Sports Betting in Indiana Expands: Badminton, Beach Volleyball and College Wrestling Now on the Table

Betting on Badminton, Volleyball, and Wrestling Now Permitted

Indiana Gaming Commission has recently approved sportsbooks to accept bets on new sports leagues beyond the traditional favorites like football, basketball, and baseball. Hoosiers can now bet on professional badminton, beach volleyball, and college wrestling. This includes the BWF (badminton) World Tour, Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour, and NCAA Division I wrestling. These additions make it the first time non-Olympic badminton and wrestling bets can be placed in Indiana sportsbooks.

Sports wagering operators have the option to offer wagers on the new leagues, with some providing multiple betting opportunities on games or events, including in-game wagers. With these additions, there are now 32 event categories approved for sports wagering in Indiana, covering a wide range of sports from Aussie Rules Football to World Jai-Alai. In certain categories, there are even more sports available for betting, such as the 25 different events during the Summer Olympics and the trials during the Paris games.

In addition to traditional sports betting options, Hoosiers can also place bets on unique activities such as the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest or the winners of specific categories at the Academy Awards. Individuals who are 21 and older can visit any of Indiana’s 13 state-regulated casinos or use a computer or mobile device to bet on authorized sports from anywhere in the state. Over a dozen mobile sports wagering operators affiliated with Indiana casinos, including popular brands like DraftKings and FanDuel, allow residents to place bets easily.
