Football and basketball received the biggest chunk of the wagers. It’s hardly surprising that the vast majority of wagers are placed through iGaming portals. Convenience is one of the reasons why online casinos and bookies have become so popular.

Draftkings was the obvious winner in October, raking in 150 million dollars.
Others operators:

  • Fandual: an amazing 114 million
  • Betway: 40 million
  • Pointsbet: 40 million

BetRivers, TwinSpires, and WynnBET are also on the list, but their amount of wagers are significantly lower.

There will be an inflow of newcomers.

As you may be aware, sports betting has been on the rise in Indiana. Betting on the National Football League (NFL), basketball (NBA), and college football (NCAA) are three of the most popular forms of sports betting.

Because of this, other providers are planning to enter the market in the near future.
Several companies, including Ballybet, Fubo, and MaximBet, are awaiting approval to launch. Toward the end of 2021, they plan to open their online doors to the public.

It’s safe to say that Indiana’s sports betting market is thriving right now, with no sign of slowing down in sight. A total of $3.5 billion has been wagered so far this year. With two months to go in the year, we might easily pass the 4 billion barriers if this trend continues.
