Arizona Sports Betting Sees Success In Just Two Weeks

Not even 24 hours after sports betting apps launched in Arizona, the state became the third-largest US betting market. And the success seems to continue, with more sportsbook apps launching across the state and sports bettors hitting big bets. 

More Sportsbook Apps Now Live

There are a total of eight sportsbook apps now live in Arizona including:

  • Barstool Sportsbook
  • BetMGM
  • Caesars
  • DraftKings (Check out our exclusive bonus offer: deposit just $5 and earn a free $50 bet!)
  • FanDuel
  • UniBet
  • WynnBET
  • TwinSpires

More apps will likely launch in the coming months, with all approved sportsbooks expected to be live by 2022.

With the success of Arizona sports betting also comes big wins from Arizona bettors.

Big Arizona Sports Betting Wins

I won my first 5-leg parlay this weekend off of a free $20 bet through Caesars. It wasn’t a lot of money, but this is only the second week I have ever done a parlay, so it is still exciting. Especially since it came down to the Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals game. The Arizona Cardinals won the game after the Vikings missed a 37-yard field goal with just four seconds left.

Sports betting is stressful and I have found out the hard way that it is hard to hit parlays.

I thought it would be easy since I have been picking which teams win every week for years and usually do pretty well, but when money is on the line, things are completely different.

Even though mine was just a small win, that wasn’t the case for another sports bettor in Arizona.

WynnBET announced that a player on its app turned $25 into $105,005. How? Hitting a 14-leg NFL moneyline parlay. That means the bettor got every Sunday game right, which is pretty incredible.

Another bettor shared with us that he turned a free $25 bet into a $1,375 winning after placing a bet on Max Homa to win the PGA’s 2021 Fortinet Championship over the weekend.

Always Gamble Responsibly

Since Arizona sports betting is in full force, it is a great reminder to always gamble responsibly. Sportsbooks around the nation are taking part in Responsible Gaming Education Week.

Yes, it is fun to win, but it is NOT fun to keep losing and trying to dig yourself out of a hole. 

DraftKings has some simple ways to gamble responsibly:

  • Avoid chasing losses
  • Take breaks
  • Set a budget
  • Always educate yourself strives to be your number one resource for Arizona sports betting and that means providing the resources you need to gamble responsibly.
