Unibet Sportsbook is one of the newest online sports betting options available in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Initially, the online sportsbook made its US debut in New Jersey on Sept. 10, 2019. Unibet is in NJ thanks to its partnership with Hard Rock Casino in Atlantic City.
Unibet’s Pennsylvania sportsbook went live on Nov. 15, 2019. The online sportsbook is affiliated with Mohegan Sun Pocono in Wilkes-Barre, PA.
Unibet launched in the European gambling market back in 1997. Before expanding into the US, Unibet released its sports betting platform in more than 100 countries.
The new player bonus at Unibet is a competitive offer in the NJ and PA markets. New players receive:
Once you make a deposit into your account, you are eligible for the $250 risk-free wager. A risk-free wager means you receive a full refund, up to $250, on your first bet should it lose. Your account will receive a refund within 72 hours.
There is a minimum bet of $10 to use the risk-free wager. You are only eligible for these new-player offers once.

The Weekly Parlay Boost provides a bonus for bettors who place normal parlays. Depending on the number of legs in your parlay, Unibet will give a bonus on your profits if it wins.
For instance, a three-leg parlay gets a 10% boost, a four-leg receives a 20% boost and a five-leg gets a 30% boost.
To qualify, each part of the parlay must have odds of -500 or better. You can receive all three available parlay boosts once a week. Also, you must place this bet pregame, and the maximum wager is $25.
Unibet also showcases a promotion around NFL betting. With the 100K Pigskin Parlay, players can receive a bonus of $100,000 if their parlay does extraordinarily well.
To have a chance to win, you must place a $10, six-team parlay on NFL spread bets for games occurring that week. If all six teams cover the point spread, then you will win the normal payout for the parlay. However, if all six teams cover the spread by an additional 9.5 points, then you will win the six-figure bonus on top of the standard payout.
If more than one Unibet customer were to win in the same week, then the $100,000 prize will be split equally. Unibet players can enter three of these parlays each week.
Another regular promo at Unibet Sportsbook could win you free New Jersey Devils tickets. By simply betting on any NHL market during a specified prize period, you will earn tickets in the prize draw.
Every $10 wager gets you one ticket into the draw. Prize periods run throughout the NHL season.
Note: the Unibet NJ sportsbook app is available for both iOS (iPhone, iPad) and Android in NJ. The Unibet PA App is available for Android but not yet available for iOS. It will be released at a later date. iPhone and iPad users can use the Unibet Sportsbook through any web browser with the GeoGuard Location Validator installed.
In-play wagering works best on a mobile app, and Unibet Sportsbook has converted its European app to American platforms for both iOS and Android devices.
The first thing you will notice is that the mobile app and the website are identical in function and design. That also means that no matter what you want to do, you’ll be able to do it on the website or the app with the same ease.
If you want to only use the mobile app for all of your Unibet plays, you can. You are able to do everything, from registering for a new account to depositing and withdrawing funds, to placing and managing wagers.
Remember, you must enable location services when you want to place a bet. Unibet’s app must be able to use your phone to verify that you are within the state lines of New Jersey or Pennsylvania.
Joining Unibet is a simple process in both NJ and PA. To create an account, you must provide some general information, including your:
Also, you will have to create a username and password for accessing the online sportsbook. There are fields to enter security questions, too, for added protection to your account.
Once you finish entering all of the necessary information, you must confirm your age and agree to Unibet’s terms and conditions. A photo ID is not required to complete Unibet’s sign-up process in either NJ or PA.
Essentially, Unibet’s eligibility requirements are the same in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Bettors need to be at least 21 years old and physically located within their respective states to bet on Unibet.
Unibet utilizes geolocation technology to determine your exact location when you access the online sportsbook. Those using the sports betting app will need to turn on their devices’ location services, whereas those betting through the website must download a location plug-in.
The only other restrictions for Unibet are for individuals with specific jobs that could influence the results of sporting events. For example, players, coaches, trainers and referees in relevant sports are all prohibited from playing on Unibet. Others not allowed to gamble at online sportsbooks include key employees at casinos.
Bettors can deposit and withdraw funds through several methods at Unibet Sportsbook. These banking options will be the same for NJ and PA bettors.
Deposit options include:
The minimum deposit is $10. By connecting your bank account or credit card to Unibet, you can make instant deposits that are safe from fraud or abuse.
If you use PayPal to connect to your Unibet account, you can also make instant transactions that are safe and guaranteed by PayPal.
If you don’t want to use these methods, you can send in e-checks, cashier’s checks, personal checks or cash deposits made through PayNearMe locations found throughout the state.
Withdrawal methods include:
Withdrawals from your Unibet account can be very fast, providing that you used one of the instant ways to make your deposit: a bank transfer, PayPal account or credit card.
If you used an e-check, cashier’s check or one of the other means of making a deposit, you need to arrange for Unibet to deposit an electronic check into your bank account or to send a check to your mailing address. That final option will naturally result in a delay of several days.
Unibet offers several betting options in NJ and PA. The online sportsbook allows its players to place bets in the following ways:
Unibet provides every bet type that players have come to expect from online sports wagering apps. The most popular is live, in-game betting.
Live betting is popular because you can place bets during a game right from your phone on the Unibet app.
Besides continuously updated odds on common lines, like point spreads and totals, Unibet live betting provides a lot more options than you can bet on pre-game.
Players can bet on a variety of alternate lines as well as team and player props. Unibet’s live, in-game betting works the same in PA and NJ.
At this point, Unibet does not offer a rewards program for its customers.
Since so many online sportsbooks tend to roll out some version of a point system with their retail partners, many expect Unibet to do the same eventually.
With Unibet’s partnerships with the Hard Rock Atlantic City and Mohegan Sun Pocono in place, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a rewards program established sooner rather than later.
Unibet's opening entry into the US sports betting market gets the job done. Banking options could be slightly more robust, but there's really not much to quibble with here.
