Sports betting is coming to North Carolina, with an anticipated launch in early 2024. Among the sportsbooks that could be up for consideration is Unibet, the longtime e-gaming operator that has expanded into the sports betting space in recent years. 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.
Is Unibet Sportsbook legal in North Carolina?
No, Unibet Sportsbook is not legal in North Carolina, but the reason for this is two-fold. First, Unibet has not yet applied for an online sports gambling operator’s license with the North Carolina Lottery Commission, let alone been granted licensure. Second, online sports betting in North Carolina has not yet launched.
Per the guidelines of House Bill 347, online sports betting should launch in North Carolina sometime between January 8, 2024, and June 14, 2024. If Unibet is granted a license before January 8, it could theoretically begin NC operations on the earliest possible launch date.
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.
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.
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 which Unibet could offer in North Carolina.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
