Emerald Queen Casino has two casinos and hotels: EQC Fife and the newly built EQC Tacoma. Betting kiosks and in-game wagering will be available on-premise at both EQC locations with mobile in-game wagering to activate in early 2022. EQC Fife’s kiosk betting will begin on Dec. 27. 

Sports betting on tribal land in the State of Washington became legal on March 25, 2020, when Governor Inslee signed sports betting legislation into law. Emerald Queen Casino, which is owned by the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, partnered with BetMGM to open the new EQC Sportsbook. Emerald Queen Casino is the exclusive partner for BetMGM in Washington.

As BetMGM continues to expand its sports betting platforms to new states, responsible gaming education remains a key focus. BetMGM is proud to provide resources to help customers play responsibly. For more information on BetMGM follow @BetMGM on Twitter.
