FanDuel Opens a New Retail Sportsbook in Washington State

Washington State sports betting

As a product of a partnership formed late last summer, FanDuel has officially opened a retail sportsbook at Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort in the state of Washington.

Plans have been in the works over the past several months for this exciting addition to the state’s lineup of legal retail sports betting locations. The grand opening took place in early February to capitalize on the NFL’s annual Super Bowl.

Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort

Washington’s Suquamish Tribe owns and operates Port Madison Enterprises as the business arm of its casino gaming operations. The partnership with FanDuel was designed to add legal sports betting to the casino’s menu of gaming options.

The opening day celebration was highlighted by former NFL Seattle Seahawks’ players Steve Largent and Jim Zorn. The wide receiver-quarterback duo on the football field joined forces again for the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Largent had the honor of placing the first legal wager followed by Zorn. As two of the team’s most famous alumni, the crowd on hand was eager to follow suit.

The FanDuel Sportsbook at Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort is located off the main casino gaming floor. It is well-positioned near the Agate Pass Deli and Seafood Bar as a popular dining spot.

The retail book covers closed to 2,100 square feet of space. There are three live betting windows. Operated by IGT PlaySports, there are also 12 stand-alone kiosks to place bets. FanDuel offers a wide array of betting leagues and betting markets “across all major sporting events.”

The only betting restriction in place is placing wagers on Washington’s in-state college teams. This includes popular Pac-12 teams at Washington and Washington State. College basketball’s Gonzaga Bulldogs out of the West Coast Conference can be added to this list since the school is located in Spokane.

However, ahead of the biggest single-day sports betting event of the year, excitement among bettors was high leading into Super Bowl LVI.
