And when you join FOX Bet, you enjoy several additional promotional bonuses including super-boosted odds, a weekly free, and bet requests on any market.

FOX Bet Sportsbook bonus offer in Michigan
When you make your first bet on FOX Bet you will have a risk free bet up to $500! This means that you can place any bet up to $500. If that bet loses, you’ll receive the amount you lost back in bonus funds. If your bet wins, the bet will be paid out as normal, but you won’t receive a rebate on your bet.
Please note that the wager refund of your lost bet is contingent on your wager of -200 odds or tighter. For example, you can place a bet on +120 odds, but not -500 odds.
The free bet will be credited within 24 hours of your bet being settled, and it will expire after 30 days.

You’ll earn a $10 free bet every week when you place $50 in parlay bets throughout the week as part of their FOX Bet Parlay Club.
Using Twitter and Facebook, you can win free bets from FOX Bet during Winner Wednesday and Free Bet Friday.

Back on the home screen, you’ll find a trio of tabs labeled popular, promotions, and results, just like the web-based platform. The option to choose what type of odds (American, decimal, fractional) is to the right of these tabs.
The “Popular” section includes all the same blocks as the website but in a different order. It begins with “Available Promotions,” followed by the “Bet Boost” block, “Trending #custombet” block, “Main” betting block, “As seen on FOX Sports” block, and “Trending” bet block.

- Aussie Rules Football
- Beach Volleyball

FOX Bet sports betting options
FOX Bet has most of the usual betting options on their sportsbook, including moneylines, spreads, totals (over/under), parlays, and round-robin bets. They offer boosted odds on a number of these bets as well. These types of bets take the odds that the sportsbook would normally give you and make them more advantageous to the bettor. For example, if the New York Mets were +150 underdogs to win a game, FOX Bet might offer them at +200 odds to win that same game.
Live betting is also on offer. These bets change as the game progresses, but you can watch a game in real-time and implement your ideal betting strategy. This often helps you get the best lines possible. For instance, a team might be a seven-point favorite before the game starts, but after the opposing team scores a touchdown, they could end up being a three-point favorite for the remainder of the game.
If you’re looking for futures bets, FOX Bet has plenty available. These are bets on distant future events. Future bets keep your money tied up for quite some time but generally offer significantly better odds than other bets. For example, you can bet on who will win the Super Bowl throughout the NFL season or who will win the Heisman trophy during the NCAA college football season. FOX Bet also allows players to bet on specific events happening during a game. These bets are known as prop bets. With these types of bets, for example, you can bet on whether Julio Jones will score the first touchdown in a game or if Matt Ryan will score more than three touchdowns in a game. Similarly, FOX Bet also offers partial-game bets. These bets allow you to place bets on what will happen by halftime in a football, soccer, or basketball game, the first five innings in a baseball game, or the first period in a hockey game.
Finally, you can take advantage of the cash out options, which allow you to cash out your bets before the end of the game or match, but you’ll receive worse odds than if you let the bet play out. For example, if you bet on the Detroit Lions as +200 underdogs, and they are winning in the fourth quarter, you can cash out your bet, but you won’t receive the full +200 odds. This allows you to profit without risking bad beats late in the game.
