Unibet Review

Founded over 20 years ago, Unibet have quickly established themselves as one of the premier online sportsbooks, boasting millions of customers worldwide. With a strong base in Scandinavia and Central Europe, the bookmaker has continued to strengthen its reputation in the UK with various high-profile sponsorships including Leed United Football Club, Derby County FC, Southampton FC, Middlesbrough FC, as well as various Darts and Horse Racing competitions including the Champion Hurdle race at Cheltenham. This has ensured they have mass appeal with punters across various sports and have catered to their global base by building the Unibet site in over 15 languages.

As well as offering sports betting, players can also enjoy online and live casino games offering roulette, blackjack & keno as well as their bingo and poker offering. Customers can access & enjoy these games across desktop, mobile and tablet 24 hours a day.

Getting started with Unibet

Upon landing on the Unibet website, customers are immediately greeted with the new customer offer, which is currently stated as ‘Up to £40 Money Back As Bonus If 1st Bet Loses + £10 Casino Bonus’.

unibet-new-customer-offer
Unibet – New Customer Offer

We certainly fancied the new offer and looked to go through the registration process by clicking on the ‘Register Now’ button. This took us to another info page which outlined some of the benefits of Unibet as well as a full rundown of the promotional terms and conditions. At this point we hit the ‘Join Now’ button to continue our journey.

unibet-new-bonus-terms
Unibet – New Bonus Terms

After opting to join, customers need to undertake a quick 4-step registration process providing some personal details and setting up their account with a password. This is a straightforward process and takes no more than a couple of minutes.

unibet-registration-page
Unibet – Registration Page

Once you have completed filling in the details to get registered, you will immediately be given the chance to make your first deposit as part of this initial journey.

Unibet deposit options & terms

New players can make their first deposit through multiple payment options including:

Payment TypeMinimum DepositMaximum Deposit
Debit Cards£5£10,000
Paysafe£10£800
PayPal£10£10,000
Bank TransferNoneNone
Skrill£5£10,000
Neteller£5£10,000
Trustly£10£1,000
Apple Pay£5£10,000

Please be aware that in the United Kingdom, regulations do not allow customers to use a credit card to make deposits for gambling any more.

After selecting your chosen payment method, simply enter the amount you wish to deposit and confirm your payment details. Please be sure to check the statement box towards the bottom right confirming that you have read and understood all the Funds Protection information as you will not be able to proceed without doing this.

unibet-deposit-payment-method-details-page
Unibet – Deposit Payment Method & Details Page

Once you have submitted your details you should get a confirmation message confirming everything has gone through. Simply close the message box down and check the top right to see if the account balance has updated with your chosen amount.

unibet-deposit-confirmation
Unibet – Deposit Confirmation

The minimum deposit amount for the majority of popular payment methods including debit cards is £5 with a maximum of £10,000 depending on your payment method. Bank transfers offer the highest degree of flexibility with no minimum or maximum amounts outlined.

Unibet will not charge for these transactions although it should be noted that your payment provider may. Some card companies may regard betting transactions as “cash” and can attach a fixed and/or interest charge from the date of payment so you should check just to be sure. Banks and e-wallet providers may also charge a currency exchange commission if you’re depositing in a different currency, or a transfer commission. Again, please check the terms with your provider as this will not be reimbursed in any way by Unibet. Once your details are verified the processing of the deposit is pretty instant with the majority of payment methods.

In most cases, Unibet’s verification is fully automated but there may be times they require additional documentation to confirm any new customers are who they say they are and satisfy all eligibility criteria. Unibet must be able to verify your full name, date of birth and address before your first deposit can be made.

Some documents that may be requested during a ‘Know Your Customer’ Check are, but not limited to:


Valid photo ID / Passport / Driver’s licence

Proof of address – utility bill or copy of bank statement (usually less than 3 months old)

Proof of payment/account ownership which could require photos of your debit card (usually with some of the details blocked out) or screenshots of your online bank statements.

