Fox Bet has joined other internet giants like DraftKings and FanDuel with a sportsbook in New Jersey that went live on September 13, 2018. Fox Bet Sportsbook is also live in Pennsylvania and Colorado.
Soon, Michigan is slated to get in on the action, so make sure you keep an eye out for more news on this online sportsbook launch too.
Fox Bet is the sports betting arm of Stars Group, which famously owns PokerStars. The site already maintains a strong presence in Europe and Canada.
The site has now come to the United States due to a deal between Stars Group and Resorts Atlantic City. The deal is effectively an extension of the two companies’ existing deal for poker and casino gambling in New Jersey.
Fox Bet promotions 2020
Fox Bet offers new players a welcome package worth up to $1,000.
New players can take advantage of Fox Bet’s rather generous first deposit offer. Fox Bet will match each new deposit 50% of the deposit amount. This match extends to up to an up to $500 bonus. There is no promotional code required for redemption, just sign up via one of our links.
New players can also take advantage of Fox Bet’s rather generous $500 risk free bet – You get up to $500 refunded to your account if your first bet doesn’t win. Once again no promo code is required.
The other bonuses onsite are all the same type of bonus – the odds boost. Fox Bet will choose a different contest each day to receive a bump in the players’ favor.
The unique aspect of Fox Bet’s boosts is that each one is tied to one of its on-air personalities. Each day, a different Fox Sports analyst will choose their own boost.
Now, it’s unlikely that Fox Bet and the Stars Group are literally allowing these media figures to choose the boost. It’s possible, but it doesn’t seem very probable.
However, it’s still a fun way to tie in the media aspect of the company with the sports betting side. Receiving a tip from a well-known television figure can make everyone feel like they’re part of the game.
So, tune in each day to hear the following boosts:
- Monday – Cris Carter’s Call (Cris Carter)
- Tuesday – Rachel’s Double Up Bet Boost (Rachel Bonnetta)
- Wednesday – The Wright Bet Boost (Nick Wright)
- Thursday – Custom Sal’s Money Back Special (Sal Iacono)
- Friday – Lock It In Bet Boost (Rachel Bonnetta, Sal Iacono, and Clay Travis)
- Saturday – Colin Cowherd’s Marquee 3 Super Boost (Colin Cowherd)
- Saturday – Clay Travis Blood Bank Bet Boost (Clay Travis)
- Sunday – Colin Cowherd’s Blazin 5 Super Boost (Colin Cowherd)
- Sunday – Charissa Thompson’s Custom Bet Boost (Charissa Thompson)

That said, no established company like Fox Bet would create a high bar for US bettors to negotiate. Here is a basic list of how you can bet:
- Point spreads

Within those types, however, Fox Bet includes the long list of parlay combinations that its site touts. The site also features several exotic bet types – which allow players to make bets with premiums or discounts to the existing prices for wagers.
