Unibet Casino Review

Canada Sports Betting Unibet Casino Review

Unibet enters the fiercely competitive Ontario gambling landscape with over 20 years experience serving the European market. 

While not a household name to most Canadians, Unibet touts its experience, ease of use and clean platform to entice potential bettors.

Can Unibet Casino stand out enough to carve out a suitable niche or will it get left behind in an ocean of bigger fish.

We explore those questions and more in this review.

  • An experienced European brand
  • Fast and Functional Casino Games
  • Great Live Dealer Options
  • Geolocation Headaches
  • Limited Deposit and Withdrawal Options

In what markets is Unibet Casino available?

Unibet’s Canadian offerings are only available to Ontario based customers. As an iGaming certified purveyor, Unibet’s products can be depended on to maintain the standards and regulations set forth by Ontario’s gambling authorities.

In addition to its homebase of Europe, Unibet is also present in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

How to sign up for an account at Unibet Casino

The registration process for Unibet is simple and quick. Bear in mind that like other gambling sites in Ontario you will be asked to provide photo identification to prove your identity, age and place of residence. 

A valid Ontario driver’s license or Canadian passport are sufficient for this stage of registration.

You will need to include a symbol as part of your Unibet account password. This is not required by all sites so take the time to think of a password you will remember in the future.

Try to pick security questions that you will be sure to remember down the line. These questions are typically used when recovering your account if you’ve forgotten your login information, or when dealing with a Unibet customer service representative.

After all login and personal information has been confirmed, the last step in account creation is identity verification. At the time of review Unibet had not tailored this page to specifically address the Ontario customer. However in this reviewer’s experience, an Ontario Health card is not a valid form of ID for verification.

Overall user experience

This reviewer’s experience with Unibet Casino was positive overall but with a few glaring issues that we hope are resolved in the near future. 

The casino offerings work well. They are responsive and navigating the various categories whether on a browser or through the app is very user friendly.

The live dealer games load fast and offer lots of options to customise your ideal view of dealer and table.

After that, the problems come in. 

The platform is lacking in game tutorials, add to that the fact that demo games simply do not work on either the web or the app and it makes for a challenging experience for any newcomers. We recommend knowing the basics of the games you want to play on Unibet Casino.

Finally Unibet loses points for its frustrating geolocation setup. On the app, you are forced to download a 3rd party software before being allowed to play. On the web, wifi is required to confirm your location. If you’re on a computer with only a wired connection, you’re out of luck. 

Users with limited tech savvy or who are just weary of installing even more apps to their phones or tablets might choose to pass on Unibet entirely.

Should a different, more user friendly form of geolocation be implemented in the future we will amend this review to reflect the changes.

Unibet’s browser based offering is a relatively well designed and functional online Casino. 

It is very limited on clutter and its clean, cubic design for all the pertinent links and buttons is easy to navigate.

Casino games load quickly and rarely lag. Switching between categories occurs without wait times and loading into live dealer rooms is a painless process.

The only major site glitch encountered was when trying to load “demo” versions of games. These try before you buy offererings errored out on 100% of attempts to load.

Another potentially major problem for some users presents itself if you are trying to access Unibet from a computer without wifi. Unibet’s website utilises wifi (and only wifi) to geolocate its users and ensure they reside in Ontario. If you are attempting to use Unibet from a computer with only a wired connection, you will not be able to access the games at all. 

Should this flaw be addressed we will amend this review to reflect the changes.

3.5/5

The Unibet Casino mobile app is available on Android and iOS devices.

The Unibet app is a very responsive platform that loads content quickly and without error. With a dependable wifi or cellular network connection, browsing through the various options, changing categories or using the “go live” button to switch from fully computerised table games to live dealers is a hassle free experience.

However the app is not devoid of hassle entirely. In this reviewer’s experience attempting to load “demo” versions of Casino games (versions designed to let you try a game without using real money) errored out 100% of the time. When switching over to the real money version of the same game, it works without issue.

Unibet Casino’s app also utilises a 3rd party geolocation software. Meaning the user has to download and install a separate app so that Unibet can confirm your location. This can be confusing and off-putting to some consumers.

3.75/5

Deposits and withdrawals on Unibet are quite limited. You will have the option to use a credit card or deposit from your bank account via Instadebit. If you opt to go the Instadebit route will incur a transaction fee.

Some Canadian banks and credit card companies do not allow gambling related transactions. If your card falls into that category you will have no other choice than to use Instadebit and pay additional fees.

The lack of a wider range of payment and cash out options is definitely a strike for Unibet’s platform.

2.5/5

You will find the standard array of slots, progressive slots (known as Jackpot on Unibet, Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps, Poker and Roulette. Many different variations of these table games are present such as speedier or “lightning” versions of Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette.

Live dealer options are available for most table games, if you prefer to see and interact with a dealer in real time.

4.25/5

Unibet Casino offers users a number of tools to keep tabs on their spending and make sure gambling stays fun.

Users can set a number of limits such as Deposit limits, Time limits, Spending limits and Loss limits. 

You can choose a cool off period which will suspend your account for the chosen time, if you’re finding your gambling too much, too often.

Live chat technical support is offered between 8am and 11pm EST, 7 days a week.
