Leonbets Review

leonbets_bcThey may be an unfamiliar name to some but Leonbets were established back in 2007 and have spent that time building up their trust and reputation. Licensed in Belize and part of the Leon Gaming Group, there is much to enjoy here for both dedicated and recreational punters.

It’s also good to see that both new and existing customers are taken care of. There’s a healthy welcome bonus when you sign up but an interesting loyalty programme promises some excellent high-tech prizes.

    Bonus Rating:★★★★★3.5/5
    The first deposit you make will be prized with a 100% signup bonus - up to $100 or equivalent in account currency.
    Key Terms : Sports – The affiliate would need to add the significant terms within the offer. These would be as follows - 18+ Eligible new customers only. Min deposit £10.

When you join up with Leonbets you can look forward to a welcome bonus of up to $100 on your first deposit. However, if you make that credit with Skrill, the deal can rise even higher – all the way up to $150.00.

Both schemes represent 100% of your initial credit and then you have to rollover using what the company refers to as ‘Leons’. Their ‘scoring bonus points’ page will describe this in full but essentially you gain a Leon for every $1 you win and every $1 you lose: Score 3750 Leons and you have hit the rollover trigger.

At a later date, Leons can also be exchanged for great prizes such as iPhones, Tablets, Cameras and Games Consoles.

Sports Markets/Odds

Leonbets’ quoted markets may seem a little limited when compared with others but there should be something for everyone here. There’s a European bias with football and tennis taking centre stage and whenever you log on, you are likely to find all the latest events listed in the centre of the home page.

Here’s the list of markets currently offered by Leon Bet.
Football, Tennis, Ice Hockey, Basketball, American Football, Badminton, Baseball, Cricket, Floorball, Futsal, Handball, Rugby, Snooker and Volleyball.

So while others may offer more, there are lots of events listed within each sport and monitoring of the odds provided suggests that Leon Bet will give you some great value compared with other bookmakers.

Banking Options

As we’ve seen, it’s a good idea to use Skrill if you can in order to maximise that welcome offer but there are lots of additional options for depositing to and withdrawing from your account. Bank transfers and debit cards are offered together with a huge list of e-wallets, some of which may be specific to Eastern Europe.

However, the presence of Neteller, PaySafeCard, MTC, Tele2, iPay and many, many more means that you will always have a method. In fact, there are over 30 options with instant deposits so this is a strong area for Leonbets.

Customer Service

Leonbet’s help button is very prominent at the top right of the page but unfortunately the list of FAQ’s that it produces is really very basic. In contrast, the contact icon is hidden away at the bottom right and this brings up an e-mail address and an online contact form.

At the time of writing – October 2015 – we were unable to find a live chat facility but this may change in the future.

Final Conclusion

Leonbets employ an unusual way of earning bonuses but if you are a regular player then it’s relatively easy to get hold of the opening deal and those additional prizes. Occasional bettors are unlikely to get enough ‘Leons’ to really take full advantage but if you like this bookmaker and are prepared to play regularly then the rewards are there.

There is some good value in the markets too so this innovative operator is definitely worthy a chance in a busy time for the industry.


  • Excellent welcome offer up to $100 ($150 if using Skrill).
  • Ongoing play rewarded with high-tech prizes.
  • Over 30 funding methods with instant deposits.


  • Relatively limited set of markets
  • Difficult to find customer service options
