It’s exciting times for UBET who have recently merged with TAB to form one of the biggest wagering companies in the world. While the merger is still in it’s infancy, UBET itself is still a big player in its own right. Currently, UBET has retail outlets in four Australian states as well as an app, mobile and desktop offering. While they are restricted in terms of their promotions and giveaways thanks to legislation surrounding their wagering licence, account customers can still get some great benefits such as bonus bets and special offers. These can be found in the ‘account’ section of the site and through their rewards program that gives punters the opportunity to redeem their points for bonus bets. The great thing when redeeming points is the process is instant, meaning customers can bet within minutes!
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 is a nice betting platform that offers lucrative Bonus Bet offers for its account customers who are members of their rewards program. Their user interface is good without being great but overall, UBET gets the job done when it comes to the whole betting experience. There is no doubt that some of the bigger players in the market have a bigger offering than UBET, however, it seems as though they are playing a space they are comfortable with.
