Unibet Sportsbook has a variety of options for Virginia sports bettors. First, you can receive $100 in free bets when you sign up at the online sportsbook. In addition, your first bet will be risk-free for up to $1,100.
This guide to Unibet in Virginia will go over those bonuses and other key information. We’ll also cover how to sign up, make deposits and cash out, along with the types of sports you can wager on and different bets you can place.
Unibet Sportsbook bonus offer in Virginia
To claim Unibet’s welcome bonuses, you must select the new player offer when registering and enter the code BETBONUS. Here is how the promotions work:
- Join bonus: Unibet Sportsbook will provide five $20 free bets after you create an account. You can use the bets on anything you want. If you win, you can continue to bet or withdraw your winnings if you wish to. For additional info, Unibet has a page with advice on using free bets.
- Risk-free bet: After making a minimum deposit of $10, your first cash wager of $10 or more will be risk-free. If that initial bet loses, you will receive a refund for an equal amount of bonus cash, maxing out at $1,100. You can wager bonus cash just like real money, but you cannot withdraw it until you have played through the full amount at least once. Wagers with odds of -300 or greater are the only ones that qualify for Unibet’s playthrough requirement. Lastly, you get 30 days to play through all the bonus money. After 30 days, it will expire.
Overall this is one of the best welcome bonuses you are going to find among Virginia sportsbooks. We’ve never seen $100 just for signing up, and the fact that the risk-free wager pays out in bonus cash is also impressive. With offers this good, we see no reason not to give Unibet a try.

Promotions at Unibet Sportsbook
Here is a sampling of additional promos available at Unibet after you’ve used the welcome bonuses:
- Unibet Sport Club: Receive a free $10 bet for every week (Monday-Sunday) that you make five live cash bets of $10 or more with minimum odds of -300.
- Unlimited Parlay Boosts: You can boost all your parlays of between three and 12 legs by as much as 50%. All your selections must have minimum odds of -200 to be eligible, the max bet is $100 and you can win up to an extra $20,000 per boost. Select “Bonus offers” when making your bet to claim the parlay boost.
- No-Brainer Boosts: Unibet runs this promotion from time to time, and you definitely want to get in on the action if it’s available. For example, when Unibet first launched in Virginia, bettors could double their money if the Washington Capitals recorded just one shot on goal during their game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Bets are capped at $25, but a free $25 is still pretty sweet.
The sportsbook announces new promos with regularity, so check the Unibet promotions page and opt in if you see an offer you like.
How to create a Unibet account in Virginia
You can register for a Unibet Sportsbook account on your computer, smartphone or tablet. After opening the app or website, click the green “Register” button and enter the following info:
- First and last name
- Home address
- Phone number
- Date of birth
- Last four digits of your Social Security number
In addition to choosing a password and security question, enter the bonus code to claim Unibet’s welcome offer as described above.
Unibet Sportsbook VA app
Unibet has an iOS and Android app specifically for Virginia. We like that the app is different from what the sportsbook has in New Jersey. The Old Dominion version is much sleeker and easier to use. To download the app, head to the Unibet site via mobile browser. If you don’t receive an immediate prompt to download the app, click on the “mobile apps” button in the top right. From there, click the link to download the appropriate app for your device and follow any additional directions from there.
Once you have the app, you’ll have a variety of ways to wager. You can select from a list of sports logos at the top of the screen, choose from the sports in the middle or enter a sport, league or team in the search bar across the top. There also is a separate button for live betting.
Placing bets is even easier. When you tap on a bet, the box will change from green to yellow and your bet slip will appear. You can enter a bet amount and submit it or simply keep adding bets to build a parlay or round robin. No matter what you choose, the overall odds and potential payout will display clearly, so you always know precisely what you stand to win.
On the whole, the Unibet Sportsbook app is impressive, and we trust the majority of Virginians will enjoy using it.
Unibet online sportsbook features
There is no question Unibet shines the brightest when it comes to its promotions. Unibet’s welcome bonuses definitely are its crown jewel, but don’t sleep on a lot of the other promos you’ll find. Most of Unibet’s promotion payouts are in bonus cash, and some are even in actual cash.
