The Arizona betting options are slim, and while you can play land-based casino games and the state lottery, online gambling sites in Arizona are not permitted.
Gambling is in abundance in Arizona, but if you want to do some wagering in Arizona, you’ll usually need to do it in person. In Arizona, the legal age for gambling is 21 years old, or 18 years old if you’re playing poker or bingo.
Online Casino in Arizona
You are not permitted to gamble at online casinos in Arizona. In the Copper State, all for-profit casinos are outlawed on land, with the legal presumption being that this extends to state-based online casinos. As such, you can’t find an online casino licensed for operation in the state.
While online gambling is a miss, the state boasts over 20 casinos, all of which are operated legally by Native American tribes. The casinos have everything that you would expect from a full casino offering, including slot machines, blackjack, and other table games.
Sports Betting in Arizona
You are not permitted to bet on sports in Arizona. While state officials and the tribes are said to be discussing the potential of introducing sports betting, particularly in the form of kiosks at casinos, you can’t currently place sports bets in Arizona. That said, at the tracks, Arizonans are permitted to bet on horse, harness, and dog racing.
Land-based sportsbooks and online bookmakers haven’t been permitted by Arizona gambling authorities to operate in the state. In a state loaded with sports teams, including the Coyotes, Diamondbacks, Cardinals, and Suns, the audience is there for an extensive sports betting scene.
Online Poker in Arizona
You can play live poker, but you can’t play online poker in Arizona. As is the case with many states, Arizona doesn’t have any regulated online poker sites. State law doesn’t directly make online poker illegal, but authorities have run busts for Arizona gambling activity online.
If you want to play poker in Arizona, you’ll need to do it live. Social poker is accepted by the law, as are house events, provided that there isn’t a fee, rake, or voluntary donation to participate. In the many Native American casinos, you can also find poker rooms and card competitions.
Daily Fantasy in Arizona
You cannot bet on daily fantasy sports in Arizona. Being surprisingly consistent on the sports betting front, unlike in many other states, daily fantasy sports are illegal in Arizona. Not only is the activity banned from the state, but the regulations are so strict that Arizona is one of a handful of states that DFS platforms actively block players. So, if you try to access FanDuel, DraftKings, or even Yahoo DFS from an Arizona-based IP address, you’ll be informed that you’ve been blocked.
Esports in Arizona
You are not permitted to bet on eSports in Arizona. The Grand Canyon State loves its sports, with organizations already popping up across Arizona for the newest sporting sensation, eSports. Universities are already seating teams across several leading eSports titles, including Valorant, but betting on eSports is illegal in Arizona.
Lottery in Arizona
You can play state and national lotteries in Arizona. Arizona has fully embraced lotteries, from the state-run Arizona Lottery to scratchcards and the national lotteries like Powerball and Mega Millions. In one of the few instances of Arizona online gambling, the Arizona Lottery website lets you play several lottery games.
Horse Racing Betting in Arizona
In Arizona, horse racing betting is legal. While there are no major venues for this sport in the Copper State, on-track wagers are allowed at Turf Paradise. Certain off-track betting locations (or OTBs for short) are authorized by Arizona state too. TVG is the only online operator providing horse racing betting for you here.
