The Washington State Gambling Commission announced a tentative agreement Friday to add sports betting to the Tulalip Tribes' gaming compact. This will be the first sports betting authorization in the state since its legalization March 25, 2020.
To complete the approval process, the agreement must be signed by the governor and approved by the U.S. Department of Interior.
Gambling Commission Chair Bud Sizemore said in a statement:
"There is still a lot of work before the first regulated sportsbook opens in our state. I'm hopeful sports wagering can launch before the NFL regular season begins."
The state legislature limited sports betting to the 25 federally-recognized tribes in Washington. All bets must be placed inside a licensed Indian gaming casino. Online and mobile bets are prohibited unless inside a licensed casino.
The Kalispel, Suquamish, Snoqualmie and Muckleshoot tribes are also negotiating with the Gaming Commission to add sports betting with a similar amendment to their compacts.

Blackfish is a restaurant located at the Tulalip Casino. It serves seafood and uses techniques of traditional tribal cooking. Using these techniques and teaching non-tribal members about the techniques is very important to the Tulalip Tribes.
The restaurant cooks with fire on an open pit. It serves seafood. One specialty is the sockeye salmon that is cooked using sticks of iron wood. The fist is placed on these skewers that are hand carved. The salmon is then roasted slowly over the fire.
The kitchen uses Tulalip traditional cooking. Only one person that works in the kitchen is Native American. Everyone makes sure to follow tradition when preparing the food.
The menu pays tribute to Tulalip tradition and uses ingredients found locally in the Northwest.
The atmosphere uses a Tulalip Longhouse design inspiration. It is meant to be both vibrant and casual.
In addition to the salmon, the restaurant also serves other fresh fish and shellfish boards. Local oysters are shucked to order. There is also chicken and grilled steaks.
Native chefs are creating New Native American Cuisine. The food is using ingredients that are local and similar to what the tribes ate. The dishes are being prepared in a new way.
An example of this is cornbread made with both white and blue corn. Also, empanaditas stuffed with bison.
The Tulalip Tribes is made up of over 4,600 members. Located north of Everett, just over half of their members live on the 22,000 acres Tulalip Reservation.
