Unibet, a Malta-based, Scandinavian-owned bookmaker, is one of the world’s leading betting sites. Their range of apps, and speciality in live betting, give them an edge against their competitors. They offer betting markets ranging from sports, to entertainment, to political events… and usually have an app to facilitate each market.
What about Unibet’s software?
Unibet are unique in their app offerings. Their website is fully optimised for smartphones and tablets, as well as the usual desktops. The Unibet Sports betting app is generally considered one of the best, and is available on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Android. The app offers over 40,000 live streamed events across the year, and gives access to a wide array of both pre-match and live odds. There are also settings to allow customers to set up push notifications for their favourite betting sports.
Alongside the Unibet Sport app, Unibet also offer a range of apps for the casino, live casino, poker, and slot game betting markets- although unfortunately, not bingo.
The Unibet Casino app has a clear, customer-friendly interface, which is easy to navigate. Bets can be filtered by preferred categories, allowing the betting experience to be nicely streamlined. There are 350 betting opportunities offered through the Unibet Casino app.
Unibet Live Casino has a separate app which works hard to offer an immersive experience to customers betting from home. Live games with real dealers in Roulette, Baccarat, Blackjack and Texas Hold’em Poker are all available to bet on.
The Unibet Poker app offers access to the same beginner guides that the website does, making it user-friendly for new and experienced players alike. Unfortunately, the poker app is designed for tablets rather than smartphones, making it a bit cluttered on smaller screens.

Unibet’s live betting and live streaming options
Live betting is how Unibet stands out from their competitors. Unibet TV is a live streaming service that offers access to a huge number of sports and matches. Live betting on tennis is particularly enjoyable with Unibet, due to their extensive range of matches available. The set-up of the website allows customers to live bet on the same page as the streamed match. In order to access Unibet TV, customers must either have placed a bet in the last day, or have money in their online account.
Unibet Live Casino and Poker
Customers wishing to bet on casino games are well catered for, with two options. The usual casino games such as Blackjack, Craps, and Roulette are offered through a well designed, easily navigable menu. However, it’s Unibet’s Live Casino that makes them stand out as a bookmaker- offering real-time matches, played with real dealers, which players can live bet on.
Poker is offered in two forms- online and downloadable play. For new poker players, Unibet offers a comprehensive webpage with videos that explain how to get started playing Unibet Poker. For those who just want to jump in and play, their quick-seat cash lobby randomly seats players with no fuss. Customers who want to fully immerse themselves in the game also have options to pick their own avatar and build their wins in story-driven games.
Unibet Open, a live poker tournament, has been running since 2007 and is now playable across most of Europe. The main poker matches are accompanied by smaller attractions, which can range from various casino games, to live betting events, to invite-only parties. The entry fee to Unibet Open is approximately £1000.
