FOX Bet’s Pennsylvania footprint is a collaboration between Mount Airy Casino, media behemoth FOX Sports, and The Stars Group, the parent company behind online poker leader PokerStars.
The site was originally known as BetStars when it first launched in New Jersey, but changed its name in August 2019 after a partnership deal was struck between FOX Sports and TSG. It went live in PA for the first time the following month.
Beyond its stellar branding, FOX Bet’s Pennsylvania offering boasts world-class desktop and mobile software, with a user experience that’s hard to match. In addition, the site’s welcome bonus package is easy to understand and one that you shouldn’t pass up, even though it has a relatively low cap.
Let’s break down all that FOX Bet PA has to offer, shall we?
FOX Bet is offering new customers a $50 second chance bet just for signing up an account, when you use any of the links found on this page.

|Welcome Offer||$50 Second Chance Bet|
|Software partners||The Stars Group|
|Online since||September 2019|
Simply enter your personal details and a valid email address and you are automatically eligible for the $50 Second Chance bet after a quick opt-in. Once you make your first deposit, just make your first bet with odds no longer than -200 and if it comes out a winner, it will be paid out as usual and there is nothing left to do.
If that bet somehow comes up a bit short, don’t worry, FOX Bet has your back with a refund, up to $50, in the form of a free bet. This free bet will be issued within 24 hours of the bet being settled (usually instant) and if it is not used in seven days, it will disappear. It’s important to note that the free bet will only pay profits on winning bets. This means if you place a $100 bet on the Sixers at +200 with cash, it would pay $300 ($100 bet + $200 profit) but the free bet would only pay out the $200 profit. The initial opt-in and wager must be placed within seven days of sign up.
FOX Bet leverages its deep bench of TV personalities in marketing its product, and that extends to on-site promotions.
For example, aside from the welcome package mentioned above, Fox offers an array of Bet Boosts, each of which are endorsed by one of its sports broadcasters. Wagers earmarked for Bet Boosts feature lines that are more favorable to players than they really should be.
For example, television personality Colin Cowherd has promoted a 3-for-3 Super Boost in the past, which gave players extra bang for their buck if they placed a wager on Colin’s preferred picks.
While the personalities featured in the promos may talk sports day and night, just be careful about which bets you choose to make. They may be TV celebrities, but that doesn’t mean they are expert handicappers. Instead look for value, and right now, these promos offer a fair bit of it when taken collectively.
Some online sportsbooks don’t bother with loyalty programs, but that’s not how FOX Bet does business. The site offers returning players additional perks through its rewards program, which is also tied in with FOX Bet’s casino and poker offerings.
The inner workings of the program are a bit complex, but in short, players earn rewards points by placing real money sports bets on the site. The more points they earn, the farther along the program progress bar advances. Once you’ve bet enough to reach a specific target, you’ll be rewarded with a treasure chest, which may hold StarsCoin (which can be spent in the FOX Bet rewards store), cash, free bets and more.
Once you open the chest, you’ll advance to a higher level which teases bigger chests holding better than average rewards than the previous one. If a player is unable to progress all the way to the end of the status bar and open the next chest during a rolling 28 day period, they’ll be knocked down a level for the next period.
Since sports betting is already a low margin business for operators, especially with PA’s massive tax rates, rewards are relatively small. But of course, any reward is better than no reward!
FOX Bet’s partner, The Stars Group, is well known for creating innovative and feature-rich online gambling software, like the much loved PokerStars online poker client and Stars Casino.
That experience has translated to FOX Bet’s Pennsylvania offering, which is available on desktop computers, along with iOS and Android mobile apps.
With FOX Bet’s iOS and Android apps, it’s easy to make bets almost anywhere inside the state. The app is designed beautifully and is packed with nearly all the features that you will find on the full-scale desktop version.
At the top of the app you’ll notice a navigation bar with all of the betting markets offered at the site, which also includes a tab for easy access to in-game bets. Below you’ll see another bar that allows you to quickly access popular bets and ongoing promotions.
Along the bottom of the screen, there are six different tabs that can be used to navigate the app. Players can return to the homescreen at any time by selecting the Home tab. The A-Z tab over to the right will give players access to the full list of available sports markets being offered by FOX Bet.
After selecting some games or events in the A-Z tab, players can view all pending action in the Betslip tab. Whether it is a game waiting to be locked in or a previously settled wager, any and all action will be handled in the Betslip tab.
Both the Casino and Poker tabs are extremely self-explanatory. Clicking on either of these tabs will bring users into the online casino or online poker room. As previously mentioned, the same wallet is used for FOX Bet’s sportsbook, casino, and poker entities, so players can switch between the three without having to deal with any extra banking!
The sixth and final tab listed at the bottom of the app is labeled Account. Packed to the gills with information, players can use this tab to view their Challenges, make deposits and withdrawals, view betting history, view active player rewards, and much, much more.
Overall, this is a masterful app; one that accomplishes the rare task of balancing appeasing visuals with high functionality, and loads of features.
To make wagers on FOX Bet, there is no need to download any software client, you can simply navigate directly to the FOX Bet website and place your bet directly on the page.
Players will, however, be required to download a geolocation plug-in that will allow FOX Bet to confirm their location. Smartphones already have this technology built-in, so desktop computers usually require an extra step before players can successfully place any legal wagers on them.
