LeoVegas Adds New Technology for 2018
The popular online casino LeoVegas is now adding to its experience with a handful of new innovations that include exclusive casino games. News from the online gaming provider also includes the introduction of Apple Pay for completing transactions and a new, secure way for casino members to log into the site.
Exclusive Gaming Content
In an effort to help its content stand out, LeoVegas is releasing games that are referred to as “LeoVegas Originals.” Though there is no set number for the first batch of games, the casino has worked closely with NetEnt and other gaming developers to bring the new creations to life. The first game being released as a LeoVegas original is called WitchCraft Academy. This new casino game is specifically designed and optimized for the LeoVegas mobile platform, giving players a cutting-edge exclusive game via smartphone or tablet. Additional games will released in the near future.
Advanced Security and Payments
A major hurdle facing online casinos is the security of all players. The threat of identity theft and fraud over the internet runs rampant, which is why LeoVegas is turning to new facial recognition software to help bolster its security measures. Facial recognition works through Apple Pay and will be available to players signing in with the new iPhone X. The instant sign-in process is a combination of the advanced iPhone hardware and the technology from LeoVegas.
Apple Pay will now also be an acceptable payment method for players at LeoVegas online casino. The site considers this addition as a no-brainer, because over half of the UK players at the online casino use iPhones. The UK happens to be the first market where Apple Pay can be launched for casino transactions, due to the fact that it is licensed and regulated on a local level. LeoVegas plans to expand the Apple Pay options to other markets when feasible.
Sports Betting Focus
The 2018 World Cup is just around the corner, and LeoVegas plans to get a head start on the action by improving its live sports betting platform. Currently, the online casino offers over 10,000 different sporting events on which players can wager various bets. In addition, events are streamed live through the site and offer players realtime betting opportunities. Besides having a strong presence in the UK, the LeoVegas sportsbook is looking to the Nordic markets to increase its popularity.
LeoVegas was started in 2012 and features an advanced layout to its site. The modern format is ideal for players accessing the online casino through a mobile device. Each new player is also eligible for a welcome bonus, in addition to other regular promotions offered through the site. More regular players can join the LeoVegas loyalty program and earn extra bonuses on top of the normal benefits.
The online casino operates throughout Europe including the United Kingdom. It is licensed through the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. In 2016, the casino went public and is now part of the Stockholm Stock Exchange. LeoVegas has over 300 employees and was founded by Gustaf Hagman and Robin Ramm.
