Our Unibet Review 2020
Unibet Canada Review - Scam or Legit? GamblingGuy Tests 2020
Unibet has established itself as a leading gambling platform with over 10 million customers in more than 100 countries, Canada being one of them. With the launching of its first website in 1999, Unibet has since broadened its horizons. It not only offers sports betting, but also hundreds of slots and table games. A Live Casino, poker tournaments, bingo and more are also on offer.
Licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority, its parent company, Kindred Group is listed on the Stockholm (Nasdaq) Stock Exchange. Suffice it to say, it can be ruled out in our Unibet review Canada that without question, it is not a fraud or a scam in any shape or form.
In our Unibet review Canada, we’ll take a look at what this operator has to offer.
Unibet: Pros & Cons
- One-stop-shop for sports betting, slots, live casino and more.
- Casino has over 700 games on offer.
- Mobile Compatibility, instant-play and downloadable client.
- Daily and weekly promotions and tournaments across the board.
- Quebec residents are restricted and can't use Unibet.
Promotions are part and parcel of any upstanding gambling site, though they vary from one operator to another. When it comes to welcome bonuses, you’ll usually find these in abundance with an offer catering for each main category.
This, too, is the case with Unibet. In our Unibet review Canada, we found a 100% Matched Deposit Bonus of up to C$100 for the casino lovers, bingo players and sports fans. While poker fans can enjoy C$30 in poker tickets and a C$1,000 Play-through Bonus is also up for grabs.
What’s more, Unibet Canada reviews and changes its promotions regularly. From progressive jackpots, weekly reload bonuses, slot tournaments, freerolls, poker tournaments, raffles, a ‘Refer a Friend Bonus’ and more.
There’s something exciting for everyone. You can find what’s available under the ‘Promotions’ tab on Unibet Canada’s homepage. This Unibet review Canada advises that you familiarise yourself with the T’s and C’s.
Next, our Unibet review Canada took a look at the usability of the website. Unibet provides a platform that’s clear-cut and simple to navigate. It comes in one of twelve languages, including French, Spanish, Italian, German, and Greek.
With its classical green and white theme, you can easily toggle between major categories of the site. These are listed at the top of the homepage and include sports, casino, live casino, games, bingo, poker, apps, and promotions.
For each, you’ll find sub-categories highlighting the most important aspects. Additionally, the latest promos, tournaments, jackpots or upcoming events are displayed on the right. So you’ll never miss a thing.
It’s also worth mentioning in our Unibet review Canada that you can find Guides on a range of subjects, including sports betting, casino, bingo, and poker. There’s also a ‘Get Help’ section, which includes a community forum, FAQs, guides, and more.
This Unibet review Canada would like to remind you that Unibet’s apps are all restricted in Canada, except for the poker app. This shouldn’t be too much cause for concern, though, because the website is fully optimised for mobile devices.
Making deposits and withdrawals should be painless and efficient. Unibet Canada recognises this fact and offers enough payment methods for Canadian players. For this part of our Unibet review Canada, we took a look at the payment options available.
Choose from Neteller, Skrill, ecoPayz, Trustly, Paysafecard, Visa, Visa Electron, MasterCard and Maestro, or a Bank Transfer. Interac Online and Interac e-transfer have also recently been added to the list.
This Unibet review Canada found that you can use most of the options outlined above to make deposits and withdrawals. Be sure to have an alternative method in mind to withdraw your winnings at a later stage, though, if you choose a method that doesn’t support both.
On average, you can expect withdrawal times to range between 2 to 5 days, with transfers to cards and banks taking the longest, and e-wallets being a lot quicker. With this in mind, our Unibet review Canada recommends using Interac, as it’s already been established as a favourite among Canadian users for convenience and efficacy.
No Unibet review Canada is complete without looking at Customer Service. Unibet Canada has a section devoted to helping players resolve any queries. Simply click on the ‘Get Help’ link at the top of the page, and you’ll be taken to Unibet Canada’s Help Centre.
Here, you’ll find a search bar to see whether there’s an answer to your question. Otherwise, you can browse popular FAQs displayed on the right-hand side or read through one of the topics listed.
These include announcements for promotions, deposits, and withdrawals, responsible gambling, as well as sports betting, horse racing, casino, bingo, and poker. Once you’ve selected the relevant topic, you’ll find FAQs, troubleshooting, and more.
You can also contact Unibet Canada directly via a live chat or email button. The only slightly small drawback is that there isn’t a phone number to speak to support staff.
Though this shouldn’t present too much of an issue, given that Unibet Canada’s support team is available around the clock, 24/7, to assist you in any one of twelve languages via email or live chat. Moreover, VIP Players have their own support team at their beck and call when it comes to needing assistance.
It’s now time for our Unibet review Canada to see how the website fairs in terms of licensing. Unibet Canada holds a license from the Malta Gaming Authority, and is subject to stringent regulations – so you’ll have peace of mind when gambling here.
