Snoqualmie Casino has become the first casino venue in Washington to launch a sports betting app.
The Snoqualmie Casino Sports mobile app, available on both iOS and Android, allows registered sports bettors to make wagers from their mobile device within a geofenced perimeter of the Snoqualmie Casino property. Once the app is downloaded, bettors must activate and fund their sports betting account at the casino prior to placing their first bet. The app includes betting lines for all available wagers, bet slips, promotions and account information. The app also allows for in-game betting.
The launch follows the passing of Washington’s sports wagering law in 2020. In Summer 2021, the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) approved amendments to the tribes’ gaming compact with the state. Snoqualmie Casino and eight other tribal casinos received authorisation from the BIA, and Snoqualmie Casino signed a deal with International Game Technology to run its casino’s sports betting.
Stanford Le, CEO and president of Snoqualmie Casino, said: “We are excited to be the first casino to introduce the convenience of mobile sports wagering,”
“Whether it is sitting at their favourite restaurant or slot machine, [visitors] can bet without ever standing in line.”
