SouthernCrossBet Verdict

Reasons punters like betting with SouthernCrossBet and what the bookmaker has to offer:


  • Exclusive Promo Code BETSAU
  • 100% Australian Bookmaker

  • Good Choice of Sports Betting
  • Member Exclusive Promotions

SouthernCrossBet Sign Up Codes

When you join Southern Cross Bet you will be asked for a promo code during step 2 of the registration form. You can use the code BETSAU to make sure you get the very best offers and promotions available for members. 

The code will not unlock any form of new customer offer, however, with Australian government legislation making it illegal for any bookie to offer an incentive to customers to sign up. 


SouthernCrossBet Horse Racing & Sport Betting

The Southern Cross Bet site has a familiar look and is not too dissimilar to other online bookmakers. In fact, it has a very close association with BlueBet in terms of the look.

The interface of the sportsbook makes it very easy to dip in and out of different sports, while the racing options take pride of place on the homepage of the screen across thoroughbred, harness and greyhounds.

Other options are shown in the 'Coming Up' section on the right-hand side of the screen, while a list of big events can be found on the left of the screen for quick access.


Sports available at Southern Cross Bet include AFL, Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, Cricket, Darts, Golf, Gridiron, Ice Hockey, Mixed Martial Arts, Motor Racing, Netball, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Soccer, Tennis and more.

Placing a bet on any event is easy. Simply click on the sport or event of choice and find the market you want to wager on. After you have done this, click on the odds you like to add them to your bet slip. 

You will see your bet slip on the right of the screen, and here you can enter your stake amount before clicking to confirm your bet. It's that easy.