Bank statements, pay slips, or certified documents

Unibet will make it clear what is required at the end of the registration process. As you can see, we had an immediate message stating that they were happy with our application and no further validations were required.

unibet-verification-confirmation
Unibet – Verification Confirmation

Unibet withdrawal options & terms

For withdrawals, various options remain from when you deposited, but the timeframe for funds to hit your account can vary. The minimum withdrawal amount depends on the payment method you’re using and ranges from £5 to £15. The maximum amount for one withdrawal is £50,000.

Unibet have given timeframes for various withdrawal methods which are :


Card withdrawals – 1-3 working days with a minimal withdrawal of £15

E-wallets – Up to 12 hours for providers such as Skrill, Neteller & PayPal with minimal withdrawal of £10

Bank transfer – 3-5 working days with a minimal withdrawal of £10

Direct banking – 3-5 working days with a minimal withdrawal of £10 & max of £10,000

 

Please be aware that when looking to make a withdrawal, any bonuses credited to your account must have satisfied all wagering requirements and qualification criteria before they can be released as cash. There may be times you feel the balance you can withdraw and that which is showing on your account are different and in many cases will be down to this reason.

Unibet sportsbook bonus offer

All eligible players who have signed up to Unibet can take advantage of their new customer bonus offer when depositing for the first time. The headline offer is currently ‘Up to £40 Money Back As Bonus If 1st Bet Loses + £10 Casino Bonus’.

An example scenario of how this works is if you deposit £20 and bet this on a market with odds of over 2/5 (1.4) and it wins then you have effectively completed the bonus, as the selection has come in. However should it lose, then Unibet will give you your stake back in the form of a bonus up to a maximum value of £40. Therefore the maximum amount you can deposit to fully utilise this particular offer is £40 which turns your initial bet into a risk-free bet up to £40.

In order to claim this offer, you must go through the following steps :

  1. Deposit a minimum of £10 and make your first bet with a minimum stake of £1 or more on market odds of at least 2/5 (1.4) or over. The max you can receive back in the form of a bonus is £40 based on your first bet.
  2. Horse racing is exempt from this promotion.
  3. If your initial selection loses, then the subsequent bonus must be wagered 3x at odds of 2/5 (1.4) or more within 7 days of opting in. For example, if you bet £40 and lost, Unibet will credit you with a £40 bonus. After this, you must wager through £120 before the bonus is withdrawable as cash.
  4. Cashed out bets will not count towards the wagering requirements.
  5. If you get the new customer sports bonus credited to your account and wish to use it on Casino games, then you must bet your bonus 25x before it is eligible to be withdrawn as cash. An example is that if you claimed a £40 bonus, then you must wager £1,000 worth before it is eligible. Table Games and Video Poker only count 10% towards the bonus so if you play for £10 it will contribute £1.
  6. Upon satisfying the wagering requirements, the bonus and any winnings resulting from it shall be withdrawable. Customers will then also be able to opt-in to the £10 Casino bonus as part of the initial offering. Customers must wager 35x on this offer before the bonus cash is eligible for withdrawal, with all bets (win or lose) counting towards the wagering requirements.

Bonus terms & conditions

As well as the main qualifying criteria listed above, there are some additional terms to be aware of in order to be eligible to claim the new customer offer. We have summarised these below.

  • Wagering on Virtual Sports counts 25% towards the total wagering e.g. a £1 bet contributes 25p towards the total wagering.
  • Deposits via Paysafe Cards, Skrill or Neteller will not count towards the deposit requirements for this offer.
  • Bets placed on the following slot games will not contribute towards the casino wagering requirements:
    • 1429 Uncharted Seas
    • Flowers
    • Multiplayer Mayhem
    • Blood Suckers
    • Castle Builder 1
    • Castle Builder 2
    • Dead or Alive
    • Devil’s Delight
    • Jack Hammer
    • Jack Hammer 2
    • Jackpot 6,000
    • Keno
    • Secrets of Christmas
    • Secret of the Stones
    • The Wish Master
    • Tower Quest
    • Thunderstruck 1
    • Thunderstruck 2
    • Piggy Riches

Additional bonuses

Unibet have been generous in giving extra bonuses and we were surprised to see our ‘Bonus Offers’ tab highlighted with an additional offering immediately after registering our account.

unibet-additional-bonus
Unibet – Additional Bonus

This was another Casino offer giving us 30 free spins on Temple Tumble if we deposited £20 or more. Although this wasn’t a sports specific offer, it certainly enhanced our perceived value of being with Unibet and it set the tone that more will be coming in the near future.

