Unibet mobile review
Like most online sportsbooks, Unibet appreciates that modern punters like to do their sports betting on the go. They have developed a mobile app available for iOS, Android and Window devices as well as a responsive mobile version of their website that’s easy to navigate and simple to use. You can access everything you need via the mobile version of the site, so it’s up to you to decide if this is more convenient for you or if you prefer to download the app.
The apps are available to download free either from the Unibet site or, in the case of iOS and Window devices, from the iTunes store or Windows App store. Be aware that Unibet offers a different app for their casino site, so make sure you get the sports betting app. The top menu on the app is quite limited, but scrolling down the screen will take you to all the areas of the site you might need to access. The live betting option is at the top of the screen, followed by a list of the most popular events. You will need to scroll to the bottom to actually add your events to your betting slip.
What bonuses do Unibet offer?
Unibet offers a welcome bonus of up to £40, only available for new customers, in the form of money back on your first bet. When you open an account and place your first bet, you will be eligible to claim your money back in bet credits if you lose. This is capped at £40 and only applies to bets of £1 or more on events with odds of at least 2/5.
There is a wagering requirement attached to your welcome bonus, meaning you must wager 3X your bonus (at minimum odds of 2/5) before you are eligible to withdraw any funds. Bonuses are valid for 60 days and will then be withdrawn if you have not fulfilled wagering requirements.
As always, other terms and conditions apply and are subject to change. Always check current terms and conditions on the website for any bonus you claim to ensure you fulfil any extra requirements and make the most of your bonus. There are sometimes ongoing promotions for existing Unibet customers, so keep an eye on your account for details. You should also be aware that you may be shown a local version of the Unibet site, depending on the country you’re accessing it from, and different versions may have different bonuses and promotions available as well as different terms and conditions.
What sports are available to bet on?
There are a lot of different sports available via Unibet, and the different types of sports and events are quite impressive. Offerings of course include popular European sports such as football, cycling and tennis. There are also sports popular in the US, including American football, baseball and basketball, as well as other international sports, from Aussie-rules football to cricket. You can also bet on winter sports, virtual sports and Olympic sports.
Other events available include UFC, MMA and WWE events, and, as with most bookmakers, you can also bet on the outcomes of non-sporting events in areas such as politics and television series, so the site really does have something for everyone. The sportsbook lists almost 40 sports you can bet on, but this includes broad categories such as ‘athletics’ and ‘winter sports’, so the actual number is even higher.

What features does Unibet offer?
Unibet offer a number of features to cater to all types of gamblers. Both pre-match and in-play betting is available, and events are live streamed, with live scores and stats available during each match or event. For access to live streaming, look for the UTV logo next to any of the events in the listed live market section.
To access live streaming, you will need to have funds in your account or to have had funds in your account in the last 24 hours. There are a few minor restrictions. For example, you can only access live horse racing if you have a bet of £1 or more on the race. For in-play betting, you will need to click the ‘live betting’ tab. The live odds are displayed in the middle panel of the screen where you will also find game stats and scores.
There is a useful cash out feature, allowing customers to stop bets during live play. As we have already mentioned, there are various bonuses, including in-play promotions, with many versions of the site offering an in-play free bet club, which allows you to get a free in-play bet every week as long as you place at least five in-play bets of £10 or more during that week. There is also an option for action betting, which is an innovative and dynamic way to bet and allows for in-play bets to be settled within 60 seconds.
Betting Veteran pays a visit
Betting Veteran paid a visit to Unibet and enjoyed the experience immensely. He did find the layout of the website less clear and intuitive than some sportsbooks he has tried but quickly found his way around. He found it easy to register an account, find all the events he wanted to bet on and access the live betting section, which is where all the excitement seems to happen. Betting Veteran will certainly be visiting Unibet again.
It’s not hard to see why Unibet is a popular European sportsbook. It focuses on the excitement of in-play betting with an excellent live section that displays live stats and updates, in-play odds and other important information. Live streaming is easily accessible for most sports with very few restrictions.
The site offers good odds, including great in-play odds on many games and a very impressive array of sports and events. There are plenty of funding options, and they make it very easy to set up an account and get betting quickly. Unibet offer a cash-out feature, a useful customer help section and a handy mobile app as well as a responsive mobile site. The site itself is a little ‘busy’ and cluttered and less intuitive than some, but that seems to be a result of them trying to fit as much information as possible into relevant areas and is fine once you become used to the site and find your way around.
