Another sports betting app has launched in Pennsylvania this past week. Fox Bet – Pennsylvania (in partnership with Mount Airy Casino) made its way to the Keystone State in time for the start of the 2019 NFL season. The app, which is separate from the Fox Bet app offered in New Jersey, is available for both iOS and Android. Fox Bet becomes the fifth online sports betting option in Pennsylvania

Fox Bet Pennsylvania Pros and Cons
Overall, the Fox Bet Pennsylvania app is a solid sports betting option. There are plenty of pros when it comes to the Fox Bet Pennsylvania app. There is a great selection of betting options, including some you won’t find and most other sportsbooks, like darts. The app has an excellent appearance and is very easy to navigate. All of the different sports options are listed in a sliding bar on top of the screen. There is also a tab in the top right-hand corner that users can click to show a list of all of the available sports to bet on.
The home page also features a list of popular betting options as well as a promotions tab. The amount of promotions that Fox Bet offers is also excellent. New users get $20 Free Cash when they sign up. Fox Bet also offers a first-time deposit bonus of up to $100. They also offer daily promotions from a number of Fox analysts that provide odds boosts and money-back guarantees on losing bets. Some of these analysts include Chris Carter, Colin Cowherd, Clay Travis, and Charissa Thompson.
The only noticeable downfall at this point is the Fox Bet live chat customer service. While it is nice that they offer live chat support, it appears to be almost non-existent at this point. When I accessed their live support for a simple question regarding the $20 free cash bonus I waited over 15 minutes and received no response. After waiting in the “queue 1” position for 17 minutes I exited out of the chat and never received a response for my question. Being that the app is still new, small inconveniences like this are expected.
Fox Bet in Other States
Pennsylvania is the second state that Fox Bet has launched in (New Jersey being the other). Fox Bet was created due to a partnership with Fox Sports and BetStars (The Stars Group). Earlier this year, The Stars Group entered into a partnership with Penn National Gaming. This partnership will help Fox Bet launch into as many as nine additional states (pending the legalization of sports betting in some of these states):
