Unibet is an old hand in the sports betting industry and is considered a modern bookmaker. Founded in 1997, this renowned bookmaker with Swedish roots has been placing bets online since 1999. In the meantime, over 6 million customers have opened a betting account on the portal, which is operated by Trannel International Ltd. is operated. The betting provider is one of the absolute heavyweights and the expectations for the Unibet Test are correspondingly high! Are the advance laurels justified? My experience report provides the answer.
Step 1: The registration process at Unibet is completed quickly. To open a betting account, you must first click on “Register” on the homepage on the top right. The yellow button cannot be missed on the green background.
Step 2: Next, the registration window opens. At the top, Unibet provides you with information on the welcome bonus. Clicking on “See all offers” opens a drop-down menu from which you can choose between the new customer bonus for sports betting, casino or poker. No interest? Then just click “I don’t want a welcome offer”. But be careful: the decision cannot be undone after registration. To the right of the bonus note, you will find information about customer service.
Below this, the first personal data are requested. First name, surname, an email address, date of birth and gender are to be entered here. After you have finished your work, click on “Next”.
Step 3: Now follow the information about your place of residence. Street and house number as well as post code and the city are requested. In the same registration window you also have to enter your mobile phone number and the preferred currency, with the euro already selected. With a click on “Next” you are approaching the end of the registration process.
Step 4: Security is now the focus. So in the next step you have to register a password for your user account, which consists of at least 8 characters and contains 2 special characters (capital letters, numbers, punctuation marks). There is also a personal security question that comes into play if you forget your password. Select one of the 4 questions (e.g. maiden name of my mother?) And enter the answer in the field. With “Continue” it continues.
Step 5: Now you have to confirm the bonus selection you made at the beginning and the bonus conditions attached to it. Of course you can also turn down the offers. Then you can choose whether you want to receive information about offers and promotions or not. At the end, a check mark is required to confirm your legal age and acceptance of the terms and conditions and data protection guidelines. With a click on “Register” the registration process is complete and you will be forwarded directly to your new betting account – without a confirmation email or the like. You will be presented with the deposit methods directly, but you can also take a look around without a deposit and study the full Unibet offer.
Bonus & VIP program
New customers can expect a welcome bonus at Unibet , which deserves the rating attractive and fair. The Scandinavian bookie sweetened the registration of your betting account with a first deposit bonus of 200% up to 100 euros ! This can really be seen in a sports betting bonus comparison with the competition, since a classic welcome bonus usually offers “only” 100% and therefore a doubling instead of a tripling of the deposit!
From a minimum amount of 10 euros to a maximum of 50 euros , your first deposit will be rewarded and tripled in total! So if you deposit 30 euros, for example, you can look forward to a 60 euros bonus money and a starting credit of 90 euros. The bonus credit is done automatically, a bonus code is not required. But that’s not all the good news. Because the specified sales conditions are also relatively easy to master. So it is sufficient if the bonus money received is used 6 times in sports betting . If you are aiming for the maximum bonus amount of 100 euros, you must place bets with a total value of 600 euros.
The minimum quota was set at extremely moderate 1.4 and is therefore significantly lower than that of many competitors. However, it should be noted that combination bets (neither from the pre-match nor from the live betting sector) do not contribute to the fulfillment of the bonus condition and are therefore to be avoided during the free spins phase. In addition, only bets will be considered that are evaluated before the 30 day period has expired. Accordingly, long-term bets are also on the index. The time window of 30 daysthe only hair in the soup I could find in the 200% welcome bonus from Unibet to meet the conditions. Overall, I am very impressed by the new customer bonus, as it is also very straightforward and provides comparatively easy framework conditions. Very customer friendly!
Finally, the important note that you are not entitled to the bonus if the first deposit is made via Skrill, Neteller or Paysafecard.
VIP & loyalty program
Unibet has not yet set up a VIP program for its betting customers. But the numerous bonus offers for existing customers offer plenty of variety, excitement and the prospect of additional profits. Unibet regularly offers new deals, so it is worthwhile to drop in under the menu item “Promotions”. Of course, you can also keep up to date with the latest bonuses and advertising campaigns by means of a newsletter.
At the time of my test, Unibet had 9 promotions in the quiver for the sports betting area alone . The variety ranged from free bets to quota boosters to various competitions or raffles for selected sporting events. A “Friends recruit friends” campaign (€ 40 bonus per new customer referred) is an integral part of the promotional palette. However, if you value a classic loyalty program, Unibet will unfortunately leave you empty-handed.
The betting offer on Unibet is very varied and the selection of sports and events in both width and depth is absolutely successful! As part of my Unibet test, I counted 30 sports . In addition to the top-selling, long-running favorites of football, tennis, basketball and ice hockey , the bookmaker also has numerous marginal sports and some exotic products up his sleeve. These include traditional British sports such as rugby (Rugby League, Rugby Union, Australian Rules), cricket, darts or snooker, but also sumo, surfing, chess, floorball or futsal.
