WynnBET is a completely serviceable sports betting app, which is to say that it’s fine on all the basics, but overwhelmingly average compared to the features you’ll find on the top betting apps.
Top Takeaways for 2021
After testing 20 online sportsbooks for our 2021 review, here are our top findings on WynnBET:
- The variety of bets and live bets is not yet on par with DraftKings or PointsBet, which are both available in the same states where WynnBET operates.
- WynnBET’s promotions for new users are excellent (plus there are three to choose from). But where are the ongoing promotions for existing customers? Answer: There aren’t any.
- No educational content is available for new bettors, which is both surprising and frustrating if you’re new to sports betting.

What states is WynnBET legal in?
WynnBET is available online in the following states:
- New Jersey
Casino: Of the states WynnBET operates in, Michigan has legalized online casino games. WynnBet’s selection of casino games features 206 slots, virtual table games (such as roulette, blackjack) and virtual poker. (Note: This review focuses on sports betting and not online casino games.)
What do you need to create a WynnBET account?
Creating a WynnBET account takes about five minutes and requires the following information:
- First and last name
- Last four digits of your social security number
Although creating an account is quick and easy, you can test drive the app without creating an account. Just by downloading the app you can view the layout, promotions, sports and bets offered, and more. I recommend doing this to see if you like the user interface before actually creating an account.
WynnBET vs other sportsbooks
Compared to other popular sportsbooks, WynnBET stacks up as an underdog:
- Sports and bets offered - WynnBet has all of the most basic bet types and all of the most popular sports. If you're looking for unique bets, contests, and ways to bet we recommend DraftKings or PointsBet.
- Promotions - Promotions for new customers at WynnBET stack up with the best in the business. Ongoing promotions are lackluster, especially when compared to DraftKings or BetMGM.
- Mobile betting - The WynnBET mobile app is easy to use and offers all of the basic features and functionality to bet on the go.
- Odds - WynnBET ranked 18th out of the 20 sportsbooks we tested in 2021. If competitive odds are important to you check out William Hill or theScore Bet.

If you’re looking for a sports betting glossary, a guide on reading odds, or explanations of popular bets, WynnBET will keep you searching. It’s one of a select few sportsbooks we’ve reviewed on Moneyline that offers absolutely no betting education.
WynnBET customer service
WynnBET currently offers email support, live chat support, and phone support. Live chat is 24/7 while phone support goes from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
- Phone support - 201-383-2837
- Email support - firstname.lastname@example.org (email varies by state)
- Live chat support - available at WynnBET 24/7
WynnBET’s first-deposit bonuses go toe to toe with the best sportsbooks. But after the honeymoon period, the sportsbook completely ghosts bettors, offering no ongoing promotions for existing customers.
WynnBET welcome bonus
WynnBET offers three kick-butt promotions for new users, which allows bettors to choose the one that best fits them (which isn’t always the case at other sportsbooks). The value of the risk-free bet varies by state, ranging from $500 to $1,000. New users can choose to…
- Receive a 100% deposit match bonus up to $1,000 + 200 free spins on divine fortunes slots;
- Receive a 100% deposit match bonus up to $1,250 (casino only), or
- Receive a risk-free bet up to $1,000 (if your bet loses you must use the risk-free bet in 10 days or it expires)
WynnBET ongoing promotions
To my surprise, WynnBET was offering no ongoing promotions when this review was written in February 2021 (boo). For comparison, top sportsbooks almost always have three to eight ongoing promotions, especially during the winter months. The lack of promotions for existing customers significantly dampened WynnBET’s overall rating in this category.
What sports can you bet on at WynnBET?
WynnBET offers betting on 15 different sports throughout the year.

