BetMGM, part of the Roar Digital joint venture between GVC Holdings and MGM Resorts International, has secured approval to launch mobile sports betting in Indiana.

BetMGM received a temporary vendor license on 12 January for the Belterra Casino Resort and the State of Indiana Gaming Commission was happy with its performance, which has led to the authorisation.

In a statement, Sara Gonso Tait, Executive Director of the Commission, said: "BetMGM has substantially demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Commission that its mobile sports wagering operation meets the requirements of Indiana code article 4-38, the Commission’s emergency regulations and all Commission directives related to sports wagering activities.

"As such and pursuant to BetMGM’s launch date request, I hereby authorise BetMGM to commence mobile sports wagering activities within the state of Indiana on 25 February 2020."

Sports betting was launched in Indiana on 1 September last year and last month accumulated handle of $170.8m. 

BetMGM was launched in early September of last year, initially starting off in the state of New Jersey; last month it also began accepting wagers in West Virginia.
