Kambi Group and ilani, a tribal operator, are partnering to provide patrons in Washington State with a new sportsbook. The on-property location was developed by Cowlitz Tribe and Salishan-Mohegan and is powered by Kambi. 

The agreement states that ilani will integrate Kambi's sportsbook platform for an on-property debut at one of Washington's largest casino properties. The property includes 100,000 total square feet of gaming space.

By adding Washington to its list, Kambi now operates in 19 states in the US. 

Kambi CEO and co-founder Kristian Nylén commented: "We're very proud to partner with ilani as this partnership further strengthens Kambi's strong relationship with tribal gaming and allows us to expand into our 19th US state.

"Through their popular ilani property and close proximity to Portland, Oregon, they have built a formidable brand and a large customer base in the Pacific Northwest."

The ilani Casino Resort is located on Cowlitz Reservation in Ridgefield, Washington, and features nearly 3,000 slots and 75 gaming tables.

ilani president and general manager Kara Fox-LaRose added: "At ilani, we are excited to offer sports wagering as a new amenity to meet the varied interests of our valued guests.

"With the level of anticipation and enthusiasm for this amenity, ilani has invested in a new addition featuring a sportsbook and a new dining experience, The Stadium Sports Bar & Grill, featuring the largest video wall in the region. We have created the ultimate sports watching experience in an environment that will truly offer memorable experiences."

The Cowlitz Tribe and Salishan-Mohegan agreement includes a partnership with Mohegan Sun, the gaming and entertainment developer and operator.

Mohegan President and CEO Ray Pineault said: "We've anticipated the arrival of sports betting in Washington for quite some time, and we're excited to be at this final stage with Kambi."

Kambi now operates in 19 states with over 40 partners and employs over 1,000 staff members.
