Disclaimer: FanDuel online sportsbook is not currently available in Arizona. This review is speculative based on FanDuel sportsbook in other states, and will be updated when the sportsbook goes live in AZ.
Thanks to FanDuel’s partnership with the Phoenix Suns, you can place bets on the FanDuel app and in person at Phoenix Suns Arena. Though the in-person option might not be available until the start of the 2021-22 NBA season.
FanDuel’s app is among the best in the industry, thanks to how easy it makes betting on your favorite sports and teams. The sportsbook’s welcome bonus worth up to $1,000 is another point in its favor.
This page will go over all the information to get you started with betting at FanDuel in Arizona, from details on the welcome bonus to how you can sign up for an account, the types of bets you can place and other promotions you can expect from the sportsbook.
Right now, you cannot yet bet on sports at FanDuel in Arizona. But you should be able to by September of 2021, if all goes according to plan.
A new sports betting law made its way through the Arizona legislature and was signed by Gov. Doug Ducey. The law allows up to 10 tribes and 10 professional teams to become eligible for online sports betting licenses in Arizona.
We already know that FanDuel has gobbled up one of those sports partnerships and will be one of the legal sportsbooks in the state thanks to deal with the Phoenix Suns of the NBA for market access. That will allow FanDuel to operate both an online sportsbook app and a physical sportsbook.
Interestingly, Arizona also legalized daily fantasy sports, and we presume FanDuel will also bring its fantasy platform to Arizona.
As a new FanDuel Sportsbook user, you will get up to a $1,000 refund, in site credit, if your first bet loses. To claim the risk-free first bet, click the link on this page to the FanDuel site when you go to create an account.

FanDuel’s welcome bonus is an easy one to understand. If your first bet loses, you’ll receive a refund for the amount of your bet, up to a maximum of $1,000. FanDuel issues the refund in site credit, which differs from many similar offers that provide a refund as a free bet.
FanDuel site credit works just like cash, except for the fact that you cannot withdraw it from your account. You’ll have 14 days to wager all your site credit before it will expire.
Receiving site credit rather than a free bet is beneficial in a couple of ways. First, with a free bet, you generally can only place the one bet. With site credit, however, you can break it up to place multiple bets if you wish. Additionally, if you place a bet with site credit and win, FanDuel will return the original bet plus your profit. With a free bet, you get only your winnings on a successful bet at most sportsbooks.
Yes, you definitely can trust FanDuel. It has legal daily fantasy sports sites in more than 40 states and legal online sportsbooks in at least 10 states. The Arizona Department of Gaming granted FanDuel a sports betting license in Arizona and allowed it to open its DFS operations, as well.
To legally bet on sports at FanDuel, you must be a minimum of 21 years old. You also have to be in Arizona when placing bets or cashing out wagers. That is why FanDuel requires you to have some form of geolocation services enabled on the device you use to bet. If the software cannot place you in Arizona, you won’t be able to bet.
Opening a FanDuel account should take just a matter of minutes, and you can do it via either computer or mobile device. You can head to the FanDuel website via one of the links on this page. After selecting Arizona from the state menu, you must supply the following info:
You also will pick a username and create a password. Signing up with FanDuel takes just a few minutes or less, and once you have a sportsbook account you can use the same login to create a FanDuel DFS account or vice versa.
FanDuel’s sports betting app is available for iOS and Android, and it takes just a couple of clicks to get it installed. To get it, head to the FanDuel website on your mobile device and click the link to get the appropriate app for your device. From there you should be able to download and install the app.
Another great thing about FanDuel is it has just one sportsbook app for all the states it is legal in. That means if you’re traveling somewhere like Colorado, New Jersey or Tennessee, you can open the app and bet just as you would in Arizona.
When you first log in, you’ll see a few of FanDuel’s promotions displayed near the top of the screen. These are not all the bonus offers, though. To see everything, you’ll click the header labeled either “Promotions” or “Promos.” Once you’ve done that, you can scroll through all available promotions. You’ll need to opt in for most of them, so make sure to do that.
Most insurance offers at FanDuel are for parlay wagers, and they all work in roughly the same way. You have to make a parlay with the required number of legs, usually no fewer than three. Then if exactly one of your legs fails, you get a refund for up to $25 in site credit.
Sometimes, though, FanDuel offers refunds no matter how many legs you miss, making for an even more attractive promo.
These promotions change the point spread on select games based on how many users bet on it. It doesn’t matter when you place your bet, you get the final point spread, which tends to be so high that you have no chance of losing.
Spread the Love contests usually have wagers capped at $50 with odds of -110. That means you’ll win $45.45, which is pretty great when betting on a sure thing.
There are a number of reasons that we recommend signing up with FanDuel in Arizona.
The Spread the Love promos are the closest thing you’ll find to sure things at any online sportsbook. Additionally, FanDuel’s welcome bonus and insurance offers refund you in site credit which is the closest thing to straight cash you’ll find.
FanDuel offers a plethora of betting markets for the Diamondbacks, Coyotes, Suns, Cardinals and Mercury, along with wagers on the state’s college teams. FanDuel also offers same-game parlays, which allow you to combine multiple bets from one game.
FanDuel’s app makes mobile betting easy, with a clean and intuitive layout. Additionally, it will work in other states where FanDuel has a legal online sportsbook. Even if you plan to place all your bets on a desktop or laptop computer, the FanDuel website also works well.
While there is not much to dislike about FanDuel, there are still a few things that it could improve upon. None of these are huge problems, but addressing them would make FanDuel even better.
With all of FanDuel’s promotions, the lack of a loyalty program isn’t the end of the world, but it still would be nice if FanDuel had one. FanDuel could give rewards or site credit based on how much you bet in a week or month.
Having to opt in to every promotion at FanDuel definitely is a pain, and one we would love to see eliminated. It also increases the potential that you miss out on promotions because you didn’t realize you needed to click the opt-in button.
The fact that FanDuel does not have an easy way to build cross-sport parlays is a little bit of a letdown. We also wish there were a better way to see various player props than having to click on individual games.
You can place just about any type of sports bet you would like on the FanDuel app. To start with, you’ll see point spreads, moneylines and totals, which are the three bets that appear on FanDuel’s main betting pages. Here is what that looks like, with the spread (or in this case run line), moneyline and total listed left to right:
When you bet against the spread, the team you wager on needs to win by more than the spread if favored and avoid losing by more than the spread if it’s the underdog. A negative number means that team is favored. So Arizona has to win by at least two runs to cover. Note that this example actually uses a run line, which is baseball’s version of a point spread.
The number next to the run line is the odds. Odds of +125 mean a $100 bet will win a profit of $125 if correct. The -150 for the Rockies means you would need to bet $150 for a chance to win $100. Odds for spread-style bets vary by sport. Basketball and football usually have odds of -110 or thereabouts, but baseball and hockey will have more variance.
Moneyline bets are wagers on who you think will win. Again, negative odds mean that’s how much you need to bet for a chance to win $100, while a positive number means a correct $100 wager would win that much. If you’re ever confused about the odds, you can add the bet to your bet slip, enter the amount you want to bet and see what you could win.
Totals or over/under betting is when you wager on the total combined score of a game. For this example, you would bet on the over if you think the game will have nine runs or more and on the under if you anticipate eight runs or fewer.
So, which wagers win if Arizona beats Colorado 5-4? Spread bets on the Rockies because they lost by just one run, moneylines on the D-backs because they won straight up and bets on the over because the game had more than 8.5 runs.
You also will find prop betting options on the FanDuel app. Props are side bets on whether certain things will happen during games. Some of the most popular have to do with how individual players will perform. Using the above example, you could see prop bets like: Zac Gallen strikeouts: over/under 6.5; Eduardo Escobar to hit a home run: +400; or most hits Arizona (-140), Colorado (+160), draw (+800).
You also can combine bets at FanDuel to get boosted odds by building parlays, teasers and round robins. For teasers and parlays, you must get all your choices correct to win, while you can miss a pick in a round robin and still win some money.
You can also create same-game parlays at FanDuel. For instance, you could bet on the Diamondbacks to win, under 8.5 total runs, Gallen to have over 6.5 strikeouts and Escobar to homer. If you ended up being right on all four bets, you’d be in for a large payout.
For live betting, you’ll have pretty much all the same betting choices as you do with pregame betting. But you also will have the chance to bet on what is going to happen during the next inning or even the next play for some sports. Live betting odds change rapidly, so stay on your toes. If you see a bet you like, be sure to place it before the odds shift.
Then there’s futures betting on season-long events. At FanDuel you can place futures on teams to win championships or conference, league and division titles. You also can bet on players to win MVP awards and lead their leagues in various statistical categories.
Yes, you can wager on the Arizona Cardinals as well as all other NFL games at FanDuel. The NFL is the most popular sport to bet on in the US, so you’ll find an abundance of wagers for all games. In addition to the bets discussed above, here are some wagers distinct to the NFL that you might find at FanDuel.
If it wasn’t clear before that you can bet on pretty much everything you want regarding the Arizona Cardinals, it should be now. The same goes for the Arizona Coyotes, Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury, which will all have a variety of odds on FanDuel.
Since Arizona does not have any laws against wagering on local college teams that means you also can bet on the Arizona State Sun Devils, Arizona Wildcats, Grand Canyon Antelopes and Northern Arizona Lumberjacks. However, college prop bets are prohibited, so those bets will not be available at any legal sportsbooks in the state.
FanDuel has a number of options for depositing funds. It has fewer choices for making withdrawals, but what’s there should be enough to satisfy most customers.

