Wynn is a fixture in Las Vegas with its two casinos, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Las Vegas, plus Wynn Casino online. Now the company is expanding across the country with the addition of an online sportsbook. New Jersey is the first state outside of Nevada for Wynn Sportsbook, with other states soon to follow.
In the upcoming sections, we will break down what you can expect from the time you create your account with Wynn, make your first deposit, place your initial bet and hopefully collect your winnings. That also includes looking at how Wynn’s risk-free $500 bet sign-up offer works and what sports you can and cannot bet on at the online sportsbook.
So check out the guide and make sure you come back as we’ll update it when there are changes at Wynn Online Sportsbook.
Many sportsbooks have sign-up and first-time deposit offers that reward players with free bets, and Wynn Sportsbook is no exception, offering players one risk-free bet up to $500. If the bet loses you will receive a free bet credit for the amount of the original bet. Let’s look at how it works.
Start by signing up on the Wynn app. Then, make a first deposit of $20 or more. From there you simply have to make your first bet on the site, and it needs be for $20 or more, as well. If your bet wins, you collect your winnings and that’s that. However, if your bet loses, you’ll be credited with a free bet up to a maximum of $500.
With that said, there are a few aspects to pay attention to. First, you don’t need a promo or bonus code; you just need to make sure your initial deposit is for $20 or more. Second, since only your initial bet is eligible for the risk-free bet offer, it may make sense to make it a bigger bet, especially since you’ll be credited for another bet if it fails. Also, the bet must have odds between -150 and +10,000, so you need to make sure your wager falls within that range. If not, you will not qualify for your money back.
One final note, the terms and conditions state that this risk-free bet offer only runs through Jan. 31, 2021. It’s unclear if the offer will become a standing one for new Wynn Sportsbook customers, so make sure when you sign up that it is active before making your risk-free bet. If it does become a permanent promotion, we will let our readers know.

Currently, the $500 risk-free bet is the only announced promotion Wynn has to offer, although that most likely will change going forward.
Other sportsbooks across the state, and country, have a variety of promos they run with regularity. For example, FanDuel has money-back same-game parlays where you get up to $10 back if your bet loses. Meanwhile, DraftKings offers bettors the chance to get their money back, up to $20, on pregame first touchdown scorer bets if the selected player scores anytime in the specified game.
We expect Wynn will offer promotions along these lines to help encourage players to frequent its online sportsbook, and when it does, we will let you know what they are and how they work.
It is. Sports betting became legal in the Garden State in 2018, and Wynn became the 18th sportsbook app in the state in August 2020.
As for New Jersey as a whole, the state leapfrogged Nevada in terms of both sports betting revenue and handle in May 2019. New Jersey has constantly been on Nevada’s heels to claim the title of US sports betting capital.
Meanwhile, Wynn Sportsbook has been approved by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, and its lines and odds are provided by BetBull, a German company, meaning they may differ from the lines at Wynn’s Las Vegas sportsbooks.
Finally, it’s important to note that New Jersey forbids betting on all college teams from the state and on all NCAA events that take place in New Jersey, as well. Sorry, Rutgers and Seton Hall fans, you won’t be able to bet on your teams in Jersey.
Creating a Wynn Sportsbook account is not a complicated process. It will take only a couple of minutes and can be done from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection, though you will only be able to place bets in states where Wynn is legal.
Once you download the app using our links, you’ll need to enter your email address, full name, date of birth, home address, phone number and final four digits of your Social Security number. Then you’ll need to select and answer two security questions.
If all goes smoothly, your identity will be verified and you’ll be done. If there are any verification issues, you then must do two more things, though they are not much more challenging.
You’ll need to upload a form of ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, and proof of your home address, which can be your driver’s license as well or a utility bill. Then you just need to wait a few minutes for Wynn’s team to go over your documents and you’ll be all set.
If you don’t need to supply the additional verification forms, sign-up should take less than five minutes. Even if the photos are necessary, you still are looking at less than 10 minutes before you are all set to go.
While Wynn has both a retail and online sportsbook in Las Vegas, currently the only means of betting outside of Nevada is via the Wynn sportsbook app. That’s not a problem, though, as you’re able to get the Wynn app on both Android and Apple devices, by following our links. Here’s how it works.
Whether you’re using an iPhone or iPad, the process on iOS devices is basically the same. And the same can be said for Android devices like Samsung Galaxy or Google Pixel phones.
