Indiana Sportsbooks Hit $160 Million December, Boosting Industry into 2020, According to PlayIndiana.com Analysts | Markets Insider
10th January, 18:23LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --Â Indiana retail and online sportsbooks capped their inaugural year in the state by surpassing $160 million in bets in a month for the first time. Indiana's record handle in December pushed the state to more than $430 million in bets since the first wager was accepted in September, a staggering pace that has set the stage for a momentous 2020, according to analysts from PlayIndiana.
"Indiana's ascent to one of the largest sports betting markets in the country has been impressive by most any measure," said Dustin Gouker, lead analyst for PlayIndiana. "The question for 2020 is whether Indiana can sustain its rate of expansion, especially as neighboring states become more likely to legalize sports betting. That has already happened in Michigan, which could take a bite out of the handle at some of northern Indiana's retail sportsbooks."
"Indiana's strong start is unquestionably tied to the state's relatively early launch of online sports betting," Gouker said. "Online sports betting should make up an increasing share of the state's handle, too. That will help steady Indiana's sports betting industry, even as increasing competition from neighboring states affect retail sportsbooks, which is inevitable."