We didn’t have to wait long for this to materialise as our eye was immediately drawn to the ‘Special Offers’ tab towards the top right of the screen. This is where various sporting offers are laid out for  existing customers including a weekly In-Play Free Bet Club where customers were given £10 to bet each week on a selection of sports. The offers on horse racing were also extensive with boosted odds on racing bets of your choice each day and extra place racing specials as well as a Refer a Friend Scheme.

You can stay up to date with any new offers by regularly checking Unibet’s bonus and promotions page.

Unibet sportsbook

When you first visit Unibet, it becomes apparent how well laid out the site is and how easy it is to navigate through the markets on offer. The left side bar has a short selection of popular markets at the top to make it easier to find with an extensive list of sports covered underneath.

The depth of sporting markets was excellent as we counted over 30 at the time of this review, ranging from national favourites such as Football and Cricket through to international sports such as American Football, Aussie Rules, Baseball and Basketball. Horse and Greyhound racing fans are in for a treat as not only was the daily coverage extensive, there were multiple offers on the sports home tab outlining various race specific offers.

unibet-horse-racing-offers
Unibet – Horse Racing Offers

The ‘In-Play’ tabs and ‘Upcoming’ events were also well laid out and going through the various time-sensitive markets was easy as all the sports were again broken out into their own tabs. This makes it a highly intuitive journey within the site and those who either know what they’re looking for or simply browsing should easily be able to find what they are looking for.

Betting & in-play markets

After exploring the site, we thought we would take a closer look at the depth of markets on a single upcoming football match and assess how easy it was to place a wager.

We chose one of the quick link options to navigate to the latest set of German Bundesliga fixtures and were easily able to identify our fixture of choice. In this instance we chose the upcoming game between Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig

unibet-german-football-page
Unibet – German Football Page

We could see from the overall fixture page that this particular game features over 265 markets and this was enough to whet the appetite and get us to explore further.

The game specific page is broken into various modules with lots of information and stats being offered on both teams as well as an extensive betting section. Customers could use the right hand side of the page to understand the form of both teams, their previous head to head encounters and player stats which will help identify trends and aid punters in placing more informed bets. Unibet have also collated some of these into bite-sized facts with market odds offered based on recent form. We felt this was a nice touch and really helps punters get into a mindset of thinking about their betting. A couple of examples can be seen below such as highlighting the draw market due to RB Leizig drawing five out of their last

unibet-insight-based-markets
Unibet – Insight Based Markets

We could see all the standard markets were available including outright win/lose/draw, goalscorer markets, goals, Asian lines, corners and many more. We decided to bet on two markets together to see if we could generate accumulated odds and review how easy this process was. For this example, we backed an RB Leipzig win and for the game to have a total of over 8.5 goals.

unibet-placing-a-bet
Unibet – Placing A Bet

The bet slip immediately came up towards the right hand side without impeding the market selections being visible. The slip also stayed as we scrolled up and down the pages with the option to collapse the ticket until we wanted to view it again. This was great as we could see the selections we were making and what the compiled odds were, allowing us to play around with the stakes and see the potential winnings of each selection and scenario.

