UniBet Review – How does it compare to other sportsbooks?
We’ve collected data from one of the largest sportsbooks in the United States, and in this review, we’ll see how UniBet is comparing itself to its counterparts. Our goal is to present you with an unbiased review of BetRivers based on actual tests. We’ll continuously keep gathering more data and updating these reviews to give you as accurate a picture as possible of the sportsbook.
How do UniBet odds compare to other sportsbooks?
We’ve gathered data from multiple sports events to give you more realistic expectations of how well UniBet odds compare to the rest of the sportsbooks. We’ve mainly looked at the money lines for the sports listed below, but our goal is to include many more variations of bets and sports as time passes by..
Sports we compared odds from:
- Soccer (premier league)
Time of comparison: May 2022
We sampled the odds from 10 different sportsbooks from the sports listed above and UniBet is in the upper half of that list, as far as the edge the house has. UniBet ranks 4th of the 10 sportsbooks, with a house edge of 4.32%. WynnBet is #3 at 4.04% while Caesars is 5th at 4.38%.
Their strongest sport is baseball, which has a house edge of 3.52% and that is only second to WynnBet’s 3.21% for baseball.
UnitBet could be ranked higher overall in terms of house edge given would it not be for the NBA as the average house edge in that sport is 4.99%, which is the worst of all the sportsbooks.
Yes, UniBet has low house edges overall, but they are prone to limiting bettors when they get on a hot streak.
We can’t confirm anything, but we get the impression that UniBet is an excellent choice for any small to medium bettors, and if you are a heavy bettor, you should seek a sportsbook that is kinder with limiting their players.
House edge: 4.32% – 4 of 10
Strength: lowest house edge baseball – 3.52%
Weakness: complaints about limiting bettors.
We want to emphasize that our conclusions are only based on our samples and do not cover every sports or betting type (yet).
Our mission is to continuously run more samples and compare them to all the available US sportsbooks so our users will get as much of a realistic overview of anyone’s odds selection as possible.
Has all the major sports, but they are missing a few outliers like handball, lacrosse, snooker, table tennis, entertainment, and softball. In all, Unibet has 18 different sports to bet on and we feel that gives a bettor plenty of options to make some cold hard cash.
Unibet has one of the smaller welcome offers out there in the $250 risk free version. The terms are decent enough, but we can find many better offers out there.
However, this is a cash bonus, not a free bet, as most sportsbooks offer. Therefore, this bonus comes with its pros & cons, which we’ll be covering below.
– What events can you bet on?
– Is it for a single event or split between multiple?
It can be multiple bets.
– What are the minimal odds?
Minimum odds of 1.33 (-300).
– What are the wagering requirements?
– What is the minimum deposit?
– What is the maximum winning amount?
There is no cap.
– How long until the bonus expires after signing up?
Must be activated within 7 days of registration
– How long until the bonus expires after the first deposit?
7 days until expiration
– If you win, can you withdraw the winnings right away?
Can withdraw bonus and/or winnings after playthrough
How does the bonus work?
A Player’s first cash bet of a minimum of $10 on any sports market will be eligible. If this bet loses, players will be refunded equal to their losing wager in cash (up to $250) within 72 hours. Most other sportsbooks refund within 24 hours. If their first cash bet wins, the risk-free offer is considered complete and you will not receive a refund.
There is no cap to either how many sports events you can bet on or what sports category the events belongs to, so this provides you with a good range of freedom.
A bettor has just 7 days from registration to use their risk-free bet, and that is consistent with most other sportsbooks. Be aware you can only place bets with a minimum odds of 1.33 (-300), so betting on the favorites is not always the best option.
Keep in mind to always read their terms and conditions, as there are always a few strict rules that are easy to miss, and there is a chance they might get updated without us knowing, so there is always a good rule of thumb to double-check it on their website, even when you’re reading our reviews.
How does their sign-up bonus compare to other sportsbook bonuses?
Since most sportsbooks’ bonuses are free bets, not cash bonuses like this one, the comparison will be slightly trickier. Either way, we’ll break these down into components and present you with enough data to provide a holistic view of the bonus’s strengths and drawbacks.
The bonus amount is where UniBet gets placed on the lower end. The avg bonus you’ll find is $1,000, and as of now, PointsBet offers a risk-free bonus of up to $2,000.
1xb wagering is a low wagering amount, especially for a cash bonus.
Right now, all free bets have the same wagering of 1xb, so it’s not unusual seeing this. However, if we compare this to the only other cash bonus available by DraftKing, which is 20% up to $1,000. Their wagering of 25x makes us appreciate UniBet’s 1xb wager even more.
The avg min odds on the market is either 1.0 or 1.33. UniBet’s min odds of 1.33 is the second-lowest out there.
UniBet’s expiration date is on the low end of the totem pole and well below DraftKing’s cash bonus, which has a 90-day expiration date.
The $250 bonus is not the greatest, especially compared to Draft Kings, which has a $2,000 cash bonus. The Minimum odds of 1.33 are solid and having few restrictions on what it can be used for is a plus as well.
The drawbacks are that you have just 7 days to use your free bet and if it loses, it takes up to 72 hours to be reimbursed for the bet.
It’s not the greatest bonus and they are clearly others out there that are more enticing.
UniBet does not have many great Promotions. Most of them are just parlay boosts, or for the casino, so this is an area that they do not shine at.
Example promotion structure:
NHL Single Game Parlay Boost – 25%
Place a 3+ legged Single Game Parlay at +300 odds or higher (+400, +450, etc.) on any NHL playoff game and receive a 25% profit boost on your Single Game Parlay.
Max bet: $25.
Max winnings: $250
Min odds: +300

We could not find a rewards/ Loyalty program for UniBet.

UniBet offers a great variety of deposit options, including Visa/ Mastercard, Paypal, eCheck, Online Banking, Skrill, Neteller, WebMoney and EcoPayz and PayNearMe. However, they do not have AMEX, and wire transfer, but those two aren’t as popular.
Bank transfers can take 1-3 days, but the other methods are instant.
UniBet has many of the usual withdrawal options, including Mastercard and Visa, Skrill, Neteller, WebMoney and EcoPayz, Trustly and Direct Deposit, Bank Transfer and PayPal.
The quickest way to get your money back is by eWallet (Skrill, Neteller, WebMoney and EcoPayz), which will take just 12 hours or less.
UniBet is solid in the Odds department as they rank 4th out of the 10 sportsbooks we have gathered info on. Their biggest strength is baseball odds as they have the lowest of the 10 sportsbooks. UniBet also has good options for deposit and withdrawal, plus their support section is very good.
Now for the bad news about UniBet. Their sign-up bonus is one of the weaker out there, they don’t have many good promotions, no loyalty Program, and they will limit bettors that are on a hot streak. We also note that it does take around three days to get payoputs from most of their options.
All-in-all, Unibet does not have a high rating from us as there are much better overall options out there. Yes, the odds are good, but there are too many negatives to overcome that.
What we like
Best baseball odds, good support, and good options for withdrawal and deposit.
What we don’t like
Very few promotions, weak sign-up bonus, limiting hot players, no loyalty/rewards program.
