Unibet are one of the biggest names in sports betting, and have been almost since they were founded twenty years ago. That longevity is a good sign that Unibet are onto a winning formula, and now the company is trying out this new thing called ‘esports betting’. Will their long history translate into a good betting experience for esports fans? We’ve evaluated their site to answer that very question. Show more.
One clear advantage to betting at Unibet is that there are so many ways to bet. You can log onto the site from your desktop PC or laptop, or download apps for iOS and Android. The site also has a decent mobile version that allows you to bet without downloading an app.
The website is fairly inelegant compared to more focused esports betting sites, but given its sheer scale this is understandable. As well as esports and sports betting, there’s also a casino, a live casino, bingo, poker and other games — no matter what your vice, you’ll find it well represented at Unibet!
The complexity of the Unibet site makes it a little hard to find esports betting — you’ll need to click the Sports link at the top, then click on the A-Z icon in the upper left corner of the screen to bring up the sidebar. From here, you can select ‘e-sports’, moving immediately to upcoming and in-play matches. You can also click ‘Browse e-sports’ to choose leagues or tournaments from the three games currently supported: Counter-Strike, Dota 2 and League of Legends.
As well as choosing the winner of the match, you can also enjoy handicap betting. Finally, there are some proposition bets available as well, e.g. the number of rounds that will be played (including Overtime, of course) in a Counter-Strike match. The coverage here is good if not outstanding, but all of the major competitions in these three games should be included. Live betting is also possible, which is nice.
As you’d expect from an established name, Unibet offer a wide range of support options, open 24/7. You can contact them by phone at 0800 329 393, email them at [email protected] or use their live chat service. The average response times are one minute, twenty-four hours and 45 seconds, respectively, so live chat is probably your best bet.
You can also ask questions of their community, giving you a chance to get member-to-member advice and assistance. To see all of these options, just click the Contact us link at the very bottom-centre of the screen.
Unibet is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, which should give confidence to bettors that they are a reputable organisation (if the success that the company has enjoyed in the twenty years since its founding aren’t enough!).
Withdrawals are processed reasonably quickly, although not as fast as some more modern (especially Bitcoin-only) esports betting sites. Withdrawals to e-wallet accounts such as Neteller or Skrill should happen in less than twelve hours, while bank transfers can taking one to three working days. Longer still are credit or debit card withdrawals, which may take as long as three to five working days. No withdrawal fees are charged. Show less.
One of Unibet’s strengths are the generous welcome offers and other bonuses that they offer, including a £30 money back offer if your first bet loses. Here are the best promotions we’ve found so far, updated with the latest changes.
