Melbourne Cup Betting Offers Unibet

Unibet has recently launched a brand new racing platform for those who want to bet on horse races. It promises daily odds boosts called Daily Uniboosts and Unibet Uplifts to qualifying customers (T&Cs apply).

So far, there is limited info about which events, or if a specific race, will be eligible for the promotions so we cannot confirm that Melbourne Cup bets will qualify. The operator refers customers to the Promotions page for any new information so we’ll make sure to keep a close eye and update our page if you think you might want to bet with Unibet.

There are no available Unibet offers for new customers. Check the bookmaker’s site to read more. Any additional info on bets on specific horses, the different bets available, etc. for this legendary Australian event will be available there.

Melbourne Cup FAQ

For any additional questions about the Melbourne Cup betting offers and other general questions about the event, we have prepared a short FAQ section.

When Is the Melbourne Cup?

The Melbourne Cup is held annually on the first Tuesday in November. This year, the horse racing event will take place at Flemington on November 7th. The race itself will start at 3 pm AEDT (2:30 pm ACDT, 2 pm AEST, 1:30 pm ACST, 12 pm AWST).

Where to Watch the Melbourne Cup Live?

If you want to follow the progress of each horse on the day, the Melbourne Cup will be streamed by a number of media outlets and your options will mostly depend on your location. In Australia, you’ll be able to follow the event live on the day on Channel 7 and Foxtel, two of the main Australian media outlets, as well as their respective websites and apps.

There are also a number of betting operators who offer a live streaming service so you can expect to find it there. You should, however, have in mind that in order to give you access to live streams of sporting events, the operators will require you to have a registered account and a positive account balance. This could be a barrier for some users so make sure to verify everything is ready in advance. The availability will also be region-locked so you won’t be able to access it outside the country.

Outside Australia, people living in the UK, IR and NZ will be able to follow the action live on TV through Sky Racing and Fans in other countries will have to check with local cable service providers or tune into a radio broadcast, if they want to listen for free, to find out how they can watch this horse race.

How Can I Find Melbourne Cup Betting Offers?

Most of the Melbourne Cup offers can be found on operators’ websites, however, there are no current new customer offers. If you plan to bet on the Melbourne Cup, it is always a good idea to compare the offers and odds of a few different operators. As we have already mentioned, in order to see the actual promotional offers, you’ll have to register as a new user. Although it’s free to do so, the easiest way to do it is to follow articles such as this one.

What Kind of Offers Can I Expect?

There are no Melbourne cup betting offers available for new customers. We’ll update this page with the latest updates from operators as the big day approaches. The offers will vary from one operator to another. In general, you can expect different Melbourne cup odds, stakes, additional funds, betting funds, etc. Every year, major operators get increasingly creative when it comes to major events with high stakes, like this one, so we are sure that this years’ offers won’t disappoint.

What is the Melbourne Cup Field 2023?

This year’s Melbourne Cup Field and track will be announced in October.

What horse/runner is most likely to win the Melbourne Cup 2023?

It is still too early to say which horse, or horses, could be the favourite to be the winner of this Australian race in November, however, horses trained by Joseph O’Brien normally do very well. His horses will most likely have good odds if you’re looking for a runner to bet on. Kerrin McEvoy, who has won three Melbourne Cup races in the past, could be seen riding Tiger Moth, trained by O’Brien, which might lead to him adding a fourth win on top of his current trifecta.

Which horses will be competing?

The almost-concrete order of entry will be revealed in October, letting you know which runners you’ll be able to bet on. Due to potential last-minute injuries, the final listing won’t be 100% certain until the day of the race.

Where can I place a bet on the Melbourne Cup 2023?

You can bet with any of the bookmakers we mentioned above.
