Fanatics Sportsbook now live in Arizona

April 2024 marked a momentous month for the state of Arizona. After a tedious period of consideration and litigation, Fanatics Sportsbook launched its services in the Grand Canyon State earlier this month. They became the 16th online operator in Arizona, joining sports betting giants such as FanDuel, Hard Rock, and Caesar's.

On September 9, 2021, Arizona took its first legal sports bet, which was facilitated by FanDuel in partnership with the Phoenix Suns and the Phoenix Mercury. Between then and today, the state has proven to be an extremely profitable territory for the new market in sports betting, and more and more operators rushed to the Southwest to get in on the action. Fanatics Sportsbooks was the latest to join the foray, with Fanatics securing an important partnership in the state to help make it happen.

This new development was only made possible with the aid of the Tonto Apache Tribe, who own the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino. Part of their deal with Fanatics requires that the once-sports memorabilia giant turned multifaceted sports empire open a retail location in the Mazatzal complex. The brick-and-mortar sportsbook is planned for construction in the summer of this year.

Fanatics grows its sports empire in Arizona

Fanatics, a powerhouse in sports merchandise and fan engagement, has recently made waves by expanding into the lucrative realm of Arizona sports betting. With its well-established brand and deep connections in the sports industry, Fanatics’ entry into sports betting signals a significant shift in the landscape.

With the opening of its very own sportsbook in the state, Fanatics made its mark in Arizona. This move not only capitalizes on the growing popularity of sports betting but also enhances Fanatics’ ability to provide comprehensive sports experiences to fans.

By integrating sports betting into its ecosystem, Fanatics Arizona aims to offer fans a seamless and immersive way to engage with their favorite teams and athletes. As Fanatics continues to expand its reach in the sports betting market, its entry into Arizona signifies a new era of innovation and competition in the state’s gambling industry.

The Tonto Apache Tribe is a powerful advocate for sports betting in Arizona

The Tonto Apache Tribe has held great influence in shaping the gaming and gambling industries in Arizona, leaving a lasting impact on both local communities and the state’s economy. Since the inception of their gaming operations, the tribe has played a pivotal role in the growth and regulation of gambling in Arizona.

On September 3, 1994, the Tonto Apache Tribe opened the Mazatzal Casino, marking their entry into the gaming market. This move not only provided the tribe with a source of revenue but also contributed to job creation and economic development in the region. Over the years, the Mazatzal Casino has expanded its offerings, including a variety of slot machines, table games, and entertainment options, further solidifying the tribe’s presence in the Arizona gambling landscape.

Additionally, the Tonto Apache Tribe has been actively involved in advocating for responsible gambling practices and supporting initiatives to address problem gambling within the community.
