Unibet Casino app
Unibet Casino is one of the largest and most popular online casino sites in the world. They have been running both a successful online casino & Sportsbook in Europe for well over ten years and have now launched in New Jersey and also Pennsylvania. The licensed operator is available on desktop, and of course, on dedicated apps for Android and the iPhone, we take a closer look at NJ & PA’s latest online casino offering.
The app lets you experience the thrill of the casino, anywhere in the Garden or Keystone State. Our complete guide and Unibet Casino review will tell you how to download the app, what features are available, the bonuses & promos available to players, and of course, let you know if it is any good! So for you mobile players, getting the app is easy:
There is no downloadable iPhone app yet for Unibet Casino for NJ or PA players. You can use the Add to home screen option to make a quick link. Navigate to https://nj.unibet.com and sign up to claim your bonus. Then open the browser menu and select Add to Home Screen. This will add the web app to your iPhone or iPad as a quick link.
On your device, go to https://nj.unibet.com and join to claim your bonus. Open the menu on the left and scroll to Mobile and click on the Download for Android
button. A pop up will ask if you want to download the unibetcasino-us-1.0.apk click OK. Let the app download, click Install. Allow Unknown Sources from the settings in your mobile's security settings. Press OK and the app will install. Launch the app and log in.
Please Note: As it stands, Google & the Google Play Store do not allow any real cash gambling or wagering apps to be available in the US store. To get the official, real money app, you need to download the Unibet Casino APK by following the instructions above and getting it via the mobile site.
As one of the most popular online Casinos and Sportsbooks in Europe, it was only a matter of time before Unibet launched in the US. They initially started in New Jersey and then Pennsylvania around six months later. The Casino is one of the most complete of any NJ online casinos, and we have been impressed with the choice of games and service from the operator. These days any successful operator needs a mobile app, and Unibet Casino NJ & PA has got on that bandwagon.
The size of the Android app is small for a complete casino, so it only takes a few seconds to download on WiFi or 3G/4G. You can tell Unibet was keen to get this app to NJ & PA players as they launched the Android version before an iOS version. Operators usually choose an Apple over a robot, but not in this case. You can only play real money games via the Android app and not via the browser, which is a strange move, but we think we know why. This app only supports a casino, there is no Sportsbook app for NJ players as part of this offering, but there is a separate Unibet Sportsbook app which was launched in September 2019. The Unibet Casinos NJ was the operator’s first entry to the US market, and they are looking to start as they mean to go on, and offer customers a first-class mobile gambling experience. Have they been successful? We will take a close look……….

Unibet Casino are registered and regulated by the Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) in New Jersey and also the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, so you are safe and legal to play in the stat as long as you are over 21 and in the State borders.
Unibet Casino Mobile
As we touched on earlier, currently, there is only an Android casino app from Unibet to play casino games on in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The iPhone version is due any minute now. We hope a browser-based version also arrives quite soon as other legal US casino apps let you play in the browser if you don’t want to download a dedicated app or wait for this one to be available.
In terms of offerings, there are around 250 games available in the catalog, and that number is just going to grown. This is quite a large number but small compared to the offering in Europe, where there are over 500 titles. There are lots of popular titles, including:
- All That Cash
- Angels Touch
- Big Spinner
- Cool Loot
- Crown Egypt
- Many more
Table Game types
- French Roulette
- American Roulette
There is a current lack of video poker on the app, but we would expect this to be addressed in the next update. There is a much wider choice of games available on the desktop browser version of the platform
Who doesn’t love free money? Well, no one, right? Join up to Unibet Casino in NJ, or PA, and you can get not 1, but 2 bonuses. The first is $25 Free Play with no deposit needed; the 2nd is a matched deposit bonus up to $500.

You can join on your mobile, via the casino app or on the regular website on a laptop/PC.
There are also several other promos available with the online Casino, but only on the desktop version. We are hoping they make their way to the mobile app. In the meantime, you can view these on the app, via the menu and promo tab.
Game of the week – Play an exciting new game each week with a unique bonus
Unibet is part of the Kindred Group, who have partnered up with Hard Rock International, who are the owners of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City. Now, these guys know a thing or two about entertainment, and you can see and feel that in the app. The design is straight forward. It is not flashy or in your face. Just well laid out and easy to use. We expect the iPhone version to be identical to the Android counterpart, they are in Europe, so there is no reason to expect differently in New Jersey.
The main lobby is simple and splits games into the following categories: Recommended, New, Slots, Table Games, and All Games. There is a search facility in the menu on the left where you can search by title, rather than having to trek through the full list. Here you can also find a handy Get Started guide, which will walk you through playing on the app, depositing, and playing. This isn’t needed as the mobile casino app is straightforward to use.
No less than 28 game providers are responsible for the titles available across the app and online, including some of the biggest and best developers such as SG Gaming, IGT, Microgaming, Williams Interactive and NetEnt. They are responsible for a lot of the top games across many online casinos. As of February 2020, you can add Evolution and their Live Casino to this impressive list.
The gameplay is slick as you would expect, and the app is very responsive. During our hours of testing the various games, it didn’t freeze or crash once, which is always a positive thing. There is a practice mode available if you do want to get used tot he games before playing with real cash. Selecting a title is easy. Just make sure you are signed in and have funds in your account before trying to play for money. A demo play is an excellent option; with so many games to choose, it is important to try a few games before putting down your money. Get a good feel for the reels and game types. If you click on the title, you can see the Minimum & Maximum bet, the number of lines and reels, maximum payout, and the Return To Player (RTP) percentage. There is also a small write up about the game for you to flick through too.
What could be improved on the app?
We get the feeling this isn’t the complete package yet from the Unibet casino app. We are missing a Live Casino, Poker access, and a lot of games that are available on the European version and the desktop site. Does the app feel a bit rushed to market? Yes and no. What is there works well, but it is just missing something. We have to keep in mind it was only Launched back in June 2019, so it is still very early on, and the developers will be continually looking to improve the offering. We are also slightly bewildered at the lack of a VIP or loyalty program with the casino…….will they do one in the future? That we are not sure of, but we would hope so.
There is a help center available on the app and the normal website. Tap the small icon bubble in the bottom right of the screen to bring it up. Here you can search for the most asked questions and also access the live chat facility if you can’t find what you are looking for. If you would rather call there is a direct dial on the site and also an email, which you can get them on email@example.com
Cashier & Banking Options
We didn’t expect to see anything groundbreaking with the Unibet’s online casino here as most online casinos in NJ & PA (at least legal and regulated ones) all offer similar banking options. Withdrawals and deposits were handled in a swift manner during our testing. Deposits were pretty instant, withdrawals depending on the method were instant (PayPal) or took a few working days for cars and ACH transactions.
