WynnBET Sportsbook NJ Promo Code & Review
Backed by casino giant Wynn Resorts, WynnBET launched its online sportsbook brand in New Jersey in November 2020, in a partnership with Caesars.
The company behind WynnBET has nearly two decades of experience in legal sports betting and regulated gambling, so we expect the site’s nascent platform to get better and better as it refines its product. Let’s take a look at what WynnBET NJ has to offer.
WynnBET Sportsbook NJ Bonus Offer – January 2021
In NJ, new users can expect a WynnBET welcome offer to the tune of a $500 Risk-Free Bet which will be returned to you in the form of bet credits. To take advantage, just click any of the promotional links on this page or use any promo code that appears in the table below.

How it works
The WynnBET welcome offer is what’s called a “risk-free” bet, but it’s not exactly risk-free — let us explain. Essentially, to get the bonus, make your first qualifying deposit ($20-$500) and place your first wager. It’s best to make a wager that matches the amount of that first qualifying deposit in order to utilize the full potential of the bonus. The odds on this wager cannot be lower than -150 or higher than +10,000.
Once you’ve placed that first qualifying wager on a single bet or “unboosted parlay”, sit back and await the results. If it’s a winner, good news. If it’s a loser, it’s also good news, because the bet amount (up to $500) will bounce back to your account in the form of a free bet.
That free bet can be used towards the single wager or unboosted parlay of your choice, essentially giving you a do-over. However, if that second free bet loses, it’s gone. This is why we take the phrase “risk-free” with a grain of salt; there’s still risk, it’s just not as immediate.
Ultimately, though, this is a great welcome offer for new users on WynnBET. Especially of note is the fact that this welcome offer doesn’t have a ton of hidden surprises in it, and the fine print is relatively straightforward. For example, some operators provide deposit matches as a welcome offer, matching the user’s first deposit up to a certain amount. However, these deposit match welcome offers often have some pretty extravagant wagering requirements, often requiring users to wager up to a few thousand dollars in their own money before netting the bonus. WynnBET’s welcome offer is straightforward — just bet, and if you lose, get a free bet of the same amount up to $500.
WynnBET offers a well-rounded mobile experience that is perhaps best suited for newer bettors. When we’re looking at any online sportsbook, it’s important to find that the features are complex enough to keep intermediate/expert bettors engaged without overwhelming newbies. In addition, the format through which this information is presented can make or break a sports betting app, so it’s crucial to have a modern, well organized interface. Let’s get into the details of the app, as there is no browser platform available at the moment (more on that later).
WynnBET NJ Mobile app
Functionally speaking, the WynnBET app performs well across multiple platforms and screens, both on data connections and wireless. The app is responsive, displays information promptly, and doesn’t suffer from too many crashes or dropped bets. If you do have any issues with dropped bets, the customer support team will be happy to address your concerns. We’ll detail the customer support with WynnBET later on in this article.
With regards to aesthetics, the interface design feels a bit rushed. Organizationally, the app leaves a bit to be desired, particularly when assembling your betslips. We found that, at times, it took multiple taps just to find the sport we wanted, and then a few more minutes of scrolling through bets before finding the one that suited our needs. With other sportsbook apps, the lines are displayed with a bit more clarity.
However, these small considerations won’t hinder the most casual bettor from having a good experience using the WynnBET app. We mentioned that this app is perhaps best suited for newer bettors, and that’s because of the simplicity of the interface. Straights and popular markets are front-facing on the app, while lesser known markets and more complex bets are either hard to find or not present at all. If you’re a newer bettor looking for a no-nonsense betting experience that doesn’t throw too many figures at you, WynnBET is a good choice.
An important note when using any real-money online wagering apps: you must be physically located in the state displayed on the app when wagering. In order to verify this, all real-money wagering done through the WynnBET app must be done while location services on the app are enabled. This will allow the proper authorities and the operator to ensure that betting is done legally and safely.
At the moment, there’s no web-based version of the WynnBET NJ service. This is a bit disappointing, as having a browser version of a popular sportsbook is a great way to bring in the less mobile-savvy customers. However, since over 50% of internet users are using their mobile devices to browse the web, it’s not surprising that an operator would opt to focus on this segment of the sports betting market. We hope to see WynnBET add a dedicated browser version of their sportsbook for users soon.
