New York-listed supplier Scientific Games has agreed a partnership to launch sports betting and online gaming in the US for leading casino operator Wynn Resorts.

Wynn Resorts will initially launch in New Jersey utilizing several Scientific Games products and services.

This includes a sports betting and iGaming system, managed sports trading service, and Scientific Games' content aggregation system, which hosts more than 2,000 online casino games including player favorites 88 Fortunes, Raging Rhino, and Zeus.

Wynn has yet to confirm its plans for the New Jersey launch, but last year entered into a strategic partnership with UK and Malta-licensed betting operator BetBull to pursue sports betting opportunities in the United States.

Shares in Scientific Games Corporation (NSQ:SGMS) were trading up 7.71 per cent at $25.50 per share in New York Tuesday morning, while shares in Wynn Resorts Ltd (NSQ:WYNN) were trading up 0.8 per cent at $142.96 per share.
