Caesars and RSI among 18 operators in final Arizona licensee list
Licenses were issues to tribal operators and sports venues, both of which may partner with commercial operators under Arizona’s sports betting laws.
In total, 10 tribal gaming licences were handed out to operators including the Hualapai Tribe powered by Golden Nugget, the Tonto Apache Tribe in association with Churchill Downs Incorporated, and the San Carlos Apache Tribe in tandem with WynnBet.
Eight sports teams or venues were also allocated licences. Among those were MLB side the Arizona Diamondbacks, which partnered with Caesars/William Hill, and the Arena Football League’s Arizona Rattlers in tandem with Rush Street Interactive (RSI). The WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury are working with Bally’s Corporation, and Phoenix Speedway has partnered with Penn National Gaming.
They join BetMGM, DraftKings and FanDuel which all announced their entrance into the Arizona Market last week.
Fantasy sports betting is already live in Arizona, and licenced operators include DraftKings, FanDuel, FFPC, Yahoo, Fantasy Sports Shark and Underdog Sports.
