Unibet have been at the forefront of online gambling since the day the market began to take off, and whether you’re a seasoned punter who enjoys placing large bets, or you consider yourself to be more of a casual gambler who puts the odd acca on at weekends; Unibet offer an unrivalled online gambling experience, putting them on par with the biggest names in the industry.
Unibet’s website is extremely user-friendly, and their simplistic green and white branding makes navigating around the website an uncluttered affair, allowing you to enjoy your betting rather than getting frustrated at a slow loading, laggy web pages.
Alongside their sports betting, Unibet also offer a number of other betting products including online poker, online casino games, and bingo; and as you’ll see in the following post, there are a multitude of reasons why you should consider joining regardless of whether you’re a newbie or an old hand.
Sign Up Bonus
In-Play Free Bet Club
Unibet’s ‘In-Play Free Bet Club’ is one of the most generous promotions around. As soon as you’ve joined, you can claim a free £10 bet each and every week simply for placing five or more £10 in-play bets on either the Football, Cricket, or Tennis.
All you need to do is opt in to the promotion through the ‘Promotions’ page, place the qualifying bets between Monday and Sunday, and the £10 free bet will be credited on Monday before 4PM.
Now, there are only a few terms and conditions regarding the free bet qualifying bets, namely that the 5 X £10 bets must be staked on one of the sports listed above, and all of the bets must carry selections with odds of at least evens (1/1 or 2.00) or higher. Other than that it’s completely up to you whether you bet on a single, a multiple, an acca etc – the free bet can be used on any in-play event you like, so long as it meets the conditions above.
To opt-in, head to the ‘Sports Offers’ tab under the ‘Promotions’ tab and click the big yellow ‘Opt-In’ button, and you’re good to go.
Unibet are well-known for their lucrative range of VIP and loyalty program bonuses, in fact their online casino has given some of the most generous bonuses ever seen. Their sports book is no exception, and the main loyalty program is the VIP scheme, which offers players handsome rewards across all of Unibet’s products, just for being a regular player at the site.
The VIP team are deliberately a little secretive about what the scheme actually entails (clearly to build anticipation around it and hype it up), but on the VIP page they do state that some of the benefits of becoming a VIP include bespoke betting services, invitations to private exclusive events, and special rewards and bonuses based on your account preferences and favourite markets.
You’ll also get a dedicated VIP manager who’s available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Some of the recent trips VIP’s have taken include jetting off to the Monaco Grand Prix, watching the Champions League Final, and enjoying free entry to the Unibet Open.
For full details you can check out the ‘VIP Programme’ page from the main ‘Promotions’ tab, where you’ll see more information about how it all works.
The Unibet Website
Unibet always have been, and likely always will be, a pioneer of online gambling, and their website is a testament to the way in which this company is run. The design and feel of the site can’t be found anywhere else, and everything is incredibly easy to use, easy to find, and optimised for your convenience. It’s an absolute breeze.
Take the initial signup process for example; many online bookies have as many as three or four different pages for you to fill out before you can access your account and begin betting, but Unibet have opted for a one page signup process which means you can create your account and get started in just a minute or two.
Below, we’re going to look at a couple of the other features which have helped Unibet become so successful.
Unibet’s was one of the first to embrace the growing mobile gambling market by creating their dedicated app, and many other bookmakers followed their lead.
If you’re using an iPad or iPhone, you can download the app for free from the PlayStore, and once it’s installed onto your device you can log in with your existing credentials or create a new account. Once you’re logged in, you can use the touch ID function to easily unlock the app whilst preventing unwanted access from anyone else.
If you’re using an Android device you’ll have to download the app manually from the Unibet website, and this is down to the fact that Google no longer allow online gambling apps to be promoted in the GooglePlay store.
Now, if you’re sitting there without an iOS or Android device then don’t worry, because all is not lost. Unibet also offer a mobile friendly website which you can access through your device’s internet browser, and this works in the same way as if you were at your computer. The only real difference is that the mobile website is somewhat stripped back so that it runs more efficiently, so the odd feature might be missing, but for the most part it will be the same as the desktop version.
It should go without saying that one of the main objectives for any online bookmaker is to offer players as wide a range of betting opportunities as possible. This is beneficial to both parties as the players have more incentive to join the site, thus the bookie makes more money at the same time as taking players away from their competition.
Many sportsbooks carry out expensive and aggressive marketing campaigns in order to do this, but Unibet are one of the few companies who don’t. It’s their incredibly wide range of betting markets and events alone that attracts thousands of new players every week, and whether you’re looking to take a punt on the weekend’s football or you want to get your last minute horse bets on, Unibet offer a tremendously diverse range of betting markets for you to enjoy.
You will find all of the markets available on the left-hand side of the homepage, and from here you are able to view the most popular markets as well as arrange them alphabetically.
Unibet offer five main deposit methods to players, and you can see these listed in the table below:
|Deposit Method||Fee||Processing Time||Minimum Deposit|
|Visa and Mastercard Debit/Credit cards||Free||Instant||£5|
The fact that Unibet allow punters to deposit just £5 means the site is highly attractive to people on even the smallest of budgets, as some other companies enforce minimum deposits as high as £20, believe it or not.
The withdrawal minimums are a little higher than we’d like to see, but nevertheless, we’ve included all the withdrawal information in the table below:
|Withdrawal method||Fee||Processing Time||Minimum Withdrawal|
|Visa Debit/Credit cards||Free||24 Hours||£15|
|VISA Maestro||Free||24 Hours||£15|
|Bank Transfer||Free||3-10 Days||£15|
|Neteller||Free||Up to 48 Hours||£10|
|Skrill||Free||Up to 48 Hours||£10|
Note: The processing times stated in the table above refers to the time in which it takes your money to reach your account, not the time it takes Unibet to process your withdrawal. Expect this to take around 24 hours, although it can be much quicker, especially if you make your withdrawal request in good time on a weekday.
