WynnBET Now Live in Nine after Launch in Louisiana

Online sports betting and casino gaming brand of Wynn Resorts International WynnBET announced today that its presence across US gaming jurisdictions has been expanded after the launch of operations in Louisiana.

Operation Expansion Continues

Following the launch in Louisiana, online casino players and sports bettors in the state can download the WynnBET mobile app or visit the state-designated website to start to begin wagering. WynnBET acquired market access in the Bayou State in the fall of 2021.

In preparation for the upcoming launch in Louisiana, the brand operated by the global leader in luxury hospitality Wynn Resorts, utilized the services of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neil to spearhead its marketing campaign and raise the brand’s awareness before arrival. WynnBET and Shaq joined forces in August when the former NBA superstar was appointed global brand ambassador.

Louisiana became the ninth state in which WynnBET is live with operations, following in the footsteps of New York, Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Virginia. WynnBET online sportsbook went live in New York on February 4.

Access to Wynn Rewards

Upon launch, WynnBET patrons in Louisiana gained immediate access to the Wynn Rewards loyalty program, supported by the parent company and offering a variety of real-life experiences and benefits at Wynn Resorts properties. Existing Wynn Rewards members will connect their accounts after completing their WynnBet registration.

And for new players in the state, WynnBET is coming up with an enticing offer, Bet $10 Win $200, allowing every new registration to receive $200 in free bets upon depositing and wagering at least $10 in a first-time straight or parlay bet.

The launch in Louisiana is expected to be followed soon with a launch in Iowa where Wynn Interactive secured a multi-year partnership deal with the integrated resort company Elite Casino Resorts, owner and operator of Riverside Casino and Golf Resort in January 2021.

The online sports betting and gaming brand, an Approved Sportsbook Operator of the NFL, an Authorized Gaming Operator of NASCAR, MLB, and NBA, as well as a marketing partner of franchises from the NFL, NBA, and MLB, is poised for rapid expansion, having several pending license applications.
