From its launch in Summer 2019, FOXBet Sportsbook quickly made a name for themselves in the sports betting ecosystem. Thanks to a partnership between media titan FOX and The Stars Group, which owns and operates PokerStars, FOXBet opened up shop in New Jersey on August 31, 2019, giving NJ residents another reliable betting operator to wager with.

Unfortunately, FOXBet closed operations in New Jersey in July 2023, and closed as a sportsbook generally.

In this review, we’ll cover everything you needed to know before signing up for FOXBet New Jersey, which betting markets were available for NJ bettors, and our expert opinion of the former sportsbook.

Is FOXBet Sportsbook live in New Jersey?

No, FOXBet Sportsbook is not live in New Jersey. They stopped taking bets on July 31, 2023, in the state, and they closed operations generally in August of the same year.

How you could sign up for FOXBet Sportsbook in New Jersey

Signing up for FOXBet Sportsbook in New Jersey took a bit longer than the sign-up process for other sportsbooks, but it still didn't take much longer than 10 minutes to complete. As long as you had a laptop or mobile device with internet access, you were ready to get started. Here are the steps you needed to take.

  1. You opened up the FOXBet Sportsbook app or visited their website. Once you reached the homepage, you clicked on the blue “Join” button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
  2. In step one of the sign-up process, you were prompted to provide your email address, a username for your account, and a suitable password. After doing so, you clicked “Continue.”
  3. In step two, you needed to confirm you were at least 21 years old and agreed to the sportsbook’s terms and conditions. You could also opt-in to receive emails on special offers, promotions, and news from FOXBet. This was completely optional.
  4. Then, you hit “Create Account,” and you were required to enter your phone number. FOXBet would then send you a four-digit verification code. You entered it and clicked the blue arrow at the bottom of the screen.
  5. You then needed to provide some personal information, which included your full legal name, gender, date of birth, and the last four digits of your Social Security number.
  6. On the following page, you entered your home address in order to verify your location.
  7. After verifying your address, you needed to provide two security questions for your account. These would be used if you ever decided to change your password in the future.
  8. On the next page, you were once again asked to confirm that all the information you entered was correct and that you are at least 21 years old.
  9. You answered three more security questions, and you were all set to begin your New Jersey sports betting venture.

Promos offered by FOXBet Sportsbook New Jersey

FOXBet New Jersey didn't have a very wide selection of NJ betting promos to choose from, but they did employ a welcome bonus for new customers.

Here’s a look at their most common offerings in the past.

  • Welcome Bonus: FOXBet offered a bonus bet of up to $50 if you were a new user and your first bet lost. To ensure you received your welcome bonus, you made sure to opt-in by clicking the “First Bet On Us” promotion under the promotions tab. Qualifying bets must have had odds of at least -200 or longer. If your first bet won, you received your winnings like normal and the promotion was over. If you lost, however, you were awarded a bonus bet equal to the amount you wagered.
  • Parlay Promotions: Every week you placed a $10 bet on a parlay that’s at least three legs in length, you received a $5 bonus bet the following week. The odds for the parlay must have been at least -200 or longer in order to qualify.
  • Friday Bonus Bets: As long as you followed @FOXBet on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you had the opportunity to win one of five $100 bonus bet credits. All you needed to do is answer the question FOX Bet posts on social media on Friday at 8 a.m. and you were eligible to win. Most of the time, the questions were completely subjective.
  • Daily Odds Boosts: You were able to find a variety of daily odds boosts whenever you logged in to your FOX Bet account. If you were unfamiliar with how odds boosts work, they were pretty straightforward. The odds for specific bets were increased from their original odds, which in turn increased the potential winnings without increasing your wager.

Sports you were able to bet on with FOXBet Sportsbook New Jersey

FOXBet Sportsbook allowed their users to bet on a variety of major college and professional sports across several different leagues, both domestically and internationally.

Here were the top options for NJ users.

  • Football: Despite not having an NFL team in the state, both the New York Giants and New York Jets play their home games in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Both the Jets and Giants are among the biggest brands in the sport.
  • Basketball: While football accounts for the majority of the revenue generated by sports betting, basketball isn’t too far behind. In New Jersey, there’s a dedicated Brooklyn Nets following, stemming from their days as the New Jersey Nets.
  • Hockey: Ever since they left Colorado and became the New Jersey Devils in 1982, the Devils have held it down as the only NHL team in the state.
  • Baseball: Like the NFL, MLB does not have a team in New Jersey. However, there’s still a vast New York Yankees and New York Mets following in the state.

Did FOXBet Sportsbook have a retail location in New Jersey?

Technically, FOXBet Sportsbook did not have a retail location in New Jersey. However, the Resorts Casino in Atlantic City was FOXBet’s land-based casino partner, meaning you were able to make deposits and withdrawals at their casino cage.

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.

Betting NJ has given FOXBet Sportsbook New Jersey an overall rating of 4 out of 5. This rating is based on the following criteria:

  • Welcome Bonus: Rating 4/5. FOXBet’s welcome bonus is pretty standard among sportsbooks. We’d appreciate it if the welcome bonus still applied even if the first bet wins, but it’s certainly not a deal breaker.
  • Payment Options: Rating 5/5. Whether you’re depositing or withdrawing funds, you won’t have any issues finding a suitable payment method with FOXBet New Jersey.
  • Sportsbook App: Rating 5/5. FOXBet’s mobile app is easy to navigate and offers plenty of betting options right on the home page. Its sleek design helps it stand out and it runs smoothly on both Apple and Android devices.
  • Variety and Features: Rating 4/5. If FOXBet wants to separate themselves from the rest of the sports betting industry, adding more features to their selection would go a long way. They offer all of the standard betting options and features we’ve come to expect from major sportsbooks, but they don’t offer much that we can categorize as “unique.”
  • Customer Support: Rating 4/5. FOXBet offers a FAQ section for users, but the lack of 24/7 customer support through a phone number is, frankly, a little surprising. It’s typically a standard practice among sportsbooks in New Jersey.
