The complete review of Unibet will encompass what you can expect from the site before you even arrive. The hope here is to give you a good idea of what the sportsbook can offer you and how you can benefit from Unibet for your sports betting needs!

The Sportsbook

Simply put, the sportsbook at Unibet is absolutely massive.

They have a tremendous selection and variety of sports to choose from. In other words, if you are looking to bet on a sport aside from the major players in the sports betting industry, Unibet is going to have it.

Of course, Unibet also offers live betting, so you can get in on the action as it unfolds.

Like many other sportsbooks, Unibet offers odds in the three major formats, including decimal, American, and fractional, so feel free to use whatever format works best for you!

Their sportsbook also includes a small bonus where you can claim a free bet with what they refer to as the “multiples promotion.” The free bet promotion is for soccer only and is explained in a clear format when clicked on inside of the sportsbook.

The sportsbook also offers a variety of sections on its main interface to help you stay in touch with the action. There is an “In-Play” section where you can view the scores and current odds of live action. There is also an “Upcoming” section that previews the action that is upcoming in multiple sports. There is a “Top Football Leagues” section where you can view the upcoming action from the top football leagues in Europe. Keep in mind that this is a European site, so soccer is referred to as football, and American football would include the NFL and college football. Lastly, there is a section dedicated to NFL football, including upcoming games and futures.

Overall, the sportsbook at Unibet is an impressive one and one that would be recommended for non-US players.

Sports You Can Bet On

As mentioned, there is a massive variety of sports available for betting on Unibet. Of course, the world’s most popular sports are available. This would include soccer, American football (NFL, college), basketball (NBA, college, European), UFC/MMA, ice hockey (NHL and European leagues), and horse racing.

Want to bet on other sports? No problem. On Unibet, you can bet on tennis, golf, cricket, boxing, motorsports, rugby, volleyball, and Australian Rules football.

Still not satisfied? How about chess, floorball, trotting, greyhounds, cycling, snooker, sumo wrestling, and handball? These types of sports are certainly not offered at a lot of sportsbooks. However, being a European sportsbook, we can understand that these types of betting opportunities would be offered.

Again, there are 35 different avenues for betting here, even with non-sports such as politics and TV and novelty. Politics are a fairly common theme in sportsbooks, and the TV and novelty area can be a fun place to be when there is an award show or something of that nature that draws a massive audience.

There are certainly some out-of-the-box options at Unibet as well as the main sports that millions of bettors worldwide wager on every day of the week.

Esports Coverage

Yes, esports are available at Unibet, too.

There are various esports leagues available for betting, including CS:GO, Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends, Overwatch, and StarCraft II. Of course, there are various esports subleagues available at Unibet, but we won’t go into great detail there.

Obviously, the esports coverage here is once again extensive like the rest of the sportsbook as a whole. There is both a live and upcoming section of the esports area, and you can of course bet on all of the championships taking place around the world.

User Interface

We are really fond of the interface when it comes to Unibet.

In terms of graphics, it is a bit on the light side, as the homepage incorporates graphics that are used from the “games” section of the site, but we also think the graphics in the sportsbook aren’t all too great.

That said, the interface is very good. It is very easy to toggle through odds, and it is very easy to switch the odds into the three aforementioned formats.

In terms of the ability to view and make wagers, this site is pretty top-notch. When you click on the sport which you wish to bet on, all of the subleagues immediately pop up to the right of the list of sports. At that point, you simply click on the subleague you wish to bet on, and from there, the odds on individual games and matches are easily readable and legible in a very quick manner.

Of course, the live betting section of these sports is very easy to see right away and wager on.

In many instances, what is commonly referred to as “futures” but called “Outrights” on Unibet is also a tab at the top of the page when a sport is clicked on. Therefore, you get the list of upcoming games, live action, futures or outrights, and also an “All” section that once again shows all the subleagues that you can bet on.

