Unibet sports betting

Unibet's online sportsbook offers fixed odds betting on the sports and other topical events listed below. If any of the sports seem unfamiliar (eg bandy - similar to ice hockey), it's only a reflection of the thoroughness with which Unibet seeks to provide coverage of international as well as UK-based sporting events.

American football Athletics Badminton

Beach volleyball Boxing Cricket

Field hockey Finance Floorball

The sportsbook displays odds in decimal format, which is relatively easy to pick up if you're more used to working with fractional odds. See our betting odds guide for help with understanding decimal odds.

Unibet sports coverage

There's no doubting that Unibet's sportsbook has a more European feel than many of its counterparts, with many of the main site navigation tools leading to continental European rather than UK-based events. On the plus side, this provides ready access to a broader range of betting markets than may be available from other bookmakers. Examples include tab-based access to French horse racing, Travnet Live Racing (pool betting on trotting) and Unibet's main menu links to the Europe-wide pool-betting games Supertoto and SuperScore. The extent to which such features may appeal is a matter of personal preference. Some UK clients may perhaps favour the familiarity of a more UK-centric sports betting site, whilst others will relish the diversity of betting opportunities. With this diversity in mind, Unibet does also offer the option of customising which sports and events are shown in the odds list. Betting customers can create a personalised hotlist (supported by help guidance), which can be viewed both online and when betting by mobile phone.

Unibet live betting

Clicking the live betting link launches an interactive calendar of current and upcoming events on which it's possible to bet in-play with Unibet. Sports covered by this in-running betting service include football, tennis, basketball, ice hockey, rugby and motorsports. Available betting markets can be listed by the customer's choice of sport or time.

Unibet live streaming

Registered customers can watch free live video streaming of hundreds of sports events each month. Live streaming is accessed via Unibet's Live Betting tab (when logged in), where events can be viewed either within the site's live betting window or opened in an external player for a larger picture. When using big screen mode, several sports events can be watched at the same time.

Placing bets with Unibet

To place bets with Unibet, begin by clicking on the odds for one or more selections from chosen sports / events coupons. Each time odds are chosen, the selection is added to the betting slip (located on the right hand side of the screen). The betting slip also displays entry fields for stakes plus the option to remove any selections by clicking on the bin icon. Any available combination bets are also displayed. To select any bankers (selections to be included in every combination) or includes (selections to be added to separate combinations), click on the "Includes & Bankers" link at the top of the slip. For relevant bet types, Unibet's betting slip will show possible payouts as stakes are entered. Clicking on Place bet concludes the process.

Payment methods

Accepted deposit methods vary by country, but include credit cards, Neteller, Moneybookers and bank transfers. Available methods are shown when clicking on Deposit within My Account.
