Arizona’s full sports betting launch is just over a week away joining Michigan and a dozen other states accepting online wagers. Arizona Department of Gaming announced that online sportsbooks can go live on September 9, ringing in the 2021-22 NFL season with style and a plethora of betting options.
But if you’re an Arizona sports fan or bettor, you don’t need to wait to sign up. In fact, there are distinct benefits to registering early. Here’s what you need to know.
Early Sign-Up Bonus Offers at Arizona Sports Betting Sites
Most sportsbooks offer welcome bonuses in the form of a deposit match or risk-free bet, but those are only available once the sites are already live. Arizona sportsbook operators are offering added incentives for bettors who sign up early–as in right now.
Here are a few of the best pre-launch offers you can claim at Arizona sportsbooks but creating an account early. Claim them all and you can earn $750 or more in free bets.
FanDuel’s $100 Early Bird Offer
FanDuel will give you a total of $100 in free credits when you sign up early. $75 can be used for sports betting and $25 will come in the form of Daily Fantasy Sports credits.
Caesars Sportsbook: $100+ In Free Bets
Register for Caesars Sportsbook today, and you’ll get $100 in free bets–a nice boost to your account before Arizona sports betting launches in earnest. Plus, there’s a chance to get even mor free bets.
If you place a wager before September 13, you’ll earn an additional $1 free bet every time an Arizona team scores in one of the following matchups:
- Diamondbacks vs. Mariners (Sept 10-12)
- ASU vs. UNLV (Sept 11)
- Arizona vs. San Diego State (Sept 11)
- Cardinals vs. Titans (Sept 12)
$200 From BetMGM Arizona
BetMGM offers the most lucrative pre-launch bonus for Arizona sports betting hopefuls: $200. Like DraftKings’ bonus, however, the credits at BetMGM also expire after 7 days.
DraftKings Arizona: $150 In Free Bets
Sign up for DraftKings Arizona sportsbook early for $150 in free bets. Act fast, though! You need to use the free credits within seven days of receiving them, or you’ll lose them.
$200 on $20 Deposit At WynnBET
WynnBET’s prelaunch offer matches BetMGM’s, but there’s a small catch. To earn the $200 free bet credit, you must deposit $20 before launch day.
If you plan on betting with WynnBET Arizona anyway, this is a great deal.
Be Prepared Right When Sports Betting Goes Live
Pee-launch bonuses are great, of course, but the benefits of signing up early for a sports betting site aren’t strictly financial.
If you create an account before Arizona sports betting goes live, you’re ready to hit the ground running when it launches. As soon as the state can start accepting bets, you can sign on and start putting money down on your favorite teams.
By registering early, you give yourself a headstart on other bettors who will have to contend with the sign-up process before actually viewing the odds or placing a bet. Remember: odds are always in flux, so even a few minutes can make a difference if lines are constantly changing.
It’s important to gamble responsibly. If you have any questions or concerns, please call 800-270-7117. 21+.
