Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson, Tim Howard, and Nick Mangold have been named brand ambassadors for WynnBet, Wynn Interactive’s online casino and sports betting app.
The three former professional athletes will appear in WynnBet advertisements, attend in-person events, and promote the app as a result of the collaborations, in addition to interacting as guests at Wynn Las Vegas’ Blue Wire Podcast Studio. In addition, WynnBet will conduct a number of in-app promotions and odds enhancements tailored to the ambassadors’ preferences and personalities.
Johnson played 11 seasons of professional football for Cincinnati and New England, as well as an exhibition boxing battle in June. WynnBet has stated that it will assist his charity initiatives in Miami in the future.
The best guest experience
Johnson said: “You know I love my fans, and Wynn is known for focusing on providing the best guest experience, which is why WynnBet is a perfect partner.
“This is all about connecting directly with sports betting fans to provide great entertainment and conversation through social media and in-person events.”
Howard, a former goalkeeper for Manchester United and Everton who has played for many Major League Soccer teams, now works as a TV analyst.
“I’m excited to join the WynnBet team, one of the most recognised names in sports and entertainment,” Howard noted.
“With MLS continually growing in popularity, I look forward to sharing my game previews and parlay picks with WynnBET customers.”
Supporting former team
During his 11-year professional football career with the New York Jets, Mangold was a seven-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman, and with the relationship, he hopes to grow his media exposure while supporting his former team.
“I’ve played football for almost my entire life, and never realised how entertaining it is to bet on the sport and interact with other fans about betting,” Mangold added.
“Now that I’m retired, I’ve enjoyed learning the role that betting and social interaction plays in enhancing my enjoyment of the game. The WynnBet app makes that easy for me in my current home state of New Jersey.
“I’m excited to partner with WynnBET to let fans know what an entertaining and user-friendly experience the app provides.”
