The WynnBET Sportsbook at Encore Boston Harbor opened for in-person sports betting on Tuesday, with Boston sports legends in attendance.
Thirty-two lucky guests were chosen to place the first sport bets in the WynnBET Kiosk Room, while championship-winning athletes like Johnny Damon, Shawn Thornton and more placed the first bets at the WynnBET Sportsbook windows.
The WynnBET Sportsbook is sports viewing at its finest with more than 70 TVs, including a 10-foot high and 123-foot-long video wall just feet away from the sports betting ticket windows.
