Silver Reef Casino Resort to debut Betfred sports betting space


Washington’s sports betting scene is to gain a fresh face after the Lummi Nation’s Silver Reef Casino Resort disclosed that its retail ambitions will come to fruition today alongside Betfred USA Sports.

This will see the gaming destination, which is located in the northwest of the state between Seattle and Vancouver, officially open its sportsbook space on Wednesday 31 August at 1pm local time. 

The honorary first best will be placed by former NFL quarterback and hall of famer Warren Moon, who spent a large portion of his career at the Houston Oilers but also represented the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs.

Bryan Bennett, Betfred USA Sports Chief Operating Officer, noted: “We look forward to utilising our 50 years of bookmaking experience to make the Betfred Sportsbook at Silver Reef Casino Resort the go-to destination for sports wagering in the state. 

“We’ve long been eyeing the state of Washington and are excited to enter the market in partnership with Lummi Nation and the team at Silver Reef Casino.”

The land-based sports betting space, which will occupy the site formerly occupied by the Portage Bay Bar, will include multiple high resolution video walls, sportsbook seating, multiple betting stations and self-serve kiosks.

“We are extremely excited about opening and operating the sportsbook with our partner Betfred,” stated Marty Sauvage, CEO of Silver Reef Casino Resort. 

“The sportsbook will be a fantastic new amenity for our guests and will enable us to continue delivering the premier gaming and resort experience in the Northwest.”

The Silver Reef Casino Resort features over 1,000 slots, more than 16 table games, 206 hotel rooms, full-service spa, 18-hole championship golf course named Loomis Trail, multiple restaurants, and bars, and over 30,000 feet of meeting space.
