The Washington Senate Committee on Ways and Means has voted through a bill that would legalise in-person and online sports wagering activities in the state.

House Bill 2638, along with its companion Senate Bill 6394, would permit land-based sports betting at tribal casinos and cardrooms, in addition to mobile on-premises betting.