The FOX Bet desktop offering is very easy on the eyes, and features a sleek and modern design which lays out a complex array of information cleanly, making it easy to digest. The only major difference between the mobile app and desktop version of FOX Bet is that players using a desktop computer will be able to easily view their Betslip tab at all times, located on the left hand side of the screen.
One of the many perks of a shared wallet with PokerStars is that you can access all three entities through one app. This makes the FOX Bet app a one-stop-shop for poker, casino and of course sports betting. Players can access both the online casino and poker room at any time using the tabs at the bottom of the mobile app.
Upon clicking the casino tab, users will be taken into what looks like its own separate app. The casino section of FOX Bet comes complete with game recommendations, featured games, and tons of casino-specific promotions. They offer an endless selection of games, from blackjack to roulette to jackpot slots.
The poker tab has a lot less going on, with no promotions or special offers listed at all. Players can select their table based on buy-in, total players involved, or total prize pool. The ability to play a poker game on the same app where you can place a sports bet is one of the many unique features of FOX Bet.
One of the best ways to send customers running to a competitor is to offer insufficient banking methods. Fortunately, FOX Bet has added the most popular methods, but as of yet does not allow funding via wire transfer, cash at the casino cage or paper checks. However, those could certainly be added in the near future, and the methods available now should be enough to service most customers. Here’s how you can make a deposit:
There are a couple of major flaws with FOX Bet’s cashier. Notably the starting limits are awfully low, ranging from just $500 – $1,000 daily for most methods. Secondly, the cashier hasn’t implemented a cash at the Mount Airy casino cage option yet, so all banking will have to take place on the FOX Bet app or website until further notice.
When you make your first withdrawal, the FOX Bet app will only allow you to select the same method that was used for your initial deposit. Players will need to make a deposit of at least $10 with the banking method of their choice in order to successfully withdraw funds using that method.
At the moment, FOX Bet users can only choose between PayPal, Instant eChecks, and Play+ prepaid cards if looking to withdraw funds from their account. While this is a bit limited, each of these methods is safe, reliable, and most importantly fast when it comes to delivering the goods.
We’re hoping to see many more withdrawal methods added in the future. Otherwise, FOX Bet stands the risk of losing business to its fiercest competitors.
It really doesn’t matter how pleasing a sportsbook’s aesthetic is if the lines are poor. In this category, FOX Bet is a decidedly mixed bag, with some very competitive or even above average lines, and some head-scratching ones.
Moneylines across most major sports are competitive, and miles better than what’s typically found on Parx Sportsbook, but they do lag slightly behind FanDuel. For NFL, point spreads are usually the typical -110, with the occasional +100/-118 oddball. Fair enough.
As for parlays, two-leg pt. spreads are priced out at +264, with three-leggers paying +596. One cool feature on FOX Bet, is that the more parlay legs added, the more the site will boost the payout, starting at 5% on three-leggers, and accelerating from there.
Future pricing is roughly average. However, FOX Bet has a tendency to be a bit contrarian, so players may find the market’s best value on select teams. On the flip side, pricing on other teams may be market worst. Shop around.
As for one-way player props like 1st touchdown scorer, the pricing is pretty mediocre, with better value typically found elsewhere.
With upwards of 15 betting markets, gamblers will have no trouble finding all but the most obscure sports and events on FOX Bet. The number of sports available rivals local competitors, which rely on other companies, like Kambi, to set those options.
Here are some of the markets on offer right now:
Again, mixed. FOX Bet offers a lot of the standard fare, including point spreads, totals, money lines, parlays, futures, and derivatives. Less obscure options like round robins, and early cash-outs can also be found on the site. And of course, in-play is widely available, and here FOX Bet does a tremendous job, offering a variety of in-play wagers across many betting markets.
Over the last few years, FOX Bet has done an incredible job of keeping up with the times, adding tons of new player prop options to their repertoire. FOX Bet also implemented their own ‘Same Game Parlay’ builder, which allows users to parlay as many selections from a single game as they’d like. Same Game Parlays are an extremely popular bet type at the moment, being offered by nearly every major sportsbook.
The retail sportsbook at Mount Airy got a late start, launching in September 2019, a short time after its online counterpart went live.
The book was built inside the former 7,000 square foot Gypsy’s Lounge and shares a space with a 12-table PokerStars-branded poker room.
While certainly not as lavish as say, Parx’s sportsbook, Mount Airy does the job with four self-service kiosks inside the sportsbook, four kiosks spread through the casino floor, teller windows, plenty of big screen TVs, and heavy FOX Bet branding throughout.
Before FOX Sports got involved with Mount Airy, the casino announced that it had inked a deal with The Stars Group to offer online casino, poker and sports betting in the state.
Mount Airy was one of the nine casinos to fork over the $10 million fee to offer all three iGaming verticals in July 2018. It waited some nine months later to officially request its sports betting license, which came at the cost of an additional $10 million.
In May 2019, TSG announced a partnership with Fox Sports. Fox and TSG would create a new sportsbook, branded FOX Bet, which essentially entailed rebranding and reskinning TSG’s old online sports betting app, BetStars, with the FOX Sports color scheme and logo.
Three months later, the company relaunched the newly christened sportsbook in New Jersey. A week after that, FOX Bet went live in Pennsylvania.
