The rise of online giant Unibet!Saturday, Mar 10, 2018 15:00
Unibet’s HQ is based in Malta, with the Australian branch of its operation regulated and licensed in the country's Northern Territory. The company is expanding by the day, with more than 14 million customers worldwide, while it is widely recognised as one of the largest online gambling operators in the European market.
Unibet came to Australia in 2012 when the company purchased the Australian-based bookmaker Betchoice. Betchoice was set up in Sydney by bookies Mark Morrissey and Colin Tidy in 2001.
In 2006, Betchoice acquired a licence in the Northern Territory and in 2012 all existing accounts with Betchoice were moved over and rebranded to Unibet Australia following the takeover.
Banking at Unibet
There are fool-proof ways for every punter to deposit and withdraw funds from their online Unibet account, with multiple methods meaning there is something to suit every punter. The most common method of depositing funds is a credit or debit card which ensures the funds show immediately in your account.
POLi is also ideal as it requires no credit card, all you need is an online banking account in your own name. From there, the POLi add-on can use your bank account online and can immediately transfer the cash into your betting account.
Electronic fund transfer is another common method of depositing funds which can be done online or over the phone. The only downfall is it can take almost two days for the funds to appear in your betting account. This method is the most commonly supported way of withdrawing funds from your betting account, with a similar period of time usually between when the cash leaves your account and when it appears back in your bank account.
The team at Unibet want to ensure customers have the best possible betting experience through their sleek app available to iOS and Android users on both tablet and mobile devices. The app is easy to navigate, with the same racing and sports options available, and has clear menus to help you place a bet, manage the funds in your account and even stream live sporting events. In total, punters can watch more than 30,000 events across the year including tennis, football and the NBA. You can also stream live audio for racing events in Australia and New Zealand.
