The Debut of Online Sports Betting for Indiana

October 11, 2019

Indiana has become the latest in a long line of US states that have moved to legalize online sports betting. The Hoosier State saw its first sports betting providers go online in October 2019. Sports betting online for Indiana residents is legal for anyone 21 years of age or older.

The first two online sportsbooks to appear in the state are BetRivers Sportsbook and DraftKings. Both of these sportsbooks has established a partnership with a live gaming venue in Indiana. This is required by state law. The new sportsbooks have also launched mobile betting platforms for phones and tablets.

Indiana now becomes the seventh state to offer legalized online sports betting. This move has put pressure on neighboring states such as Illinois to introduce their own legislation or risk falling behind in the generation of gambling revenues.

The states which currently permit sports betting with DraftKings are Indiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, West Virginia. In New York and Mississippi there are only offline sportsbook options. DraftKings is moving to position itself to become a major player in the online sports betting market.

The other two states which allow online sports betting are Iowa and Nevada. Sports betting has long been a primary gambling activity in Nevada. Millions of dollars are wagered each year on professional and collegiate sports. There are those within the professional sports industry that have endorsed legal online sports betting, and others in athletics have endorsed college betting.

Most states that have taken steps to legalize online gambling have also placed a focus on mobile wagering. Players appreciate the ability to make sports bets with their Android or iOS mobile device. In some states crafting the legislation to allow mobile betting has been difficult, but progress continues to be made.

Some predict that by the end of 2020 there will be as many as 20 or more US states with legalized sports betting.
