Is Online Sports Betting Available In The State of Washington?
Mobile sports betting is technically available in the state of Washington, but it’s complicated. Currently, you can only place mobile sports bets when located on tribal land. Because sports betting apps require you to confirm your location before placing legal wagers, online sports wagering is unavailable anywhere except the land of the casino connected to the betting site.
As DraftKings Sportsbook offers a popular wagering app, bettors would love the opportunity to use the application while located at Quil Ceda Creek Casino and Tulalip Resort Casino, although no word has been given in the midst of the retail sportsbook news.

DraftKings Sportsbook Remains One Of The Top Names In Sports Betting
DraftKings Sportsbook is currently one of the top online sports betting sites in the U.S. The online sportsbook competes with some of the biggest names in wagering such as BetMGM Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, and Caesars Sportsbook for the top spot in the industry. Like FanDuel, DraftKings started out as a daily fantasy sports site with massive popularity in the 2010s.
Now, FanDuel is arguably DraftKings’ biggest rival in online sports betting. Both sports betting operators have been aggressive in expanding their brands, with DraftKings opening up the Seattle retail sportsbooks as well as opening its own sports betting lounge in Michigan, while FanDuel recently launched its FanDuel TV network.
