DraftKings to open retail sportsbooks at two Tulalip properties


Washington will be the 19th state in which operator offers sports betting.

DraftKings and the Tulalip Tribes of Washington on Wednesday unveiled an exclusive market access partnership that will bring DraftKings retail sportsbooks to the Evergreen State.

The two parties said plans are underway to open DraftKings retail sportsbook locations at Tulalip Resort Casino and Quil Ceda Creek Casino, both located approximately 30-minutes north of Seattle in Tulalip, Washington.

Initial design plans for the DraftKings Sportsbook at Tulalip Resort Casino, pending licensure and regulatory approvals, will feature a 5,000-square-foot space with a 50-foot video wall, more than two dozen kiosks and eight ticket windows.

The design of the DraftKings Sportsbook at Quil Ceda Creek Casino still is early in the planning phase, but is expected to feature the technology and betting experience found across all DraftKings-branded retail sportsbooks, the company said.

Once operational, Washington will mark the 19th state in which DraftKings is live with its sportsbook product.

“As we get ready to open our sportsbooks, we are excited to announce our exclusive partnership with the best in the business, DraftKings,” Teri Gobin, Chairwoman, Tulalip Tribes, said in a statement. “We are ready to take our gaming experience to the next level.
