Unique about the Bookie
Every week Unibet offers a special accumulator called the ‘Supertoto’ which gives customers the chance to win up to €25,000. The site displays a list of matches (normally up to 14) and then punters can choose as many as they wish. Punters can even choose multiple outcomes for one match; however, this will raise the price of the coupon.
The site also offers the ‘Superscore’ where punters have to predict the correct final score for three matches. There is a guaranteed minimum prize of €1,000 for getting all three correct.
Another nice section of the site is the ‘Armchair Experts’, here a number of famous retired sportsmen write blogs and provide betting tips in their respective sports.
Unibet provides customer support in a number of languages. You can contact them via live chat, email or telephone. Their email service can be slightly slow, but the live chat and telephone support options are extremely fast and efficient. Additionally, there is an excellent FAQ section on the website which covers all the common, and some less common, queries.
Unibet customer support is available in the following languages: English, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, Danish, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Turkish, Greek, Romanian, Croatian, German, Italian, French, Belgian, Czech, Polish, Russian, Estonian, Hungarian, Latvian and Lithuanian.
Deposits and Withdrawals
As a European bookmaker it isn’t surprising that Unibet accepts a number of currencies including: US Dollar, Euro, UK Pound Sterling, Canadian Dollar, Danish Krone, Norwegian Kroner, Swedish Krona, Polish Zloty, Swiss Franc, Czech Koruna, Hungarian Forint, Croatian Kuna and Estonian Kroon.
The site will accept deposits from all major credit and debit cards (Visa, Maestro, MasterCard, Electron, Laser). Additionally a number of ePayment methods are accepted including Neteller, Skrill, Paysafecard and Ukash. All card deposits are instant; however, there is a 2.5% fee for each transaction.
While withdrawal methods are slightly more limited (bank account, credit card, Neteller and Skrill), all withdrawals are free of charge and normally processed very quickly.
Overall Recommended Bookies believes Unibet to be an excellent bookmaker for the European punter. They cover an excellent range of sports and have a good selection of betting markets. Most impressive is their live streaming and in-play betting service which is almost unrivalled.
While there is a small fee for making deposits, this is a small price to pay for a bookmaker which is completely reliable, properly regulated and extremely well run.
