Overview of the official Unibet website
Very solid design, no complicated solutions, but looks cool. Plus it’s functional. For the look and usability of Unibet’s official website, Unibet is worthy of a solid A. The standards by which the site is made, familiar to the average bettor, all design elements are adaptive, and fonts are not deformed and easy on the eye. The structure of the resource is the most optimal. In the header – help and login. The main menu includes sports, casino, live casino, games, bingo, poker, that is, only the most important, and a little to the right – mobile applications and promotions. The central part is made entirely of blocks, above which there is a slider with the most interesting offers. Beneath the blocks are links to social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) and the blog, and still below are the rules, the responsible game and a site map of seven categories: – Sports (sports betting, racing, virtual sports, statistics&livescore) – Casino (casino home, casino tournaments) – Live Casino (live casino home) – Games – Bingo (bingo home, minigames, getting started, bingo tournaments, loyalty, jackpots, games schedule) – Poker (poker home, getting started, features, challenges, tournaments, unibet open, unibet open livestream, leaderboards, poker guides) – About Unibet (help centre, affiliates, careers, kindred group, site index).

Sports line, depth and odds
The sports line of Unibet is not the most interesting on the market, but still respectable. About fifty sports are represented here, there are also, so to say, amateur disciplines like surfing, trotting or floorball. For not the top football match the bookmaker offers more than 200 markets, for the top ones even more. As for football, the line – just a dream, hundreds of tournaments, dozens of countries, you can find anything you like, even the second-tier championship of Uganda or amateur English tournaments. A little worse, but still excellent representation of hockey. The other sports are inferior to football quite a lot. There are a lot of offerings for cybersports and non-sports events, especially political ones. Margin ranges from 5 to 7%, which of course does not make the odds very attractive (for equivalent events around 1.87), they are the most average on the market.

The LIVE line is slightly inferior to the pre-match, but the key word here is “slightly”. On the other hand, Unibet’s live betting has some interesting solutions and tricks that might appeal to players. If there is a withdrawal option, the player can cash out the bet before the outcome is decided, allowing them to get some of their winnings or cut their losses. In some sports, payouts are available for Live, Pre-Match, Outrights and Accumulator bets and can be more or less than the original bet. Before a bet is placed there is a Cash Out mark in front of it, which entitles the player to this option. Once a bet has been placed the player can choose to cash out using the “My Open Bets” tab on the event page. The bet will be settled at the specified price and the money will be credited to the account immediately. It should be noted that Cash Out is not always available. Please refer to section B.1.3 of the Sportsbook Terms and Conditions for further details. Occasionally events that have been scheduled in the Live Betting Calendar are either deleted or interrupted whilst they are taking place. This is usually due to technical problems, for example on television. Live bets are calculated as soon as the result is known. For example, a bet on total over/under 1.5 will be settled as soon as the second goal is scored. The money is credited directly to the player’s account and becomes available for further bets. In order to place a bet, you must select the result you wish to bet on, click on the odds and confirm the bet. For a Parlay you need to select all results for it (max. 12), they will appear in the betting slip. If the bets are not paused and the odds do not change in the next few seconds (in this case you will have to accept the new odds first), the bet will be accepted. All accepted bets can be viewed under “My bets”.
Video broadcasts on the Unibet website
Video broadcasts are shown in a separate category on the website, which is very convenient. Once you go into this, you can see straight away which events are available. The live broadcasts (Unibet TV (UTV)) are free. They are available for logged-in users who have a positive account balance or have made a bet in the last 24 hours. Video delays are possible and are usually less than 10 seconds, although sometimes they can be longer. Broadband speeds may also affect the length of the delay. Unibet does not acknowledge and accept no responsibility if a player makes a mistake due to a video delay. It is up to the player to check the results. The bookmaker imposes restrictions on broadcasts due to streaming rights in some countries. According to the rules, it uses the player’s IP address along with his account address to show him only those events that are allowed to be streamed in each specific region.
How to find out match results
The bookmaker offers a full match centre, which is tucked away in the statistics&livescore category. On the main page of the section there are blocks with sports. “Falling” into any of them, we see the biggest tournaments as the first list, then the countries. Everything is very detailed and deep – for instance, navigating to Football England there are ten (!) championships.
