WynnBET, the digital gaming division of Wynn Resorts Ltd, has entered into a multi-year national sports betting partnership with NASCAR to create and promote engaging sports betting experiences for racing fans in the US.
Also, WynnBET is going to submit an application to become a legal gaming operator in the state of Virginia. Earlier this year, the Virginia state legislature passed a bill that will legalize sports betting and could grant up to 12 online sports betting licenses by the end of the year.
“We’re excited to partner with such a deeply experienced and innovative team to drive engagement and expand our sports betting offerings. Wynn is a trusted and iconic brand and our new relationship advances NASCAR’s position in the rapidly evolving gaming space while delivering fans with yet another live-in race engagement tool,” Tim Clark, senior vice president and chief digital officer of NASCAR, said.
“Like Wynn, NASCAR is an iconic brand. Together, Wynn Interactive and NASCAR will provide sports bettors in Virginia with one-of-a-kind experiences, both digitally and at NASCAR facilities in the Commonwealth,” Craig Billings, president of Wynn Resorts, said.
