Indiana Sports Betting FAQ’s

With the 15th largest population amongst US states and plenty of sports fans (Colts, Pacers, Hoosiers, Fighting Irish, Boilermakers), Indiana brought a ton of new eyes to the industry. As a result, we received an inbox full of questions surrounding the launch of legal sports betting in the Hoosier State. Below are answers to some of the most popular questions we received.

Is sports betting legal in Indiana?

Yes, sports betting is now legal in the state of Indiana. While some states, such as Arkansas, chose to keep online sports betting illegal, Indiana legalized both online and in-casino sports betting throughout the state.

What sports can I bet on in Indiana?

We have seen different states ban different sports or even ban certain types of bets within a sport. The state of Indiana made any sport played by athletes 18+ years old legal to bet on. This obviously includes college football and college basketball. Furthermore, there are no restrictions on bet types allowed in the state at this time.

How do deposits and withdrawals work with online sportsbooks?

You can fund your online sports betting account in a number of different ways. These include: checking account, debit card, Visa/Mastercard, and in some cases even PayPal. When you withdraw any winnings, the funds you deposited are typically refunded first, then any remaining balance is paid to you in the same manner you deposited. It is possible to cash out your account in person at any of the state’s 15 sportsbooks

Is live betting legal in Indiana?

Not only is live betting legal, but it is the fastest-growing segment of the sports betting industry. Bet on lines as they move throughout a game, bet on the result of the next play, the next team to score, and much more with live betting. We highly recommend FanDuel, DraftKings, or PointsBet if live betting is something you think you will enjoy.

What is the largest sports betting app in Indiana?

While you might expect the leader in sports betting in Indiana to be either DraftKings or FanDuel (they clearly lead nationally), it is actually Caesars and their sportsbook in Horseshoe Hammond with the largest handle in the state. This is because the book is located just 30 minutes from downtown Chicago and sports betting is still illegal in Illinois.
