Nowadays, when we tend to see a new online casino appear every day but very few live long enough to celebrate the third year in business, it is almost a miracle to hear about a brand celebrating its 10th birthday. We are talking about LeoVegas, of course! One of the most renowned names in the online casino industry has just celebrated this important milestone, and all we can do is say our congratulations and wish the brand all the best in the years ahead of us!
To mark this big occasion, the CEO and co-founder of LeoVegas Group, Gustaf Hagman, shared a few quite emotional memories on his LinkedIn profile. According to Hagman, the idea of starting an online casino popped up while he and his colleague and fellow co-founder Robin Ramm Ericson were flipping some burgers at a BBQ party. They admitted it was not always an easy path. Just like all entrepreneurs, they experienced “painkillers, long hours, and soft drinks alternated with champagne”. To make things slightly more interesting, Hagman also published a set of photos from the night the casino was launched.
The simmering ideas of that fateful summer evening eventually resulted in an international group with more than 850 employees. In the past 10 years, the company has witnessed more than 24 million signups from all over the world. The LeoVegas Group now operates 10 brands. If you ask Hagman, the main secret to LeoVegas’ success was the early recognition of mobile casino gaming and its future importance within the industry. According to his own words, being mobile-first was of the uttermost importance since the very first day. In the end, the CEO thanked all employees who helped build the brand throughout the years.
LeoVegas didn’t miss out on the opportunity to throw a party for its loyal customers. To mark this special event, the online casino organized multiple promotions and special events. LeoVegas promised €100k worth of prizes and surprise offers, including special tournaments and competitions. The promotion runs all month long, so don’t hesitate to check it out for yourself, and maybe even sign up if you haven’t done so already.
LeoVegas Gaming Group operates several brands including LeoVegas, Royal Panda, and Gogo Casino. Thanks to its extensive portfolio, customers can enjoy a plethora of slot machines, live table games, as well as a sportsbook that was first introduced in 2016. LeoVegas AB is also listed on Stockholm Stock Exchange. LeoVegas brands are now operating under several premium licenses, including those provided by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), Spelinspektionen, and the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC).
