We love playing on the Unibet poker app. It is one of the easiest apps to use as well as providing one of the best mobile poker experiences.
Unibet are a worldwide gambling brand with a great reputation across Europe. Unibet’s initial mobile poker offers were presented on the Microgaming Poker Network, MPN. However, they didn’t seem too happy with this, so they commissioned and launched their own mobile poker app back in 2014. The Unibet mobile poker app stands out because of its stellar quality. This is the reason it was initially available only for a select number of devices since the app’s superior graphics can only be supported by the latest versions of iOS and Android.

Unibet only support a downloadable app. They do not offer a HTML5 variation yet so Windows mobile users can not use Unibet poker currently. Sorry…….maybe ask the Mrs for a Samsung or treat yourself? Anyway the app is very good!
Why play on the Unibet Poker app?
If you are new to the poker scene, Unibet may not be one of the rooms that may come to mind straight away. Well they should! They are a very reputable bookie and have spent a huge amount of money and time developing their own poker app. Because they have designed and built it themselves, they have been able to add a few nice features that you won’t get on other poker apps. Unibet have a very good, loyal pool of players and most of them will play because they use Unibet for sports betting. What does this mean? Well the level of competition on the app will be quite low as they are not dedicated poker players, looking to play on a dedicated poker site like say PokerStars.
The Unibet poker app lets you enjoy regularly-updated missions and promotions that are all available in app and also on the desktop version. Every month, Unibet poker give you the chance to earn real cash prizes by completing poker missions in various game types. These missions are great value for money and are an ideal way to explore different areas of Unibet Poker to find the game which suits you most. The missions are fun and definitely worth doing. They range from simple tasks such as changing the background of a table to winning a tournament. The more that you work through and play, the more cool features you will unlock.
If you are worried about players getting an unfair advantage when playing online, well you don’t need to over at Unibet. There is no access to any poker player database software and heads-up displays are not available for use with Unibet Poker. This means that as a player, you happily play safe in the knowledge that your opponents are not gaining an unfair advantage against you. The quick-seat cash game lobby also ensures that all players are seated randomly so there is no way players can sit next to each other to try and gain an edge.
Design & features
We have to say that we are very impressed with how the Unibet Android poker app and iOS variant look and perform. Developing their own platform has worked very well for them as it is always a big risk not use tried and trusted software. Launch the app and log in for the first time and you can see the well laid out lobby. The app does support fingerprint log in which is essential to save time getting to the table, this is available on both Android & iPhone/iPad. The lobby is simple, well laid out and most importantly, easy to navigate around. You can narrow your game choice down by cash games, sit & go or by tournament. There is a menu located on the left, most of these options take you away from the app and to Unibet’s site so it’s best to keep away from these unless you need them. You can change settings on the app and choose deck colour, the option to display avatars and a few other handy options.
The first time you log in to the app, you can select your avatar from a big pretty cool list (See below) You can choose your username and have up to 4 different identities on the app. You can actually change your identity as well as your avatar up to three times a day. This is good so your opponents would never know when or if you’re playing. You may have beat them before and they would never know! If we are being a tad picky, we would rather play on a phablet or a tablet, or at least a large screen phone as the text can be quite small on smaller screened devices. Depositing and withdrawing is all done via the cashier which is in the top right of the app. You can also view your balance here too.
One of the best features on the app, apart from the actual games, is the tables. They are some of the best we have seen and you can choose from 10 different, cool and funky designs. While this may not be essential to game play, it certainly adds to the overall feel of the app and we like it a lot.

- Cool, unique design
