App and Site Experience
While there is a website for FOX Bet, you can only use the sportsbook platform on mobile apps for iOS and Android. This app is fantastic. Everything is compact yet concise and you don’t miss things. Whoever designed this app did an immaculate job.
At the top of the page you’ll find the registration and login buttons, followed by the filters for the different sports identified by a ball respective to the sport.Below are links to the promotions page, as well as “popular” bets, results and a drop-down menu in which you can change the odds display.
As you peruse down the app, there is a the section for the #CustomBets and you can also request that Fox Bet adds one by tweeting at them. Further down are the games and odds for whatever sport you choose. These are odds for spread, moneyline and totals, but there are also numerous other bet types such as (for football), who will score the first touchdown and other interesting prop bets.
At the very bottom of the app there are buttons to go back to the home page of the sportsbook and to access your account.
Let’s also cover the registration process.
Registering on the mobile app is beyond simple, though there could be some condensing to make it a bit more seamless. At first, there are just three short steps:
- 1. Username/password
- 2. Email
- 3. Consent to the terms of service
When you’re done here, you’ll be taken to a separate window to enroll for real money wagers where FOX Bet ask more personal information further identify you, such as name, gender, date of birth, last four of your social security number, cell phone, etc. This is all to keep you and your account safe at FOX Bet.
When you find your desired wager type, click on it and the blue betslip in the upper-right hand corner of the app will light and up and have a red number attached to it that is representative of the amount of bets you have selected. There, you can place your bet or create parlays.
These are the sports and bet types offered at FOX Bet:
- Motor Sports
- Moneyline: wager on teams to outright win
- Spread: wager using point differences determined by the sportsbook to make the game “even”
- Totals: Also known as over/under, this is an amount of points combined between the teams
- Futures: Events that will happen later, such as the Super Bowl
- Parlay: Placing one bet on multiple games in which they must all win to get the winnings
- Round Robin: Places bets on numerous versions of a parlay
- Teaser: Manipulating spreads to be slightly different from the original. This will impact odds
- Live betting: Betting on games currently in-progress
- Custom Bets: Custom Bets made by FOX Bet or created via fan requests on Twitter
On the app, click on the account button at the bottom of the page all the way to the right-hand side. From here, click on “Help” then “Contact Support”.
Here, a form will appear that you can fill out that acts as an email. Right now, this appears to be the only method of support. With the rebranding being so recent, it’s fair to assume that FOX Bet will add more methods in the near future, though.
Below is a comprehensive list of all the deposit and withdrawal methods at FOX Bet. Exact timelines for withdrawals isn’t known, though all deposits are done instantly. With that said, we used PayPal and got our money in mere hours, so there is nothing to worry about, especially with the FOX brand surrounding this online sportsbook now.

Sometimes the odds may be better elsewhere, but FOX Bet looks like it is going to be one of the most innovative online sportsbooks in the market. Factoring in bet types to go up “against” the FOX Sports personalities and the Custom Bets are a wonderful touch.
Being on just an app may not be for everyone, but as we mentioned, the app is pristine. Always being on the go, accessing this from not only your phone, but also a tablet negates some of the desire to want a dedicated website on your desktop.
With all of that said, other details will be ironed out as FOX Bet transition from being BetStars. Get in on the action now—this is going to be a special place to wager.
