You must play the bonus money before withdrawing.

Bonus offers from Unibet in CO

Unibet sportsbook has extra bonus offers in the “Promos & Offers” section on its website.

This sportsbook offers a unique parlay boost. You must select a three-, four- or five-leg parlay with maximum odds of -500. For example, you can select a three-leg parlay with -450 odds or a five-leg parlay with +600 odds to be eligible.

You must then click “Bonus Offers” in the drop-down menu, selecting which boost you want. A three-leg parlay gets a 10% boost, a four-leg parlay gets a 20% boost and a five-leg parlay gets a 30% boost. You can redeem each of these boosts every week. Then you place your bet, which can be a maximum of $25.

Unibet has a refer-a-friend program. You can refer a friend using your personalized bonus code or invitation. Once your friend creates an account and deposits $25, you will receive $25 in bonus money. You can use this bonus offer for up to five total friends.

How to sign up

You can sign up at unibet.com or by using our exclusive link.

In the top right-hand corner of the screen, click register.

A box will pop up allowing you to choose your welcome offer for the sportsbook. You can also choose to reject the bonus offer. Below that, you can insert your promo code. As you scroll down, you will need to insert your email address, choose a password and confirm that password. You will also need to check a box to confirm your location and age, and agree to the terms and conditions.

Once you click continue, you will be taken to the second step of registration. The top will confirm your welcome offer. You must then select a prefix (Mr., Ms. or prefer not to say). You’ll then insert your first name, last name and middle initial (optional). You will have to select your birthday and provide your telephone number (no spaces). You will select one of four general security questions, answering it in the space below. Unibet asks for the last four digits of your Social Security number in this section. You’ll need to insert your address. In this section, you can start typing, and it will offer an auto-fill option.

Finally, there will be five boxes to check. The first you already agreed to in step one. The second simply confirms your information is true. The third is optional. It allows you to use two factors for a “strong authentication” when you log in. In other words, you would be required to use your password and a PIN that is emailed to you. The final two boxes are ways you’d like Unibet to send you promotional offers (email or SMS text). You do not need to click either box.

There is a short paragraph about gambling responsibly before you click submit.

How to download the Unibet app

Downloading the Unibet betting app is extremely easy from the website. On the main page, click the “Mobile App” tab. This will take you to the screen that has the Android and iPhone links to download.

For Android, click the green “Download the Android app here” link. There is a small set of directions to complete this process:

unibet app instructions

Unibet does not offer an app in the Google Play store. This app can only be downloaded from the website.

Below that is the Unibet app for Apple iPhones. Simply click the box featuring the Apple logo stating  “Download on the App Store.” This app is also available in Apple’s iTunes App Store.

Features on the site

Unibet offers all the necessary features from an online sportsbook. The majority of what is needed is located at the top of the site in the header.

In the top right-hand corner of the website, you’ll find the buttons for logging in and registering. If you’re new to Unibet, you will use the register button to create your account. If you’re a returning user, you simply click on the login button to log into your active account.

On the left side of the header, you’ll find a pair of tabs away from the other options. Here you will find a link to the sportsbook.

It offers a number of betting options on this page, ordered by start time. This page also features a search bar that allows you to search for any sport, league or team you’re looking to bet on. There is a sidebar that offers games that are starting soon, popular sports and a list of all sports.

There are four more tabs on the right side of the header: Mobile Apps, Promos & Offers, Get Started and Help & Info.

The Mobile Apps tab allows you to download the Android or iPhone apps directly from the website.

The Promos & Offers tab directs you to a page that features promotions, welcome offers, sports offers and updates.

Get Started is a tab that outlines the early process of creating and depositing in your sports betting account. This page features a section for the mobile apps and a step-by-step process for signing up, depositing and setting your limits to play.

As the name suggests, the Help & Info tab leads you to a page that offers ways to answer any questions you have. This includes Unibet’s Help Center, live chat, phone and email. Each of these is a great way to get help with any questions you have about your account or betting.

unibet navigation

There is a large banner featuring a welcome bonus below the header. This offer consists of $10 free and a $500 bonus on your deposit. This is a casino bonus, though. It is not eligible to be used on the sportsbook. Unibet does not offer casino gambling to Colorado residents.

The final section on the homepage consists of welcome and special offers. There are a pair of welcome offers, including a refer-a-friend or a sportsbook offer on the left side. The right side consists of two special offers: a blackjack tournament and a weekly casino deposit reload bonus. Again, these are not applicable to Colorado residents.

unibet homepage

The site is extremely easy to navigate, as the majority of what you need is located in the header. The login and registration buttons are located in the top right-hand corner of the site.

Once you’ve logged in, the “getting started” tabs are located on the right side of the header below where you logged in. This is where you’ll find the Mobile Apps, Promos & Offers, Get Started and Help & Info tabs.

On the left side of the header, you’ll find the sports tab. This takes you to the sportsbook. On the main screen of this page, Unibet will offer specific bets. On the left side of the page below sports is the sidebar menu. This is where you’ll find sports that are starting soon or popular. This sidebar also offers an all-sports option, allowing you to see how many bettor options are offered for each sport.

The remainder of the homepage is welcome and bonus offers. Essentially, everything you need on this page can be found in the header, including the page for promos and bonus offers.

How to use the app

The Unibet app is aesthetically unappealing, but easy to navigate because of its simplicity. Similar to the site, you’ll find everything you need in the header. In the top right-hand corner of the header, you’ll see the login and registration buttons.

