Massachusetts players can still place bets at retail locations.

WynnBet has announced that it will no longer offer online sports betting services in Massachusetts.

The company said in a statement on social media, “WynnBet online has ceased sports wagering in Massachusetts on Monday, Feb. 12. Patrons have 30 days from today to withdraw their funds through the app.”

The operator cited “commercial reasons” as the cause of pulling out of the state. Mobile app users will have access to their betting history and online accounts until March 12, WynnBet said.

WynnBet went on to explain the process for retrieving account funds by saying, “Bets that were placed prior to the announced cessation, for events that occur after the 30-day cessation period February 12, will be settled and paid out according to the market result. 

“For open bets that settle after March 12, the patron will be contacted by a WynnBet customer support representative.”

Though Massachusetts residents will no longer have the option to place bets through the WynnBet app, the company said it will continue to offer retail sports betting services at Encore Boston Harbor.

Any Wynn Rewards CompDollars players have accumulated are still redeemable. Encore Boston Harbor, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore at Wynn Las Vegas will continue to redeem rewards for customers.

Players can place bets there through the casino’s kiosks.

This is not the only state that WynnBet is leaving. The company has also ceased to operate its online app in Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. 

However, players in Michigan, Arizona and New York will still have access to the app.
