The state of Arizona is the latest US state to legalize online gambling (sports betting) in the country. Though the state of Arizona has legalized online gambling, there isn’t any online sportsbook that’s officially opened at the present moment. This necessitated by the fact that the approved online sportsbooks all received confirmation that they have been approved just recently (July, 2021) and are thus still in the process of finalizing their sites before they can go live. One such online gambling operator that was approved to go live in the state of Arizona is the widely popular DraftKings. In this article, we are going to take a look at what players in Arizona can expect from DraftKings once it goes live.
When the Casino Launched in the State
DraftKings Arizona hasn’t gone live as yet. Though DraftKings hasn’t as yet stated when it plans to go live, there are many rumuors doing the rounds that it will be one of the very first – if not first – online sportsbook to go live in Arizona on September 9, 2021, the day the state of Arizona plans to officially launch online sports betting in the state. DraftKings is one of the beneficiaries of the HB 2772 Bill – a Bill passed in April 2021 which allows the legalization of mobile and retail sports betting in the state.
DraftKings Arizona’s Partnering Land Based Casino
The HB 2772 Bill which allows the legalization of mobile and retail sports betting in Arizona has a provision which states that all online gambling operators looking to operate in the state can have partnerships with land based casinos/sportsbooks. The provision is not mandatory but it will likely force many online operators to seek partnerships with land based entities. DraftKings at the present moment does not have a partnership with any land based casino. By the time it goes live however, it may have such a partnership if it so wishes.
Gambling Products Offered
As DraftKings has not as yet gone live in Arizona, it’s difficult to say with conviction the gambling products it will offer to its players. However, taking a cue from the states that the online sportsbook operates in already, then there is a high likelihood that sports punters in Arizona can expect to place moneyline, parlays, teasers, and prop bets on a wide variety of sports. DraftKings is renowned for its fantasy sports selections and as such, punters in Arizona can also expect some fantasy sports. See also DraftKings Same Game Parlay
