Full Live Casino Review
 
 

Leo Vegas has been collecting iGaming industry awards since 2013. I’m absolutely sure that it won’t be long before the Leo Vegas Live Casino is recognised as one of the best online.

They are one of a few online casinos that are continuously innovating and expanding their games portfolio.

Their original USP was as a fully “Mobile Casino”, but IMO they now have one of the most compelling live casino solutions of any casino online.

Most casinos have maybe one of two Live Casino suppliers.

The Live Casino at Leo Vegas has seven. Yep, seven! and what’s more, they have their own dedicated tables and dealers in their own studio area called the Chambre Separee.

NoUnfortunately players from United States are NOT accepted.

Leo Vegas Live Casinos

They have 7 Live Casinos, all powered by different software providers. But depending on your location you are only likely to be able to access a few of them.

  • Evolution Gaming – with tables streamed from Evolutions’ Riga and Malta Studios. They have taken the generic tables from Evolution and also have their own dedicated set of tables in an area named “Chambre Separee” where they have two Blackjack tables (Including their own Party Blackjack table), and one Roulette Table. They have an impressive set of native language roulette tables and also a live stream from the Dragonara Casino in Malta and the Grand Casino in Bucharest. This is in addition to Blackjack, Baccarat, Casino Hold’em, 3 Card Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Dream Catcher, Texas Holdem Bonus Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em & Dragon Tiger.
  • Extreme Live Gaming – This is a UK based Live Casino supplier.  They have some interesting playing options on the games that offer a really good alternative to the tables at Evolution. Unfortunately, Blackjack no longer has side bets but Admiral Roulette is streamed live from the land-based casino in Gibraltar.
  • NetEnt – The Swedish games operator fits well with Leos heritage. Roulette and Blackjack can be played here for relatively high stakes.
  • Portomaso Live Casino – There is a selection of Live Roulette tables streamed from the Portomaso and Oracle Casinos in Malta. The quality of the streaming has been improved as it was a bit laggy in the past. This is a good alternative to the Dragonara Dual Roulette from Evolution.
  • Ezugi Live Casino – With two studios, one in Europe and the other in Asia, you can play Blackjack, Roulette, Casino Hold’em and Baccarat. English and Spanish speaking dealers make the sessions fun.  Ezugi is expanding rapidly and is one to watch.
  • Authentic Gaming – A niche provider streaming land-based games from premier land-based casinos around the world. Roulette is the main focus and can be played on Desktop, Mobile and Tablet. In my opinion probably the best live streaming game you’ll find.
  • LuckyStreak Live – A relative newcomer to the live casino world. Their Live Blackjack is one of the best around. The Roulette and Baccarat aren’t bad either.

Most of the games from all of the suppliers can be played on Mobile which fits well with the King of Mobile title that Leo Vegas has adopted.

Chambre Separee – Dedicated Tables

The jewel in their crown is their dedicated live casino studio and tables. Called the Chambre Separee it’s provided by Evolution Gaming.

The area has two Blackjack tables, one of which is the celebrity table that has two dealers.

They provide a running commentary on the days’ events in a lighthearted way, so if you fancy some additional entertainment you should play here.

There is also a dedicated European Roulette table, which sits towards the back of the studio.

The Evolution Casino

This has all the games you would expect.

Blackjack has multiple tables across a wide range of bet limits and what’s really great there are two dedicated Leo Vegas tables and one is a Party Blackjack Table, but this is only open at peak times. You’ll also find a full range of side bets on all the tables. VIP players are well catered for with tables that have higher entry stakes. It’s a standard 7 seat game played to Vegas rules.

Baccarat has four types of tables. There is the original Baccarat tables and the new High Definition Immersive style tables from the new Baccarat Studio that includes Baccarat Squeeze & Baccarat Controlled Squeeze.

Roulette – Along with Unibet I don’t think I’ve seen so many different language roulette tables in one place.  English is standard on the Classic and Immersive Roulette tables. You’ll find tables in Dutch, German, Italian, Turkish, Greek, Russian & Swedish.

For the lovers of Double Zero you can play American Roulette and players that like an additional edge, Lightning Roulette is something to play with it’s 500x bet multipliers.

Alongside these, you’ll find the new dual play roulette table streamed from the Dragonara Casino in Malta and the Grand Casino in Bucharest and the latest Double Ball Roulette.

You’ll also find La Partage and French Roulette with automatic versions of both styles. There’s also a few dedicated Leo Vegas tables with English speaking dealers.

Casino Hold’em is the classic version that is played against the dealer. This is a great game if you like playing poker derived table games.

