The rebranding from BetStars to FOX Bet was a major step up for this online sportsbook FOX Bet is aiming to offer not only a sportsbook, but something new, including incorporating hosts from FOX sports shows.Throughout the country, Fox Bet are partnered with a number of land based casinos in each state they opertate in. Licensed and regulated by the NJDGE, FOX Bet NJ has its skin through Resorts Casino.
Launched in September 2019 and operating under a license through its brick-and-mortar partner Mount Airy Casino, FOX Bet PA is regulated by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
FOX Bet CO launched on May 1, 2020, less than seven months after Colorado voters legalized sports betting in a ballot referendum.
With its new mobile app in tow, let’s take a closer look at FOX Bet and see if it’s something we’d recommend signing up for and gambling with.
|Custom bet option||Betting lines can be slightly inflated|
|Incredible app design||Registration process could be a bit more streamlined|
|Solid welcome offer||Customer service needs improvement|
Fox Bet offer new customers a very generous Free Bet worth $500.
Fox Bet will match your first bet up to $500 with a risk- free bet of the same amount (as long as the odds of your risk free bet is at a minimum of -200). How this works is that should the risk free bet lose, the stake of the bet will be refunded to your account as site credit. This offer applies to sports wagering only.
Registering on the mobile app is quite simple, though the steps could be a bit more condensed and not feel as laborious. Initially, there are three steps:
After this, you will be taken to a separate screen to enroll in real money wagers. Here, you’re asked for information such as your name, gender, date of birth, last four of your Social Security number, cell phone and personal details that are necessary to protect you and your account on FOX Bet.
Note that banking methods can vary by state, but this is generally what you will find.
There are no timeframes listed for neither deposit or withdrawal, but using PayPal as our cash out method, we got the money in less than 24 hours!
We've encountered plenty of online sportsbook mobile apps. We must say, FOX Bet has one of the nicest, most well-polished ones we’ve seen.
At the top of the app, there is a series of logos representing the ball used in each sport. These act as filters and upon clicking on a particular sport, it will pull up all the games for that sport and usual odds on things such as moneyline, totals and spread.
Below that, there are more wagering options, but not exactly focused on sports. There is a live betting section the futures betting section and FOX Bet’s “#CustomBet” pool. Again, depending on your selection, the games for that sport will appear.
As you continue to scroll down the page, you will notice at the bottom of the screen, there is a button for sports, and a link to access your account instantly.
There is a betslip logo that hangs out near the top-right corner of the app, and it will populate with the number of potential betting items you have, highlighted in red. Once you click on it, you can go where to wager on the game with whatever amount of cash you desire.
As mentioned the betting odds on certain things such as moneylines can be a bit high in some places. However, overall, there is plenty here to help overlook that, including custom bets. Varying odds at sportsbooks could possibly mean that some teams are getting more heavy action on the site than competitors.
In addition to live betting, cash out options and the custom bets section, FOX Bets has quite a lot to choose from.
These are just a few examples of the myriad promotions that FOX Bet does offer. There are plenty more where that came from. It’s never a bad thing to have too many promotions, I guess.
You can find all the customer support info by clicking on the “Account” logo at the bottom of the screen, and then from there, clicking on “Help”. Here, you will find the contact information, but unfortunately it appears to just be limited to an email-type form to fill out.
Don’t worry, it’s fairly easy to assume that more methods of customer support in the distant future, too.
Once again, going back to “Account”. There is a “Responsible Gaming” logo. This page is broken down into eight different categories:
FOX Bet could have easily just thrown out a couple organizations and hotlines to get in touch with, but that’s not the case whatsoever. There are plenty of dedicated information for each of the steps above.
There are some things we’re not totally keen on. These include customer support, no PayPal and sometimes the odds can be a bit higher.
FOX Bet is relatively new. It’s important to remember that. More support systems and PayPal can always be added soon, but this app and the interactivity with it is flawless. You have got to check out the newly branded FOX Bet online sportsbook on the mobile app.