Furthermore, Unibet Canada uses state-of-the-art 256-bit SSL encryption software, verified and provided by SecureTrust, as well as an Intrusion Detection System that operates 24/7. Essentially, this means that your personal and financial information are perfectly safe when using Unibet Canada.
Another notable aspect is Unibet Canada’s eCogra certification, which means that it’s independently audited and regulated according to international standards. Unibet Ltd is also a member of various Responsible Gambling institutions, such as the International Betting Integrity Association, Gambling Therapy, GamCare, Protect Integrity, RGA, and EGBA.
Finally, this Unibet review Canada found that Unibet holds multiple International Gaming Awards, e-Gaming Review Awards and iGB Affiliate Awards.
In this section of our Unibet review Canada, we’ll take a look at the Loyalty Programme and Rewards offered by Unibet Canada. Interestingly, for such a renowned brand, Unibet Canada seems to be somewhat lacking when it comes to loyalty rewards.
If you tend to stick to slots, sports betting, and the Live Casino, then you might be disappointed because there’s currently no Loyalty Programme available for you.
On the other hand, if you’re more of a Bingo player, you’ll be rewarded with a spin on the ‘Loyalty Wheel’ once you’ve filled up your Loyalty Meter by playing side games. Every spin is a guaranteed win, which increases in value the higher up on the ladder you go.
If you’re a poker player, you’ll get bonus points for minor and major challenges that you complete. You’ll also get free cash, play-through bonuses, poker tickets, and more while VIP Players have access to their own customer support team, exclusive events, and higher rewards.
Luckily, all’s not lost because Unibet Canada has quite an extensive assortment of promo offers, as we mentioned previously. You can head on over to the Promotions tab, to see what’s currently on offer.
For this next part of our Unibet review Canada, we look at the Unibet Canada Casino, which is powered by some of the biggest names in the industry. You can expect to find games from Yggdrasil, N.Y.X. Interactive, NetEntertainment, Micro Gaming, and Gaming Tech Solutions.
Popular titles from these providers include Mega Moolah, Guns ‘n Roses, Twin Spin, Reel Rush, Book of Dead, Piggy Riches, Attila the Hun, Joker Millions, Gonzo’s Quest, Immortal Romance, Vikings Go Berzerk, Roulette, Casino Hold ‘Em, Blackjack Switch, Casino Dice, Bingo, Keno, Craps – to name a few.
In our Unibet review Canada, we were delighted with the variety of games totalling around 750. You can find your favourite slot with categories from classic to action. Progressive jackpots, slot tournaments, and a lovely range of table, live, arcade, and scratch card games cover every type of gambler’s need at Unibet Canada.
Slots like Starburst, Sticky Joker, Rainbow Jackpots, Reel King, Divine Fortune, Temple Stacks, Riches of Robin, Temple Tumble, Mega Masks, Vikings, Narcos, Game of Thrones, Tomb Raider, and Jurassic Park are just some of the trending games.
Other hot slots and jackpots include TempleTumble Megaways, Heroes Hunt Megaways, Atlantean Treasures, Fruit Bonanza, Mega Millions, Bingo the Kid, Slingo Advance, and Puss n Boots as well as table and live games like Monopoly Live, Premier Roulette, Football Studio, Lightning Roulette, 3-Hand Casino Hold ‘Em, Baccarat, and Caribbean Stud Poker.
Unibet Canada even has an entire Bingo section, complete with mini-games and tournaments.
Unibet Canada’s twenty and counting live casino games on offer include sought-after favourites like Perfect Black Jack, Money Wheel, Ultimate Roulette, Three Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em, Baccarat and Super Sic Bo.
At Unibet Canada, there’s something for everyone with limits ranging from C$0.20 in the minimum to C$300,000 in the maximum. For example, Caribbean Stud Poker has a lowest bet of C$1 and a maximum of C$1,000, while Lightning Roulette has a minimum of C$0.20 and a maximum of C$200,000.
In our Unibet review Canada, we were impressed with the selection of top-notch slots, games, table games, and live casino games. Though the Poker variations were a bit low for the Live Casino, we suspect that’s because the Poker Section is much more popular and focuses mainly on video poker.
Unibet Sports Betting
We reviewed Unibet Canada’s betting markets, concluding that there are normally around 30,000 bets to choose from. These include a wide array of international and local sports, including Basketball, Hockey, Horse Racing, Tennis, UFC, Soccer, Rugby, and eSports.
If you prefer more niche betting markets, Unibet Canada also caters for Darts, Chess, Volleyball, Surfing, and even TV and Politics. Virtual sports like Football, Basketball, and Tennis tend to be popular too.
Naturally, Unibet Canada covers major leagues like the CFL, NFL, MBL, US Open, and the EPL, among others with a fantastic variety of bets including money line, point spreads, accumulators, totals, and Asian Handicapping.
Whatever sports you enjoy, you’re almost certain to find them at Unibet Canada. On top of that, Unibet Canada has some great Betting Guides for beginners, tennis, NFL, MBL, NBA, NHL, soccer, and golf.
