History of Unibet

Unibet LogoUnibet started out life in 1997, and first took bets online in 1999. Their website started out in English and Swedish.

The company then expanded quickly, becoming Unibet Group PLC with a betting license in Malta. In 2004, Unibet had over 300,000 registered customers spread over 100 countries.

Back in 2012, Unibet agreed to the purchase of Betchoice in Australia for around $25 million. Betchoice was rebranded as Unibet, bringing the excellent European service to Australians for the first time. This multi award winning bookmaker comes highly recommended as a place to bet.

Unibet Website

We love the Unibet.com.au website, especially the racing section. It's one of the more colourful and well designed betting experiences.

In a similar vein to the other European betting giant Bet365, Unibet has designed their website to take up the full width of the screen, allowing tons of information to be displayed.

Betting on Sports

Unibet Sports

Finding the event you want to bet on at Unibet is super simple. Given the sheer amount of information on the home screen, you're never more than a couple of clicks away from an event.

With popular sports listed down the left menu, the number of markets is also listed. All upcoming markets are listed in the middle section, for major sports. 

Unibet Mobile

When it comes to the number of markets offered, Unibet competes well with the big boys such as Sportsbet and BetEasy. One thing we love is the "Genius Facts" you'll see once you're on an event, giving you an insight with some statistics you might not have been aware of.

You can narrow down betting trends by year, and all-time, for all the major sports from AFL to Soccer, to NFL as you see in our screenshot.

You may also notice a UTV logo next to certain events. This means the event is available for live streaming through Unibet's excellent UnibetTV product.

The number of sports and markets offered at Unibet is top of the industry. You'll find some of the more obscure sports and events you can think of, and now they have an Australian presence, all your Aussie Rules, NRL and NBL needs are also covered.

Racing at Unibet

Unibet excels with their racing product. They offer every Australian thoroughbred, greyhound and harness race, along with a ton of overseas racing including England, USA, South Africa and even Indian and Canadian racing.

Unibet Racing

You'll see from the screenshot that the racing main screen is presented fantastically, with the upcoming three races listed along the top. This can be narrowed down to your preferred race type, if you're just a horses person or a dogs punter.

Once you've selected the race you want to bet on, there are further options such as speed maps, and detailed form.

The Unibet form guide offers the latest ten outings for each runner with comments. Each race also comes with tips for the first four and a race summary.

Unibet don't price up every single group one race for the season as some bookmakers do, but the main carnival races are all there.

We love the sliders on expert edge, which allow you to indicate which factors you tihnk are more important when picking a winner - then the system will give you a prediction based on your input!

Unibet Expert Edge

We also like the 'spread portal' which shows you at a glance which teams are leading against the spread (as well as W/L, under/over and more) in major leagues such as NBA, EPL, NFL and more.

This really is a great addition to the Unibet product range.
