Arizona Sports Betting Overview

Legal sports betting has officially arrived in the state of Arizona, with an expected start date just in time for the 2021 NFL season. With the passing of House Bill 2772, the matter moved to the desk of Governor Doug Ducey who signed it almost immediately.

After a similar bill failed to pass through the Arizona state senate, the house moved quickly to pass an emergency act that should allow online sports betting to begin in AZ in the next few months. The Senate Fiscal Note projects legal sports betting to drive over $34 million in annual tax revenue by 2024.

Latest Sports Betting Headlines from Arizona

The state of Arizona released its official rules for sports betting a few days ago. The Grand Canyon State’s goal is to have legal sports betting available for its citizens by September 9, 2021. That date is key for Arizona-based sports bettors since it’s the start of the NFL regular season.

TwinSpires Becomes 8th Arizona SportsBook

TwinSpires announced they were officially live in Arizona with retail sports betting at Mazatzal Hotel & Casino (Tonto Apache Tribe) and online through the TwinSpires sportsbook app.

This news brings the official operator count in AZ up to 8 sportsbooks and gives TwinSpires access to its sixth US market. Rather than offer a new promotion to AZ bettors, TwinSpires elected to extend its current featured sportsbook promotion to all new players in the Grand Canyon State. This offer includes $250 in free bets with an initial $10 wager.

Arizona Releases Sports Betting Rules

Two of Arizona’s main political figures are doing everything in their power to speed the legalization process along in their state. Governor Doug Ducey signed the new compact back on April 15. Arizona State Representative Jeff Weninger sponsored an important sports betting bill that was approved on May 24.

Arizona’s current rules allow for 20 sports gaming licenses to be issued. Obtaining a license is key for businesses since it allows them to operate both retail and online sportsbooks. The rules state that 10 of these licenses will go to the gaming tribes and various professional sports organizations within the state.

The Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Suns, and the PGA Tour have already gotten in on the action. The Diamondbacks and Caesars Entertainment have joined forces to set up a retail sportsbook next to Chase Field.

The Suns have a similar deal in place with FanDuel Sportsbook to put a sportsbook next to Phoenix Suns Arena. The PGA Tour plans to partner with DraftKings to bring a similar arrangement to TPC Scottsdale.

Arizona Sports Betting FAQs

Our inbox has been flooded with questions surrounding the anticipated arrival of legal sports betting in Arizona. Below are answers to some of the questions we have seen asked most frequently.

Is sports betting legal in Arizona?

Yes, sports betting was signed into law in April of 2021 in Arizona. The current proposed start date for legal online betting is September 9, 2021. Which also happens to be the first day of the NFL season.

Which sportsbooks will be available in Arizona?

Arizona granted licenses (or the ability to apply for a license) to the 24 tribal casinos currently operating in the state. Additionally, each professional sports location is allowed to apply for a license. Many of these have already been claimed with Caesars announcing plans for a sportsbook at Chase Field, FanDuel at the Phoenix Suns Arena, and DraftKings at TPC Scottsdale. The Cardinals (State Farm Field) have yet to strike a deal with a sportsbook.

Why isn't sports betting already live in Arizona?

Once a sports betting bill is signed into law it still takes work to get betting officially live in the state. The Arizona Department of Gaming needs to establish the rules and regulations that will apply to sportsbooks that operate in the state. These includes setting a tax rate, establishing a minimum age requirement, deciding which sports are allowed, if betting on amateur sports and elections will be allowed, etc...

What bonus offers will be available to new Arizona bettors?

Sportsbooks always offer their most aggressive new player promotions around the start of the NFL season. Combine that with a new market and it could be a bonanza for new players in the Grand Canyon State. You can always find the top offers in your state on our promotions page.

Is DFS legal in Arizona?

Yes, Arizona was one of the last states in the US to allow daily fantasy sports but this legislation legalized DFS in addition to sports betting. AZ fantasy players can now compete on the FanDuel and DraftKings fantasy apps.

How does the sportsbook know my location?

Online sportsbooks access your location in the same way as other apps do, that is, through geofencing technology. It is helpful in keeping track of the locations of bettors for legal purposes. Therefore, if you try to place a bet from a different state, you will be denied from accessing the app automatically.
