HB2813 was introduced by Senator Borrelli last session. COVID-19 had other plans and sports betting legalization was stalled. I hope Borrelli brings it back to the table this session. There is no logical reason we should not have access to online and/or in-person sports betting. How much business is the ghost of John McCain sending to other states? Time to take a giant leap into the 21st century. I am linking an article about the bill and the bill itself below.

Why stop there? AZ should legalize commercial gambling state wide if not, a few select counties or towns that need revenue boosting.

Absolutely, all forms of gaming should be fully legal just like they are in Nevada ... however, don't expect it to happen here as there is still widespread opposition. We tried to legalize casinos statewide sometime in the early 2000s, but it was heavily voted down. Plus, I'm sure the mega resorts in Nevada are strongly opposed to Arizona legalizing gambling for obvious reason.

Agreed. The first draft of the bill wanted to give sports betting rights to Native gaming interests. It was revised to open the doors to other retail gaming options. Time to blow the doors open.

I've been to Las Vegas a number of times and always enjoyed sitting in those big sports betting rooms. That's what I'd like to see here and hope a few multiplex theater screens could be converted to that function, with good seating, drink service and a chance to watch races like the Kentucky Derby on a big screen. My local Harkins has 14 screens and you'd think they could spare one for this usage. Seems like fun to me.

Fingers crossed. Sports betting may be fast tracked to legalization this year including on site books at Cardinals, Coyotes, D-backs and Suns games.

Default Sports Betting in AZ

Looks like it's poised to pass, just needs the Governor's approval. I'm definitely happy about this, love sports betting especially NCAA football, NFL and March Madness and no longer do we need to use a bookie. Not sure how much revenue it is anticipated to add to the state however.

I like going to sports books in Vegas but I really hope we're able to use the apps here. I'll probably get 2-3 apps like BetMGM, Fanduel etc as they often have different odds. I'm not a "daily fantasy" player but that is extremely popular too.
