Wynn Sportsbook Review
The Wynn Las Vegas is the masterpiece of Steve Wynn. But so were other resorts on the Strip, like the Bellagio, Mirage and Treasure Island. The wealthy businessman played a pivotal role in the expansion and resurgence of the Las Vegas Strip in the 1990s. On average, more than 100,000 visitors land in Las Vegas every day. Many of them will find their way to this luxurious destination in the Wynn and Encore.
- Not a bad seat in this newly renovated house.
- Easily accessible within the Wynn resort.
- Latest betting technology for beginners or experts.
- If you’re staying at another resort, the Wynn is a hike.
- No expert opinions or analysis offered on sporting events.
- If you’re on a budget, this isn’t the place for you.
Wynn Las Vegas Sportsbook
The Wynn property, ever since its opening in April 2005, continues to evolve.
The Encore, another hotel tower, was added three years after completion of the Wynn. The resort complex at the north end of Las Vegas Boulevard has a total of almost 5,000 rooms, making it the world’s seventh-largest hotel.
Over the years, the Wynn has added nightclubs, restaurants, shops and an exclusive golf course. Next up is the Wynn Paradise Park, which will include more hotel space and a 1,500-foot-long lagoon for water skiing and other water sports. This $1.5-billion project, which is scheduled to be completed in 2019, will replace the golf course.
So, with all these plans, a facelift to the Wynn Race and Sports Book didn’t come as a huge surprise. And it got more than just a fresh coat of paint. This massive room underwent an extensive renovation and reopened to visitors in August 2017.

Upon arrival, guests are presented with a high-definition LED video wall spanning 137 feet in width and 11 feet in height. There are TVs big and small on this wall and throughout the curved room. If you’re not prepared, this could be a bit of information overload with multiple screens displaying different sporting events.
In what seems to be a trend with any sports book renovation these days, a huge bar has been added to the middle of the room. There’s also a new restaurant attached to the book called Charlie’s Bar and Grill. It’s in the perfect spot to get a bite to eat and watch your favorite team.
The Wynn also kept the horse racing player in mind with dozens of personal stations, so a handicapper can monitor multiple racetracks without bothering the crowd.
If you’re looking for class and comfort, you have found a home in the Wynn.
Wynn Online Betting
The Wynn has its own betting app. It can be downloaded to wager on sporting events or horse racing, and you don’t have to be in the sports book to use it. Betting on your phone will certainly help you jump the queue for major events, like the Super Bowl.
If you would rather go the traditional route, the Wynn offers an ample number of betting windows below the huge LED wall. If you just want to pick the winner of a game, then the money line is your bet. But there’s also wagering on the point spread, over/under, prop bets, futures, parlays and other exotics.
If you want to bet in Las Vegas or at home, there’s other online options available — like Bovada, TopBet and Betonline.
