Fanatics Sportsbook goes live for bettors in Arizona through the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino.

A new collaboration between the Tonto Apache Tribe’s Mazatzal Hotel & Casino and Fanatics Betting & Gaming has produced the launch of its sportsbook in Arizona.  

The Fanatics Sportsbook is now live across 18 states. This latest partnership features additional long-term plans to open a Fanatics Sportsbook retail location in the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino over the summer – which is owned and operated by the Tonto Apache Tribe.  

Calvin Johnson, Tonto Apache Chairman spoke on the partnership – stating, “The Tribe’s partnering with Fanatics Betting & Gaming, a national leader in the sports betting space, will allow the Tribe to provide for the general welfare of our tribal members but will also benefit all Arizona citizens.”

This point was echoed by Mazatzal Hotel & Casino Manager, Hubert Nanty, who said, “We are excited to have a Fanatics Sportsbook at our facility and look forward to our patrons enjoying all sporting events throughout the year in our new sportsbook.”  

The Fanatics sportsbook itself is built for both iOS and Android and features FanCash, which allows players to claim back 5% of their wager. Additional features include a discover page for marquee games, rewards, promotions, and trending bets – as well as a search functionality.  

Chief Business Officer at Fanatics Betting & Gaming, Ari Borod, said, “We are thrilled to partner with the Tonto Apache Tribe and Mazatzal Hotel & Casino to bring the Fanatics Sportsbook to Arizona. Arizona is a state with tons of options for sports fans, from baseball, to hockey, to golf, to football, to racing, making it the ideal destination for the most rewarding online sportsbook.”

Almost a year on from its confirmation, meanwhile, Fanatics has completed its acquisition of PointsBet's US operations.
