As I was going through the Unibet ‘About Us’ page, I noticed that the company was founded specifically to inform players on how to place bets and that they are committed to ensuring that punters have the ‘broadest sports betting offers, including niche sports and fixtures’. And this is exactly what Unibet is about; offering you a wide array of sports betting events ranging from Football, Basketball, Horse Racing, Golf, Tennis among many others.
The most recent addition to this sports betting events is the eSports betting. eSports as a sporting event is gaining popularity evident by the ever increasing number of events and competitions being hosted by the same. Due to this surge in popularity of the game, Unibet and other top bookmakers have now decided to come up with markets that enable fans and punters to bet on the outcome of the events.
