PointsBet secures market access to Arizona
PointsBet entered into an exclusive agreement with Cliff Castle Casino Hotel, a Subordinate Economic Organization of the federally recognized Yavapai-Apache Nation, to pursue online sports betting market access in Arizona.
Online sports betting was legalised by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey in April 2021. The Sports Wagering Act now paves the way for up to 20 sportsbooks to operate in Arizona, with both professional sports franchises and tribal casinos being eligible to apply for a licence.
“Alongside first-class partners in the Cliff Castle team, PointsBet is thrilled to begin the process toward offering the passionate, sports-loving communities of Arizona with a fast and differentiated sports betting product across every customer touchpoint,” commented Johnny Aitken, PointsBet USA CEO. “We look forward to quickly and responsibly introducing sports bettors and fans to the competitive advantages PointsBet possesses in owning our technology end-to-end, such as market-leading ease of use and the deepest slate of betting options available in the world.”
