Unibet is a European-based gambling provider that has been providing online betting services for over 20 years. This sportsbook entered the New Jersey online betting market in September 2019, and while the name may not be as recognizable as the likes of FanDuel and DraftKings, this certainly isn’t a bookmaker to turn your nose up at. With a great range of sports, excellent bonuses and a top mobile app, Unibet provides an all round excellent betting experience.

Welcome Bonus

$20 in Free Bets & $250 Risk Free Bet

Unibet’s welcome offer is certainly an eye catching deal and one of the most attractive on the market. The first part of the offer rewards you two $10 free bets. The best part? There’s no deposit required! Simply sign up to claim your free bets and use them on any market you wish.

The second part of the bonus is activated when you make your first cash bet on any event. To qualify, the bet must be placed on a market with minimum odds of -115. If your bet loses, you’ll be refunded a bonus risk free bet equal to the value of your wager, up to $250. This is a nice way to kick off your Unibet experience by placing a potentially lucrative wager, with the safety net of a bonus bet if your hunch isn’t quite on the money.

Unibet offers markets on a wide range of different sports, including both professional and collegiate leagues. Whether you want to bet on the NFA, NBA, MLB, fancy a punt on a boxing match up or like the odds on a cycling event, you’re sure to find a market that interests you.

Promotions

There’s a good selection of promos at Unibet which, at the time of writing, includes a weekly parlay boost, daily odds boost and profit boost offers. The weekly parlay boost can increase your winnings by 10%, 20% or 30%, depending on how many legs you bet on, while the daily odds boost means there’s plenty of opportunities to take advantage of some favorable odds. The profit boost offer is usually for Saturday and Sunday night NFL games and can be used on both pre-match and in-play markets. This is a strong mix of promotions that suit fans of different sports and is one of the best features of Unibet sportsbook.


Design & Usability

Unibet forgoes any flashy graphics and goes for a fairly minimal design with a simple green and white colour scheme. The betting options are easily accessible on the left hand side of the desktop site, with a promotions tab at the top of the page allowing you to check out the available bonuses. You can also easily switch between the sportsbook and casino by clicking on the relevant tabs.

Unibet also has a mobile site that is also well laid out, easy to use and offers the full functionality of the desktop betting site. This is actually a big plus, as not all New Jersey sportsbooks offer a mobile site, so Unibet is a good option if you want to bet on your phone but prefer not to download a mobile app.

While the Unibet desktop and mobile site may suit players who prefer to keep things simple, they do feel a bit bare in terms of design and don’t look particularly exciting or engaging in the way other sportsbooks do.


App Review

You can download the Unibet app for free on both iOS and Android devices. The app offers all the functionality of the website and features the same simple design and layout, so it’s a great option if you’re looking for fast, convenient mobile betting with the added benefit of push notifications to keep you in the loop on new promos. iPhone users can download the Unibet app from the App Store, although if you have an Android you’ll need to visit the mobile website on your smartphone or tablet.


Cashier

Unibet offers a good selection of payment methods, including VISA, MasterCard, PayPal, PayNearMe, Play+, VIP Preferred and Mazooma. You can also deposit into your account via the cash cage at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City. The fact that it supports PayPal is a particular advantage as this is one of the quickest, easiest and most secure ways to deposit and withdraw at online betting sites, yet it isn’t available at all bookies.


Contact Details

Unibet has a helpful customer support service which is one hand if you’re ever in need of assistance. The sportsbook can be contacted by phone, email or live chat, with the live chat available 24/7.

Our Verdict

Overall, we think Unibet is an excellent option for New Jersey betters. It comes up trumps in nearly every regard – betting options, bonuses, banking methods, mobile performance. In all honesty, it’s hard to say anything bad about Unibet. If we had to say something against it, it’d be that it doesn’t really have any special or unique features that set it apart from the crowd, and the design is also fairly basic. But if you’re looking for a solid sportsbook that does all the basics right, then it is definitely worth checking out. Want to try Unibet out for yourself?
