WynnBet conditionally approved for online sports betting in Tennessee

| By Conor Mulheir
Wynn Resorts’ online sports betting brand, WynnBet, has been conditionally approved to offer online sports gaming in the state of Tennessee.

The Sports Wagering Committee of the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation’s board of directors approved WynnBet to operate its online sports betting app in the state, pending the fulfilment of statutory and regulatory requirements.

Tennessee will become the ninth state in which WynnBet has secured market access, in addition to New Jersey, Colorado and Michigan, where the app is already live, and Indiana, Nevada, Massachusetts, Ohio and Iowa, where the operator expects to launch this year.

The operator has also submitted an application for licensing in Virginia.

Sports betting in Tennessee launched in November last year, and the state became the first to allow mobile and online wagering without a land-based tethering requirement.
