The customer base spans more than 100 countries.

Customer support

Unibet customer support offers multiple-language live chat option. It is also possible to contact them by sending an email. Speaking about their email service we should say they aren't as fast as many others bookies. But we should also say than they have pages with some of the most popular questions and answers that helps a lot, especially the beginners (FAQ).

Lack of phone service probably remains just a money saving exercise.

You can also send them an email in your own language (English, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Belgium (Dutch or French), Finnish and Romanian). To make your experience easier, you can find a weekly time table schedule when the rest of supporting langugages are available at live chat or email option, with exception of English which is available 24/7/365.

Their website is available in more than fifteen languages including: English, Spanish, French, Russian, German, Portuguese, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish, Belgian, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Hungarian, Romanian, Estonian and Lithuanian.

Payment options, deposit and withdrawal methods

You can open an account in thirteen different currencies: US Dollar, EURO, Pound Sterling, Norwegian Krone, Danish Krona, Swedish Krona, Swiss Franc, Polish Zloty, Hungarian Forint, Czech Koruna, Croatian Kuna, Canadian Dollar and Estonian Kroon. Unibet free bet can be claimed in any currency.

You can deposit using all major credit and debit cards (Visa, Maestro, MasterCard or Entropay), Bank Wire, Neteller, Skrill (Moneybookers), Paysafecard, Ukash and Switch. There is no deposit fees when using any of their banking options.

At present, you can withdraw your funds only to Skrill, Neteller and bank account. All withdrawals are free of charge. Typically, you’ll receive a NETELLER or Skrill withdrawal within 12 hours, while a bank transfer can take 1-3 working days.

As with every reliable bookmaker, you will be able to withdraw the money back only to an option previously used for deposit, while all non Skrill and Neteller deposits are subject to a Bank Wire withdrawal.

Banking options may severely depend from country to countries, such as that some Eastern European users are excluded from Skrill/Neteller banking options and limited to a Bank Wire option only.

Due to applicable laws, upon creating account, they will request that you make a full verification of your identity so you don't get stucked with the process once you try to withdraw your funds.

They may ask you to upload digital photos or screenshots of certain documents such as National Identity Card or Passport photo to verify your indentity or Utility Bill/Bank Statement as a proof of your address.

Betting coverage, Odds quality, Live betting

Talking about football, their odds are quite good, sometimes the best available, especially at the Nordic leagues offers. They may do not offer the best odds sometimes, because they have medium commission in their markets, but their odds are very well accepted in most of the cases.

They don't offer Asian handicap to some of football leagues, just European handicaps, something that surprised us when we tested them to update this Unibet review.

However, if you are interested into special markets such as "foul markets", "cards markets" or "ball possession markets", you may find them very interesting especially in top European leagues.

Their great Live betting console allows you to place bets on the action while the match is being played. As a customer you can watch hundreds of live streamed sports events every month for free. They offer a very good live streaming and live betting console which is very easy to use.

Their in play betting console is one of the website's strongest parts. Variety of their in-play offer goes hand by hand with industry leaders, now including sports such as cycling, motorsports, rugby league, rygby union, snooker, boxing and more.

You can place bets online via their site, phone betting or mobile betting is also available. Live betting, pre-match betting, statistics and live score updates are all available on their mobile site. You can also make deposits and withdraw your winnings via your mobile phone.

Talking about basketball, their handicaps are getting better in comparison with the past, as they now operate with a 4.4% average profit margin to this sport, have many players specials and generally big number of offers for basketball matches.

Other sports are offered more and more, as they now stand out as one of European best sportsbook when talking about variety and is far away from "Nordic's specialist" they were a decade ago.

Mobile betting

You can place bets online via their site, but mobile betting is also available. Live betting, pre-match betting, statistics and live score updates are all available on their mobile site. You can also make deposits and withdraw your winnings via your mobile phone.

You can also take advantage of the same mobile offer (the different welcome promotions including £20 in free poker tickets, £30 money back on your first bet (if it loses), a 200% casino deposit bonus, currency equivalent and more.

You can download their Iphone app to your Ipad or Apple Watch simply by visiting the App store. Android users can download the application from their mobile website, while Apple customers need iOS 9.00 or later to be compatible with their application.

Apart from Sports App, they also have three more dedicated applications: Casino, Live Casino and Poker App. Live streaming is fully available for all mobile app versions.

About Unibet Sportsbook

Their limits are a bit low in lower and less known football leagues. They have to offer low limits in markets of these leagues, trying to not lose much in their odds makers' mistakes. As for famous and big leagues there is no problem with limits and you can bet a very big amount of cash.

Generally the sportsbook is quite good with high standards and lot of offers for each game.

Even though limited banking options for some countries may be frustrating, great live streaming variety, decent odds and large range of betting markets and withdrawals without any charges, are some of their strong points of this well established brand.

Reliability

They are based and regulated in Malta. We should say that they have an excellent reputation all over the internet and it is hard to find customers than they had serious problems with them. They are a member of the EGBA, European Gaming and Betting Association, the Remote Gambling Association in the UK and audited and certified by eCOGRA in relation to responsible and fair gaming.

In our opinion, a bookmaker that everybody should have in his list, in order to be able and get the best odds possible, because using only one bookmaker it's difficult to get the best possible solution for yourself. They are one of the most awarded sportbook's in previous years, being consistently recognized for their excellent products.

Some of the awards are in last three years are: Socially Responsible Operator, Sports Betting Operator, In-Play Sports Operator of the Year, Online Sportsbook Operator of the Year, Inovation of the year etc.

Always check this review regularly if you are interested about a sign-up bonus offer, as their new customer bonuses are changing frequently, and are depending on customer's location.
