If you live in the Grand Canyon State, you’ve probably heard that legal sports betting is on the horizon. Perhaps as soon as Sept. 9, AZ sports betting sites will spring to life for residents and visitors to the state, and a BetRivers Arizona sportsbook promo could be a great way for many Arizonians to get acquainted with regulated wagering.
The legal framework in AZ allows eligible bettors to get in on the action in a convenient and easy manner. Additionally, because of the popularity of sports in the state and the size of the population, it’s an attractive market for sportsbook operators. That’s why BetRivers Sportsbook has introductory offers of this value.
BetRivers Arizona sportsbook promo details
The AZ Dept. of Gaming has not yet publicly announced whether BetRivers is approved for operation in the state. There could be more information on that front as soon as Aug. 28. Bookmark this page and check back then for the latest BetRivers new user offer information.
While BetRivers has confirmed it did apply for a license, the sportsbook has been mum on a land-based partner in AZ.
The governing statute in AZ tethers online sports betting to a retail partner. In AZ, that has to be either a tribal casino, a professional sports team, or an entity designated by one of those two. Several tribal casinos and the Arizona Coyotes have yet to announce sports betting collaborations, so there are many possibilities.
Should regulators approve BetRivers, information should be forthcoming about its land-based partner and launch promotions soon thereafter. Bookmark this page to check back soon for the new BetRivers Arizona sportsbook promo when it’s released. As of Thursday, Aug. 26, BetRivers has not yet released any information along these lines.
The rules about how to sign up for an account if/when BetRivers does take its online sportsbook live in AZ are clear, though. It’s also obvious that BetRivers will be just one of several national brands vying for your attention.
Can I get in on BetRivers offers in AZ?
Legal sportsbooks like BetRivers really only have two requirements for account creation and both are actually mandated by the state. You must be at least 21 years of age to sign up. If your name appears on Arizona’s voluntary self-exclusion list for gambling, you’re ineligible to hold an account for that duration. So, if you’re 21 or over and you haven’t excluded yourself, you’re golden as far as creating an account goes.
Creating that account could be quite easy and fast if you’ve already used BetRivers online in another jurisdiction like neighboring Colorado. You might be able to simply sign in with your existing credentials. BetRivers will provide more guidance on that issue after it learns its license status.
If that is indeed the case, there could be a bit of a bummer there. You may not be eligible for BetRivers’ new customer promos as you wouldn’t be a new customer in that scenario. However, BetRivers would still be likely to have a deal celebrating its launch in AZ that all customers will be eligible to enjoy.
If you do need to create a new account for BetRivers, you can complete the entire process in the app in a matter of minutes. To verify your eligibility, BetRivers will need your:
- Date of birth
- Email address
- Last four digits of your Social Security Number
- Legal name
- Mailing address
You don’t have to be a legal resident of AZ to register and actually, you can create an account from anywhere. If you aren’t an Arizonian, you’ll just have to be within the state’s borders when you actually make your bets. The same goes for all AZ-regulated sportsbooks, of which there should be several.
What other AZ sportsbooks might try to run through BetRivers?
Competition should be robust for bettors’ budgets in the Grand Canyon State. Among the known list of applicants and their land-based partners in the state are:
- BetMGM with the Arizona Cardinals
- Caesars with the Arizona Diamondbacks
- DraftKings with TPC Scottsdale
- FanDuel with the Phoenix Suns
- PointsBet with the Yavapai-Apache Nation
- Bally Bet with the Phoenix Mercury
That isn’t a comprehensive list but it does feature the biggest names in the gambling industry across the nation and entertainment in AZ. When BetRivers announces its in-state partner, more will become clear about how it plans to contend for market share in AZ.
