Is sports betting regulated or unregulated? 

Unregulated

Arizonans are able to cross the border to neighboring Nevada to place sports bets, and the loss of tax revenues has been raised by Senator Sonny Borelli. However, considerable opposition remains and any legislation would have to appease the state’s tribal casinos, too.

Is sports betting permitted online?

No. The state permits wagering on-track on horse racing and greyhounds.

 

Is there any specific legislation for daily fantasy sports?

No. DFS is considered a form of gambling under Arizona state law and is prohibited. A bill regulating DFS failed to pass the state senate in 2016.

 

What legislation, if any, is currently pending?

None, but there are calls from some politicians that a regulated online gaming sector could plug holes in the state budget.
