FOX Bet PA Online Sportsbook Promo Code And Review – Pending Launch

All was quiet from Mount Airy Casino on sports betting until early April when they finally put up the $10 million application fee. Since that time, Mount Airy has made a few exciting announcements. Their partnership with The Stars Group had already positioned Mount Airy as a favorite to take over the Pennsylvania online poker market with their PokerStars brand, but an early May announcement about The Stars Group forming a partnership with with FOX Sports puts Mount Airy in the drivers seat in the sports betting market, too.

FOX Sports purchased 4.99% of The Stars Group for $236 million with an option to acquire up to 50% in the first ten years. We should see BetStars transition over to FOX Bet in New Jersey by the fall, and could see FOX Bet launch in plenty of emerging markets throughout the country including Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Indiana and Iowa over the next few years.

FOX Bet Online Sportsbook Promo Code and Bonuses

We can only assume that the FOX Bet’s welcome package will be similar to the offerings from BetStars in New Jersey, which is one of the most generous promotions in the market. The welcome package in New Jersey includes:

  • Free Bet up to a $500 : Place your first sports bet and if it loses, it will be refunded 100% up to $500 in the form of a free bet.
  • Weekly Bonus Club: Wager $25 between Monday and Sunday, receive a $5 bonus bet. Wager $50 and get two $5 bonus bets, and wager $100 and get two $5 bonus bets and a $10 spin and go ticket.
  • Extra Inning Insurance: If your MLB moneyline bet loses in Extra Innings, receive a bonus bet up to $20.
  • Various Seasonal Promos: Other promos include NBA Overtime insurance, 80+minute soccer insurance and early cashouts. Check the ever updating promotions page.

What advantages will FOX Bet have in the PA market?

  • Experience: The Stars Group is one of the most experienced online gaming companies in the world. Most well known for their PokerStars brand, their BetStars offering has been thriving in New Jersey, giving then a leg up on any PA competition that is starting from scratch.
  • Partnerships: Combining the gambling experience of The Stars Group with media giant FOX Sports seems like a match made in heaven. FOX Sports adds name recognition, as well as free advertising during some of the biggest moments in sports including the Super Bowl, World Series and international soccer matches. The partnership also brings an air of legitimacy to what some may see as a black market.
  • Shared wallet with Sportsbooks/Casino/Poker: PokerStars stands to make a huge splash in the PA online poker market alongside FOX Bet, and should be strong contender for #1 in sports betting. Adding the convenience of making it a one-stop-shop, and you have a strong recipe for success.
