WynnBET, the New Jersey-based casino and sports betting app from luxury hospitality leader Wynn Resorts, announced a partnership with the San Carlos Apache Tribe to pursue an online sports betting license in Arizona.
Arizona is the 16th state added to a growing list of places where WynnBET operates or plans to launch.
WynnBET will work with the San Carlos Apache Tribal Gaming Enterprise, which operates the Apache Gold Casino and Apache Sky Casino. The partnership is subject to license eligibility and availability, as Arizona’s sports betting law made only 10 licenses available for tribal casinos.
The company describes its mobile betting platform as “frictionless, intuitive and quietly sophisticated.” Wynn Resorts acquisition of BetBull in 2020 allows WynnBET to provide social sports betting technology and one-of-a-kind experiences.
Partnerships between sports betting books and professional sports teams and tribal casinos have been announced since Gov. Ducey signed the sports betting bill into law on April 15.
The Phoenix Suns partnered with FanDuel on a retail sportsbook in the arena, beginning next season. DraftKings will run a sportsbook at TPC Scottsdale, where the Waste Management Phoenix Open is played. The Arizona Diamondbacks are planning a sportsbook to be in the plaza next to Chase Field that will be operated by Caesars Entertainment.
Arizona residents can begin placing sports bets on September 9, just in time for the NFL season.
