Twenty years making a name for themselves in Europe and Australia, Kindred Group has its sights set on cracking the US with its successful Unibet brand. A New Jersey launch has been closely followed by lift-off in Pennsylvania to see the European sports betting experts well placed to tackle the two most prominent US markets.

A European sports betting powerhouse has landed in the US.
Kindred Group, the European sports betting giants with eleven brands across Europe and Australia, are finally underway with trying to crack the US.
20 years as a successful gaming operator they may be but the best part of a year was spent perfecting the offering before showing up in New Jersey twelve months later than the competition.
Live also in Pennsylvania, the Unibet brand is now well underway showing America what it can bring to the sports betting party.
It appears Unibet has it all. Whatever your bet, whatever your sport, whichever wager you want to put money on, this sportsbook will cater for your needs. Period.
Seamless betting experience up there with the best
Powered by Kambi, the world-leading and much respected B2B tech provider, betting in-play and live streaming major events is effortless. The quicker than quick platform also makes for a seamless betting experience up there with the best.
Players who enjoy switching between sports wagering and casino can do both effortlessly from the same website and wallet. Like the sportsbook, Unibet casino is extensive in detail and games offered - getting bored with the game selection isn’t possible!
Betting options galore
Live in New Jersey and Pennsylvania
Major/minor sports, pro/college level, popular/niche/ moneyline to parlay, Unibet provide a clean sweep of wagers and markets. Not that we should be surprised, after all, this is a company that has been churning out numerous sports betting brands for more than twenty years.
The layout of the homepage won’t be everybody’s cup of tea. Some users complain of a messy, clunky, unorganized look, though in our view, a homepage of bets trending makes perfect sense.
Also worth noting is the lack of a rewards program at present. Promos are a sure way of attracting new and retaining customers but, at the same time, such a scheme or program which rewards loyalty is highly valued by customers. Something to be introduced at a later date, we suspect.
Finally, and of most significance, is the absence of an app for iOS users. To comply with Apple’s regulations, all apps must be built specifically to the state. An ongoing issue for many sportsbooks looking to launch for iOS users and not just exclusive to Unibet, the issue can be worked around but is an inconvenience.
Unibet - The Bottom Line
Being one of the most experienced doesn’t always equate to being the best. But you can’t lay this at the door of Unibet.
One of the most complete offerings in the US
Their fountain of knowledge and expertise makes for one of the most complete offerings in the US right now. The eventual introduction of a dedicated iOS app will propel Unibet’s popularity still further in the states.

How do the Unibet promos compare?
Fully aware of the need to be competitive in NJ and PA, the welcome bonuses certainly match up to what is already on the market.
As newbies to the US market, we would’ve liked to see Unibet go after the dominant DFS pair in terms of bonuses offered; in New Jersey, the $500 deposit bonuses offered by FanDuel, DraftKings and 888 sports put Unibet in the shade.
But those aside, there aren’t many offers better than Unibet, placing them high in the rankings in both NJ and PA.
Unibet Casino Bonus
Players in both NJ and PA will not only benefit from the exciting casino welcome bonus on offer. But at the heart of Unibet’s online casino offering is one of the biggest library of games in the US; Unibet PA casino debuted with 140 games, the largest amount of any casino on the market.
Here’s an example of the selection available for Unibet customers:
- Slots: Divine Fortune, Dead or Alive, Starbust, Guns N’ Roses
- Live dealer games: Lightning Roulette, Deal or No Deal, Money Wheels
- Table games: Blackjack, Roulette, Ultimate Texas Hold ‘em, Let it Ride
- Roulette: French, Advanced, Double, Master
- Video poker: Jacks or Better, Bonus Poker, Joker Poker
This barely touches the surface in terms of games offered. And there’s more to come too with up to 200 more games expected to be added to what is already an epic choice.
All new players who register an account at Unibet casino will receive a $10 bonus without having to shell out any money. This risk-free offer comes with a 3x wagering requirement and 30 days in which to use it, or lose it, as is the case with many welcome offers.
There’s a further bonus to entice new players in the shape of a 100% match up to $500 on first deposits. Players will need to turnover the bonus 40 times before the funds can be used!
Unibet mobile app
One of, if not the most important features of a sportsbook in 2019 is the ability to sign up to a new account and bet from a high performing mobile app. Safe to say, Unibet deliver here.
A standout feature of the app is how it will track how you use the website and apply your habits to mobile betting, making for a seamless betting experience should you be somebody who enjoys going between the two.
What’s also worth pointing out is how you can create an account solely from the app. More and more customers are choosing to experience sports betting from their mobile phone, making it important Unibet keep up with user trends.
Free to download wherever you’re located in NJ or PA it's important to note there are differences in how you access the app or play online in each state.
How to download Unibet app: players from NJ
iOS players can download the app direct from the App Store.
For Android users, the process is not as straightforward due to Google’s policy of prohibiting gambling apps from Google Play. This said, the process still takes next to no time to complete:
- Head to nj.unibet.com on your device
- Enable your phone’s settings to temporarily allow “unknown sources” from the security tab
- Download the app by clicking the ‘download’ button at the top of the screen.
Important to note that you can’t play for real money at Unibet through mobile web browsers. So, get going with downloading the app you require.
Download and sign up anywhere in NJ and PA
How to download Unibet app: players from PA
Due to Google prohibiting Gambling apps from its download platform, Google Play, you won’t find the Unibet app available for download directly. Instead, Android users can download from the Unibet website.
For iOS users, there is currently no app. Apple introduced strict regulations in April 2019 that means all apps must be built for each individual state. While a native iOS app will come at some stage, for now, if you’re an owner of an Apple device, you’re best advised to follow the steps below:
- Download Geoguard Location Validator App
- Enable Location Service on your device
- Click “ALLOW” in order to receive pop-up messages from Unibet
- Sign up at Unibet through mobile browser
- Ensure you keep the Geoguard app open for the whole time you are using Unibet
How to sign up at Unibet

- Terms & Conditions: read the t’s & c’s and tick box, confirm information is true and accurate

Unibet banking options
Deposit options (minimum $10)
For us, a measure of any high performing sportsbook is the range of deposit options available. We believe, as a customer, you shouldn’t be dictated to in terms of how you can get funds into your account. Looking at the list available, Unibet makes depositing funds easy for everybody.
- E-Check/ACH: VIP Preferred, Online Banking Transfer
- VISA/Mastercard: debit and credit cards
- PayNearMe cash deposits: 7Eleven, CVS Pharmacy
- Play+: deposit from MasterCard/debit card to own Unibet prepaid card
- Cash: in person at the Mohegan Sun Pocono casino cage for PA players/
The above options can be used to withdraw as well. As with most sportsbooks or financial transactions in general, you’re advised to use the same method when depositing and withdrawing.
We really liked the support options at Unibet so much so it has to rank among the best we’ve seen so far.
You can chat with a support operator through the Live Chat feature available through the main bulk of the day, 7 days a week. Likewise with making a Phone Call and talking with somebody direct.
Email completes the trio of options you’d expect to find at all good sportsbooks. Though if the issue is time-sensitive, it’s best not to go with this option.
Before attempting to contact Unibet direct, we’d recommend referring to The Unibet Help Center first. Popular FAQ’s and useful tips are broken down into sub-sections covering everything you can think of. “My account”, “Bonus & Promotions” and “Tech Support” are just three of the areas covered in what is a very comprehensive list of helpful pointers.
