Arizona sports betting goes live just in time for the NFL’s regular season on September 9 announced by the Arizona Department of Gaming. A full slate of college football action and the MLB pennant races are also available to bet on. Here are some of the best prelaunch and deposit bonuses to consider and how to sign up at sportsbooks to place your bets.

Prelaunch Bonuses

Some of the top sports betting apps to go live in Arizona on September 9 currently feature prelaunch bonuses. Anybody that registers for an account at these sportsbooks can receive $100 to $200 in free bets. Bettors do not need to place deposits until launch day when additional bonuses will be available.

BetMGM Arizona features the highest and most user-friendly prelaunch bonus. Signing up now gives new users $200 in free bets, which are divided into four $50 bets. This gives more flexibility in betting with multiple wagering opportunities.

The largest singular free bet is offered through DraftKings Sportsbook with a $150 wager after signing up. Caesars Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook both offer $100 in free bets after signing up. FanDuel divides their credit up with $75 toward the sportsbook and $25 for daily fantasy contests.

There’s a chance that Caesars could offer the most credit compared to other prelaunch bonuses. Not only do they provide a $100 free bet, but an additional wager is based on the score of four different Arizona-based teams. This value will add the number of points the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, and the Arizona Cardinals score in their football contests this weekend. It also includes the cumulative runs the Arizona Diamondbacks score in their three-game series against Seattle this weekend.

WynnBET has a prelaunch offer that requires new users to make a first deposit of $20 or more prior to September 9th to receive a $200 free bet. The first wager issued by the user is risk-free up to $1,000 if it is made between launch time and through September 13 at 5:15 PM Pacific time. Once this first bet settles, users receive the $200 free bet.

What To Expect On Launch Day

As soon as the calendar hits September 9, sportsbooks have the ability to go live across the state of Arizona. Registration can be completed easily online at various sportsbooks now. Free bets offered during the prelaunch promotional period will be active within the user’s account.

Deposit bonuses and risk-free bet specials also go live for many of these sportsbooks. This is in addition to any prelaunch bonuses that new users receive. For example, FanDuel Sportsbook offers a $1,000 risk-free bet. If the wager doesn’t win, the user receives the value of that bet back in site credit.

It should be noted that many prelaunch and risk-free bet bonuses are given to users with a limited time to use them. There is generally a seven-day window before the bonus expires. Some limitations may also exist for the market and certain odds that a risk-free bet is eligible towards. Always look at the terms and conditions set by the sportsbook before depositing and wagering.


How To Sign Up For Popular Sportsbooks


A number of top Arizona sportsbooks offer sign-up capabilities through their desktop website or standalone app on iOS and Android mobile devices. These apps can be found on their device’s official marketplaces (App Store for iOS or Google Play for Android). Users can simply sign up online and get access to the sportsbook.

In order to successfully sign up, users will need to enter their personal information. This may include their full name, email address, home address, phone number, and last four digits of their Social Security number. Any form of signing up is encrypted and secured through these regulated services.

Arizona will provide a wide variety of deposit methods for sportsbooks that accept them. Deposit options include an online banking account, debit or credit card, Play+ prepaid cards, ACH or echeck, PayPal, and gift cards.

Withdrawal methods are often more limited, but can be the reverse method of the deposit option selected when available. For example, a person using their online banking account can choose to receive their money in the same manner. Other options, such as sending the money through PayPal or mailing a check are often available, but require additional time to process and deliver.
