Wynn Mobile Sports
Online Sports Book Review
The Wynn Sports betting app is available to iOS and Android users in Nevada. Wynn Sports is an independent sportsbook that has brick-and-mortar locations at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Las Vegas. Since the sportsbook is independent, all of the lines, odds, and point spreads are exclusive to the two brick-and-mortar locations and the app. There are more betting options at the brick-and-mortar than the app, but the app still takes the same high stakes bets as users would find in person. There is not currently a desktop or mobile browser version of Wynn Sports.

All winnings must be withdrawn at either Wynn Las Vegas or Encore Las Vegas by the person who created the account.
All Nevada online casino winnings must be reported to the IRS when you complete your annual federal tax return. This is done on Form 1044. You will tally up your total winnings and report them under the “other income” section. There is no state income tax in Nevada, so you will not have to report these winnings on your state tax return.
To get started on the site, new users must download the app and fill out the paperwork for Wynn Sports. They then have to go to a brick-and-mortar location with a valid ID and a Wynn Red Card to complete the signup process.
All deposits must be made with cash or a cashier’s check at either Wynn Las Vegas or Encore Las Vegas. There is a $100 minimum on all deposits.
There is no deposit bonus for Wynn Sports.
The positives for the Wynn Sports app cater mostly to high stakes bettors. This is different than the brick-and-mortar locations which cater more to casual bettors that want to enjoy everything else that a casino has to offer. Wynn Sports is famous for having fair odds on all of their bets. This can set a user’s mind at ease if they are accustomed to betting at other locations and don’t want to be cheated out of their money. They are also famous for taking large wagers. While the maximum limits are lower on the app, they will still take high stakes wagers that users would find at the brick-and-mortar locations. Another positive for experienced gamblers is that the app has a similar layout to most other sports betting apps in Nevada. It uses the same Miomni software which will be recognizable to most of the other apps. The interface is very simple to use and makes placing wagers easy. Despite having an otherwise limited selection of bets, Wynn Sports is one of the few Nevada sportsbooks that offer wagering on horse and dog races. This is a major draw for fans of those sports that do not want to go to a brick-and-mortar or a track to place their wagers.
The biggest thing currently affecting Wynn Sports is its lack of betting options. Even though it provides wagering options on horse and dog races, it is limited to just the major North American sports on the rest of the app. While for some people this will be no problem, for others that want to place bets on European sports, this can be very frustrating. The site, also, does not offer in-game, live betting, which is one of the most popular forms of betting in the country. The minimum wager for a bet on Wynn Sports is $5. Since this is an app that caters to high stakes bettors, this is not a surprise, but it is a higher minimum than other Nevada apps that have a minimum wager of $2. Also, users are only able to deposit and withdraw their funds at a brick-and-mortar sportsbook. With only two locations, and both in Las Vegas, this is not convenient for users that live in other parts of Nevada.
How To Place A Bet
In order to place a bet, the bettor must determine what they want to gamble on. If the bettor decides to place a bet on the Colorado Rockies moneyline against the Kansas City Royals, they simply have to click the moneyline option for that game. Once clicked, the bet will appear on the betslip on the bottom of the page. The betslip can hold multiple bets, so a player can choose up to 10 different betting options and place money on them individually or in a parlay, round robin, or teaser bet. Once the bets are placed, the betslip is cleared and the player can place more wagers if they choose to.
How to Deposit and Withdraw
The first step for new users of the Wynn Sports app will be to sign up for an account. The app can be downloaded anywhere, but the signup process must take place in person. New users must be 21 years old and have a valid ID. They are also required to have an active Wynn Red Card account. Users can sign up for this at Wynn Las Vegas, Encore Las Vegas, or online. After downloading the app and signing up for a Wynn Red Card account, users must fill out the necessary paperwork to create an account. This can be done at the casino or printed and filled out at home to be brought to the casino.
To fund the account, all deposits must be made at one of the Wynn Sports brick-and-mortar locations. The minimum for all deposits is $100. Funds must also be withdrawn at a Wynn Sports brick-and-mortar. There is no money exchange done on the app. There are currently no loyalty rewards or promotion bonuses listed on the app.
Wynn Sports tends to cater to their loyal customer base and high stakes bettors. There is not a lot of draw for casual sports gamblers to download this app. While it does give users a chance to bet on dog and horse races while being assured of fair odds, it is also inconvenient for those that would like to bet on other sports or withdraw their money from home. Overall, this app was designed for people that already attend Wynn sportsbooks and want to place high stakes wagers at home.
