Sports betting in Indiana

Indiana became the tenth state to legalize sports betting following the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 2018.

Governor Eric Holcomb signed HB 1015 into law in May, legalizing land-based and state-wide mobile sports betting. Bettors can sign up for online sportsbook accounts remotely, from anywhere within the state.

On 1 September, Indiana’s sports betting market went live with the Ameristar Casino Hotel East Chicago, the Hollywood Casino & Hotel Lawrenceburg and Indiana Grand Racing & Casino launching land-based sportsbooks.

At the time of writing, 13 land-based sportsbooks and three online operators offer sports betting in the Hoosier State.

Bettors in the Hoosier State can place bets online with DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook and Bet Rivers.
