As the new kid on the block in the online casino space in New Jersey, Unibet has quite a backstory. Dating back to the 1990s, the Unibet we know today was founded in Sweden by Anders Ström. In 1997, Ström sold his company for $325,000. All of this has culminated to Unibet being an online option for casino-goers in the Garden State.

Unibet currently offers two welcome packages for new customers—during the registration process and on first-time deposits. During the registration process, use the promo code UNIBET25 in order to receive a free $25 bet. No strings attached—just simply get $25 free to use on the casino.
When making your first deposit, also be sure to use the promo code 100UNIBET to receive a 100 percent match on deposited monies up to $500. In order to receive the match, you must complete a 20x (slots) or 100x (table games) wagering requirement. Meaning, if you deposit $100, to receive the full match, you must wager a total of at least $2,000 on the site to be able to withdraw the bonus funds.
The registration process for Unibet is safe and easy to accomplish. Like other online casinos, Unibet will ask for information such as email, password, your name, address, where you’re from and make you confirm you’re 21 years of age. During this process, you can also use the UNIBET25 code to receive the free $25 bet.
By offering PayPal for both deposit and withdrawal methods, this is a feature that may compel players to choose them over some of the competition. Here are the rest of the methods for each below.

The desktop version of the Unibet Casino lobby is laid out in a clear and efficient way. With little to no distractions, it is easy to stay focused on what you came here to do: play casino games.
As for mobile, Unibet currently offers a dedicated app for Android and states on their website that an iOS app is on the way. Just beware that due to Google Play’s policies against casino apps, you cannot directly download the app from their store. Unfortunately, real money games are not available through mobile web browsers.
There isn’t a lot of variety on Unibet. It’s limited in the overall game amounts.
As is with most casinos, there are varying levels of betting limits, depending on the style of game. What we often see with online casinos, though, are VIP rooms which allow for more potential bankroll to be spent. As of now, there isn’t anything of that sort with Unibet.
Outside of the welcome offer, Unibet has a revolving “Game of the Week”. This week, it’s Aladdin’s Legacy. In being the game of the week, if you wager a total of $100 on this game during the week it holds the title, you will receive a bonus $25.
Customer support seems rather shallow at the moment. In the bottom right of the screen, there is a support button. At first, it prompts for you to search your issue and use one of their FAQ’s. If you cannot find the answer, they do have a live chat link. There doesn’t appear to be any other means of customer support.
With advanced encryption software, geolocation technology and being a licensed casino in the state of New Jersey, there is nothing to worry about when it comes to the legitimacy of the site. Regulated by the New Jersey Gaming Division of Gaming Enforcement, Unibet, like all other casinos have guidelines and regulations they must follow. This is not an offshore casino.
Being a brand new casino, Unibet has a lot of great things going for it, highlighted by the PayPal implementation. However, they do have a rather sparse game catalog when comparing it to other industry leaders, especially in the New Jersey area. The live chat customer support is also a welcome feature, though adding more ways of contact could also be beneficial.
Unibet is a fun, “starter” casino for the time being during this soft launch. If you’re new to the online casino game and want to play either on the go on with your computer, Unibet has everything you’ll need as they continue to expand their catalog and feature new types of games to appease everyone.
