After sports betting became legal in Arizona, the state coffers have yet to cross the $10 million mark. At the same time, the sportsbooks in the state have made $225 million.
Between September 2021 and February 2022, the state’s
general fund reached about $8.5 million from sports gambling. And during the
college football seasons or professional games, the average revenue is about
$1.4 million per month. If the averages hold, the state will earn about $17
million after the first year of legal betting.
But, there is a decrease in revenue. Arizona sportsbooks held 5.7% for $29.2 million in
April sports betting revenue. It is about a 21.5% decrease from the March
revenue, which was $37.2 million. In addition, operators deducted around $12.7
million in promotions, leading to a taxable revenue of approximate $16.5
million. With promotional deductions, just seven of the 18 sportsbooks in
Arizona turned in taxable revenue totals. As a result, the state collected around
$1.6 million in taxes.
Arizona bettors have spent roughly $2.8 billion and won
more than $2.5 billion. By learning online betting tricks, you can also make a good
profit from sports betting in the state.
