WynnBET, the online sports betting and igaming app from Wynn Resorts, has partnered with Delaware North to acquire market access in West Virginia for online sportsbook and casino operations.
Delaware North is a global hospitality and entertainment company with a portfolio of regional gaming venues. The company owns and operates two casinos in West Virginia – Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack in Wheeling and Mardi Gras Casino & Resort in Nitro, near Charleston.
Both casinos operate retail sportsbooks, and Delaware North also runs Betly, its own website and mobile sports betting app.
West Virginia is the 18th state in which WynnBET has secured varying degrees of market access.
The sportsbook is currently available in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Virginia, and is in negotiations to obtain access in seven additional states.
Last month, WynnBET appointed 20-year gaming industry veteran Ian Williams as its new COO. In this role, he will manage the company’s trading, marketing, customer service, payments, and data science teams, reporting directly to Wynn Interactive CEO Craig Billings.
