The release is facilitated by a partnership with the We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort and comes after an initial soft launch in January.

Betfred USA is bringing its mobile sports betting app to the Grand Canyon State. Achieved in partnership with the We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort, this deal will allow users across Arizona, on both iOS and Android products, to digitally wager on major sporting events.

Per the launch of this product, Betfred users will also gain access to college sports betting options. 

The COO of Betfred Sports, Bryan Bennett, anticipates that Arizona will be an important market for the operator. He said: “I could not be more excited to expand our Betfred Sports betting apps into the Arizona market. 

“We look forward to offering customers in the entire state unique experiences that they can’t access on any other platform. Our team has worked diligently to bring this to fruition.”

Betfred’s betting platform, which is currently available at the We-Ko-Pa Sports and Entertainment Sports Bar on Thursdays to Sundays, will soon be expanded with what Betfred calls a Las Vegas quality retail sportsbook. This new property will open in the summer of 2022.    

SCCG Founder Stephen A. Crystal, said of the event: “SCCG is a proud partner of Betfred Sports in securing Arizona market access for Betfred with We-Ko-Pa Resorts.”

Presently, Betfred USA is licensed to operate in Arizona, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Washington and Colorado. The operator is set to expand its offering in 2022, with licenses in Nevada and Virginia awaiting regulatory approval.
