TULALIP, WA - Slot machines at the Tulalip Casino, Quil Ceda Creek Casino and Angel of the Winds Casino will soon take cash (or tickets) just like Las Vegas.
"The guest will have a more seamless experience, just like they do anywhere outside Washington," said Marci Fryberg, Executive VP at Tulalip Casino. "We're working diligently on the project and we hope to have it done soon."
Since Washington's Indian casinos first opened in 1992, gamblers have purchased tickets at kiosks to play the slot machines.
Last year in an agreement signed by 27 Washington state tribes and the state Gambling Commission, casinos can modify their slot machines to take cash directly. It is not clear when the modified machines will be ready.
In the interim the two Tulalip casinos have modified their slots to enable players to use any ticket to play any machine. The 800 machines at Quil Ceda Creek Casino now accept all three tickets, and the 2,025 machines at the Tulalip Casino will accept all three tickets soon.
The 540 slot machines at the Angel of the Winds Casino will accept cash by the end of the month. The casino will have 1000 machines in December when it completes its current expansion project.
