The kicker is that one of them, BetMGM, is the first casino to start in an NFL venueâ the location of the future Super Bowl.

Michael Bidwill, the owner of the Cardinals, told KTAR News 92. 3 Radio that they already have a large number of events scheduled and that the stadium will be open 365 days per year.
Ironically, Bidwill praised Arizona & rsquo’s sports betting law, saying the state & ldquo crafted the best piece of legislation in the United States, despite the NFL historically opposing the expansion of legalization of sporting wagering. & rdquo,
One of the most innovative additions to an NFL stadium in decades and unlike anything fans have seen on game days, the facility was referred to as & ldquo in a press release on September 8 by BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt. & rdquo,

Teams from Betfred USA Sports with the We – Ko-Pa Casino Resort
The We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort in Fort McDowell celebrated the grand opening of its Betfred-powered Sportsbook on Thursday, Sept. 8. The two entities partnered up in August of 2021.
Former NFL linebacker Lance Briggs signed autographs at the WKP Sportsbook & rsquo’s grand opening, which coincided with the start of football season. Bernadine Burnett, leader of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, placed the initial wager.
On the Planar 4K direct-view LED video wall at the Sportsbook, which measures 47 & rsquo, wide by 9, and tall with three diagonal screens at 18.4 & dquo each, visitors can watch three games side by side.
And that & rsquo, that’s not all: Each screen can split, just like some crazy video amoeba. divided into four distinct 9.2 & rsquo sections, allowing viewers to watch a dozen games at once.
This may be what Kirk Kimbraugh, the director of the table games We Ko Pa & rsquo, was referring to when he said they had wanted to”& ldquo ,” or use the most recent technological advancements,” so they could take We – Ko – Pa to the next level of gaming excellence.” & rdquo,
The casino even provides:
- Cashiers with betting odds and lines are positioned below three Planar 98 & rdquo, 4K displays.
- There are four betting stations.
- Eight strategically placed, dispersed self-service gambling restaurants that are open around-the-clock

Sports enthusiasts are enthusiastic about the brand-new Arizona casinos.
Some ecstatic starting day participants who spoke with ABC 15 hours before the afternoon game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Kansas City Chiefs remarked on how convenient it was to no longer have to travel to Las Vegas to place bets on sports.
One man remarked,” Andldquo, We & rsquo ,”” We’ve got it right here in Arizona.” Even a Californian who frequently travels to Vegas to place bets expressed his enthusiasm by saying,” Andldquo, Now that Arizona offers it, that & rsquo is awesome.” & rdquo,
Another guest added that he and his partner had bet in an effort to get their opening-day cards again. However, he didn’t seem overly concerned about losing. Worst case scenario, I suppose it will be a entertaining tale. & rdquo,
