Betting now allowed on badminton, volleyball, and wrestling

Expanded Sports Betting Options in Indiana: Non-Olympic Badminton and Wrestling Join the Lineup

Hoosiers in Indiana now have more options for sports wagering than ever before. The Indiana Gaming Commission has announced that sportsbooks in the state can now accept bets on professional badminton, beach volleyball, and college wrestling. This is the first time non-Olympic badminton and wrestling are allowed at Indiana sportsbooks.

Sports wagering operators are not required to offer wagers on these new leagues, but some may choose to provide multiple betting opportunities on games or individual events, including in-game wagers. 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.

In addition to traditional sports like football, basketball, and baseball, Hoosiers can now place bets on a wide range of 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.
