While one cannot bet using the DraftKings app within Washington State, the company gained access to the retail market via a deal with the Tulalips Tribe announced January 19, 2021.  In-state operators can only offer in-person (on location) betting on sports.  Websites operating outside the state like BetUS are still accessible to Washington residents and visitors (must be 18 or older).

DraftKings is looking to open retail sportsbook locations at Tulalip Resort Casino and Quil Ceda Creek Casino, both just 30-minutes north of Seattle in Tulalip, WA.

The Tulalip Resort sportsbook is expected to feature 5,000 square-foot space, a 50-foot video wall, more than two dozen kiosks, and eight ticket windows.

Teri Gobin, Chairwoman of Tulalip Tribes, commented: “As we get ready to open our sportsbooks, we are excited to announce our exclusive partnership with the best in the business, DraftKings. We’re ready to take our gaming experience to the next level.

“Like Tulalip, DraftKings is committed to excellence and, together, we’re going to give sports fans a one-of-a-kind experience. We can’t wait for our customers to share our journey as we build the newest addition to our entertainment destinations.”

Washington sportsbooks do not prohibit wagering on in-state schools.
