Arizona considers tribal sports betting bill
Arizona lawmakers will run the rule over a new sports betting bill that would legalise land-based tribal sports wagering within the state but prohibit betting on collegiate sporting events.
Put forward by Senator Sonny Borrelli and Representatives Mark Finchem and Leo Biasiucci, SB 1158 sets out that each federally recognised tribe in Arizona with headquarters in the state would be able to offer sports betting. The bill is the first of its kind to be introduced in Arizona.
This would not be limited to casinos, with tribes able to provide sports betting via kiosks or self-service terminals at one or more premises that hold a bar licence, beer and wine bar or private club licence. Facilities would not need to be located on tribal lands to offer sports betting services.
