IN Sports Betting Hits A Snag

The question of whether Indiana will allow sports betting by mobile devices is still up for debate in the state Legislature. The Indiana House voted 78-15 in favor of a bill that includes limiting the legalization of sports wagering to casino sites. The state Senate previously supported permitting online sports betting, so lawmakers face a deadline later this month for reaching agreement on what to allow. Some House members who oppose allowing sports bets by mobile devices call it a significant expansion of gambling that could lead to traditional casino games moving online.
