TULALIP, Wash. (September 20, 2022) – Today, DraftKings Inc. (Nasdaq: DKNG), Tulalip Resort Casino and Quil Ceda Creek Casino celebrate the opening of two state-of-the-art retail DraftKings Sportsbooks. Each DraftKings Sportsbook offers guests a high-energy, immersive and customer-centric sports betting experience.
The events feature Seattle Mariners great and Baseball Hall of Fame member Randy Johnson at Tulalip Resort Casino, and Seattle Seahawks legend and Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Steve Largent at Quil Ceda Creek Casino. Ceremonies with Tulalip tribal leaders and DraftKings executives are viewable in a simulcast shown at both casinos.
“Like all of us at Tulalip Resort Casino and Quil Ceda Creek Casino, the DraftKings team is committed to excellence, and we intend to give local sports fans an experience that can’t be beat,” said Brandon Jones, DraftKings Sportsbook Manager at Tulalip Resort Casino. “These new retail sportsbooks will take our existing world-class gaming experience to a new level, and we are thrilled to be able to show our guests these additions to both properties beginning today.”
Designed with sports fans in mind, the retail sportsbooks feature live in-game sports betting and other engaging wagering options, with viewing of sporting events on two of the largest LED screens in the Northwest.
“Tulalip Resort Casino and Quil Ceda Creek Casino are preeminent entertainment destinations in the Pacific Northwest,” said Michael Kibort, Sr. Director of Retail Sportsbook Operations at DraftKings. “Our brand-new DraftKings retail sportsbooks at each location will provide sports fans in the area and tourists alike with an unmatched in-person gaming experience.”
Customers at Tulalip Resort Casino’s 5,005-square-foot DraftKings Sportsbook can watch up to 10 live sporting events on an impressive LED television screen spanning more than 800-square-feet while placing bets at 20 kiosks and four over-the-counter ticket windows. Another 10 sports betting kiosks are conveniently located throughout Tulalip Resort Casino’s gaming floor so fans can stay up on the action even while not in the immediate retail sportsbook area. The retail sportsbook also offers cocktail service and menu options.
Quil Ceda Creek Casino’s new DraftKings Sportsbook features 20 sports betting kiosks and three over-the-counter ticket windows located on the gaming floor and at “The Stage,” Quil Ceda Casino’s entertainment venue and nightclub. The four video walls in The Stage span a total of 896-square-feet, comprised of 13 million pixels, which can display up to 10 different views simultaneously. The DraftKings Sportsbook also features a beer and wine bar, with food offerings available nearby for guests.
Like the casinos’ advertising tagline, “when all you want is everything,” both of the DraftKings Sportsbooks are outfitted with an array of betting resources, including odds boards, scrolling tickers with live-score updates, statistics, and player information.
“DraftKings is a household name when it comes to sports and entertainment,” said Randy Johnson, MLB Hall of Famer, ten-time All-Star and Seattle Mariners great. “It’s an honor to be celebrating this moment as sports betting expands to an area that meant so much to me during my playing career.”
Hours for the sportsbook at Tulalip Resort Casino are 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. and betting kiosks are available at both casinos 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
