California has yet to legalize online gambling and sports betting, but once it does, Unibet Sportsbook will be knocking on the door to enter the market. Here, we’ve detailed what features and traits Unibet will bring to CA bettors once the sportsbook arrives in the Sunshine State.
Is Unibet Sportsbook legal in California?
No, Unibet Sportsbook is not legal in California. Sports betting is still prohibited statewide, even at the Native American casinos.
However, Unibet will likely apply for a gambling operator’s license once the sports betting status changes. The soonest California voters could approve sports betting is during the 2024 election, which would put sportsbooks in California on track to launch in mid-2025.
Once Unibet arrives in California, claiming the promo will likely take you about five minutes depending on what the bonus offer is (more on that later). The registration process will likely look like this:
Which betting bonus will Unibet offer when it goes live in California?
It’s hard to say at this point what California betting bonus Unibet will offer when it goes live in the state because Unibet frequently changes its promos. Because it won’t be able to launch until 2025 at the earliest, we’re left to guess based on bonuses Unibet has offered in the past.
You’ll likely be able to find a second chance bet, which is a very common sportsbook welcome offer. Other bonus types could include bonus bets, deposit matches, and/or “bet/get” offers where you wager X amount and get Y amount in bonus bets.
Fixing problems if the Unibet California bonus is not working
After California launches sports betting and Unibet is live in the state, the bonus should be credited to your account automatically if you’ve met the necessary requirements. However, if the bonus is not working, there are a few quick steps you can take to try to fix the problem on your own.
Most of the time, logging out of your account, closing your web browser or mobile app, then restarting your device will be enough to refresh the system and cause the bonus to show up in your account. However, if this doesn’t solve the problem, you’ll need to get in touch with Unibet customer support.
Common terms and conditions for the Unibet bonus in other states
Based on the terms and conditions for the Unibet bonus in other states, we anticipate that the following terms and conditions will apply when the sportsbook launches in California:
The best place to find the newest Unibet promotions will be right here on CASportsBettingSites.com. We will provide detailed information on all active long-term bonus offers such as welcome bonuses, season-long offers tied to a sport or league, daily odds boosts, profit boosts, and more.
However, for specific daily offers, your best bet is to check the “promotions” tab of the betting app or desktop site.
Once sports betting, and by extension, Unibet, has launched in California, it will take no more than 72 hours for your Unibet promo to be credited to your account. In most cases, the bonus will be available automatically. However, if you’re having issues, you should get in touch with Unibet’s customer service team to rectify the problem.
Types of bets offered at Unibet Sportsbook
Unibet Sportsbook has 19 sports available for placing wagers with many different leagues available for those sports. Here are some of the most popular types of bets offered at Unibet.
The Unibet betting app in California
Unibet releases a new version of its betting app for each new state where the sportsbook is permitted to operate, so players can expect their own California betting app to roll out from Unibet after the state legalizes sports betting. This unfortunately will make it more convenient to use the website when traveling rather than downloading a new app for each state.
However, for those who still prefer the mobile app, they’ll still have a quality product at their disposal. Unibet’s apps tend to hold a higher overall rating among iOS users than their Android counterparts, but the scores are still generally favorable in both app stores.
App users on both device types have addressed concerns about geolocation issues and general bugginess but were also quick to laud the customer support team for helping resolve the issues.
How to download the Unibet app on iOS
Downloading the Unibet app on your iOS device shouldn’t take very long, especially if you’ve got a steady internet connection. Here’s how you’ll be able to install it once the app launches in California.
After the download is complete, you’ll be able to create a new Unibet account, make a deposit, and claim the welcome bonus.
How to download the Unibet app on Android
It shouldn’t take more than a minute to download the Unibet app on your Android device. California players will eventually be able to download it by following these steps.
Once you’ve installed the Unibet app, you can log in with your existing account credentials or create a new account if you haven’t already done so.
Unibet CA possible payment options
Based on the banking methods Unibet utilizes in other states, we expect the following to be possible payment options for Unibet CA.
Customer support at Unibet Sportsbook California
Accessing Unibet Sportsbook’s customer support pages in California will be quite easy once the platform launches, regardless of whether you’re playing on the mobile app or desktop site. Unibet’s support pages are broken up into casino and sportsbook sections, even though online casino gaming is limited to a handful of states.
If you can’t find the help you need through the FAQ pages, you can also try using the 24/7 support chat. However, if that doesn’t appeal to you, email and phone support are also available. The phone number is 1-855-485-8882; we will update this page with the email address when it becomes available.