Differences between WynnBET iOS and Android
There are a few important things to note when downloading and using the WynnBET app. Primarily, it’s key that Android users understand how to download and install these apps. iOS users can simply search WynnBET on the app store and install with a few taps, but Android users will have to download the APK file by visiting the WynnBET website on their mobile device and tapping “Download for Android”.
Once you’ve done that, your device will warn you that APK files can harm your computer. Go ahead and download, then hit “Install” when prompted. Your Android device will again prompt you to “allow installations from unknown sources” — go ahead and do that too. All of these apps are regulated by the NJ Department of Gaming Enforcement, so they’re safe.
Deposits and Withdrawals
There are a decent number of banking options available with WynnBET, detailed below. We’d like to see a few more payment and withdrawal methods added to the WynnBET service, but as their focus right now is on expansion of their existing product, we’re likely going to have to wait. Many sportsbooks tend to expand their existing apps once they’ve made their mark in a few states, so we’re optimistic that more banking options will be added as Wynn expands.
Please keep in mind that the minimum deposit is $20.
- Credit/Debit cards
- VIP Preferred
- Play+ Card
- Deposit in-person at the casino cage, Caesars Atlantic City
Withdrawal methods available on WynnBET
- Play+ Card
- Physical check
- Cash at cage, Caesars Atlantic City
A note about the Play+ card: this prepaid, internationally accepted card is a good intermediary. WynnBET does not offer payment options from providers like Discover or PayPal, but Play+ does in most cases. Additionally, the Play+ card works like a debit card, so it’s a good option for users looking for more security from the brand. It’s likely that Wynn will offer more direct providers in future, but for now, the Play+ card is a secure choice for bettors looking to use third-party processors.
As it seems to cater to beginner and intermediate bettors, WynnBET doesn’t display more complex bet types like props and teasers right on the main page. Instead, you’ll have to do a little tinkering with lines and playing with the bet slip before you can put together teasers or round robins.
When you are ready to bet, the following bet types will be available to you:
- Totals (over/under)
- Moneyline (straights)
- In-play betting (live betting)
- Parlays (including teasers, round robins, and boosted parlays
- Futures (outright winner, etc.)
One caveat we noted was that the availability of prop bets paled in comparison to other sportsbooks like FanDuel and DraftKings. Prop bets, like first to score, team MVP, or winner of the coin toss/jump ball were pretty lacking on WynnBET. It seems like NFL games have the widest availability of prop bets, while MMA bets didn’t even offer “method of victory” props. We’d like to see an expansion of the available prop bets, though there are a few available on more popular events and on the Live Betting tab.
Betting Lines at WynnBET NJ
We took a look at competitor’s odds and are happy to report that WynnBET and its oddsmakers are doing a good job of keeping WynnBET in step with the competition– they weren’t blowing them out of the water, but given the circumstances, we found the set odds to be fair. It’s important to note that odds are variable, but the following example gives you an idea of how WynnBET’s odds fare against others:
Moneyline odds on several sites: Washington vs. Dallas
- FanDuel offers odds of -148 Dallas to +126 Washington. A $100 wager on Washington would yield $126.
- DraftKings gives Dallas -148 to Washington’s +130. A $100 wager on Washington nets you $130.
- WynnBET gives Dallas -150 to Washington’s +130. A $100 wager on Washington nets you $130.
As you can tell from the above example, WynnBET has fine odds. The operator tends to pay out on underdogs slightly better or on pace with its competitors, while falling behind a few points when it comes to betting on the favorite. Still, WynnBET offers decent odds without the backing of a nationally-recognized DFS/sports betting chain behind them, so we don’t see much of an issue here.
While it’s a fine offering for a modern US sportsbook, fans of international sports and niche markets might be a little bit disappointed in the list of available markets and leagues with WynnBET, for now at least. Here’s a complete list:
- Pro and College Basketball
- Pro and College Football
- Ice Hockey
- Motor Racing
As you can see, most of the popular US sports are represented, along with several international soccer leagues and Formula 1 racing. However, there is a surprisingly active market in the US for other sports, such as darts, cycling, or rugby — all of which are sadly missing from WynnBET. We’re hoping that as WynnBET gets its footing, it is able to expand its betting markets further.