|Visa or Mastercard credit of debit card||$10||Instant|

FanDuel and the Phoenix Suns reached an agreement to have a retail sportsbook inside Phoenix Suns Arena, so it’s likely that you will be able to make deposits and withdrawals from that location starting with the 2021-22 NBA season.
FanDuel has a few options to get help if you need it from its customer service department. We’ve found that the best method is to use the chat feature, which is available in the app or on the website. Neither one is faster than the other, but having a keyboard to type your questions does make it easier.
You also can submit a ticket via the app or website, which is equivalent to sending an email. A final option is just scanning the Arizona FanDuel Sportsbook support page, where you can explore using the search bar or by clicking on various topics.
There are a number of ways that FanDuel Sportsbook helps promote responsible gambling. When you click on the responsible gambling link under your account, you’ll be able set limits on the following:
In addition, as a FanDuel user you can take a timeout, during which you will not be able to access your account. Lastly, you can choose to exclude yourself from FanDuel entirely for one, three or five years. This will ban you from FanDuel in all states, not just Arizona.
Yes, FanDuel Sportsbook and the Phoenix Suns entered into a partnership in 2021. As part of the deal, FanDuel will have a 6,300-square-foot retail casino inside Phoenix Suns Arena, which also is home to the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury.
The plan is to have a full-service ticket window as well as self-service betting kiosks. You’ll also be able to make all your bets using the FanDuel app on your phone, of course.
FanDuel compares extremely favorably when judged against other online and retail sportsbooks.
It has one of the top welcome bonuses, offers some of the best promotions and has more betting markets than just about any other book. On top of all that, FanDuel is going to have a brick-and-mortar sportsbook at Phoenix Suns Arena.
All things considered, it’s hard not to consider FanDuel one of the best sportsbooks around.
