas is an operator mainly oriented towards gaming from mobile phones or tablets with one of the most powerful applications on the market. In fact, it has received several awards for its excellent app for mobile devices.
What does LeoVegas offer us?
LeoVegas is a betting company that is different from what we are used to, mainly due to its focus on mobile devices, although we can also make the most of it from the computer. Their odds boosters that can be obtained with their interesting promotions are also radically innovative, and practically do not exist in the rest of betting companies.
Web browsing is also somewhat different from what is typical with other operators, though not necessarily more complex. At the top, we have the usual links to the help section, promotions, or buttons to log in and access Leo Vegas Casino, as well as the "View Sports" button, where a drop-down menu appears that allows Philippines to select which sports and competitions we want to view on the screen. Additionally, you can see multiple competitions at once, including different sports.
The left side of the homepage prominently features the live section, which we can change to display upcoming events. The right margin of the screen is dedicated to special bets and favorites, as this bookie allows Philippines to select our favorite sports or competitions for quick access, without having to search for them every time we log in. We also have the help button available and easily visible at all times.
We have a wide variety of sports, events, and markets to choose from, and the best part is that the odds they offer are usually very good. We have enough methods for managing funds, and if we're talking about a mobile-focused betting platform, it goes without saying that it has an excellent application. The live betting section is also not bad, but let's go into more detail about all of these aspects.
Sports and markets
LeoVegas offers Philippines around thirty sports to bet on, including football, tennis, basketball, motorcycling, and Formula 1. We can also bet on WWE/Pro Wrestling and very minority or autochthonous sports such as cricket, Australian football, Gaelic sports, floorball, or netball. The variety of competitions is not bad, as it includes leagues and tournaments from different countries and levels, offering users a wide range of options to bet on.
The variety of markets offered is also impressive. In sports like football, we find the usual bets, as well as Asian bets -not statistical bets-, in basketball we can surpass thirty markets in a good match, and in a WTA tennis match we can also reach a dozen bets, including bets on sets... It is true that in sports betting such as cycling, athletics, or motor racing, some markets allow Philippines to bet on the podium, but we miss bets on G/C.
LeoVegas' odds are one of its strong points. Generally, they are above the average of what different bookmakers offer, but it is not surprising to find events where the odds offered by LeoVegas are the highest, or are equal at the very top with another bookie. It is very rare to find that the LeoVegas odds are the lowest, although logically there will be sports or specific markets where their odds weaken slightly. Nonetheless, LeoVegas' odds are quite good.
Live section (live betting)
We have an interesting variety of sports to bet on live, although logically the ones that take all the attention are tennis, football and basketball. In the main menu, we see the live result and the odds for the winner of the match, but if we enter any event, a good catalog of bets opens up, such as the next goal scorer, winner of the set, game or even point, point race... Additionally, in sports such as football, we have comprehensive statistical information.
Accepted payment methods
We found nothing surprising about the payment methods offered by PayPal, but also nothing particularly negative beyond the absence of PayPal, a regular in online gaming operators that is not available. Thus, we can deposit at LeoVegas using credit or debit cards Visa, Visa Electron, Maestro and MasterCard, transfers via Trustly, with PaySafeCard prepaid cards or through Skrill and Neteller, two e-wallets that prevent Philippines from accessing the welcome offer.
The process for managing withdrawals is virtually the same. We can receive the payment to our credit or debit card, Neteller or Skrill account, or through a bank transfer - the biggest innovation in methods for depositing. Whether it's deposits or withdrawals, the minimum amount is $10. Deposits are available almost instantly, but withdrawals take at least 24 hours to verify the recipient's identity and/or for operational reasons, such as with bank transfers.
How to register and deposit at LeoVegas?
Registering at LeoVegas is as easy as clicking on the white "Open account" button located at the top of the screen. A form will open where we will need to enter our personal and contact details, as well as choose a username and password and the welcome offer we want between sports betting, casino, and live casino. Now you can make a deposit and start playing.
In order to complete any deposit, you must log in and access your user area, where you will see the deposit option. You simply need to indicate the amount to be deposited - always respecting the minimum deposit of $10 - and select the method with which you will complete the deposit. Keep in mind that deposits are limited to $600 per day, $1,500 per week, and $3,000 per month, but you can reduce these amounts.
Leo Vegas App
If LeoVegas is a mobile-oriented betting company, it is expected to have an app that is up to par, and that is the case. You can download the app for free from the App Store if you are an iOS user, or from LeoVegas' website if you are an Android user and manually install it, as the Play Store does not offer apps related to the gaming sector.
The LeoVegas app has received several awards, such as the Best Native App (EGR Marketing and Innovation Awards 2017), Mobile Casino Product of The Year (EGR Operator Awards 2017) and the award for Best innovation in mobile and tablets (EGR Innovation Awards 2016). It is always preferable to play from the app rather than the web version, but even if you do not want to install it, you can still bet without problems with your mobile or tablet in the browser, since the web adapts to this type of device.
The fact that 7 years have passed since LeoVegas started its activity and obtained licenses to operate in Philippines, combined with the fact that it is an unknown operator with an investment in advertising light years away from other online betting and casino companies, can lead the most fearful players to doubt this operator. However, it should be noted that playing at LeoVegas is 100% safe, both from the website and from the app. Even if you have to install it manually on Android, it doesn't pose any risk to your device.
As previously mentioned, LeoVegas has the corresponding licenses from the AGCO to operate in Philippines, and that license is the best guarantee of quality and honesty. In addition, they take the necessary measures to ensure the protection of their players' data and funds. As expected, their website displays logos for Responsible Gaming, Self-Exclusion, Safe Gaming, and +18.
One of the most remarkable features of LeoVegas customer support service is the phone number +34 518 808 223, which indicates that it's Spanish but doesn't seem like it at first glance except for the +34 prefix. It's a voice IP number, which, despite not having a special pricing, is usually not included in the operators' flat-rate tariff. If you call, the call will be charged as if you were calling a conventional number, appearing on the bill.
If you want to save yourself the call, you can look for the solution to your problem in the LeoVegas customer service chat or by sending an email to [email protected]. Another option to consider is to visit the LeoVegas Help Center, where we can consult the FAQs related to issues such as fund management, account management, bonus management, or sports betting.
LeoVegas: Opinions and conclusion
We mentioned at the beginning that LeoVegas is a betting house designed for playing from mobile devices, although the experience from the computer is also 100% satisfactory. And once you try it, the expectations are confirmed. The application meets what we can expect from it, and the live betting section, which should be one of LeoVegas' strengths, also leaves Philippines satisfied both for the variety of bets offered and for the information provided about each event.
Fees, one of the key points for any bookmaker, are usually among the most interesting, so we cannot complain in this regard. In addition, we have a wide variety of sports and events to bet on. The variety of markets offered within each sport is also not bad, and what we bet on in bets serves to add points to the VIP Club.
In the chapter of aspects to improve, we could mention the absence of PayPal in the payment methods or the non-existence of a free customer service phone number. Ultimately, we are facing a very complete betting house, with a potential even superior to other bookies with much more name.
