As the wave of new sports betting markets sweeps across the US, betting apps for smartphones and tablets are appearing almost daily. Sports betting is currently permitted in 15 states and Washington, D.C. At least 25 other states are considering moves to open betting soon.
Finding the right online bookmakers and betting apps has quickly become a priority for the millions of US residents who wish to take advantage of wagering real money on sports. Many of the apps flooding the mobile marketplace are from brands unrecognized by US bettors and sports fans.
However, that’s not the case with FOX Bet, a new sports betting platform created through a partnership between FOX Sports and The Stars Group.
Since 1994, FOX Sports has been one of the nation’s leading broadcasters of live sports events. Under its syndicate of networks, FOX Sports airs most major sports, including the NFL, MLB, MLS, and NASCAR. The Stars Group, a pioneer in internet-based gambling, offers online poker under the popular brands PokerStars and Full Tilt.
If security, a wide range of available sports and bets, and a trusted name are on your list for an online bookmaker, FOX Bet could be exactly what you’re looking for.

What Does the App Do Well?
The overall design of the FOX Bet app is sleek and easy to use. The app home screen displays daily Bet Boosts, which are featured bets picked by FOX’s experts with sweetened payouts. You’ll also find custom bets created from player input submitted via Twitter, trending bets, and hot upcoming matches.
A left-sliding navigation bar at the top of the interface makes it simple to jump right into the sport you’re looking for with a swipe and a tap. The navigation bar hosts links to popular US leagues and sports including the NFL, NBA, NHL, baseball, golf, and tennis.
Tapping the All button provides access to an alphabetical directory of all the sports available for betting. This is the area to visit for international favorites like cricket, cycling, and rugby union.
Tapping your desired sport reveals a page of available matches, odds, and bets in that sport. Tapping a listed bet instantly adds it to your bet slip. Multiple bets can be added to a bet slip and combined in a single transaction.
FOX Bet offers one of the more exhaustive selections of bets we’ve seen from a mobile app. The moneylines, point spreads, and over/unders you’d expect to find are all here along with parlays, futures, props, in-game wagers, and much more. In particular, gridiron football really shines, and US punters can play a wide range of wagers throughout the NFL season.
Depositing and withdrawing funds is also easy through the FOX Bet app. Real money mobile deposit methods include PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, Instant eChecks, and the Stars Transfer system. Withdrawals are made via PayPal or Instant eChecks.
Released in August 2019, the Fox Bet app is a relative newcomer to the US sports betting marketplace. In our opinion, FOX Sports and The Stars Group have hit a home run with this app thanks to the user-friendly interface, variety of betting options, and slick package of immersive features. Experienced sports bettors and those taking advantage of game wagering for the first time are equally likely to enjoy the FOX Bet app.
