The launch of Arizona sports betting is scheduled for September 9, just in time to place your bets on the upcoming NHL season. This means Coyotes sports betting will be able to take place across the state throughout the season and straight through to the Stanley Cup.
Arizona is home to the Arizona Coyotes and even though hockey isn’t one of the top sports to bet on, betting on hockey has increased in popularity over recent years.
Formally known as the Phoenix Coyotes until 2014, the Arizona Coyotes play at Gila River Arena in Glendale. The Coyotes won the division championship for the 2011-2012 season, but haven’t had much success since. They did return to the playoffs in the 2019-2020 season, losing in the first round. The Coyotes are currently the oldest NHL franchise to have never made a Stanley Cup appearance.
Where Can You Bet On The Arizona Coyotes?
Sports bettors may not be able to bet on the Arizona Coyotes at their own arena, but there are other options when it comes to sports betting in Arizona.
A few partnerships have already formed and more sportsbooks, such as BetRivers, are expected to join. The Arizona sports betting bill allows for ten sportsbook licenses to local sports franchises and ten sportsbook licenses to local tribal casinos.
The Arizona Coyotes may have not formed a partnership yet, but other local sports franchises have already inked deals with sportsbooks to offer sports betting through mobile apps.

Retail sportsbooks are also part of the partnership deal between sportsbooks and local casinos and sports franchises. However, it is unknown if these retail sportsbooks will be open in time for the September 9 launch.
For example, BetMGM is expected to open retail sportsbooks inside Gila River Hotels and Casinos throughout the Phoenix area. It is unknown if a partnership between the two would result in a partnership with Gila River Arena and the Arizona Coyotes.
FanDuel partnered with the Phoenix Suns and will be opening up a luxurious sportsbook lounge inside the Footprint Center. Bally’s announced a partnership with the Phoenix Mercury to open a sportsbook near the Footprint Center.
Not far from the Phoenix Suns Arena, Caesars partnered with the Arizona Diamondbacks to open a sportsbook bar right next to Chase Field. Caesars is also expected to open a retail sportsbook inside Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino.
