Unibet Australia Review

The Unibet brand was first established back in Sweden in 1997, so it’s by no means a newcomer to the industry. It’s part of the Kindred Group, one of the world’s largest online gambling companies, alongside several other notable brand names including 32Red, Stan James Online and Bet24.

Its entry into the Australian online betting market came about in 2012 when the Kindred Group acquired the Australian-owned Betchoice. This was rebranded to become Unibet Australia using the url unibet.com.au to highlight that it is a legitimate operator within the country. 

Unibet has won multiple EGR awards for its online sportsbook and it has established a reputation as a trusted and reliable operator among it many loyal customers. The Australian arm is operated by the Unibet/Betchoice Corporation Pty Ltd which has a registered office at Fannie Bay Racecourse and is licenced and regulated by the Northern Territory Government.

Unibet Australia Football Betting Tips

The number of markets within each sport shows that Unibet Australia is one of the top online bookmakers around. AFL matches have more than 130 betting options such as totals, lines, margins, players, halves and quarter markets. 

Rugby league (NRL) punters can pick from 70+ markets. The coverage of international action is acceptable, with 140 EPL markets, 50 MLB markets, 20 US Open match markets. Even smaller events have good coverage, for instance soccer matches from Serie B in Brazil offer 70 markets for punters.

We tested the odds at Unibet by choosing a few random events and comparing them against other online bookmakers. It should be noted that both Thiem and GWS are the underdogs in their respective matches. The price on the favourites was slightly better than the other two bookies.

Unibet Australia Horse Racing Betting Tips & more

It’s impossible to be classified as a top bookmaker in Australia if racing is not comprehensively covered. Unibet joins the list of online bookmakers that offer all Australia and New Zealand races spanning the three different forms. There is also a respectable amount of international racing covered, with action from tracks in the UK, USA, Ireland, France, India and South Africa.

One of Australia’s biggest betting events is the Melbourne Cup, and you can place your bet on this race anytime throughout the year by looking at the ‘futures’ markets. Many other famous Australian races are also readily available for ante post betting, such as: Caulfield Cup, Turnbull Stakes, Cox Plate, Golden Slipper Stakes, The Everest, Thousand Guineas and the Epsom Handicap to name a few.

The clear interface at Unibet makes finding your race and having a punt very easy. Another nice feature is that you can flick to change the bet slip from single to multi to exotics. This makes things much tidier compared to a stacked list like most other platforms use. All of the usual bet types are available, including: win and place fixed odds, best Tote, mid Tote, top Flucs, Quinella, Exacta, Trifecta, First Four and Quadrella.

Unibet also provides plenty of racing news and tips. There is up-to-date track information, speed maps, race previews, form guides for the whole field, expert advice, and just below the bet slip, you are given the Unibet race tip. You can listen to live racing which offers more betting news and live commentary of selected races, plus Unibet TV delivers live streaming on hundreds of races every month.

Unibet Racing Promos


Looking to offer something different, Unibet Australia has a unique ‘Owners Payout’ promotion for all horse and greyhound owners. All you have to do is register your runner with Unibet and if you place a winning bet, you’ll get 15% on your winnings - up to a tidy $3,000. It also offers Dead Heat Payouts on both winners guaranteeing punters full dividend on fixed odds win bets if a dead heat, plus Protest Payouts on the first past the post winner and the winner after the stewards’ inquiry.

All you need to do is build up the longest winning streak from a range of pre-selected match-ups. The player with the longest streak claims the top prize. Other prizes are awarded for certain achievements, so this promo offers plenty of value.

Website/Usability


In our opinion, the Unibet platform - on both desktop and mobile - is one of the best around in terms of being user-friendly. Everything is clearly presented in an orderly way which makes navigating around the site a relaxing experience. If we are going to pick a fault, it would have to be that Unibet doesn’t offer a quick build multi tool like most other sites do.

There is a 3-step quick bet function, however. Plus the smart bet slip allows punters to quickly change from placing single bets to creating a multi or punting on an exotic. For seasoned punters and beginners, a platform like this is perfect.

Unibet Australia Mobile App

The web-based mobile platform offers a pleasant mobile betting experience for Australian Unibet punters, but for that little bit extra we believe it is worthwhile downloading the Unibet mobile app.

This is available to customers with an iOS device (9.0 or later) or Android. Through the app you can bet live direct from your bet slip, watch thousands of sporting events every month and keep a track on the action with Unibet’s advanced statistics and live match visualisation screen. The app also has a 3-tap quick bet feature, slider menus listing the hottest action and a catalogue of other cool features such as detailed bet history reports and promotional offers.
