At the end of the day, Unibet sportsbook delivered just what we expected from one of the leading online sportsbook brands in the niche.
We are thrilled to see how they have accommodated to the American market by offering special parlay boosts for NFL games. The range of betting markets for pro football matches is even better than we expected both for regular-season games and for future bets.
The welcome offer is decent and in-line with market standard. Bettors will love the live-betting action and user-friendly odds. Sadly, there is no live streaming function available yet, but we simply have to give Unibet the highest grades for what we’ve seen in their early beginnings on the US market.

No, there is no bonus code required. You will opt-in for Unibet’s welcome offer simply by registering a new account.
There is no particular information in regard to this matter at the moment. They have to negotiate US’ major leagues for broadcasting rights.
The correct way of saying Unibet is Uni (as in University) Bet. We have heard variations such as You and I Bet. Don't say that to anybody working at Unibet, they might get offended 😀.
Unibet is the official sports betting partner to to NHL team New Jersey Devils and the official casino partner to Philadelphia Eagles. Unibet are like many other sportsbooks also partners to the NBA which is giving them access to league data and information.
Martin Brodeur, one of the all time greatest hockey goalies is a Unibet brand ambassador.
The inaugural visit to Unibet online sportsbook revealed that they cover pretty much everything an ordinary gambler would like to bet on.
We first checked what’s going on in the football section since football in general – and NFL in particular – is the most popular betting event in the US. Football also holds the primary position in the list of sports which shows how player-oriented Unibet are.
We have 21 years of DNA of sports betting…that is differentiating us from some of the competitors

Just before the match day weekend, Unibet had 3741 different betting markets on the menu for the most popular US sport. Three main markets are highlighted when you select the desired league and see the list of matches available for betting.
You will instantly see spread lines, total points lines, and moneyline. A single match will offer around 85-90 additional markets to bet on. For instance, we found it particularly interesting to see some of the following markets for a match between Baltimore Ravens and Arizona Cardinals:
|Selection of bet types offered|
|Money Line & Total Points combined|
|Alternate Lines – Arizona Cardinals from +1 to +26.5 handicap betting|
|The first team to 10, 15, 20, 25, etc. points|
|First scoring play – touchdown, field goal, or safety|
|Total yards of the shortest touchdown|
|Total yards of the longest touchdown|
|Total yards of the shortest/longest successful field goal|
Such a rich range of markets is available for all NFL matches. College football betting is also present but you have half the NFL markets on the menu for NCAAF games.
Unibet had 3741 different markets on one week of NFL games.
When it comes to other sports, the full list can be found on the left-hand side. It involves:
|Selection of sports to bet on|
|🏈 Football||⚾ Baseball||🏀 Basketball|
|🏒 Hockey||⚽ Soccer||🎾 Tennis|
|🏏 Cricket||⛳ Golf||🎯 Darts|
|👊 MMA||🏎️ Motor Racing||🏉 Rugby|
|🚴 Cycling||🎓 College Sports||and more…|
There were some betting options available for each of these sports. Above the whole list, Unibet highlighted the most significant sports/events. NFL, NCAAF, MLB, NBA, NHL, FIFA World Cup, and English Premier League were there. All the big sports events going on in the world will be featured there as well.
This sportsbook does not take sports betting lightly – whether it is a big sports event or a minor one – the betting options are plenty. On top of the everyday offer, Unibet also have an exciting prospect of future bets.
Here is what we found on the menu for the NFL season:
If you are looking for Tennis picks, Unibet is a go to place. Sean Calvert, Unibet tennis expert, provides all Unibet customers with competitive tennis picks based on extensive research.
For MMA fans, Unibet UFC offer is one of the best on the market. Unibet has a long history of UFC betting. They were one of the first sportsbooks to give this sport full attention and for a long time, they worked closely with the Swedish, nowadays retired, UFC veteran Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson.
Unibet are known for the friendliness of their odds in Europe and there is no reason why their US version should be any different. The first look at their odds reveals they are pretty much the industry standard. We compared the odds at Unibet sportsbook to those at FanDuel and William Hill to figure there was no major difference in terms of profitability.
All three common variants of odds are available (fractional, decimal, and American). You can easily shift to the preferred method at the bottom of the page.
Live betting takes a special part of Unibet’s culture. This bookmaker pays special attention to this segment. US residents will from now on have the chance to enjoy a whole new level of the in-play betting. We tested Unibets live betting schedule in non-busy hours on purpose, but they still offered quite a decent action.
Superfast live betting, you can even bet on next point in tennis.
We went to their in-play section in the early morning hours and found almost 30 different events available for betting. FIBA Basketball World Cup semi-final between Australia and Spain held the center of attention, while sports such as golf and tennis were also on the menu.
Matches from low-profile tennis tournaments (ITF – by far the lowest category of tennis tournaments) were available for the in-play betting.
The array of markets and odds was especially impressive. We could thus bet on the winner of the next point in tennis for example. The odds were completely fair and very similar to those Unibet sportsbook generally offer across the ocean. For basketball, you can bet whether the next field goal will be a two-pointer or a three-pointer.
Unibet have one of the most recognizable live streaming services in the world of betting in the like of their Unibet TV. However, they are yet to introduce such perks to the US market which is no surprise given how tough is to regulate live streaming rights with the most popular American leagues.
For now, you do not have the luxury of watching your favorite teams or players via Unibet’s live streaming service. There are no signs whether the company will introduce it any time soon, but we will make sure to keep you updated.
Betting on the go with Unibet mobile app is another perk with sports wagering at Unibet. The sportsbook is well aware of the significance the mobile betting has worldwide and the United States should really not be an exception.
All bets placed from the app placed through a web browser.
They have thus created a app for both Android and iOS devices. It is important to mention that you can’t place bets via the mobile browser. If you are using a portable device, the only way is to download the apps. Unibets’ Risk-Free Bet of $500 can therefore also be used through the Unibet app. Everything available on the web browser is present in the apps, meaning you can register a new account, make deposits/withdrawals, place bets, check your bet history, etc. through the apps as well.
The American market is somewhat specific in terms of banking methods as well. Unibet offer a much broader range of options for their European users, but they had to limit these to just six depositing and three withdrawals methods when entering the US market.
The minimum amount for both deposits and withdrawals is $10 for all methods. More details can be found in the table:
|Processing Time||Payment Type||Minimum Deposit|
|Mastercard||Instant||Payment Technology Company||$10|
|Visa||Instant||Payment Technology Company||$10|
|ACH Vip Preferred||Instant||E-Check||$10|
|Wire Transfer||Instant||Online Banking||$10|
|Unibet Prepaid Card||Instant||Prepaid Card||$10|
|Payment Method||Processing Time||Payment Type||Minimum Withdrawal|
|PayPal||2-5 Business Days||E-Wallet||$10|
|Bank Transfer||2-5 days||E-Wallet||$10|
It is important to mention that you can use Paypal as a withdrawal method only if you had previously deposited via this e-wallet. It is the most recommended way to do transactions with Unibet.
