DraftKings launches online sportsbook in Arizona

Arizona will become the 14th state in which DraftKings’ online sportsbook is available.

This comes as Arizona legalises sports betting in a landmark moment for gambling in the state, as well as coinciding with the start of a new NFL season.

DraftKings believes Arizona represents a great opportunity to offer year-round betting opportunities to the state’s ‘skin-in-the-game’ sports fans.

Matt Kalish, Co-founder and President of DraftKings North America, said: “With the launch of our digital sportsbook coinciding with the NFL kick off, the busiest and most exciting time of the year for our company, we could not have imagined a better time to introduce Arizona’s sports fans to the DraftKings experience.”

As a result, Arizona sports fans aged 21 and over can now place wagers on a variety of betting markets across professional, collegiate and other sports leagues with the DraftKings Sportsbook app.

The announcement follows the launch of DraftKings’ Daily Fantasy product, which experienced more than 90,000 contest entries in the first 12 days.

Norb Gambuzza, SVP of Media and Gaming at the PGA Tour, commented on the arrival of online sports betting in Arizona: “The PGA Tour is excited for the launch of mobile sports betting in Arizona as a major step forward, as we look to advance audience development and fan engagement opportunities.

“We are diligently working with DraftKings, the City of Scottsdale, The Thunderbirds and the Waste Management Phoenix Open, on plans for a world-class sportsbook experience at TPC Scottsdale.

“We look forward to being able to share plans in the near future.”

Alongside this announcement, DraftKings also reiterated its commitment to environmental initiatives.

In collaboration with the Arbor Day Foundation, DraftKings Sportsbook will host an earth-themed, $500, free-to-play pool open to all Arizona customers.

DraftKings has committed to funding the planting of one million trees by Earth Day 2022, and each entry in the pool equates to one tree planted towards this overall effort.
