After The Stars Group (TSG) signed an agreement with FOX Sports, they launched the new FOXBet Sportsbook in September 2019.
FOXBet first began its gaming operations in Pennsylvania in partnership with Mount Airy Casino Resort in the Poconos. Users in Pennsylvania, Colorado and New Jersey can access the sportsbook on a desktop device or by downloading the app for iOS and Android devices.
Personally, I give the FOXBet Sportsbook an overall grade of A-.
As you will see below, the sign-up bonus, bet boosts, and custom bets make FOXBet Sportsbook one of the most entertaining sportsbooks for first-time customers to use.

When players choose a wager at FOXBet, they will always be able to find some sort of odds boost. FOXBet, when compared to its competitors, has the most odds boosts selections available. However, with each odds boost, there is a maximum playable limit attached.
These odds boosts can be found under the “Home” tab at the top left of the home page (as seen to the right):
The Stars Group benefits from its partnership with FOX Sports, one of the largest sports entertainment outlets in the world. FOX Sports connects some of its most popular celebrities with various odds boost opportunities. Here are some examples:
Rachel Bonnetta, a host of Lock It In, singles out one selection to make a play and FOXBet boosts the odds to a straight double-up to increase your winning payout.
Nick Wright, the host of First Things First, gives out his parlay of the day and FOXBet boosts the odds allowing for a chance at a big payout.
Clay Travis, another host of Lock It In, gives out one of his plays that he is so confident in, he would risk a pint of his own blood! FOXBet boosts the odds of this play to increase your winning payout.
One of the most interesting and unique features of FOXBet is the ability to create your own customized bets. It is a wager that can be sent in to FOXBet, and if accepted, they will then place odds on it and give you a chance to bet.
This is an exciting idea that many players took advantage of during the NFL season to make watching their favorite teams more interesting.
Users can tweet at FOXBet using the hashtag #custombet while providing a description of the wager they are looking for. If accepted, FOXBet will acknowledge the tweet and inform the user when the wager is live on the sportsbook.
Each player can also wager on other popular custom bets that are accepted and posted.
FOXBet, on both its desktop and mobile platforms, provides a user-friendly platform that allows players to easily place the wager they are looking for.
At the top of the application, there is a slidable menu that lists the top sports where the most popular bets can be found, as well as an “All” tab that users can access to search for a sport not listed in the top menu.
The “In Game” tab is where players can find all the live bets that are available to be placed.
The blue ticket under the “All” tab gives players a quick view of their bet slip.
The clean organization of its individual menus makes FOXBet one of the easiest interfaces for players to navigate.
FOXBet, compared to its competitors, has limited withdrawal options. With only three withdrawal options available, FOXBet should look to add more options for its customers as they continue to grow.
Even though FOXBet provides a large number of betting opportunities during the NFL season, it is during the NFL off-season where there is a lack of coverage of some smaller market and international sports for which its competitors do provide lines.
