Wynn has been a respected brand in Nevada since 2005, offering casino betting, horse racing, and sports betting to a sophisticated audience. Often receiving high marks from reviewers and patrons, this brand was also one of the first to release an online casino app when online betting became legal in Nevada.
The WynnBET service is the updated version of Wynn Resorts Limited’s online sports betting provider. Today, new and experienced bettors can try the legal and regulated WynnBET service in Nevada, Colorado, Michigan, New Jersey, Virginia, Tennessee, Indiana, Arizona, New York, and Louisiana, with more states being rolled out in the near future. We’ll dive into a thorough examination of the app and its features, while doing the legwork to inform readers when they can expect WynnBET to release a betting app in their state — with a sportsbook welcome bonus available.

While aggressively pursuing expansion all across the U.S. in regulated markets, WynnBET is currently available in NV, CO, MI, NJ, VA, TN, IN, AZ, NY, and LA. Wynn Resorts finalized a partnership with the EU-based betting tech firm BetBull to provide a framework for the WynnBET online sportsbook brand in New Jersey and beyond. This partnership, part of Wynn Sports Interactive, will be the driving force behind future versions of the WynnBET app in other states. Scientific Games, one of the US’s top iGaming design firms, will also have a hand in the design and implementation of these apps. The tech group GAN will be involved at least in Wynn’s Michigan product, as well.
Wynn Resorts (known as WSI US, LLC) entered an agreement with Full House Resorts in late 2019 to offer a mobile sports wagering platform in both Indiana and Colorado. Wynn has also hit the market in in Tennessee.
In short, visitors and residents of multiple states who are of legal gambling age now have full access to the breadth of features offered by WynnBET, and that list is growing.
After signing up for a new WynnBET account and making your first deposit, you will have the opportunity to bet just $50 and pocket $200 free. Be sure to use WynnBET promo code XHANDLE to claim this offer.

