Here’s what you need to know about FOX’s Pennsylvania betting app.
FOX Bet PA App
FOX Bet PA is available to play through a website or an iOS and Android app. Interestingly, it is a separate app from what is available in New Jersey and called “FOX Bet Pennsylvania.” This differs from FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKings Sportsbook, both of which offer the same app across multiple states, though the latter is not yet available in Pennsylvania.

The app includes branding from Mt. Airy Casino Resort.
Users can sign up here to get $1,000 free. This consists of a $500 risk-free bet and an up to $500 deposit bonus.
This is a new offer from FOX Bet.
FOX Bet offers the following deposit methods in Pennsylvania:
- credit or debit card
- check (recommended option)
- PayNearMe at 7-11
- Stars Transfer
We had no issues getting signed up or depositing funds. FOX Bet PA doesn’t yet offer an online banking option in PA, so we recommend using echeck (routing and account number) to deposit your funds– it was quick and seamless. Keep in mind, all of this is regulated by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, so you can be sure it is secure.

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.