An important note for bettors in New Jersey: state law prohibits making bets on college teams from NJ or college sporting events based in NJ. Several states have certain restrictions regarding NCAA bets, so you won’t be able to wager on Seton Hall, Rutgers, or any local favorites.
WynnBET NJ Promotions
Even though it’s just getting started in New Jersey, we have to give WynnBET a bit of a hard time here, simply because it’s one of the only sportsbooks we’ve seen that seemingly offers only one promotion. Users can net a “risk-free” bet up to $500 when they sign up for a WynnBET account, which we’ve gone into above. There are very few additional promotions to mention, which is disappointing to say the least. Nearly every modern sportsbook on the market offers event-specific free bets, a referral program, or loyalty points; WynnBET offers none of the above.
The one extra that users of WynnBET can get access to are boosted parlays, which are boosts for multi-leg bets on certain events throughout the year. Put together your parlay during the “boost” event and look forward to a bit of an extra edge on your payout if you win. Unfortunately, these only come around every once in a while, and seem to be reserved for intermediate and experienced bettors placing complex bets.
To be fair, WynnBET has a “spin-the-wheel” promotion that enables players to get access to odds boosts, bet insurance and other bonuses, but since you have to spend chips to spin the wheel, it feels less like a promotion and more like another gamble. We’re hoping that Wynn offers some promotions that are tied to events and contests, like extra boosts on singles bets or a refer-a-friend program for a bit of extra betting credit.
WynnBET Loyalty Program in NJ
WynnBET doesn’t have a loyalty program to pair with their online sportsbook just yet. If you’re curious, loyalty programs enable users to earn points and tier-based rewards simply by wagering with an operator. Many loyalty programs offer cashback on wagers, in addition to VIP rewards like complementary restaurant visits and hotel stays, VIP-only promotions, and more.
Wynn’s physical casino resort in Las Vegas does have a rewards program, called the Wynn Red Card. At the moment, it doesn’t pair with any of Wynn’s online offerings. However, we’re optimistic that WynnBET will be able to offer a rewards program for users of the online sportsbook app, because it’s expected that Wynn Las Vegas’s online sportsbook will be absorbed under the WynnBET brand. When this happens, we expect the offering of available promotions and rewards to be filled out with even more bonuses for new and existing customers.
When you’re stumped or you have a concern about your account, WynnBET offers a good selection of customer support options to its users. If your concern is relatively simple, or if you’d like some education on how to place a bet or make a deposit, head over to the FAQ section. The FAQ section is a keyword-based system, allowing users to narrow down their question through a series of general categories or by searching.
While the support section can seem a bit overwhelming to navigate, the wealth of information available within can be super helpful to most users. If you need beginner information on how to place bets in the first place, however, WynnBET’s FAQ section doesn’t offer a good resource for new bettors. The FAQ section is perhaps best used to get some clarity on requirements for deposits, withdrawals, wagering, or installing the apps. If you’ve got a more detailed concern regarding your account, you’re better off reaching out to a live person for support.
WynnBET offers live chat, email, and phone options to contact customer support. While live chat operators often don’t have the ability to make major changes to your account, it’s great to see that Wynn is offering its users a way to get answers in real-time 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you’re dealing with a more complex issue and can wait a business day or two, try reaching out to Wynn’s customer support through email. You can also call them during open hours.
More about WynnBET
WynnBet’s partnership with Full House Resorts bodes well for WynnBET expanding to other states, namely states where Full House owns casino properties. These states include Mississippi, Indiana, Nevada, and Colorado, so bettors in those states may well be able to look forward to a WynnBET platform in their areas soon. We’re hoping to see a few more features added as Wynn rolls out to other states– a livestreaming option and more live bets would be a nice touch, given that the casino section offers a sizeable selection of live dealer games.
That’s right, WynnBET offers an additional casino section, which is just as thought-out and well-rounded as the sports betting platform, if not more so. It’s a nice addition made especially convenient since the casino games are only one swipe away once you’ve logged in to your WynnBET sportsbook account.
