Wynn Las Vegas will officially launch a new mobile sports betting app today. The app was designed in partnership with technology company Miomni, and will be active for March Madness, the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
The app will feature various types of wagers including straight bets, parlays and future books. The minimum first deposit will be $100, the minimum reload deposit $100 and the minimum bet $5.
Future versions of the app are expected to include in-game live betting and pari-mutual wagering,
Like all Nevada sports betting apps, it will use geo-location technology to limit wagers to players physically located in the state. And bettors can only set up an account by visiting the Wynn Race & Sports Book with valid government-issued photo ID.
Johnny Avello, director of race and sports operations at Wynn Las Vegas, said: “This is an exciting development we’ve been working on for quite some time and are pleased to now be able to offer this amenity to our guests.
“Whether dining in our restaurants, lounging by the pools or in your guest room, the Wynn Mobile Sports allows guest to enjoy the first-rate, luxury experience of our Race & Sportsbook in the palm of their hand.”
Wynn joins an increasing number of properties with apps in Nevada, where mobile sports betting has gained traction since the first app was introduced to the state in 2010.
In fact, mobile sports betting accounted for 29 percent of the Silver State’s handle in 2015, according to Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, a research firm that tracks the gaming equipment, technology and interactive gaming sectors.
The research also predicted that more than half of the total handle could come from mobile apps by 2020.
