Your VIP Status will progress automatically from one VIP Level to the other as you place real money bets. You can view your VIP Status (Level) via the orange “VIP LEVEL” bar at the top-right hand side of your screen.

LeoVegas’ VIP programme is made up of several perks, including the likes of invitations to prize draws, birthday rewards, special offers and bonuses, and a dedicated account manager.

VIP Levels are grouped into 7 different sections. Each month, one lucky winner from each section will receive amazing prizes, such as VIP Event Experiences and even the latest Apple products! What’s more, you can choose your own reward from LeoVegas’ “Roaring Prize Shop” if you so desire, or opt for a cash alternative.

You will receive tickets to the betting site’s “Monthly Prize Draw” according to the amount of money you have played through, multiplied by your current VIP Level for a particular month.

  • 61-70 70+ (Same section)
  • 51-60
  • 41-50
  • 31-40
  • 21-30
  • 11-20
  • 1-10

Pre-Match Offer
4.5 / 5

  • Odds on over 25 sports
  • Minimum stake of 0.1 GBP
  • Maximum stake differs from sport to sport
  • Excellent in-play section

Pre Match Offer at LeoVegas

LeoVegas offers odds on over 25 sports, including the most popular ones like football, tennis, and cricket, among others. Unique sports markets, like bandy, snooker and sumo are also available, so it’s very likely that you’ll find what you’re looking for here, no matter your preferences.

LeoVegas offers its players a wide variety of superb sports betting features, including “Trending Combo”, “Season Bets”, and “Leo Boosts”. “Trending Combo” refers to a set of combinations which are currently trending on LeoVegas, while “Season Bets” refer to bets which run their course throughout an entire sports season. “Leo Boosts” is a section which is dedicated to a selected combination of selections with boosted odds.

Betting sites make a profit through what is known as the bookmaker’s margin, and you should look to place a bet on a betting variant with a margin nearer to the 100% mark. Betting variants with a margin exceeding the 110% mark are not worth punting on. To determine the bookmaker’s margin, you can calculate its Odds Overround.

To determine the Odds Overround for a bet, convert fractional odds into their decimal form, divide each individual outcome of a bet by 100, and add the resulting numbers together. You can determine the bookmaker’s margin for that betting variant via the result.

We worked out the quality of the odds on offer at LeoVegas by calculating the Odds Overround for a match to be contested in the UEFA Champions League. The Odds Overround were found to be, 105.48, which indicates that LeoVegas offers competitive odds and active sports markets.

Esports

LeoVegas offers odds on several popular local and esports international tournaments, with odds available on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2 and League of Legends.

The minimum stake for an Esports market is also 0.1 GBP, while the maximum stake again depends on the odds that you are backing, the esports market that you have chosen, and the number of selections that you have made.

Other Specials

At the time of writing, LeoVegas is offering odds on Politics and TV & Novelty markets.

The minimum and maximum stakes for Specials markets are the same as they are for both spports and esports.

Cash Out and Bet Builder

At the time of writing, LeoVegas is offering its customers both Cash Out and Bet Builder.

Cash Out is an excellent betting feature which allows you to retrieve a placed bet if you feel that things aren’t going your way during an in-play match. The amount of money retrieved depends on the odds in favour and the exact instance of cashing out your placed bet. You could end up winning more than your initially placed stake or less.

Bet Builder, on the other hand, allows you to combine several different selections and outcomes of your choice into one bet. As soon as you create a bet, LeoVegas will give you the odds. In a nutshell, Bet Builder allows a punter to create a bet with an innumerable number of different possibilities.

ThePuntersPage Final Say

LeoVegas comes with a number of excellent features and offers, and is a bookmaker we would highly recommend to our readers.

First, let’s explore the betting site’s weakness, of which, to be fair, there aren’t many. LeoVegas does not come with a feature to live stream sports, except for Greyhound Racing. There is no dedicated statistics section either. Additionally, there are only 2 sport-related promotional offers, at the time of writing.

When it comes to the betting site’s pros, there is a lot to enjoy. There is an excellent VIP Programme, a number of sports, esports, and special markets to choose from, and a great Sportsbook app. Customers are also offered round-the-clock customer support and several Responsible Gambling tools.
