A Seattle Seahawks-themed table game pit is the latest collaboration between the NFL team and Snoqualmie Casino, which was the first casino to ink an official partnership with the Seattle franchise following the Supreme Court’s 2018 decision to overthrow the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992, and the NFL’s subsequent decision to allow NFL franchises to partner with casinos.
The partnership green-lights Snoqualmie Casino’s use of the Seattle Seahawks logo for advertising and joint on-site promotions. The casino unveiled the Seahawks table game on September 18th.
The Snoqualmie Casino Seahawks Pit features three Blackjack tables, cards, and a backdrop with three 55-inch televisions. Adding to the immersive experience are beverages in branded glassware and dealers dressed for game day.
“It is important to us that we support our local community, especially in times like these,” said Snoqualmie Tribe Chairman Robert de los Angeles in a press release. “The Seahawks represent a source of pride for our team members and our neighbors. It is with great joy that we celebrate our partnership with the Seahawks and the new football season by launching the first Seattle Seahawks branded gaming area in a Native American casino.”
Snoqualmie Casino Interim President and CEO Stanford Le added: “This pit represents the spirit of our partnership and we are proud that it is the first of its kind on the West Coast and wish a warm welcome to all.”
