More Casino Reviews

Unibet Casino dates back to 1997, and has won a number of awards during that time. Players from Canada are welcome to join (indeed, there's a Canada-specific site), and there's a fantastic range of games from multiple developers. For more on that, and other details, give our review a look.

Unibet Signup Bonus for Canada

New players can benefit from having their first deposit matched at 100%. This offer requires a minimum initial deposit of at least $10, and a maximum of $100. Furthermore, deposits made using Neteller, Skrill, or Paysafecard are not eligible. The wagering requirement varies according to usage, with a 25x requirement for casino slots and other games, a 35x requirement for the live casino, and a 6x requirement for sports betting (bingo is 4x). All the wagering requirements are average or better, and the match rate and deposit limits are more or less standard.

An alternative welcome offer, available after a first deposit of at least €10 has been made, relates to poker. This is worth €22 (roughly $30) of poker tickets, plus €700 ($1,000) in a play-through bonus that is released incrementally to the player as the rake sum increases. There are also four €500 freeroll tickets credited to new players after their first account creation on the poker client (these expire after 35 days).

Ongoing Promotions

Existing players can take advantage of numerous rewards, including participation in week-long poker tournaments with prize pools of around the $25,000 mark.

Usually bonuses are segregated on sites that have both casino and sports betting, but the Canadian Unibet site has one that enables those making sports bets to win a share of €500 twice a week. A sports bet worth at least €10 and placed between Tuesday and Thursday grants a player a ticket, with a second ticket available for a similar bet placed between Friday and Monday. The player can then join poker tournaments starting at 9pm every Monday and Thursday (noting that each tournament is limited to 1,500 players).

Other bonuses players can enjoy include freerolls offering daily tickets to tournaments and cash games. Poker Player of the Month, Quarter, and Year awards offer prizes such as poker tickets and avatars.

There's also an unusual twist on the reload bonus, which is normally a straight percentage of losses over a given period returned to the player. Instead, those who lose €20 on cash games become eligible for entry into Double Trouble, in which a prize pool of €4,000 is split between 100 top finishers to give them €40 each. Super Double Trouble is exactly the same, just with an extra zero at the end of every number.

The bonuses offer some nice variety, with one straddling the usually divided aspects of sports and poker betting, and a new take on the reload bonus.

Microgaming (and more) Games and Software at Unibet Casino

There are hundreds of slots available to play at Casino Unibet, with a wide range of software developers contributing games. These can be searched directly, or via category themes. Jackpot hunters can find numerous five and six figure prizes, and, at the time of writing, Mega Moolah, Microgaming's progressive jackpot juggernaut, and Yggdrasil Gaming's Joker Millions and Empire Fortune were all offering millions of dollars each. There are new slots such as Resident Evil 6 and Ricky Riches, plus classics such as Starburst by NetEnt and Microgaming's 243 ways to win slot Immortal Romance. On top of that, there are more than 20 exclusive slots games such as Troll Hunters 2 and Go Glenn. All in all, a fantastic range of games from a large stable of developers.

There's a good selection of around 25 roulette games with the most common variations (American, French, European) all present, alongside many others like Lightning and Multi-wheel. Blackjack fans have almost as long a list from which to choose, although the baccarat and poker options are more limited (with a few Stud Poker and Holdem games, plus live options). However, it's worth noting poker can be played against others on either a download or instant play basis, and Unibet poker is mobile compatible.

There are around two dozen live dealer games, mostly covering blackjack and roulette with the occasional baccarat, poker, or extra game like Football Studio or Monopoly.

Sports betting fans may also appreciate the convenience of the sportsbook side of Unibet Casino. It's certainly extensive, with sports in both Europe and North America well covered (there are over 10,000 markets on basketball and hockey each, and over 66,000 on soccer).

Top Unibet Games

Unibet Mobile Casino

Poker can be played on the go using the Unibet app, which is available for download for both iOS and Android (the two most popular operating systems for mobile devices). The site also has a general casino app which works with Android and iOS, so the site can be accessed easily via desktop, tablet, or smartphone.

A minor navigational quibble does arise, as the casino app is mentioned in the help section (and on the UK site's apps page) but the Canadian apps page only features the poker app. Probably just an oversight, but it's a rare one on a site that's otherwise rather impressive.

Licensing and Security

The Unibet Casino site for Canada is operated by Trannel International Ltd, which is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA). Malta is one of the top three international territories regarding the regulation of online gambling, so this is a reassuring sign (by chance, the other two (UK and Gibraltar) have licensed Unibet's UK site). In other positive news, Unibet Casino has been audited by eCOGRA and granted the safe and fair seal for its casino and poker operations.

Deposit and Withdrawal Options For Canadian Players

Visa and Mastercard credit and debit cards are both available for transferring real money, although players from Canada should be aware that they might not be able to withdraw using Mastercard. Those who are wary often prefer pre-paid cards, and both Paysafecard and Ukash are accepted. E-wallets are another popular option, acting as an intermediary service between one's bank and casino. Neteller and Skrill are possibilities for those who prefer e-wallets, although there may be withdrawal issues as per Mastercard. There's also the direct bank transfer, presenting a decent range of online funding methods.

Customer Support at Unibet Casino

Players from Canada can contact customer support via live chat or e-mail, on a 24/7 basis. Unfortunately the international phone line that was previously accessible is no longer running.

Our Overall Rating

Unibet has a simple and straightforward layout, a very good range of slots and large live casino, and a mammoth sports section if that floats your boat. There are several bonuses to choose from and a reasonable selection of funding methods, plus a license from a trusted territory. Overall, there's a lot to like and no real drawbacks.
