Washington regulator lifts wager limit for cardrooms to $400, despite tribal opposition
Washington's gambling regulator has raised the wager limit for cardrooms to $400, a significant win for these establishments and a move set to increase competition with tribal casinos
The gambling regulator in Washington has increased the wager limit for cardrooms from $300 to $400, a major win for these establishments and the first increase in over a decade.
The decision came after a 3-2 vote in favor by the regulatory commissioners, despite opposition from tribal operators.
This move was backed by Maverick Gaming, a major operator of cardrooms in the state, which had previously petitioned for a limit increase to $500 amid rising inflation.
The new limit is expected to help cardrooms compete more effectively with tribal casinos.
