When thousands of fans attend next week’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Coors Field, there is a strong likelihood that many will spot rotating WynnBET signage behind home plate and elsewhere in the stadium.
Under Tuesday’s multi-year partnership between WynnBET and the Colorado Rockies, Wynn Resorts will integrate WynnBET branding throughout Coors Field. WynnBET, a division of Wynn Resorts, announced plans to run a bevy of in-game promotions during Rockies games that could result in prizes such as vacations to Wynn Las Vegas.
To celebrate the deal, WynnBET will offer an odds boost for Wednesday’s Rockies game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Users on the WynnBET mobile app in Colorado will receive odds of +500 on the Rockies (max $10 sports bet) for the matchup between National League West rivals.
Rockies’ struggles in 2021
At 37-49, the Rockies own one of the worst records in the National League. Expectations were low for the Rockies heading into the season after Colorado traded six-time All-Star third baseman Nolan Arenado in the offseason. The Rockies opened the regular season with 12 defeats over their first 16 games, including six losses in seven games to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the defending World Series champions.
But the Rockies have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks. The team ended June with a three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates, then took three of four against the St. Louis Cardinals over the weekend. While the Rockies have been dismal on the road with an MLB-worst 6-32 record, the club maintains one of the league’s top home marks at 31-17.
At 8-50 over their past 58 games, the Diamondbacks are in the midst of the worst 58-game stretch since the 1916 Philadelphia Athletics.
Meanwhile, the Rockies' 6-31 road record is the worst 37-game start to a season on the road since the 1982 Twins.
A true Battle of the Titans.

Through the partnership, Wynn will be designated as an official sports betting partner of the Rockies and will have access to a wide range of club assets. In addition, Wynn will host several hospitality events and activities on the main and outer concourses of Coors Field. Wynn will also choose select users to take part in on-field events, such as the ceremonial first pitch, the company said in a statement.
Beyond Colorado, WynnBET currently accepts sports wagers in New Jersey, Nevada, Michigan, Virginia, Indiana, and Tennessee. WynnBET also has several sports betting license applications pending in other states, the company said.
