Betting now allowed on badminton, volleyball, and wrestling

Indiana sports fans now have more options to wager on their favorite sports, as 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.

This marks the first time that betting on non-Olympic badminton and wrestling is permitted at Indiana sportsbooks. While sports wagering operators are not required to offer wagers on these new leagues, 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.

The Indiana Gaming Commission 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 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.
