Online sports betting has launched in North Carolina, with the first operators going live on March 11, 2024. Unibet, the longtime e-gaming operator that has expanded into the sports betting space in recent years, and while it wasn't part of the initial launch, there is still a chance to pursue an NC license.

In this Unibet Sportsbook review, we’ll take a look at how the platform could arrive in NC, what features North Carolinians can expect if the site goes live, and how to get registered with the bookmaker.

No, Unibet Sportsbook is not legal in North Carolina. Unibet has not yet applied for an online sports gambling operator’s license with the North Carolina Lottery Commission and thus was not ready for the launch of online sports betting in North Carolina.

Per the guidelines of House Bill 347, 12 online sports betting operator licenses are available in North Carolina, eight of which have been claimed so far. If Unibet is granted a license, it could theoretically begin NC operations almost immediately thereafter.

When will Unibet have a promo in NC?

Unibet will have a promo in NC after it is granted a license by the North Carolina Lottery Commission and before the platform launches in the state. Keep in mind that Unibet may offer a promo that is unique to North Carolina players. If that is the case, we will update this page to reflect any promo pages or NC-specific bonuses that may be available.

Signing up for Unibet in North Carolina and claiming the promo

Once the platform is live in the state, signing up for Unibet in North Carolina and claiming the promo won’t take you very long to accomplish. In fact, most users will be registered and ready to place a bet in 10 minutes or less. Here’s how to get started.

  1. Navigate to the Unibet registration page and click “Sports New Player” then “I Want This Offer.”
  2. On the next page, enter your email address and the password you would like to use. Then, type in your legal first and last name, birth date, gender, and the last four digits of your Social Security number. This info will be used to verify your identity and confirm your betting eligibility.
  3. After the next screen loads, input your mailing address (P.O. boxes won’t be permitted) and your phone number, which will allow you to use two-factor authentication at login.
  4. On that same page, check the boxes that confirm your agreement to the terms of service, and that the information you entered is complete and accurate. When that is done, click “Continue.”
  5. Finally, make a deposit using the payment method of your choosing and place your first wager.

When the above steps are completed, you’ll be credited with the Unibet welcome bonus if your first wager of up to $500 is not a winning bet.

Top bonuses that could come to Unibet Sportsbook NC

Unibet Sportsbook NC is likely to offer multiple bonuses and promotions around the time of the launch. Here are some of the best betting bonuses in North Carolina that could come to the platform.

  • Second chance bets: There’s not much worse than having your first bet at a sportsbook result in a loss. To prevent that scenario, many sportsbooks have a second chance bet as part of their welcome bonus to give players the best chance to start their betting endeavors on a profitable note.
  • Deposit match bonus: When financing your account, Unibet may offer to match the amount of your deposit in site credit. These credits may not be withdrawn for cash, and they will expire after a preset time period if they are not used.
  • Odds boosts: Unibet will have a few lines listed daily with odds boosts, increasing potential payouts by adding what usually amounts to somewhere between +25 and +100 for those selected markets.
  • Parlay profit boosts: Each day, Unibet will likely have a few pre-crafted parlays which it will promote with profit boosts that could add as much as an extra $100 to winning payouts. Unlike the deposit match that awards the bonus as bet credit, this bonus is pure profit.

Important terms and conditions for bonuses Unibet could offer

From what we know about the promotional offers in other states, the following are important terms and conditions for bonuses that Unibet could offer in North Carolina.

  • Only players at least 21 years of age may participate in the promotion.
  • One bonus is permitted per person.
  • Welcome bonus may not be combined with any other offer.
  • If a user’s first bet results in a loss, they will be credited with one bonus bet in the amount of their initial wager. This bonus bet cannot be broken up as a series of smaller wagers, nor can it be withdrawn as cash.
  • The bonus bet will be awarded within 72 hours after the initial wager settles as a loss. No bonus bet will be given if the first wager is a win.

Possible fixes if the Unibet NC promo doesn’t work

If the Unibet NC promo doesn’t work, there are a few possible fixes that should make the bonus show up in your account. The first step is to ensure that your initial wager has settled. Remember – it can take up to 72 hours after your first bet settles as a loss for the credits to show up in your account.

Next, try logging out of your account, then logging in again. Additionally, closing out of the app or web browser entirely and restarting your device may help clear a cached version of the platform, allowing the bonus to show up.

If the above steps don’t solve the issue, you’ll need to get in touch with the Unibet customer support team. Instructions on how to do so are listed later in this review.

Why will Unibet Sportsbook North Carolina offer a welcome bonus?

Unibet will offer a welcome bonus to encourage new North Carolina bettors to register with the platform. The site will need to have a competitive offer to keep pace with the other top sportsbooks in North Carolina, as operators like FanDuel and DraftKings already have a brand presence in the state with their daily fantasy sports offerings.

