PointsBet Sportsbook Introductory Offers For Arizona Sports Betting

At some point in the future, assuming regulators in Arizona cooperate, the Cliff Castle Hotel & Casino near Camp Verde should offer legal in-person sports betting. Bettors who prefer to use the PointsBet app instead, however, will probably get in on a valuable PointsBet Arizona sportsbook promo.

PointsBet has contracted with the Yavapai-Apache Nation to handle its sportsbook operation at the casino. The true beginning for that relationship could be just days away, too.

PointsBet sportsbook promos for Arizonians

The Grand Canyon State legalized sports betting within its borders months ago. So why are Arizonians still waiting on legal sportsbooks to launch for their use? Regulatory matters take time to work out.

The AZ Dept. of Gambling is actually nearing the finish line in what could be record time. It plans to announce its initial list of license allocatees as soon as Aug. 27. The license recipients may be able to start releasing details about their promos the next day and possibly take bets as soon as Sept. 9.

It’s too early to say whether PointsBet and Cliff Castle Casino will be among those recipients. The Dept. hasn’t even released which applicants qualified, yet. All that’s certain is that more information should be available soon.

If you want to be among the first to know whether PointsBet is approved and what it’s promoting for its own AZ sportsbook offers, bookmark this page to check back on the new FanDuel Arizona sportsbook promo. The moment PointsBet makes a move, all the details will be here. As of Monday, Aug. 23, PointsBet has not yet released any information along these lines.

Whether it be a free bet, deposit match, or perhaps a combination of both or something else entirely, PointsBet doesn’t shy away from offering customers its best deals. It’s also important to know whether you’re eligible to take advantage of such promos, though.

The finer points of PointsBet’s AZ promos

It’s important to get the legal stuff out of the way first. If you’re younger than 21 or on any of the gambling self-exclusion lists in AZ, you can’t legally sign up for an account with any regulated sportsbook. If neither of those things applies to you, then read on.

PointsBet has yet to share whether all AZ users will have to create accounts or whether bettors who have done business with PointsBet in other places like neighboring Colorado can use the same account credentials in AZ as well. That information should be forthcoming soon as well.

PointsBet might have multiple deals available for its first day in AZ, at least one of which could be available to new users only. So if you’ve already wagered with PointsBet elsewhere, that might not be for you.

Other deals will probably be for everyone, though. PointsBet might even let first-time depositors enjoy the perks of both new user promos and launch specials, so make sure to read all the conditions and terms on the app.

The registration process for PointsBet is quite simple. It’s also free and you can do the whole thing right in the app. Again, for legal compliance, you’ll have to provide PointsBet with the following:

  • Date of birth
  • Email address
  • Last four digits of your Social Security Number
  • Legal name
  • Mailing address

Contrary to what some people might believe, you don’t have to be in AZ to register for an account. The only time you have to be within the state’s borders is when you actually place your bets.

PointsBet hopes you do with its sportsbook, but it won’t be alone in that. As a matter of fact, PointsBet is going to have some stiff competition for market share starting as soon as next month.

PointsBet faces a familiar set of foes

If you’ve been following the growth of regulated sports betting in the United States, you’re probably familiar with the usual suspects that are expected to contend for your betting budget in AZ as well. At the very least, sports fans in AZ should recognize these new players in the market.

  • BetMGM with the Arizona Cardinals and Gila River Hotels & Casinos
  • Caesars with the Arizona Diamondbacks
  • DraftKings with TPC Scottsdale
  • FanDuel with the Phoenix Suns
  • Bally Bet with the Phoenix Mercury

BetRivers Sportsbook and the Arizona Coyotes have also thrown their hats in the ring, but we don’t know who with yet. It could be they’re in this together and just haven’t announced it yet. That’s pure speculation right now, though.