After confirming our selection, the confirmation was immediate with all the details laid out for final review.

unibet-bet-confirmation
Unibet – Bet Confirmation

As this selection wasn’t eligible for cash-out, we placed an additional bet on under 3.5 goals. Unibet added another nice touch in the betslip where a little label tells you if the market will be eligible for cash-out.

unibet-bet-with-cash-out-options
Unibet – Bet With Cash-Out Options

Once the bet was placed, customers simply need to go towards the top right, just under the account information to see a tab entitled ‘My Open Bets’. The new selection was visible here with an orange cash-out option.

unibet-cash-out-option
Unibet – Cash-Out Option

We found the process of placing a bet simple and it was easy to find the markets we wanted. All of the sections were well laid out with big buttons making it easier to select the right market and not make mistakes. This process was especially enjoyable on mobile where the likelihood of making a mistake is enhanced. But we found that the mobile journey mirrored that of desktop and was easy to use.

Live streaming

Unibet offers extensive live streaming options for customers. In order to take advantage of all the great live sports, you simply need to have funds in your account or have placed a cash bet within the last 24 hours.

All the events which will have a live stream display a small TV icon next to the market and you can even see these for upcoming events.

unibet-live-streaming
Unibet – Live Streaming

Punters can see the live feed of markets and odds while watching the event. The size of the viewing screen is also expandable with a further option to choose real-time visualizations of the event instead, if this is your preference.

Unibet have created a calendar of upcoming events that will be available for live streaming.

Loyalty & VIP programs

Unibet does not currently offer an active loyalty program for sportsbook customers. However they do give out regular bonuses and free bets to loyal customers with plenty of specials available on the site.

Another great incentive we found was their refer a friend program, where customers could earn up to £250 in bonuses if they refer up to five friends.

unibet-refer-a-friend-scheme
Unibet – Refer A Friend Scheme

Safety & security

Unibet takes the security of all its members very seriously and uses state-of-the-art technology to keep customers safe.

The site is encrypted using 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, with the SSL certificate issued and verified by Trustwave. Further steps that have been taken to ensure customer security such as;

  • The security systems and applications being tested several times per year by third-party security experts.
  • Implementing an Intrusion Detection System that monitors all network traffic 24/7 for signs of attacks or intrusions.
  • Setup a dedicated fraud department with advanced systems in place to detect and prevent suspicious activity.
  • Ensuring each account may only be accessed via a unique username and password.
  • Players accounts have to go through a verification process before being approved.

Given these measures, we certainly feel comfortable using the Unibet platform where all personal and financial information is safe and kept confidential.

Customer Service

Unibet have provided both phone and email addresses for customers to use if they need to reach out regarding any issues. These are :

Unibet Verdict

On the whole, we are rating our Unibet experience as ‘Very Good’. The signup process was smooth without any issues in getting our funds deposited. The site is well laid out with a wide range of betting markets, which we were able to navigate through with ease and place our bets instantly.

The new customer offer was a good one when compared to the wider market, effectively giving new players a risk-free bet up to £40. We did find the wagering requirements a little excessive, especially as the primary goal seems to be getting sportsbook customers playing casino games at some point in their journey. When looking at the sportsbook bonus being used in casino, one would have to wager the amount 25 times with the follow up £10 casino bonus offer having to be wagered 35 times. This could have led to confusion, but hopefully the steps in this guide will help clear up any issues.

The ability to build bets and accumulators was also slick and we were able to get odds on multiple markets. There was the option to fully cash-out giving punters a degree of flexibility and control over their bets but not a partial cash-out prior to the event. A strong live streaming offering also helps enhance the onsite betting experience.

One area where it seems Unibet have really put in an effort is to be transparent and helpful as possible throughout the site. There are always visuals and links to terms and conditions or information articles to help customers find what they are looking for. When signing up, the offer remains visible at all times giving comfort that the journey is the correct one to claim the relevant bonus and a very extensive help section has been populated with plenty of detail.

In conclusion, we thoroughly enjoyed our onsite experience and found that Unibet satisfied all the criteria expected of a leading sportsbook. A seamless journey across devices and games allowed us to track our bets and stay updated with latest odds. There were plenty of specials and enhanced odds to complement the new customer offer. We will certainly be making use of their refer a friend scheme as the site is highly recommended and we would encourage players to have an account at Unibet.
