Indiana Legal Sports Bets Jump to Nearly $92M In 2nd Month

The second month of legal sports betting in Indiana saw nearly three times as much money wagered than in its opening month, with much of that surge coming from bets placed using mobile devices instead of at casinos.

Gamblers wagered a total of $91.7 million on sports in Indiana during October, compared to $34.5 million in September, according to a report released by the Indiana Gaming Commission.

The state collected about $1 million in sports gambling taxes last month, up from about $800,000 during the first month of legal sports wagering in September.
