Sports selection — normal

On the Unibet Sportsbook, we were able to find margin averages for games in all of the top leagues and sports offered on Unibet. The margin is the percentage of each wager that the sportsbook will keep as a guaranteed profit. For each different competition, we took the margins from bets on both the moneyline and on the over/under for total points. 

Soccer

Average Margin = 6%

From the seemingly endless number of options on to choose from in the soccer section, we were able to focus on five different leagues. The total average margin for soccer was calculated out to exactly six percent, placing the sport into the normal category.The average margin for the MLS was at 6.16%, while for the top league like the English Premier League the margin was averaged to 4.61%. For average leagues we looked at the Scottish Premiership and found the margin average to be at 7.23%. 

Tennis

Average Margin = 5.65%

We looked at two major tennis competitions to find the average margins offered for the sport. The total average was 5.65, which places the sport in the bad category. For the French Open Qualifiers, the margin average was 5.92 and for the ATP Hamburg 5.38. The market used for both leagues was on the main result.

Hockey

Average Margin = 4.52%

Here we looked at games from the NHL. The total average margin for this league and sport was 4.52. This is a very nice margin and would be placed in the good category. 

Basketball

Average Margin = 4.46%

Many different leagues were available for the sport of basketball on Unibet. We were able to look at three of the top leagues and found the total margin average for the sport to be 4.46, placing the number right near the top of the good category. The average margin in the NBA was 4.39. Finally, for the EuroLeague, the average margin came out to 4.52. Both the result and over/under total points markets were used.

Other Competitions

  • Baseball (MLB, Japan NPB) = 4.97%
  • Football (NFL) = 4.54%
  • MMA (UFC) = 5.08%

Betting options — good

Unibet also has brand new sports betting guides on the site that are made specifically to teach you betting on US sports and competitions. There you can learn about the different betting types featured on the site and how they work. 

There is a lot to take in here, as Unibet features lots of different betting markets. Below are the different types of bets available on Unibet Sportsbook. 

Money Line

Parlay

Straight

Teasers

Spread

Over/Under

Live

Future

Prop

Asian Handicap

Result

Odd/Even

Period

Each Way

Double Chance

Goal Minutes

Some of the most popular bets are money line and betting on the spread. However, with the Unibet weekly parlay bonus, it's not a bad idea to put a few bets together once in a while and go all in.

Live — good

Unibet has a very good live section that can match up with just about any sportsbook in New Jersey. On the home page of the sports betting section, there is a box in the center showing the number of live events currently going on.

For each game, there is also a short description of the type of tournament it is, as well as some information about the format of betting that is being used. For example, for a golf tournament you will see two ball, 18 hole bets, etc. 

When clicking on a live event (depending on the sport), you will be brought to the match center for this game. All of the bets will be listed down the center separated by the bet type as well as a new section for ‘action bets’ which update constantly throughout the game.

Unibet Live Betting

There is also a live scoreboard to the right of the odds. The scoreboard will show the player the match score and certain statistics pertaining to the game. For tennis they will show who is serving, the percentage of first serves won by the players, how many aces each player has and the break point conversion percentage.

The scores and odds update in real time. There is no live streaming yet on the site, but there is enough present for the player to comfortably make live bets even without a television or stream present.

About the sportsbook

Unibet began in London and is currently available in multiple states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania. On the site, you can find many different types of sports and bets to place on the competitions.The site keeps the player in the game with live betting, consistently adding new promotions and always alerting you to upcoming competitions. 

Betting with Unibet can be done on desktop and through the use of its sports betting apps. You can download the apps for both Android and Apple. Once you have the mobile apps set up it will be possible to bet on the go with maximum convenience. The site’s software will be run by Kambi, a B2B subsidiary of Unibet. The software company is very experienced and also has partnerships in place with sportsbooks like DraftKings and 888.

Unibet Official Site

There are not many differences between states in regards to the look and layout of the US Unibet sports betting site. The sportsbook follows a green and yellow color scheme and features many different competitions down the center of the home page.

Unibet Site Overview

However, the USA versions of Unibet are noticeably more simple than international versions of the site. The most obvious option missing is the horse racing section, along with bingo and poker. On Unibet’s USA sportsbooks, you will have main sections for sports betting and casino only.

We believe the other sections will be eventually added, but with that being said sports betting on the site does include more than is immediately noticeable at first glance. There is a both a live betting section for games currently being played and a starting soon section.

Both of these sections make it incredibly easy to browse different events or to narrow down your search for a specific game, league or sport. This is especially true with starting soon games, as you can filter the event order by league or time.

Unibet also has a section for promotions and special offers on the site as well as a USA sports betting guide. In these sections you can both learn about different types of bets and take advantage of any current bonuses that Unibet has available.

Registration and Verification

Signing up and registering an account at Unibet is the first step in being able to bet on the site. The signup process does not contain anything too out of the ordinary and is not very time consuming. 

The signup sheet will ask for account and personal information as well have you agree to a few terms and conditions at the end. You can read about the entire Unibet registration process in more detail on our site. 