|Bonus Valid||May 2022|
The way this works is as follows:
The free bets are distributed in increments of $50 and the first one will be credited to your account within 72 hours of the initial wager’s settlement. From there, you’ll get one of the four $50 free bets every week over the span of about one month. Free bets from WynnBET typically expire 10 days after issuance, so always keep track of the expiration date and be sure to use them before it’s too late!
The WynnBET online sportsbook is an example of a decent modern sportsbook that could be a bit more focused. Offering a decent set of promotions is fine, but an app will really shine if it has two qualities: ease of use and a good variety of gaming options. WynnBET offers both to varying degrees, and is perhaps best suited to the more casual, intermediately skilled sports bettor. There are a few areas in which the app could improve its services for sports bettors specifically, but for the most part functions well for the average bettor.
When you’re using any online sportsbook in the U.S., you need to make sure location services are enabled on your iOS or Android apps before making a wager. In fact, most apps will outright boot you unless you share your location, as it is a legal requirement to be within the state lines of your preferred sports betting app. That’s why all sports betting apps, including WynnBET, are branded to specific state jurisdictions.
The WynnBET app is approved by the designated regulatory authority in each of its areas of operation, such as the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement in the Garden State. When registering, you will be asked to share personal details — to help protect your identity — in order to finalize your account and start wagering. As these apps are regulated by state legislative bodies, you can be sure your information is in safe hands. Remember, you must be 21 or older to use this app, and keep location services enabled whenever you are wagering using WynnBET.
All gambling providers in the U.S. are required to allow bettors to place limits on their activity. This includes putting spending limits or time limits on your account or excluding yourself from betting altogether. If you’ve excluded yourself from betting in the state in which you’re playing, logically, you won’t be able to open or access a sportsbook account until that exclusion period is over.
WynnBET sportsbook is a fine app, providing strong odds in a legible and functional package. It’s got just enough features and sports to keep the average bettor engaged, but there is a bit of room for improvement when it comes to available sports markets and extra features specific to sports betting.
WynnBET’s web-based desktop client is a phenomenal representation of the brand and their mobile app. The desktop site features the same home screen as the mobile app, with a little extra space on each side. The left side of the screen on desktop is occupied by the ‘Search’ menu that lists all sports markets from A to Z, while the ‘Betslip’ on the right side remains vacant for any potential selections. All in all, the desktop website does a fantastic job of utilizing the extra space while not taking too much away from the product itself. WynnBET’s desktop website is fully operational and mirrors each and every function that can be done from the mobile app. At the end of the day, the choice of whether to use the app or website fully comes down to personal preference.
Once you’re on WynnBET, you’ll have access to a variety of bet types, including:
WynnBET also offers a strong selection of sports markets, including but not limited to the following:
We’re hoping that once WynnBET is finished with their recent spate of state releases, they’ll focus on offering new betting markets and beefing up their offering of live bets. This effort is already obviously underway, as we recently observed a good number of in-game alternative lines and totals on quarters, halves, and player props across a 7-game slate of NBA contests.
One of our biggest disappointments and criticisms is a very limited market for player and game props. On a Wednesday before a Thursday Night Football contest, competitors including FanDuel and DraftKings have a bevy of player prop markets including rushing yards, passing yards, receptions, first touchdown scorer, winning margin, even kicking props. WynnBET has the very basics – but that’s about it. Their menu is extremely limited and they’re on the slower side when it comes to posting player props.
WynnBET has got to open up the playbook on this front before it can expect to rival the big boys.
Current and expectant WynnBET users can earn rewards simply by placing wagers on sports and in the casino. WynnBET’s rewards program is broken down into three tiers: Red, Platinum, and Black. All new users will start out as Red and can work their way up over the course of the calendar year. Platinum status can be achieved by accumulating at least 7,000 tier credits, while Black status will take 10x as much at 70,000.
While placing action with WynnBET, players will rack up two redeemable forms of loyalty rewards: FREECREDIT and COMPDOLLARS. FREECREDIT is the more important of the two, as it can be used to redeem items from the app’s Reward Store. Ranging from a $5 casino credit to a $100 free bet on sports, players have tons of options on how exactly they can spend their FREECREDITS. On the other side of things, COMPDOLLARS are only good for hotel discounts and other offers of that nature. If you don’t plan on visiting one of Wynn’s luxurious resorts anytime soon, then COMPDOLLARS probably aren’t going to be much of a concern to you.
Both FREECREDIT and COMPDOLLARS will appear in your account within 24 hours after bet settlement and will expire twelve (12) months after issuance. Use them before you lose them!
At the moment, WynnBET offers a decent amount of options for making deposits and withdrawals to and from your WynnBET account. As with most online sportsbooks in the U.S., your options for withdrawal are more limited than those for depositing, and brief wait times when withdrawing winnings from your account should be expected.
Of specific interest is the Play+ card, quickly becoming a standard with sportsbooks throughout the industry. With the Play+ card as an intermediary, you can use services like PayPal to add funds to your Play+ card and even use the card itself for cash withdrawals at any ATM. Until WynnBET expands its banking options, the Play+ prepaid card is a versatile substitute.

Withdrawal options at WynnBET:
Though this is a relatively limited list, we’re hoping that as WynnBET rolls out in other states, we can see the addition of payment methods like PayNearMe. Still, as previously mentioned, the Play+ card is a well-functioning intermediary, and does have a bit more options than WynnBET alone.
The WynnBET customer support experience is above average. On the plus side, WynnBET offers phone, email, and live chat options. The latter, live chat, is always a good sign– having live chat options are an indicator that an operator is attempting to give users the ability to get hands-on support when it’s convenient for them. If you have a more detailed issue, it’s best to reach out to the phone support team or send them an email. Each WynnBET state will have their very own customer support email and phone number which can be accessed at any time by clicking on ‘Support & FAQ.’
We’d like to see a sportsbook operator more fully flesh out their promotions, available markets, and betting choices before trying to “fight a war on two fronts” by additionally offering casino gaming.
If you dabble into the online casino in available states, the selection of games is competitive with most online casinos in the U.S., and the addition of Live Dealer games is something we always look for in a modern online casino that wants to offer its users the most immersive experience possible.
Wynn has invested a lot of money recently into the sportsbook space as it looks to rival the likes of DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM and Caesars Sportsbook (formerly William Hill), which have a big head start in multiple U.S. jurisdictions. There’s a lot of ground to make up but the backbone of a solid betting app is there.
