Pennsylvania-based Penn National Gaming Inc. (Nasdaq: PENN) announced that the Indiana Gaming Commission has approved the company’s application to offer online sports wagering in Indiana. Penn National says it plans to launch its Barstool Sportsbook mobile app on iOS and android, as well as for desktop users, on Tuesday.
The company says Indiana will become the fourth online sports betting market, following previous launches in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Illinois.
“We are thrilled to be launching our online Barstool Sportsbook in Indiana at the start of the NBA’s new playoff format,” said Jay Snowden, president of Penn National. “Our retail Barstool Sportsbooks at Ameristar Casino East Chicago and Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg have been very well received by our customers since opening this past December, and now Hoosiers from across the state will be able to engage with Dave Portnoy, Dan ‘Big Cat’ Katz, and all of the Barstool personalities through the Barstool Sportsbook app.”
Penn National says it will offer promotional wagers following the launch of the mobile Barstool Sportsbook, including risk-free bets, parlay insurance, and an array of wagering options related to the upcoming NBA Playoffs and Indianapolis 500.
