With Ontario sports betting leading the way in Canada with its regulation of the online betting market on April 4, 2022, players have some great options regarding where they can sign up. The Kindred Group, the partner of Unibet, has confirmed it has received a license from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission Ontario (AGCO). It has now officially launched the Unibet brand in the province. In this review, we look at what Unibet Ontario can offer players by looking at its betting markets, sportsbook features, and payment options.
All information about special features, if any, can be found directly on the operators website.
Unibet Ontario may need you to further verify your identity, which might include asking players to upload copies of documents, including a picture ID, proof of address and proof of payment method. This process is normally completed in 48 hours but often will be completed much quicker. You only need to verify your account once to have full access to the Unibet sportsbook.
Once you have registered your Unibet Canada account at the online sportsbook, it will be time to place your first deposit.
International sportsbooks are available to players in Canada, and players can access these sites and place legal sports bets, including NFL sports betting. However, these sites are not regulated and have no obligation to provide fair payouts or security to customers. Be sure to check the licensing information of an international sportsbook.
Canada’s own regulated sports betting market started in 2021 when single-game bets were legalized with government-led sportsbooks. With the passing of C-218 amending the criminal code, single-game betting is accessible on a province-by-province decision.
Ontario is the first Canadian province planning to regulate online sports betting. As of April 4, 2022, any betting site operating in the province will need a license from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission Ontario.
Unibet Canada has lots of payment options for players successful with their sports betting. To make a withdrawal, you need a minimum of $10 in your account. Unibet excels with e-wallets, offering some of the biggest brands in the world in Neteller, Skrill, and PayPal. There are also the banking options that most Canadian sportsbooks offer like Visa, Mastercard, and bank transfers.
Not all deposit methods are available options for withdrawal. If this is the case with your method, you will have to add a new payment option to withdraw your money. The withdrawal speed of most payment methods is 3-5 days. Options like PayPal can be processed quicker, whereas bank transfers may take the full five days.
The Unibet sportsbook app is one of the best mobile apps worldwide, with different versions of the app available in different regions. You can download this from the iOS and Android app stores, and the Google Play Store reviews, all being above four out of five stars, shows how good this app is.
There is a very similar layout and feel to the app compared with the Unibet website, making it easy to use. Players can live stream games straight from the app, and this works well thanks to the fast speeds the mobile app offers. You can use the Unibet mobile browser site if you don’t want to download the app, which will work on any sized device thanks to its HTML5 technology.
Customer service at Unibet is available 08:00-23:00 ET, seven days per week, through multiple communication methods. You can get in touch using live chat, telephone, or sending an email. An FAQ section also provides answers to issues when customer support is not available.
Some customers have reported issues with getting in touch with Unibet support staff, but most players agree that staff were friendly and accommodating once they were connected.
The Unibet sportsbook was established in 1997 and is partnered with the trustworthy Kindred Group. The betting site has a solid public reputation, thanks to the many awards it has won over the years. These include picking up the PCM magazine award for “eGaming Overview” as the best sports betting operator multiple times. With so many legal betting sites in Canada, we can truly say that Unibet will find its way all the to the top.
