Another sportsbook is coming to Arizona thanks to a partnership between WynnBet and San Carlos Apache Tribe.
WynnBet & San Carlos Apache Tribe Deal
Making Arizona the 16th state offering WynnBet, the sportsbook will be offering sports betting through its app and potential retail sportsbooks at San Carlos Apache Tribe casinos. Currently, the tribe operates Apache Gold Casino Resort and Apache Sky Casino.
WynnBet hasn’t been a prominent name in the sports betting world, but due to a recent massive push, the sportsbook is popping up more and more in states offering legalized sports betting. More information regarding this partnership should be released as the launch date gets closer.
Sports Betting In Arizona
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed a bill in April allowing the operation of sports betting in the state. With 20 licenses up for grabs, we knew it was only a matter of time before sportsbooks started partnering with local sports franchises and casinos to offer sports betting through its apps and retail sportsbooks.
The Arizona Department of Gaming is currently revising the official rules and regulations draft, just releasing its second draft. Even though everything is not set in stone, Arizona is still preparing for a September 9 launch.
With Arizona sports betting launching on September 9, more sportsbooks are taking advantage of the new betting market by partnering with local casinos and sports franchises.
TPC Scottsdale will host a DraftKings sportsbook thanks to a deal with the sportsbook and the PGA. And more recently, Bally’s Corporation announced a partnership with the Phoenix Mercury to offer its sports betting app and to open a retail sportsbook near the Phoenix Suns Arena in downtown Phoenix.
