FOX Bet App
Two of the biggest names in entertainment and media, Fox News & The Stars Group, bring to you FOX Bet. They are one of the newest sportsbooks offering up wagering opportunities online and on dedicated apps for Android and iOS. This new Sportsbook is now live and available in New Jersey, Colorado, & Pennsylvania. The Stars Group (owners of PokerStars) have over 41 million players around the globe under the brands, this operator must be doing something right.
We look at the FOX Bet app (previously called BetStars) in more detail with our official review and download guide for the app. We will run you through the FOXBet Sportsbook features, along with banking and support information. You will find all you need to get started placing your wagers on the FOX Bet NJ app. To download the app to your mobile, just follow these easy steps:
To get the app, first, make your playing account at www.foxbet.com. Then when signed in, click on View in the app banner at the top of the page. Press OK on the pop up to install the FOXBetUSNJ.apk. Let the APK download, then click Open. Launch the app, log in and then you can place your bets.
To get the app on your iPhone or iPad, go to the mobile site & create your account at www.foxbet.com. When you are logged in, click the banner at the top of the page. This will take you to the dedicated iTunes app page. Press GET and let the app install and you’re ready to go.
Please note: Currently, in the US, the Google Play store does not allow any forms of real money gambling or wagering apps to be published & made available. This may change in the future, but to get the official Android app, download the FOX BET APK in NJ, CO or PA as per the instructions above.
The FOX Bet sportsbook app comes in quite a large file (around 90mb) for both iOS & Android, so just be patient while it downloads, it is worth the wait. Anyone can download the app, but to use it, you do need to be in New Jersey, Colorado, or Pennsylvania state borders and be 21 or over to place a wager. As part of the PokerStars network, this operator has been providing players with a safe and secure place to gamble online for over 15 years. BetStars are big over in Europe and are looking to continue their success with their sports betting app for NJ, CO, and PA bettors.
Joining the online and mobile sportsbook is easy and takes under 5 minutes to do so. You can create a betting account at foxbet.com and be ready to wager on the NFL in a matter of minutes. Just make sure you have your SSN, name, DOB, address, and cell number handy. Then its a matter of choosing a username, setting up a password, and you’re good to go.
FOX Bet mobile app
If downloading the relatively large app is not for you, then the alternative is the FOX Bet mobile site, which you can use on any mobile or tablet, just by going to www.foxbet.com. The site has a responsive design, meaning you can use it on any cell or tablet and it will work perfectly. You can add the link to your Home screen or even save it in your favorites/bookmarks so you can access the SportsbookSportsbook in a few taps of the screen. Is there any difference between the mobile site and the Android/iPhone app from FOX Bet? Well, there are a few subtle differences, but the main functions are still the same. Push notifications and quick logins are the main advantages of the downloaded app, but if you can live without these, there aren’t many significant differences.
The sports available to bettors are one of the biggest of any New Jersey or Pennsylvania Sportsbook. You get to wager on Baseball, Basketball, Boxing/UFC, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Football, Golf, Hockey, Motor Sports, Rugby Union, Soccer, and Tennis. Currently, there is no book in the Garden State, offering this many betting opportunities. You can tell that the FOX Bet Sportsbook Android app has taken a lot of inspiration from European bookmakers when designing and setting up the mobile app. By incorporating more sports, more opportunities, and more markets, they hope this is going to be the number 1 online choice for NJ & PA punters. When we say we are very impressed with the app, it is an understatement…………..it rocks.
To be sure you are in the state boundaries, location services on your device will need to be turned on. This allows geo-locating software to make sure you are within the regulated state. It is normal and has to be done to prove where you are. The Fox Bet Android app and iPhone app do really look the part. We love the easy on the eye design and even a rookie can pick it up and use it right away.
