While the Hoosier State has hosted legal betting sites since September 2019, it’s been dominated by DraftKings and FanDuel for the past two years. The state has proven to be a hotly-contested battlefield between the two sports betting giants, with DraftKings taking the crown from FanDuel in 10 of the last 19 months.
DraftKings Indiana By the Numbers
DraftKings holds the largest market share among sports betting operators in Indiana since January 2022 at 34.12 percent. FanDuel follows closely behind at 32.69 percent. DraftKings’ $77.5 million in bets processed this July put them significantly ahead of FanDuel, who accepted $62.7 million over the month. No other sportsbook handled over 10 percent of the state’s total betting in July.

Sports bettors spent $203.7 million in Indiana this July, while operators combined for $23.4 million in revenue.
