Now that Kentucky launched sports betting in September 2023, Unibet Sportsbook wasn't be among the first operators to begin accepting wagers. However, we anticipate the bookmaker is in the process of applying for licensure and will be part of a “second wave” of sportsbooks to launch in the state. In this review, we’ll discuss what Kentuckians can expect if and when Unibet begins its KY operations.
Is Unibet Sportsbook legal in Kentucky?
No, Unibet Sportsbook is not legal in Kentucky. The bookmaker has not yet obtained a license from the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission and therefore cannot operate in the state yet. However, with the state having launched sports betting in September 2023, it’s likely only a matter of time before Unibet is legal, licensed, and live.
Once the bookie obtains licensure and begins operating in Kentucky, you’ll be able to join Unibet and claim the promo in a matter of minutes. Based on the registration process for other states, here’s what KY bettors can expect.
After the above steps are complete, you’ll need to make a deposit using the payment method of your choice and place a qualifying wager. With the active bonus being a $100 second-chance bet, you’ll need to wager the full amount to get the maximum bet credit if your first bet doesn’t win.
General terms and conditions for welcome bonuses Unibet could have
Based on the active betting bonuses in other states, Unibet could impose the following general terms and conditions following the launch of their Kentucky sportsbook promo.
If the Unibet Kentucky promo doesn’t work after the sportsbook launches in the state, there are a few things you can try to fix the problem. As a reminder, Unibet may take up to 72 hours after your bet settles for the bonus credits to reach your account, so note how much time has passed since the bet went final.
The simplest solution is to log out of your account, then log back in. Additionally, try closing your browser page or mobile app. Finally, restarting your device may solve the issue. However, if all of those solutions don’t work, you’ll need to get in touch with Unibet customer support.
Unibet will launch its promo in KY soon after the bookmaker receives its operating license from the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission. The company was not among the first sportsbooks in Kentucky to begin accepting wagers in the state when sports betting launched in September 2023.
The Unibet betting app in Kentucky
Unibet rolls out a unique sports betting app for each state. While this can be nice for players who are solely playing in Kentucky, it can be a hassle to download multiple betting apps while traveling to play out of state. Because Unibet is not yet legal and licensed, there isn’t a Kentucky sports betting app available for public download at this time.
How to download the Unibet app on iOS
Once the Unibet app is available in Kentucky, here’s how you’ll be able to download it and start playing.
After the download is complete, you’ll be able to create a new account or log in with your Unibet account ID and password.
How to download the Unibet app on Android
While there isn’t an app available for Unibet Kentucky yet, these are the steps you’ll need to take to download once the operator is licensed and the app is live.
Once the app is installed, you’ll be able to log in with your Unibet credentials and start playing, or set up a new account if you haven’t already done so.
Unibet KY probable payment options
Because Unibet hasn’t yet obtained a license to operate in Kentucky, it’s hard to say for certain how you will be able to finance your account. However, using the methods in other states as a guide, we would anticipate the following to be the probable payment options at Unibet KY.
Customer support at Unibet Sportsbook Kentucky
Whether you’re using the web browser or a mobile app, Kentucky gamblers will have no problem accessing customer support at Unibet Sportsbook once the operator goes live in the state. Unibet’s FAQ pages are sorted into sportsbook and casino sections (though Kentucky has not yet legalized online casino gambling).
From there, you’ll be able to access answers to your questions about banking information, promotions, your account, responsible gaming, and more. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, you’ll also be able to utilize the 24/7 chat feature, as well as email and phone support.
