Sports Wagering Menu and Snoqualmie Casino Ready for NFL Kickoff

Posted on:  September 08, 2021

The Snoqualmie Tribe and the Washington State Gambling Commission have agreed to the initial list of wagers the Snoqualmie Tribe will offer in its sportsbook when it opens at 11am on September 9th , 2021. The tribe and the state worked collaboratively to develop the list of wagers that falls within the guidelines provided by the legislation and the Sports Wagering amendment. Sports Wagering Menu

On March 25, 2020, Governor Jay Inslee signed House Bill 2638 that authorizes sports wagering for Class III tribal facilities under terms negotiated in tribal-state compacts.

“The kickoff of Sports Wagering is the result of hard work by the Washington State Gambling Commission and the Tribes that began more than a year ago. Working with our Tribal partners and Tribal Gaming Agencies we negotiated compact amendments, developed new rules and learned the intricacies of operating professional sports books. Together we built a Sports Wagering Menu that will offer casino customers a wide array of gaming opportunities on sporting events from around the world. Commission staff along with our Tribal partners were able to get all this done in time to meet the goal of being ready for the beginning of the 2021 NFL regular season. The work reflects our commitment to protect the public by ensuring that gambling is legal and honest, said Commission Chair Bud Sizemore.”
