Arizona legalises sports betting as Governor Ducey signs bill
| By Nosa Omoigui
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has signed legislation that will make sports betting and paid fantasy sports officially legal within the state.
House Bill 2772, first introduced in February, will allow Arizona consumers to bet on sports at tribal casinos and sites owned by major league sports teams.
DraftKings recently signed a deal to open a retail sportsbook at the TPC Scottsdale PGA Tour venue, whilst FanDuel yesterday announced signed a similar deal with the Phoenix Suns Arena.
