Disclaimer: WynnBet is not yet live in Indiana. This review is speculative based on the product in other states and will update once it launches here.
WynnBET Sportsbook will launch in Indiana in early 2021, giving Hoosiers another premier online sports betting option. WynnBET’s app lets users make bets from wherever they are in Indiana, and new customers can receive a risk-free bet for up to $500 when they join.
This review covers the bet types and sports you can bet on at WynnBET, along with how to register and make your first deposit, and since the goal is to win money we go over how you can withdraw any future winnings. Try out WynnBET Sportsbook with a $500 risk-free first bet today.
WynnBET is offering new users a $500 risk-free initial bet. To claim it, use one of the links here to head to the sportsbook and sign up for an account. Note that the restrictions on the offer are less than what you’ll see at many other online Indiana sportsbooks. Here’s the breakdown:
Overall this is a great welcome bonus offer. Among its positives are that your risk-free wager can be a parlay, and the odds requirements are such that many users might not even realize they exist. The only thing that could make the offer better was if Wynn allowed you to divide the bet credit instead of having to use it all at once.

Before launching in Indiana, WynnBET was operational in Michigan, New Jersey and Colorado, which gives us a good idea of the type of promotions we can expect to see from the sportsbook going forward.
The bad news is that, so far, WynnBET has not been big in terms of promotional offers, other than the risk-free bet for new users.
One promotion WynnBET has consistently had at other state sportsbooks is its spin-the-wheel offer. The way it works is simple: Users get chips when they lose sports bets. You can use these chips to spin the Wynn rewards wheel for an opportunity to win odds boosts, multi-bet insurance, or even in-person prizes like complimentary stays at Wynn Resorts.
So far, WynnBET has not offered daily odds boosts. Instead, it has presented a different take on odds boosts. For instance, prior to Super Bowl LV, it created single-game parlay odds boosts, one with the Kansas City Chiefs winning and the other with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers winning.
The twist was, instead of allowing all WynnBET players the chance to get the boost, only the first 50 did so. The odds boost was better than it would have been if the sportsbook had allowed all users the chance to get in on the action, but on the flip side, if you didn’t happen to see it in time, you would have been out of luck.
Yes. WynnBET Sportsbook received its sports wagering license in 2021 from the Indiana Gaming Commission, which is responsible for regulating and administering sports betting and paid fantasy sports in the Hoosier State. Sports betting went live in Indiana in September 2019, and the first online sportsbooks launched the next month.
To legally wager on sports, you must be located within state lines and be 21 or older. To track your location, sportsbooks require that you have geolocation enabled on the device you are using to bet. As long as the geolocation software can place you in Indiana, you will be good to bet; otherwise it’ll be a no go. To help confirm your age, you will need to enter the last four digits of your Social Security number when you register.
To sign up at WynnBET, you’ll start by downloading the app for either Android or iOS. Next, simply open it up, select “Register” and then enter the following info:
After that, you need to confirm that everything you submitted is accurate, that you are 21 or older, and that you’ve read the terms and conditions. Once you submit the application, you’ll be good to go.
As of right now, WynnBET Indiana does not have a website that bettors can use to manage their accounts and place wagers. While that’s not ideal, we don’t think it’s that big of a problem, since most of us are never more than a few feet away from our smartphones.
Before you start using WynnBET’s app, you have to get it on your phone or tablet. To do so, choose the link to download the appropriate app for your device from WynnBET’s website. The app takes only a few seconds to download and install.
In our opinion, some sportsbook apps can get bogged down because they have too much content. After all, even the biggest phone screens still are pretty small, and if you try to cram a lot of stuff onto them, it can become overwhelming very quickly.
Fortunately, the WynnBET app doesn’t fall into this trap. Users will find WynnBET to be very clean and clutter-free. While part of the home screen is taken up with Wynn promos, the majority of the app is all about sports betting.
Users can find the games they want to bet on by utilizing the search bar, or they can select the type of sport they’re interested in from a list near the top of the screen. If you’re looking for live games, there are two “Live now” headers on the homepage that will take you there.
When it comes to modifying your account, you can do so by selecting the person icon or WynnBET emblem at the top left. Once you open the account screen, you’ll see tabs for making deposits and withdrawals, changing your settings, contacting customer support and viewing all your previous or ongoing bets.
