Leo Vegas Casino visitors who not only love playing slots, but like to place wagers in sports too will soon be able to seamlessly switch to a sportsbook by technology provider Kambi. The news surfaced after Leo Vegas and Kambi signed a deal to facilitate the expansion of the casino beyond its already vast slots portfolio. Expected to be launched by the end of March, the sportsbook will surely add more appeal to Leo Vegas, as long as they don't start neglecting their mobile slot roots.
Exciting news for all of us who don't shy away from a little sportsbook action every now and again! Don't get us wrong, the slots portfolio is awesome at Leo Vegas – there are games from NetEnt, Microgaming, IGT, Bally, Nextgen, Evolution gaming, Cryptologic, Play'n Go, Yggdrasil gaming, Quickspin and even live dealer tables too. Yet, if you've wanted to bet on tennis, football or boxing, then you've had to leave Leo Vegas and sign up at another casino that offered sports betting. Well, you can make Leo Vegas your only go-to casino really soon, because they will offer a sportsbook product that's as good as their slots!
The Deal That's Been Struck
For those who aren't aware, Kambi Sports Solutions is a B2B company that's separated off from it's parent company Unibet and have already managed to gain traction by tripling their revenues since they've started. Casinos such as 888, 32Red and Unibet are also using the sports betting software from Kambi, so it's clear that it isn't just some random software provider that Leo Vegas have decided to use.
Gustaf Hagman, the founder of Leo Vegas, said that Kambi wasn't selected because they can “match our high ambition and provide enabling technology and capability for us to innovate and drive the sports betting experience in the mobile era.” Actually, Kambi are arguably one of the sports betting industry leaders and their software allows for effortless switching between playing slots and sports betting.
That's just the thing you want: no double accounts, just the one banking account to deposit and withdraw from and no switching gears in your gambling pace. The sportsbook will be managed by Kambi itself and should be in place and ready to go by the end of the first quarter of this year. Put simpler, by the end of March, you can place your bets on a variety of sports at Leo Vegas Casino whenever you get tired of playing slots.
Jack Of All Trades?
This move marks Leo Vegas' expansion beyond mobile slots, but will they prove the saying ‘jack of all trades – master of none'? Sure, Leo Vegas have gained a massive following and their promotions are always excessive – both of which prove that this mobile casino has grown into a well-respected brand. Yet, expanding the services that you offer sometimes takes away from the handful of high-quality services that got you to stardom in the first place.
We won't be pointing fingers, but some of the huge gambling brands that offer anything and everything from slots, poker, live dealer tables, sports betting, virtual sports, bingo and other products, are showing clear signs of spreading themselves too thin. The thoughtfulness behind promotions isn't there, the welcome packages dwindle to the very minimum, new games aren't introduced as often and improvements aren't kept up with.
Yet, we sure hope that this new partnership with Kambi works out well for Leo Vegas Casino and that the players will be the ones really benefiting. So if you haven't taken up sports betting just yet, perhaps give it a shot next time you're at the casino and find out for yourself!
