The Arizona Department of Gaming (ADOG) granted 10 licenses for businesses that don’t qualify for full sports wagering to run brick-and-mortar sportsbooks.
- They were awarded to horse racing tracks Turf Paradise in north Phoenix and Arizona Downs in Prescott Valley, seven bars in metro Phoenix and one in Tucson.
Details: Under the 2021 law that legalized sports betting in Arizona, only professional sports teams and franchises and Native American tribes qualify for licenses that allow both in-person and mobile betting.
- However, the law included 10 limited-event wagering operator (LEWO) licenses for racetracks and other businesses that offer off-track betting.
