Online sports betting in Arizona has a new provider. Desert Diamond Casinos introduced its first sports betting app for state residents only.
The announcement rides on the coattails of record betting figures for the state. Arizona sportsbooks took in $291.2 million in its first month of legal gambling.
There are some critical differences from the new app from Desert Diamond Casinos. Here’s a guide for a closer look at the latest mobile AZ sportsbook.
Sports betting app features
The market in Arizona is already a crowded field. Most of the prominent betting apps are already available.
Desert Diamond Casinos entered the fray as the only local AZ sportsbook. All the major sports are available, and so are some less traditional sports. You can bet on e-sports, table tennis, and more with the app.
Match tracking visualization allows members to follow games when they can’t watch. If you can’t get to a television, the app will update the action in real-time.
Like other apps, the sports gambling app has pre-game betting and live-action sports. Guests place bets on single games and several parlays and prop options.
Membership to the Desert Diamond Casinos app
Most online Arizona sportsbook brands offer sign-up bonuses to patrons.
Desert Diamond Casinos plan to entice new players by matching the first two deposits up to $500. The offer represents a healthy amount of free sports betting in Arizona.
The app is available in Apple and Google stores, and membership is unique to residents of Arizona. Desert Diamond Casinos bills the app as the only genuinely local alternative.
Membership gives customers access to betting action online or at the kiosks in Desert Diamond Casinos.
Betting competition in Arizona
Desert Diamond Casinos operates only in Arizona right now. Can the Arizona sportsbook app compete with some of the more prominent names in the industry that already established a presence in the state?
Desert Diamond Casinos came late to the party for sports gambling in Arizona. The gambling app is fighting an uphill battle against more prominent betting apps, including:
and other major sportsbooks. It could take a significant financial commitment to catch up with those enormous sports betting apps.
The Arizona online sports betting market is somewhat saturated. How will Desert Diamond Casinos address scaling the product? Do they have the funds to stay ahead of other Arizona sports gambling establishments, and can they pull off the type of marketing blitz needed to pull in new customers?
Sports betting at Arizona casinos
Digital kiosks in three AZ casinos give patrons several unique choices for placing bets. According to Desert Diamond Casinos, its betting app has unique options.
Guests choose local events for betting or the biggest contests on the board. They can stay in the comfortable facility and watch the games or follow the action inside the app.
About Desert Diamond Casinos
Tohono O’odham Nation owns and operates four gaming locations in Arizona. Sahuarita and West Valley casinos offer slots, table games, and poker. Then, the state legalized sports gambling in Arizona in September 2021.
Tohon O’odham Nation went straight to work and opened two physical sportsbook kiosks. Tucson was the next logical step with a retail presence in Sahuarita and Glendale for sports bets.
On Super Bowl Sunday, Desert Diamond Casinos launched its third sportsbook.
There are new players on the horizon
Bally’s Arizona (with the Phoenix Mercury), Digital Gaming/Betway (with the San Juan Southern Paiute Tribe), and Hard Rock Sportsbook (with the Navajo Nation) are the only three remaining licensed operators that haven’t set a debut date in the state.
