Indiana sports betting became a reality just in time for Hoosiers to enjoy the start of the 2019 NFL season.
Within a month, it was available at 15 casinos and sportsbooks as well as via mobile platforms and apps across the state. The state’s 6 million people seemed to quickly embrace Indiana sports betting or perhaps it was a combination of geographically sitting among sports-crazy states that have yet to pas meaningful sportsbook rules.
Regardless, growth was swift in Indiana and the addition of FanDuel, Draft Kings and BetRivers apps only increased the spread of legal sports betting.
Is sports betting legal in Indiana?
Yes. And apparently not a minute too soon as sportsbooks in Indiana began immediately booking plenty of action.
The first day of sports betting was just before kickoff of the 2019 NFL season, where local fans could bet on their treasured Colts.
Where can I bet at Indiana sportsbooks?
In addition to online sportsbook operators such as BetRivers Indiana, 15 land-based locations were approved via Bill HB 1015 and three online operators (with mobile platforms and betting apps) launched by Oct. 3, 2019. They include:
