Unibet And Arizona Sports Betting

After obtaining nine limited even wagering operator licenses, Unibet sportsbook will now offer event wagering not only at Turf Paradise but also at:

  • Brookside II
  • Charley’s Sports Grill
  • Gallagher’s 16th
  • Gallagher’s Baseline
  • Harold’s
  • R.T. O’Sullivan
  • Boston’s Bar
  • Midtown Tavern

“Being awarded nine of the 10 LEWO licenses is a great outcome for Kindred, Turf Paradise, and our partners in the State,” SVP of Kindred Group North Manuel Stan said. “This is a great opportunity for Kindred Group to expand the Unibet brand in Arizona and build on the early success in the State.”

What Is A Limited Event Wagering Operator License

The Arizona Department of Gaming allocated 10 limited event wagering operator licenses to racetracks and off-track betting locations in Arizona. Unibet obtained nine of these licenses after partnering with Turf Paradise.

These locations are awarded temporary licenses to conduct event wagering within the facility after going through the required licensing process and being approved by the ADG.

Unibet And Turf Paradise

Starting April 13, Unibet will open a temporary sports betting area at Turf Paradise, located at 19th Avenue and Bell Road in North Phoenix. The space will be on the first floor of the Grandstand in the Paddock Room. A permanent sportsbook is being designed on the third floor in the banquet room.

Turf Paradise already offers wagering on live and simulcast horse racing, but now with Unibet, guests will be able to bet on other sporting events.

For now, six betting kiosks and a live teller will be available among 25 large screen monitors displaying the odds of sporting events.

Hours of operation will be from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Hours will be modified before the start of the football season.

We spoke to Turf Paradise’s general manager, Vincent Francia, and he said there is lots of excitement surrounding the partnership with Unibet and that the sportsbook has been great to work with.
