Snoqualmie Casino Launches First Sportsbook in Washington State

On Thursday, Sept. 9, Snoqualmie Casino made history with the opening of its first sports book in the state of Washington. Former Seattle SuperSonics All-Star Shawn Kemp made his first bet on hundreds of sports bettors and spectators. “This is the start of something really big around here,” said Kemp, who expressed his excitement that sports betting is now possible near his home.

The opening of the Snoqualmie Casino’s sportsbook comes strategically ahead of the NFL’s first regular-season game. “It’s only thanks to the hard work and cooperation of the Washington State Gambling Commission, the Snoqualmie Gaming Commission, and the casino team that we’ve been able to achieve this milestone in time for the start of the NFL season,” said Stanford Le, CEO and president of Snoqualmie Casino. Snoqualmie Casino received regulatory approval on Aug. 31, allowing the vendor permission, which is one of the final stages of its opening.

Currently, sports betting companies can place bets at any of the six kiosks across the sportsbook ticket window or casino floor. Within weeks of opening, mobile bets can be placed within the geofence boundaries of Snoqualmie Casino. 안전 토토사이트

“The Snoqualmie Tribe is proud that its casinos were the first to launch sports betting in Washington,” said Robert de Los Angeles, president of the Snoqualmie Tribe. “Sports in the Pacific Northwest are a source of pride for our team members and neighbors. It’s a great pleasure to celebrate the new soccer season by releasing a sportsbook that is closest to Seattle’s sports district.”
