Gambling in Washington State

I just came back from Seattle and was surprised to find out that gambling is legal in the State of Washington. I mainly played just south of downtown Seattle in Renton, Tukwila, and SeaTac. I played Spanish 21 (blackjack with sucker bets), played in a holdem tournament with a $40 buy in and played Ultimate Texas Holdem Table Game.

In short, I came back up and the casinos are much smaller in general - but all over. Think of an Applebee's sized casino. In the tournament I played I went out mid-pack when my quad 4's were beaten by quad Q's. I was behind all the way and never knew it. That is fine though because I then went to the Ultimate Texas Holdem Table and hit quad 10's with a bonus and made over 3x my initial investment on one hand.
