FOX Bet offers the following three features, which are both awesome!

Cash Out Feature - FOX Bet sportsbook offers a cash-out feature, which allows you to amend your original bet and lock in a profit or a loss by settling your bet (or a portion of your bet) early, without having to wait for the event to finish. This feature is available at other US-regulated sportsbooks, such as DraftKings, SugarHouse, 888sport, and FanDuel, but not any offshore sites. Knowing you can cash a bet out early incentivizes you to watch every game you bet on, or at least get scoring updates.

Custom Bets - If you have an idea for a crazy parlay, or think there should be a bet offered that currently isn’t, FOX Bet allows you to create a custom bet. You can create your own custom bet, or bet on popular custom bets other bettors have created. These custom bets are fun, exciting, and unique to FOX Bet. If you think each Quarterback is going to throw for 300 yards and three touchdowns, create the bet!

Live Betting

FOX Bet gives bettors an excellent live betting menu to wager from. Instant bets are available, which allow bettors to wager on the next at-bat in a baseball game, or the next point in a tennis match.

Another cool feature FOX Bet offers is a match tracker, for live betting sports such as football, basketball, hockey, and soccer. The match tracker has a live clock, displays the score by quarter, and even shows which team is attacking in real-time. For NFL games, the match tracker even lists the last play, the total plays, and yards on the drive, and the down and distance.

Mobile Betting

The FOX Bet mobile app is a solid all-around offering. Navigating to and placing bets is seamless. Mobile bettors will have no problem betting on in-game wagers, or anything for that matter. My only complaint is that some of the educational information available on the desktop version of FOX Bet is not included in the mobile app.

Other Notes

Education: FOX Bet offers limited education, an area they need to improve on going forward. There are not any guides explaining how to bet or different betting types. The limited selection of educational videos try to be funny, and lack in actual educational video.

Reputation: FOX Bet has a decent reputation as a younger international sportsbook, with no pending legal issues. The Stars Group is a publicly-traded company with $1.3 billion in revenue in 2017. One hundred twenty million PokerStars accounts have been created. FOX is one of the largest media outlets in the world.

Promotions: FOX Bet offers bet boost promotions five days of the week. These promotions tie into their network personalities such as Collin Cowherd and Nick Wright. In addition to these daily bet boosts FOX Bet offers between $20 - $100 in bonus funds when you first signup. The daily bet boosts FOX Bet offers are listed below:

  • Tuesday Rachel boosts a bet for you every Tuesday to increase your winning payout!
  • Wednesday Nick Wright’s parlay of the day gets increased odds.
  • Thursday Sal’s money back special ensures bettors get refunded if his #custombet doesn’t win.
  • Saturday Clay’s favorite Saturday pick gets boosted odds.
  • Sunday Charissa boosts a #custombet every Sunday night.
  • Sunday Bettors have a chance to double their winnings on Sundays when Collin Cowherd hits his Blazin’ five picks.

The robust banking options, an advanced slew of betting features and promotions, and high-quality live betting and mobile experience combine to make FOX Bet a premiere betting choice for residents of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
