FOX Bet is available in Pennsylvania as an iOS or Android app and through the web. It is backed by Mt. Airy Casino Resort and offers online betting to all users over 21 in Pennsylvania.
Here’s what you need to know about FOXBet’s Pennsylvania app.
How To Download The FOX Bet App in PA
FOX Bet PA is available to play in Pennsylvania through a website or app.
Interestingly, it is a separate app from what is available in New Jersey and called “FOX Bet Pennsylvania.” So you need to select the right download links otherwise you won’t be able to deposit and bet.

What Makes It So Good
I’ve spent the last few days testing FOX Bet and came away impressed. It’s hard to put your finger on, but FOX Bet comes with an engaging quality that other sports betting apps in PA don’t seem to have. Maybe it’s the inclusion of FOX Sports personalities, maybe it’s the straightforward interface, or maybe it’s the added features like live gamecasts and win probability that make the app stickier than what’s available. Regardless, the user experience is a positive one.
FOX Bet, like its previous iteration, BetStars, features an array of fun and useful odds boosts. They are enhanced by their ties to individual FOX personalities. There seems to be actual value in what’s being offered up through boosts and risk-free bet offers. It feels like there might actually be an edge to these offers. Whereas other sportsbook daily promos seem to come from marketing quants to extract the maximum betting handle for a given event, you feel like what’s being offered in FOX Bet is less considered and might actually have some upside.
There are a few areas for improvement. The app does feel like a 1.0, but I’ve yet to find a legal sports betting app that doesn’t feel a bit more raw than popular mainstream mobile apps. Likely due to required login and geolocation checks, or perhaps the need to load large databases, online sportsbooks tend to be a bit more sluggish. This is occasionally the case with FOX Bet in PA, but otherwise the app is great, intuitive, and in my testing, free from any major usability issues. It’s… fun.
FOX Bet Will Be Huge
FanDuel already leads the market in PA, according to the recent revenue report. FOX Bet’s PA app may be uniquely positioned to cut into their lead.
The app offers betting on a wide range of sports well beyond just the major American sports, but it will undoubtedly focus heavily on football as all betting apps do. FOX Sports, of course, carries the coveted 1:00 PM Sunday time slot for the NFL, and there is no doubt they plan to promote the site heavily on their broadcasts and other properties.
In the early going, they are already using FOX Sports personalities to brand the app:
A recent survey found that more people were likely to bet with a FOX branded app than DraftKings. That instantly puts them at the top of the pecking order, at least when it comes to the brand name.
FOX Bet becomes the fifth PA online sportsbook to launch this year, expected to be followed in a few weeks by DraftKings Sportsbook PA. But it is currently our choice for the best app for Pennsylvania bettors.
