Two tribes in Washington state will be permitted to offer sports betting at their casino locations under new guidelines approved by the Washington State Gambling Commission, it was announced today.

Both the Kalispel and Snoqualmie tribes will be allowed to take bets on sports at retail betting locations on their tribal properties, within the parameters of an agreement made with state officials.

What The Gaming Agreement Means For Sports Bettors In Washington

This week, the Washington State Gambling Commission took steps to amend the Class III gaming compacts in relationship with both the Kalispel and Snoqualmie tribes. Under these amended rules, bettors may:

  • Bet on sports on-site in the retail locations of both tribes
  • Bet on sports at kiosks located on the property of the Kalispel and Snoqualmie tribe gaming locations
  • Perform mobile sports betting at the Kalispel location, within a Geofence area
  • No bets may be placed on events involving college teams based in the State of Washington, nor on minor league professional sports
  • Wagering is limited to those 18 years or older

Previously, the state reached similar arrangements with the Suquamish and Tulalip tribes.
