Powering in-play betting
Genius Sports Group has announced that is now an official multi-state data partner of WynnBET. The sports data and technology company tweeted out details about the new deal on Tuesday:
WynnBET, the Wynn Resorts-owned online betting brand, will be getting access to official live data through Genius Sports’ partnerships with many notable sporting organizations. Specifically, the LiveTrading and LiveData offerings from Genius Sports will be driving the in-play betting on the WynnBET sportsbooks in Michigan, Colorado, and New Jersey. While other launches are in the works, WynnBET is not currently live in any other states.
One of the key partnerships that Genius Sports has in place is with NASCAR. This relationship will allow WynnBET to offer over 15 different in-race betting markets to its users during the course of the NASCAR season.

The operator has been agreeing to a number of partnership deals in recent times. In October 2020, WynnBET became an official betting partner of NASCAR. It also inked an agreement to be the official online sportsbook for Richmond Raceway and Martinsville Speedway in Virginia, pending regulatory approval. To help with its expansion plans in Tennessee, WynnBET has partnered with the Memphis Grizzlies NBA team in a multi-year deal.