Start by following our links to Wynn’s homepage, where you’ll be able to download the app. You might be asked if you trust the source or some variation of that, in which case you’ll click yes or OK.
Once the app has finished installing, you’ll be able to create your account as detailed above. Then you’ll have the power of a top-tier sportsbook in the palm of your hand, allowing you to bet from anywhere in the state. If you’re at home and you hear breaking sports news, you can immediately sign in and put a wager down, possibly before lines change. And not only that, suddenly your favorite sports bar can now be your favorite sportsbook with the Wynn app on your phone.
The first benefit that you’ll receive when doing your sports betting with Wynn is the $500 risk-free wager you get when you make a first deposit of at least $20. For more information about how the risk-free bet works, check out the section on the Wynn bonus above.
As for features that you’ll love, the best part about the sportsbook is the simple fact that it’s an app, so whenever you have your smartphone (which is basically all the time for most people) you’ll be able to place and check your bets. Never again will you have to leave the house or make a stop in order to get your sports wagers in.
Wynn also has a great customer service department should you encounter any issues. You’re able to email, chat or call with any problems, and someone will help you resolve them.
It also is likely that Wynn will come out with different promotions and/or rewards programs, and we’ll be sure to let you know about them as soon as they are announced.
Just about every type of bet you want to make is available on Wynn’s sportsbook app. Let’s discuss them and how they work if you’re new to sports betting.
First up we’ve got moneyline bets. In this bet type, you are picking which team will win. If a team is favored, it will be listed with a negative number, while underdog teams are listed with positive figures. The bigger the number for each means the bigger the favorite or bigger the underdog.
Then there’s against the spread bets. For these, you receive a number that the team you select has to either win by in the case of favorites or not lose by more than in the case of underdogs. For example, if the Denver Broncos are listed at +7.5, that means they can lose by seven points or fewer for your bet to win. While if the Kansas City Chiefs are at -3.5, that means they need to win by four points or more for your bet to win.
Next you have over/unders, where the goal is to pick whether a listed number will end up higher or lower during the actual game. For example, if the over/under for a Los Angeles Lakers–Miami Heat game is 215.5, you will bet based on whether you think the total points scored in the game will be over or under 215.5.
Prop bets are another option at Wynn Sportsbook, and they are one of the faster growing and more popular forms of betting. Props can be just about anything, from the result of a coin flip before an NFL game, to whether an NHL player will score a goal in a game or even which player will score first during a WNBA or NBA game.
A combination of all the bets listed above is available thanks to parlays. Parlays are a series of bets rolled into one, where you must get every selection correct in order to win. Just one miss and the entire wager fails. Parlays are hugely popular because you can win a lot of money with relatively small wagers, but they’re surprisingly hard to get correct.
If you noticed something missing, you’re right, Wynn does not currently offer futures betting. We have zero doubt that will change relatively soon, but as it stands right now, you’re not able to place futures bets at Wynn’s online sportsbook.
When it comes to what sports you can bet on at Wynn, just about all the major pro and college sports are available, with one exception.
First, the one big sport that’s missing is auto racing of any kind. That means if you’re an IndyCar or NASCAR fan, you aren’t currently able to bet on the races at Wynn Sportsbook. There’s no word on whether that is going to change in the future, but there’s no reason it can’t.
Looking at the sports you can wager on, you’ve got pretty much every major pro and college sport and league. There’s football (both college football and NFL), Major League Baseball, basketball (WNBA and NBA), NHL, UFC, soccer (MLS, EPL, Champions League), PGA Tour and tennis (WTA and ATP).
Other sports you won’t find at Wynn Sportsbook are more fringe offerings such as darts, cricket or rugby. So really, as long as those sports or auto racing aren’t what you’re after, you’ll be covered at Wynn.
A final note: The state you’re doing your sports betting in could have limits on college sports wagers. For example, in Virginia, you can’t bet on any NCAA teams from the state, while in New Jersey you can’t bet on any college teams from there or any NCAA events taking place there.
Now let’s take a deeper dive and look at some of the professional and college leagues and teams that you can bet on at Wynn.
Let’s kick everything off with the NFL, the top dog when it comes to sports betting in the US. At Wynn, you’re able to engage in betting both before and during all NFL games. That includes against the spread, over/unders, moneyline and prop bets. So whether you’re a fan of the New York Giants, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks or any team in between, you’ll be taken care of at Wynn.
