Snoqualmie Casino launches sports betting app

After becoming the first place in Washington to allow for legal sports betting last September, the Snoqualmie Casino has launched mobile sports betting at its casino.

The Snoqualmie Casino Sports mobile app, available on both iOS and Android, allows for registered sports bettors to make wagers from their mobile device while within a geofenced perimeter of Snoqualmie Casino property.

“We are excited to be the first casino to introduce the convenience of mobile sports wagering,” said Standard Le, the CEO and President of the casino. “Whether it is sitting at their favorite restaurant or slot machine, [visitors] can bet without ever standing in line.”

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 also includes betting lines for all available wagers, bet slips, promotions and account information. It also allows for in-game betting.

Last summer, the Snoqualmie Casino and eight other tribal casinos received approval to begin sports betting when the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs approved amendments to the tribes’ gambling compact with the state.

Shortly after the compact amendment, the Snoqualmie Tribe signed a deal with International Game Technology to run its casinos sports betting.

Washington’s sports wagering law, passed in 2020, allows betting on professional, collegiate, international and Olympic sports, as well as e-sports. Bets are not allowed in minor league, high school or youth sports. The law follows the ruling of a 2018 federal Supreme Court case that struck down a law banning betting only in specific locations, such as Las Vegas.
