Arizona is gearing up for a sports betting launch, and the current target date is September 9. While Arizona sports betting could be ready for the majority of the 2021-22 NFL season, daily fantasy sports are anticipated a few weeks earlier, on August 28.
For players eager to get in on the Arizona sports betting action, this means a few weeks with DFS to get ready for Arizona’s full sports betting launch.
Arizona DFS Details
FanDuel and DraftKings are expected to launch Arizona DFS apps on August 28. These are the two leading platforms in the DFS world, and it’s no surprise that DraftKings and FanDuel plan to launch to get a jumpstart in the Arizona market. It’s also a safe bet that both operators will launch sports betting on or very shortly after the targeted September 9 go-live date.
Players who sign up for DraftKings or FanDuel DFS in Arizona will get a sneak peek into some of the sports betting offerings that’ll come to the Grand Canyon State. DFS apps feature daily events, season-long games, and in-game contests.
Some of the DFS formats carry over into sports betting in the form of free-to-play pools. These pools ask players to select numerous outcomes in one or more events, and selecting all the outcomes correctly can yield a massive payout. Draftings and FanDuel both offer these pools within their sportsbook apps in other US states, so Arizona players can look forward to those in due time.
