Betr and WynnBET ceasing sports wagering operations in Massachusetts

A pair of Massachusetts Category 3 Sports Wagering Licensees are ceasing operations in Massachusetts: Betr and WynnBET.

Betr official ceased operations in the Commonwealth at 11:59 p.m. EST on Friday, 16 February. The Mass Gaming Commission approved Betr’s cessation request during a public meeting on Wednesday, 21 February 2024, in accordance with Commission regulations.

Betr customers will be able to withdraw funds from their accounts until 16 March 2024. Following that date, Betr will send checks to Massachusetts customers who have not withdrawn their funds. Those checks will be sent to the last physical address the company has on file.

The MGC awarded Betr a one-year, untethered Category 3 Sports Wagering Operator License on 23 February 2023. The company opened its Massachusetts sportsbook on 25 April 2023.

Customers looking to contact Betr can email or search online here. Make sure to check out the company’s Massachusetts FAQs page for more information on their cessation policies and procedures.

WynnBet is currently in the process of ceasing operations in the Commonwealth, in pursuance with Commission regulations. They are also planning to close sportsbooks in seven other states.

“For commercial reasons, WynnBET has decided to shut down mobile sports betting operations in Massachusetts,” the company wrote on their Massachusetts FAQs webpage. “However, retail sports betting will continue to be offered by our related company at the sports book [sic] and kiosks located at Encore Boston Harbor.”

Customers’ betting history will be accessible in their accounts until 12 March. Similarly, future wagers that settle ahead of WynnBets’ close date will be settled as normal, while customers with bets that settle after that date will be contacted by WynnBet directly.

Betr does not offer any future wagers at their sportsbook.

The MGC awarded WynnBet a one-year Category 3 Sports Wagering Operator License on February 23, 2023. Their license is tethered to Wynn MA, LLC d/b/a Encore Boston Harbor. The company opened its Massachusetts sportsbook on 10 March 2023.
