What is the chance level accuracy in unbalanced classification problems?

Suppose one has a balanced classification problem (50% of 0's and 50% of 1's). In such a case, the so called chance-level accuracy of classifier would be 50%.

What is the chance-level accuracy if the problem is an unbalanced one (e.g. 25% of 0's and 75% of 1's). Is it still 50%? If one would guess each group to be 1 then one would achieve 75% accuracy. However, assigning groups randomly would still (?) give 50% correct on average.

I'm using SVMs for the classification and 10-fold cross-validation for performance estimation if it matters.

The performance of a random classifier depends on the fraction of times it predicts positive, e.g. $P(\hat{y} = 1)$. A random model essentially means a model whose predictions $\hat{y}$ are independent of the true label $y$, which means: $$P(\hat{y} = 1\ |\ y = 1) = P(\hat{y} = 1),$$ and $$P(y = 1\ |\ \hat{y} = 1) = P(y = 1).$$ The probability of being right, that is the expected accuracy is then: $$P(\hat{y} = y) = P(\hat{y} = 1) P(y = 1) + P(\hat{y} = 0) P(y = 0).$$ If the dataset is imbalanced, then the 'random' model with the best expected accuracy is the one that always predicts the majority class, with expected accuracy equal to the fraction of data in the majority class.
