Wynn pens Indiana and Colorado sportsbook deals with Full House


US casino operator Wynn Resorts has agreed two deals with Full House Resorts to roll out online and mobile sports wagering services in Indiana and Colorado.

Wynn brokered both agreements through its WSI US subsidiary, the primary operating company for its interactive gaming and sports wagering business.

Further details of the two agreements were not disclosed, but Full House said the new deals mean that it has now utilised all of its permitted sports wagering opportunities in both Indiana and Colorado.

Full House operates Bronco Billy’s Casino and Hotel in Colorado and Rising Star Casino Resort in Indiana, while Wynn Resorts has land-based properties in both Nevada and Massachusetts.

In addition, Full House said that the Colorado launch is contingent on the state legalising sports wagering. In May, Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed off on a bill to legalise sports wagering, but the measure will be put to citizens in a statewide referendum scheduled for November 5.

“We are excited to partner with Wynn Resorts, allowing them to conduct mobile sports wagering throughout Indiana and Colorado,” Full House president and chief executive, Daniel Lee, said.

“Wynn Resorts is renowned for its unparalleled focus on guest service and as the premier operator in the gaming industry. We are thrilled to see them bring their unique vision to the online space, beginning with the residents of – and many visitors to – Indiana and Colorado.”

The two deals come after Full House last month also agreed a deal with Churchill Downs Incorporated to operate a retail sportsbook at the Rising Star Casino site.

Under the agreement, Churchill Downs Interactive would also be allowed to offer sports betting at Bronco Billy’s Casino and Hotel in Colorado, subject to the state legalising sport wagering.

Full House in September signed a deal for betting exchange operator Smarkets to serve as its mobile sports betting provider at the two casinos.
