Eleven more tribes agree to Washington sports wagering compacts

| By Daniel O'Boyle
The Washington State Gambling Commission has reached a Class III sports wagering compact agreement with 11 more tribes across Washington, which will allow the tribes to offer sports betting at the Tribes’ casinos.

The agreement means that the Colville, Cowlitz, Jamestown S’Klallam, Lummi, Muckleshoot, Puyallup, Shoalwater Bay, Spokane, Squaxin Island, Stillaguamish, and Swinomish Tribes have agreed to amend their Class III gaming compacts to include sports wagering, formally agreeing to offer sports betting at their Class III facilities.

In addition to retail wagering, the tribes may also offer mobile bets, but only at their properties.

In line with state law, betting will not be allowed on any events involving a college team based in Washington, nor on Minor League events.

Similar compacts were previously agreed to by the TulalipSuquamishKalispel and Snoqualmie Tribes. This means that 15 tribes in total have agreed to the compact amendment.
