At Unibet, players can expect professional service and access to user friendly software.
Unibet offers a variety of betting on different sports, including American football, the NBA and less prominent sports such as water polo, handball and skiing. However, football remains the favourite. The odds on football bets, though well worth it, are almost always slightly lower than the competition's odds. To compensate, Unibet offers special bets and combination bets with excellent odds. The company also conducts online gaming.
The minimum bet at Unibet is €1.
At Unibet, players may, after logging in, deposit money into their player’s account by credit card (Visa, Euro/Mastercard), Internet Wallet (NETeller, Moneybookers), bank transfer or by phone using credit card details.

Unibet offers a standard bonus to all new members. Upon opening a new account, Unibet will match the first deposit up to €50. If the first deposit is €50, Unibet will, likewise, deposit €50 into the player's account. If the first deposit is a smaller amount, Unibet will still match the amount.

Live betting is another exciting aspect of Unibet. Quick thinking is the name of the game! Players may limit losses by claiming back part of their bet during the live event, or choose to quickly cash out their winnings.
Amongst all the foreign bookmakers, Unibet is the most popular. The website is concise, user friendly and easy to navigate. Unfortunately, Unibet's customer service is disappointing and some patience is required when dealing with that department. Hopefully, this will be improved in the near future. The range of betting on offer and the availability of online gaming make Unibet one of Europe’s better online bookmakers.
