Disclaimer: Unibet Sportsbook is not yet live in Indiana. When Unibet.com launches in IN, we will update this review with all you need to get started betting online.
Unibet’s corporate parent, The Kindred Group, is one of the world’s largest online gaming companies; however, it is relatively new in the US. The Scandinavian company opened its New Jersey online sports betting operation in September 2019.
Since then, it has opened in Pennsylvania and will shortly launch in Iowa and, of course, Indiana.
In NJ, Unibet became partners with one of the biggest brand names in America, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. For its launch in Indiana, Unibet is partners with an even bigger brand: Caesars Entertainment.
Caesars will offer its own sportsbook under the license of Caesars Southern Indiana. However, Caesars also owns Horseshoe Hammond Casino and will use that casino’s license to deliver Unibet-branded sports betting in the state.
Unibet offers quality software that is backed by more than 20 years of experience in the European gaming market.
Indiana bettors looking to get into sports betting can expect a safe, secure, and quality experience with all the bells and whistles of a modern online sports betting operation at Unibet Sportsbook.
At other Unibet sites, the operator offers a new customer bonus that lets players place their first two bets without depositing at all.
We may see this same offer come to Unibet Indiana.
Unibet is keen to attract new customers, so much so that it is handing out free money.
Every new sports bettor gets two bonuses.
The first consists of two free $10 bets, no deposit required.
Simply register for an account, and two free bets credits will appear on your bet slip. To use your credits, simply add a sports bet to your slip.
The second bonus offer provides a risk-free bet of up to $250.
After you deposit at least $10, you can make a risk-free bet.
Let’s assume that you deposit $100. Then your first bet can be for the whole $100. If you lose, Unibet will refund your account the bet amount.
The max amount of bonus credit available on this offer is $250. So, even if you deposit $500, your risk-free bet amount will only be $250.

Unibet online sportsbook offers regular promotions, rather than a loyalty or VIP program, to retain customers.
You must be 21 years or older to register and wager at Unibet Indiana. Furthermore, you must also be within Indiana’s state borders.
The Indiana Gaming Commission excludes specific categories of people from betting. Those groups include people on the gambling self-exclusion list and employees and players of participating athletic teams.
Getting started at Unibet online sportsbook couldn’t be easier.
You can choose to open your account from your desktop computer or your Android or Apple mobile device.
Once Unibet Indiana goes live, simply follow our link and fill out a couple of online forms.
You need to provide your first and last name and email address.
Indiana regulators require that Unibet verifies your age, identity, and address before you can bet with real money. Furthermore, you’ll need to provide these details plus the last four digits of your Social Security number.
This information prevents underage gambling and protects against criminals using online gambling to launder money.
If you are out of state, you can set up an account, but you must be within Indiana to place sports bets.
Geolocation technology precisely identifies your location to ensure that sports betting operators don’t break the law by allowing anyone outside of Indiana to place a bet.
Unibet lists 37 sports on which it will accept bets on its New Jersey betting app. So far, Indiana sports betting looks quite a bit like the New Jersey market. Both states are the only jurisdiction to allow betting on the Oscars, for example.
The Indiana Gaming Commission has, to date, offered quite a bit of leeway on what Indiana sportsbooks can offer, including Super Bowl prop bets and bets on professional sports league drafts.
So, this list is not likely to be exhaustive, but the law currently permits bets on:
Unibet offers the latest sports betting types available, including:
Unibet offers betting on games even after they have started. The odds change and update after every play. In-play betting options include spread bets, totals, and props, just to name a few. Most in-play betting involves prop bets. However, you can place a standard moneyline bet, too.
In-play betting is the most popular form of gambling in Europe and consists of roughly half of the sports bets in New Jersey.
Unibet offers a vast array of in-play betting options depending on the involved sport. The more popular sports, such as football and basketball, have more in-play betting options than less-popular sports.
Unibet offers three promotional bet types that are well worth taking advantage of:
The Unibet sports betting platform works equally well on desktop and mobile devices, including both Apple iOS and Android.
