Mobile sports betting has been open to tribal casinos in Washington since 2020 – but only one has taken the plunge, and it’s difficult to say if any others will join in the fun. Fortunately, Washingtonians willing to travel to an actual casino have no shortage of sports betting options at their disposal. Here's a look at the top sports betting bonuses that could be available to Washington sports betting players down the road.

Washington sports betting bonuses

With the Snoqualmie tribe's proprietary sportsbook the only mobile option in Washington at the moment, here's a look at current bonuses for other marquee sportsbooks that could join the state sports betting landscape at some point:

Caesars Washington bonuses 🏛

If your first qualifying wager loses, Caesars will credit you a bet credit equal to the value of your first wager up to $1,000. Your bet credit is for one-time use within 14 days and cannot be divided across multiple wagers. You'll need a Caesars Sportsbook promo code to get started on this one.

BetMGM Washington bonuses 🦁

New customers to BetMGM are eligible for up to $1,500 back in bonus bets when they sign up for an account using the BetMGM bonus code 'SBRBONUS'.

If your first qualifying bet loses and it is in an amount greater than $50, you will receive five (5) bonus bets back in equal denominations of 20% of the total amount of the qualifying bet up to $1,500. If your qualifying bet loses and it is less than $50, you will receive a single bonus bet back in a single denomination equaling the total amount of the qualifying bet. For example: if you place a $1,000 qualifying bet and your bet loses, you will receive five (5) $200 bonus bets. If you place a $49 bet and lose, you will receive one $49 bonus bet.

FanDuel Washington bonuses 🔵

New users to FanDuel are eligible for a welcome bonus that offers $150 in bonus bets if you place a moneyline wager of $5 or more and win it. Register and deposit on the FanDuel mobile app and place a first bet of $5. If that bet wins, you’ll get bonus bets deposited into your account within 72 hours. No FanDuel promo code is required to activate this offer. 

DraftKings Washington bonuses 👑

New customers can deposit, place a wager of $5 or more on any sport, and receive $200 in bonus bets, win or lose. It's just that simple, and you don't need a DraftKings promo code to opt into this deal.

Your first bet can be on any sports market, with any odds. The bonus is paid out as (8) $25 bonus bets. They are not redeemable for cash, non-transferable, non-refundable, and expire after seven days. 

PointsBet Washington bonuses 🔴

PointsBet offers new players $500 in second chance bets if their first bet loses. It comes in the form of five (5) $100 bonus bet credits, given out once per day for five days after your first bet is settled. You must use your daily bet each day to continue receiving them, and they expire within seven days.

Barstool Washington bonuses 🏈

Barstool Sportsbook has an average sign-up bonus offering  $1,000 back in bonus bet credits for new users in most regions. They try and word it differently, sometimes calling it a “2 for 1 bet,” but it’s a standard bonus bet promo. You can use the bonus bets to make additional wagers, but you only get them if your first bet loses. Don't forget they match your first bet, not your deposit, up to $1,000.

Barstool will be completely rebranding and relaunching as ESPN Bet in November 2023, so stay tuned for any changes to their welcome bonus.

Bet responsibly with Washington promos

Like most U.S. states, Washington has put safeguards in place to ensure that bettors have a way out of any potential trouble spots. 

The Washington State Gambling Commission is the state’s main resource for players who seek help. It provides access to treatment programs, a self-exclusion form and a host of self-help resources.

Sports to bet on with Washington bonuses

It will come as no surprise to see a rather extensive list of major professional and amateur sports available to Washington bettors; here are the marquee sports on which WA residents can wager:

NFL

Lumen Field will see plenty of attention from sports betting operators if Washington ever opens up to multiple mobile sportsbooks. The home of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks seats more than 70,000 fans, and is a popular year-round venue – giving sportsbooks plenty of reason to aim for a partnership agreement with the 48-year-old franchise. 

NCAA Football

Pacific Northwest bettors can bet on their share of NCAA football games – but not all of them. The state's sports betting bill prohibits players from wagering on teams based in Washington, which is a shame for graduates looking to put a little money on their alma maters. Still, there are still plenty of wagers to be made; just bet against those out-of-state Pac-12 teams you hate.

NBA

I won't dwell on the fact that there is no longer a Washington-based team in the NBA (at least for now). I would rather focus on the fact that the state still supports its hoops, which bodes well for both Snoqualmie Sportsbook and for any future sports betting sites to make their way into the state. Look for healthy NBA handles as betting continues to evolve in Washington or check out the best NBA betting sites to learn more.

NCAA Basketball

Having access to markets for hundreds of NCAA Division I men's basketball programs is nice, but some bettors from The Evergreen State will undoubtedly be disappointed that they can't wager on local teams like the Washington Huskies or Gonzaga Bulldogs. Perhaps that will change one day – at least for off-site games like those held during March Madness.

MLB

Will the Seattle Mariners follow the example set by the "other" Washington team, DC's Nationals? The Nats are the first Major League Baseball team whose stadium is connected to a retail sports betting venue (BetMGM Sportsbook). Seattle’s home stadium, T-Mobile Park, recently underwent a brand change and would likely welcome sports betting partners.

NHL

Of all the major professional sports teams to embrace sports betting partnerships when the time is right, the second-year Kraken are at the top of the list. They play in the state-of-the-art Climate Pledge Arena, which features cashier-less technology and the ability for patrons to use an app to buy swag and have it dropped off at an in-arena pickup location.

Golf

Nothing provides a betting sweat quite like watching one of your outright golf picks line up a 30-footer on the 72nd hole to win the tournament. It might not match the drama of actually being out on the course, but golf betting still packs a thrill – and thanks to a steady increase in betting markets over the years, you can now choose from hundreds of outcomes per tournament.

Soccer

The Pacific Northwest has traditionally been one of the biggest soccer hotbeds in the United States – and it will be interesting to see if that passion turns into a higher soccer handle relative to other states. Customers can wager on the local favorite Seattle Sounders FC of Major League Soccer, or opt for any of the dozens of available international leagues or tournaments.
