"Using Arizona's launch as a model, the Grand Canyon State went through the same process last summer to green light their sports betting legislature to get up and running for NFL season. Based on the 147 days between the bill being signed and the actual launch of wagering in Arizona, we would tentatively expect an October 9th, 2022 launch in Kansas. "
