Wynn Resorts on Thursday said its WynnBET casino and sports betting app will open its virtual doors to bettors in Michigan this month, following approval from the Michigan Gaming Control Board.
WynnBET will be available for registration and use throughout the state, the company said.
The app includes sports betting and casino games.
WynnBET gained market access in Michigan through a multi-year deal with GAN and the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, Wynn Resorts reported.
“We are excited to bring WynnBET and the Wynn betting experience to Michigan, the first of many additional states we intend to enter in 2021,” Craig Billings, president of Wynn Resorts, said in a statement. “With its large and highly engaged community of sports and casino fans, we are confident that Michigan will become a meaningful market for us.”
In addition to Michigan, WynnBET currently is available in New Jersey and Colorado, with market access secured in Indiana, Iowa, Nevada and Massachusetts. For the latter, the company entered a market access agreement with Encore Boston Harbor that will become effective subject to legalization of online sports betting in Massachusetts and determination of licensee eligibility.
WynnBET also has submitted for licensure in Tennessee and Virginia, but is awaiting legalization and required approvals by regulatory authorities.
