MediaTroopers has received an ancillary sports wagering license from the Washington State Gambling Commission, giving the company permission to provide its sports betting services in the state.

The digital marketing agency can now offer its marketing services and knowledge in online gambling and sports betting markets to potential partners in the Evergreen State.

“MediaTroopers is pleased to announce that we’ve received our Ancillary Sports Wagering License from the Washington State Gambling Commission,” commented Shmulik Segal, CEO and Co-Founder of MediaTroopers.

“Despite Washington State’s unconventional route to legalized sports betting, we have high hopes and a great belief in this emerging market.”

Sports betting was legalized in Washington State in 2020, but it is currently only permitted at tribal casinos, while mobile sports wagering is only allowed while on tribal land. The state’s first retail sportsbook opened at the Snoqualmie Casino in September last year.

In the past year, MediaTroopers has secured licenses to operate in several states, including New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.

Segal continued: “Here at MediaTroopers, we are beyond thrilled to have been awarded this prestigious license from the WSG.

“As we strive to provide our clients with country-wide coverage and the advantage of far reach. This expansion into Washington State is a huge milestone for us, allowing us to reach new audiences and prospective bettors in the Evergreen State.”

“Still, we are mindful that with this incredible opportunity comes the responsibility to promote safe yet entertaining sports betting to our customers in the Evergreen State.

“After many successful launches throughout 2022, including in states like Mississippi and Louisiana and provinces like Ontario, we are looking forward to working in Washington State and bringing its people plenty of excitement with safe sports betting.”
