Fox Bet, the new sports betting application from Fox Sports, has just entered the regulated sports betting and online betting market in Pennsylvania, following its recent worldwide launch in New Jersey.
In this way, New Jersey will become the first state that will use the betting application. The constant agreement of two parties. Fox Bet was also launched in NJ just before the start of the 2019 NFL season, to receive real money bets.
Fox Bet, born from the partnership between Fox TV and The Stars Group, will operate in the states that currently offer legal and regulated sports betting. Also where The Stars Group (BetStars) is approved.
Pennsylvania is the second state to enjoy the Fox Bet app after the alliance signed between The Stars Group and Mount Airy Casino based in that state, which took place earlier this year.
Soon the residents of Pennsylvania will be able to enjoy these sports advantages and the basketball, soccer and hockey leagues to bet on.
The Fox Bet site also has mobile versions that can be downloaded to smartphones as well as Android and Apple tablets.
In addition to betting and odds options, FoxBet offers PA users integrated access to content, plus Fox Sports statistics and instant scores.
Both the website and the application will publish breaking sports news and comments from experts and personalities during the broadcasts.
“As of today, Pennsylvania has access to one of the world’s leading regulated sports betting experiences. Together with Fox Sports, an icon in sports programming, we have built a platform that looks like nothing the United States has seen,” FoxBet CEO Robin Chhabra
He added that in this way the site is:
“Bringing fans closer to the games they love by making our platform more fun and engaging than any other that exists.”
FoxBet comes to replace BetStars in the NJ market (the former brand The Stars Group). The 25-year partnership signed last May between Fox Sports and BetStars establishes the purchase of a 4.99% stake in BetStars by Fox Corporation.
The launch in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania land casinos: Parx Casino, Hollywood Casino and PlaySugerHouse, can successfully test online casinos in mid-July when they were launched which facilitated the launch of online games throughout the state and the entry of several operators such as SBTech, NetEnt, Evolution Gaming and Amelco.
The launch of FoxBet could not be most timely as it coincided with the announcement of the Board of Control and Games of Pennsylvania, about the success of the month of July in terms of income from sports betting.
Revenue by order of 2.9 million dollars, represents an increase in revenue of 100.7% compared to June, receiving “the main sports and league advantages”.
New Jersey is the first
The new brand was launched first in NY and then in PA. In New Jersey, NetEnt made its debut recently with DraftKings.
In this regard Erik Nyman, managing director of the NetEnt subsidiary in the United States said:
“DraftKings has a large player base and we are sure they will enjoy our casino games portfolio. Players in the United States can also expect a very exciting roadmap of games that will be released during the rest of the year and beyond.”
Another operator of sports betting games that was also approved by the New Jersey Games Application Division, was Canadian digital media company TheScore.
Its founder and CEO, John Levy stressed the importance of this fact:
“This is a significant moment for scoring, becoming the first media company in North America to announce its planes launching online and mobile sports bets in the United States.”
He also mentioned that:
“Sports betting has long been part of our company’s DNA in the way we have delivered content to fans. Providing the chance to really bet on games is the next natural phase of theScore.”
