Shaq may be waving goodbye to his minority stake in the Sacramento Kings basketball team. All for a good cause though. He’s joined with WynnBet, a gambling company.
Shaq Joining Gambling Company, Giving Up On Kings?
O’Neil bought a one percent stake in the Kings back in 2013. Since that purchase, he made approximately $6 million. Selling it now will give him close to 100% profit.
Recently reported, Shaquille O’Neal became a brand ambassador for a gambling company, WynnBet. Because of this, he is not able to keep his minority stake in the Sacramento Kings NBA team. Yes, he has to sell it. In a statement, Shaq says –
“I love working with my friends at Wynn Resorts and I am so excited to take WynnBET to new heights…Mobile sports betting is having a major moment, and I believe that WynnBET will be a powerful force in the industry.”
According to reports, he will be attending in-person fan-facing events, create original content with WynnBET, and interact as a guest with company media partners such as Blue Wire Podcasts, Cumulus Media, and Minute Media.
But that’s not all. O’Neal will also be launching ‘ShaqPot,’ a game housed inside the WynnBET app that is Free To Play (FTP).