The screenshot below shows the desktop home page from Unibet Pennsylvania.
Note that it has an option for “Casino” next to the “Sports” tab. This option won’t be available in Indiana, as the state only legalized online sports betting.
The menu bar on the left lists the most popular sports. The number next to each entry indicates how many bets are available for each.
If you click on the “Live Right Now” menu item, you go to a screen listing all the games that are currently running.
Next to each is the basic moneyline odds display with a “More Wagers” link that takes you to all the different bets possible for in-play betting for that game.
You can see all your outstanding odds on the betting slip, which you can access from the top right of the screen once you log in to the platform.
Drilling down through the menus is easy, but beginners should take time to explore the bets at each level. Unibet offers a vast range of wagers and bet types, so novice sports bettors might find it a little bewildering at first.
There is a comprehensive FAQ accessible through the “Help & Info” tab at the top of the home screen. If you find yourself not sure where to start, this is an excellent resource.
This is a heavyweight site for serious bettors. Even though the menus are uncluttered and simple, there is a great deal of detail available as soon as you start deep-dive into each betting option.
Unibet has clearly put a lot of effort into making its mobile sports betting platform as easy to use as possible. As a result, the vast majority of Unibet customers do most of their sports betting using the mobile apps.
There are versions of the mobile sports betting app for Apple iOS and Android devices. They both offer the same functionality with the same look and feel.
Signing up for a new account with your mobile phone can be slightly irritating. The easiest way to get going is to sign up through your desktop and then download the appropriate app. Simply follow the link on this page.
Although the Apple app is available from the Apple store, the Android app is not offered at the Google Play store. Android users will need to download the app directly from the Unibet website. In both cases, you use exactly the same password and user name on the app as you do on the desktop platform.
There are a couple of extra features in the mobile app that aren’t a part of the desktop version. You can set notifications to let you know when your bet is completed, and you can set up a notification to let you know when your favorite teams are playing.
All the same deposit and withdrawal options of the website are present. The New Jersey version of the app includes online casino games, but these are not yet legal in Indiana.
One feature available in Unibet’s dot.com business is livestreaming of games directly to your mobile device. It looks like the ability to do this is embedded in the New Jersey app, but not active yet.
By the time Unibet Indiana launches it is quite likely that livestreamed sports matches will be an option. Naturally, in-play betting is fully developed in the mobile app.
For hockey fans, Unibet also offers a separate “Hockey Expert App.” This must be downloaded apart from the sports betting app, but it offers expert tips on how to bet on hockey.
All in all, you won’t be disappointed with the sports betting experience on Unibet’s apps. They have over 10 years of experience gained in global markets, so the mobile apps are definitely at the cutting edge of what is now available.
Here is where the benefits of betting at a legal, state-regulated site pay off.
If you have tried to deposit and withdraw from an offshore account, you will know how long the process can take. In the legal market, banking is quick and easy.
Legal US sports betting sites can use the US banking system to take deposits, although some banks still have a ban on gambling transactions.
If so, Unibet offers several alternatives:
You can withdraw funds the same method you use to deposit, except for PayNearMe.
Should you have a question or a problem regarding your account, Unibet offers a comprehensive customer support service.
From the “Help & Info” tab, you can choose to get help via email, telephone, online live chat or by going to the help center’s FAQ.
The option of telephone support is not always available from online sports betting operators. If you prefer to talk to someone when dealing with a problem, Unibet provides that option.
Unibet is determined to successfully expand into the US sports betting markets.
It has a proven sports betting platform, high-quality customer service, and a truly comprehensive product offering that should satisfy all types of sports bettors.
If you are a sports fan who is just beginning your journey into sports betting, an account at Unibet is a safe option. You will find the support you need and plenty of promotions to ensure that you get more ways to make profitable bets regularly.
Keen sports bettors will appreciate the range and depth of Unibet’s offer.
With a new customer bonus of two times $10 free bets, everyone can try out Unibet sports betting without the need to make a deposit.
