Arizona set a new gaming record in January when more than half a billion dollars were bet on event wagering & fantasy sports, according to a new report by the Arizona Department of Gaming.
“With over half a billion dollars wagered in January, it is clear that Arizona has become a top ten event wagering market nationally,” said Ted Vogt, Director, ADG. “A big thank you to Arizona Department of Gaming Staff and event wagering & fantasy sports stakeholders, whose work has contributed to the strong start in the state.”
Arizona operators accepted over $560 million dollars in wagers during the month of December, resulting in approximately $1.7 million dollars in privilege fees contributed to the state. You can view the full reports on the ADG website: LINK.
