Wynn Resorts and SG target Colorado and Indiana after New Jersey launch

Wynn Resorts has launched its Wynn Sports mobile app in New Jersey, which represents the first step of a multifaceted link-up with US gaming tech firm Scientific Games entered in April 2019.

Using Scientific Games’ OpenSports and OpenGaming product suites, the Nevada headquartered firm’s digital sports betting offering will also be expanded to Colorado and Indiana.

The operator went live with its Wynn Sports offering in the Garden State earlier this year, utilising the company’s sports betting and igaming platforms, a managed sports trading service and content aggregation system that is home to more than 2,000 digital games such as 88 Fortunes, Raging Rhino, Zeus and more.

In Colorado and Indiana, Scientific Games will provide Wynn Sports with the OpenSports solution, as well as launching its OpenPlatform player account management platform.

Jordan Levin, group CEO of digital at Scientific Games, commented: “We’re thrilled to be working alongside Wynn Resorts and their exceptional team as our partnership expands. We look forward to developing entertainment opportunities and delivering unmissable sports betting and igaming experiences for players in these states.”

Wynn Resorts expressed pleasure at a plethora of property re-openings across each of its operational markets, as the firm documented the impact of COVID enforced closures in its latest financial update last month.
