Tohono O’odham Nation Secures Event Wagering License

Sports Betting is Coming to Arizona and the Nation’s Desert Diamond Casinos this Fall

SELLS, Ariz. (August 28, 2021) – The Tohono O’odham Nation is excited to announce that its Desert Diamond Mobile LLC enterprise has been awarded an event wagering license for statewide mobile sports betting and event wagering.  The Nation is finalizing a contractual relationship with a leading sports betting platform that will power all of its sports and event wagering offerings.

In addition to mobile sports betting statewide, the Nation’s Desert Diamond Casinos near Tucson, Sahuarita, and Glendale will be opening on-site sports books this fall.  These amenities will further enhance the diverse gaming options at the three properties, which also are adding slot machines and rolling out new table games, including craps, roulette and baccarat.

Tohono O’odham Nation Chairman Ned Norris, Jr. said “Today’s announcement is a significant step forward and we look forward to becoming a leader in offering sports and event wagering in our casinos and statewide. These new operations will generate additional funds for vital programs that serve our tribal members, offer new entertainment options for the public, and generate additional revenues that will remain here in Arizona. This shows once again what we can accomplish by working together.”

The Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise, with three Desert Diamond Casino locations in Southern Arizona (Tucson, Sahuarita, and Why) and one in Phoenix’s West Valley, and Desert Diamond Mobile LLC are enterprises of the Tohono O’odham Nation.
