Indiana is one of the most active and competitive states regarding online sports betting. The Hoosier State has 12 legal and regulated online sportsbooks offering various betting options, including live in-game betting, live sports streams, boosted odds, parlays, and more. Indiana sports betting fans can also enjoy the benefits of loyalty programs, welcome bonuses, and referral rewards from some of the top brands in the industry.
However, not everything is smooth sailing for Indiana online sports betting. In June 2023, one of the newest entrants to the market, Bally Bet, had to go offline temporarily due to technical issues and regulatory compliance. Bally Bet, which launched in Indiana in May 2023, is a mobile-only sportsbook part of Bally’s Corporation, a gaming and entertainment company that owns and operates several casinos across the US.
Bally Bet’s offline status left some Indiana bettors frustrated and disappointed, as they could not access their accounts, place bets, or withdraw their winnings. Bally Bet apologised to its customers and promised to resolve the issues immediately. The company also said that it would honor all pending bets and provide compensation for any inconvenience caused by the outage.
While Bally Bet is working on getting back online, Indiana sports betting enthusiasts have plenty of other options. In fact, since Bally Bet went offline, two new online sportsbooks have launched in Indiana: Hard Rock and Caesars. These sportsbooks are well-known and reputable brands with a strong presence in the US gaming market.
Hard Rock Sportsbook Indiana is the online sports betting arm of Hard Rock International, which operates several casinos and hotels worldwide. Hard Rock Sportsbook Indiana offers a sleek and user-friendly app that features a wide range of sports and markets and exclusive promotions and rewards for its customers. Hard Rock Sportsbook Indiana also has a partnership with the Indianapolis Colts, making it an attractive option for fans of the local NFL team.
Caesars Sportsbook Indiana is the latest product of the merger between Caesars Entertainment and William Hill, two of the biggest names in the global gambling industry. Caesars Sportsbook Indiana boasts a massive selection of sports and events, competitive odds and generous bonuses. Caesars Sportsbook Indiana also integrates with the Caesars Rewards program, which allows bettors to earn points and redeem them for free play, hotel stays, dining, and more at Caesars properties.
With these two additions, Indiana online sports betting now has 13 active operators, making it one of the US’s most diverse and dynamic markets. Indiana bettors can expect more competition and innovation from these online sportsbooks as they vie for their share of the lucrative Hoosier State market. Whether football, basketball, baseball, or any other sport, Indiana online sports betting has something for everyone.
