The WynnBET online casino is open for business to players in New Jersey and Michigan, and the site is looking to launch in Pennsylvania, as well. A relative newcomer to the online casino game, WynnBET offers players a selection of slots, table games and video poker.
The Wynn Las Vegas first opened in 2005 as part of the rapid expansion of large casinos and resorts on the famed Las Vegas Strip. Three years later, the adjoining Encore Las Vegas opened. Since then, other Wynn Resorts properties have appeared, including in Macao and Massachusetts.
Wynn first moved outside Nevada by going online in August 2020. That’s when Wynn partnered with Caesars Entertainment to launch one of Caesars’ several online casino skins in New Jersey. Later in Michigan, Wynn partnered with the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, which operates five casinos in the state. WynnBET launched there in January 2021.
Current plans include bringing the WynnBET online casino to other states, with Pennsylvania likely next in line. Meanwhile, the WynnBET online sportsbook is already available in a greater number of states than the casino product.
Powered by Scientific Games, the WynnBET site and app offer the combined casino and sportsbook in states where online casinos are legal. That makes it easy for those who enjoy wagering on sports to switch back and forth between the casino and sportsbook while using a single account.
Here’s a review of what visitors to the online casino can expect to find, including a look at its welcome bonus, instructions for getting an account and downloading the WynnBET app, a rundown of site features and game selection, and information about banking options and customer service.
New WynnBET players can receive a 100% deposit match bonus worth up to $250 when making their first deposit on the site. After creating an account, players who opt in to this promotion are invited to make a deposit of at least $30. Whatever amount the player deposits, WynnBET will provide a matching bonus up to a maximum of $250.
On the one hand, this is a small dollar amount for a matching bonus when compared to other online casinos. However, it comes with just a 1x playthrough requirement, unlike the larger requirements you may see elsewhere. In other words, you only have to bet your bonus once to turn it into cash, which you can then play with or withdraw.
By comparison, other sites often have playthrough requirements of 20x or more, which means you need to gamble tens of thousands of dollars to claim the full bonus. Thus, while Wynn’s bonus might look small on paper, it’s a better deal for casual players who might not want to bet that much.

There is currently does no loyalty or rewards program available at WynnBET. Occasionally, the site will run small free spins promotions for existing players, but there is nothing in place at present to reward high-volume players.
Combined with the small but easy-to-clear first deposit bonus, this makes Wynn a much more appealing site for low stakes casual players than for high rollers.
WynnBET does invite players to participate in a VIP Preferred program for banking, but this is not a loyalty program.
Signing up for a WynnBET account is a simple, quick process. Start by clicking the gold “Register” button, then follow the directions from there. As you complete the multi-step process, you will create your own username and password. You will also need to supply the following personal details to verify your identity:
All legal and licensed online casinos require such information, as they are regulated to do so. Strict identity verification measures help with site security as well as keeping you, the player, safe from fraud.
You can access the online casino via any mobile device after you download and install the WynnBET app. The app is available for both Apple and Android devices. As mentioned above, the same app contains the WynnBET online sportsbook as well as the casino.
In New Jersey, you can access WynnBET only via its app. That is to say, there is no browser-based version of the casino. In Michigan, however, you have a choice. You can use either the app or visit the casinos through your web browser on laptop or desktop.
Visit the WynnBET site to download the app for your device. When searching for and downloading the app, be sure to choose the correct one for your state, as there are different apps for each state.
WynnBET has an attractive appearance featuring a smart-looking dark blue, black and gold color scheme with easy-to-read white text. The desktop version employs a similar design to other online casinos, with quick links to different game categories (e.g., slots, roulette, table games) at the top, and large icons for individual games appearing below.
On the app, unfortunately, all the games appear together in one long, scrollable list. In other words, there isn’t a way to browse games by category as there is on the web-based site. This isn’t very convenient, but at least the app does feature a search bar that enables you to seek out particular games or game types.
Whichever version of the casino you’re using, in the upper right you’ll find a menu including settings, banking, customer support, promotions and information about responsible gambling. Both the app and the browser-based casino include a link to the sportsbook, but in different places. In the web version, you’ll find it along the top, whereas it’s at the bottom in the app. The sportsbook features the same shortcut back to the casino.
The site runs smoothly with top-quality animations, graphics and sounds that combine to provide an immersive gambling experience.
The games available at WynnBET differ slightly depending on your state. Slots are the primary focus everywhere, with table games receiving less attention, although the online casino continues to add more of these. Live dealer games are available in New Jersey, and should become available in Michigan once Evolution’s live dealer studio opens there.
Where both a web-based version and an app version of WynnBET are available, the web-based site tends to have a few more games than the app.
Currently WynnBET features around 100 slot titles, depending on your location. Other online casinos have a much wider selection, although WynnBET does offer many favorite titles of slots players. Popular slots options include the following:
WynnBET only features a very modest selection of table games in New Jersey, with only a couple of blackjack options, two roulette games and three video poker titles.
There are more choices for each game type available on the Michigan site, with just over 20 table games total (including video poker), with six choices each of blackjack, roulette and video poker, two baccarat games, and casino war.
WynnBET has an impressive array of live dealer games in New Jersey. In Michigan, meanwhile, no one yet has the capacity to offer these products, but they should begin to appear later in 2021. WynnBET works with Evolution Gaming to power its live dealer games:
Wynn BET offers a variety of ways to fund your account and to withdraw your money. Remember, its online casino and sportsbook are linked, meaning you only need to open one account that you can use for both.
Here are the available deposit methods:
Be sure to check the available options in your state. For example, in New Jersey you can deposit at the casino cage at Caesars Atlantic City. In Michigan, this option doesn’t exist yet. If and when it does, you’ll be able to make your transactions at any of the five casinos operated by the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians.
You can use a variety of methods to fund a WynnBET Play+ prepaid card, including credit/debit cards, ACH and PayPal. The minimum deposit is $10. The maximum is contingent on your standing with WynnBET’s third-party payment provider, Global Payments.
Available methods to withdraw your funds include the following:
In some cases, in order to use a particular method to withdraw funds, you need to have deposited using the same method (e.g., PayPal). For most methods, processing takes up to 48 hours, although VIP Preferred withdrawals can take up to three to five business days.
There are multiple ways WynnBET players can get in touch with support to ask questions or get help resolving issues.
The online casino offers a fairly extensive and searchable FAQ section that works well as a first step. Live chat support is available 24/7, and when we tried it an agent responded immediately and was very helpful. Live chat is likely the best option for quick responses to most questions.
WynnBET also offers email support, along with phone support for much of the day and night (check the hours for your state’s site).
