Tomorrow marks one year of legal sports betting in the state of Arizona. Through July of 2022,
Arizonans have wagered over $5 billion dollars on sports, highlighting the excitement for new gaming
opportunities in the state.

“In April of 2021, Governor Doug Ducey signed legislation and the amended Tribal-State Gaming Compacts that
legalizing sports betting and a number of other casino games in the state. In just under five months from signing, ADG worked diligently with the public and stakeholders to efficiently and responsibly set up these new
industries.” said Ted Vogt, Director, ADG.

Currently, Arizona has 18 mobile sports betting operators and 25 different authorized retail sports betting
facilities. Retail sports betting facilities can be found in locations throughout the state, ranging from tribal casinos, professional sports arenas, racetracks and off-track betting locations.

new games will make on the state as we move past our first year of legal wagering,” said Ted Vogt. “Sports betting gives another opportunity for tourists to visit our state, particularly for major sporting events.
