One of the newest Arizona betting apps is offering new customers a big deal to start the new year.
Fubo Sportsbook, which is partnered with the Ak-Chin Indian Community, is offering a $1,000 risk-free bet and one month of FuboTV for free as part of the operator’s first acquisition offer in the Arizona sports betting marketplace.
The New York-based company is among the 14 of 18 licensed operators to launch in Arizona, doing so on Dec. 20, one day ahead of SuperBook Sports.
How to Take Advantage of Fubo Sportsbook’s Deal
Fubo Sportsbook’s risk-free bet deal is open to anyone making their first deposit who has not completed a first wager promotion in any of the operator’s other states.
Customers can earn the acquisition offer so long as they deposit at least one dollar into their account and wager that money.
Qualifying contests for the offer must have odds of -200 or greater, with a credit of restricted funds equal to the amount wagered if that contest is settled as a loss.
The promotional credit new Fubo Sportsbook customers in Arizona receive does not have any cash value and cannot be transferred or withdrawn. It expires after 30 days if not used.
What to Know About Fubo Sportsbook in Arizona
Fubo Sportsbook Arizona is set to become the operator’s central market in the year ahead, with a larger population base and more established clientele than the operator’s other markets in Iowa and Indiana.
“Being in Arizona, having a great partner, and being able to find a home that really allows us to accentuate our truly unique feature of this whole watching wagering experience was important to us,” Butera said.
Butera added Fubo Sportsbook’s mobile application pairs perfectly with the company’s streaming service (FuboTV), giving customers an interactive betting platform that features an all-in-one betting interface.
“If one of our customers watches over 130 hours of TV a month, then we get to really learn what that customer likes,” Butera said. “And with somebody that likes sports, we're able to create unique offerings — whether they be promotions, or things that we're doing for that customer that we believe that customer is truly going to enjoy — because we know so much about them.
“So, there's a lot that goes into this synchronization and integration and hopefully we can acquire and convert to sports betting much more efficiently and at much less cost than with a traditional operator with marketing retail.”
Butera told BetArizona.com he sees Arizona being Fubo Sportsbook’s anchor market on the West Coast for the foreseeable future. He hopes Fubo Sportsbook can carve out a dedicated following in the 48th State.
“[Arizona’s] super important for us, and I think if you look at where we're going to be in the West Coast, (Arizona’s) probably going to be our primary state for the foreseeable future,” Butera said. “So, we hope to be able to market from neighboring states, as well as Arizona, as well as people from (Mexico) that travel to Arizona.
“It’s a year-round community. So, for all those reasons — for our viewership, for the nature of our product, for giving us a real strong presence on the West Coast, in a competitive environment. And just from the performance of the states. So, it’s super, super important for us.”
