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.

What SportsBooks Will Enter the Arizona Market

While we won't know for certain which books will enter the Arizona sports betting market, we do know representatives from BetMGM, FanDuel, and DraftKings were present throughout the legislative process.

With a minimum tax rate set at 8%, the current AZ sports betting laws would be amongst the most sportsbook-frieendly in the US. We have seen sportsbooks line up ti pay up to a 20% tax rate in states like Tennessee. With this in mind, it seems as though we could see a flood of action in Arizona when sports betting is officially legalized.

Arizona would represent a huge win for each of these companies as it is a major sports market with the Cardinals, Suns, Diamondbacks, Coyotes, and Mercury all located in the state. Additionally, Arizona and Arizona State are two of the top programs in the Pac 12. While we can not say for certain which sportsbooks will enter the Arizona sports betting market, it is a safe bet that the books will make an instant push.

  • FanDuel - FanDuel currently owns the largest share of the US sports betting market. They are live in ten states with retail betting available in an additional two states. FanDuel will almost certainly be one of the first sports betting apps live in Arizona.
  • DraftKings - While DraftKings dominates the DFS industry, they trail FanDuel slightly in total betting revenue. That being said, the sportsbook is also licensed to offer online betting in an industry-best 11 US states. DraftKings has already announced plans to begin operating in Arizona as soon as legislation is finalized.
  • BetMGM - BetMGM is currently licensed in 9 states. They have consistently been one of the most aggressive books in terms of state-by-state expansion. In fact, they were the first sportsbook to open in Tennessee and Washington DC.
  • William Hill - Like BetMGM, William Hill is currently offering online sports betting in 9 US states. William Hill prepares to be ready to enter the AZ betting market ASAP, and were the first site to publish a AZ sports betting landing page.
  • BetRivers - BetRivers is currently live in 8 states with sister company SugarHouse adding a ninth in New Jersey. While BetRivers owns a smaller market share, their player friendly bonus offers and industry-low juice would be a welcome addition to the Arizona sports betting market.
  • PointsBet - While PointsBet was a little slow out of the gates here in the US, they picked up steam towards the end of 2021. PointsBet closed out 2019 live in just one state, but closed head into the 2021 NFL season licensed in 6 states and counting.

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.

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.
