William Hill has finally launched its mobile betting app and online betting site in the state of Indiana.
The sports betting giant William Hill has launched its mobile betting app and online betting site in the state of Indiana.
Bettors in the Hoosier State will now be able to bet online with William Hill from anywhere within Indiana’s state lines.

Indiana residents will be able to place bets on professional and collegiate sporting events with the app. William Hill’s mobile app is built upon its proprietary platform and offers a variety of bet types including props, parlays, futures and In-Play wagering.
The launch of William Hill’s app marks the operator’s latest effort to expand its presence in the Hoosier State after the bookmaker launched a land-based sportsbook at the Tropicana Casino in Evansville.
William Hill was able to launch its sportsbook at the Tropicana thanks to a partnership with Eldorado Resorts inked in 2018 which made the sportsbook operator Eldorado’s exclusive partner for digital and land-based sports betting.
After this deal was agreed, Eldorado acquired Tropicana Entertainment for $1.85bn, paving the way for William Hill to launch its land-based sportsbook.
William Hill in the US
With the operator’s online launch in Indiana, William Hill now offers its online sportsbook platform in Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Nevada, New Jersey and West Virginia. William Hill also provides trading services for the Rhode Island Lottery’s sports betting app.
Indiana’s online launch also marks the sportsbook operator’s latest effort to expand its presence across the US which has been made possible thanks to Eldorado’s acquisition of Caesars Entertainment in July.
Eldorado’s acquisition of Caesars also covered Caesars’ online operations and facilitated the launch of two William Hill-branded land-based sportsbooks in Iowa.
Earlier this month, William Hill and Caesars also announced a sports betting partnership with the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts.

The state’s Governor, Eric Holcomb, signed HB 1015 into law in May 2019, legalising land-based and state-wide mobile sports betting in the state of Indiana. Bettors can sign up for online sportsbook accounts remotely, from anywhere within the state.
Sports betting went live in Indiana on 1 September 2019, at the Ameristar Casino Hotel East Chicago, the Hollywood Casino & Hotel Lawrenceburg and Indiana Grand Racing & Casino
At the time of writing, bettors in the Hoosier State have several online sports betting options which include DraftKings, FanDuel, BetRivers, BetAmerica, PointsBet and BetMGM.
