The company has yet to reveal just how it gained access to the market. It is unclear as to who the company’s partner is in the state.
WynnBET sports betting services coming soon
With market access, WynnBET can offer its sports betting app to players within Louisiana’s borders. Officials were hopeful that the industry would get started by the start of the new NFL season in early September, but Hurricane Ida caused delays.
Officials pushed the initial start date to early October. It may take longer for mobile wagering to begin because of the need for licensing of outside vendors by the Louisiana Gaming Control Board.
Once the industry is live, WynnBET will offer its sports betting app and desktop site to players in approved parishes. The app offers an intuitive interface and is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. Players can access bonuses, promotions, and, of course, betting lines from a smartphone or tablet.
Continual growth across the US
WynnBET recognizes that sports betting and the online gambling industry’s regulatory landscape is growing and evolving rapidly across the United States. As states legalize sports wagering, WynnBET can expand into new markets once access agreements are signed. The company plans to continue its expansion into other states in the future. WynnBET is currently negotiating for market access in seven more states; if it gets approval in each, the brand would have a US footprint covering 77% of the adult population within the country.
WynnBET is now the official sports betting partner of the New York Jets, signing a multi-year deal last month. With the deal, the brand will offer the WynnBET Green Room at MetLife Stadium, where fans can enjoy an adult space for viewing the game and betting.
The deal also includes presenting partner rights on the Jets’ podcast network. The sportsbook plans to work with the network’s Jets-related shows, including The Official Jets Podcast and the Jets Game Preview.
WynnBET is also working with UK-based data company Genius Sports. The two have signed an NFL and fan engagement partnership with the operator gaining access to an exclusive NFL offering. Genius Sports plans to provide official data feeds for WynnBET and player acquisition and fan engagement solutions.
