Reading time 1:25 min

Spokane Tribe Casino announced Tuesday an exclusive agreement with Caesars Entertainment to bring Caesars Sportsbook to the Washington property, in line with the first phase of its expansion plan.

This partnership will bring retail sports betting to the casino "with a seamless experience that makes it easy and quick to make a sports wager", the tribal property explained in a press release.

Once opened, Caesars Sportsbook at Spokane Tribe Casino will feature a brand-new dining option as part of its dedicated space in the casino. Players will be able to place their bets soon, as the current expansion phase is expected to be complete before Super Bowl LVI. 

Carol Evans, Chairwoman of the Spokane Tribe of Indians, spoke in an official press release and said: “As we look toward the completion of our first phase of expansion, this partnership is an important component for us as a growing casino.

Javier De La Rosa, General Manager of the Spokane Tribe Casino, also commented on the partnership and said: “We’re excited to partner with Caesars Sportsbook to offer in-person sports betting in our new state-of-the-art sportsbook utilizing Caesars’ betting platforms that offer hundreds of ways to wager on sports. This partnership also allows us to bring a new type of guest to the property while offering expanded gaming options for all players”.

The news comes just days after Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton opened a new sports betting lounge on February 1, in partnership with International Game Technology (IGT) and its PlaySports Technology platform.

Sports betting became legal exclusively at 16 tribes’ casinos in September 2021. However, the situation might be about to change as a new federal lawsuit seeks to open the sports wagering game to the non-tribal gaming properties. In January, Maverick Gaming filed litigation against Washington state officials, accusing them of unlawfully granting Native American casinos a "discriminatory tribal gaming monopoly" over sports betting and other types of gambling.