Impressive betting depth in football
The supreme discipline football naturally also plays the absolute main role in the betting program at Unibet. In addition to all well-known tournaments at international and national level as well as the major leagues, there are also less-noticed championships at the start. Whether the Premier League from Uganda, the U19 Championship from Uruguay or the Emir Cup from Qatar! A complete offer, which in my experience comprises a total of 45 countries.
The betting depth in football is really impressive. But be careful: it happens that games from the amateur classes in particular are only added to the Sportsbook at short notice – usually about 24 hours before kick-off! If you want to place your bets early and want planning security, you can have problems here. The situation is similar in basketball at the BBL, where pairings are also only added shortly. I therefore recommend that you regularly search through the betting offer if you are unable to find a league you prefer or a specific game. Alternatively, it is worth contacting customer service. So I could find outthat some events are also recorded on request.
Up to 300 betting markets for top games!
Meanwhile, I am giving plenty of pluses for the selection of betting markets. Media-effective games from the top European leagues (Bundesliga, Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1) or Champions League are reliably accompanied in the pre-match area with 250 to over 300 betting options . It includes all common options such as 1X2 betting, various goal bets, handicaps, over / under betting, double chance or half-time betting – a complete offer. Bet Builder is also available in football . With this betting configurator you can combine up to 12 events (e.g. 1X2, correct result, total goals) for a game to your heart’s content on a betting slip into a single bet.
Otherwise, the number of betting markets goes hand in hand with the popularity of the games, leagues or sports. In the regional league, the variety of betting options in the pre-match range is between 10 and 20.
US sports strongly represented
The popular US sport is also very popular in the Unibet betting range . For games from the NFL (American Football), NBA (basketball), NHL (ice hockey) or MLB (baseball), 150 to over 200 betting markets – and thus significantly more than the majority of competitors – are not uncommon. Speaking of US sports: Unibet also has free NFL livestreams in its luggageWith long-term bets, betting customers also get their money’s worth. In the corresponding category “long-term (betting)”, for which there is a separate menu item for almost every sport, you can bet on the winners of various tournaments or championships. Or – at least in football – on the future top scorer or master king as well as on coach layoffs, player transfers and other special bets!
The E-Sport also is not too short for a modern Bookie as Unibet. You can place tips on big events of important, prominent games like Counter Strike, Dota 2 or League of Legends . Special bets on politics and the entertainment industry are also covered in detail. You can bet on all kinds of political election results, the next Oscar winner, the future James Bond actor or the winner of various reality TV formats. Boredom is guaranteed not to arise.
Not to be scoffed at is the virtual sports betting sector , which is also very well filled. Around the clock you can bet on the outcome of fictitious events in football, tennis, basketball, horse and dog races, which are of course streamed.
Deposits & withdrawals
Deposits to the Unibet betting account are quick and easy to make and absolutely secure ! Just click on “Deposit” in the top right. Or you select “Bank” in your account and then “Deposit”. Deposits are immediately credited to the account with the exception of bank transfer (2-3 days waiting time) and are free of charge . However, it can happen that fees are charged by the respective payment service provider.
Here are all available payment methods and the respective limits (minimum & maximum) that are available to you at Unibet for deposits. Remarkable: Unibet is one of the few betting providers with Apple Pay!

This is how the betting account at Unibet is verified
In order to be able to withdraw money from your betting account, you must be authorized at Unibet – within 30 days of creating your account. Otherwise the account will be blocked or can only be used to a limited extent! For verification, you will find a separate menu item in your customer account under the “Account data” tab with “Verify”, which will guide you through the KYC process. Very pleasant! The following documents are required for your identification check:
ID card, driver’s license or passport for proof of identity
Invoice from a provider (landline phone, gas, water, electricity) or insurance documents (e.g. pension insurance) not older than 6 months for proof of address
Digital photo of the credit card (front and back, cover CVV digits on the back) or corresponding proof of money transfer (e.g. account statement) with all relevant details for the payment method
The documents can be uploaded directly in the mask, with a wide variety of file formats (jpg, jpeg, png, bmp, tiff, doc, docx or pdf.) Supported with a maximum size of 10 MB. Unibet checks the documents within 48 hours , then the verification is usually successfully completed.
Small drawback: It took over a week instead of the 48 hours announced before I received the message that my Unibet customer account had been legitimated and payments were allowed! That didn’t matter much, but other betting portals are quicker to verify.
If you want to use Unibet for mobile betting, you have two options. Because in addition to the mobile version of the homepage , which can be used directly on the smartphone or tablet in the mobile browser, there is also a native app for download for iOS or Android . Both versions are particularly successful, but I recommend downloading the native app. Because this is specially designed for cell phone use, is very clear and razor sharp. Definitely an equivalent and full substitute for the desktop version.
Despite the smaller display, navigation is child’s play. Of course, all features can also be used on the go. The entire range of bets (both pre-match and live bets) was transported to the app. The real-time animations in the live console correspond to the desktop version, but come across almost better. The virtual playing field is at the top, including all available betting markets including odds. Placing a bet is also child’s play.
