Sports betting in Indiana has just gotten more exciting with the addition of new events to the state’s list of approved sports wagering options. The Indiana Gaming Commission has announced that sportsbooks in the state can now accept bets on professional badminton, beach volleyball, and college wrestling. Specifically, wagering is allowed on the BWF (badminton) World Tour, the Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour, and NCAA Division I wrestling according to the IGC’s Approved Events for Sports Wagering list.

The new additions bring the total number of event categories approved for sports wagering in Indiana to 32, spanning from Aussie Rules Football to World Jai-Alai. Some categories include various sports within them, such as the 25 different Summer Olympic events and trials eligible for betting during the Paris games. This marks a significant development for sports betting enthusiasts in Indiana who have been eagerly awaiting more options beyond traditional favorites like football, basketball, and baseball.

The Indiana Gaming Commission also allows betting on activities that fall under the broadest definition of “sport,” including events like the July 4 Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest and category winners at the Academy Awards. Adults aged 21 and up can visit any of Indiana’s 13 state-regulated casinos, including the four in Northwest Indiana, to explore the different sports wagering opportunities and place bets in person. Alternatively, Hoosiers can use a computer or mobile device to bet on any IGC-authorized sport from anywhere in the state using one of more than a dozen mobile sports wagering operators affiliated with Indiana casinos, such as DraftKings and FanDuel.
