The first steps to legalized sports betting in Washington have started, with four tribes in negotiations with the state to amend their compacts.
The Kalispel, Snoqualmie, Suquamish, and Tulalip tribes are all negotiating to work sports betting into their agreements with the state, according to the Washington State Gaming Commission.
Sports betting in Washington was legalized in March as Gov. Jay Inslee signed ESHB 2638 into law. The bill only authorizes tribal casinos to offer land-based sports betting with mobile available at the property.
The Snoqualmie and Tulalip did not respond to requests for comments. The Suquamish said they have nothing to share at this time.
