Unibet Casino Review

After first launching in the United States in New Jersey, The Kindred Group and Unibet expanded into neighboring Pennsylvania with eyes on future expansion. Let’s take a look at the online casino and see how it stacks up.

Welcome Bonus

NJ: Unibet is a skin of Hard Rock Atlantic City and it launched in the Garden State in September 2019.

PA: Unibet is tethered to Mohegan Sun Pocono out of Wilkes-Barre, officially launching in mid-November 2019.

The welcome bonus at Unibet comes in two parts: One for simply signing up and the second is a deposit match.

  1. Signup offer: Players will get a free $10 for just registering for an account. However, to access these bonus funds, players must complete a 3x playthrough (30x on table games) to have access to those funds.
  2. Deposit match: Players will get a 100 percent deposit match up to $500. Money-wise, this is fantastic, however, the playthrough is at 40x (400x on table games). Again, this is great money, but the playthrough amounts for a $500 bonus would be $20,000 on non-table games and $200,000 on table games. So, you’re better off just playing the slots. But either way, this amount is very high.

Registration

The registration process for Unibet is extremely fast and simple to complete. The entire process is broken down into two steps:

  1. Choosing which welcome offer you want (sportsbook versus casino versus none), email, create a password.
  2. Name, date of birth, phone number, create a security question, last four digits of your social security number, address.

After providing this information, you’re able to play and access the site. This takes just a few minutes, if that.

Payments and Banking

Please note that banking methods can vary by state and it’s best to check the website to be certain with options are available. Typically, what you will find:

Deposit Methods

  • Unibet Play+ Card
  • Cash Cage at Mohegan Sun Pocono
  • PayPal
  • VIP Preferred eCheck
  • PayNearMe: Done at retailers such as 7/11
  • Online Banking
  • Visa/MasterCard

Withdrawal Methods

  • VIP Preferred
  • PayPal
  • Cash Cage
  • Check by mail
  • Unibet Play+ Card

Desktop/Mobile Experience

Currently, Unibet is offered on desktop, mobile web browsers, iOS and Android devices.

Unibet has a very basic and simplistic interface, but it gets the job done and done well. At the top of the page there are links to download the mobile app, the current promotions, how to get started and using Unibet and the help & info category.

Right below this, we jump right into the games which are sorted into the following categories: Popular, Slots, Blackjack, Table, Jackpot, and Video Poker. To the far right, there is a search bar if you want to look up a specific title.

After clicking on one of them, the games appear with a graphic attached.

Android and iOS users can expect a similar experience on the site. Since there really isn’t much going on in terms of graphics and what not, the site and mobile app are exceptional and do not lag or freeze up.

Simple, yet effective and get the job done.

Game Variety at Unibet

Unibet has enlisted some top-tier software developers to bring the game library to life: NetEnt and IGT are the two main ones.

  • 75 Slot Games: Including titles such as Bonanza Blast and Candy Blast
  • 4 Blackjack Games: Micro Stakes, Small Stakes, two “regular” Blackjack games
  • 8 Table Games: Roulette, Diamond Series European Roulette, American Roulette, European Roulette, French Roulette, IGT Roulette, Baccarat, Roulette Advanced
  • 1 Jackpot Slot: Jackpot Shores
  • 3 Video Poker Games: Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Game King
  • Live Dealer: The availability of live dealer games varies by state. In New Jersey, for instance, you can find live dealer blackjack, roulette, baccarat and three-card poker. In Pennsylvania, though, live dealer is not currently offered.

Betting Limits

A lot of the betting limits are not exactly known at Unibet and this makes sense as, with the amount of games in its library, it’s hard to track all of them. However, this is the information we do have:

  • Micro Stakes Blackjack: $0.50 - $100
  • Small Stakes Blackjack: $1 - $500
  • Blackjack: $10 - $10,000

Also keep in mind that limits can vary by state.

Return to Player Percentages

When it comes to Return to Player Percentages, this is an important statistic to know before wagering with online casinos.

Return to Player Percentages is essentially the percentage of money that will eventually be paid back over the course of the game being live and operable. For example, if the RTP is 90 percent, that means that, generally, every $100 wagered, $90 will be given back over time.

For Unibet, as far as RTP is concerned, we found that slot games are as high as 96 percent, which is definitely on the higher end, further promoting the idea of playing the slots at Unibet. Not only is the RTP high, but for the welcome offer, it appears more feasible to play them anyways.

VIP Program

As of right now, Unibet does not offer any sort of VIP Program. However, this is something that could eventually be added should Unibet and The Kindred Group find it reasonable to implement and do so.

Customer Support

To find the customer support section for Unibet, it’s easy: Click on “Help & Info” at the top of the page. From there, you can either access a comprehensive FAQ section, or one of the following contact methods:

Responsible Gambling Features

At the bottom of the Unibet page, there is a link to the Responsible Gaming portion of the online casino.

Here, Unibet has a plethora of methods to try and help and protect its customers. Unibet makes recommendations for what conditions to be in physically and mentally to wager, and different organizations and charities that you can contact to get assistance if you feel you have a gambling problem.

Beyond this, there are different things you can enable on the online casino such as setting limits on your deposit, session, spending, single bet limits and also set a self-exclusion period.

Our Verdict

There are definitely things that need to be cleaned up and addressed such as the high playthrough amount, but overall, Unibet provides online gamblers another solid online casino option. It may not be flashy, but Unibet will draw new users in with an easy to navigate and simple interface and a solid game library.
