The leading sports betting brand in the United States is live in Indiana. FanDuel Sportsbook entered the Indiana market in October 2019, mere weeks after going live with retail books at Blue Chip Casino and Belterra Casino Resort.
Players from the Hoosier State will be pleased to know that FanDuel’s Indiana sports betting product is every bit as good as it is in other states. We’d even go as far to say that we don’t have any major grievances with the site — at worst, minor gripes. This is a site that offers fair pricing, a slew of betting markets and bet types, a solid welcome bonus for new players, and a cool, responsive interface.
Read on to learn more about Indiana’s best sports betting site to date.
FanDuel isn’t messing around with its latest welcome offer. The sportsbook’s $1K No Sweat First Bet promo is simple and straightforward. To get started, click on any of the links on this page. There is no promo code required.

|New Player Bonus||$1K No Sweat First Bet|
This offer is for new FanDuel Sportsbook customers only. To get started, follow these steps:
After your initial wager settles and if it is a loser, your risk-free bonus of up to $1,000 will be issued to your account within 72 hours in the form of free bet credits. Free bet credits can be used in any increment but will only pay out the winnings, never the stake, on any successful wagers. Furthermore, free bet credits cannot be withdrawn until wagered at least once and will expire after 14 days, so use them before you lose them!
FanDuel doesn’t have a sportsbook loyalty program, but it partially makes up for it by rolling out new promos quite regularly.
The majority of these promos are based around the concept of insurance. So for instance, an NFL “Close Loss” insurance promo might offer players a refund on money line wagers if their team only loses by a few points. Or for NBA, if a team is winning after three quarters but loses, then a money line bet on that team might qualify for a refund. You get the picture. Usually, the bonuses won from these promos are capped at $25 or $50.
Another new type of insurance offered by FanDuel is Parlay Insurance. If you pick a five-leg parlay or higher and you win every bet but one, FanDuel will refund your bet, up to $25. Be sure to make sure this insurance promotion is being offered by checking the Promotions page before making your wager.
Sometimes, FanDuel goes a little bit further, offering promos that award bonuses based on how many points a money line wager wins by. So if you bet the Pelicans to win outright and they win by 11, FanDuel will award a $3 bonus per winning point, for a total of $33.
And on occasion, FanDuel Sportsbook IN will roll out free-to-enter contests with mammoth prize pools. These contests can take the form of survivor pools, answering betting questions, or something else. Definitely worth checking out.
FanDuel, like most other Indiana online sportsbooks, also features Daily Odds Boosts, which are hand-selected bets with better than market odds.
FanDuel Sportsbook in Indiana does not offer a loyalty program, and there hasn’t been much said about whether it eventually will reward players for their loyalty.
The closest thing available is the FanDuel Players Club, but that’s only targeted at daily fantasy sports players. The Club is a massive 11-tiered program where players earn access to special promos, monthly free play, FanDuel merch, and a slew of other benefits. Five FanDuel Points (FDPs) are awarded per $1 spent on DFS contests.
We’re hoping to eventually see something similar in the sportsbook, but for now, players will have to content themselves with the promotions. Check back for updates on the loyalty program.
Players must be at least 21 years of age to sign up for an account on FanDuel Sportsbook. In order to place real-money wagers, bettors need to have their location verified via geolocation technology somewhere in the state. However, account registration can happen from just about anywhere, as can viewing the lines or making a deposit.
For existing FanDuel daily fantasy players, registering is a cinch. Simply hit “Join Now” and choose the option to register with your FanDuel account. This will prompt you to enter your FanDuel DFS credentials, and from there you’ll only need to input a couple pieces of info to link your DFS and sportsbook account together.
Players completely new to FanDuel don’t exactly have it rough either. We’re talking two pages of registration forms, and maybe three minutes of your time.
Players will have to enter the following:
During the process, you’ll have the option to set responsible gambling limits (recommended), and set additional security options. Make your selections, then agree to the terms, and once your account is verified — which only takes a few seconds — you’re free to make your first deposit.
FanDuel Sportsbook is available on desktop (PC and Mac) and as a mobile app for Android and iOS powered devices.
Note that the sportsbook app is independent from FanDuel’s daily fantasy sports app, so existing DFS users will need to download it before getting started on mobile. This can be done by downloading the app from the Apple app store or the Google Play store.
When it comes to sports betting software, FanDuel sits head and shoulders above the competition. Players coming over from books like DraftKings will immediately notice just how vibrant the FanDuel Sportsbook interface is, with visuals and text that pop without being offensive on the eye. In fact, in July 2021, FanDuel updated their online sportsbook, both on desktop and mobile. This upgrade came with a bit of a facelift, and corrected some login and location check issues that some users were having.
What we first noticed is that FanDuel doesn’t hide its promotions behind a virtual wall. Instead, its best offers are on full display smack dab in the middle of the homepage.
Below that FanDuel implements a neat tabular structure that grants players ready access to popular events, live in-game matches, and the site’s daily odds boosts. Popular markets and a full list of betting markets are listed on the right.
On a market’s main page, bettors will find spread, total, and money line bets for today’s matches, futures, and live in-play matches for that market. Click into a game and find another set of tabs, which separates bets into popular wagers, same game parlays (if applicable), props, and more. It’s all laid out very nicely and takes a lot of the work out of finding your preferred bet.
For live games, FanDuel adds a visual interface where players can view the action in real-time. It’s a little rudimentary, but a nice touch nonetheless.
