Your hometown sportsbook, BetIndiana, is coming soon for Hoosiers in Indiana to bet on sports. Read this BetIndiana review for the lowdown on what to expect when the latest IN sportsbook launches.
BetIndiana Review – What to Expect
While not much has been announced, a few things are certain. The BetIndiana Sportsbook is a new mobile sportsbook for Hoosiers across Indiana to bet on sports from anywhere in the state. Still subject to approval by the Indiana Gaming Commission, this BetIndiana review will be revamped with more info the moment they go live.
While Indiana sports betting has taken off since the start last summer, Hoosiers have had only a few options for sports betting. Naturally, big names like DraftKings Sportsbook and the popular BetRivers give players in Indiana great betting. That said, BetIndiana Sportsbook is a homegrown delight for Hoosier bettors.
The new mobile sportsbook is launching in partnership with Majestic Star Casino, based in Gary, Indiana. This partnership brings extensive operational experience from Majestic Star and the sports expertise of USA Sports Gaming to bring a top-notch online sportsbook to Indiana.
Straight From the Horse’s Mouth
Frank Ignatius, President and Founder of USA Sports Gaming (the owner of BetIndiana.com), wants Hoosiers to know that the new BetIndiana Sportsbook is a hometown hero.
“This is the perfect partnership for us. Like BetIndiana, Spectacle Entertainment [parent company of Majestic Star] is an independent operator in the gaming industry, born in the Midwest and connected to our local markets. We see great synergy here and we’re confident we will provide bettors in Indiana with a book unlike any other in the state.”
The online launch of BetIndiana Sportsbook will coincide with a brand-new retail location at Majestic Star Casino.
BetIndiana at Majestic Star Casino
As of Thursday, October 17th, 2019, this BetIndiana review is happy to say Majestic Star and BetIndiana have gotten provisional approval for their retail sportsbook at the casino in Gary, Indiana. While the go-live authorization is forthcoming, getting this license means construction on the new sportsbook is going full steam ahead.
That said, Majestic Star knows what Hoosiers want, and the main focus is on getting the online sportsbook launched. That way, you don’t need to be near Gary to bet with BetIndiana.
Promisingly, BetIndiana Sportsbook plans to be available in time for the Super Bowl. John Keeler, VP and general counsel for Spectacle Entertainment (the owner of Majestic Star), has confirmed that their focus is “a license for mobile betting, where patrons can place a wager on a sporting event via a mobile device anywhere in the state”.
So, Hoosiers who want to bet on the Colts this year will be able to soon enough. Let’s just hope they make it to the Super Bowl, with a 4-2 start to the NFL season.
The Majestic Hard Rock Gary
Well, despite all this talk of the new BetIndiana Sportsbook at Majestic Star, the casino is undergoing a name change in the next few months. A new partnership with Hard Rock International will see the casino become Hard Rock Gary. That can only be good news, with Hard Rock operating a great NJ sportsbook in Atlantic City.
This expertise is surely a strong indication that the BetIndiana retail sportsbook will be a treat. In this BetIndiana review, the excitement is palpable.
BetIndiana App Review
As stated, the BetIndiana app isn’t launched yet. That said, BetIndiana is dead-set on giving Hoosiers the best hometown sportsbook around. Like any good mobile sportsbook, expect the app to be available for both iOS and Android when it launches.
With the focus on mobile betting, the BetIndiana Sportsbook app is likely to be out in time for the Super Bowl, so save some space on your phone or tablet to get the app!
Likewise, as with any Android sports betting app, the BetIndiana app will have to be downloaded right from the BetIndiana website. That’s because Google doesn’t allow real-money gaming apps on the Play Store. Apple users can rest assured, the app will almost certainly be in the App Store on launch day.
Will There be a BetIndiana Promo Code?
Almost certainly, yes. Online sportsbooks, especially new ones, often offer a welcome offer via a promo code to attract new customers. So, expect a BetIndiana bonus code to be available.
Common bonus types that may come from a BetIndiana promo code include no-deposit bonuses, bet match bonuses, or a deposit match bonus. With the first type, just by signing up you could receive some free starting cash to get you betting right away.
Likewise, both deposit match and bet match bonuses require a deposit, naturally. With the first, whatever you deposit up to a certain amount will be matched. The latter means your first bet will get doubled (up to a certain amount) so that your bet can go even further.
Wait and see what the BetIndiana promo code might be. Either way, this BetIndiana review expects there to be a great welcome offer at launch.