One of the things we love about FOX Bet is the welcome bonus. You can claim it online with your laptop/PC or the awesome mobile site. Up for grabs is a $500 risk-free bet and a $500 deposit bonus. To qualify, all you need to do is place your first sports bet, and if your first settled bet loses, you can get a refund as a Free Bet up to $500. Just go to www.foxbet.com to find out more. T&C applies, and the offer is only available to new customers aged 21 and over. You don’t need a Promo code to claim this offer when joining. Registration is pretty quick, and you will need your standard info to join.
That’s not the only bonus available with the book. Once signed up, users can wager $25 per week on any event on any day and get back $5 in free bets. There are lot’s of other promos available with FOX Bet too including;
Tuesday Happy Hour – Play during Tuesday Happy Hour, and you can win free bets
Parlay Bonus – Get bonus money on all parlays
Saturday Super Boost – Enjoy bigger odds on key NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS or NCAAF single or parlay bets
When we checked the NFL playoffs odds and NFL picks, they were very similar to those found on DK and FanDuel.
There is pretty much a promo of some sort available every day with the Sportsbook, and it is well worth checking out on the dedicated Promos area on the site and app.
Now down to the real stuff, the FOX Bet sportsbook Android & iPhone app. This application is large in size, mainly because it packs in so much. There are plenty of unique features available with the book that sets it apart from the competition. It is great to see that they are not just relying on the FOX Bet brand and making an exceptional sportsbook app for New Jersey bettors. The options and features available are identical on the Android & iOS versions of the applications, so don’t feel like you are missing out by having the other platform. When opening up the app, we are confident you will like what you see. The layout is spot on and lets you find what you want to bet on and do it quickly.
If you are new to online wagering, don’t panic. This app is one of the easier to use and navigate. When you first launch the app, you will land on the Home screen. This is like the hub of the app, and we think it looks pretty great. The overall design and feel of the app just works. Here you can find Highlights of the days wagering opportunities, popular #Custombet options, Odds Boost as well as upcoming and In-Game action. A lot is going on, but once you scroll through and familiarize yourself with the setup, it’s effortless to use.
We will look at the big features mentioned above in a bit more detail below. There are a few menus on the app, one in the top left, which lets you navigate to My Stars, Casino, Poker, Withdraw, Deposit, Tickets, Challenges, Account Stats, Responsible Gambling & Join. If your focus is on the Sportsbook, you probably won’t use this menu much as all you can be found on the home screen and the smaller menu on the right. This gives you a full A-Z of sports, and all of the popular ones are located on the top of the app screen, including In-Game, MLB, MLS, Baseball, Golf, and Tennis.
The Stars Group, who are behind FOX Bet and BetStars, have won several awards for their apps, so it should come as no surprise that this one is perfect and designed with the bettor in mind. The overall design is one of the best we have seen, and placing bets is so simple. There are several bet types available with the bookie, including the most popular Straight bets, Parlays and Round-robins. It is rapid to make a straight bet, and parlays are just as easy to put on to. Unsure about the difference between the bet types? Well, there is a handy beginner betting guide in-built on the app, which is a good place to start learning.
Feature-wise, the FOXBet mobile app has it all going on. Let us introduce you to #CustomBet. With this option, you can get the bet you want by tweeting to @FoxBet using the hashtag #CustomBet, and they will price your personalized bet requests. In terms of what you can request special prices on, sports and markets are limited at the minute, but this will be expanding very soon! This customizing your bet is huge over in Europe, and we expect more US sportsbooks to incorporate soon this option going forward. Let you betting imagination go wild and pick any combo of bets, final score, first goalscorer, cards, corners, you pick the bet.
FOX Sports has also recently rolled out a new, national free-to-play sports prediction game for US players. It is called The FOX Sports Super 6 and is the 2nd major component of the broadcaster’s partnership with The Stars Group. The game challenges players to predict the outcome of six Football games, with the chance to win hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash each week.
Still not enough? Well, there is also the unique Spin and Bet option too. With this feature, you can multiply your winnings by up to 10 times! Place your wager, look for the Spin & Bet option, spin the wheel, and see if you can boost your winnings. You can also bet In-game while the action is live on the app. In-Play or In-Game betting is quickly becoming a favorite way for punters to have a wager. Cash-out is also another great option available to bettors. With this, you can cash your bet early to lock in your profits if you don’t think it will land. Had $20 on the Patriots to win but don’t think they will during the game? Simply tap the cash out button and get some of your cashback. This mobile Sportsbook does come complete with all the bells and whistles that you need in a top gambling app.