Unibet has been around for over twenty years, so it’s no surprise that this Unibet review Canada found that it has competitive odds. A good example of this is the typically lower margin in tennis and football markets, coming in at less than 4% – which is below the industry average. This means that you’ll get more bang for your buck because Unibet takes a smaller cut.
At the time of writing this Unibet review Canada, we compared odds on an upcoming Basketball Game in the Chinese Taipei Super Basketball League, for a MoneyLine Bet. The odds for the game between the Taiwan Beers and Yulon Dinos were as follows: Unibet Canada (-240; +162), William Hill (-250; +175), Bet365 (-260; +185), and Spin Sports (-250; +165).
As you can see, the implied probability stayed within a 2% margin compared to other top-rated sportsbooks. Overall, Unibet Canada’s odds are pretty cutthroat when compared to other leading sportsbooks and can be viewed in either American, Decimal, or Fractional format.
Live betting & streaming
Live or In-Play betting and streaming has become increasingly popular as more and more punters look for this feature in a sportsbook. Fortunately, our Unibet review Canada was not disappointed to find that the sportabook doesn’t disappoint.
Unibet Canada offers over 30,000 events live-streamed, so you’ll always have the opportunity to place that bet. Make use of Unibet Canada’s Statistics and Livescore, powered by Sportradar, to help you determine the right bet to place.
Upcoming and live events are conveniently displayed with odds that are updated in real-time, so you’ll never miss a beat. Over and above that, you can use the Bet Builder to build your perfect combination of bets.
Our Unibet review Canada found that the sportsbook has a minimum bet limit of C$0.10 with maximum limits varying from sport to sport. Whether you’re exceptionally new to sports betting, or a seasoned pro, you can place a range of bets to suit your pocket.
Payouts are in the region of C$1 Million for some sports like football and horse racing, and between C$500,000 and C$250,000 for others like tennis, rugby and golf. Less popular sports will generally have lower payouts.
While compiling this Unibet review Canada, our experts determined that Unibet Canada has a remarkable amount of betting markets with a vast selection of bets for just about anyone. It also boasts above average odds, thereby competing with other leading sportsbooks.
Moreover, it offers live betting and streaming, as well as in-depth statistics and live scores – all easily accessible from your desktop or mobile device. New and veteran punters alike are spoilt for choice at Unibet Canada Sports.
Unibet Poker is powered by Relax Gaming, an award-winning developer and one of the most well-known poker networks in the world with over 10 000 players. With HTML5 software, it prevents tracking apps and uses a random-seating feature to ensure a level playing field.
In fact, Unibet Poker was created for the more casual players as opposed to the aggressive grinders synonymous with the industry. Its sleek, fun, and intuitive client can be accessed either per download, instant play, or via the mobile app.
Although Unibet Poker primarily offers games like Texas Hold ‘Em, Omaha, Banzai, and 5 and 7 card draws, you’ll have more than enough to keep you busy. Whether playing cash game challenges, and various tournaments where you can collect Challenge Points, you’ll find something to suit your preference.
At Unibet Poker, there’s never a dull moment with satellite tournaments for the coveted Unibet Open, Unibet Online Series, Hexapro, daily freerolls, freezeouts, prize pools, daily bounty tournaments, as well as Pot Limit Omaha and multi-buy ins. Even though Unibet Poker doesn’t have any Rakeback incentives, the various daily promos and challenges will keep you on your toes with the potential of making some extra cash too.
At Unibet Poker, we found the lowest buy-in to be around C$0.20 with a maximum buy-in of C$9, others with a minimum of C$10 and a maximum of C$25, and, finally, the highest with a minimum of C$26 and a varied maximum. For example, the Unibet Online Series has a guaranteed prize pool of C$1,000,000 while the weekly Super Double Trouble tournament has a modest C$4,000 prize pool.
Unibet Poker, with its award-winning Poker Client that’s incredibly smooth and simple to use on your PC, tablet or phone, is geared towards the more recreational players with a limited amount of Poker games. Having said that, even poker veterans will have a blast with daily, weekly and monthly tournaments, challenges, and offers.
That brings us to the end of our Unibet review Canada. Unibet Canada has emerged as a strong contender in all spheres of online gambling. Originally based in Europe, it has grown from strength to strength. It now competes with the biggest names in the industry, not only in Canada but in other parts of the world too.
It boasts plenty of promotions and offers, mobile compatibility, and a spectacular variety across the board. Its simplistic design houses sports betting with numerous markets, fairly competitive odds, and in-play betting and live streaming.
Similarly, the casino lobby is packed with hundreds of slots and progressive jackpots. You’ll also find various table, arcade, bingo, and live casino games. It also has a Poker Client with exciting challenges and several different tournaments.
The only thing we found disappointing while compiling this Unibet review Canada, was the lack of a robust Loyalty Programme and perhaps the variety of Poker games. Other than that, though, Unibet Canada brings its best to the table.
