In addition to the WynnBET Sportsbook's ten live betting windows, the resort will feature the most sports betting kiosks in the state with more than 120.

Encore Boston Harbor also offers a website that helps guests create any type of sports bet on their personal mobile device. Guests can save – or copy – the generated QR code and scan it at any open WynnBET Sports Kiosk on property, called Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
