Sports industry giant Fanatics is preparing to enter the sports betting landscape having completed an agreement to purchase all of PointsBet’s U.S. operations. While a launch date hasn’t been announced yet, bettors in Arizona can expect Fanatics to arrive in the state sometime in the near future.
In this Fanatics Sportsbook overview, we’ll review what AZ bettors can expect when the platform launches in the state.
Is Fanatics Sportsbook legal in Arizona?
No, Fanatics Sportsbook is not legal in Arizona. Fanatics is in the process of converting PointsBet’s betting platforms throughout the U.S. to its own platform, but PointsBet was not licensed in Arizona, so it may take a bit longer for Fanatics to come to AZ. The company plans to complete the changeover in May 2024.
Fanatics will have a promo in AZ shortly before launching in the state so bettors can get rewarded the day the sportsbook goes live. Though no formal date has been set for Fanatics’ launch, it’s safe to anticipate the operator will complete its transition of PointsBet’s platform before looking to other states requiring new licenses (such as Arizona). It is unlikely Fanatics will launch in Arizona before May 2024.
When Fanatics arrives in Arizona, signing up with the sportsbook and claiming the AZ sportsbook promo will be a quick, no-frills process that won’t take more than 10 minutes for most users to complete. Here are the steps you’ll need to take:
Other bonuses that could come to Fanatics Sportsbook AZ
Beyond the welcome offer, Fanatics Sportsbook AZ will likely offer many options to encourage more signups and keep returning players excited about betting on the site. Here are some of the other bonuses Fanatics may offer.
Important terms and conditions for bonuses Fanatics could offer
Until Fanatics Sportsbook launches in Arizona, we won’t know the exact specifics of any promotions the company may offer. However, there are a few common and important terms and conditions for bonuses that you can expect regardless of the offer. These may include, but won’t necessarily be limited to:
Beyond the above, Fanatics Sportsbook will reserve the right to change or modify its terms and conditions for promotions at any time, with or without notice. BettingAZ.com will continually update the promotional listings with simplified terms and conditions to make things easier for you once Fanatics goes live in Arizona.
The Fanatics betting app in Arizona
The Fanatics betting app in Arizona will be the same app available in other states. The sportsbook made the wise decision to have one app for all players rather than make multiple sports betting apps for each state. This will help Arizonans who may be traveling out of state to place a bet, but geolocation services will need to be turned on to confirm that you are in a state where Fanatics sportsbook is legal and licensed.
Early indications show the app display will have both a light mode and dark mode display option, giving bettors some customizability on their mobile devices. The menu at the top of the screen will allow you to browse by sport, while at the bottom of the screen, there are options to quickly review your betting slip, access your account to cash out, and you can skim through a list of active sportsbook promotions.
Because the app hasn’t been fully released to the public, there are no truly accurate reviews in the app store. Even early on, you should take the reviews with a grain of salt, as extreme emotions off a big win or crushing loss can lead to biased reviews in the first few days and weeks. We will update this site after the launch for more accurate testing information.
How to download the Fanatics app on iOS
When the Fanatics app is available on iOS for Arizona bettors, here are the steps you’ll need to take to install it.
After the download is complete, you’ll be able to log into your Fanatics Sportsbook account, or create a new one if you haven’t already done so.
How to download the Fanatics app on Android
Once the Fanatics app is widely available for Arizona bettors to download on Android devices, here is how you’ll be able to install it.
Once the app is done installing, you’ll be able to create a new Fanatics Sportsbook account or log in with your existing credentials.
Fanatics AZ future payment options
Fanatics Sportsbook has not yet announced which payment methods will be available for use on the platforms. However, there are a few options that are almost universally available across sportsbooks, and a few which are becoming more popular that we can use to predict what might be viable options for sports bettors.
Customer support at Fanatics Sportsbook Arizona
Customer support at Fanatics Sportsbook Arizona will likely operate differently than through the retail merchandise store, and that should be reassuring to sports bettors. The website and app should have customer support FAQ pages readily available, as well as a 24/7 chat option.
Fanatics has already announced its email and phone number for support service, as well as a mailing address.
