WynnBet, the Wynn Interactive online casino and sports betting app, has unveiled Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson, Tim Howard and Nick Mangold as brand ambassadors.
Through the partnerships, the trio of former professional sports stars will appear in WynnBet advertising, attend in-person events and promote the app, in addition to interacting as guests at the Blue Wire Podcast Studio at Wynn Las Vegas. WynnBet will also run several in-app promotions and odds boosts tailored to the ambassadors’ interests and personalities.
Johnson played 11 professional football seasons with Cincinnati and New England, and also recently participated in an exhibition boxing match in June. WynnBet says that it will support his future charitable endeavors in his hometown of Miami.
“You know I love my fans, and Wynn is known for focusing on providing the best guest experience, which is why WynnBet is a perfect partner,” Johnson said.
“This is all about connecting directly with sports betting fans to provide great entertainment and conversation through social media and in-person events.”
Former Manchester United and Everton goalkeeper Howard, who also plied his tried at several Major League Soccer franchises, currently serves as a TV analyst.
“I’m excited to join the WynnBet team, one of the most recognised names in sports and entertainment,” Howard noted.
“With MLS continually growing in popularity, I look forward to sharing my game previews and parlay picks with WynnBET customers.”
Mangold was a seven-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman during his 11-year professional football career with the New York Jets, and has plans to expand his media footprint, while supporting his former team, through the partnership.
“I’ve played football for almost my entire life, and never realised how entertaining it is to bet on the sport and interact with other fans about betting,” Mangold added.
“Now that I’m retired, I’ve enjoyed learning the role that betting and social interaction plays in enhancing my enjoyment of the game. The WynnBet app makes that easy for me in my current home state of New Jersey.
“I’m excited to partner with WynnBET to let fans know what an entertaining and user-friendly experience the app provides.”
