Legal sports betting in the United States continues to expand with Indiana joining the current list. Driving this expansion is strategic partnerships between land-based casinos and sports betting gaming specialists. As reported by www.prnewswire.com, this is the case with Indiana’s first land-based sportsbook.
Is Sports Betting Legal In Indiana?
Indiana Grand Racing & Casino is part of Caesars Entertainment as a Las Vegas gaming giant. It has partnered with Scientific Games to launch its retail sportsbook solutions. This is the fifth state where Caesars and Scientific Games have joined forces to deliver sports betting solutions. This partnership is the first of six ventures in Indiana as part of Caesars’ network of real money gambling venues.
The other five properties are still on schedule to open for business later this month. Scrambling to take advantage of the football season, Indiana’s sports betting capabilities will rapidly expand.
Indiana Grand Racing & Casino will have full betting capabilities with the use of Open Sports. This is Scientific Game’s product suite which powers the casino’s online sports betting offering. The launch includes software solutions that enhance the betting experience with a seamless user application.
Plans include further launches of the Open Sports suite at Horseshoe Hammond and Horseshoe Southern Indiana Hotel and Casino. The sports betting partnership between Caesars and Scientific Games will also be expanded to Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. Also on the list are a trio of off track betting locations in Indianapolis, Clarksville and New Haven.
