The online betting environment in Indiana is one of curious paradoxes. On one hand, Indiana state laws allow residents to participate in Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) betting, and online horse racing betting. Bizarrely though, it is actually a crime to participate in unlawful gambling and sports betting over the internet in the Hoosier State.
It that landscape, the scene has been set for sports betting to roll into the Indiana State Gambling marketplace to shake things up following the U.S. Supreme Court overturning the effective prohibition on state’s rights in terms of sports betting. Indiana’s lawmakers will now look to determine their own sports betting locations (land-based or online) and debate how the new sports wagering industry will be implemented in the state.
