Current Promotions at Unibet

Since launching, Unibet has become very well known for offering great promotions and specials to their clients. The good thing about the promotions at Unibet though are that they are unique, from things like football jersey giveaways, to the ability to stream live sports via their webpage, plus a host of cash back offers. Check out some of the better ones below.

unibet-nba-nhlNBA & NHL Live Streaming
Not so much a promotion as it is a luxury. With only a couple of games of NBA Basketball and NHL Ice Hockey shown live on television in Australia each week, at Unibet you can stream live EVERY single match for the entire season.

unibet-stableUnibet Stable 10%
This very unique product allows you to select any three horses in Australia and add them to your stable. Every time one of your nominated horses runs Unibet will give you an additional 10% on top of your winnings should they win.

unibet-money-backMoney Back Specials
On selected races throughout the week Unibet will be offering money back specials. So in other words if you back a horse to win but it fails to win, but runs second or third, Unibet will refund your stake back into your account.

unibet-tote10Tote +10%
The flagship racing promotion at Unibet. When betting on all gallops, harness and greyhound races you will get paid out the official VIC Tote price plus an additional 10% on top of your winnings. Tote +10% is one of the best promos online.

protest-payupProtest Payout
You need not ever worry about losing via a protest again at Unibet as they payout both the interim winner as well as the official winner. So if your horse is first past the post but a protest is upheld, you will still get paid out your winnings.

Betting on Racing at Unibet

Betchoice were always regarded as one of the best racing bookmakers in Australia, but with Unibet now bankrolling the business they have lifted to another stratosphere in terms of racing products being offered. They also have a number of unique products and they are a very attractive proposition for serious racing punters.

Exclusive Racing Products at Unibet

Getting in some great racing products was number one priority when Unibet launched and we can certainly say they have achieved that. Tote +10% is their flagship product and it pays you out the Vic Tote dividend with an additional 10% on top.

Then you have products such as Starting Price Guaranteed, Best Tote, Middle Tote and Top Fluctuation. Unibet has upped the ante though with some cool promotions such as Unibet Stable, 15% Owners Bonus, Protest Payouts and Money Back Specials on selected races.


Exotic Racing Products at Unibet

If exotic racing is more your thing, then Unibet certainly have you covered. You have your standard bet types such as win, place and each way betting which you would expect. Also offered is exactas, quinellas, trifectas, first 4, multibets, doubles, trebles, quaddies and parlay bets.

Unibet also allow you to combine exactas, quinellas and trifectas into boxed multibets so you can cover more angles. Box, or flexi betting as it is known, is hugely popular these days and it is a great way to cover yourself by adding as many selections as you like to a bet.


Sports Betting at Unibet

Unibet also has a strong focus towards sports betting. In fact in terms of sheer volume of markets being offered they would rank nearly at the top of the pile in Australia. For example at time of writing there are 17,267 soccer markets, 2350 ice hockey markets and 1071 basketball markets.

Bet types offered by Unibet for sports betting include single, margin, line betting, multi betting and parlays. They also have a good live betting facility where you can place bets on the go, plus they stream every single NBA and NHL game live on their website, free of charge. This alone is a huge selling point for customers.

Unibet Website

Of all the bookmakers in Australia, we rate the Unibet website as one of the best out there. Once you first visit Unibet you will immediately think it is a lavish site as it is nice and compact with a beautiful colour scheme. Their green, black and white colour scheme looks superb and makes the website look very classy.

The homepage has a list of all their current promotions, links to the next ten races to jump and sports events kicking off, plus their latest blog posts. There is a small menu up the top that allows you to navigate to racing, sports, mobile or view your account options.

Just like traditional websites, the design is in three columns with a list of sports or racing markets on the left menu, odds are displayed in a wider middle column and the bet slip is on the right. It is a dynamic bet slip so if you have added selections and accidentally close the window, it will remember your selections next time you load the page.