Another outstanding feature is the number of options users have for depositing and withdrawing funds. In general, we recommend checking the withdrawal choices in particular at sportsbooks to make sure there’s one that works for you. We have confidence Unibet will have one that meets your needs.
Where is Unibet Sportsbook lacking?
Unibet does not have a traditional rewards club where you receive perks based on how much money you wager, which is disappointing. Having said that, though, Unibet does have its promotion that gives you a $10 free bet every week in which you place at least five $10 wagers with odds of -300 or longer.
In addition, the sportsbook still does not offer single-game parlays, which some other Virginia sportsbooks, such as FanDuel, do allow. This is something we’d like to see Unibet add.
Available sports at Unibet Sportsbook in VA
Unibet has wagers on all the sports and leagues you would expect from a major online oddsmaker.
You’ll find a variety of betting options for the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB, MLS, WNBA, PGA Tour, NASCAR, UFC and tennis. In addition to all that, Unibet has markets for NCAA football and basketball, but due to Virginia gambling law you are not allowed to wager on any games involving Virginia college teams.
If you’re more of an international sports fan, you’re in luck because Unibet has plenty of markets for those leagues, too. If soccer’s your game, you’ll find markets for the UEFA Champions League, EPL, Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A, Liga MX and World Cup. You also will find markets for international basketball, hockey and football (CFL) at Unibet.
Unibet sports betting options
The three most prominent bets you’ll see on the Unibet Sportsbook app are spreads, moneylines and totals.
Spreads introduce an estimated margin of victory to make betting on either side of a game more even. To win a spread bet, your team has to cover. For favorites, that means winning by more than the point spread, and for underdogs it means losing by less than the point spread or winning outright.
The moneyline is the odds for a team to win the game. So to win a moneyline bet, you need to pick winners, and that’s it. A moneyline of -150 means you would need to wager $150 to win $100 on a successful bet. A moneyline of +150 means a $100 bet would win you $150 if correct.
Totals bets are wagers on the total overall score of a game. If you wager on the over, you are saying that you think the teams will combine to score more runs than the line Unibet has set. And if you take the under, you are thinking fewer runs.
You’ll find various prop bets available at Unibet, as well. Think of prop bets as side wagers. Wagers on whether specific players or teams will accomplish something are prop bets, as are wagers on the game itself, such as will the game go to overtime.
You also can place parlays, teasers and round robins at Unibet. All of these allow you to combine multiple wagers as a single bet for a chance at an increased payout. If you miss any individual part of a parlay or a teaser, you win nothing. Round robins allow you to miss a pick and still win some money.
Unibet also offers futures, which are long-term wagers like which team is going to win a championship, conference or division title. Usually the further out you place your futures bets the better your odds will be.
Live betting on the Unibet app
Live betting is when you wager on a game as it is taking place. You’ll find many of the same options for live betting that were available before the game started. The difference is that the odds will be changing rapidly depending on what’s taking place in the game. At Unibet you’ll even be able to wager on what is going to happen on the next play of the game for some of the most popular sports.

Is it legal to use Unibet in Virginia?
Yes, Unibet is legal in Virginia after receiving a temporary permit from the Virginia Lottery in April 2021. Unibet’s permit is one of seven standalone online sports wagering permits in the state.
While it’s legal to wager at Unibet, there are a few rules you should be aware of:
- Bettors must be at least 21 years old.
- You must be within Virginia to place bets. You’ll need to enable geolocation software on your device, and if it determines you’re not in Virginia, then you can’t bet.
- No betting on in-state college teams.
- Live betting on all NCAA events also is prohibited.
Who owns Unibet and where is it located?
Unibet got its start during the early 1990s when Anders Ström, who at the time was a student in Karlstad, Sweden, started publishing a newsletter primarily about horse racing.
Today Unibet is a part of the Kindred Group, an online gambling entity with 11 brands under its umbrella. As one of the biggest gambling operations in the world, the Kindred Group serves more than 25 million customers.
In the US, Unibet currently has online sportsbooks in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Indiana. More may launch in the coming months, most likely in Colorado, Michigan, Illinois and Tennessee.
