Everything you need to know about the handle and revenue from sports betting in Arizona

The experts at yengols.com offer a guide that explains the monthly reports from the state on “Arizona sports betting revenue” and “sportsbook handle.”

Arizona has a robust sports betting market, with a variety of online and mobile operators, along with a growing number of retail options available at physical casinos.

The handle in Arizona, which is the total amount of money bet on sports each month, is primarily driven by sports enthusiasts who wager hundreds of millions of dollars using promotions from Arizona sportsbooks. Since the legalization of sports betting in September 2021, all legal bets have been placed online. Recently, physical casinos have begun accepting in-person sports wagers, but the volume is still relatively low compared to online betting.

After paying out winning bets, the Arizona sports online gambling revenue is the remaining amount that operators have. Bookmakers are then required to pay a 10% tax on the adjusted gross revenue to the state.
