Fox Bet Sportbook Review Chart

Summary

Unless you've been living under a rock your whole life, you're likely very familiar with the Fox brand -- even if you didn't know they're now in the betting industry. They are definitely a book worth checking out: While they seemingly cater to casual sports bettors by use of celebrity influencers, they actually do offer solid prices across a variety of markets. While their odds boosts and promos are below industry standard, if you're a bettor who likes to price shop (and you should), FOX Bet is a worthy addition to your betting portfolio.

FOX Bet Bonuses & Promotions

Bonuses & Promos from Fox Bet - 3.5 / 5 Stars

The FOX Bet sign-up offer is standard across the industry. They also really highlight odds boosts and daily promos, although they're often a little less enticing than they initially look on the surface. They have several good qualities as a book, but they don't stand out in the promo world. Read More

Mobile App & Website

Fox Bet: Sports Betting Mobile App - 3.5 / 5 Stars

We've found FOX Bet's site reliable but very cluttered and oftentimes challenging to navigate. They really lean into their celebrity personalities and highlight custom bets and odds boosts, which quickly busy up the page and make it difficult to find markets. Read More

Registering & Cashiering at FOX Bet

Fox Bet: Registering & Cashiering - 4.0 / 5 Stars

We haven't had issues depositing or withdrawing at FOX Bet, but we have heard the sign-up and account creation process is more cumbersome than other books. We've heard of them asking more frequently for confirmation of identity, but once an account is created they are typically good with deposits and withdrawals. Read More

Betting Options

Fox Bet: Betting Options - 4.5 / 5 Stars

You'll often find the same odds across a variety of U.S. books, mostly because a lot of major companies use the same odds providers. FOX Bet definitely stands out in this regard, posting unique odds in a variety of markets, which means users can often find some nice value. They especially stand out in futures markets with low hold. Read More

FOX Bet vs Other Sportsbooks

Fox Bet: Competitor Comparison - 4.5 / 5 Stars

It's good to have variety among sportsbooks, and that's exactly why FOX Bet excels in some areas. While they're not particularly strong with promotions and can be heavy-handed with advertisements, they offer very competitive odds in their markets, particularly on futures bets. If you're a bettor who cares about price shopping, FOX Bet is a great book to have available to you. Read More

FOX Bet Bonuses & Promotions

One thing new bettors will find out is that it's challenging to make money as a sports bettor, partly because it's difficult to predict the future but most importantly because of the juice -- also called the "vig" -- which is the tax a book takes on each bet. In other words, going 50% on your bets actually means you'll lose money over the long-term. That's why it's important to price shop, take advantage of sign-up offers, and keep your eye on odds boosts. FOX Bet is stronger in the first part -- they offer very competitive odds for most markets -- but their promos and boosts are merely average in the industry.

The Action Network users can get a sign-up offer from FOX Bet: up to a $500 completely risk-free bet.

How it works: Make an account and deposit at FOX Bet. Your first bet, which you'll make with your deposited money, will be risk-free up to $500. That means if you lose that very first bet on your account, FOX Bet will give you up to $500 in a free bet of that back into your account.

Some fine print details:

  • Your first bet has to be on odds at -200 or below. That means a -150 bet will count, but a -250 moneyline will not, for example.
  • You must use your risk-free bet within 90 days of opening your account.

Note that the risk-free bet is available only once, so make sure to deposit enough to fully take advantage of the offer. If you deposit and bet with just $10 on your first wager, that will be the amount you'll get back in free bets if it loses -- not $500.

Mobile App & Website

All in all, FOX Bet's site and app get the job done, but there are some critiques we have.

Web Experience

When you first navigate to the site, you're immediately inundanted with promotions and celebrity influencers who are a big part of their brand. Perhaps that's why they attract customers, but it makes the site very busy for users who simply want to find markets and bet.

We've noticed that the site can be a little slow at times, perhaps because of all of the advertisements and images. The betting and betslip experience are intuitive and fast; it's just the load times of pages that can take an extra moment or two.

In terms of navigation, FOX Bet is about standard with other sites, although they do consistently highlight markets that are a part of their brand -- particularly their "Custom Bets" from users who request a specific market or bet type. Those can be fun for users, but they do clutter up some of the main markets like game and player props.

Registering & Cashiering at FOX Bet

Each state and sportsbook are different in their requirements for users, be it due to company policy or state-by-state regulations. We've heard FOX Bet can be a little more challenging in the sign-up process: They require a bit more information, and they sometimes ask for more proof of identity.

Once that process is completed, however, you shouldn't have a problem with sign-up offers or depositing or withdrawing money.

Payout Speed

Perhaps the best part about using FOX Bet or any other legal U.S. book is the guarantee that your data, account and money are safe. In contrast with offshore sportsbooks that have no regulatory body to hold them accountable, FOX Bet is heavily regulated by the state that they operate in. That means strong user protections for bettors, who can be worry-free about whether they can access their cash once they're ready to withdraw.