What bet types are available at WynnBET?
WynnBET offers all standard bets including spread, moneyline, total, parlay, future, and prop bets.
In terms of of bet variety WynnBET mostly sticks to the basics. That’s fine, but why settle for vanilla ice cream when you can get hot fudge, caramel and sprinkles elsewhere for no additional cost? Over at DraftKings, PointsBet, and Barstool Sportsbook they’re serving custom bets, daily odds boosts, contests and new bet types, in addition to opening up the action on more obscure sports such as darts and handball.
WynnBet odds compared to other sportsbooks
As denoted by the table below, WynnBET offers good odds on NCAAF moneyline bets and NBA spread bets. For comparison, if average NCAAF moneyline odds on a team are +130 at other sports betting sites, WynnBET might offer odds at +140. In this example, every dollar wagered would return $1.40 at WynnBET versus $1.30 at other sites.
Meanwhile, WynnBET offers below average odds on NCAAB moneyline bets, NBA moneyline bets, NHL moneyline bets, NHL total bets, soccer moneyline bets, and NHL spread bets. For comparison, if average NHL spread odds on a team are -110 at other sports betting sites, WynnBET might offer odds at -115. In this example, every dollar wagered would return $.87 at WynnBET versus $.91 at other sites.
|NBA Moneyline||Below Average|
|NCAAB Moneyline||Below Average|
Methodology: To score Odds, Moneyline.com gathered data from 20 sportsbooks over five months. For our 2021 Sportsbook Review, over 34,000 data points were collected for spread, moneyline, and over/under (bets).
Leagues and bet types collected include NCAA football moneyline bets, NCAA basketball moneyline bets, NFL moneyline, spread and total bets, NBA spread, moneyline and total bets, NHL moneyline, puckline and total bets, and soccer 3-way result (moneyline) bets. When collecting odds, we made sure to collect the same games at the same time for each sportsbook, ensuring data accuracy.
WynnBET Mobile App
WynnBET’s mobile app provides all the necessary features that allow bettors to search for the game or bet they’re looking for and quickly throw down some money. Some people will find the app easy to use, but I prefer the layout used by competitors such as PointsBet or FanDuel. These sportsbooks offer dedicated tabs to view your bet slip and make it much easier to navigate to live games.
This may sound nitpicky, but I get impatient when first entering the app at the three extra seconds it takes WynnBET to load. Another knock against WynnBET’s mobile app is the clunky and outdated way games are laid out. You’ll find the design and navigation more modern and user-friendly at other sports betting apps.
Slot fans will find a whopping 206 online games, ranging from Jack and the Beanstalk to Ozzy Ozbourne, to Smash the Pig and dozens of other flavors of slot machines. There are also multiple variants of blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and video poker. In other words, there's a little something for everyone.
WynnBET is operated by Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ: WYNN), which owns and operates Wynn Hotel and Casino properties in Las Vegas and elsewhere.
Is WynnBET safe?
Yes, WynnBET is a safe and legal sportsbook, operated by the following regulatory bodies
- Colorado - Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission
- Indiana - Indiana Gaming Commission
- Michigan - Michigan Gaming Control Board (MCGB)
- New Jersey - Division of Gaming Enforcement
- Tennessee - Tennessee Lottery
- Virginia - Virginia Lottery
There’s nothing inherently wrong with WynnBET’s betting app. Still, compared to top sportsbooks like DraftKings, FanDuel and PointsBet, nothing about it rises to above average, either. As a primary sports betting option, you’ll get more bet variety, ongoing promotions, live betting features, and educational content at those other sportsbooks.
How does the WynnBET $1000 risk-free bet work?
Once you open an account deposit up to $1000. Place your first bet, up to $1000. If your first bet wins, the promotion is over and you win your bet. If your first bet loses, WynnBET will refund it, up to $1000 in a free bet.
If your bet loses you must place the free bet before withdrawing any winnings. This means if you bet $1000 on your first bet and lose, you must bet the $1000 free bet in your account. If you win that bet you can withdraw any winnings. If you lose that bet you are out of luck. Remember to only bet with what you are comfortable with.
