The new online sports betting site, Fox Bet, is due to a partnership between the Stars Group and media giant Fox. Fox Bet is a rebrand for BetStars NJ, which was the site formed by PokerStars and Resorts Atlantic City. The site is now known exclusively as Fox Bet.
Fox is not the first media company to stake a claim in the New Jersey online sports betting market. Earlier this year, the Bleacher Report joined Caesars to produce content for their online sportsbook product.

Fox Bet will most likely stick to the Star Rewards program, which rewards players across the Star Groups ventures, including casino, poker and sports betting.
Your play will earn rewards points that you can track with a progress bar. As you earn points, they collect in treasure chests that contain bonus play and “StarCoins.” You can redeem your earnings at the Stars Rewards’ store.
Fox Bet NJ promotions
Fox Bet will offer an extensive promotional schedule. Currently, Fox Bet NJ offers several promotions, including bet insurance and free bets. The promotional schedule will likely follow popular sporting events.
Fox Bet app
The Fox Bet mobile app is available for both iOS and Android devices. Apple users will find the app for download in the app store.
Android users will need to download from the www.FoxBet.com site. Unfortunately, the Google Play store does not allow online gambling websites currently.
Gambling applications require players to use geolocation technology to make sure they are within state borders. Some players may experience problems if they are near the state border or bodies of water. These bugs can typically be fixed by connecting to Wi-Fi or contacting customer support.
Banking at Fox Bet NJ
FoxBet NJ is making things easy for its players to deposit and withdraw.
While banking was an issue in the early days of online gambling in the US, there are now many reliable options for banking. You will be able to bank using the following options:
- ACH or e-check: This is an instant check that withdraws from your bank account. You will have access to the fund immediately in your account, but the money will take a few days to withdraw from your bank account, much like clearing a check.
- Visa or Mastercard: One of the most popular options would be to use one of these credit or debit cards.
- PayPal: This is a popular option, especially for those who don’t want their bank account attached to a gambling site. This option is a third-party wallet and offers you an added layer of protection.
- PokerStars Prepaid Card: This prepaid card works on all PokerStars ventures including casino, poker and sports betting.
- PayNearMe: Use this option to create a barcode and pay in person at any 7-Eleven convenience store.
- Neteller or Skrill: Much like PayPal, these options are popular third-party wallets.
- Cash at the cage: You can fund your account with cash at the cage at Resorts Atlantic City.
Before you can withdraw, you will need to pass the previously mentioned KYC verification to prevent fraud.