Overall, the interface at Unibet is very user-friendly and very clean, more so than a lot of other betting sites out there.

The Casino

The casino section at Unibet is a good one, with plenty of action available for betting.

What we like about the casino area here is the fact that there is a “getting started” section where you can go and learn about the basics of each casino game as well as watch a user-friendly video.

The casino section also encompasses a tournaments tab where you can go and check out all of the upcoming and past casino tournaments offered by Unibet.

You can certainly expect to the see the same casino games that you will find at all betting sites that offer casinos. However, like their sportsbook, Unibet has a wide variety of casino games available for betting. The interface is solid here and lit up with graphics, which is what we would usually expect from a casino section.

Overall, the casino section here is once again impressive and worth taking a peek at if that is something that is part of your overall betting plan.

Deposit Methods

You can quickly make a deposit into your already-created Unibet account in a few different forms, including a lot of today’s most popular methods. It does not, however, accept cryptocurrencies as a method of deposit like some of the biggest sportsbooks in the world do.

Still, the deposit methods at Unibet are plentiful and would satisfy the vast majority of potential users minus those who are solely using cryptos as their method of deposit.

At this point in time, the following methods are accepted for deposit by Unibet.

Bonuses and Promotions

Bonuses and promotions can be a big difference-maker for sportsbooks, considering bettors have quite the selection to choose from when deciding which sportsbook to entrust with their business.

It’s worth mentioning that the first-time deposit bonus with Unibet isn’t great, and it’s certainly not comparable to other sportsbooks that we have seen. That said, there are still promotions within the sportsbook that Unibet provides their users with that are attractive.

Bonus 1: A Risk-Free Bet Bonus on the Sportsbook

In other words, if you lose your first bet using Unibet’s sportsbook, they will refund 100% of your bet up to $30 USD.

This isn’t a bad promotion. However, the euro or dollar limit (among other currencies) is rather low. Still, if you are a new bettor and are not wagering large sums of money, then the risk-free first bet is an attractive promotion to take advantage of.

Promotion 1: Win a Dream Football Trip and Share of E10K (expired)

This promotion here is for soccer bettors, more specifically the Nations League.

The objective is to place winning bets on the highest odds in the Nations League between September 3rd and 11th. The 50 players with the highest winning odds will share the 10K Euro price pool. The winner will win the dream trip to a soccer match of their choice along with $1.5K Euro cash.

While this promotion is expired, it’s nice to see that Unibet offers limited-time promotions that account holders can take advantage of.

Promotion 2: Multiple Free Bet (Limited Time)

This one we mentioned above, and it also has to do with strictly soccer.

If you place at least 10 Euros on a four-pick multiple, or parlay, you get 5 Euros credited to your account within 72 hours.

If you are a multiple, or parlay, bettor, this is a really nice offer, as you are getting paid to essentially do what you normally do. Hey, if you win your parlay, this is a win-win situation!

As mentioned, the sportsbook bonuses and promotions at Unibet aren’t exactly up to snuff when it comes to other sportsbooks we’ve seen from around the world. Still, if you are a soccer bettor, these promotions can still certainly work to your benefit.

Customer Service

When it comes to customer service at Unibet, the options on the site are solid.

The “About Us” section is adequate with security information, privacy information, terms and conditions, and information related to cookies. What is especially important to protect the integrity of the site and its users is the “know when to stop” section that can aid its account holders with a possible gambling problem or addiction. There is also a “Test your gambling profile” section where you can perhaps get a better idea of what type of bettor you are and what your limits might be.

The Unibet Community is a nice peer-to-peer section where users can share their thoughts and discuss topics of interest when it comes to utilizing the Unibet site. This is a great tool for potential or current users to engage and identify topics and themes that are of interest to them. This can only be a positive for the site.

There is also a live chat option at Unibet that can be found when clicking on the “contact us” button at the bottom of some of the pages. You can also contact Unibet via email. However, a phone number is not readily available on the site.
