Indiana Online Gaming

In March 2015, a bill was introduced in the Indiana state Senate that would have legalized internet betting on horse races. The bill passed through the Senate, but in May 2015, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence vetoed the bill, citing his long-term opposition to online gambling as the main reason for the decision.

In March 2016, Pence signed a bill that regulated online daily fantasy sports (DFS). The law requires operators wishing to offer contests in the state to pay a $50,000 licensing fee with a $5,000 renewal, which could be increased to as much as $75,000 annually. Oversight of the games will be handled by the state gaming commission, and fantasy sports are designated as a game of skill under the law.

In October 2018, a legislative study committee unanimously recommended that the 2019 General Assembly consider legalized and regulated sports betting in the state. The majority of the General Assembly's Interim Study Committee on Public Policy appeared to favor allowing sports bets to be placed using a secure mobile phone application.

In 2020, Sen. Jon Ford developed a bill for online casino and online poker in Indiana with the hopes of the bill passeing in 2021. The bill would allow Indiana’s 14 casinos and racinos to offer internet casino games and online poker. The planned Rocksino in Terre Haute would also be allowed to offer online gaming.
