Looking for a suitable sportsbook app to place wagers on your favorite sports? Then you’re in luck because in this review, we’re assessing the capabilities of the new FOX Bet service.
The FOX Bet Android app has been designed exclusively for legalized wagering in the US. Those currently living in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Colorado can use the FOX Bet platform to bet on the go with a host of secure and trusted payment methods accepted, all of which we’ll discuss below.
How to download the FOX Bet app
There are four simple steps to install the FOX Bet app onto your Android smartphone or tablet. Locate the download page of the FOX Bet Android app. Hit the download button. If your Chrome browser states that your device is “not allowed to install unknown apps from this source”, tap the “Settings” button and toggle the “Allow from this source” button. The download will continue, the installation will unpack and when prompted to install the application hit the “Install” button. Simple.
Deposit and withdrawal options
There are two easy ways to deposit funds into your FOX Bet app. First and foremost, if you already use the operator’s online poker room client, it is possible to transfer the balance in your poker account across to your sportsbook account. It’s equally straightforward to place real-money deposits in your FOX Bet account via the mobile cashier page. You can deposit using Visa, MasterCard, and PayNearMe banking options, as well as the latest e-wallets such as Skrill and Neteller, which can be hooked up to your account via the app.
Withdrawals can also be processed to your bank accounts and e-wallets, but just bear in mind that it can take up to three working days for these to be finalized from when you make your payout request.
Available sports to bet on
Despite being a relatively new player in the US sportsbook market, FOX Bet already covers an extensive number of sports to bet on pre-game and in-play. As it caters exclusively for the American market, you will not be surprised to find that the Major League sports have the best coverage here. Most notably NBA basketball, NFL football, MLB baseball and the NHL ice hockey. Most Major League brands have their own apps that fans can use to get information on their favorite athletes and teams before betting. For example, the official NFL app keeps fans updated with the latest news, as well as the latest trades during the annual NFL Draft. At the top of the app’s navigation menu, you’ll find one-touch links to the most popular sports. Alternatively, you can tap the “In-Game” button to view all available in-play betting markets at the time.
Soccer is another fast-emerging sport in the US and Canada and Major League Soccer is another brand that’s well represented in the FOX Bet app. That’s alongside other leading sports such as motorsport (NASCAR and F1), golf, mixed martial arts (MMA) and tennis.
Types of betting markets available
Within all of the sports available to bet on via the FOX Bet app, there are a wide variety of betting markets to suit. It’s possible to wager on individual games or events like the match odds or moneyline markets, as well as multiple-game bets known as parlays or accumulators. Finally, you can also place futures and prop bets on speculative outcomes at the end of a sporting season or championship, such as the potential winner of a division or league.
It’s incredibly easy to add selections to your betslip within the FOX Bet app. Just tap the odds next to your chosen selection to add it to your slip. Choose whether you want to bet on the selection individually or as part of a parlay, followed by the size of your stake and away you go.
FOX Bet customer support
A quick shout out should also go to the FOX Bet customer support available through the Android app. There is a comprehensive FAQs section which answers most of the typical queries you might have about making bets on mobile. You can also email the 24/7 helpdesk via the FOX Bet app making this one of the most customer-friendly sportsbook apps on the market.
