The Unibet we know and gamble with today has some very humble beginnings. Founded in Sweden by Anders Ström in the early 1990s, Unibet was eventually sold later that decade, in 1997, for $325,000.
Part of the Kindred Group, Unibet is officially in the middle of their soft launch period with their online casino here in the states, taking on the casino-filled battleground that is New Jersey. How have they done so far, fresh out of the gate?
Unibet Casino and Welcome Bonus Details
- Fresh and new website to utilize
- Simple, yet attractive interface
- Solid start for a soft launch
Over at Unibet, new customers will get a two-for-the-price-of-one deal when they first sign up. By using the codes UNIBET25 and 100UNIBET at registration and on your first deposit, respectively, you will earn a $25 free bet as well as a 100 percent match up to $500.
However, for you to take full advantage of the match and to be able to withdraw the money, you must bet 20x through when playing slots and 100x for table games. Meaning, if you deposit $200, you must wager at least a total of $4,000 before you’re able to withdraw the money from the bonus.
Registering with Unibet is fast and simple. At the top of the screen, there is a signup button. After providing details such as your name, email, creating a password, address (location purposes), and a promo code, you’re well on your way.

For a soft launch, Unibet has come out with a basic, yet appealing interface for their desktop version of the platform. With a slideshow of varying different ads, coupled with different menus across the top of the screen, Unibet has all of the games they have available right there and able for you to sort. And the bottom right of the screen, there is a support button where you can search for an issue and if a FAQ doesn’t answer it, there is a live chat option.
For mobile, Unibet is still working on an iOS app, but they do list instructions for how to download it on Android. Due to Google Play’s policies against casino apps, you cannot directly download from their store. On the app, there are fewer games available than the desktop version.
Unibet Casino Game Options and Features
There isn’t a wide variety of games offered, but again, this is a soft launch. They can elaborate from here.
- Table Games: Right now, Unibet has eight table games: American Roulette, Blackjack, Multihand Blackjack Pro, Singlehand Blackjack Pro, French Roulette, Roulette Advance, Roulette Master and Three Card Poker
- Slots: There are over200 slot games to choose from and are listed on their website. Some of the more popular ones include Divine Fortune and Aladdin’s Legacy.
Unibet Bonuses and Promotions
Apart from the welcome bonuses mentioned earlier on, loyal customers can avail of weekly offers at Unibet, too. Every week the casino selects a Game of the Week to add thrills to your Monday. At the time of writing, the selected slot game is NetEnt's Finn and the Swirly Spin. Wager a total of $100 on this slot by the end of the week to receive a $25 bonus.
Support and Banking
There is a support button in the bottom-right of the screen. You’re able to search your issue and a menu will populate with potential answers. If those don’t work, though, there is a live chat button and they are available 24/7. There is also email support and phone number customer support available from 9am-11pm ET Monday-Sunday.
As far banking, players can fund their Unibet account using the following methods:
- Cash cage
- Personal Bank Account
By implementing PayPal is one of their deposit and withdrawal options, Unibet will certainly see an uptick in clientele from this. For all casinos, PayPal should almost be mandatory as it is one of the easier methods of paying for things online.
With this being a soft launch, the overall verdict here is somewhat incomplete. With that said, Unibet has a welcoming atmosphere and may be a nice online casino to introduce a newcomer to the online casino space. From here, they will only expand their game library and improve other ancillary details.
