Unibet UK Review 2019
Unibet as a sportsbook started life in 1997 when founder, Anders Ström, decided to share his sporting knowledge to help other people with their betting. This led to the creation of the Unibet online bookmaker we see today and it has gone from strength to strength.
Now part of the Kindred Group, one of the largest online gambling companies in the world, Unibet has won several betting industry awards. The business is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner, so you are in safe hands.
Unibet continues to sponsor sporting events and teams such as the Champions League and World Grand Prix darts tournaments, Aston Villa Football Club and Essex Cricket Club.
Unibet UK Bonus £40 money back
When creating account as a new customer in the UK, you can enjoy £40 money back as a bonus on your first bet and a £10 casino bonus to get you started.
The £40 is refunded as bonus money if your first bet loses, so you can place a bet having signed up with Unibet knowing you will not lose any money should your bet lose. To qualify for this bonus, you must place a sports bet of minimum £1 with odds 2/5 (1.40) or greater. If the bet wins, it will be settled in the normal way, if it loses you will receive your stake back up to a maximum of £40.
Keep in mind that the bonus will expire after 7 days and if you received £40 bonus money you need to bet £120 to complete the bonus conditions.
Unibet Betting Markets
As with many online bookmakers targeting the UK market, football and horse racing are the dominant sports when loading up the Unibet homepage. The ‘Racing Next to Go’ menu shows all the upcoming horse races in the UK and beyond while below that you will find the biggest upcoming football matches and tennis matches on which to bet.
While football and tennis dominate, Unibet bookmaker also offer 1,000 potential bets on Australian Rules, basketball, ice hockey and rugby. Cricket, volleyball, handball and baseball are also well represented at Unibet.
Unibet Water Sports Betting: surfing, boat race and more
Unfortunately, there was only two water sports competitions on which to bet in Unibet UK at the time of writing. The university boat race, which takes place annually and WSL Championship Tour surfing. There were at least a few options in the surfing category on the bookmaker’s page, including the winner of the men’s WSL Championship 2019, winner of the Quicksilver Pro Gold Coast 2019, the winner of the women’s WSL Championship 2019 and winner of the Boost Mobile Pro Gold Coast 2019.
Unibet Olympics Betting. Bet on 2020 Tokyo games
The good news is Unibet are somewhat ahead of their competitors in that they had some Olympic Games betting markets available to UK customers over a year ahead of the event. These betting markets included the nation to finish top of the medals table, the winner of the men’s football tournament plus special Armand Duplantis and Jakob Ingebrigsten markets. Both are Scandinavian athletes and this may have something to do with Unibet’s roots, which are Scandinavian.
We hope to find more Olympic Games markets being added to Unibet UK, including aquatic events, in the build up to the games.
In-play Betting and Online Streaming
Unibet’s in-play betting feature has long been one of the favourites for many online gamblers. The simple reason being the easy access and simple to use in-play menu and the wealth of options in terms of betting markets.
The extent of the football in-play markets is fantastic but Unibet cover a wide range of sports for live betting including tennis, basketball, cycling, ice hockey, snooker, volleyball, handball and Esports.
Online streaming is good and Unibet have a link on the website which takes you directly to their live streams. You can watch football, snooker, tennis, basketball, baseball, ice hockey, handball and volleyball to name but a few.
Unibet UK Mobile App Review
The Unibet UK mobile app is available to download in the Google Play and App store for Android and Apple devices respectively. There is no option to download it from the desktop site. You can also bet on wtare sports and Tokyo 2020 Olympics with Unibet mobile app.
You will find the same distinctive green colour scheme on the app plus all the live betting markets, live streaming options and odds. You can even enjoy weekly promotions so you will never miss out when using the Unibet UK mobile app.

There are no fees attached to any of the above payment methods and while not being the biggest selection you will find online; most punters should be able to use at least one of the options.
