Review of Unibet Casino

Established in 1997, the Swedish owned Unibet is one of the largest online gambling operators in the European Market. It is licensed and regulated by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta and is probably best known for it’s sports betting operations. Boasting over 9 million customers spanning more than 100 countries, it also offers Live Betting, Casino, Poker, Lotteries, Bingo and Skill Games.
Unibet awards and certifications

Unibet has won several prestigious awards for its operating excellence. eGaming has awarded Unibet the European Sports Betting Operator of the Year award, three years running and in 2009 they won the European Live Gaming Operator of the Year for their Live Casino. And from a security and fairness standpoint, they are certified to be compliant with eCOGRA’s standards.

But enough about their achievements, what about their casino games I hear you ask?
Unibet game selection and software

Unibet offers the traditional online casino as well as a live casino. Their Live Casino offers Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette which is played in real time with live dealers. Using the chat functionality, players can speak to the dealers and other players at the table. No downloading is required, as long as you have a real money account, play starts straight away by simply clicking on a seat and placing your bet.

This sort of instant gratification can also be found in their instant play casino which is accessible straight from their website. This flash casino is powered by Net Entertainment and offers just over 100 games including Table Games, Video Poker, Slots, Progressive Jackpots and Speciality Games. And best of all you can try out and experience all the games without registering.
Progressive jackpot winners at Unibet

There are a selection of massive progressive jackpots available on both the Microgaming and Net Entertainment games (see below for current values), and there have been some serious wins at Unibet. Their Hall of Fame details the all time winners and the current month’s biggest winners. A little bet of 1.25 on Mega Fortune netted the biggest jackpot win of over 4,300,000 in June 2009 and the next biggest win of over 1,600,000 was hit in 2010 by a gentleman playing Arabian Nights.
Customer support and banking options

The customer support crew is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at Unibet, and staff are available speaking a multitude of languages. Perhaps its a result of the sheer size of Unibet’s operations, but we have found the support to be a little slow at times. Nothing too bad mind you, but you’ll sometimes find the live chat operators to be too busy, so you’ll have to resort to an email enquiry instead.

The banking options at Unibet are plentiful (see list to the right). Aside from the standard collection of e-Wallets and Credit Cards, there are also many localised deposit and withdrawal methods that are tailored to individual countries. Your funds are stored in a central “wallet” on the site which you can then transfer into and out of the various sub-sites – i.e. casino, sportsbetting, poker etc.
