It is very much functionality over aesthetics when it comes to Letou’s main site.
At first glance, the site is rather bland, with a plain white background making the options available clear to see.
Letou at least highlight their big offer of the day for new customers at the top of the screen, which is usually a price boost on a particular event or match.
As you scroll down the site, the sportsbook, live betting and casino sections of the site all run smoothly, with the layout for each all very simple.
The sportsbook in particular does contain some very nice features, including the ‘Last Minute Bets’ section, which reminds users of when a particular sporting event is about to start, so they can get their bets on before it gets underway.
Furthermore, there is also the option to switch between live and pre-match betting with one click of a button while you can also switch between fractions and decimals, depending on your betting preference.
Despite not being one of the most well known companies on the sportsbook scene, Letou do offer an extensive amount of services, with the two main areas focusing on sports and casino.
In terms of the online casino, there are a number of slots on offer, including jackpots, games and video poker. A positive feature of Letou’s casino services is that you can play each game on the casino in a demo version first. That means you can test out the game before placing any money.
Moving across to the sports markets, Letou cover a huge range of sports, from football and horse racing to more obscure sports such as surfing.
There is great depth to the markets, with 500 different events to bet on every day.
Of course, there are the standard betting markets you would expect to find such as points, goals and handicap markets. There are also markets for specific periods within an event, such as the time of the first goal in a football match.
One way that Letou do catch your eye is that the minimum bet accepted is very small, much smaller than if you were betting in a physical betting shop. It is only 0.10p or the currency equivalent, which you can use for any sports wager, including accumulators.
This is something that will definitely appeal to both regular and occasional punters.
As with most betting sites, Letou do offer a partial or full cash out on your active bet. If you cash it out partially, you can leave the rest as an active bet with the same odds by adjusting the slider to the amount you want to cash out.
Usually with most bookmakers and betting sites, the welcome bonuses and promotions that they have to offer are the main attractions for new customers.
In the past, one of the major criticisms of Letou had been their lack of a welcome bonus for new customers, with the company instead rewarding the customers they already have.
In the past few months however, that has now changed with Letou recognising the importance of putting out eye-catching promotions to attract new customers from their rivals.
They now offer a different welcome offer every day, which usually centres around a price boost on a particular event.
For instance, one of these offers included placing a first bet of exactly £5 on Chelsea to beat Watford at the normal website odds and if the selection won, Letou would enhance your account to their price boost price of 7/2. This would then be credited as a bonus token, which would be valid for five days.
This is very much a step in the right direction but compared to the likes of 10Bet who have a number of different bonuses for sport and casino, Letou still trail far behind in that aspect.
Letou accepts a number of different ways to deposit funds including Visa and MasterCard along with e-wallets such as Skrill. The minimum deposits you can make are very low, with just £5 needed when depositing with a card.
Deposits are normally instant, with it appearing in your sports betting account as soon as you hit the pay button.
Withdrawals on the other hand, may take longer with 3-5 days for credit and debit cards while it can be up to 24 hours or less for e-wallets.
It is worth noting that there aren’t any processing fees for any transaction made from or into your Letou account.
With so much competition, there is plenty more work for Letou to do if they are to compete with the very best in the business.
There is no doubt that they offer strong odds and a comprehensive sportsbook, but there isn’t anything to really make them stand out, especially with a lack of live streaming and visuals for in-play betting.
Letou have made significant improvements recently, including the introduction of welcome offers for new customers.
However, in an ever-changing industry, they still fall far behind many of the trendsetters within the sports betting industry.
