Since the bookmakers devote considerable resources to obtaining new members, we thought it only fair to make brief mention of those offered by Unibet.


Unibet accepts funding deposits via PayPal, BPay, POLi, MasterCard and Visa, a more than an adequate number of options. We assume that withdrawals, due to anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism efforts, are in-kind withdrawals.

With regard to wagering and payout limitations, Unibet’s are typical for the industry, where big plungers will find restrictions designed to discourage the professionals who could potentially win more than Unibet can tolerate. The Terms and Conditions page on the website is where we learned that the maximum a client can win from any combination of bets is $200,000.00. Those one or two of you punters that backed Prince of Penzance at 100: 1 in last year’s Melbourne Cup therefore had hopefully limited your Unibet stake to less than $1,000, however, because Unibet winnings on race betting to $100,000.

One area where Unibet truly shines is the lack of a turnover requirement on deposited funds.

Unibet margin is slightly above the average for Australian bookmakers, and by slight, we mean 5.1 percent compared to 4.9 percent. With regard to odds, Offer Sports Betting, Casino Games, Bingo, Poker the differential for most of the popular markets is negligible.

The Unibet wagering interface presents the familiar and intuitive three-column layout. Three tabs immediately beneath the Unibet logo and the login header of the home page offer a simple way to select sports, live betting and racing.

The centre column showing odds was very easy to navigate and did not seem cluttered. Clicking on a market opened a gloriously simple betting slip listing the odds of the selected market, a box to input the desired stake and a calculation of the potential payout.

A link in the left-most column provided easy access to a nice Unibet feature, which was the ability to live stream various events by clicking on “Unibet TV.”

The thoroughbred racing section of the Unibet site was a bit crowded, but given the number of tracks and meetings, this is something to which racing punters are well accustomed. Domestic and international racing, including trotters and dogs, are well covered.

Unibet has also been thorough when it comes to mobile wagering. They have operating system specific apps for iOS and Android, along with our favourite mobile method, a mobile version of the website that is compatible across all platforms. The mobile offering also includes the ability to stream live video, and Unibet markets the ability to view over 30,000 events.

Like other domestic bookmakers, Unibet offers a wide range of promotions. Racing punters will enjoy the Protest Payout and the Dead Heat Payout.

As we mentioned earlier, Unibet does not disclose sports promotions to anyone not registered for an account.


Unibet is one of the largest online betting operators giving clients sports betting including pre match and live betting, to over 14.1 million clients in over than 101 countries.

Many of Australia’s online bookmakers have taken the prudent course, out of a deliberate and welcome decision, or otherwise in some cases, of being assimilated by larger European based operations.

This is the case for more than a few home grown Australian bookmakers, as Sportsbet, Sportingbet, Centrebet and IASbet have in the not too distant pass be acquired.

Rather than engage in a jingoistic discussion of the merits, or lack thereof, of this reality in the ever-evolving reality of online commerce, we propose to have a look at once such assimilation, that of Sweden based Unibet Group and Betchoice, the 2001 brainchild of Sydney bookmakers Colin Tidy and Mark Morrissey.

The two combined in 2012 and still retains quite a few of the remnants of the previous regime, while offering the advantages of major corporate international backing.

The combination of Betchoice and Unibet has proven a good one, and today the Australian end of the operation holds a Northern Territory license with an office outside Sydney in Baulkham Hills, NSW and a call centre in Darwin.

Including all the operations of Unibet, they can claim a customer base of nearly seven million punters and have been the recipients of numerous awards for excellence in betting operations and live betting.

Unibet would make a good choice for those who punt only occasionally and could need to withdraw their funds without risk of penalty fees. Accepting low online wagers is another appealing factor for most punters. There is a more than adequate number of markets for domestic and international events.

Some punters might find the website slightly barren, but it is certainly highly functional, if not the prettiest.

Those who place any degree of faith in reputation will find in Unibet a nice combination of a locally licensed bookmaker backed by the resources of a major international company.

There are other limitations specific to different markets and Unibet does claim the right to vary wagering limits.

Unibet does offer live betting, but as is the case with Australian licensed bookmakers, punters need to phone their live bets in and cannot make them online. On a day when the NFL was in action, we discovered 465 live markets, certainly a respectable number, but it paled when scrolling down the page, we saw almost 19,000 live soccer markets. It may be possible to wager on the inflation pressure, in metric or imperial measurements, of the actual soccer balls.
