Massachusetts Sports Betting Legalized: What You Need to Know About WynnBET

Legal sports betting is officially coming to Massachusetts.

Beacon Hill lawmakers successfully reached a compromise agreement on a bill to legalize sports betting at roughly 5 a.m. ET on Monday, Aug. 10. Governor Charlie Baker signed the approved bill on Wednesday, Aug. 10, as Massachusetts will become the 31st state to have legalized sports betting.

WynnBET posted the following message via social media on Wednesday:

"Sports betting is now legal in the state that knows a thing or two about winning! Our next step is applying to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to bring sports betting to the WynnBET Sportsbook at Encore Boston Harbor and online through the WynnBET app as soon as we can!"

WynnBET is currently live in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, and Virginia. But this company looks forward to adding Massachusetts to that list in the near future after it applies for licensing in the state.

In the meantime, here is a look at what Massachusetts players can expect from WynnBET:

Stay at Encore Boston Harbor

Massachusetts should already be familiar with WynnBET, with Encore Boston Harbor being one of the finest hotel resorts in Boston.

Boston is a city of champions, a place for the greats and known for its monumental moments in history. This city attracts millions of visitors every year to enjoy the rich heritage and distinct offerings, and we hope that leads them to Encore Boston Harbor as a result.

From lavishly appointed rooms and extraordinary restaurants for casual and fine dining to thrilling games, inventive spa treatments and chic shopping, every demand is anticipated and every need is met with impeccable service.

Catch the Action at WynnBET Sports Bar

Inside the luxurious Encore Boston Harbor, the WynnBET Sports Bar is the go-to place for the biggest sports fans in Boston.

This new sports bar is located on the casino floor and features more than 70 televisions, including a 10-foot high and 123-foot-long video wall, a collection of trophies, an installation of classical inspired sports accessories and a collage of historical images of local sports heroes and events, a full-service bar and cuisine.

Bet On Local Teams

There is no better way to celebrate legalized sports betting than by wagering on your local teams. For Massachusetts players, there is no shortage of options in that department.

The New England Patriots have won six Super Bowls, which is tied for the most all-time with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Boston Celtics have won 17 championships in the NBA, while the Boston Red Sox have won nine of the 13 World Series that they have played in. Don’t forget about the Boston Bruins, who have had plenty of success as a NHL franchise.

In the approved bill, Massachusetts does not allow betting on local collegiate teams, but you will be able to bet on out-of-state college sports.

Have Fun With Build Your Own Bet™ Parlays

One thing that WynnBET has to offer is Build Your Own Bet™. This is a player’s opportunity to create their own parlay within the same game, which can lead to a bigger payday if a player hits all legs of the ticket.

You can combine as many wagers as you like to BYOB! This can be done on your WynnBET app, and it can be a lot of fun creating all the different types of same-game parlays. Keep in mind that you should try to make your parlay correlated, based on how you think the game will play out, in order to maximize your chances of winning.
