Maverick Gaming currently employs more than 2,000 team members in Washington State and intends to invest $500 million in licensed card rooms and planned entertainment developments across the state.

At the core of Maverick Gaming’s Responsible Gambling approach is its ‘self-exclusion’ policy, which gives self-identified problem gamblers opportunity to avoid risking their wallets and their well-being. Washington passed a law requiring the State Gambling Commission to finalize a self-exclusion system this year, but Maverick Gaming implemented centralized self-exclusion statewide long before it was required, restricting access to problem gamblers in all its card rooms.
