Where Will Licences Be Awarded?
Under the rules of the law, there will be 10 licenses available to professional sports organizations which have stadiums that seat a minimum of 10,000 spectators. The would mean Gila River Arena, home to the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes, Phoenix Suns Arena, where the NBA team of the same name plays, Chase Field, which houses the Arizona Diamondbacks and State Farm Stadium, home to the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals, would all be eligible to gain a sports betting license and also house a brick and mortar retail sportsbook.
Other possibilities include Phoenix Speedway, home to a NASCAR race and TPC Scottsdale, host course for the Waste Management Phoenix Open PGA Tour stop.
These retail sportsbooks in Arizona would be permitted to be located anywhere within a five-block radius of these venues.

Will There Be Mobile Betting?
Yes, Arizona has approved mobile sports betting apps as part of its legalization of sports betting. Unlike some states, bettors won’t be required to go to an actual physical sportsbook in order to register to open a sports betting account. A remote signup process will be offered by all of the legal sportsbooks in the state.
Which Betting Sites Are Coming To Arizona?
Expect that FanDuel and DraftKings will be the first to open up operations in Arizona. The sports betting bill also includes a fantasy sports element, which plays into the hands of these two giants.
DraftKings already has announced a deal in place with the PGA Tour to operate its sportsbook in conjunction with TPC Scottsdale. FanDuel has agreed to work with the NBA Suns and operate a sportsbook out of the team’s arena.
Other betting apps that are expected to set up shop in Arizona include William Hill, FOX Bet, BetMGM, PointsBet and Penn National Gaming/Barstool Sports.

Bettors will need to be 21 or older in order to open an account with a sportsbook.

Arizona sports betting development
Arizona has traditionally been prohibitive on legal gambling in the state. But with Nevada on the border, the temptation to update current sports betting and gaming laws is hard to resist.
Many states have adjusted their position on sports betting since the 2018 ruling when the US Supreme Court overturned the PASPA (Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act).
That law from 1992 prohibited bets on single matches and games for money. And with PASPA gone, it has opened the doors for US states to introduce sports betting online for the first time.
Off-track sports betting (OTB) in Arizona at the state’s tribal casinos is still banned but it is permitted at a selection of sports bars and pubs throughout Arizona.
