Indiana Sportsbook Locations

Indiana legalized sports betting in May of 2019 when Gov. Holcomb signed a bill that was passed by the state’s legislature approving of both in-person bets at sportsbook locations as well as bets placed with licensed providers online.

The state has over a dozen casinos that will be eligible to apply for a sports betting license. Each approved application will warrant these casinos to each offer three different skins. That means there can be three separate online sportsbooks for each licensed provider.

Under the state’s sports betting law, each licensed provider will have every wager taxed at a rate of 9.5 percent. Although 3.3 % of that will go to assist those suffering from problem gambling, the rest goes into the state’s coffers. That’s a lot of money.

Indiana will have legal and regulated sportsbooks pretty soon. Anyone 21 or older within the state’s borders will be able to bet online with their favorite sportsbooks. Visit the nearest casino or download the app of your choice to make real money on your picks.

Although the state’s gambling expansion has been legalized, it’s still underway. There have been temporary sports betting licenses already granted to some of the existing locations in Indiana, but they’re not active until after the September of 2019.

When the whole thing begins will depend on state regulators and providers themselves. Although we don’t know when Indiana sports betting will go live, we’ll follow all the developments in Indiana leading up to the launch and keep you updated when things are going to change.
