Arizona Sports Betting
WynnBET is the latest in a long line of operators looking to establish an Arizona sports betting footprint. As it stands, the state is shaping up to be a huge sports betting market, and major industry players are ready to go live.
FanDuel has a partnership with the Phoenix Suns, and DraftKings signed a deal with TPC Scottsdale to operate a retail and online sportsbook presence in Arizona. Bally’s Corporation announced a partnership with the Phoenix Mercury this week–the first major sports betting deal with a WNBA team.
In Short, WynnBET is in good company. Arizona sports betting regulations are moving along at a solid pace, with few delays thus far. The state expects to launch sports betting on September 9, just in time for the 2021/22 NFL season.