When it comes to placing wagers, WynnBET’s app is among the best in the industry. Just follow these steps:
Overall, we’re very pleased with Wynn’s sportsbook app for Indiana. Moving from page to page is fast, everything is labeled well, and WynnBET has one of the better betting slips we’ve used.
Wynn is one of the largest gambling companies in the world, so it makes sense that its sportsbook app would have a lot of quality features. Here are our three favorites:
Here are some things WynnBET could do to further improve its sportsbook app in Indiana:
If you’re new to sports betting, this section is for you. It goes over the various sports wagers you’ll be able to choose from at WynnBET.
WynnBET Indiana will have available bets on the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB, golf, tennis, UFC, boxing, NASCAR, NCAA football and basketball, just to name the major US sports. Additionally, you can wager on international soccer leagues such as the World Cup, English Premier League, Champions League, Spain’s La Liga and Germany’s Bundesliga.
Beyond that, though, WynnBET actually has fewer sports to wager on than some other sportsbooks, but the sports you’re missing out on are things like rugby and cricket. If those sports aren’t important to you, you’re not missing out on the action at WynnBET.
Indiana is a pretty spectacular state for sports, and you can wager on just about all of our local teams using the WynnBET mobile betting app. Let’s take a look at all of those squads.
WynnBET also has plenty of futures odds that you can wager on throughout the year. To find the current offerings, all you need to do is select the sports you want to wager on and then select the futures tab. As you scroll down, all the available markets will display.
You’ll be able to bet on the eventual Stanley Cup, Super Bowl, NBA Finals or World Series champions at just about any time throughout the year. WynnBET doesn’t have as many player futures available right now, but that’s something else it could add more of going forward.
While WynnBET does not have a plethora of ways to deposit or cash out, the methods that do exist should be enough for the majority of users. Here are the ways you can deposit:
And for withdrawals, you can choose from among the following:
It’s also reasonable to expect that if WynnBET were to add a retail sportsbook location in Indiana, players would be able to make deposits and withdrawals in person at that venue.
If you experience any problems, you can contact WynnBET three different ways.
You can have a live chat by using the WynnBET app, you can email [email protected] or call 844-745-0948. The live chat is staffed around the clock, while the phone line is available from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET.
As is the case with most sportsbook apps, WynnBET also has a help page where you can find answers to many questions.
WynnBET would not have received a sports betting license in the Hoosier State if responsible gambling was not something it took seriously.
In fact, you might be surprised by the amount of control you have over your account. You can limit the time you spend on the app, the amount of money you deposit, and the amount of money you can spend. If you want to stop betting completely, you can exclude yourself from the app, and since accounts are tied to your Social Security number, rejoining won’t be an option.
WynnBET does not have a retail sportsbook in Indiana at this time. But if it announces any plans for a retail sportsbook, we’ll let you know.
Not right now it’s not. Online sports betting went live in the Hoosier State in late 2019, and it wasn’t until early 2021 that WynnBET launched, so it’s simply a little behind the rest.
Mobile sports betting leaders like DraftKings, BetMGM, PointsBet and FanDuel are out in front. There is no reason Wynn can’t catch up, through; it just needs to make sure to offer competitive betting odds and quality promotions to help attract more users.
Absolutely. We wouldn’t recommend it otherwise. WynnBET was licensed by the Indiana Gaming Commission, which is in charge of sports betting in the Hoosier State. If you experience any problems with WynnBET or any other sportsbook in the state, you can contact the IGC by calling 317-233-0046 or emailing [email protected]
You must be 21 or older to legally bet on sports in Indiana. On top of that, you have to be in Indiana when you place your bets. When you bet online, you must have geolocation technology activated on your phone or tablet. If the software is unable to place you in the Hoosier State, you won’t be able to bet.
Definitely. While some states have laws prohibiting betting on in-state college teams, Indiana is not one of them. The only rule that could apply is that competitors must be at least 18 years old in order to bet on them.
As of right now, you do. WynnBET currently is accessible only via its app. The app is great, and you can download it and be ready to start betting in a matter of minutes.
Both apps offer betting markets for all the major US pro and college sports and for top international competitions, too. The biggest differences right now are that FanDuel offers single-game parlays for the NBA, NFL and MLB, while WynnBET does not, and FanDuel also tends to offer more promotions.
Not really. While you can log in to the app and make deposits or withdrawals from outside of the state, that’s all you can do. And while WynnBET is live in New Jersey, Colorado and Michigan and will be launching soon in Virginia, you’ll need separate apps in each state.
