The Stillaguamish and Kalispel Tribes have launched sports betting at their respective casinos, following the September launch of sports betting at the Snoqualmie Tribe’s casino.
Sports betting launched at Angel of the Winds Casino in Arlington last Wednesday. Kalispel Tribe’s Northern Quest Casino in Airway Heights, outside Spokane, launched sports wagering on Saturday.
So far, 16 Washington tribes have received the necessary approvals to add sports betting and several others are expected to join them soon.
“The launch of sports betting this week at a second and third tribal casino in Washington State is an important development for Washington State’s tribes,” Rebecca George, Executive Director of the Washington Indian Gaming Association, said.
“Tribal gaming revenues have a demonstrated track record of providing significant boosts to the overall economies of communities across Washington State.”
Rebecca focused on the importance of the launch of sports betting at a second and third tribal casino in Washington State, and reiterated that tribes rely on gaming revenues to fund essential services for their communities.
She concluded by assuring the public the addition of sports betting at casinos will be closely regulated and handled responsibly, as tribal gaming has a “proven three-year track record of success in Washington State”.
