Rush Street Interactive and the French Lick Casino Resort have launched the first legal online sportsbook in Indiana. will be available both online and mobile from today (3 October), with users able to place wagers on a wide range of sporting events.

Players can register and bet instantly online or mobile, as Indiana sports betting regulations do not require in-person registration at a casino. Subject to approval by the Indiana Gaming Commission, players will receive a match bonus up to $250 on their first deposit.

Confirmation of the official launch comes after the Indiana Gaming Commission gave its approval to the new digital sports betting service.

“What better time to launch than in the height of football season, the start of baseball playoffs and just before basketball returns,” Rush Street Interactive president Richard Schwartz said.

“We know our players are really going to appreciate the convenience of being able to place wagers online anywhere in Indiana, adding to the excitement of these sporting events.

“Our experience and success in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York allows us to zero-in on what players want – a massive range of sports betting options, through reliable and scalable technology, with responsive customer service, and fast payouts.”

Rush Street Interactive also serves as the sports wagering partner for the French Lick’s retail sportsbook. The facility, which opened last month, can accommodate approximately 100 guests and features a number of self-serve betting kiosks and staffed over-the-counter betting windows.

In Pennsylvania, Rush Street Interactive has launched two differently-branded apps – BetRivers and PlaySugarHouse – though the SugarHouse-branded offering is to be brought under the Rivers brand.