3 Card Poker is another game played against the dealer where an unlimited number of players can play the same hand. The stakes start at £1 a hand up to £10,000 if you have the stomach and bankroll for it. I love this game, but always seem to lose!

Caribbean Stud Poker is the latest of the table games and is using the new Evolution user interface which you’ll also see if you play on the new Baccarat tables. Stakes start from £1 up to £3000 a hand and with a 5 +1 bonus side bet this is as exciting as 3 card poker.

Ultimate Texas Hold’em is probably the most exciting of the poker derived games. Unlike Casino Hold’em, Ultimate Texas Hold’em has three betting rounds where you can increase your initial stake by up to 4 times the Ante Bet. The trips side bet adds more excitement to the game round.

Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker is even better that UTH in my opinion. It has a better RTP and the bonus side bet is something completely different. If you like building a bet as cards are dealt, this is the game for you.

Dream Catcher – This is a new game, based on the Wheel of Fortune. This money wheel has 6 numbers you can bet on across 54 segments on the wheel. The game is so simple. If the wheel stops on the number you’ve bet on then you win. There is the added excitement of a 2x and 7x multiplier that can get applied to your win when it’s active.

Dragon Tiger – A simple yet effective game, similar to Baccarat and played with 8 decks, but only one card is dealt to the Dragon and Tiger positions. The high card wins. Aces are low, King is the highest card. The Ties side bet pays 11-1 or 50:1 depending on which one you bet on!

Extreme Live Gaming Casino

The introduction of Extreme Live Gaming is a bit of a game changer for the Leo Vegas Live Casino. It’s widely known that the best games in town are from Evolution, but that’s not to say the other providers are worse, they just have a smaller market share and have to rely on USP’s to attract players.

I feel Extreme Live Gaming are one of those providers that are getting it right. While they do have a full range of blackjack side bets Leo Vegas has chosen to take just the Bet Behind.  Fortunately, they’ve taken them all at the Evolution tables. so if you like playing 21+3 or Perfect Pairs you should head there.

They differ from the competition because they have a range of USP’s that are sure to bring the players in.

Blackjack is the standard 7 seat game and is played to Vegas rules. Only the Bet Behind side bet is available.

Roulette is the European single zero version. There are 6 different versions to play. Classic (that says it all really), Automatic (A real wheel, no dealer), Golden Ball – which gives one player the opportunity to release the ball into the wheel every 30 minutes and three versions with different “side bets”. There’s also a version with La Partage.

The roulette side bets allow you to bet on a symbol on a slot type wheel. If the wheel stops on the symbol you bet on you win!.  The symbols are all taken from popular Novomatic slot games. You’ll find Ra Roulette, Lucky Lady Roulette and Dolphin’s Roulette.

Admiral Roulette is streamed live from the land based Admiral Casino in Gibraltar which streams between 18:00 – 04:00 CET. You place your bets alongside real players in this land based casino.

For the German speakers, there is now Deutsches Roulette, which has German speaking dealers. The table is open between 15:00 – 03:00 am.

Lastly, you can select Multi-Roulette mode where you can play three different combinations of tables on one screen. Not for the feint hearted.

Baccarat has two versions, Super 6, which is normal Baccarat with a Super 6 side bet and Classic Baccarat. The table for this is only open between 12:00 – 22:00 CET. Both games have a full range of side bets that include Big / Small, Pairs and ties.

I’d encourage you to try out the Extreme Live Casino. It’s different and I’ll guarantee you’ll enjoy it.

NetEnt Live Casino

The Netent Live casino is another new addition to the Leo Vegas live casino that will appeal to a certain cross section of live casino players.

The casino and tables are very modern in their appearance and Netent is trying really hard to offer something that is more than just a table and a dealer.

Their use of green screen technology allows them to present the tables with “themes”, so for example, if there is a football tournament on you’ll see a football themed table with a presenter that is primed to talk about football.

Only two games can be played at Netent.

Roulette – Comes in two formats, standard European and European with La Partage.

Blackjack – has two types of tables. 7 seat Blackjack, with VIP Blackjack and Unlimited Blackjack.

Of the two games, the Roulette competes nicely with other brands. Blackjack is let down by the house rules they have employed and also the use of Shufflemaster dealing shoes. I’m not a fan.

Portomaso Live Casino Games

There are live streamed Roulette tables from the Oracle and Portomaso Land Based Casino in Malta. Wirex has developed this capability with Portomaso and the tables have been in operation for a number of years.

While Blackjack is available (dealt in a studio from the Portomaso) it’s not been taken by Leo Vegas who have opted for just the Roulette tables. In my opinion, the Blackjack at Extreme and Evolution are better anyway.

