Bally Bet is set to launch in Arizona thanks to an agreement between Bally’s Corp. and the Phoenix Mercury of the WNBA. You can wager with Bally Bet on your smartphone, tablet or simply by using the Bally Bet website. And new customers will receive a risk-free first bet good for up to $550.
To give you an idea of what Bally Bet has to offer, we’ll review its welcome bonus and other promotions, the types of bets you can place, the sports it has for betting and what its sportsbook app has to offer, among other key aspects. We’ll also check how it matches up against the competition.
Arizona is aiming to launch online sports betting by the start of the 2021 NFL season on Thursday, Sept. 9. Whether Bally Bet will go live at the same time remains unclear. However, even if it does not debut on that date, chances are high that it will launch shortly thereafter.
The partnership with the Mercury helped Bally Bet secure a sports betting license from the Arizona Department of Gaming. Current plans are for there to be a retail sportsbook near Footprint Center, home to both the Mercury and NBA’s Phoenix Suns.
Bally Bet online offers a risk-free bet for as much as $550 when you sign up and place your first bet as a new customer.

Here are the key points to understand about Bally Bet’s welcome bonus:
While there clearly are terms and conditions associated with this offer, it still is a quality welcome bonus and fairly standard compared to other Arizona sportsbooks. It’s a little disappointing that the free bet has max allowable odds, but it’s not a dealbreaker in our estimation.
Yes, Bally Bet is a licensed sportsbook in Arizona and as such you can trust doing business with it. The Arizona Department of Gaming oversees sports betting in the state, and you can contact it by calling 602-771-4263 or emailing [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.
As for rules and regulations, there are a few things you should be aware of before signing up with Bally Bet:
Opening a new account with Bally Bet Sportsbook Arizona is easy. To begin, head to the online sportsbook and click the “Join Now” button. If you have a Bally Bet House Advantage card, you’ll continue with the card number and your PIN. Otherwise select “Join Now” once again.
You then must fill out the registration form, where you’ll need to create a username and password, select and answer two security questions and supply the following details:
And that’s all there is to it. Once you’ve created your account, you’ll be able to look around, make a deposit if you want to and start placing bets.
Bally Bet has a sports betting app available for iOS and Android devices. It’s free and makes betting on your phone or tablet a simple process.
Downloading the app is simple as well. Just head to the Bally Bet website and scroll down. There you’ll see two buttons, one labeled “Download for Android” and the other “Download on the App Store.”
Select the button appropriate for your device. If you’re using an Apple product, the App Store will launch directly to the Bally Bet Sportsbook page. For Android, the Play Store will open right to the Bally Bet page, as well. Complete the download from there, and you’re all set.
To get to the Bally Bet promotions page, you simply open the main menu (three bars in the upper left corner) and choose “Promotions.” Once you’re there, you can check each promotion. To learn more than what’s on the main promotions page, click “Terms & conditions.”
One positive about the promotions at Bally Bet is that you don’t have to opt in to any of them. Instead, you only have to do what they say to be eligible for the stated reward. This might be placing a bet on a specific game or making a certain size bet a number of times. Whatever the case, the Bally Bet promos are almost always easy to understand.
The one thing Bally Bet does not offer at this time is daily boosted bets. While this may be a problem for some people, we don’t consider it a major issue. That’s because more times than not daily odds boosts simply are not as rewarding as sportsbooks would like you to believe.
Here are some of the main strong points that came up during our review of Bally Bet:
Here are some of Bally Bet’s weaker points that came up during our review:
Bally Bet offers all the standard bets you would expect. We’ll go over them below, with the help of this example:
|Arizona Diamondbacks||-220||-1.5 (+105)||Over 9.5 (-115)|
|Colorado Rockies||+180||+1.5 (-125)||Under 9.5 (-105)|
Yes, you can place bets on the Arizona Cardinals and every other NFL team at Bally Bet and other legal Arizona sportsbooks. On top of being able to place all the bets we just talked about, you also will be able to try the following:
The banking options are a little lackluster at Bally Bet. However, as long as there is a deposit and withdrawal option that works for you, the number of selections shouldn’t be that big of a detriment.
|Deposit Method||Minimum Amount||Processing Time|
|Visa, Mastercard or Discover Credit/Debit Card||$10||Instant|
|Prepaid Play+ Card||$10||Instant|
|Instant Bank Transfer||$10||Instant|
|Withdrawal Method||Minimum Amount||Processing Time|
|Prepaid Play+ Card||No Minimum||Up to 48 Hours|
|ACH (e-check)||No Minimum||Up to 48 Hours|
The easiest way to get help at Bally Bet is by clicking the “Contact Us” button on either the app or website. From there you can start a live chat with a customer service rep. You’ll also find a phone number (844-844-3238) and an email ([email protected]) to use for assistance.
You also have the option of clicking the FAQ tab and looking through the frequently asked questions for help with whatever issue you’re experiencing.
When you click one of the “Responsible Gaming” buttons at Bally Bet, you’ll find options to help promote a safer gambling experience.
After doing so, you’ll be able to impose deposit, betting and time limits on your sportsbook account. If instead of setting limits you decide that you want to close your account, you’ll be directed to email [email protected] and put “Permanent Account Closure” into the subject line.
Currently there is not a Bally Bet retail sportsbook in Arizona. However, plans are for one to potentially open near the Footprint Center in downtown Phoenix.
To see how Bally Bet stacks up against other sportsbooks, let’s take a case-by-case look at a few of the other options:
Yes, when you sign up for an account you’ll receive a risk-free first bet for up to $550.
Because you can place bets only if you’re in Arizona. You can refuse to reveal your location, but if you do you will not be able to make any bets with Bally Bet or any other licensed AZ sportsbook.
Yes, there are no laws against betting on Arizona-based NCAA teams in the Grand Canyon State. So you can bet on the Wildcats and Arizona State Sun Devils, along with potentially the Grand Canyon Antelopes and Northern Arizona Lumberjacks.
You can sign up remotely over the internet from anywhere in the state. Click the “Join Now” link on the sportsbook site to get started.
No, Bally Bet does not charge fees for banking transactions. The financial method you use might involve a fee, however, so you may want to check on that before proceeding.
No, Bally Bet has a website that you can access on your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. However, the Bally Bet app does make betting on your phone or tablet easier, so we suggest giving it a try. It only takes a minute or so to download and won’t take up much space on your device.
