UBET was known as TattsBet before early 2015 - when its owner, Tatts Group, rebranded it. The name UBET echoes a colloquial Australian phrase meaning "of course" - and that name is also making its way to 1,200 retail outlets that the Tatts Group runs in Australia.
UBET's combination of online and brick-and-mortar offerings can help it to counter the emerging threat of corporate bookmakers. However, the site in isolation is enough to grab attention; it allows users to bet on 23 different sports, while its support for one language, English, and one currency, AUD, makes clear how committed it is to catering specifically for Australians.
Despite its unoriginal use of black and green, UBET's colour scheme - in which the green elements look pleasingly vivid - is a strong factor behind the appeal of the site as a whole. That layout is convenient; hover your cursor over 'Racing' or 'Sports', to the right of the UBET logo, for an at-a-glance overview of the opportunities for betting.
So, what exact sports does the overview mention? Too many to list in full here, but the ones that users are likely to flock to first include Australian rules, golf, tennis and soccer.
We reckon that many different tastes can be satisfied by what is on offer here - including cycling, cricket, ice hockey, surfing and mixed martial arts. Nevertheless, you don't have to look too far for an even better choice.
The support options are fairly generous on UBET. You get a Help Centre that is very well-served with articles capable of answering a myriad of questions. If all else fails, you can fire a question through the Contact page's form titled 'SEND AN EMAIL'.
The UBET site has a 'LIVE' section that can be easily clicked through to from the main page. That 'LIVE' section shows up-to-date data about matches that are currently happening. Given that Australia has outlawed live betting online, that betting has to happen through a phone call to a particular number.
UBET also offers iPhone and Android mobile apps through which non-live bets can be placed – and attached to the iPhone app is an Apple Watch app.
Click 'Promos', not far from UBET's logo on the site's homepage, and you can read about Multi Builder, which allows you to use the UBET app to rapidly produce sport multis. The page also details Cash Out, a promotion where you can cash out on particular bets ahead of an event ending.
Scroll down the Promos page, and you can also find out about UBET+ Rewards, through which you can enjoy fresh and exclusive offers if you are a member of that scheme.
When the time comes to place a deposit, you can do so with one of these:
A bank transfer is your sole option when you wish to withdraw funds.
Once you have requested a withdrawal, the money might take as long as three business days to reach your bank account.
So, should UBET on UBET? We can, in response, confidently say "yes". The online channel, particularly paired with the retail offering, is compelling. A slick design of many quickly loading pages is key to UBET being one of the best sports betting sites for Australian customers.
