DraftKings started its journey into the sports betting frontier in the area of the country from where its vast success in the daily fantasy industry was born – the Northeast. It’s subsequently began to carve a path into a handful of other states.
On Oct. 3, DraftKings Sportsbook had its Midwest coming out party after receiving approval from the Indiana Gaming Commission to begin accepting wagers. The Indiana version of DK Sportsbook is operated by Penn National Gaming and serves as an online skin for Ameristar East Chicago Casino.
There are 13 retail sportsbooks already in operation in the Hoosier State. However, DraftKings Sportsbook becomes one of the first two mobile platforms in the state. The other is operated by Rush Street Interactive through the online license of French Lick Casino. A third mobile operator may join the fray later in October.
Wide array of bet types, sports available for Indiana residents
With in-person registration not a requirement for mobile betting in Indiana, opening a DraftKings Sportsbook account is a straightforward process for residents.
The DraftKings Sportsbooks app is easy to locate in the App Store and is optimized for use on all iOS devices. Android users will need to download the app directly from the DraftKings website. First-time sign-up is straightforward and accessible through our exclusive DraftKings Sportsbook sign-up link.
Once in the app, the sign-up process is essentially self-explanatory. Registrants will need to provide all requested personal information. Before an account is finalized, however, registrants will also have to be geolocated via DK Sportsbook’s player locator extension, in order to ensure they are physically located within state lines.
Upon having their account confirmed, bettors gain immediate access to DK Sportsbook’s wide array of wagering options. In terms of bet types, these include popular selections such as:
- Point spread betting
- Totals (over/under) betting
- Moneyline betting
- In-game betting
- Parlay bets
- Game and player proposition wagers
- Pool betting (both private and public)
- Flash bets (in-play betting)
Hoosier State bettors also have no shortage of choices with respect to the sports they can place wagers on on DK Sportsbook. These include the following (with the possibility of more being added in the future):
- Australian Rules Football
- Canadian Football
- College Football
- Rugby Union
User-friendly interface welcomes new users
Both the wagering and sports options are easy to locate and navigate, even for a first-time visitor to the DK Sportsbook platform. Upon activating their account, users are greeted with a user-friendly lobby that highlights current live in-game/match bets available across any sports that may be active at that particular time.
Those wishing to narrow their focus to a particular sport simply browse to the top of the screen, where they’ll find a horizontal bar with links to bets for specific sports leagues such as NFL, NBA, MLB and NCAA Football. There is also an “A-Z Sports” dropdown tab toward the end of the horizontal list that once clicked, offers bettors a look at every sport DK Sportsbook offers wagers for.
Above the sports listings is another horizontal bar that provides users with broader in-site navigation options.
These consist of:
- My Bets
- Live In-Game
- Flash Bet
Secure, easy-to-use deposit/withdrawal options aplenty
Indiana residents will have plenty of options at their disposal for funding their DK Sportsbook accounts. Likewise, they’ll be able to receive any subsequent withdrawals through a variety of methods.
Current deposit options on DK Sportsbook are the following:
- Play+ card
- Credit/Debit Card
