UBET is a nice betting platform that gets the job done when it comes to the whole betting experience. Their user interface is good without being great, and some of the bigger players have a broader offering, however, UBET's promotional offering keeps them in the race.
Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5.
UBET is a major player in Australia and has retail outlets in four states of Australia – Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory. It also controls the tote in those states. The company has been around in its current form since 2015 but prior to that had come about through a merger between Tattsbet and UniTAB in 2006. Tote Tasmania was acquired in 2011 with the company then known as TattsBet until its branding was changed to UBET in late 2014.
In late 2017, it was announced that UBET (through its parent company Tatts) would merge with its biggest competitor in the retail space – TAB (Tabcorp). Between them, they now have control of retail outlets in six of the seven Australian states with Western Australia being the exception.
UBET has plenty going for it including Bonus Bet, Free Bets and Ubet + Rewards.
