WynnBet ceases operations in Massachusetts

The Wynn Interactive division of Wynn Resorts has ceased operations of its WynnBet online gambling brand in the state of Massachusetts.

Players in Massachusetts have 30 days from yesterday (12 February) to withdraw any funds from their WynnBet account.

Wynn Resorts, however, will continue to operate retail sports betting in the state. Players can continue to wager at the land-based sportsbook and kiosks inside its Encore Boston Harbor casino.

Wynn talks up “substantial” UAE growth potential as Q2 revenue rises

Wynn Resorts CEO Craig Billings said the operator is edging closer to securing a licence for its new integrated resort in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), while the business posted a 75.8% rise in Q2 revenue to $1.60bn (£1.26bn/€2.46bn).

The business first announced plans to open Wynn Al Marjan Island in early 2022. The Wynn Resorts facility will be located on the man-made Al Marjan Island in the Emirate of Ras Al-Khaimah and will cost approximately $3.90bn.

The venue is not due to open until early 2027 but Wynn is already busy making plans for the casino. Construction partners were appointed in March, initial designs were revealed shortly after and Thomas Schoen was recently named project president.

“We have everything we need to operate gaming in Al Marjan”

In addition, the operator is pushing to secure early approval ahead of the planned opening. Speaking on its earnings call, he said Wynn expects to re..
