FanDuel Arrives In Washington

FanDuel makes another big step on the road to US expansion, after a deal with Clearwater Casino to bring sports betting to the state of Washington.

As part of the ongoing expansion in the United States, for the first time ever FanDuel comes to Washington. In order to create a successful environment, FanDuel will partner with Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort. This exclusive cooperation deal will see both parties in a joint venture to finally bring sports betting to Washington.

When commenting on this promising partnership, the Chairman of Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort, Leonard Forsman, said the following:

We are so pleased with the recent addition of sports wagering to our gaming compact. Making sports betting legal in the state for the first time. Revenue from sports wagering will help support the Suquamish Tribe’s important governmental services. Offered to both tribal members and the local non-tribal community.

Consequently, Keith Wall, VP of Retail at FanDuel Group, reveals that FanDuel is extremely satisfied with this new amazing opportunity:

We are excited to partner with Port Madison Enterprises and the Suquamish Tribe to bring FanDuel to the state of Washington. The Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort will be a truly impressive location for the West Coast expansion of our FanDuel Sportsbook retail operations.

Being one of the strictest US states when it comes to gambling, Washington users can only via mobile. Even though Washington made sports betting legal in September, the law itself is rather peculiar. Moreover, it states that users can only use mobile since it falls under the category of individual property. And for that matter, they have an obligation to use a specific mobile app, in direct relation to the specific sportsbook.

In addition, the state of Washington didn’t even extend sports betting to the card rooms. This, along with the limited game offer, operating hours of the operator and the maximum bet amount, is why many consider Washington as not so betting-friendly. Hence, why many consider that FanDuel comes to the Washington scene just in time.

This new deal will see FanDuel provide the state with an entire plethora of betting services. Starting with 17 screening rooms, 12 self-service kiosks, 3 live betting counters and modern seating arrangements. Additionally, FanDuel will also open 3 additional self-service kiosks within the Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort’s Beach Rock Music and Sports Lounge.

Consequently, this is one of the best things that can happen to a state like Washington. Even more, if we take into account the strict nature of the gambling situation and the overall lacking of options in this state. That is why we can only hope that this move attracts more big names to Washington. So that someday everyone can enjoy the full potency of the US online casino gambling entertainment.
