While online sports betting can be seen as a phenomenon which has spread over the last decade or so, Unibet has a heritage in the betting industry dating back to 1997. As you would expect for a company which has been a key operator for 20 years, they offer a platform which is highly professional, well thought out, and not short on tempting offers.
Bag Your Bonuses
The stream of bonuses and promotions offered by Unibet begins even before you have placed your first bet. That’s in the form of a £30 bonus if your first bet loses. It means you can make your first punt with the peace of mind which comes with knowing you will win one way or another – perfect for that stab at a long shot! If you are a fan of US sports such as ice hockey and the NBA, you may be interested in a weekly £10,000 cash prize draw which applies to those placing bets on fixtures from across the pond. Then there is a £40 refer a friend bonus which gives ‘Unibetters’ the chance to receive a reward for pointing their amigos in the right direction – you can refer up to five, adding up to a £200 combined bonus. You can expect a series of promotions relating to the highest profile ongoing events, as well as the In-Play Free Bet Club, which offers a free £10 in-play bet to those placing five or more £10 in-play bets on football, tennis or cricket.
A Sporting Centre
Unibet offers a wide spread of pre-match and in-play sports markets from across the world. Prominence is given to in play markets at any given time, meaning at certain times of the day US sports are more likely to take centre stage on the sports page, while at others, European-based fixtures will have their time in the limelight. While many sports betting platforms utilise a sidebar to list the various sports which can be bet on, Unibet puts its own spin on things with a ‘popularity count’, allowing punters to see which sports and events are seeing the most action at any given time. At the time of writing, football’s World Cup qualifying games led the way, followed by cricket’s Champions Trophy and horse racing.
A ‘Special Touch’
As many football fans are fully aware, the sport brings a lot of drama off the field, as well as on it. This leaves the door open to markets which are focused on the managerial merry-go-round, as well as the transfer market which is in full flow during the ‘windows’ allowed by leagues. Unibet takes full advantage, offering the chance to bet on the identity of new managers ahead of the season, as well as the destination of players. Do you think a player will take a move to a bigger club, or remain put? Unibet allows you to predict their employer at a certain point in time, with different odds on a selection of clubs the player might switch to, as well as their current team.
Unibet doesn’t let the side down when it comes to casino play, either. There is a range of slots, table games and jackpots to choose from, with a 200 per cent casino deposit bonus to be had. Live casino has its own section on the Unibet platform, with real dealers hosting table games for players who thrive off that authentic feel when they are placing bets. Winnings of up to £200,000 can be bagged with live roulette, while other options include live money wheel, live blackjack, live casino holdem, live baccarat, live Caribbean stud poker, live Ultimate Texas Holdem poker and live 3-card poker.
Live Streaming and BetUP
Unibet offers live streaming on selected events, giving punters the chance to follow the action live and bet in-play. This service is known as UTV and then there is BetUP, a chance to bet on live football and receive points for predicting unfolding events correctly, taking a share of an overall prize pot.
