Betting now allowed on badminton, volleyball, and wrestling

Indiana Gaming Commission (IGC) has recently announced that sportsbooks in the state can now accept bets on professional badminton, beach volleyball, and college wrestling. This is the first time that betting on non-Olympic badminton and wrestling is permitted at Indiana sportsbooks. 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.

Sports wagering operators are not required to offer wagers on the new leagues, but some may choose to provide multiple betting opportunities on games or individual events, including in-game wagers. The IGC’s Approved Events for Sports Wagering list specifies that wagering is allowed on the BWF (badminton) World Tour, the Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour, and NCAA Division I wrestling.

The addition of these new leagues brings a variety of options for Hoosiers looking to expand their sports wagering horizons beyond traditional favorites like football, basketball, and baseball. Some categories include various sports within them, such as the 25 different Summer Olympic events and trials eligible for betting during the Paris games.

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.
