WynnBet eyes online betting in AZ with San Carlos Apache Tribe deal


Wynn Resorts’ online sports betting brand WynnBet has entered into a partnership with the San Carlos Apache Tribe with the aim of securing an online sports wagering license in Arizona.

Under the agreement, WynnBet will work with the tribe’s San Carlos Apache Tribal Gaming Enterprise, which operates the Apache Gold Casino and Apache Sky Casino, to secure a new license in the state.

Market access for WynnBet in Arizona remains subject to license eligibility and availability, as well as regulatory approvals.

Should WynnBet gain the necessary approvals and secure a license, Arizona would become the 16th state in which the brand operates or plans to launch.

WynnBet is currently active across Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, Tennessee and Virginia, with market access in a number of other states.

Last month, the operator announced a new corporate partnership with Major League Baseball’s Cincinnati Reds. It is also an official partner of the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies and Detroit Pistons, an authorized gaming operator of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (Nascar), and the official online sportsbook of the Martinsville Speedway and Richmond Raceway.

In May, Wynn Resorts announced that its online subsidiary Wynn Interactive, which operates WynnBet, would merge with special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Austerlitz Acquisition Corporation I and list on the Nasdaq stock exchange.