In order to place a wager, simply click on the line you want and it will appear on the bet slip. From the bet slip, which is conveniently on the right side of the page, never obscuring the main interface, players can keep their bet as a standard wager, convert it to a teaser, add more wagers to make it a parlay, or select round robin. They can also discard bets and review recent line changes.
A slew of account management features can be accessed from the platform, including quick access to the cashier, responsible gambling functionality, and betting histories.
FanDuel’s mobile sports betting app in Indiana is a near clone of its stellar desktop platform. All the features, markets, and lines found on desktop are also available on mobile. It’s just laid out slightly differently, due to screen real estate.
For instance, quick access to the homepage, betting markets, the bet slip, and account information are tucked away in a small menu located on the bottom of the app. This works to reduce clutter, while still allowing the most pertinent info to be displayed prominently in the main interface. However, the bet slip does eat up most of the screen’s real estate when open, forcing players to jump back and forth between it and the betting menu. It’s a slight inconvenience at most.
Otherwise, the excellent tabular structure remains intact, as do portions of the live betting visuals. The account management features, including the cashier, are all present on mobile, and everything is handled with tap/touch functionality.
Overall, we were impressed with the performance of the app, with most of the server hang-ups and stability issues of its early days now a thing of the past. Bet submission turnaround times were very quick, which is critical for in-play bettors. Yes, there was occasional lag, but it usually didn’t impede our ability to get down on a solid line.
FanDuel Indiana does a decent job in the cashiering department, offering a number of popular and accessible depositing and withdrawal options. They include:
For withdrawals, players can choose from ACH, the FanDuel pre-paid card, PayPal, and a check by mail (5-7 days processing time), which is pretty par for the course.
Our recommendation would be either to deposit with a debit card from a bank that won’t decline the transaction, or ACH. If neither works, the pre-paid card is your best bet, as it offers a near 100% approval rate.
Note: Be sure to check the FanDuel Sportsbook Indiana cashier or contact FanDuel support for the most up-to-date list of deposit and withdrawal methods.
Overall, FanDuel’s betting lines are solid, and often very good.
Pregame NFL and NBA lines are almost universally 20-cent spreads (-110 for both the favorite and underdog), which is the industry standard. We also noticed that future pricing tends to be more competitive on FanDuel, with the occasional value find available.
As for money lines, compared to its direct competitors, FanDuel offers players the best bang for their buck. Yes, other sites will often offer better pricing on one side — FanDuel tends to pay out better on favorites — but the spreads on FanDuel are generally a little tighter. For instance, we commonly noticed spreads like +148/-174 when the competition was offering +150/-182. This wasn’t always the case, but it’s common enough for us to conclude that FanDuel charges the least juice — at least for money lines — in the market.
Other points worth noting:
If punters only go with one out for their online sports betting needs — never recommended — FanDuel is probably their best bet, as there is no one area where the pricing is flat out bad. And oftentimes, it’s market best.
FanDuel Sportsbook in Indiana supports a decent array of betting markets, including popular staples like NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and college basketball and football (in-play prop betting on college sports is not allowed). Tennis and soccer matches are offered in droves across many leagues, and golf, boxing, and MMA are all represented.
The book also runs with some niche markets like Grand Prix motor racing, darts, cricket, Aussie rules football, and others. If there is a sport you went to bet on, chances are you can find it on FanDuel.
FanDuel does a tremendous job with the number of bets it offers. But if there is maybe one area where FanDuel Sportsbook lags a tad, it would have to be that it doesn’t get too creative with its bet formats. That’s not really a criticism, it’s just that primary competitor DraftKings has opened up its playbook a bit more.
All the standard types of wagers are represented, including point spreads, totals, money lines, in-play, futures, parlays, teasers, round robins, and two-way props. FanDuel also provides tons of alternative betting lines for most contests. And FanDuel does not suffer from a lack of bets, offering dozens, if not hundreds, of prop and derivative wagers for all major professional sporting events.
Truthfully, the sheer number of bets is really a treat. Want to bet the over/under on longest pass in the Colts game? Done. How about whether the number of points in the third quarter of the Pacers game will be odd or even? You got it. The list goes on and on, with enough individual wagers to satisfy the appetite of even the most ravenous bettor.
FanDuel also brings “Same Game Parlays” to the table, which in our opinion, was much needed. Traditionally, bettors can only select one wager per game for a parlay. FanDuel has introduced a new format in which multiple legs of the same parlay can originate from one game. Since implementing this new style of betting, we’ve seen just about every competitor in the industry attempt to create their own version of the Same Game Parlay. Nearly every sport can be included in a Same Game Parlay bet at this point, so it’s definitely worth checking out.
There is also the cash-out feature, which enables bettors to book smaller wins or losses by cashing out their tickets at in-play pricing, before a contest concludes. It’s a decent enough option to have, but the added juice makes its value questionable. Use sparingly.
Otherwise, FanDuel opts for traditionality over nuance, foregoing formats like betting pools, and other niches that can be found on alternative Indiana online sportsbooks.
Yes. In fact, it has two. The first opened on September 5, 2019 at Blue Chip Casino, just in time for the NFL Season. The retail outlet features betting windows, IGT PlaySports betting kiosks, and televisions showing all the big games.
Blue Chip also happens to be the licensing partner of FanDuel’s online sportsbook in Indiana.
Soon after opening at the Blue Chip, FanDuel opened its second retail book in Indiana, this one at Belterra Casino Resort in Florence. It’s primary features include video displays including a wall display, IGT PlaySports kiosks, and a sports ticker.
Both Blue Chip and Belterra are Boyd Gaming casinos. FanDuel has an existing relationship with Boyd and will continue to launch retail-books in Boyd casinos throughout the country in the coming years.
