Sports betting in Massachusetts can only be done in person right now, but in a few weeks, MA mobile betting apps will take the industry to the next level in the Bay State. At full capacity, Massachusetts could see up to 15 mobile licenses granted. So far, 11 have been claimed and approved by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC).
That list includes WynnBET Sportsbook Massachusetts, the online sports betting platform of Wynn Resorts.
WynnBET is a quality sportsbook that has a lot to offer sports fans in Massachusetts. Let’s take a closer look at what to expect from WynnBET when it launches in Massachusetts:
When will WynnBET be live in Massachusetts?
WynnBET Sportsbook is already in Massachusetts, although bets can only be placed in person at Encore Boston Harbor. The sprawling resort complex opened in 2019, and began accepting sports bets on Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 10 a.m. In addition, once mobile betting in MA launches, you will be able to place bets at Encore Boston Harbor via WynnBET’s sportsbook app.
Mobile betting apps will launch March 10. This is according to Karen Wells, Executive Director of the MGC. Wells said the launch timeline depends on the quality of the online sportsbook operators’ internal control submissions, as well as their responses to issues raised by the regulators.
Like most major players in the online sports betting space, WynnBET has a sleek mobile app for Android and iOS, as well as a high quality website. The app uses a fingerprint login for added security.
Possible WynnBET launch promos
Massachusetts will be the 10th state in which WynnBET operates its mobile sportsbook. As of February, WynnBET is available in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, and Virginia.
When launching in those states, the platform ran various welcome bonus offers to new users. We expect this to ring true when the sportsbook debuts in Massachusetts.
Currently, new users in any of its nine markets can receive $100 in free bets. In order to claim this offer, fans need to place a $100 bet to receive $100 in complimentary wagers. In addition a welcome bonus, we expect WynnBET to offer regular promos to all users such as bet insurance, odds boosts, and deposit bonuses. Right now, the platform has over 40 offers listed on the promotions page of its website.
One perk that separates WynnBET from the competition is the Wynn Rewards program. Patrons of Wynn Resort properties in the U.S. can earn points and redeem them in the sportsbook app for online play, or at properties for hotel room upgrades, dining, and other resort amenities.

WynnBET’s sports betting podcasts
Until mobile sports betting goes live in Massachusetts, fans can enjoy several WynnBET sports-themed podcasts. The podcasts are available on the WynnBET website or via popular music services, including Spotify and Apple Music. The podcasts feature celebrity athlete hosts, game previews, analyses, odds overviews, and interviews.
When mobile sports wagering becomes fully operational in Massachusetts, fans can expect that WynnBET will be on the ground running and ready to take bets.
