It’s been a little over a year since FOX Bet launched its first online sportsbook in America. The site first came about in August 2019 after the state of New Jersey voted to legalize online sports betting. Its launch coincided with the start of the 2019/20 NFL season and since then, the brand has never looked back.
As more areas of the US voted to liberalize the online sports betting industry, FOX Bet is now licensed to provide online sports betting to three US states, in the shape of New Jersey, Colorado and Pennsylvania. Its Super 6 service is also available to play for free. The legalization of the industry in Michigan suggests that the sportsbook will expand further still among sports fans in the Midwest.
If you were unaware that FOX Sports had teamed up with The Stars Group to provide a new and exciting online sportsbook, read on as we review the platform’s latest Android app, designed to make it easier than ever to place sports wagers on the move.

First and foremost, it’s important to be aware that the FOX Bet Android app utilizes geolocation technology to help pinpoint the location of its users. This is part of the terms of service for using the FOX Bet app, ensuring that all its bettors are situated within its licensed states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Colorado. Nevertheless, anyone aged 21 or older is legally allowed to create a FOX Bet account. You just have to be located within the state lines of NJ, PA or CO to place a bet.
How to download the FOX Bet app
To download the FOX Bet app your smartphone or tablet device must be running at least Android 4.4 or higher. Given that Google Play does not permit any real-money betting apps in its library, you must download the app from the FOX Bet site. You’ll be prompted to install the FOX Bet APK and click ‘OK’ when prompted in the pop-up box. The app takes a matter of seconds to download providing you are on 4G or you are connected to private Wi-Fi.
FOX Bet’s #CustomBet feature
One of the most unique features of the FOX Bet app is that you can request your very own odds on prop bets through the app. You are directed to tweet the FOX Bet Twitter handle using the hashtag #CustomBet and you’ll be able to set up your own prop bet and requested odds to see if the FOX Bet traders will take you up on the bet. It’s not always guaranteed that they will accept your custom bets, but providing you don’t send in anything too outlandish there’s a good chance you’ll get a taker.
Odds Boost for app users
Every day, users of the FOX Bet app can also take full advantage of the Odds Boost feature. Specific betting markets on upcoming sporting events will see their odds boosted, giving you potentially bigger payouts on a daily basis. The Odds Boost button is prominent on the app, making it easy to see which markets have been given a lift.
Team and player stats and handicapping tools at your fingertips
There are few better sports betting apps than FOX Bet when it comes to helping you make informed decisions on the markets. The major league sports provide you with access to the latest team and player data, as well as a string of handicapping tools to help you beat the points spreads. Within the app, there is also the chance to catch the thoughts of some of the leading FOX analysts including Colin Cowherd, Cris Carter and Nick Wright. All of whom can provide unique insight into the upcoming betting markets before you place a single selection in your Bet Slip.
At the time of writing, live streaming of sports is not included in the FOX Bet app, but reports suggest this functionality is not too far away for Android users. These innovative betting features combined with FOX Sports’ excellent live coverage would surely give this app the edge over other US sportsbooks.
