FOX Bet Review

US Sports Bettors Accepted

Things to Consider Before Signing Up


  • Generally favorable odds on futures.
  • Reduced juice on local teams.
  • FOX Bet Super 6 game.


  • Not a strong player in prop bets.
  • Welcome bonus only half of what competitiors offer.
  • Ongoing promos are weak.


If you’re a new user, you won’t be floored by the welcome bonus offered at FOX Bet. While the industry standard has been set at $1,000 by leaders such as BetMGM, FOX Bet has decided to provide new users with just $50 insurance in the form of a second chance bet.

With the second-chance bet, your first qualifying bet placed will be refunded if it’s graded a loss in the form of bonus bets for up to $50. You need to play through that bonus money 1x before you can cash it out. If your first bet wins, congratulations. You get nothing for signing up. But at least you won your bet!

Not only that, but FOX also makes you work for it. You’re required to opt-in within seven days of registration under the promotions tab. Then you will view the challenges you’re allowed to bet on under the terms and conditions of the promo. Your first bet has to be on odds at -200 or below, which means a -150 bet will count, but a -300 moneyline will not.

FOX Bet promos and bonuses

FOX Bet leverages its sports coverage from T.V. personalities to drive most of its ongoing promos and odds boosts. Some examples are Terry Bradshaw announcing a 9x Your Money boost, where Bradshaw will announce a wager for Monday Night Football that will receive a basic odds boost. There are specials like this daily, mostly revolving around odds boosts for bet credits if the featured bet loses.

Like all sportsbooks, bonus bets have rollover requirements, and wagers featured with odds boosts have low maximum bet limits. They offer little profitability, and like most sportsbooks, FOX Bet will even restrict sharper bettors from participating in such ongoing promos. They’re just used as ploys to get recreational bettors to drop money in their accounts to lose, which is expected due to the traffic their high-risk casino games receive thanks to their partnership with PokerStars.

Stars Rewards Program

FOX Bet doesn’t offer a standalone rewards program, but they have tagged along with the PokerStars rewards program to say they offer some sort of loyalty perks.

Reward points are earned when a bet is settled. Players earn 1.7 reward points for every $1 wagered for singles bets. For multiple/accumulator bets, players earn 4.7 reward points for every $1 wagered. Collect enough points to complete your progress bars, and you’ll unlock chests with personalized rewards based on the games you like to play.

Unfortunately, more terms and conditions make this program a headache for bettors to navigate. Reward points are not awarded for bets cashed out if the cash-out value is equal to the initial bet amount. So if you bet $10 and cash out for $10, you will earn no reward points but if you bet $10 and cash out for more or less than $10, you will earn reward points. This is frankly random and unnecessarily confusing.

FOX Bet Sportsbook Review

FOX Bet has all the resources to become a major player in the sports betting landscape. From name recognition and advertising featuring well-known sports media personalities to being owned by a company that already operates a well-known product, the pieces are in place.

Unfortunately, none of that comes together – and while there are some positives here, the result is a sportsbook with plenty of issues. We take a look at what FOX Bet offers, and why there are better options out there for sports bettors.

FOX Bet Locations

FOX Bet is only available in the following states:

It is not expected to expand into other states in the near future.

Sports Leagues to Bet On

FOX Bet features popular sports leagues bettors enjoy wagering on but is rather limited outside of that. The most popular sports are prominently featured on the top of the page alongside the streaming and live betting options.

NFL Betting

As a sportsbook associated with a broadcast partner of the NFL, it should come as no surprise that NFL betting features prominently at FOX Bet. You’ll find traditional bets like moneylines, spreads, and over/unders in addition to player props, team props, and live betting options.

The number of betting options is nice, but that doesn’t mean much when the odds offered are 90% of the time worse than the competitors. I compared the odds offered to those of DraftKings for example and found some ML markets are as much as 89 cents worse at FOX Bet.

NBA Betting

FOX Bet and the rest of the U.S. sportsbook elite have significantly raised the bar in recent years when it comes to NBA betting markets. The main ML, spread, and O/U are covered plus player props such as points, rebounds, and assists. I found that every game has at least 200+ bets to choose from. 

College Football

FOX Bet does a solid job with college football odds, providing both the basics (moneyline, spread, totals) and popular secondary markets like team props. The odds offered are at least more competitive than its NFL offerings, but you’ll likely see a half-point or one point of value taken off both spreads and O/U.

College Basketball

While you'll get a decent set of available markets when the season tips off, FOX Bet doesn’t offer any college basketball in the weeks leading up to the start of the campaign. Considering that major competitors like Caesars, PointsBet, and BetMGM at least have their futures markets up and available to be wagered on, this is a major strike against for those into college hoops.

NHL Betting

FOX Bet offers a healthy number of NHL betting markets every day during the season and into the Stanley Cup playoffs. In addition to moneyline, puckline, and total plays, bettors have access to team and player props, along with period-specific betting markets. However, I would be a much bigger FOX Bet fan if the prices on outright winners were better.

