Unibet Sports is a colossal betting brand. It is one of the biggest operators in the Kindred Group, a parent company that includes 32Red and was once home to the now-defunct Stan James.
In previous reviews, including my bet365 review, I talked about the sites that I used on a regular basis, noting that I have joined dozens but only use half a dozen regularly. Unibet is one of those half-dozen. In the following review, I’ll discuss some of the things I like and dislike about the Unibet sportsbook.
Unibet has always been generous with its welcome bonuses and it has another such offer available right now.
All new players can collect up to £40 as a money-back bonus, along with £10 in casino credits. You must deposit at least £10 to qualify and the £40 is paid as a bonus that comes with a 3x wagering requirement.
The bonus must also be placed on odds of 2/5 (1.40) or higher. As for the casino bonus, it can be used across Unibet Casino and has a wagering requirement of 50x.
As an example of how this works, if you sign up and place a £40 bet for England to win, you’ll get £40 back in bonus credits when they are inevitably beaten on penalties. If the bet wins, you’ll keep the winnings and skip the bonus. In both cases, you will still be given the casino bonus.
Of course, you only get money back on what you actually bet and lose. So, if you wager £10 on a losing bet, you’ll get £10. Check the terms and conditions for more information.
Unibet offers occasional bet refunds, price boosts, and other interesting offers. You’ll need to opt-in to most of these, so check the promotions section to see what’s available.
Software and Betting Options
I have always had a soft spot for the Unibet betting software. It’s clean, bold, and easy to follow. It’s the same software used on 32Red and Mr. Green, so it may be familiar. If not, don’t worry, as it’s intuitive and it’s easy to find what you’re looking for.
It’s not just the layout, either. The betting options are also decent, and everything is nicely streamlined and not cluttered. You have sliders for Over/Under markets, live betting options, and streams appearing above and to the side (where available).
It has a Bet Builder for in-game multipliers and there is also a Popular Bet Builders section so you can see what other punters are picking.
There are usually some good special bets on offer as well. For instance, with football matches, you can bet on a range of Asian handicap lines, as well as specific match events and player wagers.
There aren’t really any bets here that you won’t find anywhere else, but it covers all bases, and with the Bet Builder, you can essentially make your own bets anyway.
Check the Odds Boost section before you place a bet. It contains random boosts of outright bets, multiple bets, and single bets. If your preferred wager is there, you could get a free boost.
Unibet has a very good virtual sports section if you’re into that sort of thing. It simulates entire tournaments and lets you place a variety of single, multiple, and outright bets. I have wasted countless hours on these things in the past.
Customer support is notoriously problematic in the online gambling sector. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because they’re always outsourcing to companies that deal with dozens of sites, so they never quite know who you are or where you’re from. Maybe it’s because the support staff are so sick of dealing with angry punters that they’ve given up on life.
To be honest, if I had to spend a day listening to people getting angry because Man Utd lost again and it’s somehow my fault, I’d give up as well.
In any case, most of them are terrible. In the past, however, I noted how 32Red was the exception and Unibet is deserving of similar praise.
Deposits and Withdrawals
I have never had any issues withdrawing from Unibet Sports. I actually made a couple of withdrawals a few weeks before writing this review and they were processed almost instantly through PayPal. It says “up to 12 hours” for PayPal withdrawals, but I have rarely needed to wait more than a couple of hours.
I don’t have any experience with debit card withdrawals, but it states that they will be processed in just a day or two, so they should also be very quick.
In terms of deposit options, you can use Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, Trustly, Apple Pay, Neteller, Skrill, and bank transfers.
The minimum and maximum limits vary by method. With PayPal, the minimum is £10 while the maximum is £10,000.
Verdict: Unibet Review
I have a soft spot for Unibet. It’s not my favourite, but I keep returning and I don’t recall ever having a bad experience here. Truth be told, I think I’m cursed on Unibet. Despite betting less here than on other sites, I’ve probably lost more money and rarely make a withdrawal.
Still, that’s my fault for being useless.
I would definitely recommend checking this site out, especially if you have previous experience with 32Red and Mr. Green and enjoy how those sites are laid out.
Yes, and it’s the option I would recommend the most. It’s quick, easy, and I have personally used it here for over 7 years.
Yes, if you have a Unibet Sports account, you can also access the casino, bingo room, and poker room. One account provides access to the entire Unibet platform.
Unibet is part of the Kindred Group, one of the biggest betting brands in the world. Kindred was actually once known as Unibet Group Plc and was founded off the back of this platform.
Live chat is the best way to get in touch and is the method I have personally used the most on this site.
