Kip Levin, FOX Bet CEO, recently invited NFL fans to grab their chance at $250,000 in prizes, by downloading the FOX Bet Super 6 app. The big giveaway happened on Super Bowl Sunday, as a grand finale for FOX Bet’s wildly successful NFL season.
Levin emphasized that fans wanting to participate in FOX Bet Super 6’s Super Bowl contest don’t need to be in the four states where sports betting is legal to play; that’s because the game does not technically involve gambling. FOX Bet Super 6 is available in every state, except Washington state.
Since launching in September 2019, FOX Bet Super 6 has awarded more than $1.4 million; mostly to winners of the weekly NFL contest.
FOX Bet CEO Announces Free Game on Fox Business
During an appearance on FOX Business Network’s “The Claman Countdown,” Levin said that FOX Bet is also offering a new free-to-play game to further expand its reach. Participants in the free game compete by predicting which way the U.S. stock market will go that day.
“We’ve come out of a very successful NFL season and Fox Bet now has more than four million customers signed up and playing on a weekly basis,” Levin told Liz Claman. “We have this coming week, the Super Bowl. Anybody can play the new game, it’s free to enter and we’re giving away $250,000 in prizes weekly. So far, we awarded more than a couple million dollars throughout the NFL season.”
Levin added, “Of interest to your audience, we’re taking advantage of their interest in the stock market. Fox Bet even has a free game running in which players predict what’s going to happen with the stock market this week to win $10,000.”
FoxBet is Winning
Levin heartily agreed, noting that the mobile sportsbook has just launched in Michigan, and is also available in Colorado, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
“The stock market game is built around the concept of the Super 6. It’s similar to predicting what’s going to happen in six different football games on any given Sunday,” said Levin. “We saw a lot of success with contests around politics throughout the political season. Now, we’re trying different things, turning our attention to the stock market. As you very well know, it’s been a wild week for the market.”
Claman pointed out that sports betting has been a boon for the economies of states like Nevada and New Jersey. Now, states like Tennessee are seeing increased tax revenues since legalizing sports betting.
“American sports betting is in its early days. But, if you look at how fast the market has grown, there are now more than 20 states that have some type of legal sports betting up and running,” said Levin. “There’s probably another 10 – 15 states that have active legislation to get their sports betting markets live, hopefully, this year. So, it’s moving quickly, and there are broad interest and big dollars.”
