Whether you’re a new or experienced online casino player, Unibet has created a great atmosphere for new players during their soft launch period. Having experience in the industry for nearly three decades, Unibet’s growing brand should soon become a favorite for New Jersey gamblers.
Launching on September 10, 2019, Unibet, along with Kindred Group, added an online sportsbook to its portfolio, in addition to an online casino.
Unibet has been a prominent presence in the European market for multiple decades, but following PASPA being overturned, Unibet headed this way and linked up with Hard Rock as its brick-and-mortar counterpart.
Licensed and regulated in the state of New Jersey via the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, we’ll take some time to explore the product.
Unibet has its product on desktop, Android, iOS and on mobile web browsers.
At the top of the page, there is a search bar. This allows you to search through different sports and teams you may be interested in betting on. Near the search bar there is also links to go between the sportsbook, casino, a getting started page and a page to the current promotional offerings. To the left side of the screen, this is where the different sports are shown. As soon as you click on a sport, the different games for that respective sport populate in the middle of the screen with odds displayed for moneyline, spread and totals. There is also, at the bottom of the game selections, a drop-down menu where you can change how you want your odds to be displayed.
As you can continue down the page, you’ll notice that there is a direct link to the live chat support in the lower right-hand corner.
Moving on to the mobile app, there really isn’t much different here outside of the sports that are displayed on the left side are in a drop-down, collapsible menu in the upper left-hand corner of the app.
Unibet has a wide array of sports markets available including but not limited to:Sports
Unibet’s betting lines are definitely industry standard. Looking at top competitors such as DraftKings, FOX Bet and FanDuel, Unibet is essentially the same thing. There are no over-inflated odds at Unibet.
Unibet does offer Live Betting. This allows players to bet on games that are in progress. The odds do change rapidly as the game unfolds and will differ from the pregame odds. One tip we would offer if betting on games during commercial breaks. Unless there is an injury or something like that to a key player, the odds will usually be stabilized for a couple of minutes and you can wager that way. Again, though, if it’s a football game or a baseball game, the game can be changed very quickly with a long touchdown or a grand slam, so make your decision fast!
There is also a cash out option where you can abandon a bet prematurely if it is not going as originally intended. Simply go to the bet you have placed and there will be a cash out option. You can leave the bet, getting back a small percentage of your original money, but live to bet another day.
There is a risk-free bet up to $100. Meaning, you can deposit and wager any amount up to $100and if you lose, you will get your money back. If you win, this is a win-win proposition. Make sure to use promo code NJSPORTS250 to get this offer.
Risk-free bets are great for lesser-known entities and we approve of this bonus offer as sometimes new players may not want to make the commitment of putting their money into a sportsbook they are not familiar with. But with a risk-free bet, they have nothing to lose as they can either stay and play if they win, or take their money and run if they lose. It’s perfect.
No. Unless the sportsbook is licensed by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, it is illegal.
No. However, you must be in the confines of the state when making wagers.
