NOTE: This LeoVegas Casino Ontario review is only valid for players living in Ontario. If you are based elsewhere in Canada, check out our LeoVegas Casino Canada review instead.
The alcohol and gaming commission of Ontario has granted licenses to several online casinos and all online gambling operators that wish to operate in Ontario are obligated to have the license. LeoVegas Ontario was one of the first ones to get the license from the alcohol and gaming commission of Ontario.
But what can you expect from LeoVegas Ontario? Has something changed after the regulation came into place?

Casino Games at LeoVegas Ontario
The casino games at LeoVegas Ontario aren’t really different from what is being offered in other states. You still have slots, table games (live casino), and sports betting available. However, there are fewer games available in total. In Ontario, there are only 300+ slots available whereas outside Ontario there are over 1700+ to choose from. The same goes for sports betting and live dealer games. Less options are available.
So in total, there are fewer slots available at LeoVegas Ontario. But at least the big names such as Play’n Go, Microgaming, and Pragmatic Play are in the slots selection. And most likely the selection will be regularly updated. Take into consideration that the Canadian online casino market was regulated very recently. And the software providers need to also comply with the new rules before they can offer their gaming options to the Ontario market.
So what slots went away?
Unfortunately that the progressive jackpots aren’t offered anymore by LeoVegas casino. We were not able to find the Mega Moolah slot on LeoVegas Ontario.
Live casino games
Live casino games can be considered classic casino games (blackjack, baccarat & roulette) and are provided to LeoVegas Ontario by Evolution Gaming. The biggest live casino software provider in the world. But like with slots, there are fewer tables available. Of course, Ontario, while still being the biggest state in Canada, does not need as many options as the whole of Canada so having fewer live tables makes sense.
Sports fans in Ontario don’t have to stop betting or live betting since LeoVegas sports still continues to offer competitive odds. Unfortunately not as competitive as they used to be. Betting sites before, including LeoVegas sportsbook used to have slightly better odds before the regulation came into place.
The difference compared to outside Ontario isn’t drastic, but they’re still is a clear difference. After looking at the upcoming sports betting markets we saw that outside Ontario odds were 6.50 vs 6.40 so there isn’t a massive difference, but there still is. Few events have exactly the same odds, but in general, the favor tilts slightly away from Ontario.
LeoVegas Ontario payment methods
LeoVegas payment system in Ontario is limited to only Visa, MasterCard, iDebit, and Interac. While these are the most popular payment methods in Canadian online casino, there are some that preferred other methods. Well, they are out of luck. Since at the moment in Ontario these are the only options available at LeoVegas.
So what is missing then? What do Canadians outside Ontario have?
MuchBetter and PaysafeCard are the available options for residents outside Ontario.
LeoVegas Ontario: Final verdict
So is it better for Ontario players now that the market is licensed and regulated? Online gambling is still available but gambling is more monitored than before. And guess the most notable change was to lift the age limit to 19 from 18. And that the bonus info can be only available on the casino’s own website. Which just makes finding information harder for the players.
At the moment the game selection seems to be slightly more limited so there are fewer options available but most likely other casino games will be added over time.
