Background & License

Unibet is a Swedish web-site run by gambling and sports betting enthusiasts. It is owned by Unibet Group Plc, a company publicly listed at the Nordic Exchange in Stockholm, which means it is a company open to share holders, something that only big companies can do. Unibet started its sports betting business in 1997, and provides a platform for sports betting, casino gambling, and online poker playing to over eight million players all over the world in more than 150 countries. In order to be able to provide such services, Unibet holds a license issued in the jurisdiction of Malta.

Unibet is very conscious about responsible gambling and is aware that people tend to develop a gambling problem if they do not wager responsibly. That is why the Unibet Group has always been an active member and supporter of responsible gaming foundations and is part of some big programs. For example, Unibet is a founding member of EGBA and ESSA, and has been behind the EU Responsible Gaming Day in the EU Parliament. It is also an annual donator to the Gambling Therapy. Furthermore, Unibet is member of the EGBA (European Gaming and Betting Association), and RGA (Remote Gambling Association in the UK).

Unibet follows and complies with the Payment Card Industries Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) and those issued by the European gaming and betting association.

Where can I find glossary with betting terms?

We offer and maintain a betting glossary which is a non exhaustive list of traditional and modern bets. Non exhaustive because as the sports betting industry evolves so does our glossary. These bets can be found at any online bookmaker, so it would be very useful for you to learn them.

Sports and In-Play

With all the traditional forms of betting Unibet cannot surprise you… or could it? With an amazing range of exotics and special bets that were tailored according to the tendencies of Unibet’s punters, Unibet can surprise you for sure. Betting is possible on all major sporting contests, especially for football, basketball and tennis matches. Their tremendous live in-play betting is where they excel with the exotics on selected events.

Unibet also features SuperToto betting where punters have to predict the result of 10 selected events. For this an overall betting prize pool is formed. Besides SuperToto, Unibet offers SuperScore too where punters are required to predict the exact result in 3 selected events.

Football

Unibet offers some of the most comprehensive markets for UK football betting for which regular special offers are given. Their odds are quite good and sometimes the finest available for big games, especially for Scandinavian football. They don't offer Asian handicap to some of the football leagues and their limits are a bit lower for less known ones. The only explanation why there are so many European football leagues covered at Unibet is that they are on the mission to cover any possible football competition in Europe. Football punters can place bets daily on over 15 000 offerings, on leagues from England, Scotland, Spain, Italy, Germany, Australia, Austria, Wales, Mexico and many more.

Live In-Play Betting

Unibet are considered innovators in live sports streaming. They have a dedicated channel for streaming which was made available to users of their software and offers different sports from around the world. Their live streaming channel is incorporated with their live betting portal. Any feature that adds to the user experience is a welcomed one, like the comprehensive statistics section for loads of information for a wide variety of sports. For example, in the case of football you can view league tables, fixtures, results of previous fixtures, or you can view head to head match ups and detailed reviews of previous games.

Banking & Service

Fast and secure deposits can be made at Unibet via your credit/debit card, directly from your bank account, via prepaid cards like Ukash and Paysafecard or popular e-wallet services like Skrill and Neteller. If you want to deposit directly from your bank account you will need to know the bank details of Unibet in order to be able to complete the transfer. All of this can be accessed easily through the Deposit button on Unibet’s web-site.

Withdrawing is easy too. Just select ‘Withdrawal’ from your ‘My account’ page and you will see different ways that you can withdraw your money along with the minimum and maximum limits for each type. You can always withdraw with the same method you chose for depositing. The same methods used for depositing apply for withdrawal too. For large withdrawals Unibet may request some documents before they can process your request.

At the moment Unibet allows depositing in about fifteen different currencies, including CAD, CHF, GBP, NOK, USD etc., and once selected, you cannot change it through your account on the web-site.

Unibet’s customer support is equally good as the entire Unibet experience. People can freely access the support staff to address any they feel uncertain about Unibet’s service and products. The customer support team can be accessed most effectively through live chat, where with one click of the mouse you can start a live conversation. Also there is an email intended especially for UK and Irish residents, and an international telephone number. The support staff is available 24/7.

After registering and logging in at Unibet, all information is encrypted using 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, a certificate issued and verified by Trustwave.

Also, you can download the apps from three different sources. iPhone users can download it from the iTunes store, Android users can download it by going to http://unibet.me/u-pro and Windows 8 users can download it from the Windows Phone Store. The installation process is simple and brief and everything is basically automated, so you shouldn’t have any problems.

Unibet’s commitment to provide its customers with the best betting solutions available is reflected in its devotion to enable mobile betting users to get the most out of Unibet helped with a fully dedicated customer support team. Overall the app is nice and simple and is ideal for betting especially on football, although lots of other markets are covered in order to compete with other competitors. It’s a great app for those that enjoy simple betting on the go with only basic options and comprehensive statistics displaying team or individual stats for the current or previous seasons.

As the first operator to ever release Android mobile betting app Unibet continues to develop its mobile technology even till today, and will continue to do that until it perfects it. The app can fully function on most mobile devices and smart phones. It follows the very same design scheme as the desktop website with the green colour as the primary, making the app quite pleasing for the eye. The app runs smoothly with only few and rare glitches.

With the Unibet mobile betting app punters can place single and multi bets in 16 different languages. After setting up the app you will be able to choose a PIN code that you can use instead of your account password.

Placing bets is real easy. Just go to your desired market and click on your preferred event. Your selection will appear automatically into your bet slip with all the accompanying details needed (the odds, the stake, hour etc.). If you want to make more selections just keep clicking on other events. You can remove them by clicking on the waste bin icon right next to the odds.

Another cool feature is the statistics section where you can view full team or individual statistics. Individual statistics display even player’s personal accomplishments. You can view extensive details about past matches, like referee, stadium, attendance and other full match statistics from number of shots on goal to the number of keeper’s saves.

And the feature that will catch your eye immediately is the cash in option with which you can settle your bets before a live in-play match has finished.

Also, if you place your first bet using the mobile betting app up to £10 it will be refunded as a £10 free bet if it was a losing bet.

Unibet also refunds all losing bets that were placed for correct score, halftime/fulltime, first goal scorer and last goal scorer up to £80 on a Champions League where a injury time goal was scored.
