The online poker industry has been struggling a bit in recent years, with many of the largest networks experiencing a decline in traffic. At Unibet it's been a whole other story since the launch of our own client and network. The traffic has consistently been increasing since the launch in 2014, and we're proud to say that we're the fastest growing licensed poker network in the industry.

Being an online bookmaker requires both the ability to follow the incredibly fast development we’re seeing in the industry by being innovative in terms of implementing new functions and providing the best gaming experience on the market. Our goal is to offer the best gaming experience out there, and as high as this goal may seem, we truly believe we’ve got the dedicated team with the necessary talent to reach it!

The iGaming business is often portrayed as the bad guy trying hard to nick every last penny from their customers.
