Our expert opinion on FOXBet Sportsbook New Jersey
Although FOXBet Sportsbook NJ was relatively new to the sports betting world, their easy-to-use interface and vast selection of futures and trending bets made it an appealing option for any bettor in the NJ market.
FOXBet’s social media presence was a nice touch that was surprisingly unique for major sportsbooks. It added another level of interaction for users, and gave players the opportunity to win bonus bets if they participated in their weekly surveys posted on social media every Friday.
While FOXBet’s welcome bonus met all the industry standards, their selection of promos overall was a bit lacking. Their helpdesk was also a bit underwhelming compared to other sportsbooks. They didn't provide a 24/7 hotline to call and seek help, making it more difficult to find solutions to issues.
All in all, FOXBet New Jersey was still a very reliable sportsbook that checked all the required boxes. With a bit more variety, they could have made a claim as the best sportsbook in the NJ market.
