State Gaming Official Haven’t Confirmed Indiana Sports Betting Launch Dates
The state gaming officials couldn’t confirm to the media the launch dates of other sports betting venues that have been announced. The deputy director of the Indiana Gaming Commission, Jenny Reske, told the media that there are a few sportsbooks operators that have not met the regulatory requirements.
None of the sportsbook operators that have announced their intentions to launch in Indiana has mentioned anything regarding mobile sports betting. Spokespeople for Caesars and Penn National Gaming has previously told the media that the rollout of mobile sports betting will take a while.
Reske told the media on Monday that most operators will launch in retail first before they launch in the online space.
Once the sportsbooks have launched, players will be able to place bets on professional sports leagues such as NFL, MLB and NBA. In addition to that, players who are fans of sports such as darts, cricket, sailing and rugby and many others will also be able to place bets
