Arizona Sports Betting Generates $3.8 Million in Tax Revenue for November 2022

The Arizona Department of Gaming released its event wagering revenue report for November 2022 which saw bettors place a total of $616,855,044.82 in wagers, the third-most since sports betting launched in September 2021. 

November’s numbers also marked the first time the state has seen back-to-back months of more than $600 million in total bets placed, with October coming in at more than $618 million.

Here are some additional details from the November 2022 Arizona sports betting revenue report.

DraftKings, FanDuel Lead Mobile Operators

As has been the case since sports betting launched in Arizona, DraftKings, and FanDuel dominated November mobile wagers. The two industry giants combined for nearly $394 million in wagers, good for a 64% market share. November’s numbers also put both sportsbooks over $2 billion in total wagers since legal sports betting went live.

DraftKings Sportsbook saw just over $200 million come through its app, the fourth such time it has crossed that total. No other Arizona online sportsbook has reached $200 million in mobile wagers once.

BetMGM, Caesars, and Barstool Sportsbook rounded out the five top sportsbooks.

Desert Diamond and Hard Rock continue to make huge strides in Arizona after incredibly quiet starts. Heading into November, Desert Diamond Sports had processed a total of $10.4 million in wagers. The app owned and operated by Tohono O’odham Nation more than doubled its total in November, seeing just north of $11 million in wagers. 

Hard Rock has been on a similar trajectory, starting off slow in February before taking off in the past few months. Hard Rock Sportsbook saw its handle double its total in August and hasn’t had a month below $4 million since.

Here’s a look at the online wagers from each of the Arizona sports betting mobile apps.

Footprint Center Still Arizona’s Favorite Retail Location

The FanDuel Sportsbook at Footprint Center continues to be Arizona’s favorite retail sportsbook and posted its third straight month with over $2 million in wagers.

After posting over $2.3 million in wagers in October, bets at the BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium dropped below $900,000 for November. The team played two home games each month and recorded an attendance of 63,000 or more in each of those games.

With Caesars Sportsbook at Chase Field chipping in just over $1 million in wagers, the three retail sportsbooks that report monthly handles saw nearly $4.9 million in November. This represented a 21% decrease from October’s $6.1 million.

Limited Event Wagering Operators

Turf Paradise has led the limited event wagering license holders in four of the last five months. In November, however, Harold’s Restaurant in Cave Creek saw the second most wagers, with Charley’s Sports Bar in Glendale in tow.
