Wynn Resorts Ltd. unveiled its WynnBET sports wagering app in Tennessee Friday, the sixth state in which the mobile betting program is available, the company said.

The Sports Wagering Committee of the Tennessee Education Lottery Corp.’s board of directors authorized the app, which is available on Apple and Android devices.

Wynn will carry out its previously announced marketing collaboration with the National Basketball Association Memphis Grizzlies with activations planned at May 10, 11, 13, and 14 home games at FedExForum.
