Our Unibet review is on hand to give you a detailed outlook on what this up and coming bookmakers is offering in terms of its sports betting markets. Naturally, there are pros and cons with Unibet’s service, as there are with the service offered by all firms, but a comprehensive look is needed to sort out the best and worst bits.

Unibet Exclusive Welcome Offer: 3/5
New customers only / T&Cs apply
Unibet offers 100% deposit bonus up to £50 to new customers via our website. This welcome bonus can be claimed by clicking on the button above, and not directly on the Unibet website.
If you make a deposit of up to £50, the bookmaker will give you the same amount in bonus money. So, if you place £50, you’ll get this matched up and enjoy £100 to play with. You can only get £50 bonus if you deposit £50. The great thing about this offer is that it doesn’t matter if you win or lose since every bet will count towards your bonus.
Terms and conditions of the offer include:
- Only bets made at 2/5 (1.4) can count
- Deposit at least £5 to qualify
- Bonus expires after 30 days of accepting the promotion
- Bet your bonus 6 times (sportsbook) and 25 (casino, casino live slots and games).
It’s important to remember that if you don’t complete the wagering requirements within 30 days, the bonus money and winnings you’ve made by wagering it will be lost.
Unibet general welcome bonus: £30 moneyback
The £30 money back offer is a an alternative welcome bonus offered by the bookie. This looks decent and it is essentially a 100% money back in bonus funds offer too. For example, if you placed a £10 bet upon joining Unibet and it loses you will receive a £10 refund. However, this means that Unibet is essentially giving the punter nothing tangible and if you want the full £30 refund, you will need to enter promo code and stake £30 on your first bet.
Furthermore, to withdraw the refunded amount of £30 (which is simply the money you deposited in the first place), you will need to stake a further £90 in settled bets. To withdraw refunded stakes, you must wager it 3 times, i.e. if you have received the full £30 money bonus you must wager £90 before being able to withdraw.
Betting Markets: 4/5
A large number of markets are available and so on a basic level, the Unibet review throws up nothing too negative. Football, cricket, horse racing, tennis etc are all very well covered by dozens of fluid markets and so the day-to-day punter will not struggle to find a bet.
Upon choosing the Unibet Sports section you’ll be taken to the main area for global betting. On the left of the display, different sports markets are available and are all easy to find.
Our Unibet review did find unfortunately that their prices could be better. In a typical first goalscorer football market, Unibet appears to be rarely best priced on the main contenders, though their match odds overall look perfectly fair. A lack of a great bonus on signup does not help the pricing matter.
The Unibet review couldn’t really pick a fault with the odds and markets on most of their sports on the whole. In lieu of a strong bonus structure though, Unibet would have done well to have increased their odds by just a fraction, it does get noticed.
Unibet Mobile App: 4/5
This Ladbrokes review also extended to the mobile betting app, which again ticked all the right boxes. First and foremost, it is available to both Android and iOS customers, as well as through a browser-based mobile platform. A simple-to-use interface makes for smooth navigation across all the sports markets, and users will find they will be quickly able to place bets.
There are also several intuitive features, including a mobile alerts service which updates customers on bets and markets. Live streaming, which our Ladbrokes review elaborates upon below, is also available through the app.
Live betting & streaming: 4/5
Streaming makes using Unibet all the more fun and this is where they stand out against some of their immediate rivals. Unibet’s live streaming section covers football, cricket, and tennis among others and is a pretty clear and comprehensive service.
We’ve said it before and this Unibet review is no different; live streaming is what separates the men from the boys in the online betting market and it is one area Unibet has worked hard to get right.
Away from streamed events, Unibet’s live in-play offering is reasonably substantial and covers just about every sport. Football is the most comprehensively covered in-play sport with dozens of markets available during games plus a cash-out option, though not all markets have cash-out.
The cash out function at present on Unibet is only found on live single bets, though the firm is making strides towards improving it.
Payment options: 4/5
Deposits and withdrawals are handled via credit or debit card (Visa and Mastercard), bank transfer, Skrill or Neteller. Deposit minimums are £5 for all payment methods and there are no fees.
Withdrawals have a minimum at Unibet of £10-£15 but are relatively quick; 24-48 hours usually.
|Payment method||Minimum deposit||Transaction fee||Processing time|
The deposit methods are fairly comprehensive, fast and with fair minimums at £5. The only negative on the banking options the £10-£15 minimums for withdrawal, something that may alienate the smaller gambler used to placing minimal bets in high street shops.
Unibet Customer Service: 4/5
|Contact method||Live chat||Telephone|
|Access details||Live Chat is available via the ‘Contact Us’ section||0800 329 393||Infoemail@example.com|
|Availability times||24 hours||0700 – 2300||24 hours|
The service offered by representatives is generally friendly and informative. Some useful FAQ’s to avoid contact though are:
Can I Withdraw To Someone Else’s Bank Account
No, but purely for security reasons. All withdrawals must be to your own account.
Is there a promo code currently available?
The Unibet opening offer, which doesn’t need a physical code entered, entitles new signups to up to £50 matched deposit.
Who can claim the promo code offer?
All new signups on the web can claim this offer.
Is there a mobile bonus?
No, but all other bonuses are offered on the mobile site and apps.
Can I claim this bonus in addition to other offers?
Not as such. The money back offer is exclusive, though other bonuses on casino and games can be claimed too.
I can’t seem to obtain the bonus, what should I do?
Check the eligibility requirements on the Unibet website, otherwise contact Unitbet customer services.
Overall Rating: 4/5
The Unibet review definitely throws up some areas of improvement, though their strong customer service skills and live streaming offering are positives.
|What we like||What we don’t like|
|👍Good live streaming schedule||👎£15 minimum on withdrawals|
|👍Good mobile app||👎Large stake required to reap benefits of bonus|
|👍Good range of in-play markets||👎Limited cash out|
Unibet’s online presence can only get better from here, and with a few tweaks, it will be up where it needs to be. Low minimum withdrawals, a better intro bonus and a full cash-out system would be major improvements.
