BetMGM brings sportsbook to Washington State

By Gambling Insider

BetMGM has brought its retail sports betting operation to Washington State with the Puyallup Tribe of Indians at Emerald Queen Casino (EQC).

To celebrate the launch of BetMGM’s first sportsbook in the Evergreen State, Washington sports legends Edgar Martinez, Marshawn Lynch, Lawyer Milloy and Sydney Rice attended the official opening.

The new sportsbook features a 500-square-foot video wall, more than a dozen 86-inch HD television screens, 70 leather armchairs, six ticket windows and 30 betting kiosks.

“EQC has really gone above and beyond in making BetMGM Sportsbook EQC the premier destination for sports betting in the Northwest,” said the Puyallup Tribal Council.

“We’ve got the biggest video screen in the country, great seating and an opening day that brought sports legends plus a live broadcast and a live game. We are striving to offer the best sports betting experience around at the betting capital of the Northwest!”

On 25 March 2020, Washington became the 21st state to legalise sports betting, and on 10 September 2021, the Snoqualmie Tribe became the first operator in the state to launch a sportsbook.

With this latest agreement, BetMGM follows in FanDuel’s footsteps, who partnered with the Suquamish Tribe on 29 September to bring its sportsbook to Washington.

Commenting on the launch of its Washington sportsbook, BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said: “Together with the Puyallup Tribe of Indians and our partners at Emerald Queen Casino, we’re proud to welcome guests to the state's premier sportsbook.”

This news comes not long after BetMGM launched its mobile app in Florida and Louisiana.
