Wynn extends SG Digital partnership into Indiana and Colorado


Casino giant Wynn Resorts will look to build on July’s launch of a Scientific Games-powered sports betting and igaming offering in New Jersey by extending the partnership into Colorado and Indiana.

This extension will Wynn deploy SG Digital’s OpenSports enterprise solution for online sports wagering in each state, supported by the OpenPlatform player account management platform.

Wynn secured market access to Colorado and Indiana through an agreement with casino operator Full House Resorts, which was announced in October last year.

“We’re thrilled to be working alongside Wynn Resorts and their exceptional team as our partnership expands,” Scientific Games Digital chief executive Jordan Levin said. 

“We look forward to developing entertainment opportunities and delivering unmissable sports betting and igaming experiences for players in these states.”

Wynn launched its New Jersey-facing betting and gaming offering in July, for which Scientific Games is providing platforms, a managed sports trading service and content aggregation system that gives the operator access to more than 2,000 online casino titles. 

The relationship between the two businesses was struck in April 2019.

Wynn previously agreed a strategic partnership with BetBull, in October 2018, through which the European sportsbook operator was to provide sports betting technology to develop a “nationally recognised brand” across the US. Wynn took a 22.5% stake in BetBull through that agreement.

There have been few updates on the progress of that agreement since, however.

For the first half of the year, Wynn reported a $1.04bn net loss, after the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic forced its properties in the US and Macau to close for much of the second quarter.
