Gaming Intelligence Hot 50
Ian Williams has a lot on his plate this year as Wynn Resorts eyes a significant expansion of its online operations through new deals with GAN for sports betting and White Hat Gaming for iGaming. He is the perfect person for the job with over 20 years’ experience in the gambling sector, including president of online gaming for Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI), where he helped grow the Twinspires. com and BetAmerica.com horse racing advance deposit wagering businesses, and was responsible for spearheading the development of CDI’s real-money sports and iGaming businesses. He was brought in as chief operating officer of WynnBET in October 2021, and just two months later was promoted to president of Wynn Interactive, overseeing the WynnBET, WynnSLOTS and BetBull brands. WynnBet is currently live in nine US states, and was the first to be approved in Massachusetts. Wynn’s digital journey is only just beginning, and will need Ian’ experience.
