Online Sports Betting in Washington State
For a long time, it didn’t seem as though Washington State would ever legalize gambling. However, that changed after 2018 when PASPA was abolished and opened the way for states to go it alone.
Washington State now has some legal sports betting but it’s confined to retail sportsbooks at tribal casinos. A proposal to expand sports betting to online partners and mobile apps has failed. Currently, you can only place real-money bets in person within state borders.
Despite online sports betting being limited in Washington, some of the biggest US providers already power retail sportsbooks. When online sportsbooks go live in Washington State, expect some of or all these operators to be first to the starting line:
- Caesars (currently partner of Spokane Tribe Casino)
- FanDuel (currently partner of Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort)
- DraftKings (partner of Tulalip Resort Casino, Quil Ceda Creek Casino)
- BetMGM (partner of Emerald Queen Casino)

Sportsbook Regulation in Washington State
Historically, Washington State has had some of the most vehemently anti-gambling laws in the US. Once upon a time, gambling – particularly poker – was considered a Felony C misdemeanor.
That all changed in 2020 when Washington approved HB 2638, opening sports betting at tribal casinos in the state. That was followed in 2021 when compacts with 16 Washington tribes were agreed upon.
Each tribal sportsbook must adhere to certain rules:
- Must be located within a tribal casino
- Must publish an ‘Authorized Sports Wagering Menu’
- Must use geofencing for mobile betting within tribal casino borders
- A list of sports bets must be displayed
- Minor league sports betting is banned
- Over-18s only
Under the new deal, compacts with the following tribes means you can visit tribal retail sportsbooks and place bets. You must be 18 or over:
- Jamestown S’Klallam
- Shoalwater Bay
- Squaxin Island
A prospective sports betting bill – SB 5212 – aimed to push legal Washington State gambling into the area of mobile and online sites. The new bill would allow sports betting at racetracks and Washington cardrooms. However, for now you must place bets in person at a retail sportsbook.
Sports betting is regulated by the Washington State Gambling Commission. The Commission is responsible for issuing sports betting licenses and upholding due diligence and sound practice.