Completing the registration process can be done following these steps:

  1. Go to Unibet and select the yellow 'Join Now' button

  2. Fill out the registration form with accurate information

  3. Wait for the verification email from Unibet

  4. Make a deposit and begin betting!

In general, the entire process can be completed in around five minutes or so. The terms and conditions at the end of the process detail the rules for playing on Unibet. There will also be some relating to the federal and state regulations, which of course will depend on where you are signing up.

  • Unibet may have welcome offers available for new players. You should always check to see which bonuses are available and write down the bonus code. There is a place during registration where you can enter this code.

Finally, Unibet will verify your information and confirm your account. If during Unibet’s verification, it finds something that does not match your identification provided, they may ask you to correct the information or to provide additional documents.

Unibet Bonuses, Promo Codes

Bonuses and promotions on a site are one of the best things about sports betting. Unibet USA sites feature a decent amount of bonuses. There is almost always at least a welcome bonus as well as ongoing promotions for both new and existing users. 

Money made from Unibet bonuses can only be withdrawn after that offer’s requirements have been met. There could be any sort of requirements including playthrough, wagering or other requirements. 

Types of bonuses and promotions you can find on Unibet:

  • Parlay Boosts
  • Free Bets
  • Profit Boosts
  • Matched Deposits
  • Risk-Free Bets
  • Prize Giveaways
  • Reload Bonuses
  • Matched Bets

The weekly parlay boosts are often available on Unibet, and are great promotions that can be consistently used. This gives you the chance to make three parlays each week that if won, will have the profits boosted by 10%, 20% or 30% depending on the number of legs in each parlay.

Some offers will require you to opt in with a bonus code. Unibet bonus codes are a series of numbers and letters associated with a certain promotion. For example: UBSPORTS500. You can find these in the description on the bonus’s page in the ‘promo’ section. 

For welcome bonuses, you can enter the relevant bonus code during registration to receive the offer upon completion. If a bonus code is available for the promotion, it is vital that you write it down and enter it. You may not be able to receive the bonus at all if you do not include it. 

Unibet Review: Deposits And Withdrawals

Depositing into and withdrawing from Unibet can be done at any time after an account has been created. The minimum deposit amount on Unibet is ten dollars. Making a deposit or withdrawal on Unibet can be done following a few simple steps. 

  1. Log in to your account with your username and password

  3. Select deposit or withdrawal; choose a method of payment
  4. Enter in the amount you wish to deposit or withdrawal

You can deposit on Unibet using a range of online and in person methods.

Payment MethodDepositWithdrawal
Visa/MastercardYesNo
PayPalYesYes
Online BankingYesYes
Play+ CardYesYes
PayNearMeYesNo

Withdrawing bonus money can only be done after meeting the wagering requirements for that specific bonus. Winnings accumulated from bonus funds can be immediately withdrawn, but only if the player cancels the bonus or promotion.

You will have three separate accounts for holding money on Unibet; unlocked, locked and bonus. Your winnings from bonuses will be placed into the locked account unless stated otherwise. Only after wagering requirements are completed or the bonus is cancelled will these funds be transferred to the unlocked account, and made available for withdrawals.

Unibet Sports Betting App

Unibet’s mobile betting app is available for both Android and Apple devices. You can download the IOS version directly from the Apple store, whereas the Android version must be downloaded off of the Unibet website. You can get both of these versions for free.

Unibet Mobile Betting App Positives

  • Follows website design with same bet types and odds

  • Live betting section with match tracker is very good

  • Customer service live chat included on the app

  • Graphics are clean and fit nicely 

Things That Can Use Improvement

  • Must allow a lot of phone permissions for Unibet App

  • App can be very slow at times

  • Difficult and drawn out withdrawal process

While the Unibet betting app overall is acceptable, there are still vital things that need to be improved on. However, many of the overall negatives of this betting app have to do with the casino portion, as the sports betting side of things matches up well with other mobile apps.

You can find almost all of the same bets as on the desktop version, the live betting section is truly exceptional. The match tracker follows every single happening in each game and fits perfectly in the top half of the screen.

Whenever you need to either ask a question or settle a dispute, there are a few different ways that you can get in touch with Unibet. You can either call the Unibet phone line or send an email to the customer support team. There is also a live chat feature available on both the desktop and the mobile apps. The live chat and phone line are both always available. 

Questions and answers

What makes Unibet sports betting so great?

Beyond the live betting section and the promotions, the number one positive thing about Unibet is the high number of sports and ways to bet.

There are around 34 sports that Unibet has on tap that can be made available whenever there are bets available. This is definitely more than average and when combined with a large variety of bet types you have plenty of ways to play.

How to get a Unibet free bet?

Unibet free bets are one of the many different promotions that are made available on the site from time to time. The best time to look for these is when you are signing up one the site, as they are usually included in welcome offers.

However, they can also show up for existing users who complete various requirements. It is always a good idea to check the ‘promos’ area to find out about new promotions.

How to use a Unibet bonus bet?

Once you have completed the requirements for receiving a bonus bet, you can wager the money like normal by selecting the bonus funds. Free bets, however, may come with their own terms and conditions. 

One of the most common restrictions are the odds that the market must have. For example, Unibet may specify that the odds must be -500 or higher in order to use your bonus bet. Other rules could specify a specific sport, league or game you must bet on.
