Who offers the Best Welcome bonus: Bet365 & Ladbrokes
Unibet offer new players a £30 welcome offer, which is refunded in the form of a free bet if your initial wager is unsuccessful.
This promotion is valid across the whole of Unibet’s sportsbook, but you are probably best off wagering on an Aleksandar Mitrović red card.
Bet365 and Ladbrokes offer a similar kind of welcome bonus.
At Ladbrokes, new online and mobile customers receive a 100% matched bonus up to £50, with a small deposit of £5. This means if you deposit £35 you will be given another £35 to play with.
William Hill offers a similar matched welcome bonus, however the deposit amount is slightly greater than the other operators.
Verdict: while it’s always nice to have a failed bet refunded, the offer that Bet365’s promotion is more generous and is the most appealing welcome bonus.
Range of markets: UNIBET
Both bookies have a good range of markets, for both pre-match wagering and In-Play. Unibet and Bet365 offer:
• Full time;
• Half time;
• Asian lines;
When it comes to player markets the two operators offer a variety of markets.
Bet365 allow punters to predict whether a player will be first / last or anytime scorer, and whether they will score two or more, or three or more goals. There are also scorecast, wincast and timecast markets which allow predictions on when a particular player will find the back of the net, or whether they will score and their team will triumph.
Bet365 also offer a range of specials on every game, including markets like to win to nil, to score a penalty and many others.
Unibet offer two interesting player markets: to score outside the penalty box and to score from a header. These are two great options if you know of a player who has a knack for the outlandish, or a bullet header.
Another nice market offered by Unibet is player post or crossbar. Essentially wagering on whether a player will rattle the post at some point, otherwise known as the Giroud market.
Verdict: the type of goal markets offered by Unibet make them an interesting choice, and stand out from Bet365’s more generic types of wagering options.
Best odds: BET365
Let's have a look at the odds for the Tottenham – Newcastle game :
If you want to place a bet on Newcastle, both bookmakers offer 15/2. But if you are careful and want to try a more rational “Draw or Newcastle”, choose Bet 365.
When it comes to outsider betting, Bet365 consistently offer the best odds across the board. From football markets to volleyball this operator provided the best returns for outsider wagering. If your faith in Newcastle hasn’t been shaken yet, and you want to wager on them triumphing every weekend, head over to Bet365.
When it comes to backing the favourite the difference is less pronounced, however Bet365 still triumph, with almost all bets on the favourite returning more for you stake than on Unibet.
Verdict: whether it’s wagering on Newcastle, Barcelona, or anyone else, Bet365 are the place to go.
Additional services: UNIBET
Unibet offer users an extensive Live Betting selection, which features live streaming and match stats to help guide your betting.
Bet365 also offers live betting, under the name In-Play. Much like Unibet, there is HD streaming and stats and analysis to make predicting the outcome easier.
Away from the sportsbook, Unibet has a casino, live casino, games, bingo and poker section which can be accessed with the same account.
Bet365 also offer casino and games, but fall short of the wide range of options available on their rival’s site.
Verdict: for punters who want to diversify Unibet really is the best option.
Editors pick: BET365
Despite a strong set of additional services and an interesting range of markets, Unibet’s poor value odds compared to Bet365 is the deciding factor in the latter being our pick.
Bet365 also have a very strong welcome package which offers a more diverse betting experience for new users.