Jumping over to the NBA, you are able to do all the wagering you please during and before games. That includes all types of betting on every team from the Golden State Warriors out west, to the Houston Rockets in Texas or the Toronto Raptors up in Canada.
All forms of MLB betting are available at Wynn’s online sportsbook. You can bet on games before they start and also during games after every pitch with constantly changing lines and odds. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Chicago Cubs or Chicago White Sox fan or just love cheering on the National League to beat the American League in the World Series, you can do it all at Wynn.
The NHL isn’t usually as highly bet on as the other three major sports, but that doesn’t mean your betting options are limited at Wynn Sportsbook. Once again, you can partake in both live and pregame betting on all teams throughout the NHL, from the Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning to the lowly (at least in 2020) Detroit Red Wings.
The other major professional sports leagues are there for betting as well on the Wynn sports betting app. If soccer is your sport, you can bet on MLS. If you’re a women’s basketball fan, there’s WNBA betting, too. And don’t forget about golf. Tiger Woods always attracts a lot of bets in every tournament he plays. As for tennis, you obviously can bet on the majors as well as other tournaments on the WTA and ATP Tour.
On the college side of things, both men’s basketball and Division I football are available for wagering at Wynn. Whether you’re an SEC, Big Ten or Pac-12 football fan, you can bet before and during games. The same goes for all your favorite college basketball teams like the Duke Blue Devils, Kansas Jayhawks, North Carolina Tar Heels and everyone else.
While the Wynn sportsbook app is not starting out with a futures market to bet on, we expect that to change going forward, so for the time being we’re taking a look at the most likely futures markets you will be able to wager on at Wynn.
Below is just a sampling of the futures markets we believe will be available at some point at Wynn Sportsbook.
Getting started with football, you should be able to bet on the over/under for every team’s regular season win total as well as picking all the division winners, conference champions and of course the eventual Super Bowl winner, and perhaps Super Bowl MVP. When it comes to individual MVP awards, picking Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes or Ravens QB Lamar Jackson to win the MVP surely will be available, as will futures markets for offensive and defensive rookie of the year and most likely for some statistical categories, too.
In the NHL there’s no reason to think Wynn won’t have markets available for teams’ regular season performances and for selecting which teams will win each division, conference and of course the Stanley Cup. On the players’ side of things you also should be able to bet on who will win the Hart Memorial Trophy for regular season MVP and the Conn Smythe Trophy for playoff MVP.
As for the NBA, futures markets will almost certainly be available for each team’s regular season win total, the division and conference winners and for the team that wins the Larry O’Brien Trophy at the end of the playoffs. As for how many players’ futures markets there will be, that remains to be seen. Odds for MVP will be there and probably for other regular season awards too like Sixth Man and Rookie of the Year.
Finishing professional futures out with MLB, where you will be able to wager on each team’s regular season win total. Wynn also will likely have futures for all six division winners across the National and American Leagues, for the eventual NL and AL pennant winners and for the World Series winner, as well.
On the college side of things, we can assume you will get to place futures bets on which football teams will win their conference titles as well as who will win the overall national championship.
While in men’s basketball, conference championship futures might be on the table, too, but almost assuredly you’ll be able to select teams to reach the Final Four and win the overall NCAA title at the end of March Madness.
Currently, there are only a few options available to you when it comes to Wynn Sportsbook:
If you go the in-person route, you will be required to supply your full name, email address, date of birth, and last four digits of your Social Security number. You also will need to answer the two security questions you set up when creating your account. Fortunately, the options are the same for both deposit and cashing out of the Wynn app.
There are three ways to contact Wynn’s customer service should you run into any problems.
Start by logging into your Wynn app and clicking the “Wynn Sports” logo in the upper right corner. Then click on “Support & FAQ.”
From there you can email or start an online chat with a customer service representative. You also can call directly at 201-383-2837.
Before doing any of those things, though, it might save time to check the FAQ page to see if your issues already have been addressed.
As is the case at most sportsbooks, there are multiple options to help ensure responsible gambling at Wynn.
Those options begin with being able to limit the amount of money you can bet, the amount of money you’re able to deposit and the amount of time you spend on the Wynn app.
If that isn’t enough, you also can select a “cooling off” feature that will bar you from making bets for a set number of days. And as a final resort, you can elect to self-exclude from Wynn Sportsbook completely for a period of either one or five years.
Wynn’s app also has links for responsible gambling and a center with tax information, including W-9 and W-2G forms.
