Wynn and Encore Sportsbook Introduction
With the industry seeing quite a bit of consolidation over the last decade, there are only a few independent operators still standing in Las Vegas. One of those operators is the Wynn, whose extravagant sportsbook provides one of the best sports viewing experiences you can find on the Strip. It also operates the sportsbook at Encore, its sister property.
Their recent renovation would lead you to believe the company is highly invested in the success of the department, but the limited betting menu, higher hold percentages, and low limits seem to imply otherwise. Just a few years after gaining favorable publicity for offering Kentucky Derby futures and opening college football lines first, the sportsbook product appears to be an afterthought for casino management.
The Wynn has wagering on professional football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, tennis, golf, MMA, UFC, NASCAR, along with college football, basketball, and baseball. They offer prop bets on selected events and will offer live wagering during commercial breaks on marquee events.
As an independent book operating with a smaller staff, the menu here is not as large as you will see at most books. Wynn is typically one of the last operators to open its lines on a daily basis. It has also become notorious for some of the highest hold percentages in town on their future markets.
Currently there are no contests being run at the Wynn.
Another constraint for a smaller operation like the Wynn is limits. House players who are staying at the casino are likely to receive generous limits, but for advantage players and customers betting on the app, the limits are among the lowest in town. This, coupled with limited overnight markets and a late opening on daily lines, leaves Wynn lagging behind most of its competition.
Wynn currently uses Stadium Technology and Miomni Gaming to run its app. They are one of the last operators in Las Vegas to use the Miomni platform, which is more functional and user-friendly than most. You can sign up at the sportsbook, where you must fill out a W9 and will need a valid driver’s license and player’s card from the casino.
Currently there are no alternative ways to fund your account through the app. The only funding method is cash at the counter. They are not offering any sign-up bonuses for new mobile accounts.
A 2017 renovation turned the Wynn into a premiere location on the Strip, with a beautiful new TV display and upgraded seating area. Horse racing is a major priority in the book. Most of its TVs and seating are dedicated to racing throughout the week. One downside is that high demand can make available seating tough to come by when things are busy, leading to many customers watching games from the nearby sports bar.
Parlay and Teaser Odds
Wynn offers parlays on most straight bets and futures, with certain exceptions for markets that are correlated. It allows teaser bets for pro and college football and basketball, and have parlay cards, teaser cards, and reverse teaser cards available for pro and college football.
Here are the teaser and parlay odds tables, per the Wynn house rules:
|Football Teaser Odds||6 points||6.5 points||7 points|
|Basketball Teaser Odds||4 points||4.5 points||5 points|
|Off the Board Parlay||Payout|
