BetMGM is the most recent operator in Arizona to launch a retail sportsbook.

BetMGM Latest Arizona Operator to Open Retail Sportsbook

BetMGM Arizona will be launching its inaugural retail sportsbook in the state on Friday morning, contributing to the growth of the Arizona sports betting industry.

The fourth retail sportsbook in Arizona is now open at the Gila River Hotels and Casinos’ Vee Quiva property in Laveen Village, located on the southwest side of the Valley.

The first Gila River Hotels and Casinos property to introduce a sportsbook will be at Wild Horse Pass, with the facility set to open on November 11th. Lone Butte will follow suit and open their sportsbook on November 13th.

When it opens in late 2022 or early 2023, the new Santan Mountain Casino by Gila River, situated at the southeast corner of Gilbert Road and Hunt Highway south of Chandler, will include a BetMGM Sportsbook.

Gila River is hosting a grand opening event at the Vee Quiva facility on Friday, with NASCAR drivers Austin Dillon and Tyler Reddick participating in a Q&A session. The facility will be opening in time for local sports fans to place bets on college football games and the upcoming Arizona NFL schedule for the weekend.

BetMGM Arizona has partnered with both the Gila River Community and the Arizona Cardinals, making it the sole collaboration between a professional sports team, tribe, and operator in the state.

A new BetMGM Sportsbook will open at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, the home of the Cardinals, in time for the kickoff of the 2022 NFL regular season.

Gila River Hotels and Casinos CEO Kenneth Manuel shared his enthusiasm in September for partnering with BetMGM Arizona and the Cardinals to introduce sports betting operations.

Manuel was thrilled about the partnership and the opportunity to provide a regulated version of sports betting through Go-Casino.
