Fox Bet Sportsbook Review
We couldn’t be any more excited writing our FoxBet review, with the online gambling landscape in New Jersey set to receive a major shake-up with two giant companies combining their powers. Fox Sports and the Stars Group have combined their considerable clout to deliver FoxBet Sports Book, a regulated betting option first set to launch in New Jersey. New Jersey bettors and the industry as a whole has to be excited about this venture between these well-known brands.
This Fox Bet review will be based on the Stars Group BetStars sportsbook site in New Jersey, as well as on their international platform. Here we will look at markets covered, bet types, bonuses and promotions, banking issues, the mobile sportsbook, and customer service. The Fox Bet sportsbook will be very similar to the BetStars site considering they are both under the Stars Group umbrella, sharing many things including a great loyalty program and no lack of sports to bet on as well as bet types available.
When Fox Bet sportsbook is launched it is to be expected that New Jersey players that have an account at BetStars will transfer over to the newer site. It will also be simple to set up an account and it will also be easier if you are an existing member of BetStars as well as PokerStars. There will be the typical things to fill out when opening a new account, as Fox Bet will need to verify your identity and you will need to scan your ID when you want withdrawals from your account processed.

Fox Bet is a unique site unlike others online, as they list their sports on the top of the landing page rather than the side. This makes it simple to find any sport you are looking for and while they have many sports there they also have a Sports A-Z link that you can click and see all of the sports that the site covers and has odds posted for.
On the main site you can see highlights of games and matches, various promotions offered, results, and in-play events. The in-play betting is live betting and there are quite a few betting options for that and there is also a mobile Fox Bet sportsbook available. There is also an odds boost option where featured events of the day will have better than typical odds. There is a Bet Slip at Foxbet sportsbook as well, which makes is simple to keep track of your wagers on the site.
Before launch of the Fox Bet New Jersey sportsbook you can also visit their URL Foxbet.com. Here you can sign up for the waitlist for the sportsbook app by simply giving your name and e-mail address.

FoxBet Mobile Sportsbook & Apps
Through Fox Bet you have a couple of options when playing on your mobile device, as you can play straight from the browser or download the Fox Bet sportsbook application. If you have the BetStars NJ sportsbook app you will automatically be switched over to the Fox Bet application during an update. The Fox Bet NJ sportsbook website is responsive and will fit to your screen size, but many players like the applications more.
The application is available for Android and iPhone users; and Android users have to download the app from the main Fox Bet sportsbook website while iPhone users can download the app from the Apple Store. The mobile sportsbook is very functional and allows you to take advantage of sports betting on the go! There are not only the betting markets, live betting, and bet types available but also cash-out betting, customer service, and banking issues.

Banking Options at Foxbet New Jersey
Fox Bet New Jersey sportsbook offers their members quite a few ways to deposit money into their account as well as withdraw it. Most of the processing times are instant and the withdrawal times will depend on what banking option you choose. The minimum and maximum deposits will also differ, and you can read about them on the Fox Bet sportsbook website.
Deposit methods at Fox Bet
- ACH and e-check – This is a type of instant check that is drawn directly from your bank account. The processing time is instant using this deposit option.
- Visa – Visa is one of the most reputable credit cards and the processing time is instant.
- Mastercard – Just like Visa, Mastercard is a reputable card and when using to fund your Fox Bet sportsbook account the processing time is instant.
- PayPal – This is a 3rd party e-wallet that has instant processing time.
- PokerStars Prepaid Card – This prepaid card works on all of the PokerStars sites as well as at Fox Bet sportsbook.
- PayNearMe – You can use PayNearMe to fund your account at any 7-11 store in New Jersey.
- Neteller – 3rd party e-wallet with instant processing time.
- Skrill – 3rd party e-wallet with instant processing time.
- Cash at Cage – You can fund your sportsbook account at the cashier’s cage in person at the Resorts Casino in Atlantic City.
To protect against things such as money laundering and fraud it is always a good idea to use a withdrawal method that you used to deposit funds. However, that is not always possible, as at Fox Bet NJ sportsbook you cannot withdraw funds using Visa or Mastercard, cash, or bill pay.
You can withdraw funds using PayPal, ACH and e-checks, and by prepaid cards. The time to pay out will usually take 2-3 business days. If you use a deposit method that cannot be used for a withdrawal method, you can get paid out by a check. This is a very reliable way to withdrawal money, but also the slowest, as it will take 10-14 days for you to receive the check via mail.
One of the main things that may change with the rebrand is the customer service department. BetStars is a very reputable and legitimate site, but they do not have a great customer service department, as they cannot be reached via live chat or phone, only an e-mail form on the site. Fox Bet may change that but will likely not change is the extensive FAQ section.
You can be sure that Fox Bet sportsbook is one that is legitimate and safe to play at with Fox Sports and the Stars Group backing them. They have a license from the New Jersey Gaming Commission, and they take player security seriously.
