  • Sports Betting Legal in Washington State

    Sports Illustrated current issue about one half of the content is about this.
    The Supreme Court decided it was up to the states a few years ago. It is legal but not active
    in Washington State. It is legal and active in Oregon, Colorado, and many other states, while some are keeping it illegal.

    This is all I know and my goal is to just find out if anyone on this board knows more about it, from the standpoint of betting on the zags.
    There are times when I would bet on the zags if the odds are way out of line with what I have seen from watching both teams play that year. Once while in Vegas the zags were playing St. Mary's and the Gaels were favored by about two points. I put my $20 in and got $38 when we beat them.
    I enjoy this kind of predicting, my instincts against the whole reality of the situation, as long as the stakes for me are small. That's why the only gambling i do when in Vegas or Atlantic city is look for the nickel or dime slot machines if I can find some. Lots of fun while losing $20 which is what i commit.

    Does anyone have an idea when or how we can legally bet on the zags in WA or legally bet out of state from our home office inside WA?

    Kallispel tribe was putting sports betting at northern quest casino. You can bet on NCAA games, but not on in state teams.

      Northern Quest sports book remodeling underway. I understand they hope to be up and running for the upcoming collegiate and professional football seasons.

          Virginia has legalized sports betting for over a year. I have done a few various bets using the Fan Duel app, betting primarily on WCC games. Same sort of thing, if I saw some game that had odds that appeared a little out of whack I would put $20 or so on it. I came out maybe $4 or $5 ahead on the $100 I had in my account over the course of a season.

            Just like Fantasy Football saving the NFL. That's where the viewership for the NFL is coming from, that and gamblers.

            I can't believe a text of mine was actually responded to on The Fan yesterday.

            Since it's Mail it In Friday, how about a segment on the post-Jerry Jones Cowboys? Stephen can't fill his Dad's boots. They're already turning into the Detroit Lions.
            They didn't appreciate the "dark" comments, considering how excited they are about the upcoming season. It's the same every year, discussing their Super Bowl prospects...lol.

            Apologies for going O/T.

              Don't think Vegas would ever consider you a whale, Kitz.

                      I expect the latter is impossible.

                        Correct… IP addresses plus home address requirements for “winnings” would preclude that from happening