FOX Bet has a wide variety of deposit and withdrawal options, including:

  • Bank account
  • Credit card
  • Debit card
  • PayPal
  • PayNearMe
  • E-Check

Spending Controls

Most legal sportsbooks have self-imposed limiting controls in place, and FOX Bet is no different. These are effective ways to stop yourself from betting too much if it’s becoming a problem or to just be proactive about setting healthy limits for yourself. We recommend configuring whatever set up helps you maintain responsible limits, and educating yourself. The controls FOX Bet offers include: 

  • Player Limits: Limit your deposits, bet size, and playing time on FOX Bet's site and app.
  • Self Exclusion: Ban yourself from using the sportsbook for a set period of time.
  • Cool Off: Prevent yourself from depositing or placing bets for a set period of time, while still accessing the app.

In addition to the FOX Bet-provided resources, The Action Network has developed bankroll management educational materials to help ensure bettors have fun and establish sustainable behavior.

Betting Options

There are a variety of ways a book can be unique in their odds offerings: being the first to market, setting new markets/bets, and offering independent odds. While FOX Bet doesn't prioritize the former strategy, they are one of the better books in the latter two. They consistently offer "custom bets," and they really stand out by setting their own lines within sports. If you like to bet futures or sports like golf where outrights are very popular bets, FOX Bet is definitely a book you need in your portfolio.

Bet types available

FOX Bet offers your standard bets, of course, but they also list every day of the year a "Custom Bet" section on their home page, which is typically fairly unique markets. These are user-requested bets, which is a cool feature for bettors who are interested in an angle but can't find it listed at a legal U.S. book.

That’s in addition to all the popular, standard bets you can get at any sportsbook — point spreads, totals, moneyline, first half derivatives, etc. These include:

  • Spreads
  • Moneylines
  • Totals
  • First half
  • Second half
  • Player props
  • Futures

Sports Markets Offered

In general, FOX Bet offers just about everything you'd find at another book -- and if they don't, you can always request them to make a unique "custom" market. Further, on the markets they do offer, they are very competitive in terms of price, highlighting that if you're just interested in markets and price shopping over promos, FOX Bet is a worthy book to check out.

  • NFL
  • NBA
  • MLB
  • Hockey
  • College football
  • College basketball
  • UFC/MMA
  • Boxing
  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Darts
  • Cricket
  • Golf
  • Rugby
  • Table tennis
  • Track & field
  • Other Available FOX Bet Markets
    FOX Bet offers standard markets on popular sports like the NFL and NBA, but they also list odds on niche sports like darts, cricket and rugby. They also consistently offer custom bets and "super boosts," which are right on the front page of the site and app.

    FOX Bet vs Other Sportsbooks

    While sign-up offers, promos and user experience are all crucial factors in selecting a sportsbook, the most sophisticated bettors are often worried about the price. We can compare books in this regard a couple of ways:

    • Juice: Also referred to as the “vig,” this is the tax a sportsbook charges for a bet. The standard odds for a spread bet is -110, which means you have to pay $110 to win $10. That extra $10 is the tax.
    • Hold: Similar to the juice, hold is defined as the percentage a sportsbook keeps for every dollar wagered. It’s a better metric to measure for moneylines, for example.

    Most online U.S. books -- in states where betting is entirely online and not regulated by the state lottery, at least -- have standard juice on your typical bets. Take, for example, the juice on spread bets for the NFL. There’s no major difference between sportsbooks: It is commonplace to get -110 on both sides for both the spread and the over/under.

    In terms of hold on moneylines, FOX Bet is actually one of the best books in the U.S. market. They consistently have low theoretical holds on futures markets, as well as non-game markets like golf outright odds. That's a big deal over the long run: If you're a golf bettor who can get slightly superior odds every week at FOX Bet vs. a book you were using in the past, that will really add up on your bottom line over the long-term.

    In other markets, they're not quite as strong. For example, for a lot of custom bets, props and game markets, they'll often offer just one-way markets. Those are usually -EV for bettors because they can easily boost the juice vs. the "true" odds because bettors can't see both sides of the market.

    All in all, though, FOX Bet is unique and offers good pricing on futures and smaller sport markets. Just for those reasons, it's worthing adding an account and keeping an eye on their odds when you're price shopping your bets.

    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

    Bet Boosts

    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

    Super Boosts are the biggest bet boosts of the week, and offer even more of an advantage to you as a bettor.

    Custom Bets

    By tweeting using the hashtag #CustomBet, you can find your proposition bet on the FOX Bet site for you to bet!

    FOX Bet Customer Service

    You can contact FOX Bet through its help center on the web, desktop software or mobile app. You’ll be provided with a template to send a message, which will include specifying your reason for contact.

    It is recommended that you be logged into your account (if you have one) when reaching out.
