BetMGM Sportsbook Welcome Offers For Sports Betting In Arizona

Residents of the Grand Canyon State have been anticipating the launch of legal sports betting in Arizona for months. While tribal casinos and sports teams will offer retail sports betting, for most, AZ sports betting apps will offer the utmost in convenience and offers like a BetMGM Arizona sportsbook promo.

To get off to a good start in AZ, BetMGM Sportsbook is now offering an introductory promotion for new customers.

CLAIM NOW and use the promo code PLAYBONUS at sign-up to receive a risk-free bet worth up to $1,000. AZ bettors can place sports bets now, conveniently on the same day the NFL season kicks off.

When Does Sports Betting Start in Arizona?

BetMGM and its AZ partners – the Arizona Cardinals or Gila River Hotels & Casinos – have received licensure to operate an AZ sportsbook. The app will start taking bets as early as Sept. 9.

The sportsbook is still accepting pre-launch registrations in the state right now for its BetMGM Arizona sportsbook promo.

Am I eligible to take advantage of BetMGM offers in AZ?

In AZ, there are really only two requirements for registering for a legal sportsbook like BetMGM. The first is a minimum age. You must be at least 21 years of age. Secondly, if you are on the voluntary self-exclusion list, you may not sign up for a sports betting account. Otherwise, you’re good to go with registering an account.

Whether you’re eligible for all of BetMGM’s offers specifically could be a different matter, though. For example, if you’ve already wagered with BetMGM in another jurisdiction like neighboring Colorado or Nevada, you might not qualify for the sportsbook’s new customer bonuses in AZ.

It’s not yet certain whether existing customers will have to register again for an account for use in AZ. BetMGM should provide guidance on that if/when it gets approval.

All customers might be eligible to take advantage of a promo celebrating the sportsbook’s launch in AZ. That means customers new to BetMGM could “double-dip” by getting not only a launch promo but also a welcome bonus as well.

What we do know is that BetMGM is likely to be just one of several AZ sportsbooks available soon. It might be one of the most visible for Arizonians, though.

What other sportsbooks might be available in AZ?

Through its collaborations with the Cardinals and Gila River, BetMGM has locked up some of the most prime real estate in AZ. Gila River operates three of the most popular casinos in AZ and the Cardinals have a lot of marketing power as an NFL franchise.

BetMGM can still expect fraught competition, however. Most of the other big names in both the entertainment and gambling industries have applied and may have qualified for licensure as well. Those include but aren’t limited to:

It’s also generally believed that the Arizona Coyotes and Rush Street Interactive both applied for licensure. Neither has disclosed partners in the state yet.
