Unibet Australia Review
Below is an honest Unibet Australia review, including our user experience for sports and racing markets on the site, the history of Unibet Australia, and the pros and cons of using the Unibet website.
This Unibet Australia review will be updated through new versions of the site, new offers and unique features that Unibet have to offer Australian punters.
Who are Unibet Australia?
Founded back in 1997, Unibet are based in Malta, although their Australian side are licensed and regulated in the Northern Territory. The owning company of Unibet is Unibet Group plc, who are listed on the NASDAQ OMX Nordic Exchange in Sweden.
Unibet has enjoyed a history of great success, enabling them to make a number of acquisitions of other online bookmakers, including the Australian gambling site Betchoice in 2012.
Despite the rebranding, all Unibet.com.au deposits are still made to the company name Betchoice and “Betchoice Corporation Pty Ltd.” is listed at the bottom of each page. Betchoice’s administration office is located in Baulkham Hills, NSW and their call centre is located in Darwin, NT.
Betchoice was then rebranded as Unibet Australia and is one many of Unibet sites around the globe.
All Unibet.com.au deposits are still made to the company name Betchoice, located in Baulkham Hills, NSW, with a call centre in Darwin.
If you look in the footer of the Unibet site you will see the following –
“This website is operated by Unibet/Betchoice Corporation Pty Ltd. ABN 71 121 382 607”
It is not unusual for an Australian bookmaker to have a foreign owner, with Sportsbet another example.
Unibet Australia is an approved wagering partner of the AFL, NRL, ARU (Australian Rugby Union), Cricket Australia, PGA Australia, Tennis Australia, Netball Australia and the UFC.
Unibet Sports Markets
Unibet’s have an elite selection of sports markets, with 11,000+ sports markets available at the time of review. Along with the usual Aussie sports, American sports and world soccer leagues, markets are also available for everything from politics to surfing to reality television.
The selection of betting markets per match fixture is larger than the majority of other Australian bookmakers, with 125 markets per game on average.
Unibet was one of the first Australian bookmakers to offer betting markets on Australian domestic soccer leagues other than the A-League, with the NSW Premier League, SA Premier League and Western Premier League available for wagering.
Unibet Live Betting
Unibet Australia is licensed in Australia, and for this reason they can only offer live betting over the phone. However you will be able to view real-time odds and easily place your bet using the live betting interface shown below.
The live betting page is neatly laid out, with odds updating in real-time and colour-coded with arrows to indicate the direction of recent odds adjustments.
Unibet Live Streaming
A large range of sports are available to watch with the Unibet Live Streaming function, with every game in the NBA to Grand Slam tennis, select soccer leagues and a whole lot more (check their live betting page to see the latest offerings). If you’re looking for a particular sport, you can see all upcoming live streaming options via the Unibet live streams calendar, with the ability to search by sport or by day.
Toenjoy Unibet live streaming you need is to have a funded Unibet account or have placed a bet with within the previous 24 hrs. Once you have taken care of either of these requirements, you’ll be able to access and stream up to 30,000 events broadcast each year via your desktop or mobile device.
Unibet Racing Markets
The Unibet racing page is simple, but that’s why we like it.
The main screen displays a table of upcoming racing events including thoroughbred, greyhound and harness racing across Australia, NZ and Singapore. The table is coded by colour to highlight racing events that are due to start or “Next to Jump”, making it easier to find the upcoming racing markets and place your bets faster.
Fixed, Best Tote+SP, Tote+5/10% and Top Fluc odds are available for win betting while fixed, Best Tote and Tote+5%/10% odds are available for place betting.
Along with win and place betting markets, Quinella, Exacta, Trifecta and Quadrella betting is available. Odds changes are displayed next to each runner, and decent form guides along with barrier, weight, jockey and trainer details are available for most thoroughbred racing events.
Overall the Unibet racing betting markets are easy to find, with enough analysis and options to please even the pro racing punters.
Most bookmakers try to attract new bettors through hefty sign up bonuses. Unfortunately, Unibet falls a little short in the generosity department (this won’t mean a lot once inducements are removed from online wagering).
Daily and Weekly Promotions
Unibet offer a range of daily and weekly promotions for sport and racing, and as with most online Australian bookmakers, these will change according to their budget and state of customer acquisition. For example, heading into the Spring Racing Carnival is when the bookies really throw all of their money around.
To find out the latest Unibet sports and racing promotions it’s best to head to their site and find out what’s new.
They also offer a range of sports and racing competitions including their “Unibet Streak” promotion –
Unibet Streak is a product for Aussie Punters.
How to play Unibet Streak:
- Build up the longest winning streak each month from a range of different match-ups.
- The player with the longest winning streak each month wins the Top Prize.
- Invite your mates and create your own Private Group where you can challenge each other.
We love these kinds of competitions, and they do add an element of excitement out of the usual daily betting grind for punters.
Unibet Mobile App
With punters using their smart phone as the preferred method to place bets and stream sports and racing, the demand for an elite mobile app is live or die for any bookmaker and and Unibet delivers.
With the Unibet app and to a lesser extent, their responsive mobile site, you can bet on thousands of sports and racing markets, with the added ability to live stream over 10,000 sporting and racing events via Unibet TV.
Unibet don’t just have a desktop site, it also have one of the best mobile experiences around.
