Southern Cross Bet Review March 2024

Southern Cross Bet is made by Aussies for Aussies which is a big plus straight off the bat. Southern Cross Bet is family-owned and operated by Mark Johnston, who along with his parents have been regional bookmakers for over 40 years.

Their goal is to deliver great customer service along with competitive odds and a wide-range of both racing and sporting markets, and you know what, they are pulling it off.

Being connected to the racing industry they offer an excellent service on thoroughbreds, harness and greyhounds. They also offer markets on a vast range of sports including NRL, AFL, NFL, NBA and many more.

The interface is really familiar to use as all of the newer bookmakers out there.

The promo code BETSAU is available to use when joining.

SouthernCrossBet Verdict

There is an Aussie touch to Southern Cross Bet that is enjoyable without it being too over the top. It might be a different story if they were not supplying a good service with a regional and personal feel to it.

Of course, there are different features that are missing that we have grown accustomed to from the larger bookies out there, but Southern Cross Bet is definitely worth having in your bookmaker repertoire.

SouthernCrossBet Horse Racing Review

Coming from a racing background, it is obvious that the horses are the main focus. Your eye will catch the ‘Next to Jump’ feed that goes across the top of the screen so you will never miss a race. 

The odds are competitive as you would expect and they can offer the best price in various markets. 

Small features like Top Flucs are missing, but as we have said they are developing their product by the minute at Southern Cross Bet.
