The Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC) has revealed that Betr and WynnBet are both bringing an end to their operations in the Bay State. 

Betr ceased its operations in the state on February 16 which was approved by the MGC on February 21 during a public meeting. 

Customers from Betr will be able to withdraw funds from their accounts until March 16, after which Betr will send checks to Massachusetts customers who have not withdrawn their funds. 

WynnBet announced in mid-February that it was due to leave Massachusetts and the MGC has confirmed that the company is in the process of ceasing its operations in the state.  

Customers’ betting history will be accessible in their accounts until March 12 and customers’ future wagers that settle after that date will be contacted by WynnBet directly. 

Back in August of last year, it was reported that WynnBet was to close in multiple US states, stating at the time that operations in Massachusetts and Nevada would remain unaffected, with New York and Michigan under review. 

WynnBet wrote about the decision on their Massachusetts FAQs webpage: “For commercial reasons, WynnBet has decided to shut down mobile sports betting operations in Massachusetts. 

“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.” 

This follows on from the news last week that Caesars Entertainment had acquired the operations of WynnBet’s Michigan iGaming business.
