Fox Bet Review
As its name would lead you to believe, Fox Bet is owned, in part, the same Fox Corporation that broadcasts sporting events around the U.S. Fox Bet now operates its online sportsbook in three states: Colorado, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. In May 2019, Fox announced a deal with The Stars Group, a large gaming conglomerate, to launch Fox Bet. As part of the deal, Fox granted The Stars Group the rights to use certain trademarks while promoting Fox Bet.
Fox Bet has a generous new-customer bonus offer, giving you up to $1,000 to sign up. We'll detail the nitty gritty of that bonus below, but it's among the most aggressive offers in the market.

FOX Bet: Frequently Asked Questions
Where is FOX Bet Sportsbook legal?
FOX Bet operates its mobile sportsbook in both New Jersey, Pennsylvania and the new state to the sports betting scene, Colorado. It is owned by the The Stars Group (TSG) in partnership with Fox Sports.
How do I sign up for an account at FOX Bet?
Follow this link.
You’ll be asked for information that is standard in creating sports betting accounts, including your name, email address, street address, a username and password, phone number and social security number.
How do I deposit money into my FOX Bet account?
FOX Bet offers a variety of options for customers looking to deposit money, but the number of options differs a bit depending on your state.
- PayPal (NJ, PA, and CO)
Simply follow the steps in the FOX Bet deposit menu and use your PayPal account.
- Credit/Debit Card (NJ, PA and CO)
Once again, this follows the fairly standard process of using credit or debit cards online. Be aware, though, that many banks will block online gaming transactions, so you may need to try multiple cards, or reach out to your bank to attempt to resolve that issue if it arises.
FOX Bet accepts MasterCard and Visa, both of which are also available for Fast Deposits.
- Online banking (ACH) or Instant eChecks (NJ, PA, and CO)
This option allows you to deposit directly through your bank account, without entering any credit card or other financial information. Simply find “Instant eChecks” in the cashier or deposit menu (found in the Real Money tab on the mobile app) on your desktop client, app or web interface, and follow the instructions from there.
Like a normal check, eChecks do not transfer funds from your bank right away. You will see the amount of your check reflected in your playable balance, but you will not be able to transfer the money elsewhere or withdraw until the eCheck funds are actually received (which could take up to seven days).
If the eCheck funds are denied for whatever reason by your bank, you may face restrictions in the future regarding the use of eChecks.
Fast Deposits — more on those below — are also available through eChecks.
- Skrill (NJ and PA)
Skrill is essentially an electronic wallet that you can store with funds in your local currency, and it’s often an easier method of transferring money for online purchases, or in this case, to fund your FOX Bet account.
Once again, you’ll find the option to deposit using Skrill in the cashier or deposit menu, depending on which interface you’re using.
Skrill is also available to use for Fast Deposits.
- Resorts Casino Cage (NJ)
For those in or around New Jersey looking to deposit money non-electronically, you always have the option of stopping by the Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. There, you can head to the cashier cage and make your deposit in person.
The Resorts Casino is located at 1133 Boardwalk, Atlantic City, NJ, 08401.
- PayNearMe (NJ, PA and CO)
If you’re looking to add money to your account using cash without visiting a casino, the Pay with Cash option gives you that ability.
Simply click the PayNearMe option in your cashier or deposit menu, and register your account. You’ll follow steps that will lead to the creation of a PaySlip that you can bring to a 7-Eleven (along with your cash) in New Jersey, Pennsylvania or Colorado, and the clerk will be able to add your cash amount to your balance by scanning the slip.
The PaySlip can be used multiple times, as it will be personalized to only your Stars Account.
- VanillaDirect (NJ)
VanillaDirect is another cash option that involves bringing a requested barcode to a participating location.
Simply request the VanillaDirect barcode in your deposit menu, and have it scanned at one of over 50,000 retail locations nationwide, then you’ll be able to add funds to your account by paying cash, and you’ll see your account reflect the payment within minutes.
- Stars Transfer (NJ, PA, and CO)
Similar to an eCheck, the Stars Transfer avoids the use of credit/debit cards by linking up to your online banking account for a safe, fast deposit.
- PokerStars Play+ Card (NJ)
The PokerStars Play+ Card is a prepaid card that is synced to your Stars Account, making for easy deposits and withdrawals.
You can sign up for the card in the same menu you’d use to deposit funds in any other way, and once registered you’ll be able to deposit the same way.
What is “Fast Deposit”?
As it sounds, Fast Deposit is an option that allows for players to make deposits quickly — more specifically, without leaving their current game.
As you are playing a game, you may see the Fast Deposit icon pop up, meaning you have the option of instantly adding funds to your account without leaving the game.
Instant eChecks, Skrill, and credit/debit card payments are accepted for Fast Deposits.
Does FOX Bet match deposits for new customers?
Yes. FOX Bet has a one-time deposit match option for both new and existing customers.
The book will match 50% of your chosen deposit up to a $500 bonus, meaning a $1,000 deposit could result in a bonus of $500.
Beware, though, that the bonus payment will come in increments of $10 for every $250 wagered, meaning you’ll have to play through $250 several times in order to see your full bonus (depending on the amount you wagered).
It should also be noted that bets more heavily favored than -200 will not count toward your promo wager amount.
What promo code is required to get the FOX Bet deposit match?
