Barstool Sportsbook Arizona Just Got A Massive Upgrade

Written By Cole Rush on July 14, 2023
Barstool has upgraded its online product.

PENN Entertainment recently announced the release of its upgraded Barstool Sportsbook platform.

For Arizona bettors, this means a significantly amplified experience with the Barstool mobile app, plus a plethora of new features.

The revitalized Barstool Sportsbook app brings numerous changes aimed at improving the experience for Arizona bettors, and players in the other 15 jurisdictions where Barstool is available.

Barstool upgrades all components of app

Barstool has made many moves in the Arizona sports betting market, including a partnership with the Phoenix Raceway. However, a planned retail sportsbook at the track has been put on indefinite hold while PENN decides whether it would generate meaningful revenue.

Ease of use

Call them “quality of life” improvements, “streamlined navigation” or whatever other jargon may fit the bill. Simply put, getting around the Barstool Sportsbook app is easier now than it’s ever been. The menus are intuitive, with popular games, leagues and betting categories prominently displayed. Selecting one swiftly loads the corresponding page, which in turn has its own excellent menus. The improvements in this regard are too many to name, but it feels like Barstool came to play and compete with the biggest names in sports betting.

More, more, more

Did I mention there’s more? Wagering markets at Barstool Sportsbook AZ have been significantly expanded. Now, there are long lists of extra betting options, including new in-game bets and player props.

Make it your own

The redesign promises added personalization capabilities. This includes options you can explore on your own plus more custom offers and promotions from Barstool itself.

Additionally, the sportsbook is expanding its Barstool Exclusives section to include more promos and boosted bets.

The need for speed

Pretty much everything is faster now at Barstool Sportsbook. Load times have been slashed. During my time with the new app, every page I tried to visit popped up within the space of a second or less. Deposits and withdrawals have been streamlined, too. I made a deposit with the app via PayPal and it was incredibly fast. I didn’t need to jump through any extra hoops, either. One simply has to click “deposit,” connect to PayPal, and betting is available in seconds.

Crossing over

Barstool Sportsbook now has stronger crossover with theScore media app, which is also owned by parent company PENN Entertainment. You can use theScore with your Barstool Sportsbook login. Plus, the real kicker: You can build bet slips and track your existing wagers within theScore app. No need to switch between the two.

Behind the scenes

Jay Snowden, CEO and president of PENN Entertainment, applauded the efforts of his team.

“Migrating onto our proprietary technology platform and introducing a fully upgraded Barstool Sportsbook is a milestone achievement. Having full control of our product and roadmap will lead to improved operational efficiency and the ability to quickly introduce new features, bespoke promotions and wagering markets. I want to congratulate our Interactive team members who worked tirelessly to ensure a successful on-schedule migration, which better positions us to compete in the online gaming space.”

Barstool’s upgrade comes on the heels of a massive tech project that’s been in progress for months if not years. The sportsbook is now on PENN’s proprietary tech platform. It brings all of Barstool Spotsbook’s operations in-house and grants increased flexibility to PENN and theScore to continuously improve the experience for users.
