Online Sports Book Review
Unibet is an online gambling company that has been around since 1997. Founded and operated in Malta, Unibet is run by The Kindred Group and has expanded to nine other countries with the United States being its most recent. Unibet found its way to Pennsylvania in 2019, a year after online sports gambling was legalized in the state. Unibet is partnered with Mohegan Sun Pocono as its physical location sportsbook. The site is one of the best options for bettors in Pennsylvania or New Jersey.
- Wide variety of sports to bet on including many European options
- Live betting and “cash out” options
- One of the best first-time user promotions on the internet
- Almost no promotions for existing users
- No loyalty rewards program
- Limited withdrawal options
To withdraw, users can choose a bank transfer, PayPal, or a cash cage at Mohegan Sun Pocono. Bank transfers and PayPal can take up to five days.
All online casino winnings must be reported to the IRS when you complete your annual federal tax return. This is done on Form 1044. You will tally up your total winnings and report them under the “other income” section. The winnings must also be added to your state tax return and are taxed according to your tax bracket.
To get started on the site, new users must create an account for Unibet. The account requires the user’s full name, gender, email, street address, and the last four digits of their social security number. The site will also run a geolocation search to ensure the user is in Pennsylvania or New Jersey.
Users can deposit with an ACH/eCheck, bank transfer, credit/debit card, PayPal, Play+, or at a cash cage at Mohegan Sun Pocono.
First time users are given two free $10 bets after signing up for an account. After their first deposit, a 100% risk-free bet of up to $250 is applied to the account.
One of the biggest positives on the Unibet site is its vast number of sports to gamble on. While some other sites have been limited to just American sports, Unibet includes European sports like rugby, cycling, and cricket, to name a few. The site also offers live betting and cash out options which are becoming more and more popular for online sports gamblers. It also has weekly offers like its “parlay of the week” which give bettors the chance to win high payouts on smaller bets. Unibet has a very easy to use website that has a crisp appearance for sports bettors. It is very simple to find a sport to bet on and to place a specific bet. Their mobile app is also simple to use, and bettors will be able to access these on Mac, PC, iOS, and Android. The interface on the site and the apps are great.
When looking for a place to gamble online, it can be very nice to know that the site has had long standing success and longevity in the industry. Both of these are true about Unibet which also allows users to head to their online casino for table games and slots. Unibet users are also given a great welcome offer that is very incentivizing for players to join the site. All new users get two $10 free credits to place on any event on the site, and users are given a risk-free first bet up to $250. If they lose that bet, they will be fully refunded within 72 hours. This is one of the best first-time offers on the internet. Unibet has similar odds to most other sportsbooks in the countries. Users can place bets on the site without being concerned about inflated odds.
Despite having a great first-time deposit offer and a weekly parlay, Unibet does not have a lot of other promotions for existing users. This can be frustrating for some people who are used to other sportsbooks that have a large number of daily and weekly offers. The site does not have a loyalty rewards program either, so there is no incentive to continue using Unibet exclusively. Unibet’s lack of withdrawal options can also be a hassle for some customers that do not want to use a bank account, PayPal, or a cash cage at Mohegan Sun Pocono.
How To Place A Bet
In order to place a bet, the bettor must determine what they want to gamble on. If the bettor decides to place a bet on the Nashville Predators moneyline against the Dallas Stars, they simply have to click the moneyline option for that game. Once clicked, the bet will appear on the betslip on the right side of the page. The betslip can hold multiple bets, so a player can choose up to 10 different betting options and place money on them individually or in a parlay, round robin, or teaser bet. Once the bets are placed, the betslip is cleared and the player can place more wagers if they choose to.
How To Deposit
The first step for new users will be to create a free account on the Unibet website. New users will have to follow a three step process to sign up. The first step is to create a username and password for the account. Once that is created, users needs to fill out the “Let’s Get Introduced” section which includes their name, gender, and date of birth. Finally, users will be taken to the “Just a Few More Details” section which requires a full address, mobile phone number, security questions, and an agreement to the terms of service. After the account is created, two $10 bet credits will be placed into the user’s account. These credits can not be withdrawn and are only to be used on placing bets in either the sportsbook or casino.
The next step for new users will be to deposit money. After their initial deposit, a risk-free bet promotion of up to $250 is applied to the account. This promotion ensures that even if the player loses their first bet, they will be fully refunded up to that amount. To deposit on Unibet, users can choose either ACH/eCheck, bank transfer, credit/debit card, PayPal, Play+, or a cash cage at Mohegan Sun Pocono. To withdraw, users can choose a bank transfer, PayPal, or a cash cage at Mohegan Sun Pocono. Bank transfers and PayPal can take up to five days.
Overall, Unibet is one of the best online sportsbook options in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Despite its limited promotions and withdrawal options, the online sportsbook more than makes up for it in other areas. It has a great desktop and mobile interface and provides an easy to use platform for users of all experience levels.
