CrossBet login & mobile site
The CrossBet login is available at: https://crossbet.com.au/
CrossBet Promotions are available on daily basis for existing customers. Unlike a lot of online bookmakers in Australia, the more loyal a customer you are with CrossBet, the more likely you are to receive certain promotions with this bookmaker.
Like a majority of bookies, CrossBet offer a protest payout, where they payout the first horse across the post and if the horse who finishes second is promoted to first via protest, CrossBet will pay out on both horses as a winner.
HorseBetting has a good relationship with CrossBet and will have more promotions from time to time. Remember that all CrossBet promotions are subject to terms and conditions, which you can read about at CrossBet.com.au.
CrossBet Bonus Bets
A CrossBet Bonus Bet is currently unavailable for Australians following an update to the advertising laws surrounding new betting account incentives. CrossBet bonus bet offers can only be redeemed by existing customers, or by contacting the customer support team at CrossBet to see if you are eligible for bonus bet promotions.
There is not a a CrossBet Bonus Code or Coupon Code required to claim any promotions at this horse betting operator.
Horse Racing At CrossBet in 2023
On all platforms, CrossBet’s racing section is easily accessible. Probably the most convenient way to view what races are coming up is to click the racing tab, which will then display all of the day’s races. As you scroll down this page you will see:
- Australian horse racing
- International horse racing
- Harness racing
- International harness racing
- International Greyhounds
You will also be able to navigate easily between days, with tabs across the top of this screen, supplying you with quick access today’s, tomorrow’s and the following days racing, plus a tab for Futures, Quaddies and Daily Double.
Horse betting futures markets
While CrossBet.com.au does not have as many futures markets as some of the big players in Australian online horse racing wagering, they do have markets available for some of the major group racing that is set to be featured in the Spring of 2023.
Unfortunately early days in CrossBet emergence they do not have any futures markets available on harness racing or greyhound racing, but this could very easily change, as the bookmaker finds its groove.
Having a Daily Double ticket may be a thing of the past for the new generation of punters, but many experienced punters still dabble in Daily Double markets with online betting sites. A Daily Double requires you to pick the winning runner of two of the nominated double races on the race card. Daily Double’s pay the nominated tote dividend.
Traditionally, the two legs of a Daily Double are run during the quaddie legs, with the two selected events expected to be the hardest race to find a winner in.
CrossBet.com.au only offer Daily Double markets on Australian thoroughbred racing meetings.
CrossBet.com.au sports betting review
CrossBet.com.au has a massive variety of sports betting markets available in an easy to navigate to approach.
Much the same as some of the horse betting markets, they will only improve as the bookmakers expands its user base.
What we particularly like about the sports section on CrossBet is the featured sections has the most relevant sports pushed to the customer at any point in time.
However, what lets CrossBet down in terms of sports betting is the lack of markets ready at an appropriate time. For example, it can be 9am on a Monday morning and the markets for the upcoming round of AFL and NRL are not available. Whereas competitors like Ladbrokes, Neds & Bet365 have them up a week in advance, which allows the punter to potentially gain an advantage.
If sports betting is your main play, CrossBet is probably not your go to bookmakers and we suggest heading to Ladbrokes or Bet365 for more extensive markets.
CrossBet Mobile betting and apps review
The Crossbet mobile betting platform is quite responsive and user friendly compared to a few of the newer bookies in Australia. What you get on their website version of the site on a phone, is quite similar to what you would get when using the CrossBet app. It is easy to navigate and not as clunky as you would expect a new bookmaker’s mobile betting site to be like.
Follow these steps to download the CrossBet.com.au mobile apps.
CrossBet Android App
The CrossBet Android app can be downloaded directly from CrossBet after you have opened a new CrossBet account. You may need to allow non-market apps before you can download it.
CrossBet iOS Apple App
The Play Up iOS app is available to download directly from the Apple App store for free. We recommend opening a new Crossbet account before downloading the app.
Deposit options at Crossbet in Australia
CrossBet has got plenty of deposit options for those of us based in Australia and looking to deposit AUD. All of the bookie payment methods at CrossBet are instant, except for bank transfers, that can take between 48-72 hours. The deposit options at CrossBet in Australia include:
Withdrawals at CrossBet.com.au
Cashing out or withdrawing any winnings from your CrossBet betting account is a straight-forward process.
Crossbet requires any deposits into a member’s account to be turned over at least once or ‘bet through’ before authorising a withdrawal from the Crossbet members account, which is linear with a majority of bookmakers.
Withdrawals through bank transfers with CrossBet can take up to 24-48 hours to appear in the members bank account, with transfers cut off for the day from 2pm AEST Monday-Friday. Meaning if you wish to withdraw funds on a weekend, it will not be processed until the following business day.
Verifying your CrossBet.com.au account
The account verification at CrossBet is straight-forward and mirrors that at other bookie sites. To access your verification section at CrossBet just click the verify button upon creating your new CrossBet account on the menu tab alongside your current balance.
To verify yourself you will need to choose one of three methods:
- Australian Electoral Roll
- Medicare Card
- Driver’s License
You need to be aware when doing your CrossBet verification that you will need the address the company has on record, so if you have moved recently and updated your electoral rolls, you may still need to enter in your old address.
Withdrawals from CrossBet.com.au can only be authorised once your identity is verified.
CrossBet customer service contacts
CrossBet can be reached multiple ways, with the customer service options with these including via Phone, email and their social media channels.
Seemingly if you call CrossBet.com.au with an account issue, you need to leave a message with their answering service with your email and account details and the customer service team will respond to you via email only.
Unlike a majority of competitors, Crossbet.com.au does not currently have a live chat function.
CrossBet.com.au review conclusions
The CrossBet.com.au product has plenty of potential to be a reliable betting site for horse racing punters to use on a regular basis.
With more users coming on to the platform, it will enable the bookmaker to make improvements where required, including in the customer service department.
The website may come across as basic, but they seemingly do everything right if you are just wanting to place a bet in a timely fashion.
Overall, Horsebetting.com.au recommends adding CrossBet.com.au into your betting account rotation.