MLB Betting

You’ll find a high-quality selection of MLB betting options at FOX Bet. You can bet on standard spreads, totals, and moneyline bets for the full game of just the first five innings. There are Same Game Parlay options that are sortable by bet risk and options in the parlay, and the stats they provide on the top of the page above the markets were a nice touch.

Other Sports Leagues

As a U.S. operator, the primary focus of FOX Bet is North American sports. But bettors looking for more will have to go elsewhere — it only offers soccer, tennis, golf, UFC, and boxing. Compare this to FanDuel, which features 18 different sports on its homepage, and you’ll see that FOX Bet really lags behind the industry leaders.

That said, the few sports it does provide feature numerous markets to wager on. All five major European soccer leagues plus the UEFA Champions League are covered, and everything from the European Tour to the outright winner's markets for all four majors is available for golf. Tennis features both the WTA and the ATP tours, and every major UFC card will have all sorts of bets available from straight-up winners to the method and the round of knockout.

Online Betting Experience

Website Experience

FOX Bet sportsbook homepage

The desktop experience for FOX Bet is less than ideal. There is a distracting trending bets menu on the left-hand side, and I struggle to figure out what relevant information this provides to bettors (aside from what other people are betting on.) The yellow and blue color scheme is clunky and needs updating.

Also, the overuse of TV personality ads that clutter the screen is offputting, and gives it an overall gimmicky feel compared to competitors. Their platform seems entirely geared toward inexperienced bettors who see a bet mentioned on TV and want to try their hand at betting. Similar to rival sports betting sites like BetRivers, FOX Bet's odds are outsourced by Kambi – which means you won't find much value in the betting lines.

Mobile Betting and Betting App

FOX Bet has an app for both iOS and Android. It currently boasts 4.5-star and 4-star ratings, respectively, across the App Store and Google Play. Unlike some sportsbooks, FOX Bet has just one app instead of multiple for each region — a big plus.

The apps themselves do a good job replicating the experience of the desktop website. The iOS app is even compatible with iPads, which is not something you see from other operators.

Casino, Poker, & Other Gaming Options

FOX Bet casino homepage

FOX Bet has partnered with PokerStars for its casino and poker offering. The result is an experience that rivals any of the bigger players in the space. There are approximately 344 different slots, 11 live and table blackjack games, five roulette games, and eight poker games.

Its partnership with PokerStars naturally gives it a leg up with live online poker. From various tournaments, easy deposits, quick withdrawals, plus a new player welcome bonus of up to $600 make it arguably the place to sign up for if playing a few hands is your thing.

FOX Bet History

FOX Bet has a roundabout connection to the Fox Corporation despite its likeness to the Fox media company. Ireland-based Flutter Entertainment operates FOX Bet after its 2019 acquisition of The Stars Group. Fox Corporation (who held a minority stake in The Stars Group) took a minority stake in Flutter Entertainment as part of the purchase. In short, FOX Bet is operated by Flutter in a toxic partnership with Fox Corporation, co-branded with its Fox Sports division.

This arrangement has created a less-than-ideal working relationship between all parties, mainly due to Flutter’s majority stake in FanDuel. In April 2021, amid discussion of an initial public offering by Flutter, Fox Corp. sued the company over its option to acquire a stake in FanDuel Group, stating that the company wanted Fox’s purchase price to be based on fair market value rather than based on its valuation of FanDuel as of December 2020.

Fox Corp is currently in arbitration with Flutter under some of the elements of their options, such as their 50% option in FOX Bet and their 18.6% option in FanDuel. Fox expects that arbitration to be complete in the coming months. It is safe to say we won’t see any meaningful change from this sportsbook for a while as it sits in purgatory through this legal process.

Customer Ratings & Reputation

For casual bettors, FOX Bet is probably best known for their market-leading free-to-play game FOX Bet Super 6 which is heavily advertised on NFL on FOX broadcasts.

With nearly 100 million contest entries since its launch in September 2019 and a user base of more than 5 million, the FOX Bet Super 6 app has given away close to $5 million in prizes. FOX Bet Super 6 boasts by far the most downloads in the free-to-play category of sports prediction apps (including fantasy) since July 2020.

Common complaints for FOX Bet include the aforementioned poor odds, location detection on the mobile app, issues with funds released, and the ID verification process being intrusive.

Customer Service

The help section at FOX Bet offers articles for frequently asked questions such as withdrawal instructions, file formats for verification documents, and much more. I found their virtual assistant live chat to not be helpful, as it was unable to answer a simple question on whether FOX Bet accepts cryptocurrencies (it doesn't.)

Why Choose FOX Bet?

The fact that the FOX Bet sportsbook is not the compnay's standout product tells you everything you need to know about the sports betting platform. The website design and layout seem like an afterthought, and the odds are not good enough to justify its lackluster sports offerings.

Regular bettors will feel the lack of care throughout the product. Novice and casual betting crowds might not care as much, but there are still sportsbooks with better user interfaces for those looking to get started. I can’t in good conscience recommend FOX Bet unless you are simply looking to add one more account to your stable.