In the top left-hand corner, you’ll see three lines indicating the sidebar menu. You’ll find the drop-down menu when you click the hamburger icon. The sidebar features the same options as the website, excluding the mobile app option (as you already have that). The available options are Sports, Promos & Offers, Get Started and Help & Info.

The majority of the sports page is available bets that are offered by Unibet. You can find more by clicking the sidebar menu in the black header. This opens a menu offering games starting soon, popular games and all sports. The number to the right of the sport indicates how many bets are available at the current time on that sport. Similarly to the website, the sports page also features a search bar.

The Promos & Offers, Get Started and Help & Info tabs are the same as the website, adapted to fit the screen of the phone. If you need an explanation of these, you can find it above.

Deposit/withdraw

Unibet offers a wide variety of options when depositing or withdrawing. The minimum deposit or withdrawal amount is $10. These methods are quick and easy and solidify your money is safe, as it transfers to and from your account.

Deposits

Depositing is simple on Unibet. Click the yellow deposit button in the top right-hand corner of the screen. If you have a bonus available, it will allow you to select it there. If not, choose your method of deposit and the amount of money you want to put into your account.

There are five ways to deposit money into your Unibet account:

  • Debit or credit cards
  • PayPal
  • ACH
  • Play+
  • PayNearMe

You can deposit to Unibet using either a debit or credit card. Unibet currently only accepts Visa and Mastercard. Some banks won’t allow you to transfer money from your card, so make sure you check that this is allowed with your bank before attempting to deposit.

You can transfer money from your PayPal account directly to your Unibet account. In this transfer, PayPal acts as a third party. This is a good alternative option if your bank doesn’t allow you to directly use your credit or debit card, as you can transfer money into your PayPal account then transfer it into your Unibet account.

ACH includes VIP Preferred e-check or an online bank transfer. VIP Preferred is an electronic check that uses the ACH network to transfer your funds. The bank transfer is an action where you’ll need to input your account and routing numbers to allow the transaction to go through.

Play+ is a prepaid card. This would give you a physical card that can be paid for through your credit or debit card or cash. You then use the Play+ card to deposit money into your Unibet account.

PayNearMe is a way to deposit cash into your account. You select the amount you want to deposit, and you will be given a pay slip. You then take this pay slip to your nearest participating location, such as a 7-Eleven, and pay cash at the register. Your money will then appear in your account.

Withdrawals

To withdraw, you select the logo next to the deposit for the sidebar menu. You then select “bank” and “withdraw money.” This will give you all of the options to withdraw.

There are five ways to withdraw money from your Unibet account:

  • PayPal
  • VIP Preferred
  • e-check Select
  • Check by mail
  • Unibet Play+

Betting options

Unibet features a plethora of betting options on the site or app. It offers each of the common bets, such as moneylines, spreads, totals (over/under), teasers and parlays.

It offers live betting or in-game wagers. This allows you to bet live during a game. Essentially, you can watch a full game, finding situations in which you want to bet on updated odds. For example, if you want to bet the Oakland Raiders and they are +3, but fall behind 7-0 on the scoreboard, you may be able to bet on them at +7 during the game. This type of bet often updates the spread, moneyline and total throughout the games.

Unibet has a futures betting section. This is an option to bet on future events to happen, often getting better odds. For example, prior to the season, you can check the odds on the the World Series and bet the Oakland A’s to win. These odds change throughout the season. The payouts are often significantly larger than single game bets.

Unibet offers a cash-out option. This allows you to cash out at any point in the game, but it must be prior to the game ending. This can be used to guarantee profit during the game or limit your losses if it was a bad bet. For example, if you bet $100 on the Golden State Warriors as +500 underdogs, and they are winning at halftime, you could cash out then for a profit. You would end up making less than the $500 you would’ve earned if they do in fact win the game, but you could still profit a few hundred depending on their chances of winning at that point.

The final betting option is prop bets. They are often called propositional or novelty bets. These are bets that don’t directly affect the outcome of the game. There are a number of prop bets that will be available at any point in time. For example, you can bet on whether Pete Alonso hits a home run, if Jacob deGrom records double-digit strikeouts or who will win the MVP during the MLB season. These prop bets aren’t specifically for one sport, as Unibet will offer prop bets for a number of its sporting options.

Legal stipulations

Unibet is owned by the Kindred Group. It is operated by Platinum Gaming Limited. You must be 21 years of age or older to gamble on the site or app.

Unibet is popular throughout Europe. It’s currently legal in Colorado, Pennsylvania and New Jersey in the United States, but it is expected to be legalized in more states soon.

You do not need to be a resident of a legal state to use this site or app. You must be physically located in the state at the time of logging on and betting, though, as it uses geolocation software to determine if you’re in a legal area or not.

Customer support

Unibet has plenty of ways to get in touch with customer service. On the website, click the “Help & Info” tab. This will take you to a page with four options.

First, you can click on “Help Center.” This takes you to a list of previously answered frequently asked questions. There are a number of questions answered in this section, including questions about your account, deposits and withdrawals, sports betting and more. This is a quick way to find the answer you’re looking for without having to communicate with anyone.

You can use Unibet’s “Live Chat” option. This will allow you to directly connect with one of Unibet’s support agents. Live chat is available from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern time seven days per week.

Unibet offers live help over the phone, as well. The number to contact is 1-877-286-5303. Phone service is available from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern time seven days a week, as well.

If you aren’t in a hurry, you can email customer support. This email is listed on the “Help & Info” page. This may take a bit longer for a response than a live chat.
