The Arizona Department of Gaming (ADG) today released its list of licensed sportsbooks. This comes in the wake of several major sportsbooks announcing approval, including DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, and Barstool Sportsbook.

Arizona sports betting won’t officially launch until September 9, 2021, which also starts the 2021-22 NFL Season. But bettors can take advantage of pre-launch bonus offers available on Saturday, August 28 at 12:00 AM PST.

Arizona Online Sports Betting Operators

The ADG granted a sports betting license to the following operators:

The Arizona Coyotes and the Navajo Nation were granted a license, but are not associated with a sportsbook yet.

The number of available options make Arizona one of the most robust online sports betting markets in the US. Arizona bettors will have access to all apps beginning September 9, 2021. The first game of the 2021-22 NFL Season commences on the same day with a game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Arizona Cardinals play their first game on September 12 at 1:00 PM against the Tennessee Titans. Betting can begin on that game in-state on September 9.

Pre-Launch Bonuses In Arizona Begin At Midnight PST

Online sportsbooks in Arizona can begin accepting new players in the lead-up to the official launch on September 9. The major sports betting apps will offer pre-launch bonuses for those who sign up early.

Check the online sportsbook websites while located in Arizona to see the prelaunch bonus offers. Bettors can take advantage beginning August 28 at 12:01 AM PST/1:01 AM Mountain Time.

Pre-Launch bonus offers usually involve free betting credits for simply making an account, no deposit is required. However, terms and conditions apply. For example, bettors may need to make a deposit before a cashout is allowed.

Arizona bettors can expect to see prelaunch bonus offers similar to what major sportsbooks offered in other states. We expect hundreds of dollars worth of free betting credits, particularly from DraftKings, FanDuel, and BetMGM.
