With Kentucky’s sports betting launch on the horizon, you may be wondering what sportsbooks will be launching when the state first starts accepting in-person wagers on September 7, 2023.

Unfortunately, WynnBET will not be among the first operators to launch in the state, but we believe it will only be a matter of time before the bookmaker arrives in KY. In this review, we’ll discuss what bettors can expect once WynnBET obtains a license in Kentucky and begins operating in the state.

No, WynnBET Sportsbook is not legal in Kentucky. WynnBET has not yet obtained an operating license from the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission, so the bookmaker will have to wait a bit longer before accepting KY sports bets. However, WynnBET is currently operating in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

When will WynnBET have a promo in KY?

WynnBET will have a promo in KY after it obtains a gambling operator license from the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission. Unfortunately, it did not have such licensure in time for Kentucky’s sports betting launch in September 2023.

Signing up for WynnBET in Kentucky and claiming the promo

When WynnBET arrives in Kentucky, signing up with the sportsbook and claiming the promo will be a quick and painless process. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

  1. Use our link when available to make sure you’re getting the best possible bonus.
  2. From the WynnBET home page or in the app, click either “Register” or “Play Now” to access the registration form.
  3. Enter your email address, along with a username and the password you intend to use, then click “Next Step.”
  4. On the next page, you’ll be asked to provide your personal information, including your legal first and last name, street address, date of birth, and the last four digits of your Social Security number. WynnBET will encrypt this information and keep it secure at all times. This information will be used to verify your identity and eligibility.
  5. Next, check two boxes – one will be to verify that the information you’re submitting is correct and the second is to agree to the terms of service.
  6. Finally, click “Complete Registration,” make your first deposit with the method of your choice, and start playing.

Bonuses that could come to WynnBET Sportsbook KY

WynnBET Sportsbook will be sure to offer its KY players generous bonuses ahead of the launch and continue the promotions thereafter. Here are some of the bonuses that could come to WynnBET in Kentucky.

  • Welcome bonuses: WynnBET will always have a welcome bonus available to new players. You’ll often see one of the bonuses below listed as part of the signup promotion, and they’ll frequently vary based on which sports are in season.
  • Bonus bets: Bonus bets are bet credits that are set at an amount that has been predetermined by the sportsbook. Oftentimes, they come at a match of an existing wager, though they can sometimes be broken up into $5, $10, or $25 increments.
  • Second chance bets: If your first wager with WynnBET doesn’t win, the bookmaker may offer you bet credit in the amount of that initial stake. That credit would be a second chance bet.
  • Deposit matches: This type of bonus is a bit rare, but it can be quite lucrative when WynnBET offers it. Just as it sounds, WynnBET would match your deposit in bet credit, often at a dollar-for-dollar rate.

Important terms and conditions for bonuses WynnBET could offer

Based on what we’ve seen for promotions in other states, these are some of the important terms and conditions for bonuses WynnBET may have on its signup offers.

  • Only new players aged 18 or older are eligible.
  • You must be physically located within a state where WynnBET is legal and licensed to place a bet.
  • If no odds requirements are specified, the odds requirement is -200 or greater for all qualifying wagers.
  • The initial bet must settle within 30 days of account creation.
  • Bonus credits are awarded regardless of the outcome of the initial wager.
  • New players’ first deposit must be made within three days of opening their account.
  • WynnBET may modify or cancel the welcome bonus at any time, with or without notice.

What kinds of wagers will there be on WynnBET Sportsbook?

WynnBET Sportsbook will offer a wide range of betting types to appeal to hardcore and casual gamblers alike. These are some of the more popular kinds of wagers you’ll be able to find.

  • Moneyline bets: Moneyline bets are the most straightforward kind of wager. They simply involve picking the winner of a sporting event. The margin of victory does not matter, just who is on top when things go final.
  • Spread bets: Betting on the spread involves wagering on the margin of victory. For example, WynnBET may list the University of Kentucky as a 4.5-point favorite against Louisville. A bet on the Wildcats would only win if Kentucky wins by 5 or more. Conversely, a wager on the Cardinals would pay out if Louisville lost by four points or fewer, or if Louisville won outright.
  • Over/Under bets: Unlike betting on a winner, over/under bets involve wagering on the combined point total between the two teams and whether they will score over or under the total WynnBET lists.
  • Prop bets: Prop bets can be a fun way to wager on outcomes that won’t necessarily impact the final score. These can include things like a player's total of points+rebounds+assists, a certain player hitting a home run, or the number of saves a goalie makes.

The WynnBET betting app in Kentucky

The WynnBET betting app covers multiple states, so Kentucky bettors won’t have to look for a state-specific version. However, you’ll see a few different versions in the app stores as you browse. This is because WynnBET used to use a state-specific model for its app platforms, so those are still active for the time being. You can download the app before the sportsbook launches in Kentucky, but note that signing up for an account may prevent you from being able to claim a welcome bonus when the bookie goes live in KY.

How to download the WynnBET app on iOS

Downloading the WynnBET app on iOS won’t take long at all, as long as you’ve got a steady internet connection. Here’s how to download the KY betting app.

  1. Open the App Store on your iOS device and log in with your Apple ID and password.
  2. Search “WynnBET Casino & Sportsbook.” While online casino play isn’t legal in Kentucky, the app covers both options, so you’ll be ahead of the game if the legislature includes casino gaming in a future bill.
  3. Press “Get” then “Install.”

After that, you’ll be able to access your account and start wagering, or create a new WynnBET account if needed.

How to download the WynnBET app on Android

If you’ve got an Android device and a reliable internet connection, you’ll be able to download the WynnBET app in seconds. Here’s how to add the app.

  1. Open the Google Play Store on your Android Device.
  2. Search “WynnBET Casino & Sportsbook.” Once again, even though casino gaming isn’t legal in Kentucky, the app extends to both options.
  3. Press “Install” and let the download run.

Once the installation is complete, you’ll be able to create a new WynnBET account within the app or log into your existing account with your username and password.

WynnBET KY future payment options

While the sportsbook isn’t yet legal in Kentucky, we can anticipate the future payment options WynnBET KY will have based on what is available in other states where the bookie is already operating.

Deposit

  • Credit/debit card: One of the easiest ways to deposit funds into your account is with a credit or debit card. WynnBET accepts Visa and Mastercard but doesn’t take Discover or AMEX cards.
  • PayPal: PayPal is the most common e-wallet accepted at sportsbooks given its lengthy history compared to others like Apple Pay and Venmo. You can also use PayPal to withdraw your winnings, in many cases accessing your funds the same day you submit a withdrawal request.
  • Online banking: Linking your bank account to your WynnBET account may take a little time to get set up, but once it’s connected, you can move funds easily and quickly. You also won’t have to fuss around with multiple logins and passwords with this method.

Withdrawal

  • Paper check: WynnBET will send you a paper check through USPS if you request your payout this way. The check will be sent to the address you used when signing up for your account and they will not send it to a P.O. Box. Usually, this takes 7-10 business days but it has been quicker at times.
  • Play+ prepaid card: Using a prepaid card can be a great way to set deposit limits and practice responsible gambling. When using a Play+ card to withdraw money, you’ll be able to get cash at an ATM or hold the funds on the card for later use.
