What we recommend instead
Play Leon Verdict
If you’ve played at a Jumpman Slots casino before, you won’t find anything different on offer at Play Leon. But, despite this and the high bonus wagering requirements, anyone who’s new to the Jumpman Slots network is likely to be impressed with the range of slot games that are available. And, the fact that you can also enjoy online bingo is very refreshing. Some similar sites you could also try are; Lucy Casino and 123 Spins.
Design & Usability
While the black-and-gold colour scheme is easy on the eye, the lack of a detailed background or any graphics apart from the brand logo and game thumbnails makes Play Leon look rather dull and uninspiring.
We’re not entirely sure who Leon is, but the image of a lion would indicate that he’s an animal rather than a human.
The casino follows the typical Jumpman Slots format, with the games lobby featuring on the homepage along with sign-up and log-in buttons, and a vertical menu system that allows you to look at the Promotions, All Games, and Trophies pages.
It would be nice if there were an introduction to tell you more about why you should consider registering an account, as well as the different types of rewards and promotions that are available.
On a more positive note, it’s good to see that the accepted payment methods are featured in the website’s footer along with evidence of its SSL and RNG certificates.
Software & Gameplay
Play Leon is a member of the Jumpman Slots casino network, which is operated by a popular UK bingo and casino company called Jumpman Gaming. The software offers you over 350 games, a chat facility within its bingo rooms, and a user-friendly cashier system that accepts promo codes.
Safety & Security
Play Leon is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, and the site includes information relating to its RNG (Random Number Generator) and SSL certificate, as well as guidance on responsible gambling.
Payments & Withdrawals
While we’d like to see Entropay, Skrill, and Neteller made available, Play Leon does at least accept one e-wallet (Paypal), plus Pay by Mobile and credit and debit cards.
You can make deposits of £10 to £5,000, and withdraw £20 and above in a single transaction. Sadly, the withdrawal process is a little slow due to the 72-hour pending period which is applied to all requests following submission.
The “Contact Us” page only lists live chat and email as the available support options, and as far as we’re aware, live chat is offered between to 9.30 AM to 6 PM from Monday to Sunday only. It would be good to see the support hours extended, or at least a telephone service added to the contact methods.
Bonuses & Promotions
The Mega Reel is used in place of a traditional welcome bonus, and at Play Leon and its sister sites, this means that you receive one spin on it when you make your first deposit of £10 or more. However, it’s worth noting that the terms and conditions state that winning a prize is not guaranteed, although if you’re lucky, you could get your hands on between 5 and 500 free spins for Fluffy Favourites or Starburst or a £10 Amazon voucher.
Another word of caution is due because the wagering requirements for the free spins are particularly high (65x), so you may wish to reconsider accepting the welcome offer.
Play Leon offers network-exclusive promotions which don’t tend to change. They include a month’s double cashback for newcomers, a weekly Pizza Club game where the winners gain an e-delivery pizza voucher, the Turbo Reel reload game, Happy Hours, and 200 Club (N.B., collect 200 trophies while playing at the casino, and you get a £10 Amazon voucher).
Despite there being no information in the FAQ or the website about playing on mobile devices, we’re happy to clarify that although there isn’t a Play Leon mobile app, you can still play on-the-go- using your device’s web browser.
Variety & Originality
Play Leon lacks a good selection of table games, although if you take the time to look for them, you’ll find a few popular titles like Blackjack and European Roulette.
The majority of games are online slots by Eyecon, Aristocrat, Quickspin, Microgaming, and NetEnt, and they include the likes of Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n’ Mix, Chilli Heat, Bonanza, Jingle Spins, Fluffy Favourites, Diamond Strike, Stampede, Fluffy Mega Jackpot, 99 Time, Temple of Isis, and Mega Moolah.
There are some casual games and instants too such as Diamond Deal and Boss the Lotto, plus a choice of five bingo rooms which are a welcome sight for an online casino brand.
Loyalty & Rewards
You achieve Level 1 VIP status from the moment that you first add funds to your Play Leon account. After that, it’s a matter of earning Kudos points by continuing to make deposits so that you can achieve higher levels.
The rewards are birthday bonuses, free spins, and daily cashback, and it’s worth noting that the top-level VIP rank qualifies for an impressive 10% daily cashback.