The only downside is these games are not available to UK players.

Ezugi Live Casino Games

Ezugi are expanding rapidly in Europe and while UK players are not able to play there yet, pretty much everyone else can.  Their games are streamed from two studios, one based in Bulgaria and the other in Asia.

Blackjack comes with English and Spanish speaking dealers. It’s a Vegas-style game and there are side bets for 21+3 and Perfect Pairs.

Baccarat comes with a full set of side bets and some very comprehensive roadmaps.

Roulette is the standard European version and again there are English and Spanish speaking dealers.

Casino Hold’em is played with one deck and comes wth the Aces or better side bet.

This is a good choice if you like to vary your play and experience different types of studios. The Asian studios come online later in the day.

Authentic Gaming

Authentic Gaming are a relative newcomer to the live casino scene and they have chosen to go the “niche” route and concentrate solely on providing live streaming from land-based casinos.

What’s unique about their product is two-fold.

  • Firstly, they use premier land-based casinos located all over Europe to stream from.
  • Secondly, they really focus on the player experience and have produced some of the best playing interfaces I’ve seen. They work on both desktop and mobile and have a range of betting options and functions that I’ve not seen presented like this before.

Roulette is the main focus and there are three tables to choose from.

Original Roulette is standard European Roulette. Professional Roulette is the same with just a few more bells and whistles and Superieur which is aimed at high rollers.

Out of the three, the Superieur table has the most authentic game, with both normal and French layouts with La Partage. High rollers in the casino tend to play at this table, which is one of the reasons why there are 4 croupiers controlling the game.

LuckyStreak Live

Another relative newcomer to the world of live casino, Luckystreak has been gaining fans for most of 2016.

I admit that I am one of them as I’ve recently performed a full review of their software and games.

They are slightly different from their competitors. They offer three games:

Blackjack – This is an 8 deck game played to Vegas rules. They have all three side bets of 21+3, Bet behind and Perfect Pairs. You can double on any hand and also on splits.

Baccarat – Is an 8 deck game that can be played in either single of multi-player modes. It comes with a full set of Roadmaps and Side bets of Big / Small and Pairs.

Roulette – This is the standard European version. What I like about this are the hit % ages that are displayed on the betting area.

Customer Support

On every occasion I’ve needed to use the customer support I’ve found them to be responsive and helpful.

I always use the online chat facility as you tend to get a better response than using email.

Email and telephone are viable alternatives depending on how quickly you need help.  All of the support is available on a 24 x 7 basis.

Payment Options

To be honest there’s not a huge range of payment options available but the ones they do have cover the basics.

You can use your credit/debit cards or alternatively one of the online e-wallets like Neteller, Skrill or Paypal.

I’ve tended to use my debit card and found that withdrawals take a few days on average.

There is a rather annoying pending period of 24 hours where you’re able to reverse your withdrawal.

In game deposit can be made on Desktop and mobile, which saves having to end the game to go to the banking section.

Licensing

Leo Vegas is licensed by the Malta Gaming Association and the UK Gambling Commission, both of which are respected authorities in the gaming industry.

Loyalty & Promotions

When you sign up you are enrolled into the VIP Loyalty program.

The most frustrating thing is there is no explanation on the site as to what it is! So here goes a brief explanation.

The VIP level indicates how much you have played.

Depending on your VIP level, you’re able to take advantage of various personal offers and bonuses. The bonus department uses a player’s level status to know which promotions to send.

When you reach VIP 30 all withdrawals will be free of charge and if you have a higher VIP level, your withdrawals are processed faster and your emails are prioritised in customer support.

Live Casino Promotions are impressive at Leo Vegas. There’s normally one or two running each month and they have some great prizes.

I particularly like the on table promotions when playing in the Chambre Separee. I’ve missed out on an iPhone 7 by one seated position on the table. The prize card was dealt to the guy next to me.

Next time I’ll try and grab all 7 seats lol.

Bonuses

As you’d probably expect Leo Vegas has regular bonuses for Live Casino players.

Some are country specific and a lot are available for a limited time.

Their promotions page holds details of all the current offers.

Leo Vegas Live Casino review summary

The Leo Vegas Live Casino solution is a difficult one to beat. They are the only casino to have live casino solutions from 7 different suppliers.

They are the only casino to have live casino solutions from 7 different suppliers.

On its own, that would put it top of most people’s best live casinos.

Their dedicated environment adds that something extra. The dealers are great and remember you when you return and I like the on table promotions.

It sounds a bit of cliche, but you really don’t need to play anywhere else. Leo Vegas has it all.
