Unibet.co.uk Review

Unibet is not a rookie when it comes to online gambling. It was one of the driving forces of early online gaming, having started all the way back in 1997.

However, age is nothing but a number in our opinion. Sure, it tells us that the company is probably safe and legit. But is it worth getting the credit card out for Unibet? We’ve put the place through the paces – read our exclusive review below.

Casino

The casino at Unibet is fully stacked. It’s got pretty much every game you could ever want, being powered by some of the top gaming providers on the market. You’ve got your Monopoly Plus, ThunderStruck II, Starburst, Spartacus and the classic Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

Overall, we were very impressed with the selection. We usually find that casinos will offer some of our preferred games; having to mix and match between reputable sites to get everything we want. However, Unibet have pretty much everything you need.

These are just a couple of the games we’ve been enjoying lately:

  • Foxin’ Wins: This is a relatively new title and there’s just something about it. We’re not sure whether we just a kick out of a fox being dressed in a suit or what.
  • 100 Pandas: Pandas seem to be a trending theme when it comes to online slots in the UK. We’ve always found 100 Pandas to be quite nice when it comes to solid wins, so we usually stick a tenner in there if we see it available.
  • Spartacus: Again, we’re massively into our classical themes here. Spartacus is a nice looking game with solid gameplay, well worth checking this one out!
  • Elvis the King Lives: He lives! Well, at least in this slot. It’s comparable to previous titles in the same genre, but it’s been given a nice graphical refresh and some cool new features we haven’t seen before.

New and On-going Offers

The signup bonuses aren’t the most generous we’ve seen, but they’re still quite juicy. You get a £25 deposit bonus in the sports department, as well as a £10 mobile risk-free bet.

In the casino, you get £200 worth of matched bets, which you can use on slots and at the tables. There are no free spins straight away, but they do run weekly offers where you can get 5-10 free spins completely free. For example, every Friday they run a free spins promotion on Starburst. Not too shabby!

Unibet also places a lot of emphasis on doing themed promotions during the holidays. For example, during Christmas they run an advent calendar with 24 days of promotions. These include cashback offers, free spins, matched bets and entries into prize draws. We’re pretty sure most people will make some money out of these promotions.

We were also lucky to be one of the 50 players who received £5 on a random Wednesday when we signed into our account. It turns out that they do what’s known as a “Wednesday Cash-Drop”, where anyone who logs in after 7pm has a chance of winning a free fiver. We’re not going to say no to that!

Those are just a few of the on-going offers they have on the go, so check out their website to see more. They refresh them every once in a while as well, so don’t hold us to the ones we’ve just mentioned. If they’re no longer there, they’re usually replaced with equivalents that offer just as much value (if not more, depending on when you log in).

Customer Service

You can be in business for such a long time without having quality customer service available. Unitbet is available via email, chat and a Freephone number (from the UK anyway).

Chat and email are both available 24/7/365, whereas phone staff operate between 0900 and 2100 GMT. All staff members we’ve come across are well trained, friendly and always willing to come up with a solution to our questions and issues.

Unibet is a truly global company, which means that it has support that speak quite a good number of languages. So if English isn’t your thing, you can always email or chat in Swedish, Finnish, Russian or even Lithuanian.

Deposits and Withdrawals

Not only does Unibet accept a wide range of currencies, it’s also very good in working with all sorts of different deposit methods. Other than your usual credit and debit cards, you can also use Paysafecard, Ukash, Skrill (Moneybookers) and Neteller. Prefer to do a bank transfer? That’s also possible.

Withdrawals are quick and free of charge, so you can have your winnings in your account in a jiffy. You will have to withdraw in the same way you deposited, which we like. It’s a clear sign that the company takes fraud seriously.

Restricted Countries

Unfortunately, Unibet has taken itself out of the market in the following countries:

  • United States
  • China
  • Spain
  • Turkey

Company Information

As we mentioned in the introduction of this review, Unibet has been in the business for a long time – the first website was launched all the way back in 1997. In terms of Internet years, the place is old. It’s actually owned by a Swedish parent firm, though it’s had a UK licence to operate since 1998.

It’s served over 8.2 million (!) customers in over 150 countries since it started, which is just a ridiculous amount of players. We had to do a double take when we read that statistic. It suffices to say that Unitbet has plenty of experience in the industry.

Can You Trust Unibet?

In a word, yes. Not only has it been in the game for a long time, but it also has all of the necessary credentials that you’re looking for.

It’s part of EGBA (European Gaming and Betting Association) and RGA (Remote Gambling Association) in the UK – so you can be quite confident that you’re very well protected. It’s also certified by eCOGRA, which guarantees that all games actually give decent returns.
