The money being spent on sports betting in Arizona continues to grow
The money being spent on sports betting in Arizona continues to grow.
The Arizona Department of Gaming reports the state collected $1.6 million in fees from sports wagering, and nearly half a billion dollars was bet in the month of April alone in the state.
Though there was some expectation that betting levels would flatten out in April, a department spokesperson says Arizona had the sixth largest amount of wagers nationally.
That is without big seasons like from football and March Madness.
Arizona also saw record levels of tribal gaming contributions to the state. The state topped a record high $123 million in tribal contributions in the last fiscal year.
