How To Bet In Arizona

There are three primary ways to get in on the sports action in Arizona, through online and mobile betting apps, in person at retail sportsbook locations, and through Daily Fantasy Sports apps.

    Arizona Online Sports Betting

    Online sportsbooks have partnerships with tribal casinos and various sports franchises in the state. For example, DraftKings has partnered with the PGA Tour at TPC Scottsdale, so we expect their mobile platform to provide plenty of golf-focused promotions and special offers (especially during the golfing season and the Waste Management Phoenix Open)

    There are plenty of other online sportsbooks to choose from in Arizona, which is perfect timing since the state is scheduled to host the 2023 Super Bowl. If sports betting pans out like we hope, new online sportsbooks will launch and Arizona will soon have a fully functional sports betting market plus a wide selection of mobile sportsbooks up and running by then, providing the state government with tons of new revenue.

    How To Register At Arizona Online Sports Betting Sites

    Arizona does not require in-person registration, so the process is pretty straightforward no matter which sportsbook you plan to use.

    • First, download the sportsbook of your choice through the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store depending on your mobile device’s operating system. Note that only some mobile sportsbooks are available through Google Play Store
    • Install the mobile app on your phone or tablet. Geolocation software will be installed as well to prevent you from placing a wager outside the state
    • Register an account by opening the app and providing some personal information, which will be verified remotely over a few minutes
    • Then you can fund your account using credit or debit card transfers or other deposit methods. The exact methods available to you will depend on the book you choose to download
    • Once you’ve funded your account, you’ll be able to navigate through your chosen sportsbook and place a wager on any betting lines you find

    Arizona Retail Sportsbook Locations

    The second option for placing a bet in Arizona is to visit one of the many retail sportsbook locations that will be dotted across the state.

    Retail sportsbooks are split between the tribal casinos (of which there are 26 in total across the state) and several other sporting venues and arenas. For example, TPC Scottsdale has partnered with DraftKings and plans to open a retail sportsbook in 2023.

    The Footprint Center, home of the Phoenix Suns, has a retail sportsbook that is now open.

    The Arizona Cardinals and the Gila River Indian Community have partnered with BetMGM and plan on opening a retail sportsbook inside State Farm Stadium by the fall of 2022. Retail sportsbooks are now open inside the following Gila Rivers Hotels and Casinos:

    • Vee Quiva in Laveen
    • Wild Horse Pass in Chandler
    • Lone Butte in Chandler

    Caesars opened a retail sportsbook next to Chase Field in June 2022, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Caesars at Chase Field sportsbook has nine betting windows and 13 betting kiosks.

    As far as the other tribal casinos, TwinSpires has a retail sportsbook inside the Tonto Apache Tribe’s Mazatzal Hotel and Casino in Payson.

    Since tribal casinos can have a retail sportsbook without a mobile app, SolSports has opened a sportsbook inside Casino Del Sol in Tucson.

    The following casinos also have retail sportsbooks open:

    • Paradise Casino in Yuma (Unibet Arizona)
    • Apache Gold Casino Resort in San Carlos (WynnBET Arizona)
    • Apache Sky Casino in Winkelman (WynnBET Arizona)
    • Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation’s We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort in Fort McDowell (Betfred Arizona)
    • Harrah’s Ak-Chin in Maricopa (Caesars Arizona)
    • Desert Diamond Casinos in Glendale, Tucson, and Sahaurita (Kambi Arizona)
    • Mazatzal Hotel and Casino in Payson (TwinSpires Arizona)
    • Casino Del Sol in Tucson (SolSports)
    • Gila River Hotel and Casinos (BetMGM Arizona)

    If you decide to visit a retail sportsbook, all you have to do is show up in person and bring some ID and cash. The ID is necessary as you’ll need to prove you’re 21 years of age or older to either step inside a casino or to step inside the physical sportsbook premises if you visit a book.

    Daily Fantasy Sports Joins Arizona Sports Betting

    A third option to get in on the fun is to participate in a daily fantasy sports contest. Although not betting in the traditional sense, DFS is a great way to have fun while watching your favorite Arizona sports team. Daily Fantasy Sports is now officially live in Arizona. DFS apps from DraftKings and FanDuel are currently available.

    Similar to Fantasy sports leagues, DFS gives bettors a chance to wager and earn money against other competitors. But with DFS, you can play daily contests, weekly contests, and even in-game contests. Season-long contests are also available.

    FanDuel Daily Fantasy Sports

    Boasts as the leader in one-day fantasy sports, FanDuel makes it easy to play DSF. Download the app, sign up, and pick the contest you want to play. Then, build your team within the designated salary cap given and sit back and watch the game.

    FanDuel offers a variety of free and paid ways to play such as beginner mode, friend mode, tournaments, head-to-head, and single games. The beauty of DSF is you can pick a new team every week, so you have new chances to win.

    DraftKings Daily Fantasy Sports

    Just like FanDuel, DraftKings offers a handful of different ways to play DSF. And to put your mind at ease, the app offers a safe platform with advanced security to play.

    DraftKings offers resources to help new players get started. The app has the option to play 1-day or 1-week contests for cash. It is also easy to invite your friends to join! DraftKings also makes it a breeze to change your lineup whenever you want.
