Players can now start placing legal wagers on their favorite football team from the comfort of their homes. Arizona sports betting went live last Thursday. Also, the enacted law allows residents to wager on all types of sports, not just NFL games.
Although many people are familiar with sports betting, there are some things that you need to learn after the launch of mobile sports wagering in the state. At present, the state allows 20 sportsbooks to operate. Also, 15 of them want to become an online bookie, including Ballys, Betfred Sports, Caesars Entertainment, Barstool Sportsbook, BetMGM, Digital Gaming, FanDuel Group, DraftKings, Fubo Gaming, Rush Street Interaction, TwinSpires, SuperBook Sports, Golden Nugget, WynnBET, and Unibet.
As of Wednesday, major operators started their registration process. However, some mobile betting apps didn’t allow Arizona residents to create accounts. In addition, the Arizona Coyotes, Tohono O’odham Nation, and Navajo Nation have not yet announced the sports betting software they will use.
Arizona sports betting law allows players to wager on all major sports and non-mainstream ones. As a result, people have many wagering options. In addition, if you are a fan of a particular sport, you are more likely to have acted on it.
The Arizona Department of Gaming approved all sports. Some people don’t want to bet on minor sports. However, mobile sportsbooks learned that minor sports could be vital. During the early moments of the pandemic, most major sports rescheduled or canceled their seasons. During that time, minor sports brought in the action for bookies.
Although major sports continued with their regular schedules this year, some sports, such as table tennis and darts, continue to be popular in some states. However, according to software sportsbook reports, bookies should start slow until they understand and find their niche, whether golf, football, table tennis, or basketball.
Arizona retail sportsbooks will open soon. Also, most operators are in the process of planning and constructing their facilities. The good news is that the Phoenix Suns are planning to open its FanDuel sportsbook on Thursday.
