Legal sports betting is a reality in Indiana and Hoosiers have been placing bets in person since the official launch date on September 1 – just in time for the start of the NFL season.

The initial roll out was across retail properties with the dozen or so state authorized casinos quick to open sportsbooks, and all in partnership with existing operators, including such experienced providers as FanDuel and DraftKings.

Mobile and online betting took longer to implement with registration and geo-location technology having to be set-up and tested. But it’s now all systems go in Indiana and bettors are wagering their hard-earned cash via mobile-friendly websites or apps.

William Hill

This UK-based operator has forged a partnership with Tropicana Eastville for its retail sportsbook and already supports an app in the New Jersey Sportsbook market.

Having invested heavily in Nevada, where they have 100+ sportsbooks in operation, they know a thing or two about what US bettors want in an app. And their platform is certainly one of the best in terms of speed, thanks to its slimmed down design, and ease of navigation. Granted their welcome bonus is less generous than some of their competitors but we still wouldn’t put any IN bettor off from downloading their app.

Sign up today, deposit $50 and get a $50 free matched bet (21+. T&Cs apply)

DraftKings Sportsbook

This industry heavy is quickly becoming a favorite with Indiana sports bettors having partnered with Caesars Entertainment and Penn National, both of which run two casinos in the state.

As far as apps go this is one of the best out there and whether you’re a seasoned pro or a complete rookie when it comes to betting, you are going to be blown away. Clean-looking, fast and a breeze to navigate, you will be able to get your bet on quickly and their Live In-Game offering is slick to say the least. Refer a friend and they’ll give you $100, which is on top of their already generous first deposit bonus.

Sign up today for a risk-free bet up to $200 as well as a first deposit bonus up to $500 (21+. T&Cs Apply).

FanDuel Sportsbook

Another fantasy sports behemoth houses retail sportsbooks at Beltera Casino Resort in Florence and Blue Chip Casino, Michigan City. The operator has online books and apps in New Jersey, where its #1 in terms of revenue, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Like DraftKings, this operator benefits from name recognition and an already large database of fantasy sports customers in the Hoosier State, who are able to link their DFS and sportsbook accounts. And why shouldn’t they when the app is simply awesome to use and arguably the best of the bunch. We particularly love their daily promos, which can help ease the pain of close losses, while new customers can take advantage of a huge risk-free bet offer.

Sign up and deposit today and your first bet is ‘risk-free’ – get up to a $500 refund in site credit if you lose (21+. T&Cs Apply)

Caesars Sportsbook

Partnered with Horseshoe Hammond on Lake Michigan, just a stone’s throw from Illinois, and one of the bigger players in the competitive NJ sports betting market.

They’ve owned one of the best casinos on the Las Vegas strip for many years and since spreading their wings into the burgeoning sports betting market, they’ve soared. Their NJ app has been getting rave reviews, including from us, and what they’ve rolled out in Indiana is just as good. But don’t just take our word for it.

Other online sportsbooks we hope to see open to Hoosiers include bet365, 888, and BetMGM. We eagerly anticipate the launch of the PointsBet app for Indiana, an Australian offering players something a little different (Points Betting), with variable payouts based on the accuracy of the prediction.

We have put together this guide to help you through the process of choosing a suitable sportsbook app, beginning with what we consider to be some important criteria.

  1. We love the convenience of betting via an app and an easy download process, which is hassle free and doesn’t eat up too much of your data is essential.
  2. A mobile-friendly interface that allows for easy navigation is another biggie that earns sportsbook apps top marks from us. Finding the market you want and getting your bet on quickly should be a painless process.
  3. Something more than standard when it comes to betting markets is always appreciated as why restrict yourself to straight bets? A good selection of teasers and props, for example, make betting so much more fun and ultimately help us stay in the black profits-wise.
  4. Value really matters in that respect too and anyone serious about making money should be shopping around for the best lines as a rule. Taking advantage of those ‘nickel lines’, when a book moves to a lower price (from -110 to -105, for example), can give the more savvy bettor the edge in the short and long term.
  5. Players should absolutely be capitalizing on any available sign-up bonuses, which can either be in the form of cash, free play or a first deposit bonus. As any bonus can only be claimed once, it’s important to find a suitable one based on your wagering style and then maximize it.
  6. Being able to fund your account through a variety of means and know your funds are being safely held can’t be underestimated, as is the ability to cash out quickly. We all need to bet with confidence and that is where the new breed of regulated sportsbooks score highly over the less legit offshore books.
  7. More bets than ever are now being placed live or In-Play / In Game, once the action has got underway, and it allows us to either add on to our original position or hedge out of it by backing the other side. For that reason, a fast-moving data feed with minimal delays is a requisite.
  8. Reliable customer service 24/7 and through a variety of communication channels – email, live chat and even Twitter these days – is reassuring to have when we need it.

Fortunately for Indiana bettors there are now plenty of online sportsbooks to choose from and the ones we are going to mention here all have quality mobile gambling apps to recommend them.

More are surely on the way as under Indiana law each licensee can partner with third party service providers to operate up to three online sportsbooks or “skins”. That can only be good news for Hoosiers as more competition among operators will lead to more favorable odds, offers and promotions for bettors – watch this space!