What kinds of wagers will there be on Unibet Sportsbook?

Unibet Sportsbook will offer many kinds of wagers to appeal to all types of sports bettors. Here are some of the more popular options you’ll find on the platform.

  • Moneyline bets: Moneyline bets are the most straightforward type of sports bet. They involve picking the winner of a sporting event without regard for the margin or method of victory.
  • Spread bets: Unlike moneyline bets, spread bets are wagers on the margin of victory. For example, if the Hornets are listed on a line as “Charlotte Hornets -4.5,” a bet on Charlotte to win would require the Hornets winning by at least five points. Inversely, a bet on the Hornets’ opponent would pay out if Charlotte lost outright or if won by four points or fewer.
  • Prop bets: Short for “proposition bets,” prop bets are wagers on events that take place in the game that don’t necessarily have a direct impact on the outcome. For example, betting on a pitcher to finish with over or under 5.5 strikeouts, a football player to score a touchdown, or the number of saves a goalie makes would all classify as prop bets.
  • Futures bets: Futures bets are long-term bets that usually unfold over the course of a season. These often include wagers on a team to win a championship or a player to win a season-long award (such as MVP or Rookie of the Year).

The Unibet betting app in North Carolina

According to S&P Global, 86% of sports wagers are placed online or from a mobile device. For this reason, it will be paramount for Unibet’s betting app in North Carolina to be reliable, intuitive, and accessible.

Unibet offers a unique app for each state. On the one hand, this can be beneficial for geolocation features as the servers will be more finely tuned to players in North Carolina. However, this can also make things a bit trickier when traveling out of state, as you will need that state’s app to place a wager (however, you will not need to create a new account in that state).

How to download the Unibet app on iOS

Once the Unibet app is available on iOS devices in North Carolina, the download process will look something like this.

  1. Open the App Store on your iOS device.
  2. Search for “Unibet Sportsbook NC.” Be sure to include the “NC,” as Unibet has different apps for each state of operation.
  3. Press “Get,” then “Install.”

Once the download is complete, you’ll be able to create a new Unibet account or log in with your existing credentials.

How to download the Unibet app on Android

The Unibet sports betting app for North Carolina bettors isn’t currently available on Android devices, but once it launches, you’ll be able to download it by following these steps.

  1. Access the Google Play Store on your Android device.
  2. Search for “Unibet Sportsbook NC.” With a unique app for each state of operation, it is important to include “NC” in the search to find the correct product.
  3. Press “Install” and let the download run its course.

Once the installation finishes, you can log into your Unibet Sportsbook account and make a deposit to start placing wagers. Otherwise, you can create a new account if you haven’t already done so.

Unibet NC future payment options

Because the bookmaker hasn’t yet applied for a North Carolina operator’s license, we can’t say for certain what the Unibet NC future payment options will be. However, we can anticipate the list will be similar to the options available in other states. Here are some of the top methods you should be able to use following the launch.

Deposit

  • Credit/debit card: Credit and debit cards are almost universally accepted at sportsbooks. However, Visa and Mastercard are the only cards Unibet accepts, so if you’re planning to use Discover or AMEX, you’ll be out of luck.
  • Cash: Cash will only be accepted in person, and you’ll need to have a government-issued photo ID with you at the retail location. Because Unibet has not yet applied for a license, there isn’t yet a location up for consideration as a casino cage or retail location, but the bookmaker must have at least one option set up before it can launch in North Carolina.
  • E-check: E-checks are an available payment method for anyone with a U.S. bank account. When using this option, select “VIP Preferred” and you can register your account with the site. Note that deposit limits with this method are set by your bank, not by the sportsbook site.

Withdrawal

  • PayPal: While e-wallets are becoming accepted more often at sportsbooks, there are still many which aren’t permitted. However, PayPal is an exception, given the company’s long track record of reliable performance and ease of integration for businesses. PayPal is one of the quickest ways to access your winnings at Unibet Sportsbook.
  • Unibet Play+ Card: Functioning in a near-identical way to an ATM card, the Play+ card is a prepaid option that works for deposits and withdrawals at Unibet. Because the card only works at Unibet to deposit or at an ATM for withdrawals, your money cannot be used elsewhere if you lose the card.

Customer support at Unibet Sportsbook North Carolina

The customer support at Unibet Sportsbook in North Carolina will likely carry many of the same traits as it does for its platforms in other states. However, because the app will be specific for NC users, support times may be sped up without having to wait in service queues with bettors from outside of North Carolina.

Once the platform launches in North Carolina, you’ll be able to access the customer support options by clicking “Help” in the browser or the app. From there, you can look for an answer through the FAQ pages, or you can try the support chat, email, or phone options if you can’t find the information you’re seeking.

  • Live chat: Yes 24/7
  • Email: Available through the support form
  • Phone: 1-855-485-8882
  • Twitter: N/A
