Arizona Department of Gaming regulators likely will be required to pick the winners and losers among applicants for sportsbook licenses from the state.

Arizona professional sports teams and Native American tribes on Monday should be allowed to apply for sportsbook licenses from the state, and regulators are anticipating competition for some of the licenses.

State officials likely will be required to pick the winners and losers.

The Arizona Department of Gaming intends to file its final rules for sports and fantasy betting to the Secretary of State’s Office and post applications on its website on Monday, Director Ted Vogt said on Friday in a virtual meeting.

If those two things happen as planned, the anticipated timeline is Aug. 28 for fantasy sports wagering to be allowed and for sportsbooks to be allowed to begin marketing and signing up Arizona customers.

The first sportsbook bets should be allowed Sept. 9, when the National Football League season begins.
