FOXBet Sportsbook, a brand new sportsbook that is set to launch later this year in Iowa, is expected to be one of the best sportsbooks on the market with a wide variety of both free play and real money games for users to take advantage of.
It will launch first in PA and NJ, but aims to launch as soon as possible in all other states that have legal online sports gambling, and is being eagerly anticipated by fans of sports betting.
In addition to being able to play and gamble for real money on sports in IA, FOXBet will also have a variety of free play and fun options for those just looking to play without any money on the line.
Whatever experience you are looking for when it comes to sports betting or gameplay, you will be able to find it on the FOXBet app! Let’s go into some more detail about what you can expect below.
FOXBet Sportsbook Review: The Deal
In May of this year, sports media conglomerate FOX Sports and The Stars Group (TSG) announced that they are entering into a partnership together in the sports betting market to provide both free play and real money options to those looking to bet on sports of all kinds.
Executives from both FOX Sports and TSG have discussed how they think the partnership could be beneficial and potentially result in a lot of growth for each company. Especially as they each bring expertise to the table which will result for a terrific and seamless experience for those customers looking for FOX Sports betting.
It is their end goal to ultimately be a respectable challenger to FanDuel and DraftKings who currently dominate the sports betting market at present.
TSG is already up and running at the Resorts Casino and Hotel located in Atlantic City, and is also present at many other states like Iowa and throughout the world.
Through their existing relationship with Resorts, it is likely that the FOXBet app will be up and running sooner rather than later.
About Fox Sports and TSG
So who are the two major players who are coming together to form FOXBet? Both are titans in their respective fields, so let’s take a closer look at both FOX Sports and The Stars Group and what we can likely expect from this unprecedented partnership.
FOX Sports has been in operation since 1994. At present, they own the broadcast rights to the National Football League (NFL), the National Hockey League (NHL), Major League Baseball (MLB), NASCAR, Major League Soccer (MLS), and much much more.
At present, they own and operate FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2, FOX Deportes, and FOX Soccer plus, as well as FOXSports.com and the FOX Sports App which provides on the go access for their millions of subscribers and has proved to be a massive success for them so far.
They are a major player in American sports coverage and will be bringing all of that experience and expertise to the table as they enter into this partnership with The Stars Group.
The Stars Group (TSG)
The Stars Group is a gaming and online betting and gambling company headquartered in Toronto, Canada. They have a number of games and products that you may have heard of or even played but didn’t realize fell under The Stars Group’s umbrella. Here is a list of some of the most popular games from TSG:
- PokerStars Casino
- Sky Casino
- Full Tilt
The Stars Group is one of the largest gaming operators in the world, and with their brand new partnership with FOX Sports, they’re hoping to become the world’s biggest online gaming provider.
When it launches later in 2019, the FOXBet app will be available for both Android and iOS tablets and mobile devices. Users will be able to access the FoxBet app by visiting the app store and downloading the app. From there you will be able to register, create an account, and set up ways to both make deposits and request withdrawals.
Using the FOXBet app will be a great way for you to continue playing, gambling, and placing bets while on the go, from wherever you are– just make sure that you are always within the state lines of a state where legal online gambling is permitted.
It is expected that the FOXBet app will utilize top of the line encryption software so that your personal and financial information and data will be safe and secure, allowing you to continue playing with peace of mind.
What to expect from FOXBet Sportsbook?
Though a lot of what we can expect from the FOXBet Sportsbook will likely be confirmed when the platform finally launches in the fall of 2019, there are a couple of things that we are anticipating will be available to users of the platform. Here are some of the great things that our experts expect this new platform to offer:
Sports on offer via FOXBet
If they are to prove to be a challenger for the likes of FanDuel and DraftKings, FOX Sports betting is going to have to match the wide variety of sports that users can choose to bet on. In addition, they will also have to offer a range of ways to bet on sports. Here are some of the sports that our experts think are likely to be on offer when the FOXBet app launches:
- Formula One
- Horse Racing
- Track and Field
In addition to offering a range of sports to bet on, they will also likely offer a wide variety of ways to bet. For example, if soccer is the sport you’d like to put a wager on, first you would identify the game you want to bet on. Let’s say it’s Arsenal vs. Manchester United. From there, you would be able to choose to bet on the final score, the first goalscorer, the winner of the match, the first yellow card received and much more!
We expect that they will offer a similar range of ways to bet for all the sports they have on offer as well as up to date odds so that you can make an informed decision when you’re placing a bet.
Bonus and welcome offers
Another thing that FOXBet will need to consider to be competitive in the sports betting market, is that they will need to offer great bonuses and welcome offers to their users. Some of the best bonuses and welcome offers we’ve seen before tend to be those that offer 100% match upon initial deposit. So for example, if upon creating and registering a new account you make an initial deposit of $250, the provider or platform will reward you by matching your initial deposit in full. So your balance would double from $250 to $500!
It is also likely that they will have daily, weekly, and monthly bonus offers and promotions so make sure you are checking the promotions page frequently to access the latest and greatest!
Though we won’t know the exact payment methods until the platform is launched in fall 2019, it can be expected that some of the payment options available will be in addition to others:
- Cash on site
- Wire Transfer
- Pay Near Me
In order to keep up with all that other popular sportsbooks on the market have to offer, FOXBet will need to match some of the other platforms in terms of top-notch customer service. Most of the successful platforms offer 24-hour help desks via email, live chat, phone, or all three. We expect that FOXBet will make sure that they offer their users the very best in customer service to give all users the best experience possible.
Our final thoughts
Both FOX Sports and The Stars Group are experts in their respective fields, and so when they finally launch their eagerly anticipated FOXBet app later this year, it can be expected that it will be an extremely exciting platform to enter the market for those fans of sports betting.
Though a lot remains to be seen with regards to FOXBet sports betting and the FOXBet app, because the two partners are experienced in both the sports and betting industries, it can be widely expected that the sports betting experience they will offer to consumers will be top-notch.
