With Indiana having gone live with on-premise sports wagering September 1, 2019, the Indiana Gaming Commission (“IGC”) prioritized approving mobile Indiana sports betting, something that was approved at its Wednesday, September 25, 2019, meeting.  Five Indiana casinos opened their sportsbooks the first week of September in time for the kickoff of the NFL season.  There are a total of 13 casinos currently authorized to offer sports wagering in Indiana.  A 14th casino, Rising Star Casino, has submitted an application and is waiting for approval from the IGC.

Rush Street Interactive, the operator of French Lick Casino’s mobile platform, received permission to launch its sports wagering application on October 3, 2019.  The order authorizing the launch noted: “Rush Street has substantially demonstrated to the satisfaction of the commission that its mobile sports wagering operation meets the requirements [of Indiana’s statutes and regulations].”  Several other operators have submitted mobile wagering applications to the IGC and are working their way through the required approvals and testing.  While the operators hope to launch in early October, IGC executive director Sara Gonso Tait stated: “We set very high standards and we are pleased that several companies have been able to quickly work toward their proposed launch dates. We will continue to update the IGC website when operators substantially meet the regulatory requirements necessary for launch authorization.”
