Unibet Sportsbook Review: Sports and markets available
Unibet has just over 10 sports available right now, and the main leagues are NFL, NBA, WTA/ATP tennis, as well as several European soccer leagues from around the globe. For regular-season games you are looking at around 50 markets, but there are occasionally bigger events where Unibet creates over 100.
Odds & Limits
Unibet offers very reasonable odds, especially for their major sports like soccer, tennis, and basketball. You can take a stab at any of these markets for just $1 per wager, which decreases dramatically for in-play markets. As it stands, Unibet has the highest payouts on offer for soccer and basketball, where members have reported that Unibet is happy to take on bets where the potential payout is in the six-figure region.
As a new sportsbook customer, you’ll receive $20 following completion of registration, and your first bet is also risk-free up to $250. Basically, this means that should your first sports bet go on to lose, you’ll be reimbursed by Unibet with up to $250.
Does Unibet provide good odds?
Yes, especially for the main markets for soccer, basketball, and tennis.
Can I make parlay bets?
100% – just click on multiple markets to add them to your betting slip, and you will even see the change in odds as you go.
Must I enter a promo code to get the welcome offer?
You will find that during the registration process you will have the chance to enter the promo code, which we highly encourage you to do to qualify for the welcome offer.
Can I get the welcome offer through a mobile app?
Yes, yes you can get your hands on the exact same welcome offer after downloading the Unibet mobile app.
Is there live streaming on the site?
For a limited number of events, yes there is. Live streaming is free as long as you have funds in your Unibet sportsbook account.
What are the main leagues covered?
Unibet covers NBA games, NFL games, and major events on the ATP/WTA tour.
Does the site support in-play bets?
Yes, in fact, this is one of the most impressive features of the whole site.
Does Unibet give cash-out options for sports bets?
Yes, but stick to the main leagues and markets to ensure that cash out is available.
Unibet Sportsbook Review: Additional Features
We didn't find the Unibet sportsbook to be presented with amazing development skills, but then again, they aren't really involved in any beauty competition. What they do have is a solid interface for the sportsbook, clearly labeled markets, and multiple sporting events available. This is the thing that most sports bettors look for, and Unibet absolutely ticks the boxes for these features.
How to place in-play bets
You can place in-play bets within the Unibet sportsbook from either the mobile app or the desktop platform. To check out what games you can actually bet on, just click on the live section that is contained in the list on the left-hand side of the page. You can actually see how many markets are available to bet on before even clicking the link.
After you have clicked the link, simply choose a market where you think that the odds are attractive, enter your wager, then you are good to go.
Live streaming is now available on the Unibet platform, but as it stands the range of events covered is still limited. We have found that you can access streamed events for basketball games, tennis matches, and even European soccer matches. Generally, the quality of these streams is quite good, which bodes well for Unibet going forward.
The Unibet mobile app can be downloaded on two operating systems, which are iOS and Android. From the mobile app, you basically have access to all of the features that Unibet supports from the desktop platform. This includes certain live streams, in-play betting markets, as well as the full scope of sports that they cover.
- Able to change odds presentation
Let's face facts, not everybody understands any one set of betting odds. Unibet clearly knows this, and we love the fact that you can change from American odds to decimal, and even fractional if you like.
- Global sports coverage
It was refreshing to see that a USA based sportsbook seemed to have such a strong focus on sports taking place outside of North America. For example, sports including Aussie rules, tennis, cricket, and even darts are available in the sportsbook.
- Live streaming
The live streaming services that you see with Unibet are totally brand new. As of right now, the coverage is somewhat limited to a select few events, but we did enjoy the fact that you can stream events from the mobile app and that there is no limit to how many events you can stream.
- Cash-out options
You won't find that Unibet provides cash out options for all of the bets that you make, but if you stick to the major markets, we found that they are actually quite generous with these cash-out offers. On top of this, you can cash out your bet with just a push of a button, which is important when things can change in a sporting event within seconds.
- Tons of in-play markets
In-play betting often gives you the opportunity to find markets and odds that you wouldn't usually find, and Unibet has these markets in rich supply.
Pros & Cons
Good coverage of USA based sports
Live streaming is somewhat limited
Excessive selection of in-play markets
Not a huge range of payment methods
Live streaming now available
Streamed events are at least 10 seconds behind the event
Competitive odds for popular events
Sportsbook presentation is quite static
Unibet Sportsbook Review – Top of the Class
We have examined a great deal of USA based sportsbooks so far in 2020. Now, having conducted a full review of the Unibet platform, we would happily recommend this sportsbook to anybody based in the USA. As you have seen in this review, they don't have the greatest range of sports, but they offer appealing odds, live streaming, and an abundance of live betting markets.
The notable absences from the Unibet sportsbook are college events and hockey, which are hugely popular with sports bettors across the nation. If Unibet could implement these sports over the coming months, then we would be looking at a truly comprehensive sportsbook.
