Many online casinos ignore mobile functionality when first starting out. This is rookie error given that in 2014, more people accessed the internet on smart-phones and tablets than PCs and laptops.
Thankfully, not every casino feels this way. Malta-licensed LeoVegas read the horoscope: their mobile platform has won industry plaudits, and has been a roaring success all-round. They offer plenty of jackpot games such as Mega Moolah, and £1500 worth of bonus cash to pick up across your first four deposits.
Let's get our paws dirty by exploring all that LeoVegas has to offer ...
LeoVegas get its claws into you early doors with a beastly £1500 welcome bonus split over your first four deposits.
Here is how it works:
If that wasn't enough, you receive 180 bonus spins on top NetEnt title Starburst. You receive 20 each day for the first nine days of your membership, with each set valid for up to 24 hours.
Now, let's go through the jungle safari of finding out those wagering requirements and game weightings.
Refreshingly, LeoVegas is perfectly upfront about bonus terms. There's a playthrough of 35x on the bonus, with all games except table games and video poker (both of which count ten percent) counting fully towards the requirements. These are favourable terms: your original deposit is separate, and in many casinos, table games only count five percent.
Some slots games with high RTPs contribute only seventy percent, but there are only seven in total, and a list of them can be found on the site.
All winnings from your bonus slots spins must also be wagered 35x before they can be cashed out.
Occasionally, LeoVegas will hand out lumps of free bonus cash to loyal cubs. When they do, the wagering requirements are upped to 48x.
The casino does not have a Comp Points system as such, but all players do have a VIP status, depending on how much dosh they splash out while playing. The higher your status, the more privileges you obtain, and you can view your current VIP level on your account page.

LeoVegas has a fantastic range of games available in all shapes and sizes:
All that accounts for a staggering total of 439 games, of which an amazing 284 are available on mobile. Pretty neat, huh?
With a rich orange theme and a Vegas backdrop, LeoVegas is a mighty-fine looking specimen. Think Las Vegas strip, not downtown. Games are well organised and the site functions faster than a cheetah with its backside on fire.
LeoVegas has an orgy of casino software, including the 'big two' (NetEnt and Microgaming) as well as upcoming providers such as Bally and Yggdrasil.
All games are played in a browser, as most new (and some old) casinos seem to be these days.
Mobile users can either use the browser version of the site on their devices (which may means BlackBerry and Windows Phone users may have some success) or download an app for either iOS or Android.
Available Software: Bally Technologies, CryptoLogic, Evolution Gaming, IGT / Wagerworks, Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, Play'n GO, WMS, Yggdrasil Gaming.
Now here's a slight bite on the butt - LeoVegas has a 'withdrawal limit'. This is currently £20,000 a month, which LeoVegas claim is "for your protection".
Larger withdrawals can be agreed with LeoVegas, but the casino also says that all withdrawals over £100,000 will be paid in monthly installments.
Don't get us wrong - these conditions are better than at most casinos - but if it wants to rival the cashiers of 32Red and Ladbrokes, it needs to waive those limits and introduce manual flushing.
VIPs under Level 30 can only make three free withdrawals a month - all others are subject to a tiny nibble of £3 per transaction. VIPs of Level 30 and above have unlimited free withdrawals.
All the usual cashier methods are available, from Visa and MasterCard to eWallet solutions Skrill and Neteller plus a few others.
Note: the table below contains averages for the given payment services and does not factor in limits on the casino's side. Remember to check the casino's website for specific time/cash limits.
|Payment Method||Name||Depositing||Withdrawing||Withdraw Time|
|Credit Card||£10 - £50000||£10 - £100000||1 - 7 days|

LeoVegas is making great strides to becoming king of the casino jungle. Nearly every aspect of the site seems full of gazelle-munching goodness, aside from the delays on big withdrawals. It's brilliant to find a casino that embraces the mobile world so resolutely - LeoVegas were the first owners of an iPhone 6 in the UK, which they promptly gave away to one of their lucky punters.
Whilst LeoVegas is an exciting proposition for UK, German and Scandinavian customers, it's less ideal for punters outside of these territories, since they aren't eligible for bonuses.
Our defining verdict? LeoVegas takes a lot of pride (no pun intended) over its product, and is well worth visiting!Sounds good, sign me up!
