Indiana issues 12 temporary sports betting permits
The Indiana Gaming Commission has issued 12 temporary sports betting permits to casinos and off-track betting facilities in the state, ahead of the anticipated launch of its legal sports wagering market later this year.
The Temporary Certificate of Authority can be issued by the state regulator while their license applications are processed, allowing them to launch wagering while the Commission decides whether or not to issue a full license, per Indiana’s Sports Wagering Statutes.
Twelve of the state’s licensed gaming venues were handed out temporary operating approval last week (July 12). The Penn National Gaming-operated Ameristar Casino East Chicago, Boyd Gaming’s Belterra Casino Resort and Blue Chip Casino and four Caesars Entertainment properties have been cleared to launch from September 1.
