Indiana Sports Gambling Hits New High in October

With more routine NFL and college football schedules in place, Indiana’s legalized sports gambling industry returned to a more normal pace in terms of wagering.

Indiana’s sportsbooks measured $230 million last month, according to data from the Indiana Gaming Commission.

Gaming analysts say the sector saw new highs in revenue and handle as colleges and professional teams played a more normal sports schedule, despite the COVID-limits of fans in the stands.

“With a schedule that was more comparable to an ordinary October, Indiana’s sportsbooks fared well and offered a clearer read on where Indiana’s market stands,” said Dustin Gouker, lead analyst for “Interest in the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana University, and Notre Dame is helping as the state transitions from a market that relies on Chicago to one that is more reliant on local bettors.”