If you look in the main menu, you can see icons/links to PokerStars and PokerStars casino. You only need one shared wallet to play on any of these other apps, so if you have a FOX Bet account, you can download the poker app, log in, and find a table. Tap on the icons, and you can download the apps from the dedicated sites then log in with your FOX Bet account details.
All these great features make gambling on the go so smooth. Just pull out your cell, launch the app, and get your wager on. Bet at home, in the stadium, at the bar, anywhere…….as long as you are in NJ, you can back your favorite team wherever you want!
What could be improved on the app?
While we feel the app from FOX Bet NJ & PA is the complete gambling app available to bettors, some may feel a little flustered at all the available options. We like the layout and design on the mobile app, but at first, it may seem a bit daunting. It does take a minute or two to familiarize yourself with the setup. We would love to see more prop bet options and an increased amount of bet types too. There is a lack of English Football betting markets also which we expect to be rectified over the next few months. While In-game betting is available, the options are pretty limited at the minute, but again these will improve in the future with more markets added.
Previously called BetStars, FOX Bet is a big improvement on the old design and set up.
The Sportsbook offers several ways for customers to get help should you need any assistance. There is a live chat facility available on the app, which is always our preferred choice to get in touch. But you can also call and email. A handy FAQ and support tab on the app will answer most of your questions, but if you still need assistance, you can contact them 24/7, 365 days a year.
Managing your account and cash is easy on the app. The minimum deposit is $10, and the minimum withdrawal is $20 with the book. You can definitely tell this book comes from a family that is already a well-established gambling outfit, they offer lots of deposit and withdrawal options, including:
- Instant eChecks (electronic funds transfer)
- Stars Transfer
- Credit/Debit Cars
- PayNearMe at 7-Eleven & CVS Pharmacy stores
- Cash at the Resorts AC casino cage
- FOX Bet Play+ Card
How long dow withdrawals take with FOX Bet? All withdrawals are subject to a 48 hour hold period, then processed. It will then typically take between 1-5 days to reach your account:
- Skrill – Withing a few minutes
- PayPal – Withing a few minutes
- Bank Transfer – Up to 5 business days
Is Fox Bet Legal?
FOX Bet is legal and now live across three US states. They are available for online, and mobile betting in:
New Jersey – Regulated by the Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE). They are licensed through a partnership with the Resorts Casino, Atlantic City.
Pennsylvania – The operator is licensed via a partnership between The Stars Group and Mount Airy Casino in Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania. They are regulated by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB).
Colorado – The sportsbook is legal in CO and regulated by the state’s Gaming Control Commission (LGCC). The operator is in partnership with Eldorado Resorts.
We expect the operator to be available in more states across the country very soon. As a regulated operator, you can bet and play with them in confidence. The app and websites have security software in place to protect user data.
When two heavyweights come together, there is always going to be a lot of noise. The FOX Bet app is one of the standout sports betting mobile operators in NJ, PA & CO. We love the design of the mobile app and how easy it is to use. The NFL odds are always comparatively priced and they offer a generous range of sports to bet on.
FOX Bet is a legal US online sportsbook. They operate online as well as on mobile via a mobile site and also apps for the iPhone & Android devices. The operator is a collaboration between the FOX Sports group and The Stars Group.
FOX Bet is currently available in two US states, these are New Jersey and Pennsylvania. You can sign up to FOX Bet from any state but you need to be within NJ or PA state borders for your wager to go through.
Yes they do but you can not place any bets with it. To wager with FOX Bet, you need to download the app for either Android or iOS. Whilst there is a mobile site, it is only used for downloading the app. You can bet online on the full website from a laptop or PC but will be required to use a Geolocator plugin to confirm your location.
