Founded in 2007, LeonBet has been offering a wide range of betting opportunities for many years now and this includes sports betting, esports betting, virtual sports and casino gaming. In this LeonBet review we’ll take a closer look at what this site has to offer its customers with a brief look at some of the key aspects of the site.
LeonBet is a solid site, but it is very much more in depth when it comes to casino gaming than it is for sports betting and esports betting. That’s not to say those services are poor, they aren’t, but they are not as extensive as you would find on other sites which offer similar services.
You may be wondering what LeonBet mobile services are available? Well the site is available on mobile browsers across all devices and there is a LeonBet app available for download for Android devices (the iOS app is only available in Russia). All in all, it’s a solid choice for mobile esports betting and sports betting fans.
As a site with many facets, LeonBet isn’t an esports betting specialist, but what it offers is generally the most popular esports events, at decent value odds with the betting markets most people want to bet on.
LeonBet Esports Betting Markets: CS:GO, Dota 2, LoL and others
Our main interest with this LeonBet review is where the site ranks compared to other esports betting sites. Clicking on the esports section reveals a relatively easy to follow esports section. There are all the usual options available, so you can indulge in your Dota 2 betting of choice, have a wager on League of Legends or CSGO, plus there are other esports tournaments for other esports available to bet on here too.
That includes events in Call of Duty, Overwatch, StarCraft 2, Valorant and Wild Rift.
The markets available are not that in depth to be honest, especially when compared to specialist esports betting providers, but there are the markets that are most popular with punters, especially for the ‘big three’ esports.
You will find that LeonBet is not the most in depth of LoL, Dota 2 or CSGO betting sites, but the markets they have are the most popular and cover most basis, while the odds on offer are generally around or slightly above the average.
LeonBet Sports: Good value odds for your sports betting
There are around 20 or so different sports to enjoy when betting at LeonBet Sports and these include popular sports such as football, ice hockey, tennis, basketball, boxing darts, cricket, snooker MMA and more.
The variety of betting options isn’t quite on a par with some of the giants in the betting industry, but what the site does offer is a good range of the most popular bets, with good value odds on the key markets.
Navigating across the site is easy enough, whether on the website or the mobile service, and for the vast majority of sports fans, you will find everything you need to enjoy sports betting on the site.
However, horse racing fans should be aware that LeonBet does not, at the time of compiling out Leonbet review, offer this form of betting on the site.
That said, the site does offer a good range of In Play betting options for customers too and that is also the case for esports betting too.
LeonBet Casino: A wide range of games from top providers
LeonBet casino is actually named LeonBet Slots on the site, but it is something of a misnomer as alongside the wide range of different slots available, there are also plenty of other casino offerings such as table games, scratch cards and video poker.
You can also find a wide range of Megaways slots, slots that offer jackpots as prizes, as well as number of other other games such as keno and bingo games amongst others.
One nice touch is that you can demo play many games before you wager any money on them, a fact which LeonBet casino has an advantage over other casinos, many of whom do not offer this simple but often effective way of attracting customers.
The sheer range of casino games at LeonBet Casino means that you won’t be short of options and when you add the wide variety of Live Casino games also available, as well as the TV Games (more about that below), which also feature live hosts, then you have a casino offering that is amongst the very best you will find.
LeonBet TV Games: Join your entertaining hosts
LeonBet TV Games are an extension of the Live Casino and offer players the chance to play a wide range of games, some of which are adaptations of famous casino games. One of those games is Wheel of Fortune, which is a similar but simplified version of roulette, but there are plenty of other TV games to try including Dice Duel, War of Bets, 6+ Poker, Lucky 5, Lucky 6 and Lucky 7 plus Classic Wheel.
LeonBet Bonus: Is there a welcome offer?
When it comes to a signing up LeonBet bonus, customers can select from a casino and a sports book welcome offer and in our view, the sports book offering is probably the better value of the two different options.
- As a new customer, just sign up with LeonBet and then head on over to the promotions section on the site. Find the LeonBet bonus for sportsbook and then click the Opt In button displayed on the page to activate the bonus on your account.
- You then need to make a deposit into your account of at least €5 ($6) and when you do you will receive a free bet worth €11 placed in your account.
- You then have 48 hours to place your Free Bet as a single bet on any pre-match, or In Play betting market. This can of course be used on esports betting if you wish.
- Once you place your free bet, if you win then you will not only receive your winnings, but you will also get another free bet of €11 credited to your account. You can then do this a total of 20 times to earn a maximum of €300 in Free Bets.
Any winnings from this offer are transferred to your bonus account and you then have 200 hours within which to complete the wagering requirements for the bonus in order to be able to withdraw the cash.
Payments: Making Deposits and Withdrawals with LeonBet
Any LeonBet review has to consider the different payment options available with the site and the good news for customers is that the site does offer an extensive range of payment options both for deposits and withdrawals.
The types of payment methods available to you can vary from country to country, so you may need to check-up which specific methods are available where you live, but some of the most common options include Visa and MasterCard, Paysafecard, Skrill, Neteller and ecoPayz.
The site also accepts payments in a variety of cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum and Tether. Which is always a bonus for those customers that want to deposit using more modern and ultra-secure payment methods.
When it comes to making a withdrawal, there are not quite so many options available, and most withdrawals are completed between 1 and 3 days of the initial request. Options available include Visa, Skrill, Neteller, ecopayz, plus cryptocurrency options Tether, Ethereum and Bitcoin.
One thing this Leonbet review should note is that there are low limits for deposits and withdrawals with some payment options allowing deposits and withdrawals of a minimum of $2, though some crypto options (Bitcoin, Tether and Ethereum) have much higher minimum rates.
Security & License: Is LeonBet legit, safe and secure?
LeonBet is one of the growing number of sports, esports and casino sites that now operate under the license granted by the Government of Curacao.
Not too long ago, we’d have had to say in this LeonBet review that this would be a concern to us, but we are happy to report that the Government of Curacao has really tightened up the process by which it grants licenses in the last few years.
So much so that an increasing number of companies are seeking to get the license because it is now viewed as a clear indication that the company takes the security and safety of its customers and their details very seriously.
With a commitment to responsible gaming, high levels of security for your personal details, included encryption of your data and details for transactions, plus extensive customer support options, LeonBet does have a solid and secure reputation for being a safe site for its customers.
LeonBet Review: How do we feel about this site?
All in all, this LeonBet review concludes that this is a site that offers a simple and easy to use sports betting and esports betting option on both desktop and mobile, however where LeonBet does shine is in its casino offering which we feel is the crown jewel of the site.
Now for esports bettors that may be a little off putting, but in truth, it should not put you off as the site has plenty of the most major esports betting markets and tournaments available and all the other attractions will give you options to try things out when you expand your horizons on the site.
Sure, LeonBet may not offer the depth of other esports betting sites, but what it does offer is good odds and the most popular markets.
