All About Arizona Sports Betting Handle And Revenue

The experts at have assembled this guide to explain what we mean when we talk about Arizona sports betting revenue and sportsbook handle that the state reports each month.

There is an active market with many online or mobile operators as well as a growing number of retail sports wagering options at brick-and-mortar casinos in the Grand Canyon State.

The handle is the total amount of money bet on sports in the state each month. Sports bettors wager hundreds of millions of dollars monthly often through the use of Arizona sportsbook promos. From the time legal sports betting launched in September 2021 to early 2023, legal, regulated sports bets were placed exclusively with online sportsbooks. Since then, physical casinos have begun taking retail wagers on sports, albeit in much smaller numbers.

The Arizona online gambling revenue on sports refers to the amount that operators have left after they pay out winning bets. From there, bookmakers pay 10% tax to the state on the adjusted gross revenue.
