Wynn Resorts, a developer and operator of high-end hotels and casinos, has filed six trademarks for “Wynn” and “Desert Inn” in order to embrace non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the metaverse.
According to the applications, which were submitted with the USPTO on March 17, 2023, the company intends to provide retail store services supplied in the metaverse that feature virtual goods such as casino chips, gaming tables, slot machines, clothes, drinking ware, and more.
The company also intends to provide virtual environments in which users can visit resort hotels, casinos, bars, and restaurants, as well as use casino services.
The applications also mention NFTs and an online marketplace where users can buy, sell, and trade “image files containing digital charms” authenticated by NFTs.
Michael Kondoudis, a trademark attorney who specializes in Web3-related trademark registrations, tweeted about the filings.
Wynn Resorts is not the only casino operator that has shown interest in Web3; in September, PokerGO announced the debut of its Genesis NFT collection in collaboration with NFT Stadium.
Meanwhile, BetOnline, one of the world’s largest online sports betting, poker, and casino platforms, became the first to accept ApeCoin as a payment method a year ago.