There is no code required. Simply follow this link to their promotions page.
Does FOX Bet have any free bet offers for new customers?
Yes! Perhaps the most attractive promotion on FOX Bet is the $500 risk-free bet for first-time users. Whether your bet wins or loses, FOX Bet will match your bet (up to $500) in bonus money.
To take advantage of the offer:
- Place your first real money bet (on a sports wager no more heavily favored than -200).
- Wait (up to 24 hours) to see the amount of your bet matched.
- Within 30 days, play through (wager) the amount of your bonus on sports bets no more heavily favored than -200.
How do I withdraw money from my FOX Bet account?
To request a withdrawal, you’ll need to visit the “Cashier” menu, select “Withdraw” and enter your requested amount. The next screen will provide details on how your withdrawal will be processed.
As far as your withdrawal options, they are similar to your deposit options, with a few limitations depending on your state.
In New Jersey, you can withdraw through Skrill, Instant eChecks, PayPal, VanillaDirect, your PokerStars Play+ Card, or at the Resorts Casino Cage.
In Pennsylvania, your withdrawal options are Skrill, PayPal and Instant eChecks.
And in Colorado, you can choose between PayPal and Instant eChecks.
How long does it take for me to receive my money after requesting a withdrawal?
The various methods of withdrawal have differing timeframes when it comes to actually receiving money. The processing time may also differ depending on whether your withdrawal method is the same as your deposit method was, and whether your withdrawal amount is higher than your deposit was.
Instant eChecks are processed immediately (or within an hour for higher withdrawal amounts), and you should expect to see the funds on your statement within 3-10 business days.
Skrill and PayPal withdrawals are similarly processed immediately, with slightly longer (up to an hour) delays for larger withdrawals. Once processed, though, these funds will appear to you in a few minutes.
PokerStarsPay withdrawals get sent for processing within 24 hours except on weekends. From that point it may take 3-4 business days to appear in your account.
Withdrawals made at the Resorts Casino cage may take up to two hours to process, and you’ll be notified via email when your funds are ready.
Does FOX Bet charge fees?
There are no fees for registering or having an account.
FOX Bet does not charge deposit fees for using credit/debit cards or Skrill, either, but all card and Skrill users should check for any fees that may come from their side.
How old do I have to be to place bets at FOX Bet?
You must be at least 21 years old to bet legally in the United States.
What sports are available to bet at FOX Bet?
FOX Bet offers a wide variety of sports, including …
Football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, golf, tennis, UFC, eSports, darts, motor sports, table tennis, Aussie Rules football, rugby, and more.
Does FOX Bet offer live sports betting?
Yes, FOX Bet does offer live betting, and even offers in-game odds on some smaller-market sports like table tennis.
To access all of the live betting options, find the “In-Game” button (usually to the right of the “Home” button across the top banner), and you’ll be presented with every current game available to live bet.
FOX Bet also offers a live “cash-out” option, allowing bettors the live opportunity to take a calculated portion of their winnings on a bet that’s currently taking place.
This can be useful for bettors looking to guarantee a profit on a winning bet they think still has a chance to lose, or limit their losses on one that looks like a sure loss.
How do FOX Bet’s custom bets work?
FOX Bet offers a unique option for bettors to create their own proposition bets by using the hashtag #CustomBet on Twitter. From there, FOX Bet will decide if the prop is fair and may place the bet on their site.
Does FOX Bet offer a refer-a-friend bonus?
There is no refer-a-friend bonus offer at FOX Bet.
What devices can I use to deposit or wager at FOX Bet?
FOX Bet offers users three platforms from which to choose: a downloadable desktop client, a mobile app, and the web interface.
Is the FOX Bet app free?
Yes. Both the iOS and Andriod apps are free, and allow anyone to create an account and sample games from anywhere.
For those wishing to play for real money, however, you’ll need deposit money into your account, and be in New Jersey or Pennsylvania with your location services turned on.
Can I cancel a bet I’ve made?
No, not really. But FOX Bet’s cash-out option allows you to take your wager off the table before the event has started or is complete. The amount you’ll receive will depend on the odds of your bet as well as the current state of the given game or event.
What’s the difference between FOX Bet and Bovada?
The major difference — and the one that should matter to you — is legality.
FOX Bet is legal, and backed by a government body.
Bovada, on the other hand, is an offshore book, which means it’s not backed by any sort of government body. In other words, your funds are never truly safe, and in a scenario in which they decided to defraud you or refuse a withdrawal, you’d have no real course of action.
Other benefits to using FOX Bet as opposed to illegal sportsbooks:
1. You can more easily deposit, since your options include anything from bank accounts, online payment accounts, credit/debit cards, and even cash.
2. First-time players can end up with total bonuses of up to $1,000.
3. You’ll get your money much more quickly when withdrawing.
Other FOX Bet Benefits
As they sound, Bet Boosts offer you increased odds on various events each day, giving you the chance to win more money than you would at any other book. FOX Bet also provides boosts to bets given by FOX Sports personalities, including Colin Cowherd, Clay Travis and many more.
Super Boosts are the biggest bet boosts of the week, and offer even more of an advantage to you as a bettor.
By tweeting using the hashtag #CustomBet, you can find your proposition bet on the FOX Bet site for you to bet!
