Emergency Hearings are scheduled for AZ Sports Betting

Two emergency hearings scheduled for Friday could delay or halt the rollout of AZ sports betting if either leads to an injunction.

A Yavapai-Prescott Tribe and Turf Paradise race track filed requesting injunctions against Arizona’s new online bookmakers, but their anticipated deadline has been pushed back six days due in part because federal courts will be closed on Monday as well as Tuesday following Labor Day weekend this year – which is when football season starts up again after its long hiatus (and one would assume many Americans might want make some last minute bets). The Department of Gaming already handed out 18 licenses last week; operators started signing people up with accounts Saturday morning ahead of next Wednesday’s first NFL game kick off.

The Yavapai-Prescott civil lawsuit will be heard first at 1 pm local time. The suit alleges HB 2772 violates the state constitution and exclusivity of tribal partners to offer gaming, however it seems that sports betting is not specifically named in their complaint as what they really want stop isn’t just this one law but rather all laws relating gambling activities within Arizona borders – an ambitious goal considering there might already have been some legal action taken before these lawsuits were filed against certain government officials!

Turf Paradise wants a license, and it looks like they’re going to get their wish.

The appeal of the company’s denial by Arizona Department Gaming was “arbitrary and capricious,” according to Turfway’s lawsuit (posted on The Mirror). They applied for one of the professional sports franchise licenses set aside – not just any old event wagering ones but specifically those meant only toward teams in other states!

PointsBet, BlueBet acknowledge AZ denials

Australian-listed PointsBet and Bluebet each issued a market announcement concerning their application denial in Arizona. The Australian Digital Gaming Group (ADG) did not provide any additional information as to why the Yavapai Apache Nation’s bid was denied other than that it is “evaluating market access opportunities.”
