Now the fun begins! It is time to place a bet. You can choose to play on the regular, or if a game has already started, you can play on the live betting. Whichever you prefer is up to you! Let’s explore how to place a regular bet for starters.
We will take you through 5 simple steps to place the bet.
- Go to the sports book
- Choose an event
- Add to betting slip
- Enter amount
- Place your bet!
Go to the sports book by clicking on the menu in the top left corner on your phone and choose sports.
Now, some sportsbooks will take you directly to the sportsbook. In that case, you can skip this step if you end up on a section like this just press the Sports betting option.
This will take you to the sportsbook page. Here you will be able to navigate around the sportsbook freely. In the case of Unibet, you have your sports betting menu beneath the green top menu. You can easily navigate to the In-Play (live) games, choose to check out all events, your bets and search for a specific event. Let’s check out All sports.
Imagine all the different sports in the world. Now imagine that you can bet on almost every one of them. Amazing we know, and in this section, we can find all the available events on the betting site (there is a lot). By scrolling down, we can discover all kinds of sports, games, and events. We want to place a bet on the Premier League. Easy enough we find the most popular leagues at the top.
So many different upcoming games to choose among. Which one would you want? We will settle with Arsenal against Burnley. To place a simple 1X2 bet, you can get simply the odds in the green boxes. We chose Arsenal to win. If you want more option to bet on click on the small +146 button on the right part of the game, next to the Live button.
When you click on the Arsenal game, you will be taken to the page with all the bets available for the game. In this example, we just want to put a bet on Arsenal to win. Plain and simple.
So we just chose Arsenal to win which takes us to our betting slip.
In the betting slip, all we need to do is to choose the amount to bet. We can see the total stake and the potential payout. When we push Place to bet the bet will be placed and we can sit back and enjoy the game!
Just like that, you have placed your bet. As you can see it is straightforward to do. We have used mobile print screens in our example, but it works exactly the same if you are betting using a computer. The difference? You will have a bigger screen. But what if you want to play something else then just who will win a game? Well, let’s take a look.
