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 online sports betting legal in Indiana?

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

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.
